by Arthur Rochester When November’s planned production of Hedda Gabler had to be replaced, Pauline Armour’s choice of Alan Bennett’s Talking Heads could be described as inspired. Originally written for nineteen-eighties television, these monologues are ideally suited to live performance in a small auditorium and, on the evening I attended, received one of the most enthusiastic responses I can recall at BLT for some time.

MENTORING SCHEME FOR POTENTIAL NEW DIRECTORS One of the suggestions that arose from ‘the pull up a chair’ initiative with Hilary Cordery, our Chair, is that we formalise a mentoring programme for prospective directors who need to gain experience prior to initially submitting ideas for a possible bar production. This has happened informally for some years with some members shadowing experienced directors to gain experience to help them decide if directing is a route they would like to follow. The Board […]

Any bookings made for Hedda Gabler can be transferred to Talking Heads but should this not be required please contact the box office preferably by email email@example.com or […]
