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 ;-)
T01961402679 Weather (Gary Baxter) - IPF Selection Through conversations and recollections, an elderly couple reflect upon mortality and past relationships. When one becomes frustrated with the realities of ageing, a series of flashbacks brings life back into perspective. Weather is a brilliantly thought out play that challenges you to take a journey that will be familiar and strange at the same time. Too Late (Nadia Davis) - A tender and challenging play about a girl discovering she has a cruel illness. It is about the impact on her and her family. Nadia Davis is a gifted young writer and Too Late is her first play and was the winning play in the Brit School s Strawberry Picking Festival. Traces of a Sacrifice The re-telling of the tragedy of Alcestis, set in a concentration camp, in the present time. Thanatos, the camp commander decides on the life and death of his prisoners. Admeto is condemned to death. A tall and handsome man, (do you remember Oskar Schindler?) intercedes with Thanatos to save Admeto s life. He accepts but someone else must die in Admeto s place. Alcestis, his wife, chooses to sacrifice her life for him, but unlike in Euripides play there is no happy ending.
