MOMENTS & EMPTY BEDS by Julia Cranney

30 Jan - 17 Feb 2018 Tuesday - Saturday 7.45pm

Tickets £15 & £12 concs

 

Produced by double award winning Pennyworth Production, a double bill of ‘MOMENTS’ and ‘EMPTY BEDS’. Both productions  explore modern loneliness, family and missed connections. These plays are funny, frank and touching in equal measure.

MOMENTS: Daniel and Ava are two strangers who at first glance have nothing in common. He’s 56, she’s 25. He’s a talker, she’s a listener. But after a series of chance (and awkward) encounters, it’s starting to look like they’re becoming… friends?

EMPTY BEDS:  The Wyld sisters tend to avoid each other. Today they’re stuck on a train, en route to visit their brother for his birthday. In light of recent events, they’re determined to show a united front. But 250 miles into the journey, patience is wearing thin…

 

WHEN YOU FALL DOWN

11 & 12 Feb

 

With slapstick, songs and a soft shoe shuffle, When You Fall Down tells Buster’s story from his first movie-making experience in 1917 to his signing by MGM in 1928.

We watch Buster as he films his iconic movies, following his personal and professional triumphs and trials; culminating in the most dangerous stunt of all.

 

 

FOUL PAGES

20 Feb - 17 Mar

 

Raleigh’s condemned, Shakespeare’s desperate and the Countess of Pembroke has a plan! It’s 1603, and a new play has been commissioned to seduce the King into a merciful mood. FOUL PAGES is a fruity farce is full of scandalous secrets, backstage betrayals and lusty liaisons. You think you know your Shakespeare? Think again!

Directed by The Hope Theatre’s award winning Artistic Director Matthew Parker.
