XARA VAUGHAN

This lady is a true talent. Coquettish and impossibly chic, she's new to the cabaret scene but you'd never guess'.. threeweeks.co.uk on Edinburgh Festival debut.

Xara Vaughan a true chanteuse born out of talent and circumstance. She escaped from school to become a Stringfellow's Angel. She lived as a Buddhist nun then escaped from a nunnery high in the Himalayas to join a punk band. Ms Vaughan is that rare thing, now making her name in cabaret.

Xara is the genuine article - a cabaret star! A unique chanteuse combining glamour and attitude, Xara gives a contemporary twist to classic songbook.

***** 'New to the cabaret circuit, this is Xara Vaughan's debut at the Edinburgh Fringe and what a cool, classy, highly polished performance this is' EdinburghGuide.com

The first ever revival of

THE NOTORIOUS MRS EBBSMITH

by Arthur Wing Pinero

Directed by Abbey Wright

Set design by Cherry Truluck
Costume design by Victoria Johnstone
Lighting design by Tim Mascall
Sound composed and designed by Simon Slater


"That is what marriage gives - the right to destroy years and years of life."

Venice, Easter 1895.
In the cafes around St Mark's Square, all the gossip among
the English ex-pat community is about two mysterious arrivals in the city. Agnes Ebbsmith is a young widow with a scandalous past. Travelling with her is Lucas Cleeve, an up-and-coming Tory MP who has abandoned his wife in London. Defying convention, Agnes and Lucas are refusing to marry, and living in a 'compact' together. But before long their peace is shattered by the arrival of Lucas's aristocratic family from London.

This is a funny, dramatic, and utterly enthralling play by one of the greatest Victorian dramatists. This is its first ever revival and marks a major theatrical rediscovery.
Arthur Wing Pinero was the foremost playwright of the Victorian theatre.
The Notorious Mrs Ebbsmith was last performed by Mrs Patrick Campbell in the
West End in 1895.

Abbey Wright directs. Abbey was Resident Assistant Director at the Donmar Warehouse and Staff Director of Danny Boyle's Frankenstein (NT). Her recent productions include Mrs Lowry and Son and Dublin Carol (Trafalgar Studios), and Sixty-Six Books (Bush Theatre).
Set Designer Cherry Truluck's many designs at Jermyn Street Theatre include The Living Room, All That Fall, directed by Trevor Nunn, and Berkoff: Religion and Anarchy, directed by Steven Berkoff and Max Barton.
The lavish period costume designs are by Victoria Johnstone, whose 1920s designs for Primavera's revival of Saturday Night (Jermyn Street Theatre and West End, 2009) were highly praised.

An outstanding cast includes Rhiannon Sommers as Agnes Ebbsmith. She was last seen at Jermyn Street Theatre in an acclaimed portrayal of Mary Shelley in Bloody Poetry in 2012. Christopher Ravenscroft plays the Duke of St Olpherts. Christopher is well known for The Ruth Rendell Mysteries as well as numerous stage performances, including winning Best Actor last year at the Manchester Theatre Awards. Peter Sandys-Clarke (On Approval) and Robert Benfield (The White Carnation) return to Jermyn Street Theatre. Primavera's past productions at Jermyn Street Theatre include The Living Room, Bloody Poetry, and Anyone Can Whistle and Saturday Night.
Primavera returns in the autumn to present the first revival of Terence Rattigan's first play, First Episode.

**** - WhatsOnStage, Libby Purves (Theatre Cat), Public Reviews, The Upcoming

"Written in 1895 and boasting a fiery female protagonist, The Notorious Mrs Ebbsmith is as radical as any contemporary feminist play." Honour Bayes, The Stage

"This first ever revival, directed by Abbey Wright for the stimulating company Primavera ... makes the piece feel infinitely more pertinent." Sam Marlowe, The Times

**** "the puppet-master Duke of St Olpherts (played with a delicious cool restraint and charm by Christopher Ravenscroft)." Carole Gordon, WhatsOnStage

**** "There's an intelligent lead from Rhiannon Sommers as Agnes: open-faced, striding, and confident that womanish emotions can't weaken her until they suddenly do." Libby Purves, Theatre Cat

ALCHEMY

A Musical written & composed by Clive Nolan
Produced by Clive Nolan
Directed by Ian Baldwin
Sound by Mark Westwood
Lighting by Alec Morris


London 1842

Professor Samuel King embarks on a quest to find the three hidden artefacts left behind by alchemist, Thomas Anzeray. Initially he is aided and later betrayed by Lord Jagman, who believes King to be dead. Jagman pursues the artefacts, with no heed for human life or feeling. He tricks some vital information from a helpless girl, Amelia, imprisoned in Newgate for unpaid debts. She finds herself double-crossed and sentenced for public execution, but as she is taken to the scaffold before the baying crowd, she is saved by a daring escape plan from King and his friends, Eva and William. It is now a race against time as King tries to prevent Jagman from securing the artefacts and performing the long lost "Anzeray Ritual", which would open the doorway between life and death and unleash chaos itself! The safety of the world is at stake...

"Alchemy" is a tale that reaches deep into the mysteries that mankind has striven to solve for centuries: the story of the shadowy world of alchemy ... dark science ... and the supernatural. This is a Victorian 'Steampunk' tale of adventure, passion, betrayal and revenge ... The search for long lost secrets ...the lust for retribution and the quest for the greatest power on earth. It is a race for the ultimate prize ... transforming lead into gold, changing death into life, or perhaps turning hatred into love.

Clive Nolan a musician, composer and producer who has played a prominent role in the recent development of progressive and symphonic rock, known from the internationally acclaimed bands like Pendragon, Arena, Shadowland, Strangers on a Train and many others. His first musical, "She", premiered in Poland in 2007 and was subsequently performed in Bolivia, Holland and the UK.
In 2010 the Bolivian government awarded him with the title of Honorary Visitor to Santa Cruz, Bolivia for his theatre work in the city of Santa Cruz. "Alchemy" with libretto based on Nolan's original story, premiered in the concert version in Poland and was released on CD and DVD in February 2013.
The full theatrical shows of the musical were performed at the Cheltenham Playhouse Theatre in September 2013, where Nolan was awarded with the MLWZ Golden Lexicon Award for Outstanding Achievements in Music for his musical "Alchemy".

"The arrivalof Clive Nolan at the peak of his career." Dmitry M. Epstein, Let it Rock
"The culmination of years of work, and the result is staggering." Kev Rowlan, Prog Archives.
