MOBILE MANIA

By ANDREW BARROW
Featuring CRAIG BROWN, VIRGINIA IRONSIDE, ANDREW MARTIN AND OTHERS

This rollicking one-off show celebrates an all-pervasive modern phenomenon: over-heard mobile conversation, those tasty or repellent one-sided fragments of other people's private and professional lives, their gestures of despair and irritation, their mega-tantrums, in-jokes, instant post-mortems, office politics, whoops of joy and anger, devilishly dull domestic detail, ultimatums, gossip, sporting news, amorous overtures, transport problems and breathtakingly banal banter.

This first dramatisation of Andrew Barrow's Great Book of Mobile Talk, illustrated by Posy Simmonds and published by Square Peg last year, embraces not only life, death and the whole damn thing but also carries an eerie sense of multiple off-stage dramas.

Sunday 7th September 4.30pm & 7.30pm

Tickets: £12.00.
All tickets booked via Box office with any credit/debit card is subject to a £1.00 booking fee (e:g £15 + £1 = £16.00)
Tickets booked online are subject to the above plus an additonal booking fees (see online booking screen)

Book and Lyrics by Tim Sanders

Designer Simon Anthony Wells

Coinciding with the centenary of the First World War, The Return of the Soldier is an intimate new chamber musical based on Rebecca West's celebrated 1918 novel of the home front.
An intensely bitter-sweet tale dissects the very different love of three women for Christopher. When he returns from the war with shell-shock, there are profound consequences for each of them.

FLOWERS OF THE FOREST

by John Van Druten
Directed by Anthony Biggs
Designer Victoria Johnstone
Lighting Designer Charlie Lucas
Sound Designer Gareth McLeod

1934, Bedford Square, London. In their beautiful and tasteful home Naomi and Lewis Jacklin live a contented, if unromantic, life of luxury. But when her disapproving sister Mercia arrives unexpectedly one evening with some of Naomi's old belongings, memories of the past, long since forgotten, flicker to life: a vicarage in Sussex in October 1914, and a final dinner before the men leave for war...

Set during and after the First World War, John van Druten's Flowers of the Forest is an enthralling, heart-wrenching story of love, memory and devastating loss by one of the most acclaimed playwrights of the 1930s.

John Van Druten (1901-1957) was a prolific playwright who achieved success in Britain and America. He is best known for his play I am a Camera (1951), his dramatisation of Christopher Isherwood's Berlin stories which formed the basis of the musical Cabaret. Other work includes Young Woodley (1925), London Wall (1931), Behold We Live (1932) and Bell, Book and Candle (1950), later made into a film starring James Stewart and Kim Novak. He wrote the screenplay for the film Gaslight starring Ingrid Bergman, Joseph Cotton and Angela Lansbury.

CAST:
Patrick Drury, Daniel Fine, Gareth McLeod, Debra Penny, Victoria Rigby,
Mark Straker, Alwyne Taylor, Gabriel Vick, Max Wilson and Sophie Ward.

THE GREEN BAY TREE


by Mordaunt Shairp
Directed by Tim Luscombe


"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.

Written by Mordaunt Shairp (1887-1939), the play was last revived in the early 1950s, when the lead was played in London by the playwright's stepson Hugh Williams (father of Simon Williams) and in New York by Denholm Elliott.

The Green Bay Tree (1933) was a scandalous hit in the West End and on Broadway.
Alexander Mordaunt Shairp was born in 1887 in Totnes, Devon. He died in January 1939.

'One of the three best plays of 1933' Evening News
'A wonderful piece of work... brilliantly done and sensationally successful' Laurence Olivier 'Confessions of an Actor'
