That Face

Wed 13 – Sat 16 Feb • 7:30pm • Full £12 Concs £10 • Community Theatre

Written by Polly Stenham

Presented by Playing Up Theatre Company

When Mia is expelled from school for drugging and torturing another pupil, we are soon introduced to her seriously dysfunctional family. However, this is no poor, working class tale of drink, drugs and a broken marriage. Mia’s Daddy is rich…very rich!  Polly Stenham’s blistering debut is a hard hitting, intense and visceral dissection of children who become parents to their parents,” exploring Martha, a woman on the brink.  As daddy flies in from Hong Kong to sort things out once and for all, Martha’s dependency on alcohol, anti-depressants and Henry her son increases. The uncomfortable end leaves the audience wondering who needs saving the most.  

”A quality of emotional desperation one more often associates with mature American dramatists like Tennessee Williams and Edward Albee.”  Michael Billington, The Guardian.

By April De Angelis

Presented by Rondo Theatre Company

A hilarious and shocking romp through theatrical history, as the Rondo becomes a seventeenth century theatre for a moving and funny play which shows that the exploitation of women in entertainment is nothing new.

This is the story of the first professional actresses to appear on the English stage, at the command of a monarch with an eye for a pretty girl. With historical characters such as Nell Gwyn and the Earl of Rochester, follow their stories of success and tragedy, and see how female performers have been fighting to be taken seriously as actors with spirit and humour since the earliest days.

One Man Two Guvnors

Wed 22 – Sat 25 May • 7:30pm • Full £12 • Community Theatre

By Richard Bean

Merriman Productions present Richard Bean’s award-winning play – a glorious celebration of British comedy: a unique, laugh-out-loud mix of satire, songs, slapstick and glittering one-liners.

Brighton, 1963, an easily confused Francis Henshall becomes separately employed by two men – Roscoe, a local gangster and Stanley Stubbers, an upper-class criminal. However, Roscoe is really Rachel Crabbe in disguise, her twin brother Roscoe having been killed by her lover, none other than Stanley Stubbers. Meanwhile, Pauline was originally meant to marry Roscoe but is now set to elope with over-the-top amateur actor Alan Dangle. All Francis has to do is stop them all from meeting each other… Simple?!
