A darkly comic look at the EU's founding ideals and what got lost along the way. A first sharing by Nasi Voutsas & Bertrand Lesca, co-produced by FellSwoop Theatre. Inspired by the ongoing crisis in Athens and all over Europe, your hosts for the afternoon - one Greek and one French - summon up the spirits and ideas of their favourite revolutionary leaders. Among a mess of food, wine and traditional tzatziki, two performers and a drummer speak, sing and dance against austerity.
On the South Coast of France, a small group of young men are being coached in French by M Maingot and his daughter, Jacqueline. They do not find French easy, but their progress is further bedevilled by the presence of Diana Lake who has a gift for making men fall in love with her. And they fall like ninepins. Although Diana has a special fondness for one young man, she is eagerly awaiting the arrival of Lord Heybrook but her plans go awry in a way that takes them all by surprise.
Written between 1599 and 1601. The play, set in Denmark, recounts how Prince Hamlet exacts revenge on his uncle Claudius, who has murdered Hamlet's father, the King, and then taken the throne and married Gertrude, Hamlet's mother. The play vividly charts the course of real and feigned madness - from overwhelming grief to seething rage - and explores themes of treachery, revenge, incest, and moral corruption.
A play devised and scripted from research into the hidden history of sex workers on the Western Front in World War One. Untold numbers of women worked as prostitutes during WWI and THE HOUSE BEHIND THE LINES reveals their seldom heard stories.
A middle aged mother relives her youth. Betty is in ready for her son's wedding - so why is she in the attic? Could it be that she doesn't like the bride, is fed up with her husband's meanness or is jealous of her sister's good looks and four husbands? Comedy.
Shaw's dramatisation of a Cockney flower girl's metamorphosis into a lady is not only a delightful fantasy but also has much to say about social class, money, spiritual freedom and womens' independence. Its combination of ideas and social comment, together with its rich comic characterization, make it one of the most enduring and entertaining of English comedies. Henry Higgins, Professor of Linguistics and confirmed bachelor, wagers that within six months he will transform flower seller, Eliza Doolittle, into a lady who can take her place in high society. Shaw's masterpiece is both brilliantly funny and a devastating critique of the English class system. This play formed the basis of "My Fair Lady".
To mark his 75th birthday year, Alan Ayckbourn has created a confectionary assortment, a varied bouquet of five related short plays, each with differing flavours and colours and written to be played in no particular order. Some are connected through shared characters, some through overlapping narrative. Some are sequels to others which turn out to be preludes to others. There are (apparently!) 120 possibilities as to the order in which they can be performed. Depending on the chosen sequence, each evening will develop differently. Which order will you see? Nobody knows for certain, least of all us. It won't be decided till the night!
When tough actor Jack Skipton returns from filming to care for his ageing aunt, he has no idea what he is letting himself in for. But this might be his most taxing role to date, as he begins an incredible odyssey through the N.H.S, from cancelled GP's appointments, wrongly booked scans, frustrated Consultants, and abusive home Carers, who smoke on the door step! Jack's story is hilarious and heartbreaking, as he and his aunt take on the health service in order to get the right diagnosis, and the right care; as he goes from actor to Carer to drugs Consultant, and she refuses to admit that she is even ill! Told in a bold physical theatre style and with breathtaking grit and honesty, Godber's take on our health service is both tender and true, as he investigates what we deserve, and what we receive. Take a deep breath, because This Might Hurt!
