I saw the pale student of unhallowed arts kneeling beside the thing he had put together.
Victor Frankenstein, a brilliant and ambitious young student, discovers the secret of creating life from the remains of the dead. But elation at his triumph is replaced by horror when he realises the full extent of his monstrous creation. Abandoned by the one who made him, Frankenstein’s Creature is left alone in a world that fears and rejects him, and soon his innocence turns to misery. Increasingly desperate and vengeful, he determines to track down his creator and strike a terrifying bargain.
Five-time Offie-Nominated Arrows & Traps bring to life a remarkable brand-new adaptation of this thrilling and haunting gothic tale about the dangers of scientific irresponsibility and parental neglect, in celebration of the 200 year anniversary since Mary Shelley wrote the original manuscript.
ON THE PISTE by John Godber
produced by David Ball Productions
24 October - 11 November
Strap on your skis and join us for an avalanche of laughs as acclaimed British playwright John Godber takes us On The Piste to the slopes of Chamonix in this bitter-sweet Olivier nominated comedy.
First timers and Brits abroad, Chris and Alison, Bev and Dave take to the slopes and the sauna as the ski novices try to impress. They’ve got the designer salopettes, but do they have the courage to hit the slopes? Athletic ski instructor Tony is eager to put them through their paces. Both on and off piste! Away from home, emotions and passions are running high while the ‘après ski’ brings nerves and insecurities dangerously close to the surface.
Once the skis have been clicked into place, there’s no stopping this fast paced and side-splitting play from the author of the hugely popular Bouncers.
THE IMPORTANCE OF BEING EARNEST
by Oscar Wilde
Tuesday 14 November to Saturday 2 December 2017 at 7.45pm
presented by David Ball Productions and Redwright Productions
In matters of grave importance, style, not sincerity, is the vital thing.
John Worthing and Algernon Moncrieff are dissatisfied with their tediously mundane lives. To escape the burden of social obligation they attempt to win the hearts of two women who claim to only love men called Ernest. Both men create alter ego’s and become tangled in a web of mishap and misadventure.
It is exquisitely trivial, a delicate bubble of fancy, and it has a philosophy…. That we should treat all the trivial things of life very seriously, and all the serious things of life with sincere and studied triviality. Oscar Wilde
