    The River Girl

    Wendy Cope’s poem The River Girl takes us into the profoundly uncomfortable territory of male artists and the treatment of their female partners. Exposed in many a biography of writers, artists and actors is a partner whose personality is subordinate to that of the “star”. Wendy Cope uses a mixture of humour and irony to chart the course of one such relationship between a poet and his lover. Using the distinctive marionettes and the intimate atmosphere of the Puppet Theatre Barge, the company creates a unique theatrical event.

    Suitable for adults.

    September 2, 8** & 9, 15 & 16, 22 & 23, 29 & 30 at 7.30pm (** captioned performance)

    Kindertransport

    On the brink of World War II, nine-year-old Eva is sent to Britain with little more than a suitcase and an identity label, one of 10,000 children evacuated in a rescue mission called Kindertransport.  Eva is taken in and raised by a well-meaning English woman. Torn between her German heritage and her need to wipe the experience from her memory, Eva learns to adapt to her new life and her new identity.

    Kindertransport moves seamlessly between present time and memory, as the consequences of Eva’s childhood play out many years later.  Her story is based on autobiographical accounts and this moving and thought-provoking play tells a captivating story of survival and the challenges and rewards that come when building a new life, resonating strikingly with events facing the world today.

    Under Milk Wood

    By Dylan Thomas, directed by Paul Turnbull.

    The majestic play for voices comes to life.

    Never has a story where nothing happens been so beautifully told. Under Milk Wood is perhaps Dylan Thomas’ best known work, made famous in the early 50s as a radio play featuring Richard Burton.

    Full of evocative language and cleverly conjured characters, we are immersed in a night and day of Llareggub life where dreams and reality intertwine and the pasts, presents and futures of the townsfolk come out to play.

    The Acoustic Strawbs

    From acoustic to electric and back again is a journey the Strawbs make with consummate musical ease. The band’s leading light Dave Cousins began his creative career by serving his apprenticeship in the reflective, accomplished world of British traditional folk. Back when they were known as The Strawberry Hill Boys, they enjoyed the eternal distinction of having the legendary vocalist Sandy Denny in the line-up. Decades on, the Strawbs are among the best purveyors of this musical heritage around today.

    Tickets: £19 / £17 (£18 / £16 LAC Members)

    Pre-show supper available; £8.50 per person.

    Strictly Murder

    Provence. April 1939. English couple, Peter and Suzy, are living in idyllic isolation; far, it seems from the rumblings of the oncoming war. Their peace is suddenly shattered by a stranger from Peter's past who unearths secrets from a buried and hidden life, which throws Suzy's world into turmoil.

    In a world where the Third Reich is emerging as a dangerous regime, deceit, lies and subterfuge make this fast paced thriller a dark and nail-biting rollercoaster. Strictly Murder stars Brian Capron (Coronation Street, Where the Heart Is, Grange Hill, Celebrity Masterchef), Corrinne Wicks (Doctors, Emmerdale) and Gary Turner (Emmerdale).
