Frustrated by the monotony of suburban life and her father's strict rules, Ann Veronica Stanley is determined to win her independence, and follow her dream of becoming a scientist. The only problem? It's 1909, and she's a woman - in a patriarchal society still in the grip of stuffy Victorian morals. Risking everything to fulfil her ambition, Ann Veronica flees to London, and joins a dizzying world of freedom and ideas, of dapper socialites, eminent biologists and the courageous women of the suffrage movement. But can she live independently in a society that won't even grant her the right to vote? Does freedom always come at a cost?
At the Platt country manor, whilst womanising landowner Teddy Platt eagerly awaits the arrival of an old friend in the house, in the garden, preparations for the annual village fete are well underway. Amidst the manicured setting, gossip, affairs and petty feuds run rife and with a host of colourful characters and troubled couples mingling throughout the day, tensions run higher still into the night.
In the unique setting of The Watermill, Alan Ayckbourn's pair of linked comedies will be performed simultaneously by the same cast between the theatre and a marquee in its beautiful gardens. With hilarious consequences, one character's entrance to House is another's exit from Garden in this fast-paced duo of plays! This will be the first time that Ayckbourn's play has been performed both inside and out, promising to be a very special production that will be epic and intimate in equal measure.
A Discworld play full of mystery, magic, music and mayhem. Opera was never such fun. Nanny, Granny Weatherwax and Agnes set out to solve the mystery of the (potentially) murderous phantom in the Ankh-Morpork Opera House.
Linda is a self-confessed 'collector'. She has all the necessities: broken umbrellas to match any outfit, unopened Amazon parcels delivered in 2012, shoes that don't fit but were a bargain at 75 percent off and trainers because, one day, she will definitely take up running. To add to her collection there is Toby, an affectionately named rat who has taken up residence in her home. With the arrival of Jonathan, a man who can't sleep if the sponge is in the wrong place by the kitchen sink, comes a more life-changing situation than Linda could ever have imagined. The journey that follows is one of love, loss and an infatuation with Stevie Wonder memorabilia.
The Federation of Rural Primary Schools in West Berkshire will again collaborate with The Watermill in this remarkable project. Over a hundred children from six local village primary schools will perform in a new play specially written for them.
The story of frustrated young (illegally young in modern terms) love and death and the vendetta between two families in a tight-knit Italian community. One of Shakespeare's most popular and enduring dramas it has also been re-done as film, ballet, musical (most notably "West Side Story") and ice spectacular!
Or What You Will. Shakespeare comedy of mistaken identity, practical jokes and unrequited love. Rescued from a shipwreck the twins Viola and Sebastian arrive independently in Illyria, both thinking the other is drowned. Viola disguises herself as a boy and finds employment with the Duke who is in love with Olivia. Malvolio is the subject of a cruel joke played on him by Sir Toby Belch (yellow stockings cross-gartered) leading him to believe that Olivia loves him. But Olivia has fallen in love with the disguised Viola, while she is in love with the Duke (following it so far?!).
