Anthem for Doomed Youth
Based on the poems of Wilfred Owen,
Devised and directed by David Fletcher
An anthology of the poems of the incomparable Wilfred Owen, plus some other writing from the period. The poems have been arranged to tell the story of the war from the enthusiastic send-off, through battles to the ‘drawing down of blinds’. These brilliant poems will be delivered in dramatic settings, some spoken by soldiers and some by the women who observe them, with songs and hymns from the war.
This most delicious of Shakespeare’s comedies portrays mistaken identities, bewildering desires, practical jokes, and ribald revelry. Twelfth Night, written as a Christmas entertainment, is a tale of unrequited love –both comic and heartbreaking. Twins are separated in a shipwreck, and forced to fend for themselves in a strange land. The first twin, Viola, falls in love with Orsino, who dotes on OIivia, who falls for Viola but is idolised by Malvolio. Enter Sebastian, who is the spitting image of his twin sister...and confusion reigns.
Skylight is a complex, thought-provoking, funny and remarkably timeless play about power, politics, and passion. On a chilly night in East London, schoolteacher Kyra Hollis receives an unexpected visit first from Edward Sergeant and then his father Tom Sergeant, Kyra’s one-time boss and long-time lover. After the painful, and unresolved, dissolution of Tom and Kyra’s relationship, the pair have pulled away from each other physically, emotionally, and ideologically, as Tom continues to focus on his business life and Kyra puts all her energy into teaching in an East End School. There is a bruising emotional truth in the writing, and an exhilarating mixture of wit and anger as these two wounded stubborn creatures rake over the ashes of their past.
