Boring, vanilla, Horlick's swiller William Shight's most interesting trait has always been his snigger inducing name. Up until now that is! Since landing his dream job at one of the country's top advertising agencies, things have taken a nipple twisting turn for the shocking. Christina Black, the company director, has taken a shine to our William and attempts to seduce him with an indecent proposal. Clearly overwhelmed by the attention and having no friends or family to turn to, poor William decides the only thing he can do is seek the advice of the only two men in his life he can trust, the hilariously argumentative Gabriel and Gideon...his sex conscience. Willy tries in vain to resist but in the end relents and signs a 69 page contract, the one Chrisitna intends to use to make a man out of him! The 20 pages of 'don't' and 49 pages of 'do' whatever the hell I want - will lead William on a hilariously painful journey of a lifetime. Guided by his argumentative conscience., can he salvage his integrity and ability to sit down without grimacing? Or will he be completely corrupted by the seductive power of Christina and the sixty nine?? Only William's 'true self' can decide the outcome!
For ages 16+
Based on the 2005 German-Danish black comedy film, Manuel Schobels staging stays close to the plot of the film, focusing on the theme of the Book of Job. The central character, as part of his rehabilitation, chooses the small but significant task of making an apple pie live on stage, amongst dialogue spoken in German, an English chorus and physical theatre movement. A very accessible piece of theatre for non-German speakers.
This event takes place at De Grey Ballroom
The story focuses on an Anglo - Pakistani family in 1970's Salford. It's a time of long hair, glam rock and flares. Chip shop owner, George Khan, wants his children to keep their culture and tradition but his kids want to be part of the modern world. The boys want disco music, the latest fashions and girls; Sajit wants to live in his parka and Meena doesn't want to wear saris. Their Dad is insisting on arranged marriages, dutiful children and respect, while their English Mum wants to give the kids space and to keep the peace - which is where the trouble starts. East is East is the hilarious result of two cultures colliding. This touching comedy was a hugely successful stage play and later made into the enormous international smash hit film. Winner of 1997 Writers' Guild Best West End Play award.
