Love, art tragedy, loyalty, ambition and the passing of eras in our own recent history all intermingle in this masterpiece from the author of The Absence of War, Racing Demon and (with Howard Brenton Pravda). Originally performed by the Royal National Theatre and on Broadway Amy's View follows the relationship between Amy Thomas, the man in her life and her eccentric actress mother, as it develops through a decade and a half of social change and growing maturity - from the passionate idealism of the 70s, through the self-promoting cynicism of the 80s and 90s when, at last, it might just be possible to find redemption of a sort through acceptance of 'Amy's view'.
Salem, Massachusetts 1692. When the stories of three local girls are taken as gospel, a small village populated by Puritans and petty local rivalries, is thrown into panic by talk of witchcraft. The community begins to purge itself, and as accusations fly suspicion alone is accepted as evidence. Written during the vigorous and unscrupulous investigations of Senator J R McCarthy in 1950's America. The Crucible is a timeless portrayal of communal hysteria and the evil of mindless persecution.
What happens when two sets of parents meet up to deal with the unruly behaviour of their children? A calm and rational debate between grown-ups about the need to teach kids how to behave properly? Or a hysterical night of name-calling, tantrums and tears before bedtime? Boys will be boys, but the adults are usually worse - much worse.
Three couples, who married in the same chapel and on the same day, are blissfully celebrating their Silver Wedding Anniversary when a series of revelations and events turn the men folk into jibbering wrecks. They get more than they bargained for when the worms turn! A young Chapel organist, a nosy meddlesome servant, a mad vicar, a reporter, a drunken photographer and a mysterious woman turn what should have been an idyllic day into an hilarious comedy of misunderstandings and mayhem.
