MACBETH

Directed by Brian Theodore Ralph

MACBETH

UK
Suffolk


Venue: The Sir John Mills Theatre, Ipswich

Box Office: 01473 211498 or https://easternangles.co.uk/event/macbeth

March 30 - April 4

Things bad begun make strong themselves by ill?
What changes a man from being his country’s hero to its most loathed and dreaded murderer? Ambition? Sorcery? Fate – or simply innate evil?
One of Shakespeare’s most perfectly crafted plays explores one man’s terrifying descent to tyranny.
The Sir John Mills Theatre brings you close to the man and his mania in a brutal and violent age.
Brian Theodore Ralph directs his first play with Gallery Players. Brian is a hugely experienced theatre actor, director and educator who has spent most of his life working in the theatre and in associated media. He spent many years at The Wolsey theatre as leading actor and director, from its opening in 1979 until the early 90s. He subsequently became Programme leader of Performing Arts and Music at Suffolk New College, where he directed many Shakespeare productions.
Brian has assembled an exciting ensemble of the finest local actors and creatives for the project, including professionally trained Liam Gregory and Jo Lewis as Lord and Lady Macbeth.
‘For many, the name Macbeth is synonymous with evil and tyranny. But what does Lady Macbeth say when she learns from Macbeth that the ‘weird sisters’ have hailed him …‘Macbeth, that shalt be king hereafter.’? She considers his nature to be…… “too full o’ the milk of human kindness….” he is… “not without ambition, but without the illness should attend it”.
So what happens, and why and with what consequences?
I am so excited to be working with this amazing company and to exploring these extraordinary characters and the chain of events that lead to the play’s tragic conclusion’
The production will be performed in the intense cockpit atmosphere of the Sir John Mills Theatre. The atmosphere will be enhanced by Alfie Harries’ music, which he will play live at each performance.

Lady Dorothy, a peeress and ex-model, lives in this mouldy old pile with her companion, Iris, and is mortified by the suggestion that it is opened to the public in order to stave off selling; Dorothy's archdeacon sister, June, is attempting to ...

Spinning the Moon

UK
Dorset


Venue: The Thomas Hardye School, Dorchester

Box Office: www.dorchesterarts.org.uk or 01305 266926

Monday 6th April to Saturday 18th April 2020 for 11 nights with NO performance on Good Friday 10th or Easter Sunday 12th April

Spinning the Moon is a compelling new community play based on documents provided by the DCPA Research Group.
Set in the early 16th century, the play, like Shakespeare’s history plays, has taken a sense of what was happening in Dorset over a fifty-year period and has conflated those happenings to create a work of dramatic fiction.
Central to the action are the Trenchard family, who lived at Wolfeton House on the outskirts of Dorchester. The Trenchards are desperately trying to stop their home, and the people who work their land, from spinning towards economic collapse and ruining the lives of all who depend on the estate for their livelihoods. But the advice they take from a monk leaves their community fractured to the point of violent disintegration.
Characters in the play include: the Trenchard family, farmers, shepherds and their families, the Queen of Spain and her entourage and the cunning women who live in the hills.

22nd – 25th April 2020

It’s 1994 and the residents of SunnySide care home, a quiet residential home for the elderly, are going about their mundane routine, overseen by the anally-retentive manager, Mr Maybrick. Their invisible existence has become an accepted way of life until one day a letter arrives and a dramatic discovery prompts seven World War II veterans to reflect on their lives and their value as human beings.
As the 50th anniversary of D-Day approaches, these unsung heroes decide to journey to the beaches of Normandy one last time. However, disaster strikes in the form of a newly appointed nurse whose strict methods soon make the residents feel like they are prisoners of war. Consequently, they must plan their greatest escape yet… to go behind enemy lines and spring themselves from the home.
There’s the formidable serial knitter Betty, an ex-Ministry Of War secretary; wheelchair-bound Brian, a former spitfire pilot; the flamboyant Ron and the forever-sleeping Sid, two ex-prisoners of the infamous Colditz; the mysterious Bletchley code breaker, Flo; and two heroes of the D-Day landings: wide boy wheeler-dealer Reg, and the secretive and withdrawn, Bill.
Join them on an unforgettable adventure of honour, love, loss, official secrets, balaclavas, biscuits and Ninja Turtles in this poignant, yet funny, play, inspired by the true story of Bernard Jordan.

Showtime! Is the 100th production since the current Dedham Players were formed 50 years ago in 1970. There is evidence of a Dedham drama group entertaining the village in the late 1940s and early 1950s with the Dedham WI drama group keeping this going during the 1960s before becoming The Dedham Players in 1970.
Showtime! Is an evening of fun showcasing the talents of members of the Players, past, present and future through comedy, music, prose and light hearted poetry. What better way to spend an evening than joining us to help celebrate our 50th birthday with the profits of this production going to Colchester Committee of Cancer Research UK.
Colchester Committee CRUK was established in 1962 and has continued to produce amazing contributions to CRUK towards their research into finding ways to beat/cure cancer. To date they have raised over £1.6 million and last year were awarded CRUK’s highest accolade The Flame of Hope.

Wednesday 23rd - Saturday 25th April 2020

Directed by Michael Reffold (Assistant Director for Garden Suburb Theatre’s acclaimed open-air production of Our Country’s Good in July 2019), Look Back in Anger explores the breakdown of a marriage between original “angry young man” Jimmy Porter and his wife Alison, who Jimmy resents for being of a higher social class than him. Their relatively stable life in a small, dingy apartment with Jimmy’s friend Cliff is disrupted by the arrival of Helena, a long-time friend of Alison’s, who seems to have her own agenda and turns their existence on its head.
With a number of intense stand-offs, characters with depth, and a host of psychological avenues to explore, this dark 50s drama is sure to be explosive.
Please note that this play contains adult themes, including domestic abuse, which will be explored in a sensitive manner but may not be suitable for everyone.
Look Back in Anger will be GST’s entry into the Barnet & District Drama Festival Awards (the Barnies) for 2020.

From Panto to Farce!
The Latimer Players production of Robinson Crusoe and the Pirates last November was a huge success, playing to full houses. The new members to the group made a big hit with our audience and we are pleased to say that some of them will be appearing in our spring production.
Our spring production will be ‘Love and Money’ by Raymond Hopkins. We have built up a good rapport with Ray, having performed several of his plays, which our audiences appear to like, and our members enjoy performing.
‘Love and Money’ is a farcical comedy which takes place in the lounge of the Feltons’ house.
Life has been passing fairly smoothly for Derek and Pauline Felton until one evening when they return home to find their home has been burgled. Derek has always had a materialistic outlook on life and decides that their new house insurance policy will yield a lucrative pay out. Pauline becomes increasingly unhappy about her husband’s course of action.
Neighbour, Joyce Clements witnessed the robbery and calls in daily to offer support, advice and unwelcome comments. To add to the mayhem the vicar unexpectedly calls round. The hilarious confusion which follows has a surprising twist at the end which means the Feltons’ lives will never be the same again.

Uncertain Times!
Following Government guidelines it is with regret that the Latimer Players have cancelled their production of ‘Love and Money’ due to be staged on 23rd, 24th and 25th April. Rehearsals were in full swing and the cast were enjoying taking part but we thought, in the interest of our members and audience, cancelling at an early stage was the sensible thing to do. At the moment, this is only a postponement and we hope to bring it back either this November, instead of our annual pantomime, or April 2021. It is too soon for us to have made any decisions, but as soon as we do you will be the first to know. In the meantime from all the Latimer Players, we send our apologies and hope in these unprecedented times you keep safe and healthy, ready for us to entertain you when the situation changes.

Sylvia's Wedding

Author: A Comedy Drama by Jimmie Chinn

Sylvia's Wedding

UK
Surrey


Venue: Adrian Mann Theatre, NESCOT, Reigate Road, Epsom Surrey KT17 3DS

Box Office: Tickets - £11 each can be obtained via company box office (01737 760 163) or company website - www.wpds.co.uk

April 23rd and 24th - 8.00pm
April 25th - 2.30pm

Sylvia's Wedding is yet another clear-sighted and even-handed drama written by the splendid Jimmie Chinn with all his customary wit, humanity and keenness of observation. Gordon proposes to Sylvia, after ten years of courting, and throws his family, and Sylvia's, into turmoil. Joyce and Vic, Sylvia's parents, are hardly the sort of people Gordon's pompous father, Stanley, wants his family connected with, and Vic feels much the same in return. Sylvia's best friend, Yvonne, isn't much help either - as she's all too ready to deflate Sylvia's joy with her cynical, world-weary comments. Against the odds, the two warring families co-operate in the wedding preparations and all looks set for success - but fate intervenes. The spirited comedy of the early scenes gives way to bitter irony....as again family values and relationships are given a stern examination in a stylish Chinn piece.

Worcester Park Dramatic Society (WPDS) was founded in 1927 and has been delighting audiences with a wide variety of awards -winning drama productions ever since. Our next production will be staged:

Venue: The Centre, New Eltham Methodist Church, 435 - 439 Footscray Road, New Eltham SE9 3UL

Box Office: 0208 851 9881 or necpneweltham@yahoo.co.uk

Thursday 23rd - Saturday 25th of April at 7:30pm

Based on Melvyn Bragg's stirring novel of Cumbrian rural and industrial working life, set in the first quarter of the twentieth century, The Hired Man tells the story of the Tallentires during 2 periods of their lives in rural Cumbria. John Tallentire’s attempts to settle down in a new village working as a hired farmhand who enjoys nothing more than a day's hard work on the land, as his wife Emily adapts to her new home, neglect from her industrious husband and the temptations of the farmers son Jackson.
Set against the background of working class ritual-whippet racing, hiring fairs, hunting, drinking bouts, union meetings-the musical brings alive that cavalcade of British history which swept us into a new century and the horror of a war to end all wars, Howard Goodall's superb score is strong in the British choral tradition-a marvellous succession of chorales, operatic duets and vigorous foot-stomping rhythms which will have you singing along long after the show is over.
In 1984, during its West End run, The Hired Man was awarded the Ivor Novello Award for Best Musical, earned four Olivier Award nominations, and was voted Best Musical of the Year by the critics of Time Out, The Guardian, Punch & The Stage.
With as many highs as lows come along and see this story of love, loss and betrayal which will have you gripped from start to finish, so live the life of Riley and join us for a show like no other!

However, the family encounters an unforeseen obstacle when Wednesday decides to introduce her new “normal” boyfriend Lucas to the family. In protest, Uncle Fester enlists the help of the Addams’ ancestors to call an end to the young budding romance.
As the families of Wednesday and Lucas come together for dinner one fateful evening, chaos ensues and the two families find themselves admitting deep secrets and coming together in ways they never would have imagined.

‘CRAZY FOR YOU’ is an award winning Gershwin extravaganza filled with song, dance and hilarious dialogue. It won ‘Best Musical’ at the Tony Awards when it opened on Broadway in 1992 and a year later it won ‘Best New Musical‘ at the Lawrence Olivier Awards.

Set in the 1930s, Bobby Child is a talented song & dance man, longing for a life in the theatre. He’s sent away on business by his domineering mother to the run-down, gold mining town of Deadrock, Nevada to foreclose the Gaiety Theatre. Once there, despite already having a fiancée, he falls in love with the feisty Polly, daughter of the theatre owner. Failing to impress her, he dreams up the idea to put on a magnificent show to raise money for the theatre in order to save it.RThe elaborate plot involves Bobby impersonating Bela Zangler (an established New York producer) & inviting the glamorous dancing follies to support his cast of singing, dancing cowboys. All this goes awry when no-one comes to see the show on opening night. Then Bobby’s fiancée, Irene, turns up followed by the real Zangler. Bobby confesses to Polly who can’t forgive his deceit. The path of true love rarely runs smoothly, but the town is reinvigorated, the theatre is saved, and eventually the two fall in love.
