Looking for your big break on the silver screen?

We have been asked by John Alford, a local film maker, if we could provide two actors – one male and one female around 35 years old to take part in a short film for a regional film competition. Filming will be over a weekend in September in the Bromley area. The dialogue is quite brief and concerns a relationship between the two actors over a 2 way radio when the woman is sending out an SOS message. If you’d like to get involved, […]

A message from Hilary Cordery – our new Chair

I am delighted to have taken over from Jane Buckland as Chair of the Board of Trustees of BLT.

Review of ‘Of Mice And Men’

By Arthur Rochester John Steinbeck’s acclaimed 1937 play has long been regarded as an American literary classic and, having made regular appearances on the English stage, is today a set text in the GCSE and ‘A’ level curricula. Mike Savill, having waited years for the performing rights to become available, finally succeeded in bringing it to the BLT stage in June. The play paints a vivid picture of life in the great American depression, as itinerant workers roamed the wide-open […]

BLT Development – Act One Scene One

Take One Lights …. Action Yes. The first phase of the repair, refurbishment and improvement of BLT is about to start. The roof over the stage – which not only leaks but, being made of fragile corrugated sheeting, also bangs and rattles in high winds – is to be re-covered during our summer break. At the same time, we are going to take down, clean and service all the stage lights and re-rig them once the new roof is on. […]

Review of ‘The Breath Of Life’

By Roxana Graves I came away from this performance thinking. I like that. Despite that, it had been an exceptionally warm day and so it felt rather tropical in the bar. Arguably not the best day to imagine being inside a cold, slightly shabby flat on the Isle of Wight. Yet imagine I did. Frances travels to the island specifically to see Madeleine, the ex-mistress of her ex-husband Martin. Their affair, (I hesitate to call it that, it being so […]
