Paul Beasley and Kieran Shryane working on the set for A Christmas Carol (November 2012)

Welcome


Welcome to our new season of Made In Northampton productions. The 2013 season is going to be one of our liveliest as we bring together some of the UK’s finest and funniest writers in a selection of plays that we think will continue to entertain and delight our loyal supporters and entice new audiences to experience productions Made In Northampton. Everything that you see on stage will have been crafted here at Royal & Derngate under the leadership of our Artistic Director, Laurie Sansom. It is with sadness though that we have to say ‘goodbye’ to Laurie this spring as he takes up the post of Artistic Director of the National Theatre of Scotland. We are immensely proud of all that he has achieved here and are delighted that his presence will still be felt throughout the coming year, especially in his final production as Director, Willy Russell’s One For The Road in February. The benefits of subscribing to the season are considerable, and even better this year with the opportunity to buy additional tickets for friends and family members at a discounted price. We have introduced some 5pm school-friendly performances as a direct result of feedback from schools. Subscribers and regular audience members are, of course, most welcome at these new ‘twilight’ performances. So, whether you are a regular subscriber or a first time attendee; coming alone or in a crowd; to matinees, twilight or evening shows, we look forward to welcoming you to one of the country’s most beautiful theatres, for another great year of theatre, Made In Northampton. With best wishes

It is with great pleasure that I introduce you to our Comedy Gold season, the seventh titled season since the new building opened in 2006. It all began seven years ago with our Love & Madness season, and many of you have joined us for Addicted To You, Hometown, Ayckbourn At 70, Young America and last year’s Festival Of Chaos. As I prepare to move on to the new challenge of leading the National Theatre of Scotland, I can look back over so many shows that you have helped to make personal highlights. Some special moments include the opening night of Follies in a beautifully restored Royal Theatre, the nightly standing ovations for Tracie Bennett in a truly astonishing performance as Judy Garland in End Of The Rainbow, and seeing Royal & Derngate’s name scrolling across the top of the National Theatre when Spring Storm and Beyond The Horizon transferred for a sell-out run. It is only through the generous support of our audiences and funders that the theatre has been able to gain its unrivalled reputation for producing bold, challenging work, and I want to thank you all for making it possible. I am sure the theatre will continue to be an essential focus for the cultural life of the town and county, proving emphatically that flourishing regional theatres are an indispensable part of the nation’s identity and spirit. Northampton certainly knows how to put on a good show, and long may it continue.

One For The Road by Willy Russell


I think there’s something very ominous about Tupperware. How can anyone make a multi-million pound business out of lids that don’t fit properly? What’s in a title? In the rare summer of 1976 I was on holiday on the Isle of Mull where I completed a new stage play. On the title page I typed the words TUPPERWARE MAN, the obvious and perfect title. Three months later, rehearsals of the play were just about to begin and I received a phone call, from an American lawyer representing the firm of Tupperware. He tells me that his client firm has learnt of the imminent production, has acquired a script and has foreseen one or two ‘prahblems’. It seems in my play that I had suggested that it’s not always the easiest thing in the world to fit a Tupperware lid back onto its container. And that didn’t go down too well with the firm. I thought I had better let this guy know that he wasn’t dealing with a mere playwright but also with the proud owner of a certificate in ‘O’ level Law; he was considerably unimpressed although later, when I suggested that in a Court of Law a doddery old judge with shaking hands might also find some difficulty affixing a Tupperware lid to its container, he became far more amicable, even saying, ‘Mr Russell, I have to confess that I have trouble with the goddam lids myself!’ As none of the parties wanted to go to court, we achieved a compromise. The agreement was that the firm would not press for any changes in the script as long as I was prepared to drop the title. Excerpts from the author’s note by Willy Russell in the Methuen edition. Footnote: The play was performed under a number of titles – Painted Veg And Parkinson, Dennis The Menace – before eventually being re-named One For The Road. It was first published in 1980, and then substantially revised into its current version in 1985. Interestingly Harold Pinter also premiered a play under the same title in 1984.

This hilarious ’80s comedy by one of the country’s most acclaimed writers (Educating Rita, Shirley Valentine, Blood Brothers) finds Dennis, on the eve of his birthday, making a desperate attempt to ditch the trappings of his newly acquired middle class life. Imprisoned on Phase Two of a new housing estate and surrounded by Tupperware parties, Richard Clayderman fans and garden gnomes, Dennis yearns for his youth of road trips and music festivals. Once neighbours Roger and Jane arrive to help celebrate his birthday, it is not long before he reaches breaking point. As the day spirals out of control, it becomes clear that the mindless vandalism inflicted on the estate may not be down to local teenagers after all, and his wife and friends may not be quite what they seem. Dennis must attempt a break for freedom. One of Willy Russell’s funniest and most poignant plays, One For The Road is directed by Laurie Sansom as his last production at Royal & Derngate. Con O’Neill will play Dennis. A familiar face on television and in theatres across the country, he has been closely associated with Willy Russell’s work including his Olivier Award-winning performance as Mickey in Blood Brothers. He also recently played record producer Joe Meek in both the stage play and film of Telstar.

MR WHATNOT by Alan Ayckbourn


Watch this man closely. He is a piano tuner. It was in 1963 whilst acting with the newly formed Victoria Theatre, Stoke-on-Trent, that I first dreamed up the idea of writing a silent film, for the stage. That is, a play that depended upon lengthy visual techniques with the minimum emphasis on dialogue which actors, as opposed to trained mime artists, could perform.
Mr Whatnot was the result.
 It has no message - no claims to anything deep or mysterious. The people in it really do exist. Just buy a copy of the Tatler and you’ll see where I pinched what dialogue there is. They’re narrow, stuffy, unimaginative, boring and I’m very fond of them.
 I hope you enjoy the exploits of Mr Whatnot who blunders into their world. After all, that was why it was written, purely for laughter. Alan Ayckbourn www.alanayckbourn.net

Alan Ayckbourn is one of the country’s most loved and prolific playwrights. Following on from our Ayckbourn at 70 Season in 2009 we are delighted to present one of his rarely seen early plays – his very first to transfer to the West End. This is the 50th anniversary production of a side-splitting play combining a tribute to the physical comedy of the silent movie era with the very British obsessions with class, cucumber sandwiches and bed-hopping. In this hilarious fish-out-of-water tale, a naïve but highly imaginative piano tuner is summoned to the stately home of Lord and Lady Slingsby-Craddock. A case of mistaken identity leads to an increasingly surreal series of encounters over a summer weekend of tennis matches and afternoon tea, as Mr Whatnot attempts to win the affections of their debutante daughter Amanda. Think Mr Bean goes to Downton. A wonderfully silly tale of havoc and mayhem, Mr Whatnot is directed by the brilliant Cal McCrystal, long-term collaborator with Spymonkey and physical comedy director for the award‑winning National Theatre production, One Man, Two Guvnors. “Fans of comic theatre... know him as Britain’s funniest director” The Guardian on Cal McCrystal

A Midsummer Night’s Dream by William Shakespeare


The course of true love never did run smooth

Midsummer customs Second in importance only to Halloween to the fairies, Midsummer or St John’s Eve is one of the few times of the year when it is said that we can see fairies with the unaided eye, especially at twilight. At this time, fairy wells are dressed and blessed, fairy rings are noted and revered. Wishes for luck, or charms against any mischief, are made out of wheat, straw and flowers to hang on the door. In England it was an ancient custom to light large bonfires after sundown, serving the double purpose of providing light to the revellers and also warding off evil spirits. People often jumped through the fires for good luck. Bands of people wandered from one bonfire to another, with lanterns on poles, often accompanied by morris dancers and hobby-horse riders. Most young people planned to stay up throughout the whole of this, the shortest night of the year. Some might risk keeping watch in the centre of a circle of standing stones, and it was believed that this could result in death or madness or, hopefully, the power of inspiration to become a great poet or bard.

‘Methought I was enamoured of an ass’ Titania, Act 4 Scene 1 Slip into a world of enchantment and mischief in Shakespeare’s best loved comedy. This new production sets the action in Edwardian England, but mischief is afoot and the usual divides of upstairs/downstairs have been turned upside down. Worlds real and unreal collide, passion and madness erupt, love and magic work their potent charms and love at first sight proves real for some but makes an ass of others. Perfect both as an introduction to Shakespeare and for seasoned Shakespeare audiences, A Midsummer Night’s Dream offers a feast of humour and magic. Under the thrilling and energetic direction of Gary Sefton (who directed A Christmas Carol, Diary Of A Nobody and Travels With My Aunt for Royal & Derngate) the winning combination of Shakespeare’s lyrical text and some of his funniest characters make this rich, vivid production a real treat for all ages. “The cleverest, fastest entertainment I have seen for months” HHHHH Daily Mail on Diary of a Nobody

Dancing At Lughnasa by Brian Friel


When I remember it, I think of it as dancing. Dancing with eyes half closed because to open them would break the spell. Late one summer’s evening in London in 1987, Brian Friel walked along the Thames Embankment with Tom Kilroy. The two playwrights had just left the National Theatre, where they had seen Friel’s dramatisation of Turgenev’s Fathers And Sons. As they passed homeless men and women curled up in doorways and trash-filled alleys, the writers speculated about the lives of these unfortunate people. Friel said he had two maiden aunts who ended up like that, destitute and abandoned in London. Just before World War II they had suddenly left the family home in the tiny village of Glenties in Donegal, and never returned. Caught up by the story, Kilroy suggested Friel write a play about it. Dancing At Lughnasa is loosely based on the lives of Friel’s mother and aunts who lived in Glenties, on the west coast of Donegal. Though it never loses its focus on the five brave women to whom it is dedicated, it is by no means wholly autobiographical. The three main departures from fact are first, that Friel was not a love-child; second, that his uncle, though he was indeed a missionary priest in Africa, never went native; and third, the festival of Lughnasa, (though as recently as 1962 a researcher located 195 sites in Ireland where Lughnasa was still being observed), was already forgotten by the inhabitants of Glenties in the thirties. These three fictional additions transform the play, universalising it in ways that we shall see. Keith Sagar www.keithsagar.co.uk

Dancing at Lughnasa by Brian Friel Director Richard Beecham Designer Naomi Dawson Composer & Sound Designer Jon Nicholls

Rural Donegal, 1936. The Mundy sisters cry, laugh and dance together, at a time when life is simple but making ends meet seems impossibly hard.

Eves 7.45pm (excl. Tue 28 May 7pm & Tue 4 Jun 5pm) Thu & Sat Matinees 2.30pm (excl. Sat 25 May) School-friendly performance Tue 4 June 5pm

During a summer when their missionary brother returns from Africa a changed man and the Mundy’s are gifted their first wireless radio, relationships are tested, social conventions challenged and the doctrines of the church clash with the spirit of a Pagan past. Dreams of love crumble as dusk sets on the life the sisters knew.

Told through the eyes of seven-year old Michael, Brian Friel’s Olivier and Tony Award-winning play is a magical, moving, memory-story filled with humour, tenderness and the longing of unfulfilled lives. Richard Beecham returns to Royal & Derngate to direct after his critically acclaimed productions of Terrence Rattigan’s In Praise of Love and Charlotte Jones’ Humble Boy. “Richard Beecham’s moving and enormously enjoyable production packs a powerful emotional punch” Mail on Sunday on In Praise of Love

To Sir, With Love

based on the novel by E R Braithwaite adapted by Ayub Khan Din


I believe one should fight for what one believes. Provided one is absolutely sure one is absolutely right.

E R Braithwaite reflects on his time as a teacher The pupils were actually a product of their environment. They were big, they were tough, or at least they saw themselves as being tough, and they wanted me to see them as being tough... There was no overt disrespect... everything was hinted at. Under no circumstances would I quit on them, because to quit would be to quit on teaching, and I liked the idea of being a teacher. I liked the idea of being called ‘Sir’, no matter how reluctantly it came out, and there was reluctance. The problem was that the idea of a black teacher did not appeal to them... but after a while, the ‘blackness’ did not interfere with my teaching. I think they were eventually able to ignore my blackness in favour of my teaching. The idea of being an engineer began leaching out of my system, because there is something about teaching; it grips you. It grips you because each night I had to prepare something for the next day, which meant that each night was a period of discovery. I had to read and re-read to make connections. I had to do things to face the students the next day. There was never a dull moment. It was difficult to leave because in spite of myself, I felt a closeness to them, and as the time of my departure drew near, I found that the things that I disliked about them most were not so offensive after all. I saw myself in them.

Sat 7 Sep) School-friendly performance Tue 17 Mar 5pm Tue 24 Sep 7.45pm Wed 25 Sep 7.45pm & Thu 26 Sep 2.30pm Thu 26 Sep 7.45pm Post Show Talk Back Mon 16 Sep

Based on an autobiographical novel, To Sir, With Love is an inspirational story of courage and hope. Ricky Braithwaite, a Cambridge graduate, arrives in London and soon learns what it is to be black in post-war England. As a teacher in a ‘failing’ East End school, he must find a way into the hearts and minds of his unruly class to motivate and inspire the disillusioned and challenging teenagers. Teacher and pupils embark on a difficult journey as Ricky learns humility and understanding and his pupils learn to trust, respect and love this highly unusual man. Made into a major film in 1967, this new stage adaptation of the book is by Ayub Khan Din, author of the acclaimed East Is East. Peppered with songs and music of the late ’40s, and featuring local young people in the cast, this production will tour the country after its world premiere in Northampton. As relevant today as when it was first written, in a time of austerity and unemployment, this inspiring story is still a lesson for us all. “A fresh, funny account of changing values and the need to make your own place in the world” the guardian on East is east
