A multi-cultural evening of entertainment is on the cards for visitors to Oundle’s Stahl Theatre on Sunday.

Comedian Henning Wehn, self-styled German comedy ambassador to the UK, will perform in the Adamson Modern Languages Gala Evening.

Oundle School pupils will appear alongside Henning, with performances reflecting the cultural life of the countries whose languages they study, from flamenco to La Fontaine’s fables.

All profits go towards the facilities currently being completed at the Adamson Building for Languages. This show starts at 4pm and tickets cost £10.

Also at Oundle’s Stahl Theatre tomorrow will be a play called Graft, which traces 10 chapters in the life and many deaths of Harry, a dedicated actor who is often out of work, rejected and desperate to practise his craft.

Written by Steven Berkoff and performed by George Dillon, Graft is said to be a “masterclass in the craft of acting and a savage and cautionary tale about the perils of entering the theatrical profession.”

This award-winning show, focusing on the plight of actors, will take place at 7.45pm. Tickets cost £9.50.

The Stahl Theatre is in West Street, Oundle.
