A DAY OF PLEASURE STORIES OF A BOY GROWING UP IN WARSAW World Première Tour By Isaac Bashevis Singer Directed by Neil Sissons

New York. 1978. The cab driver is waiting to take him to the airport. The evening before he travels to Stockholm to collect the Nobel Prize for Literature, Isaac Bashevis Singer - a passionate, brilliant storyteller - recalls a fascinating childhood full of mystery, torment and adventure. A Day of Pleasure is about more than a young boy growing up in a strange and exotic world - it is about growing up itself. Singer brings to life the vivid characters of pre-war Warsaw, his own character and the human conditions that affect us all. Performed by Stuart Richman - a founding member of the Liverpool Everyman Acting Company.

MONKEY BARS By Chris Goode

Award-winning writer Chris Goode asked forty 8 to 10 year-olds to talk about their lives. About being scared, getting lost, being brave, growing up. About the adult world that surrounds and awaits them. About family and faith and their favourite sweets. In Monkey Bars, their words are spoken by adults - playing adults in adult situations. Monkey Bars is a funny and endlessly surprising verbatim show which offers a revelatory insight into what children are trying to tell us about their lives - and ours - that we don’t always hear. HHHH “Hilarious and poignant by turns… beautifully staged” The Telegraph

WORLD PREMIĂˆRE

A new adaptation by Chris Hannan Based on the novel by Fyodor Dostoyevsky

8


“Everybody wants to change the world. Nobody thinks to change himself.” One of the most extraordinary novels of all time, Crime and Punishment gets inside the mind of a starving, destitute student who commits a brutal double murder. Raskolnikov is surrounded by the harsh injustices of the world; the grime of poverty and prostitution, unscrupulous pawnbrokers chasing debts; and a sister about to marry someone she doesn’t love to keep her family alive.

Sat 19 Oct at 2pm

Directed by Dominic Hill Designed by Colin Richmond Lighting Design by Chris Davey Music by Nikola Kodjabashia Movement by Benedicte Seierup & Lucien MacDougall

His guilt is unbearable. Only Sonya, a downtrodden prostitute, can offer any chance of redemption. As Raskolnikov enters a dangerous cat and mouse game with the magistrate, a psychological thriller unfolds that probes how far humanity might go when driven by disillusionment and whether any crime can be justified by a higher purpose. Chris Hannan’s stage adaptation is an exciting, fresh and accessible new way to explore Dostoyevsky’s masterpiece, realised by the awardwinning creative team behind The Three Musketeers and the Princess of Spain. 9

Lakin McCarthy Entertainment presents

Mark Thomas is well versed in the art of creative mayhem and over the years his troublemaking has changed laws, cost companies millions and annoyed those who most deserved to be. Now he returns to what he does best mischief- joyously bad behaviour with a purpose. After his award winning show Bravo Figaro - which was at the Playhouse earlier this year Mark sets himself the task of committing 100 Acts of Minor Dissent in the space of a year. Mark catalogues everything from the smallest and silliest gesture to the grandest confrontations and the results are subversive, hilarious, mainly legal and occasionally inspiring. “Tender and poignant, it was clear it came straight from the heart� 8/10 Liverpool ECHO on Bravo Figaro 11

It’s Friday night and time for a pint for Ken and his loyal apprentices Morse,“Fleetwood’s answer to Jack Kerouac, if anyone’s asking” and Ryan, who just wants a smile from the girl at the bus stop. But a storm is brewing, and the thunder of bulldozers grows closer. And then, Carlsberg in one hand, Jimmy Choos in the other, Jodie turns up… Scrappers is a funny and tender story of diamonds in the rough, where a little bit of magic sparkles under the rusting tangle of modern life.

Headlong and Nottingham Playhouse Theatre Company present

1984 By George Orwell

A new adaptation created by Robert Icke and Duncan Macmillan Text by Duncan Macmillan Directed by Robert Icke

April, 1984. 13:00. Comrade 6079, Winston Smith, thinks a thought, starts a diary, and falls in love. But Big Brother is watching him - and the door to Room 101 can swing open in the blink of an eye. Its ideas have become our ideas, and Orwell’s fiction is often said to be our reality. The definitive book of the 20th century is re-examined in a radical new staging exploring surveillance, identity and how thinking you can fly might actually be the first step to flying. In an age of mass surveillance, ‘total’ policing and GPS tracking, 1984 is as relevant now as it ever was. “The country’s most exciting touring company” The Telegraph

THE GRAND GESTURE By Deborah McAndrew

Freely adapted from The Suicide by Nikolai Erdman Directed by Conrad Nelson Simeon Duff is unemployed and desperate. His wife works. He’s lost all self esteem. He’s on the scrap heap and wants to end it all … When word gets out that Duff is going to top himself, a host of ne’er-do-wells crawl out of the woodwork, each wanting to claim his ‘grand gesture’ for their noble cause. Let’s face it, why waste a death? But which cause shall it be… love, politics, religion, or the rising price of fish? Conrad Nelson (A Government Inspector, Lisa’s Sex Strike, The Canterbury Tales and Accidental Death of an Anarchist) directs a large cast of charismatic northern actor-musicians in this brilliantly insane comedy about a man on the edge. With live onstage music.

Not amused, the Empress screamed at our champ… “Off with your head, or find me my lamp!” Aladdin weighed it up and went with the latter, He didn’t much fancy his head on a platter! So he set off straight away to seek that which he sought, A rusty old lamp, well that’s what he thought… Come on down to the rave in a cave, Show us your moves and dare to be brave!

an everyman for everyone

View of the auditorium, Spring 2013

Early next year the beautiful new Everyman will open its doors. New incarnations of the much-loved wraparound theatre and basement Bistro will be complemented by new spaces to discuss and discover, imagine and create, eat and meet. The whole building will be accessible, inviting and environmentally friendly. And a Portrait Wall façade representing the people of Liverpool will express the fact that this is truly an Everyman for Everyone.

24

Building Progress The new Everyman is nearly here‌ the external structure is almost complete; the shutters for the Portrait Wall have all been made, and the auditorium and Bistro are starting to reveal their personalities. The original Hope Hall bricks are a strong presence throughout and bring a wonderful sense of history into this 21st century building.


The front of the new theatre will feature 105 shutters, featuring full-size portraits of 105 people of Liverpool. A full list of the 105 people on the Portrait Wall can be found on our website www.everymanplayhouse.com/ neweveryman

Keep Up! Our website features a live video webcam watching the building site 24 hours a day; regular news, blogs and updates; design plans, photos and videos. Cranecam view, May 2013

E ve ry on e fo r th e E ve ry m an “The Everyman provided me and many others with the courage to follow our dreams and pursue a career in the theatre. Now it can do the same for a whole new generation and act as a creative heart in the city.� DAVID MORRISSEY

Talent fund The building is just the start of the story. Alongside construction of the new theatre, we are creating a Talent Fund to nurture the actors, writers, directors and designers who will stimulate and delight us for years to come. By supporting the Everyman appeal, you will not only be helping create a beautiful building, but also helping support future generations of theatre talent.

The New Everyman is supported by:

YEP Papertown 26


Name a seat When the new Everyman opens early next year you can make sure you see your name on one of the best seats in the house by naming one! The new seats, specially designed for the Everyman, will replace the cinema seats and hard benches of old. Covered in rich velvet, they will offer a whole new level of comfort and create a warm and welcoming glow. By making a monthly gift of £50 for 10 months or a one-off donation of £500 you will have the opportunity to dedicate one of the fantastic new seats. Your seat dedication could be a gift for someone special, to mark an important occasion, a memorial for a loved one or simply to celebrate your own relationship with the Everyman.

“It is a thrill and a delight to support in some small way the emergence of wonderful theatre for future generations.” Maureen Malkinson, Donor All seat dedications will remain for a minimum of ten years. The new auditorium will be flexible and seats will move around, therefore we cannot guarantee the position of your seat, but we will invite you in to explore the building before it opens to the public and sit in your special seat.
