A LEVEL PLAYING FIELD

by Jonathan Lewis
Directed by Chris Popert

In the music room of a top fee-paying London school, a group of 18-year-olds must
sit out an hour of “isolation” to cover a clash of exams and avoid the risk of cheating.
But their supervising teacher has failed to turn up. In dealing with the dilemmas of the situation, the pupils gradually reveal a darker side to the pressures they are under.

An 11-strong teenage cast portray their own generation in this roller-coaster tale of hope, identity and shattered dreams.

Jonathan Lewis’s play Our Boys opened to universally good reviews in 1991 and had a West End revival in 2012 starring Laurence Fox and Arthur Darvill. His one man show I Found My Horn was critically acclaimed when it opened in 2008. It toured the UK, had a run at the Hampstead Theatre in November 2009, and then came to the Trafalgar Studios in London's West End in 2014.

Educational values are at the top of the political agenda these days, with scarcely a day passing without an outraged editorial in one of the papers. This darkly hilarious comedy blows the debate wide open in the authentic voice of those for whom it matters most – the kids.

Featuring: Joe Layton as Mr Preston, with Jack Bass, Izzy Caley, Eve Delaney, Christian Hines, AJ Lewis, JoJo Macari, India Opzoomer, Elsa Perryman Owens, Finlay Stroud, Joe Taylor, Lydia Williams

CAST:
Emma Barton, Ria Jones, Sarah-Louise Young


Featuring songs from classic musicals including Hello Dolly, Mame, Mack and Mabel and La Cage Aux Folles, Jerry’s Girls brings together an all-female cast to celebrate Jerry’s special gift for writing songs that capture the true spirit of the great American musical, honouring the legacy of the multi Tony Award-winning composer and lyricist of some of the greatest Broadway musicals of all time.
Jerry Herman’s many Broadway shows include Hello Dolly, Mame, Dear World, Mack & Mabel, The Grand Tour and La Cage Aux Folles. His string of awards and honours includes multiple Tony, Grammy, Olivier and Drama Desk Awards, the Johnny Mercer Award, the Richard Rodgers Award, the Oscar Hammerstein Award, the Songwriters Hall of Fame and the Theatre Hall of Fame. Jerry also has the distinction of being the only composer-lyricist in history to have three musicals run for more than 1,500 performances on Broadway.

Created by Jerry Herman and collaborator Larry Alford in 1981, Jerry’s Girls originated as a modest cabaret presentation at Onstage, a nightclub located in New York’s theatre district in midtown-Manhattan. After La Cage Aux Folles opened to rave reviews two years later, a full-scale, all-star production was mounted which opened at Broadway’s St. James Theatre in 1985 with a cast including Chita Rivera, who received a Tony-Award nomination for her performance.

PROPAGANDA AND THE CULT
OF THE KIMS: daily life in the Hermit Kingdom


Jeremy Hunter - the celebrated photographer - has had unprecedented access to North Korea, and has compiled and shot an extraordinary record of daily life in one of the most secretive and isolated states on Earth.
North Korea (DPRK) is the only hereditary communist 'monarchy' in the world. It is also the most repressive nation on earth, probably the most brutal and certainly the most secretive. Propaganda pervades every single facet of life in North Korea. The Cult of the Kim Dynasty is not only based on, but sustained, through propaganda. And by consistent, and persistent, distortion and fabrication of the truth.
Robert Gates, former CIA director, considered the country to be "the toughest intelligence target in the world". Jeremy Hunter is one of a band of Pyongyang "watchers" who is both repelled yet fascinated by the country. He entered the country just before the death of Kim Jong-Il, Kim 2, the Dear Leader, to photograph "ARIRANG" - an extraordinary, epic, propagandist spectacle.

It was a two hour mass-celebration on a mind-boggling scale that had been staged outdoors, in Pyongyang in the world's largest stadium, every August and September for the previous ten years featuring a meticulously choreographed military and gymnastic display before vast backdrops created out of thousands of hand-held flip charts. In 60 minutes, Jeremy Hunter illustrates and reveals the cultural and political significance of many of these backdrops, and in the first half of his talk gives an extraordinary account of daily life in one of the strangest and most secretive states on Earth.
