Politically incorrect songs penned by Tom Lehrer will entertain audiences in Weston.

In the latter part of the 1950s, rock and roll was changing the sound of popular music, and at the same time, satirist Lehrer was creating his own musical 

His sharp wit was unique at the time, with some controversial tunes such as Poisoning Pigeons In The Park and The Masochism Tango.

A love of science inspired him to put the periodic table elements to a Gilbert and Sullivan melody.

Peter Gill will star in Politically Incorrect – The Songs Of Tom Lehrer at The Blakehay Theatre on July 15 at 8pm.

Tickets, priced £12.50-13.50, are available from 01934 645493 or
