Latest Review

COCKFOSTERS by Tom Woffenden and Hamish Clayton

Reviewed by: Elaine Chapman @ElaineC_reviews

Review date: 23rd Sep 2023

Strangers Tori (Olivia Gosling) and James (Jack Gray) break the unspoken code for travelling on the London Underground and spark up a proper conversation. COCKFOSTERS combines comedy and a few surreal conversations along their Tube journey.

The stage is set out in the style of one-half of a tube carriage complete with the Piccadilly Line route map above the seats. Watch out for the loud announcements. The only difference is that the ones in the play are clear and audible.

Characters come and go along the route from noisy Arsenal football supporters, loud American tourists, and a surprise visit by the Grim Reaper. Just as any tube traveller would encounter except the final one.

Additional passengers who are not included during scenes can be recognised as they are all reading the same book “The Spare”! Which adds a touch of visual comedy to the production.

The humour changes throughout the hour-long performance as the relationship between Tori and James develops as they travel homeward bound to Cockfosters with additional passengers joining in their conversations.

Tom Woffenden and Hamish Clayton clearly understand their subject and how fast the dynamics change on a Tube journey. For anyone who travels on it will recognise at least one or two of the featured character types who appear along the way.

IT'S A WONDERFUL LIFE: A LIVE RADIO PLAY

Author: Joe Landry

IT'S A WONDERFUL LIFE: A LIVE RADIO PLAY

Venue: Theater an der Marschnerstraße, Marschnerstraße 46, 22081 Hamburg

Box Office: www.hamburgplayers.de/tickets

1 to 4 and 8 to 11 November 2023 7:30pm

IT’S A WONDERFUL LIFE IS BASED ON THE STORY THE GREATEST GIFT BY PHILIP VAN DOREN STERN
DIRECTED BY JESSICA ALBISTON AND JOCASTA GODLIEB
The iconic Hollywood movie It’s A Wonderful Life is an absolute must-see during the holiday season. No wonder, the American retelling of A Christmas Carol is as heart-warming as it is life-affirming.
In his stage version of It’s A Wonderful Life, Joe Landry sets the story as a 1940’s radio broadcast coming to you live from New York City, where an ensemble of actors, singers and audio artists brings to life the idyllic town of Bedford Falls.
Idealistic George Bailey is a dreamer, a husband and father to four, and perhaps even the heart of the community. Which is why when, one stormy December night, he finds his family business unexpectedly confronted with possible bankruptcy, he desperately wishes he had never been born. Lucky for him and the rest of Bedford Falls, his guardian angel Clarence is determined to change George’s mind – and finally earn his wings.

Hi all.
We are a new online publishing, sales and performance licencing website; up and running and ready for your next stage production. Choose from our many titles - Our plays and musicals are EXCLUSIVE to the Stage-Write Plays website and we are adding plays every week; building our "Go-To" library to give you a great choice for your next school play, the next interactive play for your theatre restaurant, the next witty comedy for your amateur theatre group. Whatever your needs are, we are here to help.
If you have any queries, our live chat feature is only a click away from connecting you to a real live person - who can help. If you just need "pointing in the right direction" and you can tell me what you are looking for - I am only too happy to recommend a small selection of plays for you to appraise. After all. I have edited each and every one of them :)
We are a one-stop shop! From browsing our plays, sampling a play, choosing a play, purchasing a play, licencing a play, right through to our after-sales service. It's all at your fingertips.
All our plays come with standard performance packages. These packages provide the minimum materials you will require to perform your play in public. We can also offer any optional extras that are available for your chosen play! If there is something in the standard package you do not require - I am happy to remove it from the package AND the pricing for you. Every play has free sample scripts and musicals also have free sample songs. You can also purchase just the script - all our scripts are between $20 - $40.
We would love to show you our new space. So please, head on over and take a look.
Cheers Donna

I am looking for.my cousin Janice Parfitt. I know she used to be a member of a amateur group and she was a lead in quite a few productions.
If anyone knows her please could you ask her to contact me. I would appreciate it.

Peter's response:

Hi Sheila,

I'm afraid I don't have any knowledge of your cousin.

I will post your query in the #Advice section of www.dramagroups.com asking anyone who is able to help to contact you directly via your email address.

I wish you luck in your search and would be interested to hear if you are successful in tracking your relative down.

Best Wishes,

Peter
