‘What can you say about a twenty-five year old girl who died? That she was beautiful and brilliant. That she loved Mozart and Bach. The Beatles. And me.’ Inspired by Erich Segal’s best-selling iconic novel, this is a brand new musical version of Love Story, also one of the most romantic films of all time. Oliver Barrett IV went to Harvard and Jenny Cavilleri to Radcliffe. He was rich, she was poor. He was sporty, she played music. But they fell in love. This is their story. Their romance is as poignant as it is enriching, as sweet as it is intense. Love Story will win your heart. And it might just break it.
The Scottish Play - theatrical types consider saying its name to be unlucky! Thrust into power by his overwhelming desires and an over ambitious wife, Macbeth finds his only security is to murder and murder again. From "When shall we three meet again" to "is this a dagger I see before me" this is a powerful Shakespearean drama.
In an uncertain, dystopian future where brutality, extortion and physical might regularly triumph over reason, compassion and any sense of justice, the Warlords, Thanes and self-appointed Kings of long fallen nations battle for control. Alliances are hard-won; forged with distrust and more likely to break than bend. One of the few territories to find stability and something like civil law and order is the district which has come to be known as Scotland. When whispers that Duncan, the Thane-appointed King of Scotland, plans to announce his eldest son, Malcolm, as his heir apparent - in direct opposition to council law and tradition - the worst civil war in centuries threatens to engulf all of Scotland and beyond as the Thane of Cawdor joins forces with a fearsome group of mercenaries called the Norsemen. Fortunately for Duncan, the rebels are swiftly put down; due largely to the tactical efforts of brothers-in-arms Macbeth and Banquo. But, when night falls and all is not quite as it seems, something ancient and evil threatens the souls of mankind once more. As King Duncan travels towards Macbeth's ancestral home, Sil? Macbeth becomes increasingly agitated (and not solely due to the letter she has received from her husband regarding a strange encounter on the road). She and Duncan have an uncomfortable and secret personal history that she will not allow to be relived or revisited. Devoted to her husband and burdened with past knowledge and grief, she prepares to welcome the King of Scotland into her home... for the last time.
With a string of Top 50 hits to his name (including Dolphins Make Me Cry and Please Sir) he has been in demand on both sides of the Atlantic for more than two decades, touring with the likes of Art Garfunkel and Jools Holland and winning fans everywhere with his uncanny fusion of material. Few singer-songwriters have the hammer blow ?once seen, never forgotten' effect of this colossally talented and charismatic Welshman - one of acoustic music's brightest stars.
Bringing R&B kickin' and screamin' into the 21st Century.
Written in 1943. Set in America's deep West just after the turn of the century, the high-spirited rivalry between the local farmers and cowboys provides the colourful background against which Curly, a handsome cowboy, and Laurey, a winsome farm girl, play out their enduring love story. Songs include; "Oh What a Beautiful Morning", "Surrey With the Fringe on the Top" and "People Will Say We're in Love". Based on Lynn Rigg's book 'Green Grow The Lilacs'.
A 21st century 'remixed' version. Inspired by Puccini's La Boheme Larson's original musical updated the plot to early 1990's New York where a community of East End squatters battled to fulfil their aspirations against the reality of rent demands and AIDS. Baker's version has been pruned down to a running time of just over two hours, with some Americanisms excised and references to HIV therapies updated.
Award-winning comedian and failed Buddhist monk Sam Brady explores his struggle to become a "good person" and asks why KINDNESS is so undervalued. Heart-warming, thought-provoking, soul-searching comedy.
A warm-hearted comedy set in a beauty parlour in the American deep South. The action is set in Truvy's beauty salon in Chinquapin, Louisiana, where all the ladies who are "anybody" come to have their hair done. Helped by her eager new assistant, Annelle (who is not sure whether or not she is still married), the outspoken, wise-cracking Truvy dispenses shampoos and free advice to the town's rich curmudgeon, Ouiser, ("I'm not crazy, I've just been in a bad mood for 40 years"); an eccentric millionaire, Miss Clairee, who has a raging sweet tooth; and the local social leader, M'Lynn, whose daughter, Shelby (the prettiest girl in town), is about to marry a "good ole boy." Robert Harling's play began as a short story about the death of his diabetic sister following childbirth, before it evolved into a play. Harling was a model and an actor at the time. The off-Broadway WPA Theatre first produced the work, before, following revisions by Harling, it moved to Broadway, opening June 19, 1987, at the Lucille Lortel Theatre, and running for 1,126 performances. Steel Magnolias made its way to the big screen in 1989, featuring Sally Field, Dolly Parton, Shirley MacLaine, Daryl Hannah, Olympia Dukakis, and Julia Roberts. The film version expanded the story to include the men who are only alluded to in the stage version. The close-knit circle of women at Truvy's Beauty Salon, the unofficial hub of Chinquapin, have lots of time to gossip. Their husbands - absent, depressed or dead - have made sure of that. Consequently, visitors to the salon get more than a wash and a cut. Alternately hilarious and touching, the play focuses on the camaraderie of these six Southern women who talk, gab, gossip, chitchat, needle and harangue each other through the best of times - and cry, caress, comfort and repair one another through the worst. They are soul mates in a rarefied way that assumes a cult of femininity - sisters come hell and high water. The women at Truvy's beauty parlour are the steel magnolias of the title: Southern belles, flowery on the outside, but strong enough inside to survive any challenge, many of which are presented throughout the course of the narrative.
A series of monologues, funny and poignant, normally from two to four of these would be performed at a time. A Cream Cracker Under The Settee tells of an old woman who has a fall, but her pride doesn't allow her to accept help. Bed Among the Lentils tells of a woman with a drink problem, married to a vicar who exploits her recovery actually caused by an affair with an Indian shopkeeper. A Lady of Letters is the story of a woman obsessed with writing letters of complaint and reporting her neighbours who eventually finds comfort in prison. Soldiering On is the tale of a well-to-do woman who finds one day that she's a widow and her husband has left her ill equipped to handle her own affairs - and her son loses her money in bad investments.
Faced with a family gathering, world-weary Stephen does his best to be difficult. When his daughter and her boring husband, their precocious child and - worse still - their dog come to stay, it's enough to make him reach for the whisky and the sarcasm. In his first stage play, which originally starred Richard Wilson, Michael Palin takes an hilariously comic look at family values.
