Friday's Child - Austin Hawkins

Friday’s Child is from the pen of local playwright Austin Hawkins. Austin’s one act plays have won a clutch of awards in recent years in theatre festivals for actors, directors and for his original scripts, including ‘Runner Up’ in a National play writing competition.

In this three act play ‘Friday’s Child‘, Alan and Mary Hurst are predictably going about their lives, he an insurance executive and magistrate, and Mary a ‘pillar of the community’, playing bridge, in the Townswomen’s Guild and doing charitable works.

Returning from the office one evening Alan has a chance encounter with a young sex worker, Sharon, and agrees to go back to her flat. Their meeting triggers a chain of unwelcome revelations as Sharon, Alan and Mary have their settled lives challenged and face a catalyst for change.
Hang on to your seats as the verbal sparks start to fly!

Synopsis

Every year, Queen Green holds a competition so that she might find a suitor for her son, Prince Pea. But her meticulous, and often impossible, challenges have (quite deliberately) left him a bachelor.

So when the mischievous Mandarin Orange kidnaps the original fairy tale Princess, Cinderella, to train his two daughters, will Prince Pea finally be wed?

Or will the unique charms of the boisterous Raspberry Sorbet win his mother over? And in a land where fruit and vegetables walk and talk, what exactly will be hidden beneath that famous mattress?

The Merchant of Venice - William Shakespeare

The Merchant of Venice – Shakespeare

directed by Jon Miles

The Merchant of Venice, with its celebrated and moving passages, remains one of Shakespeare’s most beautiful plays.

Depending on whom you ask, it also remains one of his most repulsive.
Was Shakespeare being anti-Semitic, or was he merely exploring anti-Semitism?

Things are not always what they seem.

Blackadder (at Pavilions) –
Richard Curtis/Ben Elton

 

Directed by Amy Burton-Smith

 

With its fourth and final chapter the chronicles of the Blackadder dynasty brings us into the twentieth century and into a much darker period of history.

Haunting Julia - Alan Ayckbourn

Haunting Julia – Alan Ackbourn

 

directed by John Miles

 

A play for today. It touches on the failures of education and parenting, on media pressure and overdoses.

Kurt Cobain comes to mind.

More universally, Haunting Julia mourns how in adolescence and adulthood, we do our loves wrong.

Blackadder

Teignmouth Players Return to the Pavilions Teignmouth for Blackadder the Third

Last Summer theTeignmouth Players took to the stage at the new Pavilions Teignmouth auditorium for the first time and hit just the right note with their much acclaimed production of Blackadder II.
It seems that the Players are ‘on a roll’ at this venue as they return this month with a cunning plan to reprise the Blackadder connection with three episodes from Blackadder the Third.   These hugely popular scripts, originally for Television, are written by Ben Elton and Richard Curtis who will generously donate their royalties from this production to Comic Relief.
