Cabaret BULLETS & DAFFODILS

(THE WILFRED OWEN STORY)
War poetry as it's never been heard before:
Wilfred Owen - A Voice Reborn!

By Dean Johnson

Directed by Dean Sullivan



Returning to The Jermyn Street Theatre, where it enjoyed a sell-out premiere in 2012, this brand new production marks the centenary of War Poet Wilfred Owen's enlistment into the nearby Artist Rifles regiment in 1915.
The piece represents a passionate tribute in song and spoken word. Dean Johnson has set many of Owen’s greatest poems to music, and tells the story of the doomed poet’s life from his childhood in Birkenhead to his death in the trenches.
The script contains contributions from TV writer David Quantick (The Thick Of It, Grumpy Old Men).

Direction is by multi award-winning actor Dean Sullivan (known for his role as Jimmy Corkhill in the groundbreaking Channel 4 soap Brookside).
Executive producer and guest narrator Mark Reed is the son of actor Oliver Reed. His voice bears a striking resemblance to that of his famous father.

The British Theatre Guide: “Thought-provoking, moving and different”
“Bullets and Daffodils is and has a good contemporary way of introducing people of all ages, but particularly the younger, to Wilfred's poetry.” – (Peter Owen, Wilfred's Nephew)

CAST:
Dean Sullivan (Siegfried Sassoon), Dean Johnson (Musical narrator),
Mark Reed Narrator, Lindsey Field (Susan Owen).

with special guest: Nicholas Ball (Cockney Tommy)

THE GREEN BAY TREE

by Mordaunt Shairp
Directed by Tim Luscombe
Deasigned by Gregor Donnelly


"I hope I shan't meet you one day in Piccadilly with a painted face, just because you must have linen sheets"

A beautiful young man is forced to choose between the love of his fiancee and the lifestyle of his male mentor.

This is the infamous comedy of manipulation that, in 1934, made a leading Broadway star of Laurence Olivier, opposite his then-wife Jill Esmond.

This major revival - the first since the 1950s - is directed by internationally acclaimed Olivier Award nominee Tim Luscombe.
It stars Christopher Leveaux, recently seen in the Michael Grandage season (Noel Coward Theatre) in the Olivier role, alongside Poppy Drayton, well-known as Madeleine Allsopp in last year's Downton Abbey.

'A wonderful piece of work... brilliantly done and sensationally successful'
Laurence Olivier 'Confessions of an Actor'

CAST:
Alister Cameron, Poppy Drayton, Richard Heap, Christopher Leveaux
and Richard Stirling


THE GUARDIAN
“Tim Luscombe’s immaculately designed production” “Richard Stirling certainly captures the character’s mix of exquisite taste and iron determination.
There are also good performances from Christopher Leveaux as the sexually ambivalent Julian, Poppy Drayton as an unusually well-attired vet and Alister
Cameron as a gravely omniscient butler”

LIBBY PURVES
“Leveaux gives a real sense of a youth struggling to escape the damage done by soft spoiling..” “... terrific confrontations between Dulcimer and Poppy Drayton’s fine, angry Leonora...” “a grand melodramatic conclusion..”

WHATSONSTAGE
“Mordaunt Shairp's riveting 1933 play... revived here in a skilful production...” “... there's no denying the conviction with which Richard Stirling makes Dulcimer an art deco lampshade, posing and preening...”

THE STAGE
“... intriguing play... pertinent, contemporary revival...” “strong, central performances from Christopher Leveaux as Julian and Poppy Drayton as Leonora..”


Tuesday to Saturday 7.30pm, Saturday/Sunday matinees 3.30pm

BLIND DATE

by Dave Simpson

Directed by Alice Bartlett


Andrew and Angela are looking for love.
After exaggerating and lying about their physical attractiveness on a singles website, they meet up on a potentially disastrous date.
Will they compromise in their search for the perfect partner? Or are they destined to a life alone in front of the TV watching re-runs of their favourite soaps? By turns hilarious and heartbreaking, Blind Date will strike a chord with anyone who has ever fallen in or out of love.

Blind Date has been developed from two hugely popular short plays, Blind Date and Blind Date 2, which previewed in Manchester last year as part of JB Shorts.
This world-premiere production of the full-length play reunites the JB Shorts creative team of writer Dave Simpson (Emmerdale, Girls' Night Out, The Naked Truth) and director Alice Bartlett (Harrogate Theatre, Hull Truck, West Yorkshire Playhouse) with actors Susan Mcardle (Hetty Feather, Coronation Street, Early Doors) and Will Travis (Coronation Street, This Is England, Where The Heart Is).

“The innocence and directness of the characters cuts away preconceptions and reveals the humanity behind looking for love..A very good play indeed. ” Now Then Manchester

“Very funny and rather poignant. Simpson really hits his stride here.” The Independent

“Some very funny writing ... made the most of by perfect comic delivery by the two excellent leads.” British Theatre Guide

Drew Cain, Verity-May Henry, Susan Mcardle & Will Travis

THE LAST
of the De MULLINS

by St John Hankin

Directed by Joshus Stamp-Simon
Set Design by Victoria Johnstone

Set in the Edwardian England of 1908, the work is startlingly modern in its outlook.

As the suffragette movement grows, one woman, Janet De Mullins, defies her family and the traditions of the age, rejoicing in being a working mother and refusing to be tied to the institution of marriage. But her independence threatens the family line.

The Last of the De Mullins first premiered in 1908 at the Haymarket Theatre in London. This production will be the play’s first professional staging in Britain since 1909, in spite of the fact that its author, St John Hankin, also a Times theatre critic, has been described as the comic bridge between Wilde and Coward and a contemporary and admired colleague of Shaw.

THE HEART
OF THINGS

by Giles Cole

Directed by Knight Mantell

Over a weekend in May 2010, in the aftermath of the last general election, the political parties are wrangling over who will form the coalition government.

Meanwhile, in a village near the Norfolk coast, a disillusioned English teacher and parttime election volunteer comes home for a rare visit and tries to put his life in order. However, the politics of family life can be every bit as vindictive and unpredictable as the Whitehall variety, and alliances can be made or broken without warning.

The Heart of Things explores the themes of family, ambition, love and loyalty. And birthdays. It examines the conundrum that exists in sexual identity and the ‘minor disturbances’ that have far-reaching effects in people’s private lives.
The play was written in tandem with The Art of Concealment – from the same creative team, which transferred to Riverside Studios from Jermyn Street in May 2012 following wide critical acclaim.
