Wilde Wilde Women

By Oscar Wilde. Scenes directed by Pauline Armour, Bethan Boxall and Paul Doust

Please join us for a celebration of the writing of Oscar Wilde as twenty actors bring you a selection of scenes from four celebrated plays – ‘The Importance of Being Earnest’, ‘Lady Windermere’s Fan’, ‘An Ideal Husband’ and ‘A Woman of No Importance.’ Our ‘Wilde, Wilde Women’   along with several gentlemen will delight and confound you with their views on life, love, marriage, morality, ancestry and of course fashion. We hope that nothing will cause you to ‘resist the temptation’ of being dazzled, amazed and thoroughly well entertained.

The Trojan Women

by Euripides 415 BC, Translated and adapted by Edward Philip Coleridge 1910, Adapted and directed by Pauline Armour 2020

In Greek mythology the Trojan War was a war between the Greeks and the people of Troy. The strife began after the Trojan Prince Paris abducted Helen, wife of Menelaus of Sparta. When Menelaus demanded her return the Trojans refused. Menelaus then persuaded his brother Agamemnon to lead an army against Troy. Troy was besieged by the Greeks for ten years and was finally beaten when the Greek army built and hid inside a huge wooden horse which the Trojans thought was a gift and dragged inside their city walls. In the night, the Greek army emerged from the horse and slaughtered all of the men and boys in Troy. ‘The Trojan Women’ is set in the immediate aftermath of the sacking of Troy as the women wait amongst the ruins before they are exiled as slaves to the Greeks.

This adaptation is non–specific in terms of era, and could be in any war zone throughout history, including what continues to take place in many countries of the world today.

Que Sera Sera – What Ever WILL be WILL be: BLT Does Shakespeare

by the BLT team as inspired by The Bard

Please join us as more than thirty actors celebrate the bard’s birthday drawing inspiration from ‘The Complete Works’. There’s music and song, comedy and tragedy, satire and sketches, parody and poetry, sometimes irreverent, often bawdy, occasionally sentimental but always engaging. Come along and spot your favourite characters, listen out for a well known quote, tap your feet, hum a tune, laugh a lot, perhaps cry a little and raise a glass to both the past and to the return of our theatre in the very near future.

Handbagged  

By Alan Ayckbourn. Directed by Pauline and Dan Armour

The Queen has met with every prime minister each week that she has been in London since  coming to the throne in 1952. In Moira Buffini’s imagined account of those weekly meetings from 1979 to 1990 between the Queen and Margaret Thatcher, she concocts a delicious, bitter–sweet confection of what might well have transpired on those tricky Tuesday afternoons – complemented by a dazzling cast of national and international politicians and personalities. Recapture your memories of that period – laugh, groan, smirk, applaud, maybe shed a few tears – but above all have a fun night out back at BLT.

Photograph 51

by Anna Ziegel. Directed by Scott James

Does Rosalind Franklin know how precious her photograph is? In the race to unlock the secret of life it could be the one to hold the key. With rival male scientists looking everywhere for the answer, who will be the first to see it and, more importantly, understand it? Anna Ziegler’s thrilling play looks at the woman who cracked DNA’s double helix and asks what is sacrificed in the pursuit of science, love and a place in history. First performed to great acclaim in the UK in London’s West End in 2015 with Nicole Kidman playing Rosalind Franklin.
