welcome to 2010 at Arcola Theatre!

Arcola Theatre in association with KP Productions presents the British premiere of

innocence

15 productions; 8 international writers; 6 world premieres; 6 British premieres; 3 reintroductions to lesser seen works by major names – there’s a lot to choose from this season and most you’ll not want to miss.

by Dea Loher

Translated by David Tushingham Directed by Helena Kaut-Howson

From the UK to the US, Ireland to South Africa, Europe to our local artists in Dalston, we’ve travelled the globe to discover those writers that rarely find a home in London but more than deserve to do so. Emerging talent is given the opportunity to work with established artists, and Arcola continues its tradition of giving audiences the opportunity for a close encounter with some of the UK’s finest actors.

Cast Ann Mitchell as Frau Zucker, Miranda Cook, Michael Fitzgerald, Alexander Gilmour, Chris Hannon, Caroline Kilpatrick, Meredith MacNeill, Nathaniel Martello-White, Okezie Morro, Ellen Sheean and Maggie Steed

Alongside these professional productions there’s an opportunity for all, of any age, to take their place on the Arcola stage through a growing range of participatory classes and workshops, running throughout the week. Finally, we’re consolidating our commitment to sustainability. From the growing popularity of our monthly Green Sundays to innovative partnerships with local groups and international businesses – Arcola continues to be a benchmark for developing art that works positively with the environment. We hope you’ll join us this season and keep in touch as plans grow to celebrate our 10th anniversary, coming soon.

Mehmet Ergen Artistic Director ‘If I worked in a petrol station, all it would take is one cigarette to blow everything sky high…But at home I don’t even have gas. Where am I supposed to begin?’

Two illegal dock workers witness a woman drowning. Afraid of involving the police, they do not save her. Guilty or innocent? A nocturnal city teams with social rejects, lost and disaffected human beings: an undertaker; a blind pole dancer; an embittered philosopher; the mother of a serial killer. Loosely connected stories from the edge of society mysteriously interweave to create a lyrical and darkly comic passion play for our times. Disturbing, poignant but ultimately hopeful, Innocence asks unanswerable questions about conscience and compassion in a disfigured world. Dea Loher is Germany’s leading and most provocative playwright, noted for her original style and uncompromising picture of contemporary life. Internationally acclaimed director Helena Kaut-Howson brings this UK premiere to the Arcola stage with a stellar ensemble cast.

Innocence is supported by the Goethe Institute London

the sanctuary lamp

heldenplatz by Thomas Bernhard Translated by Meredith Oakes and Andrea Tierney Directed by Annie Castledine and Annabel Arden Cast Hannah Boyde, Paul Brightwell, Daniel Curshen, Andrew Hawkins, Caroline Horton, Petra Markham, Barbara Marten, Jane Maud, Clive Mendus, Holly Strickland

Austria, 1988. For the Schuster family – intellectual, Jewish, Viennese to the core – the country remains as uninhabitable as it was when they fled in 1938. Forty years on from World War II, irrational hatred, neurosis and decadence still reign.

Heldenplatz is the last play from one of the most individual, innovatory and challenging voices from contemporary post-War Europe. This rare opportunity to see his work in Britain is created by legendary theatre directors Annie Castledine and Annabel Arden, with a leading cast of familiar faces from stage and screen.

‘the foremost craftsman of German prose after Kafka and Musil.’ George Steiner on Thomas Bernhard Heldenplatz is supported by the Austrian Cultural Forum

Three people locked in a Catholic Church for the night: An ex-circus strongman who prays to the Sanctuary Lamp for strength, a run-away waif haunted by her past and an Irish blackguard... Tom Murphy directs this revival of his own play for b*spoke theatre company. Described by the Guardian as one of Irish Theatre’s ‘proudest possessions’, Murphy has been a major influence on a generation of Irish theatre makers and his distinctive voice remains a major force in the contemporary repertory.

the roman bath Stanislav Stratiev by

in a version by Justin Butcher Directed by Russell Bolam

Directed by Jenny Lee

Ivan returns from a trip to the seaside to find his home torn apart. Builders have unearthed a lost treasure beneath his floorboards: an ornate bath dating back to Roman times. As the excavation destroys his flat, professors, businessman with dodgy Swiss connections, local councillors, reporters and even the national union of lifeguards set up camp. Everyone wants to claim the discovery – while all Ivan wants is some peace.

A ferociously paced satire about where the little man stands, and sleeps, The Roman Bath is a contemporary classic by Bulgaria’s great comic writer Stanislav Stratiev. Image © Idil Sukan

A thrilling take on the run up to the Berlin Olympics in 1936, seen through the eyes of American journalist William Shirer. The stakes were high, the game played out on the world stage. Hitler craved power and the German Jews were under threat. America was uneasy and the International Olympic Committee was dangerously out of touch…. It all rested on the few….. and the athletes, among them Jesse Owens. If America had pulled out, would WWII have taken place? A gripping piece of theatre with a cast of nine, playing out one of the most momentous occasions in world history.

‘multi-faceted piece of drama… outstanding debut’ Plays International The evening concludes with an excerpt from Leni Riefenstahl’s film Olympia and a discussion with Olympic Coach Tom McNab (author of best-seller Flanagan’s Run).

the road to mecca by Athol Fugard

Directed by Russell Bolam Starring Linda Bassett as Miss Helen

Box? No, no, no: it was a jar, and I had absolutely no idea what was in it. But curiosity was one of my gifts wasn’t it, so it’s Not My Fault. Found out too late it was chock full of all the rubbish they didn’t want in heaven: and that includes Hope you know.

‘This is diversity in the theatre at its best - reaching out across age, race, gender and class.’ The Guardian If you were given a jar and told never to open it, how long would it take you to unscrew the lid? Just a little peek … Five tales woven from real life stories. Local people, epic stories, universal themes. Developed through workshops with women from Haringey University of the Third Age and Year 9 students at Gladesmore Community School, this is part of Giants’ unique vision to combine the classics with the creative potential found in Britain’s diverse communities. Open the jar - you might find your own story.

Miss Helen has spent fifteen years transforming her house into a haven of light and colour against the desolate South African plains. But, following an accident, a darkness is setting in. The deeply religious community, who have always been offended by Miss Helen’s sculptures, refuse to help her in her time of need. When the local minister urges she move from her home to be cared for, an idealistic young friend is suspicious of his motives and fights for Miss Helen’s right to remain in her personal Mecca. Over one night, Miss Helen is forced to make a decision that will determine the rest of her life.

light shining in buckinghamshire

knives in hens by David Harrower Directed by Serdar Bilis Cast Phil Cheadle, Nathaniel Martello-White and Jodie McNee with live music performed by Maria Rijo

by Caryl Churchill Directed by Polly Findlay

In an imaginary, pre-industrial landscape, a profound and strange love triangle unfolds between a ploughman, his wife and a miller. A passionate and lyrical journey from ignorance and innocence to knowledge and power.

‘Fear, and the pit, and the snare are upon thee, O inhabitant of the earth’ Rising up against a tyrannical regime, a band of revolutionary soldiers have killed the King. Consumed by a burning religious passion, they are prepared to turn the country upside down in order to establish heaven on earth.

Knives in Hens was David Harrower's first play and established him as one of Scotland's foremost living writers.

This is the story of a lost generation, struggling to survive in the wake of one of the bloodiest wars England has ever seen. With their families torn apart, and the legality of the conflict called into question, they are fighting to make sense of an uncertain world.

‘one of the most remarkable and moving debuts’ The Guardian

Sinking under the weight of caring for Rosie, their Down’s Syndrome daughter, Marion and Ted walk out of her life and into the sea. Marion alone survives and is left floundering as she tries to pick up the pieces of life with Rosie.

Directed by Chris Hill

Bev Hancock’s brave and touching play explores the relationship between mother and daughter, carer and cared for and leaves us asking who is really looking after who?

Stitch is hitting the gay scene of Hull. Or at least dipping his toe in the water while staying with heavily pregnant sister Liz and her shabby sofa loving partner Mark. But why won’t Stitch let anyone into the bathroom even though Liz is dying for a pee? And who is the man in the giant penguin costume? A comedy of knitting, penguins and Battenberg cake from the company that brought you Company Along The Mile. ‘Wells exercises impressive command over a surreal situation… given the choice I personally would pick up the penguin.’ The Guardian

sustainability

arcola café bar

Arcola Theatre is committed to sustainability in the arts. From our monthly Green Sundays with activities for all the family to unique collaborations with engineers pioneering new forms of energy, we’re continually seeking positive ways to produce great theatre that limits any damage to the planet.

Open seven days a week from 10am until late, Arcola’s Café Bar is a place to relax, meet friends and enjoy some delicious food and drink.

Arcola Energy – our commitment at work Arcola Energy was established in 2007 to promote innovation in sustainability through the arts. Unlike any other arts organisation in the UK, we’ve acknowledged the importance of this area of work by making it one of our three core strands of activity:

• Professional Theatre • Youth and Community Arts • Environmental Sustainability

We have a tasty selection of homemade food and cakes using fresh locally-sourced ingredients to go with a range of organic and fair-trade wines, soft drinks, teas and coffees. Whether for morning coffee, lunch, a pre-show bite or late night drink… join us!

Sustainability is integrated into everything we do, led by a core team including Ben our Executive Director, Rachel our Sustainability Projects Manager, Matt our Associate Technologist and our talented interns.

get involved

We are always happy to discuss ways in which we can work with local communities on sustainability whether through holding workshops for school children to learn about sustainable energy or working with partners to deliver a range of activities, for example putting on events in the Dalston Eco Garden which opens in 2010.

Arcola is indebted to its dedicated volunteers and interns. Could you be one of them?
