‘1595’: Midsummer Night’s Dream/Romeo & Juliet

1595-FB-Banner

Following on from the June production, the Company will be returning to The Assembly Rooms in Ludlow during the period 5 – 17 September. This will be our most ambitious venture to date and all to be presented under the title “The 1595 Season”

What we are going to be doing is presenting two Shakespeare plays: A Midsummer Night’s Dream and Romeo & Juliet. The plan is that they will be performed in rep with alternating performances.

Both plays are thought to have been written by William Shakespeare in or about 1595 (hence our label) and there are links between the two. Did the story of Pyramus and Thisbie give Shakespeare the idea for Romeo and Juliet? Or were the young ill fated couple from Verona the subject of a subsequent parody in A Midsummer Night’s Dream?

The plays are, and will in our productions be, linked. But we are re-arranging the digits  and both plays will be set not in 1595 but rather …1955.

AUDITIONS NOTICE

Actors are invited to audition for either or both plays. The Director for both productions is Carl Walker, who successfully directed last year’s production of ‘Much Ado About Nothing’. Audition dates are below:

March 2016

JUNE 2016

We can now reveal the confirmed production for June 2016. It is the comedy, A Chorus of Disapproval by Alan Ayckbourne and it is to be presented at The Assembly Rooms, Ludlow the week commencing 13 June.

A diffident widower attempts to escape loneliness by joining

the local amateur light operatic society. By accident rather than

design (in fact, by not saying “no” to anything be it a request to

obtain confidential information from his company or an offer of

illicit sex) he advances from a small part to the lead. Parallels

are drawn between The Beggar’s Opera and the day to day

activities of the society which is performing it.

” A brilliance and invention remarkable even by his standards”  (Financial Times)

“Symmetrically shaped, psychologically acute and painfully, heart breakingly funny” (Guardian)

7 male and 6 female parts

Mermaid

by Polly Teale

Beneath the ocean’s waves there is no death or pain or separation. Above, the modern world is beset with war, poverty and desire.

On her sixteenth birthday, a mermaid rises up to the surface, leaving her childhood behind for ever when she falls in love with a mortal prince. She knows that she can no longer live
at the bottom of the ocean –
but must she destroy herself in order to be loved ?

A bold reimagining of Hans Christian Andersen’s tale of love, loss and longing, transported to a contemporary setting.
