A Walk in the Woods

We were delighted to recieve an email from Lee Blessing, author of the above play:- Dear Nikki Packham, Many thanks for your lovely email.  I’m delighted you’re doing my play in Bromley, and I’m very happy to hear you performed Dorothea.  Eleemosynary is one of my favorite plays (and perhaps my most-performed here in the U.S.), but it’s rarely been done in the UK or other Commonwealth countries.  I suppose it’s because spelling bees seem largely to be an American […]

The Trojan Women by Euripides – A BLT Radio Production

For the last 6 years BLT has entered the Kent Drama Association Play Festival. This year the Festival was for radio plays and many groups across Kent rose to the challenge to put together audio productions during the ‘lockdown’ period from October to March. At BLT we decided to perform the famous text of The Trojan Women by Euripides which includes several well known historical and mythical characters as well a chorus of women. This gave a large number of […]

ARTISTIC UPDATE FROM PAULINE

‘THE TROJAN WOMEN’, our entry to the KDA Audio Play Festival, is nearing completion thanks to the hard work and patience of our actors and wonderful technical team. They have shown such dedication and perseverance to get it right and make it sound as if we are all outside the walls of Troy and not scattered around South East London and Kent hidden in wardrobes, shrouded with duvets to dub down the sound. Now it’s the ‘big edit’ to add […]

Projects for which you can sign up now are: ‘The Shakespeare Review’ […]
