Cherry Orchard, The

Cherry Orchard, The
Oh, the trees! Nothing but white and green as far as you can see - remember, Lyuba? Oh my lovely childhood. Waking up to happiness, looking out at blossom and trees and there they are - the same trees, the same blossom - after cruel winter, warmth and light and feeling! In his masterpiece the Cherry Orchard, Chekhov maintains an exquisite balance between elegiac celebration of the romance of the past, as embodied in the cherry orchard in full bloom, and the awesome prescience of what is so soon to overwhelm Russia - revolution. the themes are majestic, and yet at the centre of the play is Ranevskaya, a tragic woman who lacks adroitness for survival in a changing world but who has one asset: a capacity for love. It is her solution - and Chekhov's

Dusa, Fish, Stas And Vi

Dusa, Fish, Stas And Vi
the scene is an unpretentious London flat, where four young women, on their own for various reasons, have thrown in together. DUSA, who returns as the play begins, laments the loss of her children, who have been abducted by her estranged husband; Fish, an upper-class intellectual and "women's libber," finds herself rejected by the one man she can truly love; Stas, a nurse and part-time hustler, regards men-and life-with a cynicism so bitter as to be suspect; while Vi, a zany "flower child," withdraws into Zen, pills and starvation diets. In a series of revealing, inventive scenes, sometimes hilarious, sometimes deeply affecting, the four endeavor to help each other in pulling their lives together and in finding the sense of purpose and individuality which can so easily elude women in contemporary society. the end result, like life itself, is mixed-a degree of success for three of the friends and tragedy for the fourth.

Capturing the magic and cruelty of Hans Christian andersen's original tale, this powerful new version reveals the spectacle of the worlds below and above the sea, and the sadness of unfulfilled romance between a mermaid and a prince.

Mrs Pat

Mrs Pat
At the turn of the century, Mrs. Patrick Campbell was england's most celebrated and notorious actress. an acclaimed beauty, loved by many, she is remembered for her wit, for bad behaviour, and her close friendship with George Bernard Shaw. She was a great actress, when she wanted to be. She had a low boredom threshold and frequently behaved dreadfully on stage. Her work was daring and unpredictable, enhanced by her great beauty. Shaw worshipped her, wrote Pygmalion for her and begged her to play eliza. Rather than living to work she always worked to live and died in exile and poverty. Pam Gems' new play is about the art and craft of acting and the turmoil of being a woman who was meant to please but couldn't resist using her mind

Yerma

Yerma
Set in a remote Spanish village it follows the story of Yerma, a woman of full of life and passion, who longs for a child but is unable to conceive. This compelling and elemental tale of a woman's quest for a child taps into some of the most universal themes of theatre - love, passion, sexuality, marriage.
