Lysistrata

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

By Aristophanes
Presented by Playing Up

There’s something rotten in the state of Athens. The Athenian men are permanently at war with someone; anyone and everyone! Currently it’s The Spartans, last month it was the Trojans, the year before The Peloponnesians… Now Lysistrata has had enough. She persuades women across Greece to go on a sex strike until their husbands lay down their arms. No peace – no sex!

Aristophanes’ timeless comedy has been skilfully upgraded with moments of commedia dell’arte slapstick and modern music, but without losing any of the naughtiness or feminist ideals. She’ll laugh, he’ll cry, they’ll stop fighting… if he knows what’s good for him!

Hutch

Wed 18 & Thu 19 Sep • 7:30pm • Full £10 Concs £8 • Community Theatre

By John Reynolds
Presented by Baz Jellicoe

Three vulnerable people sharing an attic divided into ‘hutches’ eke out a meek existence, but their landlord’s plans force them to choose between surrender or resistance. 

Hutch is a comedy with a serious message which examines the injustices and absurdities of the current housing crisis and, in particular, ‘sex for rent’. The play conveys the everyday struggles of long-term residents, Svenya and Bob, and new arrival, Debbie, in a world where the rogue landlord is king. 

Audience Feedback: 

 Hutch was superb: hard-hitting, but also very funny; theatrically innovative and very topical. 

Full of pathos, comedy and compassion. Not to mention three gripping, very three-dimensional, well-drawn characters about who we came to care a lot. 

“I enjoyed every minute of the play. It was funny, moving and conveyed a powerful message.”

And Then They Came For Me

Fri 22 & Sat 23 Nov • 7:30pm • Full £16 Concs £14 • Professional Theatre

And Then They Came for Me is a unique experience…a multimedia play that combines videotaped interviews with Holocaust survivors Eva Schloss and Ed Silverberg with live actors recreating scenes from their lives as teenagers during WW ll.
Ed was Anne Frank’s first boyfriend. Eva was the same age and lived across from Anne in Amsterdam until she and her family were arrested by the Nazis and sent to concentration camps. More than 1.25 million people were killed in Auschwitz-Birkenau where Eva and her family were sent.
Part oral history, part drama action, part remembrance, this play by James Still brings to life what happened after The Diary of Anne Frank ends. The ensemble-driven play breaks new ground and has been acclaimed by audiences and critics in world-wide productions.

“After the war, people said it would never happen again, and people didn’t want to talk about it—it was something that happened, let’s forget about it, now we live in a different life. What’s happening now in Bosnia and what’s happening in many other places…we’re still doing the same thing and again the world just looks on.” Eva Schloss
“one of the most important events I have seen…” 
Damian Todres, Wells Cathedral School
“it was stunning and has left an incredible impression on me. I’ve been to Auschwitz twice and to Anne Frank’s house twice too and yet your production added a new layer of emotion and connection to those unimaginable events.” 
Peter Kyle, MP Hove & Portslade
