NEW SEASON

 

House of America by Ed Thomas

Tues 27 June to Sat 15 July  2017  at 7.45pm

produced by Free Fall productions and Ysbryd London

directed by James O’Donnell

 

Abandoned by their father for a new life in California, siblings Sid, Gwenny and Boyo are left to care for their mysterious mammy and her growing eccentricities.

 

With the new mine encroaching in on the family home, their secrets are unearthed and dreams of America soon unravel. As tragedy unfolds, was reality ever what it seemed?

 

Explosive and passionate, House of America received international acclaim when first staged in Cardiff in 1988. It later transferred to the Royal Court Theatre in 1989 before being made into a feature film in 1996. Ed Thomas’s other work includes Hinterland / Y Gwyll shot in Welsh and English for S4C and BBC Wales. He is also the founding member and creative director of Cardiff based film and TV production company Fiction Factory.

 

 

 

 

 

The Taming of the Shrew by William Shakespeare

Tues 18 July – Saturday 5 August 2017  at 7.45pm

Produced by Lazarus Theatre Company

 

 

I see a woman may be made a fool

If she had not a spirit to resist.

 

 

Lazarus Theatre’s Season of Legacy continues with Shakespeare’s feisty The Taming of the Shrew. Kate talks too much; at least, that’s what the men of Padua think. So they persuade Petruchio to marry her and bring his wilful wife to heel.

 

 

Part farce, and part tragedy, The Taming of the Shrew dramatises society’s attempt to control and one woman’s bid to resist. Shakespeare’s witty play hits the stage in an all-new gusty and energetic ensemble production. Using text, movement and a contemporary score, this is a Shrew not to be missed.

 

Lazarus is an award-winning Theatre Company, re-imagining and revitalising classic text for a contemporary audience.

 

 

 

Teaching A Dillo To Cross The Road by David Moberg

produced by Tennessee Theatre Company

directed by Annie Tanton

Tues 22 – Saturday 26 August 2017  at 7.45pm

 

It all started when…

 

Will returns to May, his alcoholic wife, who is burdened with looking after Will’s sick father Sam, with the aid of the mousy nurse Flo, who’s recently lost her father and is carrying around the urn of his ashes unsure of where scatter them.

 

We are thrown into a world of volatile uncertainty as we enter the lives of these mid-western working class Americans. Sex, violence, alcohol, death and unspoken tragedy are major players in this explosive piece of new writing by American playwright David Moberg.

 

The combination of suppressed grief, stress from dementia in the family, alcoholism, secrets and scatalogical references make Dillo a crucible of combustible elements, a smorgasbord of dramatic possibilities. Breaking the Fourth Wall.

 

 

 

Adam & Eve

a new play by Tim Cook

produced by Broken Silence Theatre

Tues 29 August to Sat 2 September 2017 at 7.45pm

 

What does it say about the state of our relationship. If one small thing comes along.

And destroys it forever?

 

Newlyweds Adam & Eve are moving to the countryside, leaving the city behind for good. They’re going to buy a house, start a family and live happily ever after. But when Adam is suspended from work and accusations are made, they’re forced to question how well they really know each other.

 

What lurks beneath the surface? And how can their marriage survive in a post-truth society?

 

Adam & Eve is a startling new play about trust and the nature of accusations from award-winning Royal Court Young Writer Tim Cook.
