THE ORESTEIA

Mon 29 October at 6.00pm

   IDEAL FOR GCSE & ALEVEL DRAMA STUDENTS  

Splendid Productions

Splendid Productions present an epic, murderous tale of family, history, vengeance and honour in a story nearly as old as theatre.

Condensing Aeschylus’s classic trilogy into an hour, Splendid’s regal cast of three retell the story of King Agamemnon, his queen Clytemnestra, and their children, Iphigenia, Electra and Orestes. A legendary family born to power, but destined to rip itself apart in a bloody cycle of tragedy.

Splendid’s new creative adaptation explores the place where rage meets justice in an artful, political, physical, musical, entertainingly furious – and furiously entertaining – piece of theatrical magic.

Tickets £10 (£7 school groups    

AN EVENING OF MAGIC

Wed 31 October at 7.00pm

A charity event for the London Spinal Cord Injury Centre

Following the success of An Evening of Magic 2017, we are back again with another spellbinding evening!

This time, award-winning magician Ian Vallance is joined by none other than Daniel Radcliffe’s stunt-double in the Harry Potter films: David Holmes. For over a decade, David was the stunt-double for Daniel Radcliffe until a horrendous on-set accident left him paralysed for life.

The first half will see a set of mesmerising magic from Ian, with the second half giving the audience an insight into how the magic of the Harry Potter films was created in a series of interviews, stories and clips with David.

A full bar service will be running, so book now for a great evening – a positive alternative to Hallowe’en!

Tickets £8
