CORONAVIRUS: currently, all theatres and related venues are closed. Shows are either being cancelled, postponed or rescheduled and we are trying to keep up with all the changes. There are currently few changes after May 2020 and many shows that were due for April have been pushed back towards the end of Autumn. Pantomimes are looking like a safe bet at the moment ;-)

Spring and The Last Dance archiveDouble Bill. The Girl in Susan Hill's Spring contemplates the life behind her, and the life that lies ahead. She is walking the precarious bridge from early adulthood into the period where convention dictates a settling down, a pairing off, the sacrifice of youth to the need for the world to be peopled. But although the sea air on a clifftop in spring gives the feeling of a hopeful season to come, she is far from care-free. The man she loves is a creature of brutal shift-work and habit. Her Irish home-life offers scant inspiration. Is this all she has to look forward to? She shares her rolling thoughts as the swell rolls into the bay. Listening without comment, and perhaps without judgement, is an Older Woman. And it is into older age that Mitch Hooper's The Last Dance takes us. A married couple look out to sea and contemplate the reluctant departure of one partner before the other. The audience witnesses a conversation that may be one of the last. "Marriage is an ordeal" said mythologist Joseph Campbell, "in which two people go through everything together." Complete honesty between lovers is a high ideal. But what if, in sharing the truth of one's deep hidden self, more damage is done than good?
