Perhaps you've seen them floating over a Russian village? Or perhaps you've seen her toppling forward, arms full of wild flowers, as he arches above her head and steals a kiss? Meet Marc and Bella Chagall! The Flying Lovers of Vitebsk! Partners in life and on canvas, Marc and Bella are immortalised as the picture of romance. But whilst on canvas they flew, in life they walked through some of the most devastating times in history. Daniel Jamieson's The Flying Lovers of Vitebsk traces this young couple as they navigate the Pogroms, the Russian Revolution, and each other. Emma Rice's final production as Kneehigh's Artistic Director is drawn in a theatrical language as fluid as Chagall's paintings, and woven throughout with music and dance inspired by the Russian Jewish tradition. Perhaps you've glimpsed her rising like a kite, anchored to the earth only by his triumphant hand? They are holding on to hope, to history and to each other.
'I've got a story for you. Involves blue films, a killing, bent cops, drugs and a friend of a couple of people you've been trying to wrap the fish and chips in for a long time now. The man who was killed was called Carter.' Jack Carter has been away, away in the big bad city down south. He's made himself a name as a man not to be crossed. He's found himself a place in world of violence, betrayal and terrible retribution. All that is coming to an end though, it's time to fight or fly, and Jack is flying off to a new life far-far away before his bosses figure out he's been a very naughty boy. Before he goes though, there's a loose end that needs tidying up. Jack's brother Frank is dead and the story of how it happened doesn't add up. So now Jack has to avenge a brother he was never going to speak to again in a Newcastle he was never going back to. The problem is, when you gaze into the past, the past gazes right back into you.
Told against the backdrop and music of the 60s, this dark and stylish new production tells the story of anti-hero Jack Carter's pursuit of revenge in and around an economically depressed Newcastle, rife with unemployment, misogyny, crime and scarcely repressed violence. This new adaptation of Ted Lewis's revenge thriller novel is adapted by Northumberland based writer Torben Betts. Lewis' noir classic was elevated to iconic status by Mike Hodge's 1971 film starring Michael Caine in the lead role.
Flash. click. Buzz. Did you get the picture? ''Sket, skank, slapper, you deserve everything coming to you'' What would you do if a naked photograph of you went viral and you couldn't stop it, rumours went wild and everyone formed an opinion? In Girls Like That, Scarlett becomes the centre of attention but for all the wrong reasons and she chooses to stay silent.
When Inspector Goole calls unexpectedly on the prosperous Birling family investigating the suicide of a poor young local woman his startling revelations shatter the very foundation of their lives. As the Inspector asks insinuating questions it becomes clear that they all bear guilt for the destruction of the woman they have variously exploited for cheap labour, cheap sex and worse - And then the plot thickens. Written at the end of the second World War and set before the first, An Inspector Calls is a brilliantly compelling and haunting thriller.
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.
On a midsummer's night Hermia and her lover Lysander flee from Athens and Demetrius - the man Hermia's father favours as a son-in-law. Demetrius follows, pursued by Helena who loves him in spite of being spurned in favour of Hermia. On the same night Bottom and his friends leave Athens to find somewhere quiet to rehearse their play which is to be performed at the wedding feast of Duke Theseus. Drawn into the woods they enter a world of magic, mystery and wonder.
It's after midnight and Garry, Frederick, Belinda and Brooke, hapless actors rehearsing the trouser-dropping farce, Nothing On, are confused. Should Dotty be holding the newspaper or the sardines? Should there even be sardines? What's gone wrong with all the door handles? And where the hell is Selsdon Mowbray? A month later the troupe hits Goole, and tempers are fraying, hearts are breaking and the riotous fun on-stage is paralleled only by volcanic excitements off-stage. But will the crises turn the comedy into a catastrophe? Can the show go on? Everything desperate director Lloyd Dallas does to make things better, just makes things a little worse.
Hope, humanity, forgiveness, suspicion, leadership, betrayal, war and revenge. Odysseus is fighting for his right to belong in his own country. He is being held in an illegal immigrant detention centre, side by side with the Trojan settlers he helped to defeat. In a bid to gain entry in to his own country, Odysseus retells stories of his 10 year journey home: the characters, the encounters, and, ultimately, his enlightenment as he begins to comprehend the horrors he inflicted on the people of Troy. This modern adaptation takes an ancient story and places it right at the centre of today's humanitarian crisis, where people are fleeing from war torn countries to protect their lives and the lives of their families, only to be turned away. It is the perfect adaptation for our times.
Walter Lee Younger has a dream - a dream that will get him and his family out of their tiny apartment in Southside Chicago. Money is coming, and with it will come freedom, dignity and ease. As the dream collapses a new man is born. And a new dream...Originally produced in 1959, A Raisin in the Sun was the first successful Broadway play by a Black writer. Hansberry was the youngest person and the first African-American to win the New York Drama Critics Circle Award for Best Play. When she was eight years old, a brick was thrown through the window of Lorraine Hansberry's home with such force that it embedded itself in a wall. The Hansberrys, a successful African-American family, had moved into an all-white area. This event and the legal fight that followed inspired her lifelong struggle for racial equality - and her most well known, groundbreaking and influential work A Raisin In the Sun.
Classic costume drama (Gothic thrills) from the 1930's. A young bride feels the presence of her husband's former wife in the haunting home of Manderlay. Slowly she pieces together the tragic history of the dead Rebecca and confronts the housekeeper Mrs Danvers.
Meetings bloody meetings! Committee meetings become symbolic battlefields for conflicting views and this one, to organise a pageant of local history, is no different. The event itself turns into a violent confrontation between the two extremes with cataclysmic results.
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?!).
Originally commissioned by the RSC, Filter's Twelfth Night is a fresh take on Shakespeare, featuring live music to create a truly accessible approach to the Bard for both newbie and veteran theatregoers.
There is definitely trouble brewing at Bournemouth's Hotel Magnificent. Those nice respectable ladies in the ballroom are really witches holding their Annual General Meeting and plotting to turn all the children in Britain into mice! Can our plucky boy hero foil their dreadful plan?
