Two One Act Plays

The Last Bread Pudding – Nick Warburton (Comedy)

The committee of an amateur drama group is meeting to discuss a new play. We notice that, strangely, the presentation of the meeting to us is reflecting the ideas put forward by the committee, making the play a demonstration as well as a discussion of those ideas. A clever and entertaining piece

  Three Tables – Dan Remmes (Dramatic Comedy)

Three Couples at various stages of their relationships are dining at a restaurant.  By the end of the evening, all three relationships have altered.

The Taming of the Shrew

William Shakespeare

In a reimagined 1590, England is a matriarchy. Baptista Minola is seeking to sell off her son Katherine to the highest bidder. Cue an explosive battle of the sexes in this electrically charged love story. Justin Audibert (Snow in Midsummer, The Jew of Malta) returns Shakespeare's fierce, energitic comedy of gender and materialism on its head to offer a fresh perspective on its portrayal of heirarchy and power.

Measure for Measure

William Shakespeare

"To whom should I complain?"

When a young novice nun is compromised by a corrupt official, who offers to save her brother from execution in return for sex, she has no idea where to turn for help. When she threatens to expose him, he tells her that no one would believe her. Shakespeare wrote this play in the early 1600s, yet it remains astonishingly resonant today.

Artistic Director, Gregory Doran, directs this new production.

Literary Margaret Atwood launches
The Testaments  (12A)
Tuesday 10 September7.30pm


Margaret Atwood

On Tuesday, September 10th, the wait is over....The Testaments, Margaret Atwood’s highly anticipated sequel to The Handmaid’s Tale, is revealed.

The momentous literary event will be celebrated with an exclusive live cinema broadcast, as Fane Productions present an evening with the Canadian novelist, poet, literary critic and inventor.

The publication of Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale in 1985 and the current, Emmy Award-winning television series have created a cultural phenomenon, as handmaids have become a symbol of women’s rights and a protest against misogyny and oppression.

Live from the London stage, Atwood will be interviewed by broadcaster and author Samira Ahmed in a conversation spanning the length of Atwood’s remarkable career, her diverse range of works, and why she has returned to her seminal handmaid story, 34 years later.

‘Dear Readers: Everything you've ever asked me about Gilead and its inner workings is the inspiration for this book. Well, almost everything! The other inspiration is the world we've been living in.’

With exclusive readings from the new book by special guests, this will be an unmissable and intimate event with Atwood, spotlighting her signature insight, humour and intellect.

The Testaments will be published worldwide on 10 September.
