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.

The REP and the Regional Theatre Young Director Scheme (RTYDS) have today launched an ‘Introduction to Directing‘ course for West Midlands based new and emerging D/deaf and disabled directors in autumn 2017. The course will offer an amazing opportunity for anyone that has considered a career in directing or already has some experience but has faced barriers from pursuing it further.
We are aware that for a long time D/deaf and disabled artists have faced barriers accessing mainstream training and opportunities that would aid their career progression. The course will be an introductory look at the toolkit you will need to pursue a career in theatre as well as a showcase of your work to an invited audience at the end. It is also a great opportunity to meet, work and learn from the in-house arts team at the REP.
The course will include weekly workshops with professional theatre directors and practitioners from both The REP and beyond focussing on the skills and resources individuals need to take work from the page to the stage and to continue to develop their craft.
The first workshop will begin on the evening of Wednesday 13 September 2017 and will run every week for 10 weeks culminating in a sharing of participants work to an invited audience.
All access requirements (i.e. BSL interpreter, etc) will be met.
