Local musician, raconteur and artist Mike Hatchard will be performing his one man play prior to taking it to the Edinburgh Festival where he is a regular fixture.
The Cocktail Pianist premiered at the Brighton Festival in 2017 to great acclaim and it is the story of Bernard Halfpen who relates the ups and downs of his career and personal relationships while sitting at the piano at a nondescript hotel.
