Richard III

Richard III

Richard, Duke of Gloucester. Boris Johnson. Ambitious, manipulative, ruthless men, scheming to reach the height of power.

This retelling of one of Shakespeare’s most popular history plays does away with duels, grandly dressed nobles and pitched battles, taking us instead to the current seat of power in the United Kingdom: Westminster. 

The green benches and corridors buzz with betrayal, deception and plots as our protagonist tries to clear the obstacles blocking his route to the ultimate prize – and then to cling desperately to his position.

 Combining a modern political setting with innovative technical elements and Shakespeare’s timeless prose, this fresh production will tell the old story of Richard III in a new way, connecting with those seeing the story for the first time and delighting abiding fans.

Algy needs to get away from his fierce aunt, Lady Bracknell, and Jack wants to escape his responsibilities for his innocent guardian Cecily….will it all end happily? We know only that there will be handbags…..

A Bunch of Amateurs

A Bunch of Amateurs

Washed-up Hollywood action hero Jefferson Steele, arrives in England to play King Lear in Stratford only to find that this is a sleepy Suffolk village with a Bunch of Amateurs!

11-14 October with a matinee on Saturday starting at 2.30.
Keen to boost his flagging career, washed-up Hollywood action hero Jefferson Steele, arrives in England to play King Lear in Stratford only to find that this is not the birthplace of the Bard, but a sleepy Suffolk village and the cast are a bunch of amateurs trying to save their theatre from being bulldozed to make way for executive homes rather than RSC stalwarts.
Jefferson’s monstrous ego, vanity and insecurity are tested by the enthusiastic amateur thespians – who are not averse to a spot of ego, vanity and insecurity themselves. As acting worlds collide and Jefferson’s career implodes, he discovers some truths about himself and his relationships with other people… along with his inner Lear!

There is only one thing I fear in life, my friend…One day the black will swallow the red.

Under the watchful gaze of his young assistant and the threatening presence of a new generation of artists, Mark Rothko takes on his greatest challenge yet: to create a definitive work for an extraordinary setting.

A moving and compelling account of one of the greatest artists of the 20th century whose struggle to accept his growing riches and praise became his ultimate undoing.

Nominated for 7 Olivier Awards (2009) and winner of six Tony Awards 2010, including Best New Play.
