OUR 2018 PRODUCTIONS

THE DRESSER by Ronald Harwood

 

4th - 7th July 2018 - 7.30pm

Sir Robert Martin Theatre, Loughborough University

 

One fateful night in a small English regional theatre during World War II, a troupe of touring actors are staging a production of Shakespeare's King Lear. Bombs are falling, sirens are wailing, the curtain is up in an hour but Sir, the last of the great, but dying, breed of English actor-managers and who is playing Lear, is nowhere to be seen. His dresser Norman scrambles to keep the production alive but will Sir turn up in time? And if he does, will he be able to perform that night? During its long West End run the play starred Tom Courtenay and FreddieJones andwas then a successful film starring Courtenay and Albert Finney.

                                     A Midsummer Night’s Dream

                         at Bawdon Lodge 15th - 18th August 2018

 

 

On a Midsummer’s night, four young lovers find themselves entranced and entrapped in an enchanted forest where sprites lurk and fairies rule.

“I have had a most rare vision. I had a dream, past the wit of man to say what dream it was…”

In association with Bawdon Lodge Farm, Shakespeare’s best-loved comedy is brought to the open-air stage by The Festival Players in this all-female ensemble production. Through the use of text, music, and dance the company will introduce you to an enchanted world of dreams and passion, where the powerful spirits of a midsummer’s night will put a spell on you.

  IT'S A WONDERFUL LIFE: A LIVE RADIO PLAY by Joe Landry 

2nd - 6th December 2018 - 7.30pm and 2.30pm Sunday Matinee

The Victoria Room @ Loughborough Town Hall

 

Inspired by the classic American film, It's a Wonderful Life is about the life of George Bailey, a generous and well-meaning man who has become too downcast and tired to continue living. It will take help from a lovable angel to show George what life would be like if he wasn't born for George to have a change of heart and understand the true spirit of Christmas.

 

This new stage version, performed as a 1940's live radio broadcast in front of a studio audience, is fast becoming America's favourite new festive tradition and has been named one of the top ten most-produced plays in the country.
