Telling the best stories

Winter 2017

Welcome Our winter season is like a festive selection box - full to the brim with delicious theatre, comedy, new writing, cinema and community performance - and we’re inviting you to tuck in! Stuff and Nonsense light-up half-term with their eccentric puppetry in a re-potted version of children’s story The Enormous Turnip! As the seasons turn, the trees change colour and the skies become snowy, Little Angel Theatre and Tall Stories delight audiences with their wintery adventures Me and Snow Dragon; and Half Moon’s intimate show Leaf, offers a heartwarming sensory experience for under 3s. Adults can enjoy an evening of conversation with Michael Portillo and men be warned, comedian Kathy Lette takes us on a raucous Girls’ Night Out. Music fans will be thrilled to see the captivating Mugenkyo Taiko Drummers back, whose thundering rhythms last shook our stage in 2013.



In November we host two Berry favourites: Blackeyed Theatre with their chilling twist on Robert Louis Stevenson’s The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde; and our very own Youth Theatre with a piece of new writing inspired by the questions children ask. No Berry winter season would be complete without a festive feast for families, and this December we are delighted to be working with Pickled Image to bring you just that. Santa’s Little Trolls will (hopefully) bring the snow and (definitely) the silliness, to guarantee we all have an unforgettable Christmas! Sacha Lee Artistic Director theberrytheatre theberrytheatre theberrytheatre The Berry Theatre is managed under agency by Eastleigh Borough Council.

Thursday 14th to Sunday 31st December Pickled Image Ltd and richardsonprm presents

Santa’s Little Trolls Jeremy really, really loves Christmas. All he wants is for each Christmas to be perfect; mince pies, stockings, mistletoe and especially, (and this is the icing on the Christmas cake)… lots and lots of SNOW! But, who exactly brings the snow? Santa? Rudolph? Jack Frost? No, it’s the one job left in the heavy hands of the Trolls of Winter. However, the trolls are fed up with never getting any of the credit. It’s always those cheery, little elves and that red nosed reindeer celebrated at Christmas, while the hard working trolls miss out. Not once have they been on an advent calendar or featured in a carol, so this year, unless they get their ugly mugs on at least one Christmas card, there will be NO SNOW! With silliness, laughter, stunning puppets (and maybe a humbug or two), Pickled Image (Fireside Tales with Granddad and Wolf Tales) present this magical Christmas extravaganza for all the famiy.

“Protesting puppets, perky people, pinch of panto, perfect!” – Audience Member School Matinees and Relaxed Performances School matinee and relaxed performances will be available on the following dates:

Little Angel Theatre presents

Stuff and Nonsense Theatre Company presents

Me... A Little Angel Theatre production based on the book by Emma Dodd published by The Templar Company Limited. The world is a very big place, especially for a tiny baby penguin who is just finding his feet. The shimmering stars and glistening snow spin around our little hero, while the mountains tower high and the wind rushes to and fro. And although baby penguin may be small his family know he’s the biggest thing of all. This early year’s favourite is a lovely and touching story about a parent’s love for their child.

“ ideal introduction to theatre for little people, and a welcome balm for the soul for bigger people too.” HHHH The Stage

The Enormous Turnip For seedlings aged 3 -10 and their families. Living in their tiny shed amongst the

Help us pull The Enormous Turnip out of the ground before it takes over the planet! This re-potted version of the famous children’s story is full of unswerving energy, live music and eccentric puppetry.

What is the sky made of? By Hannah Torrance Questions, questions, questions. The children always have something to ask and adults never quite understand. “What is the sky made of?” How hard it is to answer a simple question? But then the aliens arrive and they have questions of their own… The Berry Youth Theatre’s 8-11 year olds present a piece of new writing inspired by the questions children ask, the answers we give them and the truth that exists in between.

The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde

by Robert Louis Stevenson · Adapted for the stage by Nick Lane

Doctor Henry Jekyll is a good man. Successful within his field and respected by his peers, he’s close to a neurological discovery that will change the face of medical science forever. However, his methods are less than ethical, and when a close friend and colleague threatens to expose and destroy his work, Jekyll is forced to experiment on himself, whereupon something goes very wrong…or very right. A thrilling adaptation of Robert Louis Stevenson’s dark psychological fantasy, that immerses you in the myth and mystery of 19th Century London’s fog-bound streets where love, betrayal and murder lurk at every chilling twist and turn. Gripping, stylish and thought-provoking, this is unmissable theatre. Go on...treat your dark side!

Tickets: £12 / £10 concessions / £8 school group booking (buy 10 tickets and get the 11th free) Suitable for ages 11+ Running time: approx. 2 hours (including interval)

An Evening with

Lakin McCarthy presents

Michael Portillo: “Life: A Game of Two Halves”

Kathy Lette’s Girls’ Night Out

It took Michael Portillo little more than 10 years to get a seat in the Commons and then rise in power and esteem to a point where he was a favoured leader of his party and possible future PM.

“Women are each other’s human wonder bras – uplifting, supportive and making each other look bigger and better.” So says Kathy Lette, funny, feminist author, who invites you to her new show.

Since leaving the house a decade ago Michael has endeared himself to many with his obvious respect for solid workmanship and creative energy, as found in our great Victorian Railways. A historian at heart, he has used a Victorian railway guide to take millions of viewers on a historical voyage of discovery throughout the UK, Ireland, the USA and Europe. Listen to his extraordinary story, told with a light almost “stand up” touch.

It’s a psychological strip tease taking us from Puberty Blues to Menopause Blues, with tales of love, lust, men, marriage, pregnancy, childbirth, mastitis, sexist bosses, teenage-daughterwrangling, ageing, toy boys, making the Queen laugh, hiding Julian Assange in her attic, tongue kissing Prince William and Close Encounters of the George Clooney Kind, en route. So, grab your girlfriends and come along. Wit, warmth and full frontal frankness, guaranteed. (Men, attend at your own risqué!)

Yerma (Encore screening) A young woman is driven to the unthinkable by her desperate desire to have a child in Simon Stone’s radical production of Lorca’s achingly powerful masterpiece. The unmissable theatre phenomenon sold out at the Young Vic with critics describing Piper’s lead performance as “spellbinding” (The Evening Standard), “astonishing” (iNews) and “devastatingly powerful” (The Daily Telegraph). Set in contemporary London, Piper’s portrayal of a woman in her thirties desperate to conceive builds with elemental force to a staggering, shocking climax.
