Forest Forge return to Blastburn with a shadowy but uplifting family adventure by one of Britain’s best-loved children’s authors. Suitable for children aged 5+ FEMALE GOTHIC An artist, gripped by the clutching fingers of a dead past; a scientist, defying nature in the dark realm of the senses; an expectant father, driven mad by creeping shadows… In the unquiet, stygian darkness between life and death, a lone, haunted woman tells chilling tales of the macabre and terrifying, illuminating the curious frailties of human nature… The Victorian fascination with tales of mystery and the supernatural created an enduring legacy of Gothic fiction; but it is often the male writers that we remember. Many thrilling and eerie stories from the great female writers of that era have gathered dust and been forgotten. Until now. Adapted and performed by Rebecca Vaughan (Austen’s Women, I, Elizabeth, The Diaries of Adam and Eve). Directed by Olivier Award Winner, Guy Masterson (Morecambe). 11 Thursday 31 January, 7pm £8, £7.20 concessions, £6.80 members (M) THEATRE Friday 15th February, 8pm £12.50, £11.25 concessions, £10.65 members BOX OFFICE: 023 9247 2700 | THESPRING.CO.UK THEATRE #### Bench Theatre present LipService present IRON Rona Munro’s precisely worded, emotionally loaded drama was premiered in Edinburgh at the Traverse Theatre in 2002 and performed at the Royal Court Theatre, London in 2003. The drama starts with the first visit by Josie to her mother, Fay, who has served 15 years of a life sentence for killing Josie’s father. Josie has no memory of the first eleven years of her life. Fay longs to live vicariously through her daughter without confronting the moment of her crime. ‘Iron’ gradually but relentlessly draws its audience into a psychologically gripping mother-daughter relationship set within the claustrophobic world of prison life. Like all of the best drama, ‘Iron’ resonates and will stay with the audience long after they have left the theatre. INSPECTOR NORSE (OR THE GIRL WITH TWO SCREWS LEFT OVER) A self-assembly Swedish crime thriller from award-winning comedy duo LipService that will leave you in stitches!

But faced with ‘a piece of the good life’ the reality is no picnic, with plummeting temperatures, technical disaster and virtually no practical skill ALASKA is a story of one man's carefree, joyous journey which becomes a nightmarish plunge into extreme survival. Boldly following in the footsteps of Bear Grylls and Ray Mears, through a whole host of forest wildlife, film, firelight, shadows and one hell of a soundtrack, this riot of tragic-comedy / Pythonesque dottiness, is guaranteed to have you spellbound. THE HOUND OF THE BASKERVILLES Darkest Devon… A misty moor with a towering tor; a horrible hell-hound howling hellishly! Baskerville Hall; Sir Hugo’s fall! Sir Charles chomped! Sir Henry haunted! Sherlock solves; Watson wonders; resolution reached! And they hall live happily hever hafter.* After the success of their ‘Complete Works of William Shakespeare’ (Abridged) and their award-winning ‘The 39 Steps’, HumDrum bring you another small-scale comic masterpiece with Peepolykus’s ‘wonderfully barking spoof’ of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s most famous work. Forget Rathbone! Forget Brett! Forget them all! We promise you – you’ll never forget this… *OK. Point stretched. We accept this. Forest Forge Theatre Company present THE BOY AT THE EDGE OF THE ROOM “He was not like other boys… He did not see the world through the same eyes as us.” Tony struggles to fit in. He has a different way of looking at the world. Those surrounding him have little patience for his dreams, with the exception of his mother who will do anything to ensure his happiness. But when Tony is offered a lifechanging chance, his mother must face a future without him, and the audience is forced to confront a moving ending. This beautiful fairytale for adults is inspired by Lucy Clifford’s 1882 story Wooden Tony. It focuses on a boy who displays many classic traits of the autistic spectrum, examining difference and acceptance through song, movement and puppetry.

Young Charles Dickens is reporting for The Morning Chronicle when he accidently stumbles on a story that could make his reputation. Expect a world of pockmarked pickpockets, cobwebby convicts, teeming slums and empty marshes, dark secrets and convoluted plots, and lots and lots of fog… This inventive comedy features just three actors playing over 20 roles in 80 minutes of fastpaced fun. Brimming with unfeasibly quick costume changes, stupidly surreal characters and wonderfully daft jokes, it is the most absurd contribution to the Dickens bicentenary you could hope to see. ABSENT FRIENDS By Alan Ayckbourn It’s always good to see old friends – isn’t it? All Diana wants to do is to console the recently bereaved Colin with a gathering of old friends and a nice cup of tea. But the reunion succeeds only in pouring salt into wounds, and what a shame Gordon couldn't come, being so poorly. Ayckbourn treats this roadcrash of a party with a typical sureness of touch – it is at times sad and touching, but always bitingly funny. At least Colin seems to be enjoying his bereavement. Bench are an award-winning amateur theatre group. THE TRENCH The award-winning team behind The Terrible Infants present a play inspired by the story of a miner who became entombed in a tunnel during WW1. As the horror engulfs him, not everything in the darkness is what it seems when he discovers a strange world beneath the mud and death.

Upon realising their misunderstanding they decide to present a magic lantern show, demonstrating survival tips for a trip to the London extravaganza.

In this exhibition she explores the graphic intricacies of line, light, pattern and mystery to be found within our native trees and woodlands through a series of large monochrome photo-etchings and digital installation. TEXT IN TEXTILES TIDEMARK TIME By Group 31 In the Sadler Gallery 16 January – 22 April Private View: Tues 22 Jan, 7pm This exhibition, inspired by the sea, presents unusual ways to experience and connect with the sea via striking visual impressions using found objects, paintings, collage, photography and sculpture. Group 31 are affiliated through friendship and a shared passion for art and are Rachel Stockholm, Jenny Grant, Eve Maple, Liz Osbourne, Lance Yeomans, Clare Redgrove, Jules and Tim Simmons. By Alison Stewart In the Sadler Gallery 27 April – 30 July Private View: Tues 30 April, 7pm Alison’s textile maps explore visual systems of communication; investigating signs as a means of removing textual barriers. She personalises her maps by mixing the modern with the historical, including inaccuracies and personal impressions that represent the cultural diversity of modern society. CAPTURING THE EPHEMERAL WILLIAM GRANT’S HAVANT In the Mezzanine Gallery 12 January – 27 March Born in 1893, William Grant began painting in earnest in his late teens and carried on for over half a century, during which time he captured images of Havant and the surrounding area and its people. His favourite medium was watercolour but this didn’t prevent him from capturing strength of character in his sitters, nor indeed the vivid colours of the summer gardens and landscape surrounding the town he loved. By Bobby Bale In the Mezzanine Gallery 21 May – 27 June 39 AARON BENNETT In the Mezzanine Gallery 1 April – 15 May Based on the local history trail around Havant and referencing the beginning of photography with the use of daguerreotype wet plate images, Aaron wants to try to replicate a moment in time. The images are photographed using up to date digital cameras, but the post production photo manipulation creates a texture which harks back to the wet plate image which was very fashionable at the turn of the 20th century. Meet the Artist: Sat 8 June, 2pm – 4pm (incl. refreshments and poetry reading) Bobbie’s paintings express the feeling in a fragment of space and time. She is inspired by moments in a garden, mist, stillness, grass, cobwebs, fading light, mud and brambles. Through her paintings she makes pathways in memory to hold and preserve a transient sensation. EXHIBITIONS BOX OFFICE: 023 9247 2700 | THESPRING.CO.UK EXHIBITIONS #### IN THE CABINETS CAROL DILLEY 9 January – 26 March Quite extraordinary pottery leaves exquisitely made – why not treat yourself to an original and beautiful gift. LOCAL COLLECTIONS STAMPS AND THEATRE JOHN FORSTER 10 January – 28th March Like many children, John was introduced to stamps at about the age of seven. After many years of collecting stamps from all over the world, he eventually discovered First Day Covers. He collects British Limited Edition Covers, preferably with fewer than 100 being produced but up to 500 are acceptable. His ‘speciality’ is the collection of Autographed First Day Covers, featuring actors and actresses. Some have been bought from stamp fairs, dealers and online, but he prefers to send the covers to the theatres and hope they will be returned duly signed by the celebrities concerned. KEN BRIFFETT 3 April – 29 May Hand selected local wood is turned and shaped in exploration of the positive and negative. The wood that is taken away to create the negative shape is as important as the final piece. 40 BEADWORK BEAUTIES SIAN NOLAN 4 April – 31 July This eclectic collection of beadwork has been created over a number of years and is a mix of Sian’s own designs and other Bead Artists she admires. Many of the 3D pieces have been made following Japanese instructions, a style and culture Sian has an interest in. Sian does not sell her work as she can’t bear to part with it! Some items can take weeks or even months to complete and each piece feels very ‘personal’. SERENA PARTRIDGE 4 June – 31 August Serena makes accessories and garments inspired by a passion for European costume dating back over 600 years. Her work is not constrained by historical accuracy but is distorted to create a curiosity that mocks frivolity and the futility of life à la mode. EXHIBITIONS I WONDER WHAT THAT IS? 1 August – 30 September Items donated to The Spring by the local community. Come along and work out what they are and who gave them to us.
