20,000 LEAGUES UNDER THE SEAS
Based on Jules Verne’s landmark works of science fiction, this critically acclaimed adaptation reveals the true history of Professor Morgan Aronnax’s adventures as a prisoner of Captain Nemo, master of the submersible war machine, Nautilus. This adaptation casts Professor Aronnax as a woman who has hidden her gender from the public at the behest of the French minister of science and is accompanied by her loyal friend, Brigette Conseil. At the end of the American Civil War, a handful of Union Army POW castaways in the South Pacific discover Nemo—long thought dead—still haunting his now-crippled vessel. A debate arises between the men and the aged captain: in his years-long private war for revenge, was Nemo justified? Morally responsible? “Did I do right—or did I do wrong?” Launched by that question, the play chronicles the interwoven histories of Aronnax and Nemo—their clashes of will confronting monsters without and within—as they voyage beneath the world’s oceans to the unclaimed tundra of the South Pole.

CRY IT OUT
Four months ago, Jessie was a corporate lawyer with a glamorous Manhattan life. Today, she is in dirty yoga pants, covered in breast milk, trying to comfort a screaming newborn. Isolated in a sleepy Long Island suburb while her commuter husband works long hours, Jessie is desperate to talk to anyone besides Food Network. So when she spies a fellow new mom and neighbor, Lina, at the local Stop & Shop, she vaults over the cantaloupe to introduce herself. Happy to have found each other, the two moms agree to meet for coffee during naptime in the sweet spot behind their adjoining yards where both their baby monitors get reception, and a fast friendship is born. Jessie and Lina may be from vastly different financial backgrounds—Jessie is Ivy-educated and of the manor born; Lina has a night-school nursing degree and terrible credit—but they have one huge thing in common: they’ve been cracked open by the love they feel for their newborns. One coffee quickly becomes a daily coffee, as Jessie and Lina laugh through the highs and lows of motherhood. But their intimacy is punctured when a stranger who lives in the mansion up on the cliff appears in the yard, asking if they would include his wife, a new mom who is having “a hard time,” in their coffee klatch. Reluctantly, the duo tries to become a trio, but with very mixed—and surprising—results. After all, this is a town where the haves and the have-nots live in very close company; up on the cliff is Sands Point, one of the most expensive Great Gatsby-esque neighborhoods in the whole country. How could that woman possibly be having a “hard time”? A comedy with dark edges, Cry It Out takes an honest look at the absurdities of being home with a baby, the power of female friendship, the dilemma of going back to work, and the effect class has on parenthood in America.

Fringe Benefits is a comedy for three men and four women. Isobel and Colin, Jim and Brenda, are arranging to go on their annual holiday to Torremolinos. However, both the men and the women have decided (separately) they would rather not go: the women because they are sick of it, the men because according to Jim, two very attractive office girls would appreciate the pleasure of their company – in East Croydon. Both the women and the men suggest plans are changed, but neither sex divulges the real reason. Complications inevitably ensue – particularly after the arrival of not only Fiona and Doreen (the two office girls) but also of young Richard who, having a preference for (as he not very tactfully puts it) “older women”, comes in search of Brenda – and then turns to Isobel as being “older still”.
The action of the play takes place in the Hudson’s maisonette in Baron’s Court, London.
Fringe Benefits was first staged under the title A Far Better Husband with the legendary British comedian Ronnie Corbett on a UK National Tour in 1975 and then at the Whitehall Theatre, London, from August 26th, 1976 with the popular actor Brian Rix and the title Fringe Benefits.

50% of the refugees in Europe are minors, and many of them are unaccompanied. Children and young people that come to Europe are moved by the instinct to survive, and are confronted with a system that protects them only temporarily. According to the German asylum law, no unaccompanied minor can be deported. In other words, children are safe until they are eighteen. But what future are we giving to these children if they are afraid to become adults?
Futureland is a science-fiction documentary piece with teenagers between 14 and 18 years old, who came to Germany by themselves from Afghanistan, Syria, Somalia, Guinea, Bangladesh. They crossed the world by foot, by boat, hidden in a truck and sometimes by a plane. Now they live in Berlin surrounded by social workers, youth welfare employees, tutors, and other young people like them, all coming from very different cultures.
They are teenagers who landed in a new world where they don’t know the rules. They are in a period of grace: they can stay but they don’t know for how long. They do constant auditions to prove that they deserve asylum, a chance in school, a place in a group of friends. They are in between cultures, in between children and adult and in between past, present and future looking for their own identity. Futureland brings together different visions of what is to come – born out of the imagination of those who have experienced more than many of us in a lifetime.
“‘Futureland’ ist ein erzählerisches, musikalisches, berührend humanes und im Kern unbeirrt optimistisches Stück für Jugendliche und alle sonst, die wissen wollen, was Wörter wie ‘Geflüchtete’ oder ‘Migranten’ oder ‘Asylbewerber’ und dergleichen an Erfahrungswelt deckeln.” (Christian Rakow, nachtkritik) – “Lola Arias […] wählt einen sehr klugen Weg, um die Lebenssituation ihrer Protagonistinnen und Protagonisten erfahrbar zu machen. Im Vordergrund stehen nicht die Schicksale und Leidenswege – obwohl sie präsent sind –, sondern die Aufnahmeprozeduren und Bürokratie-Parcours, die Geflüchtete durchlaufen.” (Patrick Wildermann, Tagesspiegel) – “Ein rasantes, witziges und bewegendes Stück […], das einen angesichts der Präsentation der Jugendlichen voller Rührung und Bewunderung zurücklässt.”– Inga Dreyer, taz

I LOVE TO EAT
Before Julia Child and long before today’s proliferation of cooking shows, there was James Beard, the first TV chef. He brought a love for fine cooking (and a sense of humor) to the small screen in 1946 and helped establish an American cuisine based on fresh ingredients. Famous for quips like, “If ever I had to practice cannibalism, I might manage if there were enough tarragon around,” Beard went on to become America’s first “foodie,” and the award bearing his name is still the prize most coveted by chefs across the country. Larger than life (literally and metaphorically), American culinary icon James Beard was a complex, entertaining, beloved and frustrating friend and mentor to many. Openly gay even though his primary audience was middle-America housewives, Beard always kept his phone number listed and famously took calls from anyone anytime who needed a little cooking advice. I Love to Eat (a love story with food) invites you to meet the man described as “the face and belly of American gastronomy” in this solo play that imagines a late night in Beard’s Greenwich Village home where he shares recipes and cooking tips, gossips, spills secrets, fights loneliness, talks to his best pal Julia Child on the phone, sings a song and even reenacts some of the wilder moments from his landmark 1946 television show, in which he infamously shared the screen with a certain cow named Elsie … A few lucky audience members also get to dine on one of Beard’s signature hors d’oeuvres—lovingly prepared right in front of us as part of the play.

It’s about boys wrestling with the difference between love and violence, and the fires lit by their fathers’ catastrophes.

LOVE AND MARRIAGE
It’s a case of two’s company and three’s a crowd in this irresistible romantic comedy.
Long term players on the merry-go-round of matrimony, Tony and Truth have come through 20 years together to be strong contenders for the perfect couple. They can surely compete with friends Gerry and Anne, who think money can buy them love, but with the very married and very flirtatious Bill in the picture, will their vows of love, honour and obey still count for something or have they become a hollow promise?
Wed lock or wedded bliss? Ball and chain or hearts and flowers? Smart and wonderfully funny, with a bittersweet veneer and characters that ring incredibly true, LOVE AND MARRIAGE is a distinctly modern take on married life that will touch everyone who has ever said or contemplated ‘I Do’!
Tony believes that honesty is the best policy in marriage. It’s a philosophy that has earned him marital stability with Ruth for twenty years. He may have had some dodgy times with his business, he may be feeling a few rheumatic twinges but he’s in the prime of life, isn’t he? Bill’s motto for a lasting marriage is to lie to his wife every day. She knows he’s a ladies man but she loves him anyway. Then there’s Gerry and Anne. Gerry is rich and successful. But can money buy them love?
Tony’s equilibrium takes a knock when he gets a call to say Gerry and Anne are in London and want to come over. Tony will have to cancel his golfing practice with Bill, which gives Bill the excuse he’s been waiting for. Ruth has something she needs to tell Tony. But how will he react? Could this be the end of at least one beautiful friendship?
Donald Churchill’s comedy is a funny and poignant look at relationships and what really makes couples stay together.
LOVE AND MARRIAGE was first staged at Greenwich Theatre under the title THE PERFORMING HUSBAND with a cast that included the popular actors Pauline Yates as Ruth and Ronald Hines as Tony.
Adam Faith, one of Britain’s top pop stars who had a string of 11 top 20 hits starred in a UK National Tour of LOVE AND MARRIAGE in 2003. Unfortunately, during the tour Adam died of a heart attack in the early hours of the morning, a young woman more than thirty years younger was in bed with him. Subsequently, Leslie Grantham, star of the BBC drama series EASTENDERS, took over the role of Tony in the National Tour.
The first foreign language production of LOVE AND MARRIAGE was in Slovakia.
LOVE AND MARRIAGE is written for three actors, TONY, 42, RUTH, an elegant woman of 40 and BILL, 43. There is also ANNE a non-speaking role. It should be possible for a female member of stage management to appear in the role.

ME AND JEZEBEL
This funny, poignant piece traces Fuller’s true-life account of the events of summer 1985, when screen legend, Bette Davis, came to the Fuller’s home in Connecticut to stay for one night and ended up staying for a month.
It all starts when a mutual friend brings Bette Davis to Elizabeth Fuller’s house for dinner. Davis calls the next day to thank Fuller for the lovely dinner (although the chicken was a bit raw), and to ask if she could possibly stay with her for a couple of days (no more than three) while a hotel strike runs its course in New York City. Fuller, a life-long fan, can hardly refuse. But trouble soon begins as Davis arrives with a station wagon full of belongings and, complaining that the front stoop needs work, moves right in, Davis, quickly soon dominates the lives of Elizabeth and her husband, John, and their young son, Christopher, who begins imitating Davis’ tones and worse, her language; as does Elizabeth, who desperately wants to form a real friendship with her idol and show her they are kindred spirits. Elizabeth tells Davis stories of how she and her grandmother, Old Ma, used to go to Davis’s double features and write her fan letters. Almost oblivious to the Fuller family, Davis decides what they will have for dinner, when they will go to the beach and plainly speaks her mind on everything from child-rearing and spiritualism to Paul Newman and, of course, Joan Crawford. As the days progress, it becomes clear that Davis thrives on conflict and high tension, and that she is only truly happy when she is stirring things up. The month vacillates between highs – watching JEZEBEL on the late movie together – and lows – when John threatens to move out if Davis doesn’t leave. Then, on the 32nd day of her stay, the hotel strike ends, and Davis departs as quickly as she arrived. She leaves behind a gracious thank you letter and, as Bette Davis herself might have said, one hell of a good story.
ME AND JEZEBEL was produced at the Actor’s Playhouse, in New York City, on December 7, 1994 with Elizabeth Fuller playing herself and Louise DuArt as Bette Davis. Earlier in August 1994, the part of Bette Davis was played by Randy Allen, at The Ballroom, in New York City. The play has been produced extensively through the US. There was a tour of Australia 2004/2005. First foreign language production opened in Prague October 11th 2005 under the title A PEARL OF HOLYWOOD AND ME. Brighton Festival, May 2008. Subsequent European productions in Germany, Greece, Poland and Slovakia.
In The Minutes, Tracy Letts’s scathing new comedy about small-town politics and real-world power, the writer who brought you August: Osage County exposes the ugliness behind some of our most closely-held American narratives while asking each of us what we would do to keep from becoming history’s losers.

MIRACLE centres on a five strong theatrical troupe trudging through Depression era South Africa who encounters a woman who has a past association with one of the actors and who is bent on revenge and again exemplifies the author’s earthiness, humour and child-like wonder and is peopled with fable-like characters who are touched by magical events.
MIRACLE was first seen at the 1992 Grahamstown Festival in Afrikaans (MIRAKLE) and subsequently at the Wits Theatre, Johannesburg and the Momentum Theatre, Pretoria. The English language premiere was at the White Barn Theatre, Westport, Connecticut in July 2002. A London production premiered in Holborn in December 2009 with Susannah York as Salome. The production moved to the Leicester Square Theatre in January 2010. There was also a production in Durban, South Africa in March/April 2010. A second UK production played at the Hen and Chicken Theatre in Islington, 23rd August – 3rd September 2011.
In MISSING a mother keeps her daughter under constant supervision on a remote small-holding during the Depression, where they earn a living sewing sacks for the mountains of manure bought to them by surrounding farmers. The father, who is never seen, exiled himself to the loft some years ten before the play starts, leaving the women to run the farm. The night the action takes place is a strange one: haunting music fills the air from the nearby fairground, forbidden to the daughter. A mysterious blind policeman visits the mother and her daughter. This night is the anniversary of several mysterious disappearances of young women from their homes in the village. It is expected that the killer, or abductor, of these girls will strike again.
MISSING was premiered at the 1993 Grahamstown Festival and transferred to the Nico Malan Theatre, Cape Town and the State Theatre, Pretoria. The English version was first seen in the UK on a tour of the Midlands in March, April and May 2001.

MOTHER OF THE MAID
Sonia Brownell, a renowned beauty, is caught in a love triangle between the dying George Orwell who wants her as a wife, and the mercurial Lucien Freud who wants her as a lover. Sonia wants the best of both worlds and gets it.
The action of the play takes place in Room 65 of University College Hospital where George Orwell is dying of TB and too weak to hold a pen.
Despite his skeletal and waxen pallor, however, his mind remains lucid, and his literary contacts are kept in good order by Sonia Brownell with whom he falls in love.
Sonia for her part, responds to Orwell’s feelings, not with the love he so desperately needs, but with sweetness, honesty, humour and compassion.
Eventually, however, Orwell – who hopes to salvage time from the wreckage of his life to write another novel – proposes marriage to Sonia, and she reluctantly agrees because he says he will get better if she marries him.
Thereafter, her vivacity and laughter bring warmth and comfort to the last months of Orwell’s life.
Sonia, however, is no saint and has a weakness both for alcohol and sex, especially with the mercurial 28 year old Lucien Freud, a friend of Orwell who is engaged in making a ‘last’ beside portrait of the writer.
Plans are afoot for Freud and Sonia to take Orwell to a clinic in Switzerland, but before they can do so, he dies of a massive haemorrhage and drowns in his own blood.
Freud and Sonia, out dancing in a night club, miss the urgent telephone calls from the hospital and by the time they get to Room 65, Orwell’s body has been e oved and the only evidence of his having been there are the bloodied sheets.
Sonia, for the first time, realises the depths of her love for Orwell and breaks down with grief. She is, however, comforted by the prospect of being the extremely rich widow of a great literary man.
And who is to say this wasn’t her intention all along?

MYNX & SAVAGE
Getting lost in a story is a dangerous temptation. Adam is a comic book writer coasting on his past successes in the glossy pages of Mynx and Savage.

As the duo sets to work on the 100th issue of Mynx and Savage, the fantasy bleeds into reality as the superheroes and their mild-mannered alter egos invade the artists’ space.

Where Kyle is frightened, Jill is brave; where Kyle is secretive, Jill insists on honesty. This is the story that tortures Adam, the story he’s been hiding from the world; it’s the origin story of Mynx and Savage. In the end, as the worlds of the children, the superheroes and the artists collide, Ket helps Adam realize that he has no future until he makes amends with his past.

NO PARTICULAR ORDER
A despot has come to power. The society is listless, submissive and scared.
But beneath every violation of civil autonomy, there are humans, behind every resistance to power, there are individuals. And these people are not different to us but identical, they are not heroic or remarkable, but ordinary.
Through the lives of ornithologists, bureaucrats, soldiers and tour guides, No Particular Order charts the fall, rise and continuation of a single society, asking the same repeated question “Is it empathy, or power, that endures?”

The unassuming location of a dock extending out onto a small lake serves as the backdrop for five different stories. On a cool autumn night, Jake arrives with Holly at a secluded spot. The couple feels an immediate connection to this place as if it were put there just for them. Things seem perfect until Anne and her date, Lyle, arrive. On another day, early in the morning, Beth has plans to spend the day with her dad at their favorite fishing place. She has high hopes for catching some sunshine, a few fish, and her dad’s fading memories. The third story involves Al, who arrives at the dock with his family and has high expectations for their family canoe trip.

‘Poisoned Polluted’ is a fearless account of the repercussions of a childhood torn apart by neglect and abuse.
In the intimate space of the Old Red Lion, the walls are papered in torn trees indicated the ‘forest’ near their childhood home with a few boxes representing the barren rooms. SISTER appears to be just back from rehab. She is cold and defensive while the younger sister (HER) who seems healthier and happier, desperately tries to appease. SISTER regards her own life as a mistake, starting with her birth that nearly killed their alcoholic mother and having parented HER from age five, she continuously switches from love to bitter envy, convinced that things have always been so much easier for her little sister. But as the weight of her troubled life bears down on her sibling, it transpires, things have never been that straightforward.
The narrative unfolds through flashbacks to their childhood and then on towards a seemingly inevitable conclusion. The terrible tragedy that broke up their dysfunctional home leads with faltering steps on to a young adulthood peppered with moments of hope before the slow slide into addiction take hold. Kathyrn O’Reilly’s dialogue is unrelenting and clawing in a way that a desperate, symbiotic relationship can be. Yet the savagery is balanced by their childhood imagination, which turns the few trees in the park into a forest, the acorns into food when they are hungry.
PRIDE AND PREJUDICE* (*SORT OF)
Yazar : Isobel McARTHUR
This unique take on Jane Austen’s beloved novel is an adaptation like no other, drawing on over two hundred years of romantic pop history, and featuring six young women with a story to tell.
You might have seen them before, emptying the chamber pots and sweeping ash from the grate; the overlooked and the undervalued making sure those above stairs find their happy ending.
Of course, these women have always been running the show – after all, ‘You can’t have a whirlwind romance without clean bedding’ – but now the servants are also playing every part. Let the ruthless matchmaking begin!

REASONS YOU SHOULD(N’T) LOVE ME
For a long time I didn’t know how it’d work.

People would ask me if I could have sex and I’d feign shock and act wildly offended whilst secretly wanting to grab them by the shoulders and be like “I don’t know, Janet!”

The cast of Lucian O’Keefe’s 1946 classic ghost play Scared to Death are gathered and ready for their final dress rehearsal before opening night but all is not going smoothly. Actors are bickering, one of them can’t learn their lines, the director is on the edge of a nervous breakdown and to top it all off, the ghostly happeningsof the play seem to be encroaching onto the real world.
Slowly but surely fear takes hold as tales of the play’s curse seem to hold true and the cast find themselves caught up in an all too real,spine-tingling and terrifying ghost story.

SEX TIPS FOR STRAIGHT WOMEN FROM A GAY MAN
Robyn, a straight-laced, sexually repressed university student and new host of a book forum called Rendezvous with Alternative Authors of the Modern Era (RAAME, pronounced “ram me”). We see two interview chairs and a stand with a book on it as Robyn enters nervously (it’s her ﬁrst time hosting) and tells us that the book up for discussion is Sex Tips for Straight Women From a Gay Man, but she’s not sure how to go about discussing this kind of material. Then blissfully gay coauthor Dan comes in to help Robyn out. He thinks that the best way to talk about his book is not to read and analyze it academically, as Robyn wants to do, but to enact his sex tips onstage — with the help of the forum’s audience.
And so begins an uproariously funny series of interactive demonstrations of saucy, sexual advice. Audience members chosen by Dan join the cast onstage to help illustrate a range of amorous situations, from relatively tame tips, such as how to ﬂirt effectively at a bar, to meatier morsels, such as how to manually arouse a man in four easy steps (for which, see the subhead of this review; all audience members are encouraged to practice this technique by means of a rolled theater program, and Dan patrols the aisle with a video camera to make sure everyone is trying). Assisting Robyn and the audience is handsome and hunky Stefan (Andrew Brewer), a shy, reserved “scientist” who ﬁnds himself reluctantly unclothed at various times throughout the show as he gradually learns to embrace his inner stripper. He’s the scrumptious eye candy that frequently draws your attention away from the matters at hand.

SHEDDING A SKIN
Sometimes you crack.
Sometimes you didn’t mean to yell that.
Sometimes you have to lay low until you’ve figured it out
And sometimes, sometimes you have to hibernate until you’ve healed.
This is a new day.
Shedding a Skin is a story for our times. A play about finding kindness in unexpected places. A play about connecting with what our elders can teach us – new skin honouring old skin. A play about joy, healing and protest. And having a good belly laugh.

TEA FOR THREE : LADY BIRD, PAT & BETTY
What is it like for a woman when her husband becomes the president of the United States—and she is suddenly thrust into the spotlight? This witty, sly and deeply moving script explores the hopes, fears and loves of Lady Bird Johnson, Pat Nixon and Betty Ford. In three scenes taking place in the family quarters of the White House just prior to the end of living there as the wife of a president, each of the women confides alone to the audience. Secrets are spilled about their early years, their husbands’ rise to power, their romances with the men, their unique paths as wives in the White House, and their feelings about imminent retirement. Lady Bird Johnson, while preparing a tea for Pat Nixon, defends her husband’s quirks but finally admits to herself, “Politics is his oxygen.” Mrs. Nixon, drinking tea alone in her room on the eve of her husband’s resignation, works on her mail, picks at her food and guardedly recalls happier times before exploding in anger about Watergate and the political world. Betty Ford is discovered reading a TIME magazine in her bathrobe. Forestalling preparations for tea with Rosalyn Carter, Betty lightheartedly recalls past escapades, but eventually admits to being quite lost about life after the White House. Defiantly pushing back the fear, she sails out the door to meet Mrs. Carter. Each of the three portraits becomes intimate, by degrees, as the women wrestle with what Pat Nixon called “the hardest unpaid job in the world.”

Willie Thomas, an overworked, alcoholic, African-American father, passes on a legacy of self-hate and anger to his four sons: Jimmy, Wesley, Cleve, and the youngest, Alex. Each finds his own way to digest this legacy — Jimmy through hard drugs, Wes through petty crime, Cleve through education and the arts. The older brothers are seen through the eyes of young Alex, who had a pitchfork thrown at him by his father during a drunken rage. He desperately searches for self-definition as he attempts both to emulate and separate himself from his brothers and father. His search crystallizes when his father’s true story is revealed — as a child, Willie suffered a cruel injustice at the hands of a racist Alabama penal system, which virtually robbed Willie of his childhood. Written for one energetic actor, Throw Pitchfork explores serious terrain with much comedy.

A group of strangers meet in a dirty subway station. They have arrived with limited personal belongings, their watches have stopped and they all claim to be in different cities. Soon they learn there is no way out of the station, and the unfortunate truth is told to them: they are all dead. Since subway stations have two sides, they reason the train leaving from one platform must be bound for heaven, while the train leaving from the other platform must be bound for hell. But which platform are they on? They reflect upon their lives, recalling and confessing past deeds of which they are not proud, hoping to figure out which platform is which. The arrival of someone from the other platform only complicates matters, and the answer remains unclear. As the subway train finally approaches, they must decide whether to stay and ponder their actions further, or to have faith and climb aboard to their final destination.
