 WHAT'S ON

 

 

 

Tosca

27 Sep — 28 Oct

Opera  Kings Head Theatre

   

Paris. August, 1944. As the Second World War rages on, lovers Tosca and Cavaradossi give refuge to a political prisoner and find themselves ensnared in the machinations of the tyrannical head of the Paris Gestapo, Scarpia. As Charles De Gaulle’s liberation movement advances and US troops tighten their net around the Nazi occupiers, everything Tosca holds dear is about to be torn apart.

 

The King’s Head Theatre’s brand new production of Puccini’s searing thriller of power and passion relocates the action to the heart of the twentieth century’s defining conflict. With rousing melodies, an intimate setting and a brand new libretto by Adam Spreadbury-Maher and Becca Marriott, this is Tosca as you’ve never seen it before!

 

 

 

The Diary of a Nobody

31 Oct — 18 Nov

Drama  Rough Haired Pointer

 

Captioned Performance: Tuesday 7th November

 

4 male actors, 45 mix gender roles, a stage full of props, a party, a brawl, a broken engagement and a lot of bad puns. This is a comedy of lovingly controlled chaos.

 

Evelyn Waugh called The Diary of a Nobody ‘the funniest book in the world’. First published in the 1800s, it tells the story of a self-important but tender-hearted Victorian office-worker. Mr. Pooter never loses his sense of humour as he is made to deal with the trails of everyday life - a wayward son, trouble at the office, house hold improvements gone wrong and the annoyance of catching your foot in the mat whilst trying to leave the room in silent dignity.

This cult Victorian novel is transformed into an uproarious comedy through inventive and imaginative staging. Balancing moments of wild humour against the insightful depiction of an ordinary life and happy marriage, this is a show with a surreal comic flair and a strongly beating emotional heart.
