    Metamorphosis

    The arresting opening lines of both story and play describe how Gregor, a hitherto unremarkable young man, wakes up one morning to find himself transformed into.... well the literal translation from the German is, so I'm told, "a horrible vermin". Further description reveals that he has indeed become a giant cockroach. OK - that is the premise - and from there we discover how his family and employers react to Gregor's altered condition, and how their attitudes and behaviour alter as they become his carers, his defenders and, eventually, his jailers.

    A dark, funny and unexpected venture into the surreal.

    Written by Steven Berkoff from the classic Franz Kafka story.

    Extraordinary Charity Art Auction

    There is going to be an "Extraordinary Charity Art Auction" of the previously hidden, vibrant art of late professional artist, Desmond Jones, which is set to raise lots of money for many local charities! The auction is going to be taken by the charismatic and exuberant, BBC antiques expert, Charlie Ross! 

    Tickets are £3

    The auction is extraordinary because:-

    • Desmond Jones was a highly talented artist, skilled (through his excellent training at Twickenham Art School, now Richmond Upon Thames College,) at distilling his visions rapidly onto the canvas in a burst of colour, which make his oil paintings extremely vibrant and attractive. His work was celebrated in February 2016 with the presentation of a piece to Richmond Upon Thames College, where a few of his works were also displayed and impressed the local Art Presidents and dignitaries who attended the event.
       
    • All of the remaining, available, Desmond Jones artworks are to be auctioned at a special event on June 9th 2017, with a pre-auction "once in a lifetime" exhibition at Orleans House, Twickenham (on May 12th - 14th, facilitated by Richmond Council's Arts Department). Thirty-nine worthy charities (local to Richmond or with a personal connection to the artist; see the ones taking part on the right hand column of the art catalogue) have chosen a painting from which to receive 50% of the money raised from its sale at the auction. This is unprecedented and extraordinary in itself!
    • The amount of money the art works will realise at the auction is a complete unknown, as none of them have previously been sold at a public auction (being private commissions, arranged during Desmond's lifetime), which is exciting! They are, however, attracting a great deal of attention and admiration and are highly desirable. Have a look at them for yourself, via the Desmond Jones Art web site.

    • The famous, highly charismatic and exuberant Charlie Ross, who you may have seen on BBC television's "Bargain Hunt" and "Antiques Road Trip" will be auctioning the artwork at this event, which will be lots of fun!
