|Then get ready for April’s unmissable Bar show…
|The Height of the Storm by Florian Zeller André and Madeleine have been in love for over fifty years, but this weekend, as their daughters visit, something feels unusual. Flowers arrive, but who sent them? A woman from the past turns up, but who is she? Why is a man sharpening knives? And why does André feel like he isn’t there at all? A compelling and thought-provoking drama from the writer of The Father. 26 – 30 April (in the Bar) Book now
|Also coming soon and booking now…
|Separate Tables By Terrence Rattigan In a 1950’s Bournemouth hotel where the furnishings and the residents have both seen better days, secrets and scandal lie beneath the carefully-placed tablecloths. Marooned on separate tables, Rattigan presents a rich collection of characters who superbly present the vulnerability, loneliness and misplaced pride of lives essentially unfulfilled. 12 – 20 May Book now
|A Few Good Men by Aaron Sorkin The original stage version of the famous movie comes to BLT! Two US Marines are on trial over the death of a fellow Marine. At first, their young rookie lawyer is more interested in playing softball than fighting their case. But as events unfold he finds himself valiantly defending his clients and uncovering a shocking conspiracy. A gripping – and timely – drama that puts the military mentality on the stand. 9 – 17 June Book now
|Extra audition! Our just-announced October show ‘Present Laughter’ by Noel Coward, will be auditioning on Sunday April 16th at 12pm
|In this quintessential Coward comedy, Garry Essendine, successful actor and loveable rogue, is having a mid-life crisis. Despite the rather imaginative efforts of his secretary and ex-wife to rein in his behaviour and keep him out of trouble, chaos inevitably ensues along with a constant stream of largely unexpected and unwelcome visitors to his London studio. Auditioning Sunday April 16th at 12pm. (Playing dates: 13 – 21 October 2023)
