The Divide is a four-part satire of the sexes, written for more than thirty voices. An exclusive semi-staged reading in September will support the commissioning and production of new work at the theatre. It features the cast of Ayckbourn's Confusions and Hero's Welcome plus special guest appearances. Not so long ago, let it not be forgotten, as decreed by The Preacher, Men and Women lived apart on separate sides of the Divide in segregated isolation. The celebrated novelist Soween Clay-Flin recalls this period in our recent history with dramatised readings based on documents of the period, including her own personal diary as a young girl who lived through it and survived to tell the tale.
The gala reading takes place at the Stephen Joseph Theatre, Scarborough on Sunday 27 September from 3pm to 9.30pm and will include two intervals and a supper break.
You're six years old. Mum's in hospital. Dad says she's 'done something stupid'. She finds it hard to be happy. You start to make a list of everything that's brilliant about the world. Everything that's worth living for. 1. Ice cream, 2. Water fights, 3. Things with stripes, 4. Laughing so hard you shoot milk out your nose, 5. Rollercoasters, 6. Me. A new play about depression and the lengths we will go to for those we love. The show involves members of the audience, making each performance unique.
Seventeen years ago, Murray fled the neighbourhood under somewhat of a cloud and certain local folk have long memories, not least Alice, the mayor, whom he left standing at the alter. Indeed few of his friends, once the welcome flags have stopped waving and the town band has ceased playing, seem particularly happy to see him back. Murray's declared intention of staying put and settling down with his new bride threatens to stir up all sorts of old rivalries and resentments. Suddenly the couple, in search of peace, find themselves once more in the firing line.
