HMS Pinafore



by

W.S. Gilbert and Arthur Sullivan
The all time Gilbert and Sullivan favorite. .



























Blithe Spirit



by


Noel Coward




Seeking background material for a mystery he is working on, novelist Charles Condomine invites eccentric medium Madame Arcati
to his home in Lympne, Kent, to conduct a seance. As Charles, his wife Ruth and their guests the Bradmans barely restrain themselves from laughing,
Madame Arcati performs peculiar rituals and finally goes into a trance. Charles then hears the voice
of his dead first wife, Elvira . When he discovers that the others cannot hear her, he passes off his odd behaviour
as a joke. When Arcati recovers, she is certain that something extraordinary has
occurred, but everyone denies it.











Table Manners

by

Alan Ayckbourn

"Oh" is not widely acknowledged as one of the funniest words in English. Nor does the simple "aah" generally induce
convulsive giggles.
Yet these unassuming monosyllables acquire brute force in Alan Ayckbourn's "Table Manners,"
crippling you with laughter that shakes the body and, more subversively, fractures the soul.
"Table Manners" suggests nothing so much as Chekhov pumped full of nitrous oxide.
Like "The Seagull" it is built on one of the wonderful paradoxes of theater:
deeply unhappy people can generate profound happiness in audiences allowed to eavesdrop on their lives.
Out-of-town visitors descending on a resentful homebody in the country.
That's the starting point in at least three Chekhov plays,
"The Seagull," "Uncle Vanya" and "The Cherry Orchard."








The Caretaker

by



Harold Pinter


In a letter published during the play's original run in The Sunday Times of London, Pinter wrote: "As far as I'm concerned 'The Caretaker' is funny up to a point. Beyond that it ceases to be funny, and it was because of that point that I wrote it." The play engineers more laughs after Aston's confession, but the tone has subtly altered, as we begin to sense that the squalid, arrogant Davies may just be the only character in the play equipped with something close to full humanity.









Love Letters





A. R. Gurney



Andrew and Melissa read the notes, letters and cards in which over nearly 50 years, they discuss their hopes and ambitions, dreams and disappointments,
victories and defeats that have passed between them throughout their separated lives. Starring Brooke Pearson and Sarah Brock.































































The Legacy of Marcel Marceau

Adventures in Mime & Space

A Tribute by



Rob Mermin





THE LEGACY OF MIME MARCEL MARCEAU: A TRIBUTE BY ROB MERMIN?

Rob Mermin, founder of Circus Smirkus, was a student of the legendary French mimes Marcel Marceau and his teacher Etienne Decroux. Rob presents unabashedly reverent yet humorous memories of training with his mentors. Rare documentary footage of the masters performing and teaching is accompanied by Rob's personal anedotes and live demonstration of mime technique, bringing to life the essence of what Marceau himself dubbed "the art of silence."

"Like you, dear friend, I live to enlighten dreams. It is our common task, to bring light to the art we love, the Silent Language of the Soul." Marcel Marceau, in a letter to Rob Mermin.
