From 7 to 16 August, aKen Whitmore adaptation of The Turn of the Screw by Henry James directed by Clare Goddard darkens the mood, but it is then enlivened by a pair of classic farces – Robin Hawdon’s Birthday Suite (directed by Simon Thompson) and Marc Camoletti’s Ding Dong (directed by Peter Craze). The first runs between 18 and 28 August while the second closes the season from 30 August to 8 September.
Theatre director Debbie Thompson sees the opening productions in particular as a contribution to the Cultural Olympiad and a nod to London 2012.”It’s a challenge”, she agrees, “but all these plays should offer something for everyone”.
