Murder's In The Heir

Author: Billy St. John
Director: Gemma Dodds

Murder's In The Heir



1st September 2018 to 8th September 2018 7:30pm
Turn the game Cluedo into a play and you have the masterfully entertaining Murder’s in the Heir! Almost every character in this hilarious mystery has the weapon, opportunity and motive to commit the unseen murder; and it’s up to your audience to decide who actually did it! Each of the heirs to the tyrannical billionaire Simon Starkweather has the means and the motive to do away with him. Starkweather gathers his family and employees to announce the contents of his will. His lawyer, Lois van Zandt, reveals that he has bequeathed vast fortunes to his befuddled niece Fiona, her playboy son Jordan, his great-niece Paula (a Southern belle) and his grandson Simon III, as well as to his many servants. Then Lois delivers the bombshell! Within hours this will becomes invalid. Of course, the rejected heirs are not pleased, so it’s not surprising when they roam the old mansion carrying such items as an axe, a gun and poison. Predictably, the lights go out, and Simon is discovered murdered. Simon III (played by the same actor who plays the elderly Simon) is determined to find his grandfather’s killer, with the help of detective Mike Davis. The play’s unique ending, utilizing secret ballots gathered at intermission from the audience, determines the killer in this Billy St. John maze of murder. **Please note we have a no refunds policy on ticket sales**

We are delighted to bring this wonderful performance to London this Summer. Featuring "When I was a Lad" and "I am the Monarch of the Sea", HMS Pinafore marks one of Gilbert and Sullivan's most renowned operettas.
Set on a ship, this show explores the relationship between Josephine, the Captain's daughter, and Ralph, a lower-class sailor. Social class becomes an obstacle for the pair as Josephine's father attempts to marry her to the First Lord of the Admiralty. Will his mind be changed when he finds himself in a similar position, when Buttercup, a nanny, falls in love with him?

*The 2.30pm performance on 15th September will be BSL signed.


It's time to let your 80s hair down and get ready for a big night out, with not one, but two Godber classics.
Start the evening in the disco, where Ralph, Judd, Les and Lucky Eric, your friendly local Bouncers, will take you on a journey through the lives of the many and varied customers who enter through their well-managed doors.
After a brief interval, join waitresses, Nicki, Mel, Carol and Adele in oh-so trendy cocktail bar Shakers, and observe their portrayal of the people whose patronage both pays their bills and gives them aggro.
Written in the 1980s, and retaining all the 'charm' of that era, yet still every bit as relevant and relatable today, we present a back-to-back showing of John Godber and Jane Thornton's Bouncers and Shakers. At rip-roaring speed, over two one-act plays, our eight actors employ physical and vocal humour to play multiple roles, giving you a glimpse into the lives of dozens of different characters. Wince at some, cringe at others, but above-all, laugh with our Bouncers and Shakers.
Please note, these plays feature adult themes and moderate swearing

Kipps and Ann were childhood friends. When they were parted as children, Kipps cut a sixpence in half and told Ann to look at it whenever she missed him. Years later, Kipps is working as an apprentice in a draper’s shop in Folkestone. Ann arrives in the town, looking for him. They meet and re-kindle their childhood friendship. Then everything changes. Kipps meets Chitterlow – an eccentric actor/playwright – and finds out that he has inherited a fortune. He leaves the shop and is drawn into high society. He meets and falls in love with Helen Walsingham. They get engaged but Ann finds out before Kipps has a chance to tell her. She tells him that she never wants to see him again and is furious and upset at how he has treated her. But Kipps isn’t happy in high society and with the changes it forces upon him. After a showdown with Helen’s tyrannical mother, Mrs Walsingham, he calls off the engagement with Helen, realising it is Ann he loves, and he begs Ann to take him back. She does and they marry and start a new life with Kipps’ fortune. But all is not well. Ann just wants a simple life without all the trappings that Kipps’ money has brought with it. The money just causes rows between them. It looks as though their marriage won’t survive until Kipps learns that his financial adviser, Helen’s brother, has speculated all his money away and there is nothing left. Kipps and Ann are reconciled, realising that all that matters is that they have each other. In a surprising twist, Kipps comes into money again, but this time he realises that love is more important and has been all along.

Venue: The Quay Theatre, Quay Lane, Sudbury, Suffolk, CO10 2AN

Box Office: quaytheatre.ticketsolve.com or 01787 374745

Tuesday 11th - Saturday 15th September


The play is set in Tilling during the early 1930s where the pace is slow and there’s not an awful lot to do for the genteel with private income other than gossip, paint the occasional landscape, daily shop for groceries, gossip, entertain and play bridge. They are led by Miss Mapp who has a strong hold on one and all until the arrival of Lucia. Miss Mapp has met her before, briefly, in Riseholme where… Lucia held sway and all followed her lead.
The Tilling residents swap houses with each other for the summer season by downgrading thereby saving on rental. Lucia,the outsider, rents Miss Mapp’s residence called “Mallards” and so the drama begins…
The play is a story of two women trying to gain the upper hand. It is gently funny and each and every character, however long on stage, can make an impression on the viewing audience

Goodnight Mister Tom

Author: Michelle Magorian

DeOne of the most uplifting stories ever written, Michelle Magorian’s book is brought gloriously to life in this stage adaptation by David Wood. Set during the dark and dangerous build-up to The Second World War, the play follows sad young William Beech who is evacuated to the idyllic English countryside and builds a remarkable and moving relationship with the elderly recluse, Tom Oakley. All seems to be perfect until William is devastatingly summoned back to London by his troubled mother.ails

Whatever became of ‘a land fit for heroes’
In the cosy England of 1932, the Ardsley family seems to be managing their lives very well following World War I and the Great Depression. Yet each of them struggles for survival in a world turned upside down. This brilliant commentary was originally considered defeatist, even subversive, but certainly still resonates today.

ONLY ONE PERFORMANCE - Sunday, September 16 at 2pm.

Gilbert & Sullivan Austin presents a Concert Performance of “Patience; or, Bunthorne's Bride.” A hilarious and lilting comic opera, Patience satirizes the "aesthetic craze" of the 1870s and '80s, when the output of poets, composers, painters, and designers of all kinds was indeed prolific but whose followers and admirers, some argued, were empty and self-indulgent.
However, we are going to take a few liberties: The Dragoon Guards become university frat guys, the poets are hipsters, and our Patience the milkmaid works in the dairy department of an everyday grocery store. It will be the same delightful story and the same wonderful music, but with a contemporary twist in the setting.
“Patience” has some of Gilbert’s finest comedy and Sullivan’s most captivating tunes, adding up to a masterwork fully equal to their very best. It has wit, charm, poetry ... and a delightfully complicated love triangle – surely perfect musical entertainment for the whole family!
We hear over and over that too much time passes between productions, so that any individual opera is unseen for many years. With this concert version of “Patience” we hope to be responding to those concerns.
The performance will include slightly edited dialogue and music with grand piano accompaniment performed by some of your favorite singers. Principal actors in suggested costuming will perform the actions of the play, accompanied by a four-part chorus.
All dialogue and lyrics will be captioned.
Artistic Director is Janette Jones, with Music Director Jeffrey Jones-Ragona.

TICKETS £18 CONC. £16


THU 20 - SAT 22 SEP


Set in the East Village of New York City, RENT is about falling in love, finding your voice and living for today. Winner of the Tony Award for Best Musical and the Pulitzer Prize for Drama, RENT has become a pop cultural phenomenon with songs that rock and a story that resonates with audiences of all ages.
Based loosely on Puccini's La Boheme, Jonathan Larson's RENT follows a year in the life of a group of impoverished young artists and musicians struggling to survive and create in New York's Lower East Side, under the shadow of HIV/AIDS. The physical and emotional complications of the disease pervade the lives of Roger, Mimi, Tom, and Angel. Maureen deals with her chronic infidelity through performance art; her partner, Joanne, wonders if their relationship is worth the trouble. Benny has sold out his Bohemian ideals in exchange for a hefty income and is on the outs with his former friends. Mark, an aspiring filmmaker, feels like an outsider to life in general.
How these young bohemians negotiate their dreams, loves, and conflicts provides the narrative thread to this groundbreaking musical. This is theatre at its best - exuberant, passionate, and joyous.

21 & 22 September 2018 7:30pm


This revue tells the story of one man's luck, another man's misfortune - and how it will all turn out alright in the end!... Or will it?
This show tells the story of happy-go-lucky Mikey Morton, an ex-gangster and party crasher. Upon discovering an 'unattended' wallet at a society party, it looks like things are looking up. Taking on the persona of the wallet's owner, Mikey has it all - money, connections, friends - and the girl. Enter Diana, the beautiful society butterfly who falls head over heels for the man she thinks is Lucas DuMont - the unfortunate owner of the wallet.
Meanwhile, the real Lucas is at risk of being disinherited by his parents for losing his credentials - again. Deciding to win back favour with his family by proving he can look after himself, Lucas gets a job in a downtown speak-easy as a club singer. The resident hostess Camille, however, is not as glad about this as Lucas. Immediately the feud between Lucas and Camille begins, a high-society toff against a club girl from the block - what could go wrong?
Everything is going great - Mikey has Diana, Lucas has... a job. Camille is as in love with her own reflection as ever. What Mikey did not count on was his old gang buddies showing up expecting their cut of his new-found fortune. All at once it seems to go downhill for Mikey, his gang are back, and to top it off Chicago P.D. are onto him.
Will Mikey make it out of this? Will Diana find out who he really is?
Will Camille and Lucas ever duet?
Only one way to find out...

The Glass Menagerie

The Glass Menagerie

Ireland

Venue: Athlone Little Theatre, St Mary’s Place, Athlone

Box Office: www.athlonelittletheatre.ie/box-office/

Friday, September 21st to Friday, September 28th 8pm

Athlone Little Theatre opens its 2018-19 season with that classic American tale of love, bitterness and abandonment, The Glass Menagerie. This intense drama by Cat on a Hot Tin Roof author Tennessee Williams was first performed in 1944, then transferred to Broadway, where it won a New York Drama Critics’ Circle Award. It is considered Williams’s most autobiographical work.
Tom Wingfield (played by Frank O’Brien) looks back on the impoverished Wingfield family at a time when his domineering mother Amanda (Annette Dowling) is putting pressure on him to find a suitor for his fragile sister Laura (Emma O’Neill).
Laura devotes her time to her collection of glass animals, the favourite of which is the unicorn, an unusual creature that her could-be suitor Jim (Tomás Glynn) observes is “extinct in the modern world” – much like Laura herself, out of place in the world around her.
Mel O’Flynn directs the Little Theatre’s production with set design and construction under the artistic direction of Geoff Boles, lighting and sound design by Paddy Martin.

Vivie Warren, a young Cambridge graduate is horrified to learn that her education and entire luxurious life-style has been financed by her mother’s career in the world’s oldest profession.
The play was written in 1893 but was not performed until 1902 after which it was banned from public performance until 1925. Apparently Shaw wrote the play “to draw attention to the truth that prostitution is caused - not by female depravity or male licentiousness but simply by underpaying, undervaluing and overworking women so shamefully that the poorest of them are forced to resort to prostitution to keep body and soul together.”
This ground-breaking period drama is full of insight and humane understanding and ranks as one of Shaw’s masterpieces.
