DRAMA

LOVEDAY HOUSE PLAY

The Dog It Was That Died by Tom Stoppard

Tuesday 5th to Thursday 7th February Vivian Cox Theatre at 7.30 pm (tickets required; no charge) After a spy tries to commit suicide by jumping from a bridge only to land on a dog and survive, another spy is dispatched to investigate. But all is not as it seems: scandals prove flimsy, and financial dealings more secure than they originally appeared.The spy is waylaid by an admiral and a matron, kicked by donkey and ends up sweeping everything under the carpet in this madcap adventure. Originally written for radio, Loveday and West House will be performing this play with a large chorus of actors recreating the atmospheric foley sound effects to bring out the humour in this fast-paced spooks comedy. There will be an interval between these plays from 8.30 - 8.45 pm

SOUTH HOUSE PLAY

Arsenic & Old Lace by Joseph Kesselring Directed by Ruth Frett, assisted by Bea Stephenson

Tuesday 5th to Thursday 7th February Vivian Cox Theatre at 8.45 pm (tickets required; no charge) Our story is set in Chelsea during the Second World War. All the action occurs in the living room of three charming elderly sisters, Abby, Ethel and Martha Brewster, who are renowned throughout the community as caring, selfless christian ladies who would be willing to do anything to help a poor soul in torment. In reality, their notion of helping the needy is somewhat bizarre, to the consternation of their rather pompous nephew, Mortimer. To round off this extraordinary family, there must be a mention of Arthur, another nephew who models himself on the Duke of Wellington no less, and frequently causes havoc among the neighbours with his nocturnal activities.


DRAMA

A modern adaptation of the classic Carolean play

SCHOOL PLAY

‘Tis Pity A modern adaptation of the classic Carolean play by John Ford

Tuesday 5th to Friday 8th March Speech Hall at 7.30 pm (tickets required; no charge) Set in Parma, this fast-moving play tells the unhappy love story of a brother and sister, and of those around them affected by their unnatural relationship.The production deals with themes familiar to the period - obsession, violence and corruption – but is by no means lacking in humour or variety of mood.The director’s own adaptation has attempted to do justice to the remarkable poetic language of Ford’s original play. Like many plays of the period, the production does contain some acts of violence and is perhaps not suitable for younger children. However it draws on two of Shakespeare’s most popular plays from the great age of the English Stage, “Romeo and Juliet” and “Othello”: so the play presents a thought-provoking as well as a gripping story.

LECTURE THE TOM AVERY SOCIETY LECTURE

‘Adventures in Antarctica’

By Richard Pattison Friday 8th February Academic Lecture Theatre at 8.30 pm Reception at 8.00 pm Tickets: £10 (£8 concessions) Richard Pattison is a former soldier who in addition to the typical modern day soldiering experiences has led a number of polar, sailing and other expeditions. These combined sailing, sledging and mountaineering with geographical and historical studies. He is an approved RGS speaker and past chairman of the Explore polar panel. In addition to the physical discoveries and challenges a recurring theme is his deep interest in how people respond to and benefit from this type of experience, an experience that he believes is an attitude of mind and can start immediately. Drawing on practical examples gained preparing for or on operations and expeditions and underpinned by a study of primarily Kurt Hahn’s vision and philosophies, he will couch his presentation in terms that make it directly relevant to anyone who wants to push themselves beyond their current imagined limits, whatever their ambition.
