A light-hearted comedy about brotherly love and family grief…

Jack Bru has died. In preparation for the funeral, his three sons Billy, Harry and Sean are brought together and forced to address their difficulties in showing emotion and empathy, bringing truths to light from the bottom of the bottle. The relationship of three men more adept at acting with their fists than anything else must ultimately be saved by those who know them even better than they know themselves.

DNA - We Know What You're Thinking: Live UK Tour

Beyond Presents by arrangement with Industry Live Agency
Tuesday 5th March,Doors 7:30pm


Following their astounding appearances on the eleventh series of Britain’s Got Talent in 2017, mind reading duo DNA are taking their brand new show called We Know What You’re Thinking out on a UK tour from 6th February – 29th March 2019.

Andrew and Darren, best known as mind reading double act DNA, took the nation by storm when they appeared on Britain’s Got Talent in 2017 with their incredible telepathic ability known as "The Gift". Wowing the judges, live audience and viewers at home, the duo went on to reach the live finals of the hit ITV talent show. Their first audition has reached almost 10 million YouTube views alone.
Performed completely live, they can ask volunteers to concentrate on the name of celebrities, telephone numbers, credit card numbers, a word in a book, the name of the street they grew up on, a relative’s name... literally anything. With devastating speed and accuracy, the pair are then able to reveal what that name, number or word is, every time.
