Ray Rackham Productions present:

FREDDIE, TED and the DEATH of JOE ORTON
by Don Cotter
Directed by Ray Rackham

London Theatre Workshop, Leadenhall Market, 88 Gracechurch Street (above the New Moon pub), London EC3V 0DN

 Commemorating the 50th anniversary of the partial decriminalisation of homosexuality in England and Wales, this tragi-comedy is a fascinating new play from an exciting new playwright. Set in Brighton, England during the 1960s, middle-aged Freddie is suffering from undiagnosed Obsessive Compulsive Disorder and has inherited a three bedroom house which he now shares with his younger partner, the aspiring musician, Ted. When Freddie intercepts a life-changing letter addressed to Ted, his fragile hold on reality begins to crumble.

“But that’s how things used to be. It’s 1967. We’re legal now. No more living in fear. No more waiting for the dreaded knock upon the door. Times are changing for the better, Freddie, and we have to change with them. That’s why I’m catching that train tomorrow. And that’s why you have to let me.”

Nearest Public Transport and directions: Monument Tube (directions: from Monument station walk along Gracechurch Street, past House of Fraser and TK Maxx up towards Cornhill and Bishopsgate. We are opposite the Crosse Keys pub and above the New Moon Pub on the corner of Leadenhall Market).

Times:
Monday to Saturday at 7.30pm

Prices:
Ticket Price: £16, concessions £12.

NOW OUT ON ILLUMINATIONS DVD AND BLU-RAY

MATTHEW BOURNE’S THE CAR MAN

Winner of the Evening Standard’s Award for “Musical Event of the Year” in 2000
One of modern dance’s most thrilling and entertaining shows based on Bizet’s popular opera Carmen
Filmed live at Sadler’s Wells for Sky Arts in 2015 and screened in cinemas worldwide

First seen in 2000, The Car Man is a signature production for internationally acclaimed choreographer, Matthew Bourne.
The stage show has been a smash-hit in the UK and around the world and this recording for Sky Arts was made at Sadler’s Wells during the show’s must recent revival in 2015.

Loosely based on Bizet’s popular opera, Carmen, and notable for its frank depictions of violence and sex, it has one of the most thrilling and instantly recognisable scores in classical music, brilliantly arranged by Terry Davies to create a complete score.

The familiar 19th Century Spanish cigarette factory becomes a greasy 1960s garage-diner in the American mid-west where the dreams and passions of a small town are shattered by the arrival of a handsome stranger. Fuelled by heat and desire, the townsfolk are driven into an unstoppable spiral of greed, lust, betrayal and revenge.

Lez Bortherston’s epic set design and Chris Davey’s meticulously zoned lighting perfectly complement Matthew Bourne’s vivid choreographic storytelling, which reveals influences of noir cinema, principally the various versions of James M. Cain’s The Postman Always Rings Twice.

EXTRAS
The Making of The Car Man (17 minutes) features interviews with leading dancers Zizi Strallen, Chris Trenfield, Dominic North and Kate Lyons
in addition to composer Terry Davies and New Adventures’ founder, Matthew Bourne.

THE BLACK CAT CABARET
Ends 31st December 2017

London’s favourite purrrveyors of dark and daring cabaret entertainment return with a spectacular festive
show at Christmas In Leicester Square. Starting Saturday 11th November, and rounding off the run with a
huge New Year’s Eve ball, Black Cat Cabaret’s show will bring high-kicking showgirls, jaw-dropping
acrobats, comic street singers, musicians, aerialists and a belle epoque sense of giddy abandonment to the fine
feline surroundings of the wooden-panelled, 1920’s Paradiso spiegeltent. The venue is located in one of
London’s most iconic squares – specially transformed for the season into a traditional European Christmas
market, complete with hand-crafted goods and delicious festive food and drinks.

As seen at the Underbelly Festival this summer, The Black Cat is the place to experience modern cabaret in all
of its wondrous forms – from the sacred to the profane, the lyrical to the downright louche. Inspired by vintage,
after-hours Montmartre, this full-length show is made up of a veritable who’s who of the London scene.

Presided over by The Black Cat’s “compère beyond compare” Dusty Limits, the show’s combination of cabaret, musical
and comic acts with high skills circus, original music and choreography makes this a performance like no other.
International special guests for this seasonal run include daredevil cyr wheel maestro Jo Moss, bawdy operatic
physical comedy from Bowjangles quartet, spine-tingling, jaw-dropping cellist and vocalist Laura Moody,
strange and seductive drag starlet Meth, and pristine pedlars of partner acrobatics Leon & Klodi. All of whom
will be appearing alongside perennial Black Cat favourites Dusty Limits, Katharine Arnold, Missy Fatale,
Lili La Scala and Florian Brooks.

In addition to five festive dates across November and December, Black Cat is inviting guests to make the leap
into 2018 with a New Year’s Eve soirée like no other. Revellers at The Black Cat Ball will be treated to a cabaret
show, a promenade circus spectacle presented by Dusty Limits, live music from carnival show-band
extraordinaire Tankus the Henge, and an extended set from The Black Cat Dandy DJs -guaranteed to keep guests
dancing all night. With a dress code of ‘gold, red or black; silver-screen sirens & dapper gents’ price of
admission includes a glass of bubbly and entry for the whole night.

Bishopsgate Institute presents

WEST SIDE STORY
Based on a Conception of Jerome Robbins
Book by Arthur Laurents, lyrics by Stephen Sondheim with music by Leonard Bernstein

The Great Hall, Bishopsgate Institute, 230 Bishopsgate, London EC2M 4QH

From 26th June until 1st July 2018

West Side Story is set on the streets of New York’s Upper West Side and explores the rivalry between two gangs, The Jets and The Sharks. Amidst all the gang warfare, Tony from The Jets falls in love with Maria, who is the sister of the leader of The Sharks. The dark themes, sophisticated music score and electric writing bring the story of Romeo and Juliet into the 20th century.

The Bishopsgate Institute production of West Side Story with full orchestra will be performed to celebrate the centennials of the birth of Leonard Bernstein, who composed West Side Story, and of Jerome Robbins, who directed and choreographed the original production. This high-quality amateur production is presented by arrangement with Music Theatre International (Europe) and ties in seamlessly with themes highlighted in Bishopsgate Institute’s special collections and archives which contain images and materials exploring cultural tensions and post-war daily urban life in both New York and London. The piece is based on a conception of Jerome Robbins, with music written by Leonard Bernstein and lyrics written by Stephen Sondheim.

This production is under amateur licence and the actors will be amateurs, but the creative team and the orchestra are multi-award nominated professionals who have been invited to ensure the highest quality of experience for the cast and audience, in line with Bishopsgate Institute’s philosophy. The production will be directed by Toby Hine and choreographed by Lemington Ridley, with the Musical Director to be announced. The show will be produced by Francesca Canty for Bishopsgate Institute.

This production will be set in the stunning 120-year-old Great Hall at Bishopsgate Institute, performed in the round with limited cabaret seating. Providing a rare opportunity to experience the show with a full 29-piece orchestration, played by the best up-and-coming professional musicians in an extraordinary setting, this will be an up close and personal performance as the streets of New York take over the Great Hall, with cast members weaving in and out of the audience as the show goes on.

Casting announcements and further details coming soon.
