Mind the Gap presents Clive King’s

How the Koala Learnt to Hug

Stig of the Dump Retold by Mike Kenny

An enchanting tale of a unique friendship: Stig wears rabbit-skins, has his own language and uses empty tin cans for a chimney. In his world the outsider is king, nothing is wasted and a dump is filled with endless delights. Barney has scuffed shoes, grazed knees and dirty fingernails. In his world anything is possible, the mundane becomes magical and the sky is as big as his imagination. Join Stig and Barney as puppetry and performance turn rubbish into something real, change scrap into scenery and make garbage gorgeous!

By Steven Lee

Written especially for parents to enjoy with their children, this is a charming tale about the magic of family and, of course, the importance of a nice warm hug! The book is adapted from the short story by Steven Lee (The Witch’s Bogey, Bink and the Hairy Fairy) and features a host of wild characters, including Natascha The Witch, Karen the Koala and the Reggae Beavers. The Show features some great stories, sing along songs, superb games and first-class hugging. Steven will be available to sign copies of How The Koala Learnt To Hug and Other Australian Fairytales, which will be on sale at a specially reduced Carriageworks rate after the show. 

“A perfect introduction to theatre for children, full of audience participation and feel-good factor”

Proper Job Theatre Company presents

The Great Gatsby The story of the American Dream re-imagined for the post-credit crunch era. Adapted from the 20th century American classic by F Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby examines issues of class divide, social corruption and the pursuit of wealth. As we find ourselves struggling to come to terms with the impact of the credit crunch, the old truth still remains: the rich get richer and the poor get poorer. In this version Proper Job does what it does best, giving the story an unrivalled beauty and physicality. The result is a visceral experience, which communicates across language, age and culture.

Daniel Bye presents

The Price of Everything How much is beauty worth? What will people pay for an air guitar on eBay? And can I have a glass of milk? These urgent questions and others are answered in The Price of Everything, a performance lecture about value. Daniel Bye’s whistlestop tour of bizarre facts and impassioned arguments is occasionally shambolic and often opinionated – but always a joy to watch. Comic, provocative, and possibly a tiny bit sad, this show is a must if you’ve ever wondered about the difference between the price of an object and its value. And you get a free glass of milk.

BE FESTIVAL is Birmingham’s new international theatre festival, bringing together the most daring and delightful performances from across Europe. Best of BE FESTIVAL offers the chance to see three award-winning favourites from the 2011 programme. Each show is 30 minutes long, and can be enjoyed and understood by speakers of all languages. This triple bill is complimented by lively discussion, delicious food, and a celebratory atmosphere. This is a unique opportunity to see work that has never toured the UK before, so BE part of it! www.befestival.org Photograph by Cody Bratt & Matt Nuzzaco

My Name is Bill

Translunar Paradise

An Afternoon with an Alcoholic With a raft of five-star reviews at the Edinburgh Festival, My Name is Bill is a gutsy story about the most extraordinary loser you’ll ever meet. A crack storyteller. A brilliant investment banker. And a raging alcoholic in search of redemption. He has one important decision left to make. His life and a million lost souls hang in the balance. This moving one-man show reveals what happens on the day Bill hits rock bottom, turns down a drink and creates Alcoholics Anonymous.

My Grandfather’s Grand Piano and Journey of Songs

Normal

This double bill brings together two delightful performances from Chloe Bezer. These autobiographical and nostalgic pieces are brought to life using a mix of live performance, music, film and visual art. My Grandfather’s Grand Piano revisits holidays spent with her Grandparents as a child, while Journey of Songs – a collaboration with Jess Swainson (visual art) and Matt Tullett (film and projection) – is built around a series of original compositions written and performed on cello.

On 24 May 1930, Peter Kürten allowed himself to be arrested by the Düsseldorf police. He confessed to 79 offences, including theft, arson, assault, rape and murder. He was found guilty and sentenced to death. But before his legacy came to an end he committed one final atrocity. Anthony Neilson’s claustrophobic drama delves into the life of Peter Kürten, the Düsseldorf Ripper, and traces the uneasy relationships developed between Kürten and Wehner, his emotionally stunted defence lawyer, who develops an uneasy empathy for the bloodier recesses of his client’s mind. Contains strong language and scenes that some may find upsetting.

You’re Not Like the Other Girls Chrissy

Light Night

January 1945. Paris has been liberated. Christiane, an eccentric and acutely myopic Parisian waits at Gare Du Nord for a ticket to England to be reunited with her fiancé. Whilst she waits, this gloriously irrepressible mademoiselle recounts the story of her love affair with Cyril, a tongue-tied English teacher from Staffordshire. From a chance encounter at Cheadle tennis club, their story takes us on to a cosmopolitan 1930s Paris before war interrupts their unlikely romance. A fond, comical and ultimately poignant portrait of one woman’s experience of love and war. THE STAGE AWARDS, WINNER: BEST SOLO PERFORMER

Caravaggio: Exile and Death

“Brave, heartfelt and far from subtle, he takes on some of the most difficult and divisive ills in our society and turns them into vivid agit-pop art” THE TIMES

Caravaggio: Exile and Death takes the audience on a journey of a man’s search for forgiveness and redemption after a life fascinated with youth and sexuality, violence, solitude and love. Scarred by imprisonment and the Catholic Church’s dismissal of his works, the painter Caravaggio lived a painful and dramatic life. Combining highly physical choreography with stunning projections and a beautiful soundtrack, Darshan has created a blistering new show that tells the tempestuous story of Caravaggio’s life and art.

Coelacanth She’s a rising star in the sport of competitive tree climbing, he’s a quiet nonentity. How they fall in love isn’t the story. Staying together when their world is filled with imaginary flatmates, underground Compliment Clubs and Satanic jazz bands – that’s the story. From the imagination of one of the Fringe’s most lauded comedy talents comes an extraordinary tale of love, loneliness, tree climbing, and a deeply oblivious fish. Winner of a Herald Angel Award and broadcast as a Radio 4 Afternoon Play, Coelacanth is included in More Trees To Climb, a collection of Ben Moor’s one-man shows. ““Surreal and charming... the script is sharp... clever and witty without being overbearing. A show of quietly confident quality, with a poignant ending full of resonances. This is thought-provoking stuff” METRO

Performance Ellie Harrison presents

The Grief Series Ellie Harrison is a Leeds-based artist and performance maker. She is currently working on a sequence of seven works entitled The Grief Series. As part of a special residency at The Carriageworks (supported by Emerge and Freshly Picked), she presents the first two pieces in the series, with accompanying talks and workshops.

Etiquette of Grief

The Reservation

A step by step guide for how to deal with bereavement. Thousands struggled to cope with the loss of Princess Diana, Jade Goody, Michael Jackson and even, occasionally, their own loved ones. Ellie knows it can be difficult to express feelings of anger, sadness and loss. She would like to provide some moral support, Dutch courage and perhaps a musical accompaniment to inspire you at this testing time. The piece will be accompanied by guest speaker event Breaking the Ice. Before the performance, a professional clinician will join Ellie to discuss creative and therapeutic practices in relation to overcoming trauma and grief.

The Reservation is recruiting now for interns to work in their specialist facility. We are looking for compassionate, open-minded people looking to gain experience in the care profession. Could this be you? Apply now and make a difference. This intimate performance for three people at a time peeks behind closed doors and asks if there is a time and place for expressions of extreme emotion? This site-responsive performance takes place at The Queen’s Hotel, Leeds City Centre. Full details will be given on booking.

As a comedian, best-selling author (Round Ireland with a Fridge and Playing the Moldovans at Tennis), international pop star, celebrated fridge owner, film producer, tennis player, and regular member of some of the UK’s most famous TV and radio panel shows, Tony’s career has meandered into many different areas and he brings them all to life on stage in his warm and entertaining new show.

The following pages include some of the fantastic shows coming up from the Guild societies this season. There’s something for everyone, from spectacular musicals to classic drama. Which will you be seeing? Leeds Civic Arts Guild has a growing membership and you can take part too! Everyone is welcome, from old hands to complete novices. This might be the opportunity you’ve always wanted to tread the boards and become the star of the show. Or you could experience the thrill of being backstage by getting involved in lighting, sound and set building. For more information or to join up, email enquiries@lcag.org.uk or visit www.lcag.org.uk.

Leeds Art Theatre presents

The Servant of Two Masters By Carlo Goldoni

Broke and hungry, a cunning servant gets lucky and lands himself two jobs at once. However, pleasing two masters is more than double trouble for the mischievous Truffaldino. Just to complicate things further, master number one is actually a lady disguised as her brother. She is searching Venice for her longlost lover who, as luck would have it, is master number two! Juggling his duties and trying not to get trapped, Truffaldino is caught in a hilarious whirlwind of mix-ups, mishaps, chaos and confusion.

That’s Entertainment

The Accrington Pals

A talented cast of singers and dancers perform songs from your favourite shows! Re-live wonderful classics from yester-year and experience amazing new songs from more modern shows. There’s truly something for everyone in this all-singing, all-dancing spectacular.

Accrington, in northeast Lancashire, was the smallest town to send its own ‘Pals’ Battalion to fight in the First World War. Many of them did not return. The Accrington Pals tells of the hopes and fears of some of the men going away to fight and the women and families left behind without their men. Love stories, both happy and sad, are shown alongside personal breakdown, ambition and the fight for equality in a rapidly changing world. The story is tender, funny and heart-warming, but always courageous and ultimately tragic. An amateur production in association with Samuel French Ltd

The Shell Seekers

Ding Dong

This is the story of Penelope Keeling and her family – and the passions and heartbreak that have held them together for three generations. The play begins with Penelope’s return to her Cotswold home from hospital. The story continues through the advent of three children and Penelope’s desertion by her husband, with the pull of Cornwall ever present. Based on the novel by Rosamunde Pilcher, which in 2003 was nominated as one of the Top 100 novels in the BBC’s Big Read.

By Tudor Gates Adapted for the English stage from Marc Camoletti’s play Sexe et Jalousie

Bernard discovers that his wife is having an affair with Robert. So he invites Robert and his wife to dinner. Add in a put-upon maid and a call-girl and the stage is set for a whirlwind comedy of marriage and complications galore. An amateur production in association with Samuel French Ltd
