From PAINES PLOUGH
Tobes is young, free and having a ball. Off.
He’s successfully ignored his lump for two years but it’s starting to get in the way - cramping his style and, worse, affecting his sex life. So now there are pants to be dropped, and decisions to be made… It’s a real ball ache. A comedy about growing up and manning up from critically acclaimed writer Luke Norris (SO HERE WE ARE, Royal Exchange; GOODBYE TO ALL THAT, Royal Court).

Rob Heron & the Tea Pad Orchestra are one of the hardest working bands in the UK roots circuit. They play their own unique brand of Western Swing, Blues, Gypsy Jazz and Country, or “North Eastern Swing” as they’ve coined it. Influenced by early 20th century American music, with the addition of “razor-sharp” solos, great arrangements and original songs; their music harks back to a golden age whilst staying perfectly modern. The songs are penned by Rob Heron, a crazy fool for country music and a full time dandy-cowboy. His songs are full of character, satire, and good old fashion hollerin’!
