Entertaining Angels by Richard Everett directed by Michael Darbon
Following a hugely successful run at Chichester in 2006, followed by a sell-out national tour, this highly entertaining, sharp edged comedy – which is funny, touching and genuinely thought provoking, comes to the BLT stage. ‘I’ve poured 200,000 cups of tea, made 4,600 medium-sized quiches and personally baked 2 tons of light crust pastry. And for what?’ asks Grace who has spent a life time on best behaviour. When her sister return from years abroad skeletons fall from the cupboard and long hidden secrets are revealed.
September 26 – 30 (In the Bar at 7-45)
Edgar and Annabel by Sam Holcroft directed by Jane Lobb and tbc directed by Patrick Neylan
Two one act plays. Edgar and Annabel was performed at the National Theatre in 2011. Billed as a comedy thriller it is a play that not only amuses and intrigues but also has great political resonance. Expect an engrossing hour in a police state where surveillance is the norm. Tension, humour, subterfuge and karaoke!! (More to follow when Patrick decides)
October 12 – 20 (BLT Main House at 7-45) NOT SUNDAY
King Charles 111 by Mike Bartlett directed by Pauline Armour
Winner of a host of Olivier Awards in 2015 when it premiered at the Almeida and subsequently a host of Tony Awards on Broadway. Queen Elizabeth 11 is dead. After a lifetime of waiting her son ascends the throne. A future of power. But how to rule? Mike Bartlett’s controversial ‘future history’ play explores the people beneath the crowns, the unwritten rules of our democracy, and the conscience of Britain’s most famous royal family.
‘spectacular, gripping and wickedly entertaining’ (Charles Spencer The Telegraph), a gripping drama ……..attendance is compulsory’ (Dominic Cavendish The Telegraph)
