A story of love, adultery and lust. A waltz through the love stories of three couples who start off in the wrong relationship and over the course of a country weekend eventually find the right one. Sondheim describes it as ‘whipped cream with knives’. A wonderfully score (Send in the Clowns) and sharp witty lyrics and dialogue.
In Paul Doust's hilarious stage play, the heroine, Flora Poste, embarks upon a quest to discover her family’s roots, and as a result the “nice girl from London” meets the rough and ready Starkadders of Cold Comfort Farm. <em>Tickest available during the Sound Of Music Box office sessions and as shown below.</em>
The Last Bread Pudding - Nick Warburton The committee of an amateur dramatic group are meeting to discuss a new play written by one of its members. The presentation of the meeting reflects the ideas put forward by the committee, making the play a demonstration as well as a discussion of those ideas. Very tongue in cheek, styilzed and over the top. Last Tango in Little Grimley - David Tristram Little Grimley Amateur Dramatic Society is in trouble. The membership has dwindled to 4 and the audiences are not much bigger. They need rent money soon or they will be thrown out of their premises. There's only one thing that sells tickets these days argues the chairman. Thus begins the chaotic and hilarious build up to an evening of extraordinary home grown drama that won't be forgotten in a hurry. NB: These plays contain adult humour.
Robin Hood, our heroic Principal boy has to thwart the dastardly Sheriff of Nottingham and his flunkies Guy and Gal of Gisbourne who are on the verge of taking over Merrie Old England in the absence of Richard the Lionheart. Fairy Britannia is there to help (once she's had a nice cuppa), and he has his Very Merry Men to help him...even if most of them are women. Nursie Nancy is there to cause confusion while Robin tries to save the day and the love of his life Maid Marian all before the end of Act 2! A new pantomine written by our own Vicky Orman.
Timberlake Wertenbaker's Our Country's Good is a moving and funny play, but most of all it is a cry of triumph for the power and enduring worth of theatre and it ends on a heart-lifting note. Dealing with the story of the first play to be performed on Australian soil to an audience of convicts, gaolers, Officers and marines of the fleet by a cast of convicts, it follows the development of the play and the convict players.
A Bristol Old Vic Theatre School production.<br />A comic masterpiece, Tom Jones is deservedly a classic in English literature. Sheer fun and bursting with bawdy scenes, it's a tasty treat from beginning to end. Expelled from Mr Allworthy's country estate for his wild temper and sexual conquests, the good-hearted foundling Tom Jones loses his money, joins the army and pursues his beloved across Britain to London, where he becomes a kept lover,,, Our hero's actions were, in 1749, as shocking as they are funny today and joyously relevent to a modern day audience.
