Twelfth Night A Horsecross Arts production

by William Shakespeare directed by Rachel O’Riordan music by Conor Mitchell

Fri 30 Sep – Sat 15 Oct preview Thu 29 Sep 7.45pm, Sat matinees 2.30pm

Love is in the air and everything is at sea in Shakespeare’s romantic comedy of confusion and excess. Shipwrecked Viola, believing her twin brother drowned and her fortunes lost, disguises herself as a man to make her way on this strange shore. She soon enters the service of the lovestruck Count Orsino and is dispatched to win the heart of the beautiful Olivia for her new master. Before long the land where she has washed up is proving no less tempestuous than the sea she escaped as she unwittingly begins a tangle of confused desires and mistaken identity. Lords Belch and Aguecheek bring cakes, ale, revelry and mischief to the party and soon even the redoubtable servant Malvolio is wearing yellow stockings, a foolish grin and hoping that love will thrust greatness upon him. Swept along on waves of passion and grief, virtue, lust, ambition and grace, these are some of Shakespeare’s most memorable characters caught up in a breath-taking tale that seizes the imagination and stays with you forever.

Men Should Weep Horsecross Arts presents a National Theatre of Scotland production

by Ena Lamont Stewart

directed by Graham McLaren

Tue 15 – Sat 26 Nov

7.45pm, Sat matinees 2.30pm Set amid the grinding poverty of Glasgow's tenements in the 1930s, Men Should Weep has long been a favourite with audiences. Following the misfortunes of the Morrison family, Ena Lamont Stewart’s landmark play is a searing depiction of the hand to mouth poverty that working class people lived in at that time. At the centre of the story is Maggie, the care-worn matriarch. Supported and hindered in equal measure by a network of neighbours and family – from whom it is impossible to keep any secrets – she does her very best in the worst of circumstances, always putting herself last. By turns laugh out loud funny, at times tragic, but always thought provoking, Men Should Weep was remarkably ahead of its time when written in 1947. This major new production by the National Theatre of Scotland will introduce this much–loved work to a new generation of theatregoers and remind those who have seen it before why it has become universally hailed as a contemporary Scottish classic. “Ena Lamont Stewart's remarkable play... a landmark in British drama.” Michael Billington, The Guardian post show talk: Tue 22 Nov audio described performance: Thu 24 Nov, 7.35pm

Someone Who’ll Watch Over Me A Horsecross Arts production

by Frank McGuinness

directed by Rachel O’Riordan

Fri 10 – Sat 25 Feb preview Thu 9 Feb

7.45pm, Sat matinees 2.30pm

In a dark room in Beirut three hostages, an Irishman, an Englishman and an American, are kept chained. They do not know why they have been captured, how many days have passed or if they are waiting for death or release. Together, in their imaginations, in their friendships, small escapes are found. They write letters to those left behind, recreate favourite films, re-live Virginia Wade’s 1977 Wimbledon triumph. They hold on desperately to their laughter, their differences, their prejudice and the love that keeps them alive. Frank McGuinness looks into darkness and finds a magical flame of human warmth in this brilliant and beautiful work of pure, storytelling theatre which proved a hit both in the West End and on Broadway. The play is dedicated to Brian Keenan who with his fellow captives, John McCarthy and Terry Anderson, was taken hostage in Beirut by fundamentalist Shi’ite militiamen. This is not their story, but it is a powerful testament to their strength of spirit.

“it's startling how much McGuinness crams into this little room concerning how we cope with terror and death and each other” Kate Bassett, The Observer post show talk: Tue 21 Feb audio description: Thu 23 Feb, 7.35pm

“We’re at their mercy” “We’re at our own”


“The digestive juices get mixed up with the creative ones – it’s a scientific fact”


Moonlight & Magnolias A Horsecross Arts production

by Ron Hutchinson

directed by Rachel O’Riordan

Fri 16 – Sat 31 Mar preview Thu 15 Mar 7.45pm, Sat matinees 2.30pm

David O. Selznick is a movie mogul with a problem. He is three weeks into shooting Gone with the Wind and he hates it. He shuts down production and fires his director. The bills are mounting, his reputation is on the line, Vivien Leigh is trying to leave the country, and now his co–producer and father-in-law Louis B. Mayer is on the phone... Desperate, he pulls director Victor Fleming off the set of The Wizard of Oz and calls in Ben Hecht, script doctor extraordinaire – the only man in Hollywood who can write a new screenplay in five days… also probably the only man left in Hollywood who has never read the epic novel they are trying to film! Locking everyone into his office with only peanuts and bananas for sustenance, a madcap marathon of creativity begins. Based on the alarming true story of the making of the first ever blockbuster, this genuinely hilarious comedy captures the chaotic birth of a true movie classic from the golden age of cinema. For lovers of Gone with the Wind, this affectionate look behind the creative scenes is unmissable fun. If you have never seen the film, this terrific caper offers a riotously funny introduction to the biggest Hollywood blockbuster of all time.

“Ron Hutchinson’s fast, sharp and funny play catches the heart-stopping uncertainty principle of the Hollywood system” Domenic Cavendish, The Telegraph post show talk: Tue 27 Mar audio description: Thu 29 Mar, 7.35pm

Lyric Theatre Belfast presents

The Absence of Women

by Owen McCafferty, directed by Rachel O'Riordan

Tue 6 – Thu 8 Sep: 7.45pm Gerry and Iggy, two labourers from Belfast face the end of their lives in a London hostel talking of the present and thinking of the past. They argue about who has the biggest liver, the names of tube stations and whether they should go back to Belfast or not. But where are the women in their lives? The Absence of Women is a funny and poignant play about the life journey of two ordinary and lonely Belfast men and how one man’s choice, in one instant, can alter the path of his life forever. McCafferty has been described as the first truly great playwright of Northern Ireland, going beyond the clichés of political writing to document the lives of ordinary men and women of his native town. “a perfectly formed mini–masterpiece” Culture NI £16.50, £10.50; concessions £14.50 (includes booking fee) Subscribers: £12.60

Doorways in Drumorty by Mike Gibb

Wed 14 Sep: 7.45pm Set in the North East of Scotland, Doorways in Drumorty is inspired by and based on the writings of Lorna Moon, the lass from Strichen who became the highest paid Hollywood screenwriter of her era. During the later part of her life Lorna wrote a series of short stories, subsequently published as “Doorways In Drumorty”, which caused controversy in her native Aberdeenshire with many of the locals recognising themselves amongst the thinly disguised characters. The play interweaves several of these stories, both amusing and poignant, into a work that is warm, charming and humorous and that captures the mood of the rural North East in the 1920’s, an era when the chief currency was gossip! £14.50, £10.50; concessions £12.50 (includes booking fee) Subscribers: £10.80

7.45pm, Sat matinee 2.30pm In 1962, in the heart of the South Yorkshire coalfields, the Edlington Colliery’s six-man Glee Club choir group are preparing for their Gala performance. But Philip, the Musical Director, has got a problem. Bant’s wife has run off with the tea delivery man. Walt is trying to get over losing his. Scobie can’t get a word in edgeways at home; Colin wants to be a rock star; and Jack has romantic ideas above his station. With the Gala only weeks away, music seems to be the last thing on anyone’s mind, and that’s before a revelation that will change everything… Combining raucous wit and spellbinding close-harmony singing, Richard Cameron’s celebrated hit is as insightful as it is hilarious. Prepare to have your heartstrings tugged! audio described performance Sat 29 Oct, time 2.20pm Tue–Thu + Sat matinee £17.50, £10.50; concessions £15 Fri + Sat £19, £10.50; concessions £16.50 (includes booking fee) Subscribers: Tue–Thu + Sat matinee £13.05 Fri + Sat £14.40

Calum’s Road a new play by David Harrower based on the novel by Roger Hutchinson

Wed 2 Nov: 7.45pm The extraordinary story of one man’s devotion to a visionary project, Calum’s Road is centered around the life of Calum MacLeod, who spent twenty years building a road with his own hands. Set on the Hebridean island of Raasay, the story is one of triumph over bureaucratic and physical adversity. The play is based on MacLeod’s own copious letters to the Stornoway Gazette, on newspaper articles and a book by Roger Hutchinson. Gerry Mulgrew (Tam O’Shanter, The Government Inspector) directs this inspirational, magical story of a man, his island and their histories. “An incredible testament to one man’s determination not to fold against a far-off bureaucracy.” Sunday Herald £16.50, £10.50; concessions £14.50 (includes booking fee) Subscribers: £12.60

Theatre Tours international presents

Shylock

written and directed by Gareth Armstong performed by Guy Masterson

Fri 4 Nov: 7.45pm Villain...? Victim...? Or is Shylock someone even more intriguing? Guy Masterson’s Shylock reveals the tragic, tempestuous and often unbelievable life of fiction's most famous Jew. This dazzling, moving yet extremely comedic play is a fascinating exploration of Shylock, Shakespeare and Judaism through the ages that brings Shakespeare to life, history to the forefront and magic to the stage! In a delightfully comic, yet deeply moving performance celebrating the richness of Shakespeare's language Guy Masterson, world renowned solo-performer, (Under Milk Wood, Animal Farm) confronts and confounds the stereotypes. “Shylock deserves to be packed out every show. It reflects the deepest love and understanding of Shakespeare's genius, and mixes us adeptly into the problems, pressures, traditions, censors’ prejudices and passions of Elizabethan theatre.” The Scotsman “Innovative, delightful, exceptional!” The Independent £14.50, £10.50; concessions £12.50 (includes booking fee) Subscribers: £10.80

“If the interior was beautiful by day, it was absolutely gorgeous by night... a theatrical gem of its kind�

This image, from our design partners Richard Murphy Architects, shows one of the new facades for the planned theatre redevelopment, but the real changes will all be happening inside... A full conservation of our B listed auditorium including restoring the upper circle and orchestra pit and improving seating, ventilation and comfort. A new, modern extension that will provide three new creative learning spaces for Horsecross Arts' education and community activities and a new home for Perth Youth Theatre.

A complete redesign of foyer spaces to allow ease of access and circulation for all, with new street level entrances including onto Mill Street. A brand new 225 capacity performance space designed for more intimate, small scale music and drama, as well as work for young people and families and low cost community hire.

Company Chordelia presents

Miranda

directed and choreographed by Kally Lloyd–Jones

Fri 11 Nov: 7.45pm Highly acclaimed for bringing real drama to the world of dance with their last show Les Amoureux, Company Chordelia are back with an exciting new psychological thriller told through dance, music and theatre. Miranda, spoilt, innocent, and weary of her cloistered life of dinner parties and deceit, finds herself alone in a cold snowy landscape. White, silence, breath. She enters an empty well-lit house and slowly she realises she is not quite alone... “Absolutely fabulous!! My first experience of dance enthralling, loved it.” “Wow! Fantastic show, mesmerising performance” audience members on Miranda £14.50, £10.50; concessions £12.50 (includes booking fee) Subscribers: £10.80

Toujours l’Amour starring Leslie Mackie

Sat 12 Nov: 7.45pm Toujours l’Amour returns to Perth by popular demand after last year's sell–out performances. The story of Edith Piaf’s life is reflected in the songs she sang; songs about the ecstasy and the despair of love. And no one was better qualified on that subject than she was – her turbulent love-affairs were the talk of Paris society. Toujours l’Amour tells the story of Piaf’s life and loves in words as well as music including such well–known titles as La Vie En Rose, Hymne l’Amour, Les Trois Cloches and Non, Je Ne Regrette Rien, as well as many other familiar melodies, all sung in their original French. £14.50, £10.50; concessions £12.50 (includes booking fee) Subscribers: £10.80

Arthur

The Story of a King. The legend returns!

Sat 10 Sep: 7pm “Not since Monty Python has King Arthur been this much fun. Absolutely top class theatre, whatever age you are.” The Sunday Herald Who was King Arthur? A real King, or just a legend? The truth is no–one really knows. One fact that is true, however, is that the fantastical tale of King Arthur, the hero warrior, is one of the great stories of the world. Steeped in chivalry and romance, it is an epic story of a King and his exploits, involving magic and magicians in an age where good conquered evil. The multi award–winning Arthur, the Story of a King encapsulates Wee Stories’ love of literature, high comedy, visual games and imaginative stagecraft. £10.50; concessions £6.50 (includes booking fee) Ages 6+
