LOCKED UP
by Heather Simpkin
directed by James McAndrew

Tristan Bates Theatre, 1a Tower Street, Covent Garden, London WC2H 9NP

Tuesday 10th until Saturday 28th July 2018
(Previews: Tuesday 10th and Wednesday 11th July 2018)

Two men are trapped in a confined space which they interpret as their cell. Since being taken against their will, the only world that exists for them is that cell and an enigmatic White Room where there are few clues to their immediate predicament. Desperation grows as Declan (Samuel Ranger) and Topher (Conor Cook) try to find a way out and discover answers to their questions. As the tension builds both characters reflect upon each other and their situation. Will they buckle under the strain of emotional endurance or can they remain rational enough to piece together the twists and turns of their absurd situation? Poignant, wryly humorous and scarily relevant. Bold, punchy and powerful new writing.

Times:
Evenings: 7.45pm
Saturday matinees: 2.30pm

Running Time: 1 hour 10 minutes (no interval).

Ticket Prices:
Tickets: £15 (£12.50 concessions)

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.

The role of Maria has gone to the brilliant Emily McDouall and the role of Tony has gone to the hugely-talented James Gower-Smith. Anita will be played by Victoria Greenway, Riff will be played by Luke Leahy, Bernardo will be played by Christopher Georgiou, Doc will be played by Stephen Hewitt, Krupke will be played by Drew Paterson, Schrank will be played by Will Howells, Velma will be played by Claire Pattie, Anybody’s will be played by Lauren Pears and Somewhere Girl will be played by Marsha Blake.

The rest of the cast includes The Jets, who are: Callum Walsh (Snowboy), Joshua Yeardley (Action), Charlie Smith (Baby John), Glen Jordan (A-Rab), Chris Hughes-Copping (Big Deal), Ben Woolley (Diesel), Adrian Hirschmuller, Lora Jones, Jessie Davidson (Graziella), Tess Robinson, Caroline Scott, Sofia Sjostrand, Jennifer Thompson, Rachel Wheeler and Martha Stone. The Sharks include: Francois Vanhoutte (Chino), Dan Davies, Motohiro Okubo, James Monz, Leoncio Hernandez, Chloe Heatlie, Mariana Alfaro, Lois Howarth, Beatrice Mori, Paris Evans, Vicky Gkioni and Gamze Ozen.
