Julian Clary’s adaptation of his best-selling book The Bolds heads to the Unicorn for Christmas 2023, with live music and songs by Julian Clary and Simon Wallace.

How long can they keep their beastly secret under their hats? Join Mr and Mrs Bold and their twins Betty and Bobby as they navigate work, school and friends whilst trying to keep up their disguise.

The Bolds runs from Sat 11 Nov – Sun 31 Dec 2023 at the Unicorn. Full details on the Unicorn website.

Kandaka Moore in Mid Life

Kandaka Moore is currently performing in Mid Life, a co-production between Bristol Old Vic and Diverse City. The production started at Bristol Old Vic before playing for a short time at the Barbican and will finish back at the Old Vic.

The taboo-smashing production is based on interviews with 50 women in Bristol experiencing menopause, this BSL-interpreted and Audio Described production is a rip-roaring exploration into one of life’s often-vetoed topics.

Kandaka’s role in the piece is as an actor, composer and singer. In Stage Talk’s four star review of the show Simon Bishops writes, “Flitting between these three [performers] and adding an almost metaphysical presence is the sylph-like Kandaka Moore, singing a background narrative with a deliciously intoxicating voice, while acting as an ‘invisible’ link between the women”.

Kandaka Moore in Twelfth Night at The Globe

Actorum’s Kandaka Moore is soon to begin rehearsals for Twelfth Night, directed by the Globe’s artistic director, Emma Rice. The production is part of the Globe’s summer season, Summer of Love. Kandaka will be featured in the ensemble, as well as understudying Viola.

The Globe’s website tells audiences to ‘expect cross-dressing, hijinks and bittersweet hilarity as Emma Rice directs Shakespeare’s timeless, soulful and irrepressible comedy’, which will also be accompanied by pre and post-show talks, introductory lectures and theatre company Q&As. More information can be found here.

‘Love is at the centre of our human experience. It provides us with the best of times and the worst of times and reminds us that we are alive, connected and part of something greater than ourselves. A little like theatre if all goes well.’
– Emma Rice on the Summer of Love season

Twelfth Night runs at The Globe from 18th May until 5th August.
