      The Butterfly's Spell

      A young poet beetle falls in love with an injured butterfly, a creature from outside his own realm. The other insects around him are disturbed: some try to persuade him to be sensible and remain in his own sphere, but others realise that the need to follow one’s heart’s desire, into the imagination, may be the only way to freedom. Lorca’s first play is a symbolist masterpiece, exploring many of the characteristic themes, of forbidden love and the imminence of death, that infuse his later work.

      Hogarth's Progress

      Set in an imagined version of eighteenth century London, Hogarth’s Progress is a riotous double bill of plays following one of Britain’s most celebrated artists on two spectacularly wild days and nights – one at the beginning of his career and one at the end.



      The plays explore the extraordinary life of William Hogarth and the commercialisation of art in a time that saw British culture spring from the drawing rooms of the wealthy into ordinary houses across the country. Filled with political satire, boisterous romps and sleazy characters, Hogarth’s Progress promises to be an extraordinary theatrical event not to be missed.

       

      The double bill begins with the first major revival of The Art of Success, which was first performed by the RSC in 1986 before transferring to the Barbican and New York. Compressing the artist’s ascent to fame into a single, action-filled night, Dear follows a larger-than-life Hogarth as he mingles with famous playwrights and artists, royalty and prostitutes, prime ministers and murderesses creating an exceedingly imaginative, thoroughly scurrilous, but nonetheless highly entertaining portrait of a world on the brink of transformation. The second play, The Taste of the Town, catches up with Hogarth 30 years later, finding him now hugely successful, yet still at odds with the world and with himself. Old and tired he may be, but there’s always time for one more fight.

      Larkin with Women

      The year is 1956 and Philip Larkin, one of England’s most famous post-war poets, arrives in Hull as the University Librarian.  Over the next thirty years his life will be dominated by three women.  Ben Brown’s play is a fascinating look at this intriguing poet and his complicated relationships.  Despite his selfishness, these three women were drawn to Larkin’s dry wit and stayed loyal to him to the end.  In this funny and touching play we see behind the facade of Larkin to gain an insight into his complex private life.

      L'Elisir D'Amore

      L'Elisir D'Amore



      Saturday, 22 September 2018 at 7.30pm



      Tickets:  £20 and £16 from www.langdondowncentre.org.uk or 0333 1212 300.



      Villa Incant returns to Teddington with their alternative to traditional staged operas bringing their version of L'Elisir D'Amore by G Donizetti.



      This light-hearted comedy is an all-time favourite with audiences and the intimate show will be performed by a cast of singers who have sung across Europe.



      The goups aim to maintain the integrity and grandeur of original plots by filling the opera with emotional energy.



      Music Director Riccardo Serrenelli says the popular opera has a humorous treatment of love and deception leading, unusually, to a happy ending.
