ABOUT ALICE

ABOUT ALICE

Yazar: Charles LAURENCE

The play is set in London where Alice Hogan, the widow of renowned American sculptor Matthew Hogan, is having a bad birthday. She has attended her best friend’s funeral with another old friend from way back, Ned, and now finds herself involved with Peggy, a young woman from an American book publisher, and Panama, a delightful New York hustler.

Alice was her husband’s favourite model and she devoted her life to his genius, something of which Ned is rather critical. The publishers want to compile a biography of the famous sculptor but Peggy has a hidden agenda and after she has manipulated Alice into sleeping with the hustler, the secrets of Alice’s early life comes tumbling out.

Alice is nearly destroyed by the revelations and her faithful old friend Ned has to put the pieces together again and at the same time satisfy his insatiable curiosity.

It ends sort of happily with the two women facing some great adjustments to the future.

ABOUT ALICE by  will open at The Spirit Theatre in Budapest in July 2018 with the title HAPPY BIRTHDAY.

ADIEU MONSIEUR HAFFMANN

ADIEU MONSIEUR HAFFMANN

Yazar: Jean-Philippe DAGUERRE

Adieu Monsieur Haffmann takes place when Paris is occupied by Hitler’s army. In 1942, a series of anti-Jewish laws compelled Jewish owners to identify their stores as “Jewish businesses” (“entreprise juive”). As a result, many Jews transferred ownership to Gentiles in the hope of avoiding the confiscation of Jewish businesses by the occupation government. Joseph Haffmann is one such business owner. He has managed to save his wife and children by sending them to Switzerland, but he stays in Paris to save his only possession: his jewelry store. He asks Pierre, his long-time employee, to accept temporary ownership of the store, and to move into the attached apartment with his wife, Isabelle. He also asks Pierre and Isabelle to hide him from the Germans – him and a single painting by Matisse. Pierre and Isabelle, who desperately want children but cannot procreate, accept on the condition that Joseph sleep with Isabelle until she becomes pregnant.

AU MONDE

AU MONDE

Yazar : Joël POMMERAT

Dans un appartement luxueux, de très vieux hommes, doux et puissants à la fois. Aux pouvoirs aussi considérables que flous. Leur plus infime décision engendre de percutants effets. Ailleurs, souvent loin, sur le monde. Comme si cette puissance – quelques petits signes, quelques mots, ce qu’en disent les autres – révélait une autre dimension, un autre ordre que l’humain. Ordre magique (de vrais dieux) Des femmes, de jeunes filles les veillent, silencieusement admiratives. Dans ce lieu, le monde est essentiellement imaginé… mais on en parle, on y pense, on le suit, on le vit, on en jouit, quand même.

Some very old men–both powerful and sweet–are in a luxurious apartment. Their powers are enormous but hard to pin down. Their tiniest decisions have huge effects–elsewhere, often far away, in the world. It’s as though their power–those little signs or words, and what others say–have revealed another dimension, some order other than the human one. A Magical Order! (true gods!) Silently admiring, women and young girls watch over them. The world is essentially imagined in this place, yet it is talked about, thought about, followed, lived in, and is still a source of pleasure.

BU21

BU21

Yazar : Stuart SLADE

Stuart Slade’s wily, bracing play explores how six millennials are affected by a terrorist outrage that it imagines being perpetrated in a near-future London.

A passenger jet from New York is downed by a shoulder-mounted rocket-launcher, causing hundreds of deaths and horrendous devastation as it smashes into the Fulham area, its engine bouncing down the New King’s Road. In interweaving monologues, half a dozen survivors divulge their stories, bringing home both the immediate impact of the attack in their graphic eye-witness accounts of the horror and, as often reluctant members of a support group, the long-term effects of post-traumatic stress.

CHECKPOINT CHANA

She’s convinced she’s innocent, but everyone else – including her PA, Tamsin – wants her to apologise.

CRESSIDA AMONG GREEKS

CRESSIDA AMONG GREEKS

Yazar : David FOLEY

Set during the last days of the Trojan War, CRESSIDA AMONG THE GREEKS retells Shakespeare and Chaucer’s tragic love story, Troilus and Cressida. Troilus falls in love with Cressida, a young widow, and begs her uncle Pandarus to plead his cause. She resists at first, then falls in love, only to be exiled from Troy to join her traitorous father in the Greek camp. As counterpoint to their doomed romance, the Trojan royal family plays out a drama that is part domestic comedy and part political tragedy. Autocratic Hecuba, doddering Priam, and their unruly daughter Cassandra—screaming prophecies at deaf ears—watch helplessly as their city goes down in flames.

DAY OF THE LIVING

DAY OF THE LIVING

Proje Tasarım : Amy Draper ; Yazar : Juliet Gilkes Romero; Besteci : Darren Clark

An ensemble leads us into the theatre, welcoming us with songs. A conch shell sounds as we hear the verbatim testimony of trainee teacher students from Ayotzinapa Normal school in Mexico who survived the violent abduction of 43 of their classmates by men with guns. We will hear their voices throughout the play. Meanwhile, Tlaltecuhtli, Mother Earth, makes her way across the stage as we hear about ancient Mexico and how its earth was formed out of war. As the play continues, we follow the Fernández family preparing a birthday piñata and giving a very special present to ten-year-old Chavela, whose brother, Rafael, is amongst the students who have been forcibly ‘disappeared’. Chavela’s devout mother, Graciela, and Manolo, her troubled grandfather, argue about whether to turn to religion, or protest, as victims of the country’s drug war litter the town square and mass graves are found in the surrounding hills. So begins Chavela’s descent into a reality which she is forced to confront. Chavela’s grief unleashes visions which begin to invade her life. She conjures a heart pounding wrestling match, where she meets Rafael once more as a heroic Lucha Libre fighter ‘El Venado’ (the Stag), battling corrupt officials, injustice and finally the Goddess of Cocaine, Señora Blanca. As Chavela, Graciela and Manolo struggle to come to terms with injustice and corruption, they try to continue with daily life under the watchful eye of the police, drug traffickers and the dancing figure of death. Rafael was taken alive and they want him back alive. The fight for justice continues.

FEATHERS AND TEETH

FEATHERS AND TEETH

Author : Charise CASTRO SMITH

Chris’s life is over. On top of the usual problems which come with being thirteen — angst, hormones, attention from the dorky kid next door — her mother is dead, and her deluded father, Arthur, has a new girlfriend: Carol, her mother’s hospice nurse. Chris is convinced that perfectly-coiffed Carol is pure evil and actually the cause of her mother’s death, but Arthur doesn’t believe her. When Arthur runs over a mysterious creature, and the wandering corpse hatches terrifying, yet adorable, fanged and feathered monsters, Chris believes the creatures have been sent from above to help her destroy her step-mother-to-be. With the help of Hugo, her earnestly smitten German neighbor, Chris feeds the creatures Carol’s refrigerator full of hamburger meat to help them grow, but soon realizes that these little weapons are out of her hands. Who is guilty, who is innocent, who is the real murderous devil — and in the face of supernatural hunger, does it even matter? Charise Castro Smith’s Feathers and Teeth is hilarious, horrifying, and heartbreaking in equal measure, a fast-paced, incredibly gory dark comedy with a vulnerable, grief-stricken core.

Yazar : Robert L. Freedman / Müzik ve Şarkı Sözleri : Steven Lutvak

A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder is the knock-’em-dead, uproarious hit and the most-nominated show of the 2014 season. With ten Tony nominations and four wins, including Best Musical, Book, Direction and Costumes, it also earned seven Drama Desk Awards (including Best Musical), four Outer Critics Circle Awards (including Best Musical) and one Drama League Award (Best Musical).

When the low-born Monty Navarro finds out that he’s eighth in line for an earldom in the lofty D’Ysquith family, he figures his chances of outliving his predecessors are slight and sets off down a far more ghoulish path. Can he knock off his unsuspecting relatives without being caught and become the ninth Earl of Highhurst? And what of love? Because murder isn’t the only thing on Monty’s mind….

A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder is a murderous romp filled with unforgettable music, non-stop laughs and a scene-stealing role for one actor playing all eight of the doomed heirs who meet their ends in the most creative and side-splitting ways. This is a must-produce for any theatre looking for a truly original and fresh new comedy that will delight audiences and leave them begging for more.

LE PETIT CHAPERON ROUGE

LE PETIT CHAPERON ROUGE

Yazar : Joël POMMERAT

« J’ai choisi d’adapter ce conte si célèbre pour en faire une pièce de théâtre justement parce que c’est un conte qui est peut-être le symbole du conte. C’est une histoire qui a une histoire. Des générations d’enfants ont entendu ce conte. Je crois très important de raconter aux enfants des contes qui puissent les relier au temps présent et en même temps à leurs racines. Et ce conte nous raconte des choses de nos ancêtres paysans, il nous rattache à la terre. […] Les contes parlent de nos peurs d’une manière imagée : peur de l’étranger, peur du noir, peur d’être abandonné… Les contes se déroulent en général dans une atmosphère étrange qui ressemble à celle du rêve.
Aussi ils peuvent permettre d’extérioriser certaines inquiétudes et même résoudre des questions que l’on se pose. C’est pourquoi, il existe de nombreuses versions du conte. Des auteurs contemporains en proposent de très personnelles. Il existe aussi de nombreuses illustrations de ce conte, des films de cinéma et d’animation. »

« I chose to adapt this famous tale into a play precisely because it is perhaps a tale which symbolizes all tales. It is a story with a history. Generations of children have heard this tale. I think it is very important to tell children tales which connect them to the present as well as to their roots. And this tale, which tells us about our farming ancestors, connects us to the earth. […] Tales talk about our fears through symbolic imagery  about the fear of strangers, the fear of the dark, the fear of being abandoned. Tales usually take place in a strange, dreamlike atmosphere. They also help us to externalize certain fears and even to resolve questions we have. That’s why tales come in different versions. Contemporary authors have created some very personal ones. There are also many illustrations of this tale in feature-length and animated films. »

RETURNING TO HAIFA

RETURNING TO HAIFA

Yazar : Ghassan KANAFANI / Adaptasyon : Ismail KHALIDI & Naomi WALLACE

A compelling story of two families – one Palestinian, one Israeli – forced by history into an intimacy they didn’t choose.

In 1948, Palestinian couple Said and Safiyya fled their home during the Nakba. Now, in the aftermath of the 1967 Six Day War, the borders are open for the first time in twenty years, and the couple dare to return back to their home in Haifa. They are prepared – of course – to find someone else living where they once did. Yet nothing could prepare Said and Safyya for the encounter they both desire and dread: the son they had to leave behind, and what he has now become…

Coinciding with the 70th anniversaries of both the Nakba or “catastrophe” – the mass dispossession of the Palestinians in 1948 – and the foundation of the State of Israel, Returning to Haifa is a unique, deeply moving play of suspense and heartbreak, where humanity and vision combine with a frontline immediacy.

THE TAILOR MADE MAN

Yazar : Claudio MACOR

The play is based on a true story of love, success and betrayal. Set in the 1930s, the drama unfolds around William Haines, the silent screen star who was gay and refused to marry a woman and give up his life-long partner, Jimmie Shields. A powerful story about the Hollywood studio system and its hypocrisy, but above all it is the story of Billy and Jimmie’s turbulent, passionate love affair that survived and lasted over 50 years.

TUYAUTERIE

TUYAUTERIE

Yazar : Philippe BLASBAND

Ça commence… comment dire… comme une scène classique d’un certain genre de film pour adultes, vous voyez ?

Un plombier a terminé son travail et sa cliente veut le payer «en nature». Le plombier n’est pas contre, mais avant de recevoir son dû, il veut qu’elle réponde à une question : « Pourquoi ? ».

Et alors, très logiquement, ils se mettent à parler de Dieu, de clé Allen, de divorce, de la vie envisagée comme un échec absolu…enfin, de toutes ces choses dont on parle, que ce soit dans la vie ou dans un film porno…

La rencontre se mue en joute verbale où les hormones décochent quelques vérités et confessions déshabillant les deux âmes solitaires.

Dans cette franche comédie, le verbe et la verve de Philippe Blasband sont empreints d’un érotisme doucement ironique. Commençant par un strip-tease et s’achevant comme un conte de fées, ce couple nous guide dans l’intimité des entrelacs de nos sentiments, nos pulsions et nos instincts. Un dépannage rutilant d’humour !

WHITE GUY ON THE BUS

WHITE GUY ON THE BUS

Yazar : Bruce GRAHAM

Ray and Roz are a white, liberal couple living in the safe, staid suburbs of Philadelphia. He is a financial consultant who makes “rich people richer”. She is a passionate teacher who commutes every day to educate the mainly black students of an inner-city school. On the face of it, life runs smoothly. But Ray seems to hanker after change. He leaves his Mercedes in the drive, and takes to riding the public bus through the African-American neighbourhoods of the city – the only white guy on the bus. Ray becomes a regular on the same route as Shatique – a young, black single mother who is studying to become a nurse, and determined to make a different life for her 9-year-old son. They strike up a relationship. But what does Ray really want from Shatique?

Bruce Graham’s excoriating and shocking play blows open the racial fault-lines of Trump’s America. With an all too familiar resonance here in the UK, it questions us all – what deals are we willing to make, and with which devils?

WISH LIST

WISH LIST

Yazar : Katherine SOPER

Tamsin is 19 but she walks like an old woman. With anxiety etched across her pale face and her shoulders stooped, it is as if she is carrying the cares of the world. No wonder. By night, she looks after her 17-year-old brother, Dean, caught in a vicious cycle of OCD which means he can’t leave the house. She must try to negotiate the labyrinthine benefits system that declares Dean fit for work even though his obsessive behaviour means he’s seldom out of the bathroom. By day, Tamsin works a 10-hour shift packing in an online warehouse. Over the workers an Orwellian management sign breezily exhorts: “Work. Enjoy. Improve.”

Since their mother died, Tamsin and Dean – both barely more than children – have been left to fend for themselves, and their lives have become an increasingly Kafkaesque nightmare. It’s not just the lack of money that wears Tamsin down, it’s the lack of control over her own life. Others – the benefits bureaucrats, the faceless management of the online business – make the decisions that hold sway over her daily survival. The dehumanising job on a zero-hours contract where even the toilet breaks are timed is soul-destroying. But she can’t do without it.

Katherine Soper’s debut play won the 2015 Bruntwood prize for playwriting.
