Join multi-award winning cartoonist, illustrator, writer, poet and satirist Martin Rowson for an evening of conversation and live drawing with Omnibus Theatre’s artistic director Marie McCarthy and Tony’s Last Tape star Philip Bretherton.
Martin Rowson’s work has appeared regularly in The Guardian, The Daily Mirror, The Times, The Spectator, The Morning Star, The New Statesman, The Scotsman, The Irish Times, The Erotic Review, The Racing Post, The New European and practically every other publication you can think of, apart from The Sun, who’ve never asked him. His vibrant work has served as satire and commentary on British and global politics for over 35 years.
Philip Bretherton will be appearing as Tony Benn in our upcoming production of Tony’s Last Tape. TV credits include: Coronation Street, (ITV), Footballers’ Wives, (ITV) and As Time Goes By, (BBC1).

Martin Rowson will be drawing a special cartoon-portrait of Philip Bretherton live in the intimate setting of our Studio Upstairs, while they engage conversation, which may (or may not) touch on theatre, art, literature, culture and British politics.
The lively discussion will be followed by a question and answer session where audience members will have the chance to ask Martin, Marie or Philip their burning questions.
