The Breach

Fri 28 – Sat 29 Jun • 7.30pm • Full £14 Concs £10 • Professional Theatre

Written by William Shakespeare

Adapted by Apricity Theatre

History is written by the victors. But what about the people whose blood those victories were won with?

King Henry is a violent man and a threat too great for France to ignore as his armies plunder their churches and burn their towns to the ground. Henry’s soldiers struggle to come to terms with the blood they have shed in the name of their king, while Princess Katherine prepares herself for the arranged marriage she knows is on its way. With ‘explosive’ battles (Theatre Bath) and thumping beats, this new adaptation of Henry V explores the darker side of Shakespeare’s story through the eyes of the people used and forgotten by history.

Orphan

Thu 16 – Sat 18 May • 7.30pm • Full £14 Concs £12 • Professional Theatre

Written by Russell Eccleston
Presented by Black Dog Productions in association with Beyond the Horizon Theatre Company

“I never had a chance. They’d made up their mind about me from the moment they opened that door and found me bawling on the step.”

A small town in Georgia: a nameless Orphan returns to the orphanage where he was raised hoping that he can cauterise the wound that has been festering in him since he was a child. His friend Patience is brought along, on the grounds that she might find some sense of closure. When they bump into their old Caretaker who has information about their dark past, Orphan’s true motives start to become clear and Patience begins to lose control. Are sins ever forgiven? Or do sins simply beget more sins?

Originally produced by Black Dog Productions in 2018 to huge audience and critical acclaim, Orphan will leave you questioning the true meaning of ‘family’.

Monstrous

Wed 5 Jun • 8pm • Full £10 • Professional Theatre

Written & Performed by Alexandra Ricou

Hera is angry, but she’s been trying her best to get past it. She has a therapist, she’s read all the mindfulness books she can find in her local library, she goes to yoga every day and she drinks more green tea than even Gwyneth Paltrow could stomach. Yet still that deepseated rage twists in her guts like a pit of vipers. Then again, when you’re an Ancient Greek goddess, being filled with an unquenchable wrath comes with the territory. Perhaps it’s time to have a little vent… but is the world ready for 3000 years worth of anger?

Created by Charlotte Hobbs, Rosie Howard, Jessica Sterling, Maia Tassalini-Collins and Pippa Thornton
Presented by Flipside Productions

Take a dive into the lives of a group of twenty-somethings this summer, as Flipside Productions returns to the Rondo with a collection of new monologues presenting the female perspective on the one-night-stand.

Join the vibrant characters as they negotiate the pleasures and perils of dating as young women, each with her own story: some shocking, some moving and some hilarious, but all with one thing in common: there’s no strings attached!

This play was created by an ensemble of women with a passion for theatre and for working collaboratively. Some of the stories are inspired by true events, and some are entirely true. The audience are invited to have fun guessing which!

★★★★ “faultless and arresting performances in this clever and evocative piece. Flipside are clearly a company to watch.” Bath Echo on FRESHER
★★★★ “imaginatively staged, witty and piercing” Theatre Bath on Real Life
“Riveting to watch… astutely hilarious” That’s What She Said on FRESHER

Beryl's of Mayfair

Sat 15 Jun • 7.30pm • Full £14 Concs £12 • Professional Theatre

Presented by Ministry of Entertainment 

Mervyn’s going to Kidderminster. Beryl’s off for her monthly trip to the wholesaler in Exeter (or is she?) and there’s only Hattie, the over-zealous new junior, to keep an eye on the salon. What could possibly go wrong? 

Well… Mr. Bicknell is supposed to arrive early to repair the dry rot upstairs. He doesn’t. Susan hasn’t had her ‘hot water-tap training’ yet and now there’s a suspicious vagrant lurking in the back yard. The clients, Beryl’s ‘ladies,’ with their regular appointments are coming in any minute. Oh… and Blue Rinse Monday was such a huge success that some will have to be fitted in today, Tuesday. Well, Mervyn did offer the ‘silver’ clients the rinse at half-price. Oh no! Here comes Mrs. Bluett. She has new gossip and she’s peeking under all the dryers, looking for Mrs. Foster. 

Here they come. All hands to the sinks!

Folk music and stagework intertwine in this magical retelling from new theatre company Kerchief Theatre, who will be joined by folk sister duo Violette.
