F**k Freud by Lucio Veronesi

Reviewed by: Elaine Chapman @elainec46302904

Review date: 9th Dec 2019

The semi-autobiographical storyline in F**k Freud by Lucio Veronesi watches twenty-something Leone a struggling Italian actor trying to make sense of the world around him while he is attempting to find his identity in a foreign country. Breaking up with girlfriend Sarah ( Siobhan Gallagher) just adds further pain to his situation.

His patience is tested by the customers and his co-worker (Jason Imlach) at the cinema where he works. The job is boring and unfulfilling but Leone needs to support himself between acting jobs and auditions. His sarcastic remarks and lack of tolerance is often lost on both of these parties. Which leads to some very funny one-liner scenes.

The selection of roles played by the incredibly versatile actor Robbie Fletcher-Hill keeps the storyline flowing throughout the performance and the energy in which he puts into these roles is extremely impressive as he switches between the different characters.

The interchanging stage is a really intriguing design made up of plain white pizza box walls representing Leone’s bedroom. The fluidity in which the cast make the stage changes from Leone’s bedroom to the foyer of the cinema and other scenes is incredibly impressive.

When Leone poses the question “Is there anything I want to live for” he isn’t looking for a way out or for any sympathy he is genuinely attempting to make sense of his existence and purpose in this confusing world.

F**k Freud is the debut play for both writer Lucio Veronesi and director Griffin Mosson showing that these two certainly have a flair for what formulates a good theatre production.

Four Stars

Gosforth's Fete by Alan Ayckbourn

Gosforth's Fete by Alan Ayckbourn

Contact: via our website or social media


A read through and informal auditions for "Gosforth's Fete" will take place on Monday 16th December at 8pm

Forming part of Alan Ayckbourn's "Confusions", this hilarious play can be performed without the other four in the series. It is set at a village fete, and things aren't running quite as smoothly as they should. A temperamental PA system, an incontinent tea urn, and a thunder storm give the five characters much more than they bargained for when agreeing to run the fete.
The cast and rough playing ages:
Milly - 20s -30s
Stewart - 30s/40s (younger than Gosforth - he is Milly's fiance)
Gosforth - 30s/40s +
Vicar - 40s/50s +
Mrs Pearce - 40s +

The Road to Cromer Pier

The Road to Cromer Pier is my second novel, which is achieving good sales and rates 4.6 on Amazon.

It is about the lives and loves of the cast and crew of the end of the pier show there.

I have written a play version, which is a light comedy with a heart warming story, and an initial scripted reading was well received.

I'm looking for a group to take it to the next stage of development, and am prepared to offer that group a share of on-going royalties. The script has nine roles, but can double down to seven.

The link to the novel is here:
www.amazon.co.uk

If anyone is interested then I'm happy to share the script, which is stage ready.

The Thrill of Love - Rescheduled

In a slight case of deja vu (though not quite as deep as 1998, 2007 or 2012 this time) BCP are sad to announce the cancellation of their forthcoming production of Amanda Whittington’s The Thrill of Love due to flooding last week at The Mill Arts Centre in Banbury.

Following a meeting of BCP’s equivalent of the COBRA committee this weekend, the decision has been taken to reschedule the production to 25-28 November 2020.

If you have already booked a ticket (thank you!) The Mill will be in contact with you directly. If you are a BCP Gold Card Holder, you will still be able to use your vouchers for any of the forthcoming shows in our Season. If you have specifically purchased a BCP Gold Card for this production, you will be able to carry it forward to the rescheduled production in 2020. For any further queries, please email contactus@banburycrossplayers.org.uk.

Our regular Tuesday evening meetings will recommence at The Mill from 26th November.

Our thanks go to all who have come forward with offers of help during this week and to The Mill staff for their on-going clean-up work.

As a footnote, we are still on the lookout for a place to store two large items of scenery for the show so please get in touch if you think you may be able to assist.

We look forward to seeing you in February for Jessica Swale’s Nell Gwynn.

Visit BCP's website for more details of this and other productions this season.

CHAIRMAN

Tired of not being able to cast plays?
HELP HAS FINALLY ARRIVED!
Playstage Senior plays have plenty of lead roles for actors aged 40 – 70+

Playstage Senior was formed in the UK in 2008 by playwright Lynn Brittney and friends and now our plays have been performed by English-speaking drama groups all over the world.

Unlike other companies that offer play scripts, Playstage Senior is committed to offering new plays that contain good parts for older actors, because we understand the needs of most amateur dramatic groups! The plays contain some younger parts but the majority of the roles are for actors aged forty and beyond (sometimes way beyond) – and not a Zimmer frame in sight!

We have comedies, dramas, murder mysteries, period costume plays – all in one act and full length formats – and we are adding new plays to our catalogue all the time.

And not only that but we have some of the cheapest licence fees in the business. Performing one of our plays is not going to break the bank, no matter how small your venue.
