In Hiding

We are your problem…we go do beta next time…

Maternal love battles with Nigerian high society tradition in this touching and often hilarious new drama.

Excitement and joy usually surround a Nigerian “Owambe” party: the see-and-be-seen power networking opportunity for status climbers. Like Bimpe DaCosta of Lagos high society. But the realities of being a single mum raising an autistic child prove to be discordant dance steps for Bimpe, whose experience of motherhood is at war with tradition. 

In turns funny and moving, and always insightful, In Hiding weaves universally relatable themes of social identity and motherhood, exposing a world in love with status – real or imagined.

The Tower Theatre Company is proud to be producing this exuberant new play by Hackney born and raised British Nigerian writer, Adenike Ojo. A heartfelt appeal to the land of her ancestors, this is a plate of “jollof rice” you should certainly not miss out on!

Directed by Kanayo Ono

Crookback – Shakespeare’s Richard III rebooted

This February Midland Players, are back on stage with the premiere of a newly published play which reimagines one of Shakespeare’s most well-known works.
Writing to please his patron, Elizabeth I, and relying on sources which supported the Tudor portrayal of Richard III as a usurper of the throne of England and mass murdering tyrant, Shakespeare crafted one of the most monstrous villains of literature – a physically deformed fiend that came to supplant the Richard of history! How different might that play be if Shakespeare wrote it today, with access to all the historical information now available, and at no risk of losing his head? That is the question which Crookback – Shakespeare’s ‘Richard III’ Rebooted seeks to answer.
With updated language, and the long boring bits removed (!), ‘Crookback’ is Shakespeare for people who think they don’t like Shakespeare, and even though this version of ‘Richard III’ may be missing a hunchback, audiences can expect duplicitous rogues plotting to seize the throne, doomed romance, rolling heads, and dark comedy!
This great show runs from Weds. 15th to Sat. 18th Feb. at Sheffield University Drama Studio, Shearwood Road, S10 2TD,
Doors 7pm, curtain up at 7.30 pm.

Flowers for Mrs Harris

Flowers for Mrs Harris

This is the story of one woman’s dream of achieving the impossible.

For Ada Harris, day-to-day life is spent cheerfully cleaning houses. But when she happens upon something that takes her breath away, something deep within her awakens and she sets off on a journey that will change her life.

From the cobbled streets of post-war London to the magical avenues of Paris and beyond, Ada transforms the lives of everyone she meets along the way, but can she let go of her past and finally let her own life blossom?

Flowers for Mrs Harris had its World Premiere at the Crucible Theatre, Sheffield in May 2016, directed by Daniel Evans and transferred to the Chichester Festival in 2018. Winner of the UK Theatre Awards 2016 for Best Musical Production, Best Performer in a Musical (Clare Burt as Ada Harris) and Best Design, this new musical is certainly not to be missed!
