THE DRESSER BY R O N A L D H A R W O O D

Ronald Harwood’s evocative, affectionate and hilarious portrait of backstage life is one of the most acclaimed dramas of modern theatre, which has been nominated for five Academy Awards, including Best Screenplay.

It is 1942 and in a war-torn provincial theatre an ageing actor manager, known to his loyal acting company as Sir, is struggling to cling on to his sanity and complete his two hundred and twenty seventh performance of King Lear. It is down to Norman, Sir’s devoted dresser, to ensure that in spite of everything, the show goes on. For sixteen years Norman has been there to fix Sir’s wig, massage his ego, remind him of his opening lines and provide the sound effects in the storm scene.

Norman will be played by one of the UK’s most unique and best loved entertainers Julian Clary. His successes include television, radio, films, writing and stand-up comedy, which he has performed all over the world. His West End starring roles range from London Palladium pantomimes to Taboo. Playing Sir will be Matthew Kelly, winner of an Olivier Award for Of Mice and Men. His other West End credits include Waiting For Godot with Ian McKellen, Comedians and Troilus and Cressida. His many television credits include the awardwinning thriller Cold Blood, Benidorm, Bleak House and Moving On.

Noël Coward’s gloriously entertaining Private Lives is the inaugural show from The Nigel Havers Theatre Company, which will be touring the country with a wonderful line-up of theatrical gems. Noël Coward’s dazzling comic masterpiece is both a scintillatingly witty and scathingly vitriolic study of the rich and reckless in love.

Elyot and Amanda, who were once married to each other, find themselves on honeymoon with their new partners, in the same hotel on the French Riviera, admiring the view from adjoining balconies. Their initial horror quickly evaporates and they are soon sharing cocktails. Who knows what the future holds for them now. The Olivier Award-winning Patricia Hodge, one of the country’s most loved actresses, plays Amanda. Nigel Havers, ever suave and thoroughly charming, plays Elyot, the role taken by Noël Coward himself in the original production in 1930.

SWAN LAKE THE NUTCRACKER

By special arrangement with Elephant Eye Theatrical ‘THE ADDAMS FAMILY’ is presented through special arrangement with and all authorised performance materials are supplied by Theatrical Rights Worldwide (TRW), 122-124 Regent Street, 5th floor, London W1B 5SA. www.theatricalrights.co.uk

Moscow City Ballet returns with two of Tchaikovsky’s best-loved ballets, presented in MCB Hero classic image 85.5x62.indd 1 23/06/2021 Russian style. Swan Lake is an eternal favourite; the epic story of Prince Siegfried and his doomed love for Odette, magnificently brought to life in all its original splendour. The Nutcracker is the perfect family treat; you’ll be enchanted by the tale of Clara and her Nutcracker Prince, as he battles the Mouse King and whisks her off on a magical adventure.

BROS Theatre Company presents The Addams Family: a fabulous, whacky musical comedy 12:53 with toe-tapping numbers, plenty of laughs and glorious, larger than life characters. In their world, to be sad is to be happy, to feel pain is to feel joy, and death and suffering are the stuff of dreams. But when the rather traditional Beineke family are invited to dinner, the Addams’ world is turned upside down, in one fateful, hilarious night. A fun-filled musical that’s the perfect antidote to those dark January nights! Ages 8+ Originally produced on Broadway by Stuart Oken, Roy Furman, Michael Leavitt, Five Cent Productions, Stephen Schuler, Decca Theatricals, Scott M. Delman, Stuart Ditsky, Terry Allen Kramer, Stephanie P. McClelland, James L.
