    Loom Beading Workshop

    Fancy trying out a new skill this autumn?

    Join us for a relaxing Sunday afternoon of beading heaven!

    Using a wooden bead loom, we'll teach you how to make an attractive bracelet or bookmark, either using one of our pattern templates or your own design. We'll have lots of different beads for you to choose from, together with clasps to finish off the bracelet (if you choose this project).

    We'll start by showing you how to assemble and string up the loom, then you'll be ready to weave your beautiful beaded creation. Finally, you'll be taught how to finish off your work securely and neatly.

    All materials and tools are provided, as are drinks, so just bring yourselves. The bead loom is also included in the workshop price, so that you'll be able to continue beading at home.

    The class will be taught by Ann and Catherine from Handmade Workshops.

    Donations to support the podcast and new writing can be made at wildducktheatre.com/donate 

    For fuller sponsorship partnership opportunities with Wild Duck Productions, please do get in touch info@wildducktheatre.london

    Rice

    Nisha is a young hotshot executive working for Golden Fields, Australia’s largest producer of rice. Ambitious and headstrong, she’s determined to become the first female Indian CEO in Australia. She’s close to sealing a contract with the Indian government, which would see her company take over India’s national rice distribution system.

    A secret deal worth billions.

    Working late nights in the office she encounters Yvette, an older Chinese migrant, who cleans up her mess. Yvette has her own entrepreneurial ambitions, but her daughter faces court after participating in a protest against the unethical practices of a national supermarket chain.

    The two form a powerful – if unlikely – bond as they navigate the complexities of their lives and the world at large.

    “a heady broth of gender, generation and globalisation” Australian Stage

    Brimming with wickedly humorous observations on globalisation, politics and family, this is the UK premiere of a powerful new play from Asian-Australian writer Michele Lee, which has won numerous awards including the Australian Writers’ Guild Award for Best Original Stage Play.

    The Duchess of Malfi

    Webster’s stunning tragedy explores class and gender inequality, misogyny, madness and murder in a High Renaissance court. Recent exposes of toxic masculinity by the #MeToo movement provide one of the many contemporary resonances of the play. This adaptation transports the drama to a powerful celebrity family, set against the backdrop of a 1960’s Italian film studio and the Vatican.

    Food as Medicine?

    Food definitely influences health but can it be used as medicine?  On this course we will identify the nutritional components of food, find out why our bodies need them and identify why some foods are better eaten in conjunction with others.  

    We shall scrutinise food labelling.  Explore diet and supplements to improve health, particularly in relation to reducing the chances of developing Type 2 diabetes, heart disease and osteoporosis, discussing whether diet/food along can change outcomes in these. We will look at stories about using food as medicine that are found in the media and research some of these to find out if there is any scientfiic basis for the claims.  

    The course aims to give you overall knowledge of nutrition so that you can then make informed decisions to benefit the health of yourself and your family.

    The Flying Dutchman - Rose Opera

    A ghost captain (the ‘Flying Dutchman’) is cursed to roam the seas forever, coming ashore only once every seven years. Only if he finds a wife who loves him truly whilst he is ashore can he be freed from this eternal fate. Senta, the daughter of another sea captain, wants to be that wife. But she had previously pledged her love to another, with disastrous results for the ‘Flying Dutchman’. Come and see Rose Opera’s new production of this early Wagner masterpiece. Performed in German with English surtitles, featuring the Rose Opera Orchestra and Chorus.

    British History 1945 - 1990

    British history from 1945 to 1990 divides into two distinct sub-periods.  From 1945 to the mid 1970s there was a degree of policy consensus between the two principal political parties, though we will discuss whether this has at times been over-stated.  From the mid 1970s there was a clear policy choice for the electorate with significant continuing implications for our world today.  Our approach will be thematic.  For each of the sub-periods we will examine in turn the principal political, diplomatic, economic and social events and changes.
