Elaine Cassidy To Play Madame De Tourvel In Les Liaisons Dangereuses

Elaine Cassidy will be taking on the role of Madame de Tourvel in the Donmar’s production of Les Liaisons Dangereuses, replacing Michelle Dockery who regrettably has had to withdraw from the production prior to the beginning of rehearsals.

Donmar Artistic Director Josie Rourke said: “We are delighted to welcome Elaine Cassidy back to the Donmar playing Madame de Tourvel, I can’t wait to work with Elaine and our fantastic company when rehearsals start on Monday, and hope to work with Michelle in the future“.

Donmar Artistic Director Josie Rourke will direct Les Liaisons Dangereuses, Christopher Hampton’s stage adaptation of Choderlos de Laclos’ 1782 novel. Elaine will join a previously announced cast which includes Adjoa Andoh, Theo Barklem-Biggs, Morfydd Clark, Edward Holcroft, Janet McTeer, Jennifer Saayeng, Una Stubbs and Dominic West.

In 1782, Choderlos de Laclos’ novel of sex, intrigue and betrayal in pre-revolutionary France scandalised the world. Two hundred years later, Christopher Hampton’s irresistible adaptation swept the board, winning the Olivier and Evening Standard Awards for Best Play. Josie Rourke’s production will now mark the plays’ thirty-year revival.

Les Liaisons Dangereuses, will be broadcast live in cinemas in partnership with National Theatre Live on 28th January 2016. For further information visit www.ntlive.com.

Former lovers, the Marquise de Merteuil and Vicomte de Valmont now compete in games of seduction and revenge. Merteuil incites Valmont to corrupt the innocent Cécile Volanges before her wedding night but Valmont has targeted the peerlessly virtuous and beautiful Madame de Tourvel. While these merciless aristocrats toy with others’ hearts and reputations, their own may prove more fragile than they supposed.

Gina McKee set to reprise role in The Mother at the Tricycle Theatre

Florian Zeller’s The Mother will transfer into London next spring, with Gina McKee and Richard Clothier set to reprise their roles from the Ustinov Studio production.

The critically acclaimed play premiered at the Ustinov Studio in Bath earlier this year, and is now set to run at the off-West End venue Tricycle Theatre from Thursday 21st January to Saturday 6th March 2016.

BAFTA-winning actress Gina McKee (Richard III, The Aristocrats) returns as Anna, The Mother, alongside Richard Clothier (King Lear, Richard III) as Pierre, The Father. Also reprising his role from the original production is William Postlethwaite (Brave New World, Longing) as Nicholas, The Son. They will be joined by new cast member Frances McNamee (Love’s Labour’s Lost, Pride and Prejudice) as Élodie, The Girl.

Anne loved that time in her life when she prepared breakfast each morning for her two young children, Sara and Nicolas. Now her children are grown and have lives and loves of their own. Spending hours alone, Anne has convinced herself that a weekend seminar in Dijon is a front for her husband Pierre’s affair.

Perhaps Nicolas and his girlfriend Élodie will break up and her favoured son will return. He will come down for breakfast, she will put on her new red dress and they will go out. After all, tomorrow is Mother’s Day…

The Mother is written by Florian Zeller. The award-winning French playwright also wrote The Father, which is currently playing at the Wyndham’s Theatre in London’s West End following its 2014 sell-out run at the Ustinov Theatre.

The Theatre Royal Bath production is a new translation by Christopher Hamption, who won an Academy Award for Best Adapted Screenplay for the adaption of his own play, Dangerous Liasons. It is directed by Laurence Boswell, artistic director of the Ustinov Studio.

The Mother comes to the Tricycle Theatre in 2016 as part of the London venue’s Spring at the Tricycle season. It opens on Thursday 21st January 2106 and will run until Saturday 5th March 2016. Performances will run from Monday to Saturday, 7.30pm, with matinees performances on Wednesdays (2pm, from 3rd February) and Saturdays (3pm, from 30th January, 2016).


Alan Bennett’s Hit Comedy at The Grand



Nicholas Farrell, Belinda Lang, David Robb lead the cast

  download (30)

A new production of Alan Bennett’s hit comedy is in his hometown of Leeds next April as part of a UK Tour.


Olivier Award-nominated Rachel Kavanaugh will direct Nicholas Farrell (as Guy Burgess), Belinda Lang(Coral Browne and Her Majesty the Queen) and David Robb (Anthony Blunt) in award-winning masterpiece, Single Spies.


Bennett’s espionage double bill – An Englishman Abroad and A Question of Attribution – is a pointedly satirical snapshot of two members of the infamous ‘Cambridge Five’, Guy Burgess and Anthony Blunt, who were recruited as spies by the Soviet Union during World War II. 


In 1950’s Moscow, Coral Browne receives an invitation to lunch with shunned Soviet spy, Guy Burgess, with the sole instruction to ‘bring a tape measure’.  An Englishman Abroad is a wry and touching play which chronicles the pair’s fleeting friendship and Burgess’ attempts to cling to his way of life as a Soviet citizen.


A Question of Attribution gives a glimpse into Anthony Blunt’s life of espionage within the very walls of Buckingham Palace.  Following his double-life as an art historian to royalty and a Soviet spy, this witty tale of forgery and deceit culminates in a sharp and candid interrogation from Her Majesty the Queen herself.



Alan Bennett’s Single Spies is at Leeds Grand Theatre from Tuesday 12th to Saturday 16th April


Tickets are on sale now priced from £19.50 to £35

Alfred Hitchcock’s classic spy thriller – The 39 Steps



Monday 14 – Saturday 19 March

Alfred Hitchcock’s classic spy thriller, The 39 Steps, brilliantly and hilariously recreated for the stage as the smash hit Olivier Award Winning Comedy.

Follow the incredible adventures of our handsome hero Richard Hannay, complete with stiff-upper-lip, British gung-ho and pencil moustache as he encounters dastardly murders, double-crossing secret agents, and, of course, devastatingly beautiful women.

This wonderfully inventive and gripping comedy thriller features four fearless actors, playing 139 roles in 100 minutes of fast-paced fun and thrilling action.

The 39 Steps is a melodrama adapted from the 1915 novel by John Buchan and the 1935 film by Alfred Hitchcock. The original concept and production of a four-actor version of the story was by Simon Corble and Nobby Dimon. Patrick Barlow rewrote this adaptation in 2005.

The play’s concept calls for the entirety of the 1935 adventure film The 39 Steps to be performed with a cast of only four. One actor plays the hero, Richard Hannay, an actress (or sometimes actor) plays the three women with whom he has romantic entanglements, and two other actors play every other character in the show: heroes, villains, men, women, children and even the occasional inanimate object. This often requires lightning fast quick-changes and occasionally for them to play multiple characters at once. Thus the film’s serious spy story is played mainly for laughs, and the script is full of allusions to (and puns on the titles of) other Alfred Hitchcock films, including Strangers on a Train, Rear Window, Psycho, Vertigo and North by Northwest.

Tickets: From £13.50

The 39 Steps was Peggy Ashcroft’s second film


Robert Donat was affectionately known as the Monte Cristo man


One of the film’s major motifs is the confining, sexually-frustrating institution of marriage.


North by Northwest (1959) is widely considered Hitchcock’s “American Thirty-Nine Steps.”


John Buchan’s official title was First Baron Tweedsmuir of Elsfield, Oxfordshire


Hitchcock’s film was remade twice both in the UK: The Thirty-Nine Steps (1959), d. Ralph Thomas andThe Thirty-Nine Steps (1978), d. Don Sharp


The 1978 version starred Robert Powell as Hannay


The 39 Steps is only one of Buchan’s several works that feature the character Richard Hannay


Madeleine Carroll from the Hitchcock film was the first in a notorious line of Hitchcock’s female stars that later included Grace Kelly and Tippi Hedren


At the old Wembley Stadium, 39 steps needed to be climbed to reach the Royal Box and collect a winner’s trophy


The 1959 version of The 39 Steps has by far the most location filming of any of the three versions of the movie. Filming took place over a large portion of central Scotland albeit mostly in the Trossachs area


The 39 Steps was Hitchcock’s first film with a classic theme that he modelled repeatedly for the remainder of his career


Trains are a major theme in Hitchcock’s films: The Lady Vanishes, Strangers on a Train, Sabotage, North By Northwest and The 39 Steps


Hitchock was reported to say, “What interests me in the drama of being handcuffed” as one of the major themes of the film


There is no Mr Memory in the novel, but he is based on a real-life character


Hitchhcock’s birthday was the 13 August


Hitchcock was a mean practical joker. He handcuffed Robert Donat and Madeleine Carroll together for their very first scene and then “lost” the key for over an hour


During World War One, Buchan worked for the British War Propaganda Bureau and as a war correspondent for The Times, before joining the Intelligence Corps in France. It was during the first few months of the war that, whilst confined to a bed and recovering from illness, Buchan wrote his most famous novel, “The Thirty-Nine Steps”, which was subsequently published in 1915


In the spring of 1915, Buchan became one of five journalists attached to the British Army, responsible for writing articles for both The Times and the Daily News


Buchan won the Victory Medal and the British War Medal


Patrick Barlow appeared in the Rolo television commercial where a honeymooning couple are travelling on a train with a love heart drawn on the carriage window in the condensation. There is one last Rolo left in the wrapper and they are both smiling at each other all lovey-dovey. They go through a tunnel, he looks at the sweet, not there! He looks at his wife who is chewing the last sweet innocently; he angrily wipes the love heart from the window. He didn’t love her enough to save her his last Rolo


Patrick Barlow was Bridget Jones’s mother’s love interest in the film Bridget Jones’s Diary


Barlow also starred in Notting Hill, and Shakespeare in Love as Will Kemp


Another leading role of Barlow was as Toad in The Wind in The Willows at the National Theatre

The number thirty-nine, symbolizes understanding, thoughtfulness, meditation and mental superiority


The fastest train from London King’s Cross to Edinburgh is 4 hours and 19 minutes


The huge cantilever sections of the rail bridge spanning The Forth are one of the most familiar landmarks of Scotland. Completed in 1890, the bridge was constructed from 54,000 tonnes of steel, 194,000 tonnes of stone and concrete, and in excess of 21,000 tonnes of cement. This was the largest steel bridge in the world, using approximately 7,500,000 rivets produced by The Clyde Rivet Company. Success was not without its casualties and, throughout the course of construction, 57 men lost their lives


Today the bridge, now a ‘listed structure’, still carries about 150 trains each day across The Forth, and has been regularly maintained over the years. An extensive five-year refurbishment programme was undertaken at the turn of the millennium, costing in excess of £40m, and employing somewhere between 150 and 300 men per day, six days a week. At an average height above the general water level of some 361ft (m). It used to be said that as soon as the painting team had reached the far side of the bridge, it was time to start over at the beginning

Ignition 2015 Review

Stratford Circus – 28th October. Reviewed by Claire Roderick

Frantic Assembly’s Ignition programme runs workshops and trials around the UK to engage young men in theatre, and every year 12 are selected to come to London to create a performance. These are not drama schools kids, but lads with raw talent that may well have never considered working in the arts.

The company started work on the show on Saturday, and to produce something of such an amazing standard is nothing short of a miracle. The level of trust and camaraderie on stage makes it seem as if they have been working together for years. Directors Scott Graham, Neil Bettles and Jonnie Riordan (a graduate of Ignition) have worked with the company to produce a stunning show full of warmth and challenging society’s perceptions of youth. Through monologues and dance there is a continuing theme of “what I know”, being thought of as “a waster and an idiot” and “what if…” There is a lovely cheeky sense of humour throughout – who would have thought that otters were so funny? – but also some quiet, sombre moments focussing on the hidden struggles and regrets that young people face.

The young men delivering the monologues were all fantastic – each got the tone of their piece just right. The choreography is very clever. There is not much synchronised work, instead the dancers work together to throw, catch and support each other in energetic group sequences, interspersed with paired or individual segments. The whole effect is breathtakingly impressive – there is constant movement and change of focus, and the dancers are fearless. They launch themselves off tables, chairs and ladders into the arms of their fellow dancers with utter confidence, and manage to maintain the emotion in their faces.

The use of torches in the show is wonderful. In one segment “Can you see my face?”, the only lights are small torches held by dancers to illuminate their faces as they are moved around the stage by the company, creating a haunting effect as they stare into the light constantly, regardless of their body movement – as if taking a never-ending selfie. Larger torches are used to stunning effect to light one agitated dancer at a table. The light moves around him then blinds the audience before whipping back to the table to show a different person. This gets more and more complicated and spellbinding. Again, I just can’t believe they managed this in less than a week – superb!

This is such a worthwhile scheme, and I think that the cast have bright futures ahead of them. Even if they don’t, the looks on their faces at curtain call showed that this was a life-changing experience for them, and no one can ever call them wasters again.

Darlington Civic Theatre – Brave New World

Civic-Theatre-Hi-Res-Logo-1-117x300BRAVE NEW ADAPTATION OF A CLASSIC

Darlington Civic Theatre will soon welcome a brand new stage adaptation of Aldous Huxley’s ground-breaking novel BRAVE NEW WORLD, presented by Touring Consortium Theatre Company and Royal & Derngate Northampton which will run from Tuesday 10 to Saturday 14 November.

Brave New World, widely considered to be one of the finest and most prophetic dystopian novels of the twentieth century, bursts into life on stage in an adaptation by award-winning playwright Dawn King, directed by James Dacre, with original new music by the ground breaking British band These New Puritans.

download (29)Aldous Huxley’s Brave New World was first published in 1932, and is widely seen to be one of the most important novels of the 20th century, anticipating developments in reproductive technology, psychological manipulation and behavioural conditioning. Set in AD 2540 human life has been almost entirely industrialised, and humans are created and conditioned in a lab according to a strict caste system, in a World State whose motto is “Community, Identity, Stability”. Monogamy, the family unit and the ‘natural’ process of giving birth, are considered horrific and unnatural, and material comfort and physical pleasure – provided by the drug soma – represent society’s highest good.

Dawn King said, “Huxley’s novel is over eighty years old, but his vision of the future is shockingly familiar. In many ways, we already live in Brave New World: a glittering dystopia built on inequality, where people keep themselves distracted with empty pleasures, chemical stimulants and consumer goods. Adapting this huge work for the stage has been as tough and stimulating as anything I’ve ever done and a huge pleasure.”

Sophie-Ward-cGemma-Betts-225x300Sophie Ward stars as ‘Margaret Mond – the Regional World Controller for Western Europe’, which in Huxley’s novel is a male character. Dawn King said, “I took this decision primarily because as a feminist, I wanted to increase the gender equality of the show. I also felt that having a female world controller of Western Europe is more representative of our world today, and of a world of the future. In the novel the character is called ‘Mustapha Mond’, but in my adaptation I chose the name Margaret, for its obvious allusions. I think Sophie Ward is a great choice to play the role because ‘Mond’ is a person who has had to make hard decisions, has a strong sense of her own personal morality, and has real steely authority.”

Brave New World is at Darlington Civic Theatre from Tuesday 10 to Saturday 14 November. Tickets* are priced from £17.40

*All ticket prices include a £1 restoration levy.

Created By Andrew Day

Directed by Maggie Norris

 The Big House

Rio Cinema Dalston, London E8 2PB

Wednesday 18 November – Saturday 12 December

Running from her ex, a “Revenge Porn entrepreneur”, Faith takes shelter in the shadows of the Rio cinema – a century-old palace of dreams, now riddled with ghosts and memories.  But it is these ghosts of the past that point the way to her own freedom.  Walk with Faith through the bomb shelter, the feminist collective and the strip joint that make up the Rio’s colourful history.

The Big House returns this autumn with ELECTRIC, inspired by the history of the Rio (Dalston), and performed underneath the cinema to create a groundbreaking promenade performance. This is the first site specific production in the Rio Cinema, a unique and inspiring Art Deco venue, where the audience will be given the opportunity to journey under the building and explore the intimate rooms, designed specifically for this promenade performance.

Jasmin Alvarez will play ‘Clara Ludski’, alongside Henrietta Imoreh as ‘Faith’, James Hogarth as ‘William’, Auzelina Cookie Pinto as ‘Rose’, Kenan Sweeney-Tisson as ‘Truman’, Chris Adams as ‘Terry’, Delroy Thompson as ‘Joseph / Edison’, Derreem Haggins as ‘Congregation Member / Shyrone / Cameron’, James Hogarth as ‘Warden / Horace / William’, Jasmine Adolphus as ‘Kelly’, Knieke Miller as ‘Colette / Lily’, Marrae Collington-Francis as ‘Congregation Member / Shirley / Daryl, Melissa Madden as ‘Pastor George / Althea’, Mohammed Shafick as ‘Rocco’, Sam Abraham as ‘Benjamin’, Tyrell Jeremiah as ‘Tempo’, Zeki Ibraham as ‘Pastor Cedric / Dean, and Josh Blissett as ‘Anton / Jonny’.


Written by Andrew Day and Directed by The Big House Artistic Director Maggie Norris. Designed by Ellan Parry, along with Projection Design by Tony award winning Mic Pool (The 39 Steps). Sound Design by Ed Clarke(Frankenstein, NT) and Lighting Design by Peter Small (The Realness) ELECTRIC, promises to have the production value to match The Big House’s previous productions THE POLITRIX, THE REALNESS, PHOENIX and BABY/LON. It is these productions that have lead to The Big House quickly establishing a reputation as an important part of the London theatre scene:

Monty Python legend Terry Jones to direct world premiere of Jeepers Creepers

Monty Python legend Terry Jones is to direct the world premiere of Jeepers Creepers, a play about comedy star Marty Feldman and his ambitious wife, Lauretta.

Jeepers Creepers, written by Marty’s best-selling biographer Robert Ross, and starring David Boyle (Being Sellers, The Fool Who Dared to Dream) and Rebecca Vaughan (Austen’s Women, I, Elizabeth), will premiere in a four-week season in the Lounge at Leicester Square Theatre from Monday 18th January to Saturday 20th February, 2016.

Having written some of the nation’s favourite comedy in The Army Game and Round the Horne, Marty Feldman suddenly finds himself a star in his own right, with sketch show success for both the BBC and commercial TV. Then Hollywood comes a’knocking with the role of Igor (pronounced Eye~Gor!) in the Mel Brooks film Young Frankenstein. But while his wife Lauretta takes to the glamorous lifestyle with alacrity, can Marty come to terms with the burden of the fame he has always craved? Excess, depression, and the inevitable decline follow. Surely laughter, and the love of a strong woman can conquer all, although the eternal conflict of the clown refuses to fade. Is he laughed with, or laughed at?

Jeepers Creepers charts one of the most powerful and complex partnerships in comedy, through the unique gaze of one of the greatest: Marty Feldman.

Terry Jones has a personal connection to the play’s subject – he wrote sketches for and appeared in It’s Marty with Marty Feldman in the late 1960s. He said: “When I joined the writing team for The Frost Report, the first person to say ‘Hello’ and make me feel welcome was Marty Feldman. He was one of those very kind and very funny people who helped all the Pythons along the way. It’s lovely to be able to say a belated ‘Thank you’ by bringing him back to eye-popping life – sort of! – on the London stage.”

Produced by Martin Witts for Leicester Square Theatre.

CAST: David Boyle’s (Marty Feldman) acting credits include Peter Sellers in the stage play Being Sellers, both in London and on Broadway, Anthony Newley, Arturo Ui, Steve Strange, Pastor Manders, and the Radio Rentals man in Danny Baker’s Cradle to Grave. David is delighted to be playing Marty Feldman, adding another beloved, dead Jewish entertainer to his collection.

Rebecca Vaughan’s (Lauretta Feldman) theatre credits include The Picture of Dorian Gray (Bill Kenwright), Room 24(Nuffield Theatre), Havisham (BAC). She is also Creative Director and Producer for Dyad Productions.  Her film and television work includes Grace’s Land (Fearnort Films), The Interview (BBC), The Dead (C4). Rebecca is excited at the prospect of playing the power behind the comedy throne, not least because she and Lauretta Feldman share the same birthday.

Robert Ross (Writer)
Robert has been writing about the history and stars of British comedy for 20 years. His first book, The Carry On Companion, was quickly followed-up by The Monty Python Encyclopedia, and Benny Hill – Merry Master of Mirth. Robert’s many other books have included reference works on the Goodies, Frankie Howerd, and the BBC celebration Last of the Summer Wine – The Finest Vintage. His published biographies include Sid James – Cockney Rebel, and Steptoe & Son with Ray Galton & Alan Simpson. Robert has produced and moderated dozens of DVD commentaries, ranging from Brideshead Revisited to 30 Carry On films. His book on Marty Feldman, Biography of a Comedy Legend, was published to great acclaim by Titan Books in 2011.

Terry Jones (Director)
Terry read English at St. Edmund Hall, Oxford, and wrote and performed university shows. With Oxford cohort Michael Palin, Terry created the TV sketch shows Do Not Adjust Your Set, and The Complete & Utter History of Britain, before becoming founding members of Monty Python. The team not only conquered TV,
publishing, recording, film, and stage, but also most of the world as well; kind of like Genghis Khan with better puns, and added Spam. Terry directed Monty Python’s Life of Brian, which is often voted the greatest comedy film of all-time. He also directed Personal Services, The Wind in the Willows and Absolutely Anything, his latest film, released last summer. Terry wrote sketches for and appeared in It’s Marty with Marty Feldman.
