Gallery of Screams: Two Stories by H P Lovecraft

Sat 25 Jun • 7:30pm • Full £16 Concs £14 • Professional Theatre

Adapted and Performed by R M Lloyd Parry
Presented by Nunkie Productions

“Any magazine-cover hack can splash paint around and call it a ‘Witches’ Sabbath’ or ‘Portrait of the Devil.’ But only a real artist can make it scare you…” 

In these two tales of terror by H P Lovecraft, an art critic and a philosopher get pushed to the edge of sanity by the images and sounds they confront.

Pickman’s Model introduces the uncannily brilliant work of Richard Upton Pickman – a genius shunned by the artistic establishment because of his sickening canvases. It is paired with The Music of Eric Zann, an eerie tale that Lovecraft himself counted as a personal favourite.

Be.

Thu 30 Jun • 8pm • Full £10 Concs £8 • Professional Theatre

Written by Gabrielle Finnegan
Presented by Greedy Pig Theatre Company

“Feminine? Masculine? Why can’t we just… be?”

The moment you were born, the doctor announced your gender, and the world put you in a box. And maybe that’s a comfortable box, and you’ll sit there happily for the rest of your life. But maybe it’s not… and what happens then? Be. follows three characters trying to break out of their boxes, as they discover what it means to be ‘Her’, ‘Him’ or ‘Them’, in a story intertwined with the authentic collective experiences of over 60 real people.

With enchanting music and provocative, poetic storytelling, Greedy Pig Theatre Company’s latest production gives a voice to those made restless by the constraints of gender within our communities, and asks why sometimes it’s so difficult to just… be.

Please note that Be. contains strong language and discusses themes of a sensitive nature, including discrimination, gender dysphoria, eating disorders, sex and mental health.

Macbeth

Wed 6 – Sat 9 Jul • 7:30pm • Full £14 Concs £12 • Community Theatre

By William Shakespeare
Presented by Rondo Theatre Company

“Stars, hide your fires; Let not light see my black and deep desires.” 
In the aftermath of the first world war, following the return of the soldiers to a country that was struggling to support them, organised crime erupted in the inner-city areas of England. Familiar with violence, the gangs were ruthless in their pursuit of power.

Duncan, a much respected (and feared) leader keeps the peace but is usurped by one of his own – Macbeth – pushed on by his ambitious wife.

The three witches, from their opium den of inequity, predicted this future and set Macbeth on a path for greatness and, of course, ultimately… destruction.

Come and bear witness to our dark and gritty journey: Macbeth as you’ve never seen it before…

This is RTC’s annual charity production. All profits are in aid of Marie Curie.
