    Lecture of the magic of Prague: Czech art and culture

    £5 payable on the door. No ticket needed.  Drinks from 7pm, one-hour lecture at 8pm.

    Lecture outline
    As part of the Habsburg Empire, Prague was beloved of kings and princes. During the 19th century, however, the Czechs sought to reclaim the city for their own. Looking back at ancient mythology, they imagined a new future by means of art, architecture, literature and music. From Romanticism to cubism, the Czechs re-conceived various artistic movements in specifically patriotic ways. Looking at painter and decorative artist Alfons Mucha, artist Karel Svoboda and composers Bedřich Smetana and Antonín Dvořák, this talk shows how the Czechs created a capital that was fit for a new independent nation.

    Speaker's Profile
    Our speaker, Gavin Plumley, is a writer and broadcaster who has appeared on BBC Radio 3, BBC Radio 4 and has contributed to newspapers, magazines and opera and concert programmes worldwide. He lectures widely about the culture of Central Europe during the 19th and 20th centuries. Recently he has given talks to the Royal Opera House, the National Gallery, the National Trust, the National Theatre, the British Museum, the V&A, the Southbank Centre, the Tate and the Neue Galerie, New York, as well as for history of art societies and The Art Fund.

    The Maestro's last words

    A famous orchestral conductor becomes obsessed with making his final utterance a memorable one. His immodesty is already legend.  He considers that his legacy should be at least the equal of the great composers and artists of his generation.  But it is not as straightforward as he had hoped, and his past life starts to catch up with him.

    Romeo and Juliet

    Passions collide. And the world changes in an instant.

    Experience Shakespeare’s tale of love and violence taken to the edge of the city, where the wildness of the heart can’t be contained.

    A small cast of multi-roling actors bring Shakespeare’s language to life through ensemble movement, lyrical flows and contemporary sounds; up close, intense, and in the round.

    Ideally suited to Years 9, 10 and 11 (ages 13 – 16), this 90-minute abridged version of the play uses only Shakespeare’s language, combined with a present-day setting. Clear storytelling makes it accessible for students at any stage of studying the text in class.

    The Tony-nominated SHREK: THE MUSICAL will be staged at the London Oratory School Theatre, Fulham in February 2020 by South West London theatre group Cygnet Players. Previously performed on the West End at the Theatre Royal in Drury Lane, this will be one of the first productions of SHREK: THE MUSICAL in London since the West End production closed in February 2013.

Set in the mythical ‘Once Upon A Time’ land of Duloc, where fairy-tale creatures are outlawed, this is a story of acceptance, inner beauty and standing up for the little guy.

    Cygnet Players will be one of the first theatre societies to stage SHREK: THE MUSICAL in London since the rights became available in January 2020. The society is an award winning, NODA-affiliated amateur musical theatre company that rehearse and perform across South West London, particularly Southfields and Putney. Established in 1997, Cygnet Players perform two musicals and a play every year, as well as putting on various concerts and other events, making them a staple in the social calendar of any theatre lover in South West London. Their previous shows include Spring Awakening, 9-5: The Musical, All

    The Mikvah Project

    Eitan is 17. Avi is 35.

    Eitan loves Arsenal. Avi loves his wife. Eitan goes to college. Avi is trying for a child.

    They are in completely different places in their lives. Yet, every Friday, Eitan and Avi meet at the Mikvah to take part in the Jewish ritual of submerging in the water.

    As they chat about life in the synagogue, football, the nature of marriage and desire, they form an unexpected bond that threatens to disrupt life outside the Mikvah.

    A play about the courage it takes to confront our hidden desires. Filled with singing and water, chutzpah and joy we are reminded how easily a heart can break.

    From Josh Azouz, the writer of smash hit Buggy Baby and Victoria’s Knickers.
