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 […]

Review of Walk in the Woods

Summary: outstanding – go. A world weary Russian and an idealistic and earnest American locked in nuclear weapons negotiations provided a gripping night’s entertainment. The script was clever.  Nearly 2 hours of believable mind games and shadow boxing between the two protagonists as they struggle to engage with each other about the problems of negotiating nuclear weapons treaties.  The general tone of the play was thoughtful and serious yet leavened by many good jokes and comedic moments.  The execution of […]

Hobson’s Choice

Important announcement Hobson’s Choice will now open on Monday 11th April (not Friday 8th April as advertised). COVID has hit the Hobson’s Choice cast, meaning that they haven’t been able to meet as a full cast for over 3 weeks, so we’ve made the decision to move the opening night in order to give them more time to rehearse together.  The cast are all well on their way to recovery, almost all of them are out of isolation and they’re […]

Board announcement

Following the resignations of Pat Jones and Jacqui Nelson from our Board last year, we would like to say a huge thank you to both of them for their significant contributions whilst board members. Of course they both continue to be active supporters of our theatre – as we saw when Pat hosted a sell out evening with Dame Eileen Atkins. We are also delighted to announce that Jess Jenner, Sophie Gissing and Rebecca Ffrancon Davies have agreed to be co-opted […]

Dame Eileen and her return to BLT

On 13th February, after a hiatus of 61 years, multi-award winning actress Dame Eileen Atkins CBE DBE made a triumphant return to the BLT stage. Amazingly, she first appeared at our theatre aged 27, in a play called The Square by Marguerite Duras, which she recalled with great fondness to the sell-out audience, saying “I can honestly say that Bromley gave me my first big break”. Interviewed by our own Pat Jones, Dame Eileen delighted us all with stories from her life in theatre, film and television, from […]
