Hedda Tesman

Start date: 30th August 2019

End date: 28th September 2019

Time: 7.45pm

Location: Minerva Theatre

Hedda Tesman

A doting husband. A troubled writer. A loaded gun. It’s 2019 and Hedda Tesman returns to a life she can’t seem to escape.

After thirty years of playing wife, Hedda is bitter and bored. When her estranged daughter, Thea, suddenly reappears asking for help, the present begins to echo the past and Hedda embarks on a path of destruction.

Cordelia Lynn’s Hedda Tesman breathes new life into Ibsen’s Hedda Gabler, asking what we inherit, what we endure and how we carry our history. Holly Race Roughan directs this vital exploration of motherhood, power and sabotage.

Cordelia Lynn was the recipient of the 2017 Harold Pinter Commission. Her works include One for Sorrow and Lela and Co for the Royal Court and the libretto for Miranda at the Opéra Comique, Paris. Her plays Best Served Cold (Vaults Festival) and Believers Anonymous (Rosemary Branch) were both directed by Holly Race Roughan.

A co-production with Headlong and The Lowry

Macbeth

Start date: 21st September 2019

End date: 26th October 2019

Time: 7.30pm

Location: Festival Theatre

Macbeth
Much celebrated for his forthright bravery, Macbeth is a state hero. After the bloody defeat of a rebel army, he encounters a trio of strangers who predict that one day he will be King. Having delivered their ambiguous message, they vanish, leaving a mind cracked open.

Fearing that her husband lacks the vital drive to take charge of his fate, Lady Macbeth invokes her stronger nature to fulfil their destiny. The plan she hatches will trigger an uncontrollable train of events, hurtling two corrupted souls to the heart of darkness.

This contemporary production of Shakespeare’s great tragedy shows ambition falling headlong into tyranny and chaos. As appearances increasingly deceive, the nature of reality itself comes into question.

Paul Miller is Artistic Director of the Orange Tree Theatre, Richmond. He was previously Associate Director at Sheffield Theatres, where his productions included John Simm’s Hamlet.

John Simm makes his Chichester debut in the title role. Among his extensive screen and stage work, recent credits include Strangers, Collateral and Doctor Who on television, and Pinter at the Pinter: Six (West End).

Dervla Kirwan’s stage work includes Goneril in King Lear (2017), Frankie and Johnny (2014) and Uncle Vanya (2012) at Chichester and, most recently, Jesus Hopped the ‘A’ Train (Young Vic). She also appeared in Strangers alongside John Simm.

Location: Minerva Theatre

The Butterfly Lion

Signed Performance: Wed 6th Nov – 2.00pm
Captioned Performance: Th 31st Oct – 7.00pm

When Bertie is sent away from the African farm of his childhood to school in England, he leaves behind not only his beloved mother and the beautiful land, swarming with wildlife, but also his best friend – a white lion he rescued as a cub.

Bertie’s struggle to adjust to his new life in harsh, grey England is alleviated only by a chance friendship with the equally lonely Millie and his dreams of his treasured lion, now trapped in a French circus. But their remarkable journey is only just beginning, and the pair are destined to meet again.

The Butterfly Lion combines music, design and puppetry to bring a magical adventure to life: celebrating nature, friendship and the triumph of love.

Based on Michael Morpurgo’s best-selling novel, which won the Smarties Prize and the Writers’ Guild Award, this new stage adaptation is written by CFT’s Writer-in-Residence Anna Ledwich and directed by Dale Rooks whose many Chichester productions include The Midnight Gang (2018) and Running Wild (2015).

For more information please visit http://jaspel.sk/en/piestanske-kupele/ (there is a text in English and also a video in International Sign Language). You can sign up from any country as there is no limit or capacity when it comes to the number of people that want to sign up. The only thing we need to know is how many people would like to come and we will book the stay for you in 3,4 and 5* hotels.

You will find the poster (to hang) or a poster in PNG attached so that you can share it on social media (Facebook,…).

We are planning to organize this type of event annually for Deaf elderly from around the world. That is why we would like to welcome you now, so that you can spread the word about this amazing event in your country (organizations, clubs, schools, facebook, etc..) for Deaf elderly or youngsters as well to get involved.

There is another great opportunity for someone who will be able to organize a whole group and sends a group application (under your name or the name of the organization), because if you do so, you are eligible for a commission that you can use further in favor of the development of the Deaf community. The commission for 1 person in a 3* hotel is 30€, in a 4* hotel is 40€ and in a 5* hotel is 50€. This is going to be paid by Ikopo Ltd. on the basis of mediatory contract. We believe that every € is going to help you in the development of the activities in the Deaf community.
