Two short plays by Bernard Shaw, directed by Artistic Director Paul Miller following his hugely successful OT productions of Shaw’s Candida, Misalliance, The Philanderer and Widowers’ Houses. The plays can be seen separately or together as a double bill.
In How He Lied to Her Husband, Aurora is concerned about what has happened to the poems written for her by her admirer, the impetuous Henry, and fears they may get into the hands of husband Teddy. Henry suggests they confess the truth and go to the theatre as planned… to see Bernard Shaw’s Candida. Then Henry arrives home.
Overruled sees two strangers fall in love at sea. Both married they decide they must part, but then are surprised to find their spouses at a hotel together. They’ve fallen for each other too. Do they stay together or swap?

In Flagrante Choir 2020
In Flagrante’s signature song has long been the uplifting Cat Stevens' song which starts “ If you want to sing out, sing out”, and this has kept us going during lockdown.
Over the past months, the number of choir singers has grown, our repertoire has grown and our hair has grown!
Nothing was going to stop us singing out, and we have kept going - either meeting face to face or on-line, under the direction of our amazing Musical Director,
Eamonn O’Dwyer (https://www.eamonnodwyer.com)
Rehearsals start with a warm-up, focusing on breathing techniques and unique tongue twisters to stimulate diction!
Eamonn works with a mixture of repertoire - short and sweet, old and new (often including his unique, glorious, musical arrangements) - revising each singing part and leading to a performance from the whole choir. Choir sessions resulting in on-line concerts have provided our weekly fix of fun. Singers are a very friendly bunch and new recruits - all ages, all voices - are most welcome.
If you can hum a tune, you can sing - a love of music is all you need …. does this sound like the start of a good song title?!
For the moment we will continue to meet on-line on a Tuesday night at 19.30 hrs.
If you are interested in having a go at singing please contact Cathy at email@example.com.

We would LOVE to hear from you 🎵

New exhibition at Turner's House: 'Turner's English Coasts'
Turner‘s House Trust is delighted to announce its second exhibition of original works of art by J.M.W. Turner. The exhibition comprises eleven Turner watercolours and engravings, painted at a time when Turner was at his most popular and commercially successful.
Turner’s English Coasts focuses on Turner’s engagement with English marine and coastal subjects at a pivotal time in his career when he was living at Sandycombe Lodge, the house he designed and lived in between 1813 to 1826, at Sandycoombe Road, St Margarets, Twickenham TW1 2LR.
Guest-curator Christine Riding has deliberately selected works which underline the close relationship between Turner’s images of maritime Britain and contemporary print culture. The exhibition includes projects financed by professional engravers and publishers to those instigated by Turner himself. Some were commercially successful (the finished watercolours in the exhibition were and still are highly desirable to art collectors), while others were personal experiments. Crucially, it was through such projects – unprecedented in their breadth and quality – that Turner was to achieve an international reputation.
Turner’s House Trust are grateful to the Tate for the loan of these paintings.
