Snake in the Grass
 
A Lindley Players Production

Wednesday 19th - Saturday 22nd September, 7.45pm

Annabel returns to the family home where her younger sister, Miriam, still lives, shortly after their abusive father's death. She is met by Alice Moody, the nurse to Annabel's late father. After some short-lived pleasantries, Alice states she was dismissed by her sister, Miriam, not for inefficiency as Annabel believes, but because she was trying to stop Miriam finishing her father off. These claims are backed up by a letter from their father expressing his fears, and, knowing the will was changed in Annabel's favour, Alice demands £100,000 in compensation.

Alan Ayckbourn's black comedy/thriller explores wills, wells, guests and ghosts in what makes for a eerie evening's enjoyment.

By popular demand we are pleased to welcome back to the Playhouse Theatre - ‘The One and Only Rat Pack Show!’

Mention Las Vegas and you think of the Rat Pack and with Neil Gordon as Frank Sinatra and Darren Charles as Sammy Davis Jnr. (direct from the West End show) together with Whitstable’s own Neil Duncan as Dean Martin, you have a fantastic tribute to the famous three and an evening filled with Music, Memories and Mischief!

These guys look like the real thing, sound just like them and have the mannerisms and fun on stage that made this show so special.

Supported by the fabulous Black Tie Swing Band, this Rat Pack Show really is the ‘Top of the Heap!’

NT Encore: King Lear
 
Tuesday 2nd October, 7pm
 
Broadcast live from London’s West End, see Ian McKellen’s ‘extraordinarily moving portrayal’ (Independent) of King Lear in cinemas.
 
Chichester Festival Theatre’s production received five-star reviews for its sell-out run, and transfers to the West End for a limited season. Jonathan Munby directs this contemporary retelling of Shakespeare’s tender, violent, moving and shocking play.
 
Considered by many to be the greatest tragedy ever written, King Lear sees two ageing fathers – one a King, one his courtier – reject the children who truly love them.
 
Their blindness unleashes a tornado of pitiless ambition and treachery, as family and state are plunged into a violent power struggle with bitter ends. Photography (Ian McKellen) by Andy Gotts

Tuesday 23rd - Saturday 27th October, 7:45pm

Expect two hours of blissfully uncomplicated silliness in this classic farce set in 1944 in the vicarage of Merton-cum-Middlewick. Described as arguably the funniest farce ever written, it's outrageously contrived plot transforms, with madcap energy, a preposterous situation into spiralling chaotic hilarity.

A cast of the Lindley's finest farceurs pile on the misunderstandings, mistaken identities and pratfalls and with it, the laughs.

See How They Run! is an official 'umbrella' event for the Canterbury Festival 2018.

The Madness of George III
by Alan Bennett

Multi-award-winning drama The Madness of George III will be broadcast live to cinemas, in National Theatre Live’s first ever broadcast from Nottingham Playhouse.

Written by one of Britain’s best-loved playwrights Alan Bennett (The History Boys, The Lady in the Van), this epic play was also adapted into a BAFTA Award-winning film following its premiere on stage in 1991.

The cast of this new production includes Olivier Award-winners Mark Gatiss (Sherlock, Wolf Hall, NT Live Coriolanus) in the title role, and Adrian Scarborough (Gavin and Stacey, Upstairs Downstairs, After the Dance).

It’s 1786 and King George III is the most powerful man in the world. But his behaviour is becoming increasingly erratic as he succumbs to fits of lunacy. With the King’s mind unravelling at a dramatic pace, ambitious politicians and the scheming Prince of Wales threaten to undermine the power of the Crown, and expose the fine line between a King and a man.
