Let Me Stay
Announcement - general: Living with dementia? You’re having a laugh! A tender and unique exploration of the impact of Alzheimer’s on family relations. Let Me Stay is a celebration of life and love as seen through the eyes of Shirley McNamara, Queen of the Mersey. Alzheimer's does not have to be a tragic end, an apologetic withdrawal from life. Think of it as a shedding of all care, with two fingers at the world and a constant sense of glee. It's a lifestyle choice for some... Julie McNamara has recorded her Mother's songs and stories, filmed and photographed her in all her glory, over many years. The result is a compelling piece of theatre, an extraordinary love letter straight from the heart welded with a wicked underlying humour. "Funny, poignant and heartfelt - Let Me Stay is a stunning piece of theatre from a very talented actor and singer", Jane Mote, Programme Director, London Live "This is a journey of connection, forgiveness, comedy and compassion" , Guy Somerset, New Zealand LISTENER Created and Performed by Julie McNamara Directed by Paulette Randall Designed by Libby Watson Light design by Crin Claxton Visuals by Caglar Kimyoncu Access information The show includes Audio Description and British Sign Language.

New Production: Eros and Psyche - An Evening of Operatic Love Stories
Announcement - general: For two nights only (November 18th and 20th at 19:30) we will be exploring some of the greatest love stories classical literature and the opera repertoire has to offer. The evening will be kicked off with a collection of some of opera's greatest classic love songs. This will then be followed by a sparkling new composition,Eros & Psyche. Eros and Psyche is a brand new opera fresh from the Grimeborn Festival, composed by Kirsten Morrison with libretto by Buffy Sharpe and directed by Iris Theatre's Artistic Director Daniel Winder. Based on the old Greek characters of Eros (Cupid) and Psyche (his wife) this work is set in the 1950's long after the original myth finishes... This new piece explores the timeless theme of love; from early infatuation, to the thrill of forbidden love, to the humdrum abiding love that grows between two people who chose to spend a lifetime together. Shown through the feelings and words of Eros and Psyche as they sing to themselves, argue with each other and yearn for a modern woman who narrates the piece.

The Travelling Storybox Presents Little Golden-Hood
Audition: The Travelling Storybox Presents Little Golden-Hood Friday 11th October 2013 Cafe Cairo, London, SW9 9PE "You know the tale of poor Little Red Riding-Hood, that the Wolf deceived and devoured, with her cake, her little butter can, and her Grandmother, well, the true story happened quite differently..." The very first outing of The Travelling Storybox will retell to you a version of the fairy tale we all know so intimately.

The highlight of the night takes place at a specific point within the event where you, along with a group of fellow travellers, will be led inside the story by the Narrator for a dark and thorny telling of the tale. Throughout the evening you can expect dazzling walkabout performances that whisk you away into the depths of fantasy; you are invited to make full use of the bar and explore the tunnels of rooms leading into a beautiful outside entertainment area. The event takes place on the 11th October at Cafe Cairo.

CAST 2013: Measure for Measure
Announcement - general: ‘Some rise by sin, and some by virtue fall…’ The law no longer has any hold over the citizens of Vienna. The sex trade has taken over the shadier pockets of society.

Cambridge University’s finest dramatic talent brings you CAST’s mesmerising Measure for Measure, before going on tour of the USA. Intoxicating, hilarious and tragic by turn, this vigorous and passionate production will hurl you head first into modern day Vienna. Look forward to a whirlwind of political corruption, sex and scandal, justice and mercy... Ely Cathedral, Ely, 2 September, 7:30pm ADC Theatre, 4 September, 7:45pm

Call Me Dusty
Announcement - general: Without doubt the finest white soul singer of her era, Dusty Springfield is for millions the definitive pop diva. And 2013 is the 50th anniversary of the start of her extraordinary solo career. Her lifestyle is the stuff of legend – and great drama. With her relentless quest for perfection and refusal to compromise, Dusty Springfield led a tormented life. Her stage persona – extravagant black mascara and backcombed hair – was at odds with the quiet, shy convent girl Mary O'Brien and her sexuality. The result was a downward spiral of drugs, alcohol abuse and self-harm– but, despite all that, she produced tremendous music, which still ranks as some of the finest of its kind. 'Call Me Dusty' celebrates the music, while exploring the dichotomy of the private person and her alter ego. Call Me Dusty opens at the Playhouse, Weston-super-Mare on September 4.

The Comedy of Errors - OUDS Tour 2013

With its thumping clubs and cruise ships, class conflict ensues as the twins bluster through the city, leaving mayhem in their wake. Meanwhile their father has until sunset to cobble together a ransom if he wants to avoid execution.

This vibrant new production reveals the adultery and betrayal that lurk beneath the surface of Shakespeare's best-loved comedy. Brought to you by the Oxford University Dramatic Society and Thelma Holt.
