Pirates of Penzance

by

W.S. Gilbert and Arthur Sullivan
The grand masters of melody and comedy! Brilliant music and witty dialog. “Pirates” is their masterpeice! CherryOrchard1

The Cherry Orchard

by

Anton Chekhov

Madame Ranevskaya is a spoiled aging aristocratic lady, who returns from a trip to Paris to face the loss of her magnificent Cherry Orchard estate after a default on the mortgage. In denial, she continues living in the past, deluding herself and her family, while the beautiful cherry trees are being axed down by the re-possessor Lopakhin, her former serf, who has his own agenda.

Inspector General

by

Nikolai Gogol

The punchline of Gogol’s play is that Khlestakov is no better than the fawning townsfolk who take him to be an important St Petersburg official. The brilliance of the writing is that he is no worse. He is guilty of opportunism­ – and what hungry man wouldn’t be? – but they are still guiltier, for sustaining a system­ they know to be corrupt.

Returning to Haifa

by

Naomi Wallace and Ismail Ghassan

The play shows a Palestinian couple returning to Haifa in 1967 in search of the house and son they were forced to abandon 20 years previously during mass evictions by Israeli forces. They constantly debate whether they are right to make the journey. When they arrive, they find their old home occupied by the widowed Miriam who fled from Poland after her father was sent to Auschwitz and who adopted the couple’s son and brought him up as a naturalised Israeli.

Whose Afraid of Virginia Wolff

by

Edward Albee

It has often been pointed out that George and Martha, the names of the central couple, are the names of the first president of the United States and his wife. A modern day parable can also be detected. All these possibilities are contained in the larger theme that Albee’s dialogue keeps pointing out: the slipping between truth and illusion.

The Father

by

Florian Zeller

The Moliere Prize for France’s best play, The Father makes us see things as if through the confused eyes of Andre, as he struggles to make sense of a progressively befuddling world. Sound grim? It’s not. It’s a play that constantly confounds expectations and works almost like a thriller, with a sinister Pinteresque edge, as complete strangers keep on turning up in Andre’s flat.
