Collaborators

Wed 19 – Sat 22nd Jun • 7.30pm • Full £14 Concs £12 • Community Theatre

Presented by The Rondo Theatre Company

Written By John Hodge

A darkly comic satire of Stalinist Russia, from the pen of John Hodge (of Trainspotting and Shallow Grave fame). ‘Collaborators’ follows writer Mikhail Bulgakov’s surreal journey as he is given the offer of a lifetime: write a play about Stalin’s early life. Or else.  Not something one easily turns down in 1930’s Moscow. The descent from hilarity to tragedy has rarely been portrayed quite so well on the stage – winning Hodge the 2012 Olivier Award for Best Play.

We are privileged to have John Hodge himself assisting with this production.  John will be attending Friday and Saturday night for a Q&A session with the audience following the performance.  Don’t miss this chance to enjoy a fantastic play and talk with its BAFTA award-winning and Oscar nominated author!

Faith

Fri 12 Jul • 8pm • Full £14 Concs £12 • Professional Theatre

Uncaged Theatre Presents…

To be a woman is to survive.
‘Call me on your way home’, ‘text me when you get home safe’ ‘walk along the main road, it’s well-lit’.

A woman is murdered, and the details of the case cause an earthquake of pain to those left in the fall out. Faith is based on true stories of Violence Against Women and Girls (VAWG).

The show is written to be an honest and detailed depiction of how anytime a woman is brutally murdered at the hands of a man, all women are affected. Using the mechanics of a friendship group as a microcosm of the reactions from the wider world, the show explores the trauma that is dredged up for those who were never taken seriously when they feared a male in their life.

All elements of the murder case in this script are based on true stories – women stalked by partners alerting the police to be ignored and then murdered, the girls groped on the bus and told ‘that’s just how it is, move away’ the women who walked the ‘well-lit’ way home only to be abducted by a police officer, the women who texted their friends ‘I’m nearly home now’ only to be murdered mere metres from their doorstep. ​

The show encourages a focus on the structures that allow men to keep murdering women at an alarming rate and highlights that women need more support and protection and need not to be blamed that we did not do enough to protect ourselves

Davidson, a young college student, lives with his granddad who has looked after him for the majority of his life after his parents disappeared, and encourages him to follow his dream: to compete in the Tour de France. He aspires to be one of the greats. His priorities are split between college, training for a cycling race that could land him a scholarship to study at university, his granddad’s deteriorating health, and Emily: a girl he becomes infatuated with. He becomes a rabbit in the headlights.

A story that explores the difficulties of growing up in a rural town, with no clear route to achieve the big dreams of youth.
