There are 74 onstage deaths in the works of William Shakespeare - 75 if you count the black ill-favoured fly killed in Titus Andronicus. They range from the Roman suicides in Julius Caesar to the death fall of Prince Arthur in King John; from the carnage at the end of Hamlet to snakes in a basket in Antony & Cleopatra; from Pyramus and Thisbe to young Macduff. There are countless stabbings, plenty of severed heads, some poisonings, two mobbings and a smothering. Enorbarbus just sits in a ditch and dies from grief. And then there's the pie that Titus serves the Queen of the Goths. Spymonkey will perform them all - sometimes lingeringly, sometimes messily, sometimes movingly, sometimes musically, always hysterically. The four ?seriously, outrageously, cleverly funny clowns' (Time Magazine) will scale the peaks of sublime poetry, and plumb the depths of darkest depravity. It may even be the death of them.
The true story of how Mrs Thatcher, once the most powerful woman in the western world, was brought down by her one time friend and political soul mate. It is 1989 and a seemingly invincible Prime Minister has sacked Geoffrey Howe, her Foreign Secretary. She apparently had nothing to fear from him: his speaking skills had, famously, been compared to those of a dead sheep. But inspired by his wife Elspeth - whose relationship with Thatcher was notoriously frosty - Howe overcame his limitations to destroy Mrs Thatcher with one of the great political speeches.
Educating Rita is the unforgettable story of the relationship between a feisty Liverpudlian hairdresser and a jaded university professor. Rita has a passion for literature and is intent upon self-improvement. Frank's disillusionment with live has driven him to the bottle. As Rita grapples with the trials of education, Frank learns to believe in himself again. Originally commissioned by the RSC, the show won the 1980 Society of West End Theatres award for Best Comedy and Best Play. Since this time, Educating Rita has never been out of production somewhere in the world. The film version which starred Julie Walters and Michael Caine was Oscar-nominated and won three BAFTA awards.
In 1997, a British film about six out of work Sheffield steelworkers who had nothing to lose, took the world by storm. And now they're back, live on stage, only this time, for them, it really has to be...THE FULL MONTY. Rediscover the six men, their wives and their children and what they had to do to keep it all together.
This dark adult comedy follows actress June Buckridge as she discovers that Sister George, the much-loved character she plays in the popular radio soap opera Applehurst, is about to be killed off. Already volatile and difficult to work with, June’s behaviour becomes increasingly paranoid to the consternation of her live-in companion, Childie, and her employer, Mrs Croft. First seen in London’s West End in 1965 and later filmed under the same title, The Killing of Sister George still packs a powerful satiric punch.
Played by a cast of just five - with a fair amount of doubling - this absurd take on the traditional tale includes mesmeric love scenes featuring a stupendous collection of devastatingly handsome men, questions the impotence of women in a Victorian patriarchal society, and you'll even marvel at how many parts a Spanish man with limited English can play with only one moustache.
