Welcome

Welcome to the Lace Market Theatre’s 2019-20 season. To put this year’s programme together, we read hundreds of scripts and worked hard to try and find something for everyone. A number of the plays have premiered quite recently, and some have only just been released for amateur performance. So we hope you enjoy our selection of new and old, comedy and drama, with a couple of unusual pieces added to the mix. We very much appreciate your support. This year sees one notable anniversary. The very first play we presented at this theatre, back in January 1972, was Edward Albee’s ‘A Delicate Balance’ and so in October we’re doing another Albee play, ‘Three Tall Women’, to mark our 700th production at Halifax Place. It’s a Pulitzer prize-winning play described by the NY Times as ‘Albee’s imaginative leap into difficult souls … a comedy about decrepitude or a tragedy about survival, depending on how you look at it.’ We’re delighted to have been given the performing rights, not always readily awarded to amateur companies. With very many thanks to Jim Brooks, Chris Collins, Mark James and Paul Johnson for their time, commitment and invaluable help. Linda Croston and Jane Herring (Artistic Directors)

About Us

The Lace Market theatre is an independent theatre in Nottingham city centre, staging a varied programme of high-quality amateur productions throughout the year. You can find us in the historic Lace Market district, in a beautiful Georgian building dating back to 1760. Performances take place in our recently refurbished and air-conditional auditorium, and in our cosy upstairs studio where you can also find our licensed bar. Our theatre is staffed entirely by our unpaid members, and has a strong sense of community with nearly a hundred years of history behind us. We are a registered charity, with proceeds from ticket sales going to the costs of productions and upkeep. The theatre is twinned with Jakobus-Theater and Die Käuze, both in Karlsruhe, Germany. As part of our links with Karlsruhe, our members will perform two of our plays from this season, Nell Gwynn and A Servant of Two Masters, at these two theatres in April 2020. 2


The beast can be deadly

10-14 September 2019 The Studio Showtimes: Weekdays 19.30 Saturday 14.30 & 19.30

Directed by Chris Sims

FOXFINDER

by Dawn King

This field, this farm... this entire country is a battleground between the forces of civilisation and the forces of nature... Without man, the fox will rule. Contains violence and sexual themes. Artwork by Connor Hattamsworth. This amateur production is presented by arrangement with Nick Hern books.

England is in crisis: treacherous weather, failing crops, and communities divided by paranoia and superstition. The authoritarian government blames the country’s woes on a plague of foxes – malicious creatures with supernatural powers. On their remote farm, Samuel and Judith Covey are reeling from personal loss. Their failure to meet production targets prompts an official visit from the pious William Bloor, a young “foxfinder” seeking a possible infestation of the beasts. Tensions mount as William investigates the Coveys, their farm and neighbours, prying into their personal lives, looking for inconsistencies, symbols, and signs of collaboration. But William too has his weaknesses, and the scene is set for a disastrous collision. Dawn King’s dystopian drama debuted in 2011, scooping up playwriting awards and critical praise, and was brought to the West End in 2018. 3


Heart-wrenching. Life-affirming

24-28 September 2019

Every

BRILLIANT Thing

The Studio Showtimes: Weekdays 19.30 Saturday 14.30 & 19.30

Directed by Linda Croston & Jane Herring Audition: 30 July 2019

by Duncan Macmillan

with Jonny Donahoe

Sam suggested that I talk to someone. Professionally. That made me so angry. I knew what depression was and I knew I was fine.

This amateur production is presented by arrangement with Casarotto Ramsay & Associates Ltd.

You’re seven years old. Mum’s in hospital. Dad says she’s “done something stupid”. She finds it hard to be happy. You start a list of everything that’s brilliant about the world, everything worth living for – ice cream, water fights, staying up late to watch TV… You leave it on her pillow. You know she’s read it because she’s corrected your spelling. As years go by, you grow up, go off to university and fall in love. Perhaps your list of every brilliant thing might even help you. Duncan Macmillan’s unusual play, which debuted at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2014, invites the audience to lend their imaginations to the enterprise, as the narrator recounts his childhood experiences of his mother’s depression, and his adult life. This funny, uplifting piece confronts something tough – the realisation that we can’t always make those we love happy. 4

The

Mask of

Anarchy by Percy Bysshe Shelley

Last came anarchy: he rode On a white horse, splashed with blood; He was pale even to the lips, Like Death in the Apocalypse.

In August 1819, a political rally in Manchester drew a vast but peaceful crowd, demanding parliamentary reform, representation and economic relief. Authorities suppressed the meeting brutally with an armed cavalry charge. The Mask of Anarchy, written in response to the Peterloo Massacre, presents an allegorical vision of England and its people trampled and tormented by the forces of Anarchy, a skeletal tyrant king, and his henchmen Murder, Fraud and Hypocrisy. Unpublished during Shelley’s lifetime, it now stands as one of the greatest works of political poetry. Its rallying cry for dignified and non-violent resistance has inspired activists such as Gandhi, the Tiananmen Square protesters and the Arab Spring movement. We are marking the bicentennial anniversary of the massacre and the poem with a world first specially dramatised performance. 5


How do you become who you are?

14-19 October 2019 The Auditorium Showtimes: Weekdays 19.30 Saturday 14.30 & 19.30

Directed by Max Bromley

You take the breath in... you let it out. The first one you take in you’re upside down and they slap you into it. The last one... well, the last one you let it all out... and that’s it. Contains strong language and racist inferences.

This amateur production is presented by arrangement with Josef Weinberger Ltd.

Three Tall Women

by Edward Albee

One very old woman, autocratic, proud, as together as the ravages of time will allow. The second. Younger. Her carer. Dispassionate but not unsympathetic. The third. Considerably younger. Bright, confidant, but a little out of her depth. Edward Albee coming to terms with the relationship he had with his adoptive mother. A woman neither he, nor many of the people who met her, actually liked. But a play written without prejudice, objective without the distortive folly of ‘interpretation’. A 1994 Pulitzer prize-winning masterpiece which confirms his reputation as one of America’s leading playwrights. 6


Your word against mine

11-16 November 2019 The Auditorium Showtimes: Weekdays 19.30 Saturday 14.30 & 19.30

Directed by Jim Brooks Audition: 3 September 2019

Consent

by Nina Raine

The law’s not going to work according to your emotions because it’s got to be dispassionate, it’s got to be impersonal. It’s not about satisfying your personal sense of outrage.

Consent follows the lives and friendships of a group of London barristers. By day, they prosecute or defend crime suspects. Outside of work, they socialise and gossip together.

Contains strong language and themes of sexual violence.

Nina Raine’s fierce and complex drama – of trust, doubt, justice and forgiveness in the courtroom and the bedroom – debuted at the National Theatre in 2017.

This amateur production is presented by arrangement with Nick Hern books.

Edward and his wife Kitty are celebrating their new baby, while Jake’s marriage with Rachel is on rocky ground, and bachelor Tim is flirting with Zara, an actress. Things begin to sour when Ed and Tim represent opposing sides in a rape trial. The details of the case and the tensions surrounding it set off a chain reaction among the six friends, bringing old grievances and new accusations to the surface.

by Alan Ayckbourn

Now we don’t want to start Christmas like this, do we?

This amateur production is presented by arrangement with Samuel French Ltd.

The thing about Christmas is that people who may not actually like each other come together, and have to pretend to be full of benevolent yuletide cheer. Neville and his wife Belinda are the hosts, entertaining a former colleague of Neville’s and his heavily pregnant wife. Both marriages are unhappy – the husbands are bores and the wives feel unloved and neglected. Other guests include Neville’s alcoholic sister and her hopeless GP of a husband, who is preparing for his annual puppet show, along with Belinda’s virginal unmarried sister, and her new boyfriend. And then there’s Neville’s belligerent and bigoted Uncle Harvey… Alan Ayckbourn’s bitter and farcical comedy, dating from 1980, presents us with the forced merriment, crises, rows and tears of an unsuccessful Christmas. 8

Gareth McLean

Contains strong language and sexual themes. This amateur production appears by arrangement with Nick Hern books.

A century of queer history – in and out of the closet – comes to life through the voices of queer men and women, with touching moments of love, pride and hope. A working class lesbian subverts the social norms of 1920s London with her penchant for gentleman’s attire. A 1950s housewife’s comes to terms with her husband’s sexuality and lifestyle. A shy teenager protests outside parliament alongside other young gay men in 1994. And – back in the present day – a gay man prepares for his wedding speech. Queers was commissioned by the BBC to celebrate 50 years since the legalisation of homosexuality in Britain. Our production features four of the original eight monologues, which were televised in 2017 and later performed at the Old Vic. 9

The Lace Market Theatre is entirely run by our members volunteering in their free time – from the actors on stage and the backstage crew to the box office and bar staff. Below are some of the many ways you can contribute to our friendly theatre community.

CREATIVE CREW

PERFORMING

VVOLVED

If you have a passion for performing, the Lace Market Theatre is a great place to get on stage – whether you’ve been treading the boards for years or are curious about acting for the first time. We always welcome new talent at our auditions and you’ll be given the guidance and support you need as you rehearse your role and get ready to perform with us.

There’s a lot that goes into a successful show besides the performers, and each of our productions needs a dedicated team of creative and technical volunteers working behind the scenes to develop the look and feel of the play and make sure everything runs smoothly. These are some of the offstage roles you could get involved in, and we’ll provide all the training you need.

HOSPITALITY

Directing or assisting a director Stage managing or assisting backstage Set design, building and decoration Costumes – selecting or creating Props – sourcing and making Sound design and operation Lighting design and operation We provide a welcoming experience for our visitors, including a licensed bar and coffee bar, as well as managing ticket sales and ‘front of house’ duties on performance nights.

Acclaim on the stage and alarm in the court

Showtimes: Weekdays 19.30 Saturday 14.30 & 19.30

Directed by Dave Partridge Audition: 10 October 2019

by Jessica Swale

We won’t allow it. It is – unsuitable. The King has a nation to command. You are a distraction.

Contains strong language and sexual themes. This amateur production appears by arrangement with Nick Hern books with the original music by Nigel Hess.

London, 1660. After years of civil war and Puritan rule, England is ruled by a king once again – a king with a passion for the arts, fine living, theatre and women. The merry monarch’s latest infatuation is Nell Gwynn, a young girl from the brothels of Cheapside who has found fame as an actress on the London stage. As lover to the King, Nell must contend with the jealous rivalry of Charles’ other mistresses, the disapproval of his courtiers, the exasperation of her theatre colleagues and the pressures of life in the public gaze. Jessica Swale’s dazzling period comedy premiered aptly at London’s Globe Theatre in 2015. It paints a vivid portrait of the Restoration court and theatre, and of a woman with some very modern ideas about love, sex and status. 12

Masters by Carlo Goldoni

translated by Stephen Mulrine

Ye gods, what am I going to do? I’m in a fine mess now!

This amateur production appears by arrangement with Nick Hern books.

Betrothed couple Silvio and Clarice are devastated when Clarice’s former fiancé reappears, apparently back from the dead. There follows a high-spirited comedy in which things – and people – aren’t always what they seem. Lovers, servants, letters that go astray, mistaken identity, disguises and tricks all conspire to create havoc. And right in the middle of it all is the mischief-making Truffaldino – always hungry, always eager to make more money. Not content to be the servant of just one master, he agrees to work for another as well. But trying to juggle two jobs at the same time – while concealing his divided loyalties – just makes matters worse. In this eighteenth-century Venetian comedy, Goldoni gives depth of character to the stock archetypes of Italy’s commedia dell’arte tradition. 13

William Shakespeare

Directed by Sarah Ogando

All the world’s a stage, And all the men and women merely players; They have their exits and their entrances, And one man in his time plays many parts.

Artwork by Lois Stevens.

A family dispute has upset the government of a French province, with Duke Frederick taking control and banishing his older brother, the rightful Duke, from the duchy. Rosalind, the banished Duke’s daughter, stays behind as a companion to her cousin Celia, but soon Duke Frederick’s fickle temper forces them to flee the city too. Deep in the Forest of Arden, the banished Duke lives in exile with his loyal followers. Rosalind and Celia set out to find him, disguised as men and accompanied by their jester Touchstone. Elsewhere in the forest wanders the brave Orlando, another fugitive from the city, who is lovesick for Rosalind. This pastoral fantasy is among Shakespeare’s most beloved comedies, with a colourful cast of noble and rustic characters now brought to life by our Youth Theatre. 14


If you want to see a stage full of energy and bursting with young talent, crafted with as much care and attention to detail as the adult plays, the Youth Theatre show is definitely not to be missed.

How to

Disappear Completely and Never Be Found

Audition: 4 February 2020

What makes you who you are, Charlie? A name? An address? A random collection of experiences, a few memories? … Charlie Hunt is nothing more than a collection of pieces of paper. Contains strong language, smoking and scenes of drug abuse. This amateur production appears by arrangement with Nick Hern books.

by Fin Kennedy Marketing executive Charlie is suffering from the pressures of his stressful lifestyle: insomnia, drink and drug abuse, panic attacks, mounting debts, and the recent death of his mother. When he is caught trying to make some money disappear, Charlie pulls a disappearing act of his own – running from the office, leaving the city, abandoning his life and his identity. Before long he finds himself on a nightmarish journey through lost property offices, records offices, seafronts, graveyards and morgues – the places where the detritus of society, the unnamed and unclaimed, are lost and found. Fin Kennedy’s 2005 play was inspired by his research into missing persons cases. 16


Which is the merchant here and which is the Jew?

THE

MERCHANT by William Shakespeare

“

The devil can cite scripture for his own purpose.

Welcome to the fashionable, glamorous and vicious world of Belmont and Venice. In Shakespeare’s most troubling comedy, religious intolerance, outward appearances, ethnicity, prejudices and the distinction between justice and revenge are all examined within the framework of two romantic folk tales and a gripping courtroom drama. Along with Hamlet, The Merchant of Venice shares the distinction of having been performed more often than any other Shakespeare play. In a frightening world which seems increasingly divided by ethnicity, distrust, religion, wealth and legal arguments, the viewer must decide where their sympathies lie: with the merchant or with the Jew? This play has surely never been more relevant than it is today. 17

Handbagged

by Moira Buffini

Whatever we say must stay between these three walls.

This amateur production appears by arrangement with Nick Hern books.

The monarch and her most powerful subject. One believed there was no such thing as society and the other had vowed to serve it. Moira Buffini’s sparkling and insightful piece cleverly explores the nature of history – and what might have gone on behind closed doors at the weekly meetings between the Queen and Mrs Thatcher. The story of Britain in the 1980s, and its changing role in the world, unfolds through the relationship between these two formidable stateswomen – two very different characters. Moira Buffini’s high-spirited play, premiering in 2013, views both her main protagonists with an empathetic and respectful eye. We catch a glimpse of the awkwardness and sharpness beneath a polite and formal surface. The result is funny and fast-moving, taking in snapshots of the historical highlights of the time, and shifting effortlessly from high comedy to occasional moments of tragedy. 18

We were lucky. When the wave came, the house was flooded, but not destroyed... just stinking and full of silt... the stench... We fed the cows for the last time... We drove away. We knew they’d all be dead in days. This amateur production appears by arrangement with Nick Hern books.

by Lucy Kirkwood In the wake of a disastrous nuclear meltdown, retired couple Robin and Hazel now live in a crumbling cottage, just outside of the exclusion zone around the coastal power station where they once worked as nuclear physicists. Rose, a former colleague, arrives unexpectedly for a long overdue visit. Chatting and reminiscing casually at first, the cracks in their friendship soon emerge as Robin, Hazel and Rose confront the roles they’ve played in each other’s lives and face a terrifying decision together. This gripping drama, written by Lucy Kirkwood as a single continuous scene, premiered in 2016. Inspired by the 2011 Fukushima nuclear disaster in Japan, it tells a very human story of life, ageing and relationships against the background of a world in ecological peril. 19

Hobson’s Choice by Harold Brighouse

You’re a right old maid Maggie if ever there was one. You’re thirty and shelved.

Artwork by Colin Treliving. This amateur production appears by arrangement with Samuel French Ltd.

In this delightful and much-loved comedy old Henry Hobson the bootmaker runs a successful shop with a good reputation – or rather his three sensible daughters run it while Hobson grumbles and chides them, between his drinking bouts at the Moonraker’s Inn. Maggie, the eldest Hobson daughter, sees a chance to better her prospects through a marriage – and business partnership – with Willie Mossop, their naïve but talented leatherworker. The unlikely match, and her father’s indignation, puts a damper on the wedding plans of Maggie’s sisters Alice and Vickey, who both have suitors, but Maggie has a plan to fix that too... Brighouse’s hugely popular Mancunian comedy has entertained audiences for over a hundred years since its debut in 1915. 20
