Directed by Grae Westgate with permission from Samuel French

Back on the road again and this time celebrating the 50th anniversary, Bournemouth based Arena Theatre presents Tom Stoppard’s seminal work.  Absurd and existential, funny and plain weird, the play expands upon the exploits of the titular two minor characters from Shakespeare’s Hamlet.  

The action takes place mainly ‘in the wings’ of the Bard’s greatest work, with brief appearances of major characters from Hamlet who enact fragments of the original’s scenes.  Always willing to explore the more challenging plays, Arena Theatre boasts Sir Mark Rylance (Bridge of Spies, Wolf Hall) and playwright, Jez Butterworth  (Jerusalem, The Ferryman, Mojo) as two of their Patrons.

JRR Tolkien’s Leaf by Niggle | Friday 10 November 7.30pm

Leaf Niggle
The Marine Theatre is pleased to present the Tolkein classic play. Puppet State use intimate storytelling, object animation, music and sound to bring the story to life. The production appeals to adults, students, young adults, and children from about the age of ten.

Niggle is a painter. Not a very successful one, partly because he has so many other things to do. For some time he has been obsessed with one particular canvas – a curious picture of a tree with a vast landscape stretching out behind it. The painting keeps getting bigger and bigger, but Niggle has a journey to make …

In 1939 Tolkien was despairing of ever bringing his great work The Lord of the Rings to a conclusion. One morning he woke up with the story Leaf by Niggle complete in his mind and wrote it down. This poignant story, about an artist on a curious journey, is often seen as an allegory of the writer’s own creative process and life.

Surrounded by ladders, bicycles, easels and heirlooms, Richard Medrington (Jean from The Man Who Planted Trees) recounts Tolkien’s miniature masterpiece, with a soundtrack composed by Karine Polwart and Michael John McCarthy.

Lyme Literary: Patrick Barkham at the Marine

barkhamlowres_marcusgarrett

 

WE REGRET THIS EVENT HAS BEEN POSTPONED UNTIL EARLY 2018. 

The Marine is pleased to announce a new event called Lyme Literary – a series of talks inspired by books.

In the first – based on his book Islander – Patrick Barkham travels from island to island in search of their special magic. Meeting all kinds of islanders, from nuns to puffins, he discovers what it is to be an islander.  Some islands, like Ray Island in Essex are abandoned and mysterious places haunted by myths, ghosts and rats. There are resurgent islands such as Eigg, which have been liberated from capricious owner-dictators; holy islands like Bardsey, the resting place of 20,000 saints, and still a site of spiritual questing; and dying islands such as St Kilda, famed for the evacuation of its people, and now dominated by wild sheep and seabirds.

Along the way, he uncovers bizarre and touching stories about island life, meets a host of curious characters and native species, and explores some of the most beautiful landscapes in Britain.

Patrick Barkham is a features writer for the Guardian, where he has reported on everything from the Iraq War to climate change. He is the author of The Butterfly IslesBadgerlands and Coastlines.

‘Patrick has joined the nature writers’ First Division’ The Times

‘A must-read for all Britain’s naturalists’ Chris Packham
