Once more, when I see the results of our programming presented in the season’s brochure, I am struck by the breadth available to our audiences and participants, both in terms of live work and film. Starting with the drama programme in both houses, and moving on to the ballet, the opera, and contemporary dance from Jasmin Vardimon, our professional live programme offers fantastic quality without the need to travel miles. This season, we are delighted to be working for the first time with Fiori Musicali, to present a series of three events, culminating in a grand finale evening concert of English baroque music in November. And look out for our brand new Laughing Boy comedy nights throughout the season, bringing you the best stand-up comedians on the UK comedy circuit!

WELCOME

WELCOME

Of course, the highlight of our Autumn season is always our fun-filled, musical Christmas adventure. This year we are excited to be working with Paul Boyd, writer of our 2008 Christmas Show Alice In Wonderland, and can’t wait to present our all-singing, all-dancing production of Sleeping Beauty this Christmas! It’s guaranteed to have you in a spin! We’re going digital! Our customers’ film experience will be completely transformed in September, after the installation of digital projection equipment – we are very excited to announce a mini film festival in both the Main House and the Studio, where a variety of classic films, all of which are digitally remastered, will be shown. A theatre experience is more than just seeing the show, and we are delighted to unwrap plans for a change to the way we create and serve food, both at lunchtimes and pre-show – over the summer we are planning to upgrade a part of the bar, and to completely redesign our menus, so that our lunches and pre-show food will be served in front of you, the customers – watch this space and hopefully when you visit during the Autumn you will thoroughly approve of the results.

Tom and Simon have been mates since school-shared everything homework, cars, girlfriends - you name it, they’ve both had their hands on it. But whilst Sy has always played it safe, Tom likes to push things to extremes... with occasionally violent repercussions. After an ill-advised evening with the wife of local nutcase Mad Mark Flynn, Sy is starting to worry if Tom might have bitten off more than he can chew. He needs protection. He needs to get out of town. And then he meets Foster. A former boxer with a left hook to die for (or from), Foster takes Tom under his wing. But is there more to his interest than meets the eye? And why won’t he talk about his past? Wed 12 Sep, 7.45pm £12.50 (£10.50) Special Offer – See page 7 for details Studio Genre: Drama

Neon Quartet Neon Quartet is a relatively new collaboration of 4 prominent jazz musicians. Stan Sulzmann is a wonderfully lyrical saxophonist and a respected composer. Kit Downes, composer of haunting tunes, is a pianist. Jim Hart is one of the most exciting players of vibes and marimba to emerge for many years, while Tim Giles is one of the most ingenious and musical drummers on the scene. They play music which can be punchy and rhythmical or melodic and delicate. They are 4 talented musicians, but Neon Quartet is so much more than the sum of its parts.

The Future Is Unwritten present

Fever Pitch From the first moment through the turnstiles at Highbury, Nick Hornby was hooked… This hugely successful play, adapted from the bestselling book, digs deep into the mind of an obsessed football fan. Hornby’s story of his Arsenal fixation is also a tale of family, football, class, identity and joy. Harking back to the days when football was the people’s game rather than the plaything of corporate sponsors and oligarchs, Fever Pitch is fast, funny, exhilarating theatre. www.the-future-is-unwritten.co.uk “A Gem” The Observer ‘‘Unsparingly Funny” Time Out

By Bertolt Brecht Translated by Lee Hall Directed by Tom Neill

By Hugh Whitmore

Two ideologies collide in a conflict that stretches across a continent and threatens the balance of world power. In its midst, one woman, her three children by her side, sees an opportunity to survive, a way to profit from the slaughter by selling goods to both sides. And the time is about to come when, in her quest for material gain, she must make the ultimate sacrifice.

The Jacksons live opposite The Krogers, believing them to be a convivial Canadian couple, and their closest friends. Then a mysterious stranger arrives and persuades the Jacksons to allow their house to be used as a surveillance post. In the nightmare months that follow, the Jacksons’ decent happy life is shattered as the truth about their much loved friends is gradually revealed.

Regarded by many as the greatest play of the 20th century and even the greatest anti-war play of all time, Mother Courage and Her Children asks fundamental questions about the our beliefs have on the world and the role of ideology in society and world affairs.

Supported by the Friends of The Castle

Brought to the stage by highly acclaimed Blackeyed Theatre with breathtaking ensemble performances and live music, Mother Courage and Her Children is a truly unforgettable theatrical experience.

Farm Boy

By Michael Morpurgo

Adapted and directed by Daniel Buckroyd

It sometimes felt as though time had stood still on the family farm – swallows nesting in the eaves, the old Fordson Tractor quietly rusting in the back of the barn, Grandpa still tending his chickens – that is, until the summer his grandson finished school and came to stay, and the old man started telling stories of what it had been like on the farm when he was a boy. The compelling sequel to the award-winning War Horse is a moving account of the changing face of the English countryside and a beautifully-crafted reminder that stories really can reach out across the generations. This magical tale of the bonds linking grandfather to grandson and ultimately both to the land has once more been brought to life by New Perspectives Theatre Company in their delightful touring show combining drama, storytelling and original music.

Creation

After-Images

The Line Between...

Using erasure and multi-layering, Ann builds up shimmering veils of colour with a deliberate ambiguity of space. Ann’s mixed media work has evolved from her interest in the natural world and an ongoing search for the meaning of beauty. She invites the viewer to make a journey around the canvas and to enjoy the beauty of colour, shape and form.

Colin’s paintings are based on the things he sees around him every day, at home, in town and on the road, but drastically altered. In his sketchbooks, their shapes are observed, re-imagined, distorted and transformed. By the time he comes to paint them, they are unrecognisable. What arrives on canvas is a strange, surreal after-image.

Sea and sky… reality and dream… past and present… truth and lie.

October Location: Gallery

October Location: Exhibition Wall

From the very beginning our whole world has been delineated - ‘God saw that the light was good, and he separated the light from the darkness.’ Without lines of separation we have no frame of reference and no structure to our ways of seeing.

“Through my art I aim to produce an aesthetic awareness for the viewer”. Ann Saxton

September Location: Exhibition Wall


VISUAL ARTS Sunsets The summer sun is sinking low; Only the tree-tops redden and glow: Only the weathercock on the spire Of the neighbouring church is a flame of fire; All is in shadow below. Henry Wordsworth Longfellow

Claire Pascall This exhibition is a culmination of Claire’s work over the last year. The work is varied and experimental. She has worked with various restricted colour palettes, broken image and simplified some images to their basic shapes. Claire has worked on canvas, paper and board in mixed media. The subject matter is in her usual line of trees, figures and landscape.

Artist and photographer Mark Pacan presents a photographic exhibition of this amazing atmospheric kaleidoscopic occurrence.

Rushden and District Raunds Art Group Photographic Society Exhibition of Artwork Nature, Places and Faces This exhibition by one of the oldest photographic societies in Northamptonshire is a celebration of the diversity and talent of its members. Its intention is to inspire the visitor to appreciate photography as an art form that demonstrates the beauty of the natural world, the built environment and the human body.

This exhibition of work is produced by a friendly group of enthusiastic people with a common interest in drawing and painting for pleasure in various mediums. The group are all at different stages of artistic skill and help each other with ideas and suggestions. The group meets every other Tuesday Evening at the St John’s Ambulance Rooms in Raunds.

The RDPS meets at Irchester Village Hall each Tuesday and welcomes everyone with an interest in photography.
