It’s 1936 and nail-biting thrillers like The Shadow and Lights out are all the rage in radio dramas. Tonight, the WSCC station might put itself on the map too, when the first episode of their own Radio Suspense Theatre takes the airwaves.
As love blossoms backstage, and a plucky sound technician steps in for an absent star, the company bands together to bring two original, thrilling tales of suspense to life, framed by music and ads of the era.

Join Stage 27 for tales from a bygone past……

Doors will open 30 minutes prior to performance, and there will be refreshments available.

About the workshop Dr. Shrotri says in a press release that: 'Theatre is a very safe space where one can project her/his real life problems and experiment with them in a realistic way to find out the possible solution.

Engineering Paradise the Musical

A new work for the stage based on part of my (David Gardiner's) 2011 novel Engineering Paradise. The musical was created in a very unusual way and is in the Public Domain so that no Performing Rights fees are payable for producing it and a potential Director would have complete artistic freedom to adapt or amend the script to suit his or her specific requirements.
Although it has many lighter moments this is at heart a rather dark musical set in the war-and-hatred-torn Belfast of the 1960s and early 70s. It is dedicated to the memory of the approximately 3,500 people who lost their lives in these 'Troubles'.

It's essentially a coming-of-age teenage love story set against this background, and a major theme is what we would now call 'radicalisation'. A schoolboy without any strong views becomes seduced into IRA membership because of a love of pirate radio and solving technical problems. Seeing it all as an interesting game he makes a Faustian bargain from which there is no escape. This general theme could hardly be more topical.

For more information, including an account of the work's unusual genesis and demo versions of all the songs as well as a free download of the script, please visit the Showcase page above.

River in the Sky by Peter Taylor

Reviewed by: Elaine Chapman @elainec46302904

Reviewed 30th May 2019

Venue: Lion and Unicorn Theatre, Kentish Town

Approaching a topic such as grief after the loss of a baby and multiple miscarriages is a difficult and triggering subject to write about and put on stage. As director Peter Taylor likes to tackle difficult and ambitious subjects this is a piece I would expect from him. For as a young writer/director he certainly pushes himself and this play is no exception.

As the couple played by Howard Horner and Lindsay Cross grieve the loss of their long-awaited baby. Neither can find comfort in one another and bounce off one another verbally each time they meet after she moves out of their home and retreats to her families owned place by the sea to try and come to terms with her loss.

The “bittersweet escapism from their mourning” manifests into storytelling, some of the stories are surreal in places and can be unnecessary. I understand their importance from the character’s perspective. However, they lose the dramatic effect with the quantity that has been packed into the play.

In one scene when the couple is writhing on the floor fighting an imaginary monster. It felt as if the play descended into a student practice production piece as appose to a professional off west end theatre production.

The role played by Cross as a grieving Mother did not altogether come over that convincingly. There felt to be something missing through her performance. Grief is an extremely personal experience and there are no rules on how someone should behave while going through the process. However, with the right actor, you can feel every emotion with them and for me, that part was missing.

Upon reading the press release and knowing how talented the director, Taylor is. I was expecting something very good but sadly this isn’t one of his best pieces on the stage. With some redrafting and some careful editing, this has great potential to be a very powerful play.

Three Stars.

From nfranciselectrical@btinternet.com

Hi we are staging a comedy play written by one of our members. In it, we want, desperately, to use rain and have created a prototype rain machine which works but we have been told by the village hall insurers that they will not entertain any water on stage.

Have any other groups successfully used rain in the past? If so can you contact me to advise on how you did it and how you convinced the insurers it was safe?
OR how can we create the effect of rain?

Really looking forward to hearing from you.

Neale – Chairman Barns Green Players

Peter's response:

Hi Neale,

Thanks for posting your question. I shall make sure it gets published in the #Advice section of the www.dramagroups.com website and its associated Facebook, Twitter and Instagram pages within the next 24 hours. I shall ask people to contact you directly if they can help or advise.

Personally I have no experience in this area other than to say I’ve seen Singin’ in The Rain performed with both water and a projected rain storm. The real water won hands down.

Best Wishes,

Be More Chill

Press release- Liverpool theatre company What We Did Next
presents the Broadway hit musical
at The Hope Street Theatre

What if popularity came in a pill?

Liverpool theatre company WHAT WE DID NEXT will be performing the North West premiere of the critically acclaimed musical Be More Chill from 8-11 May at The Hope Street Theatre in Liverpool.

'If you fed DEAR EVAN HANSEN to the LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS plant you would get BE MORE CHILL.' The New Yorker.

The thrilling story of a teenage boy's quest to become popular and talk to the girl of his dreams with the help of a pill-sized supercomputer.
Be More Chill is the ‘little musical that could’. It started in a small theatre in New Jersey in 2015 and, thanks to an incredible fan following, opened on Broadway in 2019.
Liverpool theatre company, What We Did Next, has the unique opportunity to stage the musical at the same time as its Broadway run, meaning theatre fans in the North West don’t need to look further than Hope Street to see New York’s hottest new show.
And it was all thanks to Liverpool-based superfan, Jess Sutcliffe.

'I have loved this show ever since first listening to the soundtrack two years ago. I had never directed a musical before, but I knew I wanted to direct this show and bring it to Liverpool. Being a part of this company has helped bring all my ideas to fruition and it’s so incredible to see the show come to life. I can’t wait for audiences to see it!'
Jess Sutcliffe, Co-Director.

Jess is co-directing with Andrew Ab, who previously directed Rent and I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change for What We Did Next.
'It's amazing to work on a show that has only been performed a handful of times around the world. We get to be really creative and put our own stamp on a show that’s going to get bigger and bigger. The music is so addictive and we feel incredibly privileged to be bringing this show to a Liverpool audience who will hopefully leave the theatre humming the tunes.' Andrew Ab, Co-Director.
For What We Did Next it’s an exciting opportunity to perform at The Hope Street Theatre for the first time and to add to its extensive musical theatre repertoire, which it has built up over the last ten years.
The company has previously delighted local audiences with their take on several modern and classic musicals such as ?Pippin, Bonnie & Clyde, Bat Boy, Carousel,? ?Rent, The Last 5
Years, Company and Into the Woods.
What We Did Next was founded during Liverpool’s European Capital of Culture Year in 2008, by a group of recent University of Liverpool graduates looking for an outlet for their creativity, while starting out in various careers in and around the city. A decade on, they are thriving as a company and very much a part and a product of Liverpool’s vibrant cultural scene.
The company defines itself as a team of ‘Professional Amateurs.’ Members include doctors, teachers, photographers and those who are training for a career on the stage, who come together to produce professional-standard theatre that otherwise may not be seen in the city.

Tickets for Be More Chill are £12-£15 (plus £1 booking fee) and are available from the Ticket
Quarter Box Office website here.
The Saturday 11th performance has already SOLD OUT so get tickets quick so you don’t miss out!

Notes to Editors
Be More Chill | 8-11 May 2019, 8pm | Hope Street Theatre | Tickets £12 and £15 (plus £1 booking fee)
Tickets available from Ticketquarter.

We would like to perform in the Wellington Drama Festival but the cost of purchasing 9 scripts is quite prohibitive as we would not recoup the costs from the performance. Thanks :-)
