Teddington Theatre Club : STILL LIFE & RED PEPPERS

By Noël Coward Directed by Mandy Stenhouse

Still Life - the bittersweet tale of a clandestine affair that became Coward's classic film, Brief Encounter. Laura and Alec are the two, utterly English star-crossed lovers trapped in passionless marriages, yearning to break free.

Red Peppers - stuck in a love-hate relationship are song & dance duo George and Lily Pepper. On their way down the ladder of success, their vaudeville duos provide the musical counterpoint to their non-stop squabbling and petty feuds.

Two classic short plays by a very English genius

Richmond Shakespeare Society : -Richard II - OLD EVENT

by William Shakespeare, directed by Simon Bartlett

"... England, that was wont to conquer others Hath made a shameful conquest of itself"A despotic ruler embedded in the past, surrounded by yes-men. A country taxed to the hilt, led into futile wars and feuds, and haunted by suspected murders. Opposition gathers round a rival in the hopes of new start.

Shakespeare's great lyrical tragedy shows a world on the brink - but is it of chaos, or a new order?

Richmond Shakespeare Society : The Railway Children (stage version)

by E. Nesbit adapted by Mike Kenny, directed by John Roth

If ever there was a "timeless" classic tale, this is surely it. There have been many Stage adaptations, but the one by Mike Kenny for the now famous presentation at Waterloo Station, later at Kings Cross, is the one chosen for our Christmas production.

This is loosely described as the "Adult" version, but do not let this influence you, since it is basically nostalgic: all it needs, as Mr. Kenny points out, is imagination, and as Bobbie says in the very opening: "Do you remember? We were the Railway Children".Come and enjoy this charming and exquisite piece of our literary heritage.

Richmond Shakespeare Society : Bette and Joan

by Anton Burge, directed by Harry Medawar

Robert Aldrich's 1962 film tells the story of Blanche and Jane Hudson, two sisters bound forever by guilt and deceit. Playing the title role, Bette Davis was nominated for an Oscar while her co-star, Joan Crawford, was not. Anton Burge's highly entertaining comedy gives us Hollywood's grandest at close quarters in their adjacent dressing rooms on set. After thirty years, was the first time the two actresses had worked together, an opportunity to bury past rivalries and for any sense of antipathy to be forgotten. Yeah, ...
