The Theatre 12 September ~ 20 October THE COUNTRY WIFE by William Wycherley Directed by Polly Findlay In the gossip-fuelled London of the 17th Century Harry Horner has started a brilliantly calculated rumour, and soon every husband in London believes he is impotent. Armed with this ingenious alibi Harry is free to charm his way into the hearts and boudoirs of every `respectable' wife in society. When Jack Pinchwife arrives in London the battle is on to keep his innocent `country wife' from the clutches of Harry Horner. But how innocent is Margery? Intrigue, sex and seduction kept this subversive comedy from the stage for 200 years. See it brought to sparkling life by Olivier Award-winning director Polly Findlay, whose recent productions include GOOD at the Royal Exchange and ANTIGONE at the National Theatre. INTRODUCING...

She was 20 years old, had just passed her A-Levels and was working out what to do with her life. She was killed because she dressed differently. BLACK ROSES is an elegy for Sophie in which she tells her own story through a series of poems by the award-winning poet Simon Armitage, alongside the words of her mother, Sylvia Lancaster. The piece provoked an unprecedented response when it premiered on Radio Four last year. Now it has been re-imagined for the theatre with Rachel Austin and Julie Hesmondhalgh (CORONATION STREET). The production supports the ongoing work of the Sophie Lancaster Foundation, which promotes respect and understanding of subcultures in our communities. In the American Deep South, Lady Torrance is trapped in a loveless marriage and a small town. When a charismatic drifter arrives with a snakeskin jacket and a guitar the narrow-minded community is soon in uproar. Lady's long-forgotten passions are reignited, but will love and freedom be allowed to triumph? Imogen Stubbs stars in this major revival of Tennessee Willliam's classic drama about the power of imagination and love in the face of conformity. Presented by special arrangement with the University of the South, Sewanee, Tennessee. WRITE BACK Tuesday 6 November 7.30pm LIGHT AND SHADOW "We live in a world of � light and shadow ... and it's confusing" A collaboration with Wilma Theater in Philadelphia. On the night of the US Presidential Election, six unique voices from the UK and US explore the resonant themes in ORPHEUS DESCENDING: liberty and freedom, passion of the individual imagination against conformity and community pressure, and what it means to be "American".
