Macbeth

Sun 31st October 2021 6:00PM

Directed by Beth Wood

A powerful and haunting adaptation of Shakespeare’s Macbeth.

When Macbeth kills Duncan and all that is best in himself, the world turns upside down.

Beautiful poetry hits against heightened horror in this ensemble-focused retelling, drawing us into a world of festering ambition and hunger for power that seems frighteningly like our own.

Performance time 1 hour

Maryland by Lucy Kirkwood

6th, 7th, 27th Nov 2021 7:30PM

“This play was for many years a private conversation with myself. The horrific murders of Sarah Everard and Sabina Nessa this year have galvanised me into making it public. I hesitate to even call it a play when it is simply a howl, a way of expressing what I feel about a culture of violence against women, but I am sharing it because I wonder if it might express a little of what other people feel about it too. It was written very quickly, and I am grateful to the Royal Court for snatching up a gauntlet thrown down last Friday night with such energy, care and seriousness.“ – Playwright Lucy Kirkwood

The Royal Court Theatre has offered the Maryland performance script for free for any theatre company or drama training organisation in the UK interested to stage their own script-in-hand reading.

Coronavirus – A Great British Farce

Thu 11 Nov 2021, 7:30PM

Joe went a little bit mad during lockdown – just like you did – and it’s hilariously cathartic to watch. This smash-hit Camden Fringe show is inspired by the writer’s ridiculous lockdown diaries – and it’s the best way to laugh away the trauma of the past 18 months.

“Funny, intelligent, satirical” ⭐⭐⭐⭐, Theatre News
“The catharsis we all need” ⭐⭐⭐⭐, London Pub Theatres
“Thanks to Joe, I no longer feel quite so alone” ⭐⭐⭐⭐, A Younger Theatre

When the Lord God is persuaded by his retainer and chief-cook-and-bottle-washer Gabriel to take an incognito holiday in a Devonshire seaside hotel he looks forward to a fortnight of uninterrupted tennis, billiards, tea on the terrace and the latest Agatha Christie. But the presence of campaigning atheist Professor 'Minty' Tweddle and her fiance, notoriously hard-to-please theatre critic Rex Addison, upsets His plans and leads to all manner of supernatural scrapes, japes and narrow escapes and the invention of a hot new global dance craze.
 
From the writers of 'The Ministry of Biscuits' and 'Pugs of the Frozen North' stage show
- author Philip Reeve (Mortal Engines) and playwright and composer Brian Mitchell ('Those Magnificent Men') - comes the divine new musical comedy Lord God.

Two Way Mirror by Arthur Miller

Sat 19th March 2022 7:30PM

A double bill of short plays for the same two actors, looking at relationships, reality and how we interact and view one another, and doing so in a witty, fast-paced, dark but warm way.

 
It is also regarded by many as Miller's only oblique artistic exploration of his failed marriage to Marilyn Monroe.
