Past Productions

Take a look at some of our past productions... 

'Pygmalion' follows the story of flower girl Eliza Doolittle and eccentric Professor of phonetics Henry Higgins, as he tries to teach her to pass for a duchess in society after making a bet. Higgins teaches Eliza airs, graces and a veneer of gentility, but everything is not as simple as it seems… Similar to ‘My Fair Lady’, which was based on Bernard Shaw’s original play, this family-friendly classic delves into a sparkling and provocative exploration of education, sexual politics and the rigid class system of the day.

UNCLE VANYA

2019

Our premiere production was Chekhov's 'Uncle Vanya' in 2019, performed at the Tuckwell Open Air Theatre Festival in Cheltenham! 

Uncle Vanya began life as a comedy titled “The Wood Demon” and environmental destruction is a dominant theme in the work; the beautiful environment of the Tuckwell Amphitheatre provided a perfect reflection of this. Claustrophobic and personal, the brooding forest looms over actor and audience alike. Every detail of the play relevant, nothing superfluous- just as Chekhov would have insisted.

The psychological tension of Uncle Vanya revolves around characters whose lives are wasted.  Each character grapples with a fatalistic, unrealised yearning. Whether it’s a desire to save the countryside from industry, a futile attempt to reclaim lost health, an obsession with a woman who provides escape, or even an attempt to inject music into the stillness, every character’s attempt to break out of monotony is foiled by bitterness and self-sacrifice. In a way, that’s a reflection of many people’s worst fear; that life itself might one day prevent us from truly living.
