WELCOME TO SUMMER AT TRINITY Welcome to our Summer Season and, as temperatures rise and evenings lengthen, I hope that you will find plenty to entice and entertain you. With the promise of summer, our garden becomes an oasis of calm in the middle of town. Why not enjoy a spot of lunch or a pre-theatre drink in a beautiful location far removed from the traffic? Our programme continues to offer an eclectic mix of live theatre, comedy, music and dance combined with the best of world cinema and live screenings. As we head into the summer holidays there is plenty for children and young people as well. Our popular Sunday afternoon children’s theatre continues as well as family films programmed throughout the season. We also have two of our Youth Theatre summer schools, this year presenting Madagascar and Les Misérables, as well as individual workshops. So, there’s lots for them to both see and do! If you have visited us online recently you will have seen that we now have a brand new website which has been made possible by funding from the Arts Council. For this we are extremely grateful. We will be continuing to develop this and adding content to it, but I hope that you will agree that it is a major improvement on our previous website and helps us better represent ourselves online. I think we are on the verge of significant changes in our cultural offer, here in Tunbridge Wells, with the Cultural Hub and new theatre project. We have our own exciting plans to enhance the heritage of our building and to help us grow to become even more resilient and sustainable going forward. I hope that we will be in a position to share these plans with you in the near future. As ever I welcome your feedback and comments – please feel free to email me at john@trinitytheatre.net

Skylight By David Hare Directed by Meg Nutt Tue 1 May - Sat 5 May | 7.30pm Wed 2 May & Sat 5 May | 2.30pm

Two former lovers are reunited, years after their affair. In a tiny, freezing flat in the East End, they wrestle with their past, their present – and each other. Driven by a zinging, stinging mixture of wit and anger, David Hare’s chamber masterpiece is a passionate dissection of the state of the nation and the human heart. A modern classic, Skylight is even more resonant now than when it premiered at the National Theatre in 1995. Revived at the Wyndham’s Theatre in 2014, starring Bill Nighy and Carey Mulligan, storming Broadway and winning the 2015 Tony Award for Best Revival of a Play, Hare’s play hits you straight between the eyes with its mixture of private pain and public rage at a profoundly polarised society. Fierce, funny, and achingly truthful, Skylight is a must-see drama about power, politics and passion. Opening Night Offer: 2 Tickets For £24 £15 (£14) £12 | Matinee £10

This amateur production is presented by arrangement with Samuel French LTD

Vanessa

Madama Butterfly Thu 21 Jun | 6.30pm

Thu 26 Jul | 6.30pm

An operatic thriller from the age of Hitchcock, Samuel Barber’s Pulitzer Prizewinning first opera boasts one of the 20th century’s most beautiful scores. Poised constantly on the edge of song, Vanessa unfolds in generous swathes of melody, rich in filmic strings and soaring brass, with echoes of Puccini, Berg and Strauss. It climaxes in a final quintet of Mozartean poignancy. Seldom performed in the UK, this is a rare opportunity to see Barber’s heart-breaking domestic drama.

Madama Butterfly is a classic love story that never fails to move, a tragic romance that sweeps you along in the intensity of its action. Bursting with exotic colour and memorable melodies, Puccini’s seductive score conceals a dramatic blade that cuts to the heart. Blending authentic Japanese music with luscious European harmonies and orchestration, the opera is an irresistible fusion of East and West.

Handel’s vision of a Lear-like king is astonishing in its psychological complexity, offering a musical portrait of mental collapse few have since matched. Combined with thrilling choruses that exploit the virtuosic potential of their singers, exquisite arias and bold orchestration filled with unusual instruments, it creates a Biblical drama of truly Shakespearean scope. Barrie Kosky’s blazingly original and visually spectacular staging of Handel’s oratorio pairs baroque music with contemporary choreography.

Manon

Swan Lake

Sun 6 May | 2pm

Tue 12 Jun | 7.15pm

Kenneth MacMillan’s powerful telling of Manon and Des Grieux’s tragic love is a masterpiece of modern ballet, set to music by Massenet. MacMillan’s source for Manon was the 18th-century French novel already adapted for opera by Massenet and Puccini. MacMillan’s spectacular ensemble scenes for the whole Company create vivid, complex portraits of the distinct societies of Paris and New Orleans. But it is Manon and Des Grieux’s impassioned pas de deux that drive this tragic story, and make Manon one of MacMillan’s most powerful dramas.

The Royal Ballet presents a new production of Tchaikovsky’s magnificent classical ballet, with additional choreography by Liam Scarlett and designs by John McFarlane. Swan Lake has had a special role in the repertory of The Royal Ballet since 1934. In this new production, while remaining faithful to the Petipa-Ivanov text, Scarlett will bring fresh eyes to the staging of this classic ballet, in collaboration with his long-term designer John Macfarlane.

FILM 23

Working with top international museums and galleries, Exhibition On Screen create films which offer a cinematic immersion into the world’s best loved art, accompanied by insights from the world’s leading historians and arts critics. We’re pleased to bring three to our screen this summer...

I, Claude Monet

Cézanne: Portraits of a Life

Vincent Van Gogh: A New Way of Seeing

Fri 27 Jul | 8pm | 85 mins | PG | Phil Grabsky One can’t appreciate 20th century art without understanding the significance and genius of Paul Cézanne. Featuring interviews with curators and experts from the National Portrait Gallery London, MoMA New York, National Gallery of Art Washington, and Musée d’Orsay Paris, and correspondence from the artist himself, the film takes audiences beyond the exhibition to the places Cézanne lived and worked and sheds light on an artist who is perhaps the least-known of all the impressionists – until now.

Wed 8 Aug | 8pm | 87 mins | U | Phil Grabsky Monet’s life is a gripping tale about a man who, behind his sun-dazzled canvases, suffered from BACKGROUND feelingsONofDARK depression, loneliness, even suicide. However, as his art developed and his love of gardening led to the glories of his Giverny garden, his humour, insight and love of life are revealed. Told through Monet’s own words and shot on location at the very spots he painted, the film features his most loved paintings in an unforgettable, immersive art experience.

Tue 31 Jul | 8pm | 90 mins | PG | David Bickerstaff Perhaps more than any other artist, Van Gogh’s life has long captured the imagination of storytellers. Delving deep into his fascinating and sometimes deeply troubled world comes this definitive, awardwinning documentary showcases Van Gogh’s iconic works like never before and features exclusive interviews with the curatorial team at the Van Gogh Museum.

Television credits include: QI (BBC1), Mock The Week (BBC2), Grumpy Old Men (BBC1), Back In The Day (BBC2).

Star of Live At The Apollo, Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow, Friday Night with Jonathan Ross, Have I Got News for You and QI, Shappi is on the road with her new sell out show. £18 (£17) £15

Vulnerability

Geometry for the Many, Not the Few

With a sound knowledge of anatomy, Jenny’s bold exaggeration of the figure and use of colour combine to produce unusual and evocative paintings. Working in gouache, acrylic, ink and charcoal, her highly expressive paintings are both emotional and thought-provoking.

2D and 3D geometric forms and their use within the current world is the theme which carries this project. From sculptures of icosahedrons and pyramids, to digital manipulation of photographs that incorporate these forms, this exhibition comments on environmental and political concerns.

Substance 12

Landscapes

Substance 12 presents an exciting mix of new artistic talent. Graduating from the University of Kent, these artists have prepared an eclectic exhibition covering a multitude of media. Their intention is to convey and explore a wide range of themes, techniques and material including cultural identity, abstraction, organic matter, social conditions and space.

Francisco has been a professional artist for over eighteen years since graduating from the Florence Academy of Art in Italy. His work has been exhibited extensively and is collected by clients in New York, Washington DC, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Chicago, Tokyo, Paris, Stockholm, Florence and London. Amongst his many international collectors are art dealer Martin Summers, writer Nigel Hinton, Don Foster MP and Roger Daltrey CBE.

New Directions

Keratin

Christa Corner Tue 19 Jun - Sun 1 Jul

Eddie Vanderwerf Tue 3 Jul - Sun 15 Jul

Christa’s inspiration comes from perceptions of and emotional reactions to daily life, the natural world, travel, literature and the human form. These influence an output that includes wall-mounted and sculptural pieces in hand-made paper. Her works also use wire, wax, screws, metal and stitches, combined with highly original use of colour.

Keratin is the substance on animals that composes hair, fur, and feathers, particularly with birds the shape and pigmentation that defines recognizable features as feathers. The natural beauty of subjects is fascinating, and it is these Keratin features of birds that this exhibition concentrates on.

From The Kitchen Table

A Celebration of Sport; The Starting 11

A joint exhibition by wife and husband, Maria and David Strappini. Without a proper studio, the couple use a small kitchen table. The table is the centre of their home, used for all the essentials in life: cooking, eating, entertaining, doing the kids’ homework and art. These works are the journey’s they take and the work they create, on, around and under their small kitchen.

Harriet kick-started her career with a focus on animal portraiture. Yet, a lover of sport, she couldn’t believe the lack of ‘sport art’ available. As a result, she created a series of sports portraiture. Using Instagram as a platform to grow her audience, she has gone on to sell works to Premier League footballers Cesc Fabregas (Chelsea FC) and Aaron Ramsey (Arsenal FC).
