The Revlon Girl

The Revlon Girl by Neil Anthony Docking
March 19th, 20th and 21st 2020
7.30pm

All tickets £7.50 

Set eight months following Aberfan Disaster of 1966 (in which 144 people were killed; 116 of them children) The Revlon Girl tells the real life story of a group of bereaved mothers who met every week above a local hotel to talk, cry and even laugh without feeling guilty.

At one of their meetings, the women looked at each other and admitted how much they felt they’d let themselves go. So afraid that people would think them frivolous, they secretly arranged for a representative from Revlon to come and give them a talk on beauty tips.

Please note that strong language is used throughout this production and it would be advised for over 16's only.

The Wizard of Oz is a colourful fantasy musical. It provides family entertainment containing many familiar songs like “Somewhere over the Rainbow” and “Follow the Yellow Brick Road”. Dorothy finds herself over the rainbow in Munchkin land following a cyclone. Her house has squashed the Witch of the East, leaving her loved and admired by the Munchkins but hated by the Wicked Witch of the West, the sister of the Witch of the East. Whilst following the yellow brick road she makes acquaintance with a brainless scarecrow, a heartless tin man and a cowardly lion.  The four journey on together to meet the Wizard but he isn’t everything that they expect! A timeless classic with a moral twist.

Dorothy lives on a farm in Kansas until a cyclone arrives, and picks her, her house, and her dog up and deposits them in the land of Oz. Things in Oz are strange and beautiful, but Dorothy just wants to get back home. She begins to travel to the Emerald City where a great wizard lives and on her way she meets a Scarecrow who needs a brain, a Tin Man who wants a heart, and a Cowardly Lion who desperately needs courage. They all hope the Wizard of Oz will help them. Dorothy is helped by the Good Witch of the North, but she's also sought by the Wicked Witch of the West, who seeks revenge for the death of her sister; the Wicked Witch of the East, for which she blames Dorothy. After many twists and turns, Dorothy returns to Kansas knowing now that “there’s no place like home”.

PALIMPSEST

PALIMPSEST
By Graham J Evans
This play is produced as part of the Blackwood Bicentennial Celebrations 
17th & 18th July 2020
at 7.30pm
All Tickets £7.50

Think of three teenagers alone in a theatre attic at night.  Think of the sudden and frightening appearance of a complete stranger.  What should they do?   Get out, of course.  And they would – if only the door were not locked and if only they were not held captive by the past, by their own curiosity and  by a stranger named Palimpsest who reminds them that 'time travels in one direction'. 

“History is a nightmare from which I am trying to awake.”                  James Joyce – Ulysses.

 

The Rise and Fall of Little Voice

The Rise and Fall of Little Voice
A Play by Jim Cartwright

17th, 18th, & 19th September 2020 at 730pm

All tickets £7.50
Early Bird Offer - 2 tickets for £12 Until 30th June 2020

A timid and brilliant young woman, Little Voice has a hidden talent - she can sing like the greatest divas of the 20th Century.

Living a lonely life in a northern town, all she wants is to be safe in her room with her records. No chance with mother Mari on the rampage – she’s after booze, a man, a greasy breakfast, and a working phoneline. 

When local impresario Ray forces Little Voice into the spotlight, her transformation astounds everyone. Then the battle between mother and daughter truly erupts. 

Funny, brutal, beautiful and sad, Jim Cartwright’s timeless and ultimately uplifting tale is a comic tragedy about finding your voice in a noisy world.
