Dispensing spurious charms and promises of gold, they whip the vain and greedy sucker list of London society into a frenzy of get-rich-quickery. But when they mistakenly target a fellow hustler, the sticky-fingered trio are in danger of coming unstuck. Ben Jonson’s 17th century satirical farce will be spun into pure comedy gold in the hands of rising star director Robert Icke.

STORIES FROM AN INVISIBLE TOWN Created by Hugh Hughes with

A DAY OF PLEASURE Stories of a Boy Growing Up in Warsaw

My childhood lasted 14 years and 11 days. It started on Thursday August 22nd 1968 and ended on Thursday September 2nd 1982…

New York. 1978. The cab driver is waiting to take him to the airport. The evening before he travels to Stockholm to collect the Nobel Prize for Literature, Isaac Bashevis Singer – a passionate, brilliant storyteller – recalls a fascinating childhood full of mystery, torment and adventure. A Day of Pleasure is about more than a young boy growing up in a strange and exotic world; it is about growing up itself. Singer brings to life the vivid characters of pre-war Warsaw, his own character and the human conditions that affect us all. Performed by Stuart Richman; a founding member of the Liverpool Everyman. “Only the dreamers, who dream while awake, call back the shadows of the past and braid from unspun threads, unspun nets.” Isaac Bashevis Singer 6

When Hugh Hughes returned to his childhood home in Llangefni to help his mum pack and move house, a tapestry of memories from his past, his family and the town he once called home began to unfold... His memories have grown and grown - bursting from Hugh’s head and into a website for us to explore and enjoy (www. invisibletownstories.co.uk). Now audiences have the chance to join Hugh, his brother and his sister, as family skeletons leave their closets in this unpredictable and hilarious evening of family stories. Each night, the Hughes family tell us about the good times, the not so good times and everything in between. “Few performers provoke such a warm response from an audience as Hughes.” The Times 7

THE SACRED FLAME By Somerset Maugham

EVERYWORD 2012

What happened on the night the young Great War hero, Maurice Tabret, died at home in his bed? His doctor says he died from natural causes, but his nurse points a finger of suspicion at his beautiful wife, Stella...

Everyword is the most celebratory moment in our year-round mission to nurture new voices and new stories. This packed festival provides an opportunity for our stable of Liverpool writers to meet, talk and work with inspiring writers and producers from around the country, and for fledgling plays to make their first connection with an audience.

The Playhouse and Studio will be buzzing again this October with another week of events, rehearsed readings, and workshops as part of our annual Everyword festival.

Director Matthew Dunster

Putting a twist on the classic murder mystery, this part thriller, part love story is by the enduringly popular playwright and novelist, Somerset Maugham, in a vivid new production directed by Matthew Dunster (Mogadishu).

AGE 14+ AW Wed 17 Oct

Somerset Maugham is known mostly for his celebrated novels Of Human Bondage, The Letter, Rain and The Razor’s Edge. The Sacred Flame is presented by English Touring Theatre whose recent work includes our co-productions of Tartuffe and The Hypochondriac. “English, Touring and Theatre are three wonderful words. Put together they are more wonderful still.” Sir Ian McKellen 8

Full details of this year’s events will be announced in September. “All writers need inspiration as well as a sense of community. The Everyword annual festival of new writing offers both.” Lyn Gardner, The Guardian

The festival has previously included first public readings of many plays that went on to full production, such as Unprotected, Intemperance, Lost Monsters, The Swallowing Dark and this autumn’s Held by Joe Ward Munrow.

A long distance race. Real time. Follow one runner, alone with his thoughts. Colin is defiant. A young rebel, inhabiting the no-man’s land of detention centres and young offenders’ institutes, as his steady running rhythm transports him over a harsh, frost-bitten earth. Adapted by BAFTA winning and Olivier Award nominated playwright Roy Williams OBE (Sucker Punch, Fallout, Sing Yer Heart Out For The Lads), this gritty adaptation unlocks the biting realism of Alan Sillitoe’s classic novel while placing the drama firmly in a contemporary frame.

A GOVERNMENT INSPECTOR Adapted by Deborah McAndrew

STEPTOE AND SON Adapted and Directed

from the original play by Nikolai Gogol Directed and Composed by Conrad Nelson

by Emma Rice

2 Men. 2 World Wars. 2 lives knitted together as tight as a thrice darned sock. Bound together by birth, business and bloody bad luck, Albert and Harold Steptoe wake up every morning to the same old, same old, sickening sight of each other. Joined at the hip and heart, they bother, bicker and banter their way through life - toying with each other’s frailties like mean kittens. Adapted from the legendary scripts of Galton and Simpson, this new production charts the tender, cruel and surprising dance of father and son. Darkly comic, and deeply moving, this is a 20th century icon, re-imagined for the next generation. ”Surreal and hilarious.” Liverpool ECHO on Kneehigh’s Hansel & Gretel (2010)

‘Where there’s muck there’s brass’ … and this hysterically funny tale of misdeeds, misadventure and mistaken identity has plenty of both.

In a small Pennine town a flashy young stranger is mistaken for a Government Inspector. The town’s unscrupulous Councillors do all they can to ingratiate themselves. Bribes, backhanders and brown envelopes abound and the stranger, who has an eye for a quick buck, takes full advantage with hilarious results. If you like your humour broad, your references topical, your heart warmed and your brass ‘live’, look no further than A Government Inspector. Absurdly funny, clever and strangely familiar, you’ll never trust your local authority again. “Politically sharp and hilarious.” The Observer on Northern Broadside’s Accidental Death of An Anarchist 13

Many moons ago, when the giants ruled the earth. From far flung Fazakerley, to the depths of Aigburth. Who wouldn’t tremble or cow…er with fright? When “Fee Fi Fo Fum!” roared through the night. The villagers panicked and filled their trunks. Fled to the hills where they squatted with Monks. But Mary from the dairy could not fall to her knees. She had to stay with her son, to churn out the cheese. A hero was needed to end this dark war, And Jack and his cow Pat, drew the short straw. Valour and Victory must rain down on Jack, So bring ya’ brolly and a nice anorak! Climb on your platforms, scale the dizzy height, Bouffant your Bellbottoms and boogie all night! It’s contagious, outrageous, let it all hang out! ‘Cause this Giant adventure’s gonna twist & sprout!!!

EVERYMAN UPDATE Work is now well underway to create a beautiful, inspiring new incarnation of this much-loved and pioneering theatre. A stunning portrait wall is being created from the images of people from across Liverpool who attended open photography sessions earlier this year. The images of these ‘extraordinary’ people will be etched onto shutters that will form the front of the new Everyman. The Everyman Site, May 2012

With its trademark ‘thrust’ wrap-around auditorium, iconic red sign, basement Bistro and many new facilities, the whole building will be a vibrant, creative hub, by day and night. The builders are busy on site, with a 36m tower crane, and the first walls are starting to appear. You can follow progress via a webcam which is providing real-time footage and time-lapse pictures on our website at www. everymanplayhouse.com

22

The new building will be a wonderful thing. But that’s not the end of the story. Inside it we’ll be able to involve more young people, foster Liverpool’s extraordinary range of creative talent, and train and support the actors, writers, directors and craftspeople who will stimulate and delight us for decades to come. Now we need your help to raise the final piece of funding to make your beautiful new Everyman, and everything that happens inside it, the best it can be.

Everyone who supports the appeal will be listed on our website and in a special launch publication, and donors of £500 or more will have an opportunity to name a seat in the new theatre.

Here’s how you can play your part – Making a regular gift, monthly or annually for a minimum of two years – Making a single donation – Naming or dedicating a seat in the new Everyman

Young Everyman Playhouse

Theatre for Everyone

YEP is aimed at young people aged 11 to 25. YEP will be the writers and actors, the technicians, the audiences and the cultural leaders of the future.

We believe everyone, no matter what their age or experience, should have the opportunity to enjoy great theatre. Look out for the following symbols on show pages and in the diary at the back. Accessible Performances

Audio description is a live verbal commentary giving information on the visual elements of a production as it unfolds. It’s great for anyone who sometimes finds it difficult to see the details of a performance; you don’t have to be blind to make use of audio description. A description of the setting, costumes and a full touch tour of the set are also available before the performance starts. You don’t need experience or to have been to the theatre before, but if you want to give something a try, then YEP is for you. “I never thought doors would actually open for me and they have. Can’t begin to explain how amazing it feels #YEP” YEP Member, via Twitter “That it was devised by the Young Everyman Playhouse members with lighting and sound by the Young Technicians, makes this even more impressive.” Liverpool Post on Intimate 26

YEP Offers – £5 tickets to see shows – Regular info on all the activities for young people – Opportunities to work on projects as a Young Actor, Writer, Technician, Programmer, Communicator or Director – The chance to help shape the future of the theatres – Guidance on careers in theatre – A chance to meet new people and try new things

Captioning is similar to television subtitling and converts the spoken word into text, which is displayed on a caption unit situated on or next to the stage. The captions also include the name of the character who is speaking or singing and descriptions of any sound effects. Captioning is a great way for anyone who sometimes finds it difficult to hear the actors speaking to still enjoy coming to the theatre. BSL British Sign Language Interpreted performance.

To find out more, visit www.everymanplayhouse.com/YEP Or email YEP@everymanplayhouse. 27
