Fresh from a US and Canadian tour, Matt Panesh is back at the Stephen Joseph Theatre next month with an award-winning show.

Called 300 to 1, it is the latest show from Matt also known as the comedy rhymester Monkey Poet.

See a schoolboy re-enact the macho film 300 to the ghostly World War One poets Wilfred Owen and Siegfried Sassoon.

Hear reasons for and against “Thesweetness of dying for your country.”

At the 2014 Edinburgh Fringe it was named winner of the Three Weeks’ Editor’s Award.

Having been developed and rehearsed by Matt and director Gareth Armstrong through the Stephen Joseph’s Artist Residency scheme 300 to 1 now comes back to be performed on the McCarthy stage on Tuesday April 14 at 7.45pm.

Matt Panesh said: “The experience of being in a working theatre to develop my own show had a profound effect. The resulting show won me my first award at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
