FARFETCHED FABLES

Directed by Michael Friend
Produced by Léonie Scott-Matthews
Design by John Dalton


Shaw’s post-atomic play from 1948. Even in his last plays Shaw’s virtuosity, technical sparkle and ability to stimulate and challenge an audience remain wholly undiminished.

 “As I have now entered my 93rd year, my fans must not expect from me more than a few crumbs dropped from the literary loaves I distributed in my prime, plus a few speculations as to what may happen in the next million light years that are troubling me in the queer second wind that follows second childhood.”

                                                      Bernard Shaw

Bethany Blake, Albert Clack, Jesse Cooper, Janna Fox & Karl Niklas

THE TINKER'S WEDDING &
IN THE SHADOW OF THE GLEN

Written by J.M. Synge
(1871 – 1909)


Directed by John Dunne
Produced by Léonie Scott-Matthews

The Tinker’s Wedding: Sarah Casey convinces the reluctant Michael Byrne to marry her by threatening to run off with another man. She accosts a local priest, and convinces him to wed them for ten shillings and a tin can. Michael's mother shows up drunk and harasses the priest, then steals the can to exchange it for more drink. The next morning Sarah and Michael go to the chapel to be wed, but when the priest finds that the can is missing he refuses to perform the ceremony. Sarah protests and a fight breaks out that ends with the priest tied up in a sack. The tinkers free him after he swears not to set the police after them and he curses them in God's name as they flee in mock terror.

In the Shadow of the Glen: A tramp seeking shelter in the Burkes' isolated farmhouse in County Wicklow finds Nora tending to the corpse of Dan. Nora goes out to find Michael and Dan reveals to the tramp that his death is a mere ruse. He plays dead again when Nora and Michael return, but leaps up in protest when Michael proposes to Nora. Dan kicks Nora out to wander the roads and she leaves with the tramp, who promises her a life of freedom.

THE EDUCATION OF A LAP DANCER

by John Cooper

Immigrant workers in the sex industry… stressed out teachers in the public sector… violence and racial tension in the inner city… East Europeans trying to make a fast euro… this is London at the sharp end… at the cutting edge.

 

Fast-moving, raw and humorous John Cooper's play cuts through the spin and the platitudes and looks at the increasingly complex cultural mix that is London today. If you're a personable young girl from Romania, what will get you further, a GCSE or a G-string?

 

First produced at The Pleasance Theatre in London, The Education of a Lap Dancer received universally good reviews.


Thursday, Friday & Saturday at 8.00pm
Sunday at 5.00pm


Tickets: £13.00 / Concessions: £10.00
