'Hansel & Gretel' for Christmas 2018 is now scripted (1st Draft).
This the darkest of Grimm's tales has thrown up many issues in our crafting which makes it unsuitable for younger children; we have therefore marked the poster as 12A as in the cinema. The script will deal with issues surrounding child abuse and how far an abused person can go to protect themselves against ongoing abuse; we also deal with issues about the apportionment of blame in abuse cases and many other challenging topics. As well as performing at Christmas we will be presenting a workshop about the devising of Hansel & Gretel for 'Everybody's Reading Festival' in Leicester on the 6th October 7pm @ Pork Pie Lbrary - Admission Free.
Earlier in the afternoon at Pork Pie Library on the 6th October at 3pm we will be presenting for children and adults our adaptation of Hans Christian Andersen's 'The Ugly Duckling'. We are also intending that both children and adults can follow the show with some 'colouring in'. More details nearer the time. Again admission is free and tickets for both shows can be reserved at the Pork Pie Library or on our website.
December 2018 at The Swan in the Rushes - Hansel & Gretel
2019 we hope will involve an 'outreach project' with members of the group presenting in Loughborough and supporting a group in Keighley West Yorkshire to also perform 'Vagina Monologues' (a new treatment by Lisa Wood) - dates to be agreed with V-Day but likely to be end of February beginning of March.
We have got the rights for April/May 2019 to perform Dario Fo's classic political piece 'Accidental Death of an Anarchist, but intend to try and reschedule this for 2020.
May/June/September 2019 we hope to begin work on a presentation based on Richard Bach's 'Jonathan Livingston Seagull', for presentation in October for Everybody's Reading Festival and at Swan in the Rushes.
We are currently seeking for Christmas 2020 the rights to Dylan Thomas' 'A Childs Christmas in Wales'.
Why not contact us and think about being involved in a 'Stage Left Theatre Workshop' production. No previous experience is necessary and we guarantee that you will have an exciting and challenging time. We always introduce people new to performance in a protected way.
