WELCOME To our Spring/Summer Season 2013. It is four years since I arrived in Scarborough and they have flown by. This season I am taking time to reflect, hatch future plans and develop some exciting new projects. But never fear, I’m leaving you in the capable hands of two giants of British Theatre – Alan Ayckbourn and John Godber – who direct their own work as part of a season that also includes a host of entertaining, varied and excellent visiting work. On a sadder note, on New Year’s Eve we lost Charles ‘Mac’ McCarthy. Without Mac’s tireless efforts the Odeon would never have been converted into our beloved SJT. His support for me was typical: generous, energetic and enthusiastic. We will all miss him. We take our role as custodians of this historic Odeon building very seriously and passionately believe that it is an important cultural icon for the town and a valuable community resource. In order to secure its future for the next generation – particularly relevant in the countdown to our 60th anniversary celebrations in 2015 – our home needs some significant conservation and maintenance.

We need your help to achieve this and together can make a real difference. To contribute directly towards caring for this important building we plan to ask for a modest 60p donation to each ticket. I hope you can appreciate the importance of this small contribution and look forward to sharing with you details of the work we are able to achieve through this restoration appeal. Thank you as always for your understanding and your continued loyal support.

The Stephen Joseph Theatre Company in

Written and directed by Alan Ayckbourn “...that was probably one of the best, the happiest moments of our lives. Only the trouble with those sort of moments is that you seldom ever realise that they are until they’ve gone.” It is Laura Stratton’s birthday and, to celebrate the event, her husband Gerry, their two sons and their partners are gathered for an evening out in the family’s favourite restaurant. The dinner turns out to be a significant moment in all their lives with repercussions for years to come. Time Of My Life was first produced in Scarborough in 1992 and presented a year later in the West End at the Vaudeville Theatre. This will be its first major revival directed by the author.

Major Quentin Sexton and his hand-picked SSDO (Strategic Simulated Distractional Operations) Unit are poised, ready to pounce. To assist them, civilian witness Barry Hawkins and Ez Swain, his ‘minder’, are on hand to confirm final identification. What can possibly go wrong? For the luckless Major quite a lot really, when his key witness turns out to be a garrulous, suspiciously unreliable traffic warden and the minder, a troubled young female soldier with severe attitude problems. On top of which, is Quentin’s so-called elite unit really all it’s cracked up to be?

Total Football

- More Beckett than Beckham

Written and performed by David Woods and Jon Haynes Picking over football systems, political wrangling and changing room banter, Total Football tackles the big questions of life – immortality, happiness and why England always lose. From the controversial attempt to create a united UK football team for the 2012 games to one man’s attempts to reproduce when he can’t even explain the offside rule, Ridiculusmus has patched up its metatarsals to examine the melting pot of what it means to be British today. Building on the Company’s reputation for making seriously funny, multi-award winning theatre and masterfully inventive comic writing, Total Football is a wickedly clever, mischievously sharp and acutely observed meditation on our times.

Provocative surrealists Ridiculusmus are the last men on the planet you’d want to run your soccer team...

Adapted and performed by Rebecca Vaughan Directed by Olivier Award Winner, Guy Masterson

An artist, gripped by the clutching fingers of a dead past; a scientist, defying nature in the dark realm of the senses; an expectant father, driven mad by creeping shadows… In the unquiet darkness between life and death, a haunted woman tells chilling tales of the curious frailties of human nature. From the Victorian legacy of gothic fiction, many thrilling and eerie stories by great female writers of the era have gathered dust and been forgotten. Until now.

Daniel Kitson

After the Beginning . Before the End This is a very specific point in time. I’ve been waiting to have the idea for this show for weeks, for months. A space held open in my head waiting for the idea. For months. I’ve done previews and I’ve booked the tour and I’ve stared at the internet and I’ve made chicken and I’ve tried not to worry. But the idea has not come and I have worried. I’ve worried and doubted and waited more and more and more. But then today, having dropped my dad off at the train station and met my friends for some coffee, Whilst driving home to write this (very overdue) brochure copy - dreading the thought of heaving half lies and optimistic promises into something vaguely intriguing but not developmentally restrictive half way home, it happened. Somewhere between East London and South London - It arrived. The Idea. Just like that. Like a child, late home from school, oblivious to the worry and the panic and the phone calls. It just walked in and sat down like it wasn’t even a big deal. So now I’m typing this in my bedroom because the boy who lives next door is playing the James Bond theme on what I assume to be a trumpet . And you have to trust me . Two hours ago I didn’t have the idea. Now I do. And it’s going to be good. £10

“one of the most exciting [companies] in the land”

Two lifelong friends are parted first by circumstance, then by rivalry in love. Can their loyalty to each other survive the test, or will new loyalties drive out the old? How deep into perfidy can one be driven by sexual obsession?

On SATTF’s The Comedy of Errors 2011:

Stella,

a story of women and astronomy By Siobhán Nicholas

In ancient civilisations, temple priestesses meticulously mapped the heavens, seeking to understand their gods. And so astronomy was born. A story of time and space: two women astronomers, from the 21st and 18th, look up at the same night sky and find themselves colliding in their search for understanding. Caroline Herschel longs for a family and home of her own; Jess contemplates the prospect of losing both. Each woman can precisely map her position in the universe yet struggles to find her place in the world.

“the audience choked on the bared emotions and the wonderment of people seeing deep space for the first time” The Guardian on the public reading of Stella £15 - £10 24

Ginger Baker’s Jazz Confusion They once voted Ginger Baker as ‘the musician least likely to survive the 60s’. Now, four and a bit decades later, Ginger has proved them all wrong, returned to the UK and formed a formidable quartet with funk and jazz giant Pee Wee Ellis (tenor sax), Alec Dankworth (bass) and Abass Dodoo (percussion).

The music is a healthy mix of Thelonius Monk, Wayne Shorter, Sonny Rollins, plus originals by Pee Wee Ellis and Mr. Baker himself; a fresh, challenging and highly charged mix of jazz, fusion and African sounds. Ginger Baker and Ghanaian percussionist Abass Dodoo provide a perfect powerhouse of rhythms.

A greater choice of films, new releases quicker, our ability to show more screenings and present more specialist, classic, children’s and foreign language films among our standard programme. We plan to introduce the occasional ‘season’, which in turn gives us scope for Q&A’s with members of the film industry.

‘Live’ in the Mac

Sign up

Through partnerships with the The National Theatre and The Royal Opera House we will soon be the first and only cinema in Scarborough to stream live performances of theatre, opera and ballet from these venues as they are staged in London.

The move to digital will make our programming more flexable allowing us to react to a films popularity. As a result we will no longer be producing seasonal printed leaflets. Films will be advertised as normal around the building, at the Box Office, in the local press and on the website. The best way to keep up to date will be to join the e-flyer list via www.sjt. uk.com ticking the film option!

The

Shop The Shop inside the SJT not only sells a great range of unusual cards, but also boutique and bespoke handmade jewellery for that perfect present.

31

Specialising in every published Alan Ayckbourn play in print, The Shop also stocks audition speeches, theatre books and 21st century plays. If you are looking for a certain script or theatre book our staff can advise and order the play in (we’ll even post it out to you!).

Don’t forget: amateur groups, schools and colleges get 10% off! The shop is open for one hour before performances and during the interval – during the day we are open on request, so just pop in and ask. Email shop@sjt.uk.com to ask a question or place an order.


Access
