    NT Encore: Obsession
     Tuesday 6th June 7pm
    Jude Law (The Young Pope, Closer, The Talented Mr Ripley) stars in the stage production of Obsession, broadcast live from the Barbican Theatre in London. Ivo van Hove (NT Live: A View from the Bridge, Hedda Gabler) directs this new stage adaptation of Luchino Visconti’s 1943 film.

    Gino is a drifter, down-at-heel and magnetically handsome. At a road side restaurant he encounters husband and wife, Giuseppe and Giovanna. Irresistibly attracted to each other, Gino and Giovanna begin a fiery affair and plot to murder her husband. But, in this chilling tale of passion and destruction, the crime only serves to tear them apart.

    The stage production of Obsession is produced by Barbican Theatre Productions Limited, London and Toneelgroep Amsterdam; co-commissioned by Wiener Festwochen and Les Théâtres de la Ville de Luxembourg; co-produced by Holland Festival and David Binder Productions; and supported by the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands.

    Comedy Triple Bill

    (Three fast-paced, one act plays giving fun-seeking audiences a full and entertaining evening)

    Directed by Adam Morley
    Produced by Claire Bibby
    “beautifully delivered punch lines” “hilarious” “great timing” “a hoot!”

    (Review excerpts from our previous Comedy Triple Bill to ur)

    Last Tango in Little Grimley (by David Tristram)

    Membership of the local amateur dramatic society has dwindled to four and the audiences aren't much bigger. If they don't come up with some rent money soon, they're going to be thrown out. Time for dramatic action. "There's only one thing that sells tickets these days" argues the Chairwoman. "Sex!" But how will the locals react to the promise of a sizzling sex comedy? All is revealed in this hilarious play and thus begins the chaotic build-up to an evening of extraordinary home-grown drama - an evening the locals would never forget!

    A Jolly Sinister Jape (by Elliot Strange) A pastiche 1920's thriller with a plot that defies description. This is Famous Five fun for adults as Stubby, Ophelia, Biffy and Fatty find themselves trapped in a mysterious house during a thunderstorm. Is this someone's idea of a jape? Or is something far more sinister going on? All is revealed in this madcap comedy set in the Roaring Twenties. It's fast and furious with a liberal sprinkling of hilarious period slang, along with mystery and thrills.

    Last Panto in Little Grimley (by David Tristram) Sequel to Last Tango in Little Grimley, Last Panto in Little Grimley features the same incompetent characters. The society members tackle the Christmas Pantomime with predictable riotous results. It's Dick Whittington...but not as you know it!

    Jack the Ripper: the musical

    Tuesday 11th - Saturday 15th July, 7.45pm

    Jack The Ripper was adapted for the musical stage in 1974 and features a score by leading actor Ron Pember and book and lyrics by Pember with Denis De Marne. The musical reconstruction of the incidents relating to the historic East End murders of 1888 was told through the company of a Whitechapel Music Hall, a device that cleverly presented an atmospheric commentary on the murders as opposed to a historic re-enactment. 


    Tickets £5 - available directly from the school
