The Tailor-Made Man by Claudio Macor

2 - 25 November

 

The Tailor-Made Man, the powerful true story about the Hollywood studio system and its hypocrisy and the star who gave up everything for the man he loved, is get a 25th anniversary production in London.

William “Billy” Haines was a popular silent screen MGM movie star who was fired by Louis B Mayer because he was gay and

refused to give up his lifelong partner, Jimmie Shields, and marry the silent screen vamp Pola Negri. As punishment, his films

were removed from release and sealed in the MGM vaults never to be seen again, and his studio photographs destroyed.

It was an attempt to erase him completely from movie history. But Billy and Jimmy’s turbulent, passionate love affair was to

survive and lasted over 50 years...this is their story.

 

 

CURTAIN CALL by Simon Bradbury

29 November - 16 December

 

Once a respectable classical theatre actor, Stanley is now struggling with bouts of stage fright in a Murder Mystery on a pier in Southend on Sea.

Having been fired after his last disastrous Sunday matinee, he is visited by Shelley Kline, an ex-girlfriend who hopes to rescue him from his desperate straights and offers him a job with her. Now a successful theatre director and unaware of his problems with drink, she wants him to play Gloucester in an upcoming production of King Lear at the Apollo Rep, a prestigious west end theatre.

One of the problems, however, is that Rod C. Tanner, an old friend and rival for Shelley’s affections, is playing the king himself. Complicating things further is Rod’s TV star status and Stan’s resentment and feelings of inadequacy.

 

 

It's a Wonderful Nige by Patrick Lynch

19/20 November

 

When three housemates decide to host Christmas day, nothing can prepare them for the trail of devastation caused when their oven breaks down on the eleventh hour.

Losing hope, high functioning booze hounds Terry (Patrick Lynch) and Polly (Nadia Themistocleous) drown their festive sorrows. It takes their housemate Oliver (Tim Green) to find a solution, making the brave decision of asking their neighbour, a man named Nigel, for help. What follows is a tale of boiling passion, intense jealously and gross misuse of passion-fruit flavoured hand cream.

'It's a Wonderful Nige' is the debut play from Patrick Lynch and is a Christmas disaster like no other. Starring members of the former comedy sketch group 'Twisted Fudge', this play will make you think twice about who you spend your Christmas with. It may also decrease Neighbourhood Watch meetings in the UK. Be warned. These Christmas tarts may just drag you down with them...

 

 

 

Shakers by John Godber & Jane Thornton

3, 4 , 10 11 December

 

An opportunity to see Shakers in a short and sweet hour long production.

Meet the Girls: four long suffering waitresses who work at the ‘Shakers’ bar, and show you not only every customer they encounter but also a look in to their own lives.

This gritty play present's a wickedly funny, energetic, and cinematic style of storytelling reflecting both the hopes and disappointments of the young working class today in this richly absorbing yet revealing modern comedy.
