THEATRE | FRANKENSTEIN | TUESDAY 22 MAY

Mary Shelley’s masterpiece is re-imagined to celebrate the 200th anniversary of the novel’s publication.

Frankenstein 2

Angel rising…

Slowly, painfully, out of the fusion of rabid light and impenetrable darkness, Angel emerges, alien and alienated.

Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein translated in a free form modern interpretation to celebrate the 200th anniversary of the novel’s publication.  The new play embraces the themes of the human ideal of perfection, identity and modern day politics .

Witness the civilian response to the untamed violence of Angel, the disaffected outlander, whose elemental presence is like a force of nature.

This innovative contemporary reworking of Frankenstein is a collaboration between the much talked about theatre company SISATA and Offie-nominated BAFTA award-winning playwright, John Foster.

THEATRE | ROMEO AND JULIET | SATURDAY 2 JUNE

The popular Handlebards theatre company return to Lyme Regis for an outside performance of Shakespeare’s tragedy.

Romeo & Juliet Marine Theatre

 

The HandleBards are the world’s first cycling theatre company. Before touring their “seriously silly” production of Romeo and Juliet around the world, they pedalled it 1500 miles around the UK by bicycle, with all the necessary set, props and costume in tow. Now, the show is back by popular demand – and, in usual HandleBards style, you can expect riotous amounts of energy, a fair old whack of chaos, and a great deal of laughter.Join the HandleBards’ all-female troupe outside the beautiful Marine Theatre for Romeo and Juliet as you’ve never seen it before!

 

And what’s the play about? In Verona, the Montagues and Capulets are in the throes of a long-running family feud. In the midst of this two young members of the families – Romeo Montague and Juliet Capulet – fall in love at the Capulet Ball. Forbidden by their family allegiances, they marry in secret. Hilarity ensues… Well, sort of.

THEATRE | NOT: LADY CHATTERLEY’S LOVER | SATURDAY 3 NOVEMBER

A laughter-filled parody of the D.H. Lawrence novel

 

 

Lady Chatterley welcomes home her husband, Clifford, from a war that has left the world in tatters. With Clifford’s legs also in tatters, he arrives at Wragby Hall confined to a wheelchair and clutching his secret.

As the couple grow apart Constance falls into a passionate, sexual and curiously experimental affair with estate gamekeeper: Mellors.

There will be long contemplative looks into the middle distance, moments of touching drama, plenty of farce and a gentle stroke of innuendo.
