The Hunting Lodge, Unicorn Theatre

Date: February 23, 2017

Time: 19.00 - 19.50

Location: 147 Tooley Street, Southwark, London SE1 2HZ

The Hunting Lodge

Captioned Performance on Thu 23 Feb, 7pm

Tickets £10 – £16 | Ages 11+

There was once a cleaner who married a prince. They lived happily ever after. But that’s not where the story ends…

The prince got ditched five years ago. His mum thinks he needs to get back out there and meet someone, so she’s throwing a party – which is good news for Daisy. Daisy has a plan; everything is lining up perfectly and she’s going to bag her prince. But Charlotte arrives, somewhat unexpectedly, and Daisy’s not happy about it.

The Hunting Lodge is a playful side-swipe at society’s obsessions with celebrity and its unrealistic romantic ideals.

This is modern and feisty love story gone wrong for tweens and teens everywhere.

The Winter’s Tale By William Shakespeare – Cheek by Jowl

Date: April 21, 2017

Time: 7:30pm

Location: Silk St, London EC2Y 8DS

The Winter’s Tale

Captioned performance

Recently awarded the Golden Lion of Venice for his ability to bring classic works to life for a contemporary audience, Declan Donnellan directs a revelatory Winter’s Tale that is ‘as intoxicating as a summer night’ (Les Echos).

Shakespeare tears apart nearly every rule of theatre. Low comedy interrupts high tragedy, kings jostle with thieves, and the stage is invaded by clowns, a princess, a bear and Time herself, who announces a sixteen-year interval.

Vitalised by storytelling of sparkling clarity, this production by Barbican Artistic Associate Cheek by Jowl features Orlando James as Leontes, his insidious descent into delusion and darkness giving way to light as joy is born.

Duration: 2 hours 45 mins/including an interval

Age guidance: 14+

Toneelgroep Amsterdam: After the Rehearsal/Persona

Start date: September 20, 2017

End date: September 30, 2017

Time: 7:45pm

Location: Silk St, London EC2Y 8DS

After the Rehearsal/Persona

Performed in Dutch with English subtitles

Two Bergman screenplays are reimagined for the stage in a double bill about the chaotic lives of theatre people, exposing the fine line between art and reality, illness and normality.

After the Rehearsal: For Hendrik Vogler, a director obsessed by his work, rehearsals are like notes in his diary, performances his autobiography. Everything is subject to his control yet it soon becomes apparent that life cannot be kept at bay when ex lover Rachel and Anna, her daughter and his current star, breach his sanctum.

Persona: Celebrated actress Elisabeth Vogler falls mute and retreats into silence. It’s as though a short circuit has occurred, calling into question the roles she must play. She is cared for in hospital by nurse Alma who then accompanies her to an island summerhouse in an attempt to coax her into speaking again. Tension between the two builds.

Having recently directed illuminating versions of the classics at the Barbican, including Antigone and Kings of War, Ivo van Hove presents uncompromising, intimate human drama. Counting Bergman among his favourite filmmakers because he shows us ‘in all our inimitable complexity,’ he directs four actors from his Dutch ensemble on a set that transforms from the sparse to the scenically breathtaking.

After the Rehearsal/Persona is one of three Toneelgroep Amsterdam productions directed here by Ivo van Hove in 2017. See Roman Tragedies in March and Obsession in April

Duration: 2 hours 50 mins/including an interval

Age guidance: 14+
