A View from the edge

A View from the Edge
'Owdyado Theatre Company

The Show Private eye and troubled sleeper Charlie Daniels is hired by the seductive Elise Hillerman to investigate the disappearance of her husband – a prominent gallery owner. Meanwhile, writers Charlotte and Dan struggle to write the script of their new noir-inspired theatre show about an art forgery ring. As scenes spin, fragment and entangle with each other, one question arises: whose reality is real? A View from the Edge is a slick and surprising show where the search for the truth provokes a mind-bending journey through the world of dreams, imagination and real life. With its sharp wit, quick pace and a heavy dose of noir style; from the classic to the neo, A View from the Edge also takes influence from cult filmmakers Charlie Kaufman and David Lynch. A View from the Edge is a highly original show that will not only delight and intrigue but will keep you guessing until the end. Pay attention now. Its about to get weird...

The Bear Mid Wales Opera Canolbarth Cymru


The Bear
Mid Wales Opera Canolbarth Cymru
Mid Wales Opera presents THE BEAR A comedy in one act Play by Anton Chekov Music by William Walton Libretto by Paul Dehn MWO Small-Stages presents a micro-chamber version of this twentieth century one-act comedy classic – William Walton’s The Bear. Composed in 1967 and based on Anton Chekov’s play of the same name, it tells the tale of the widow, Mme Popova, unendingly mourning the death of her husband until the arrival of the rough-hewn yet charismatic land agent, Smirnov (the “bear” of the title) demanding payment of debts. Passions run high and their sparring culminates in a duel during which the two appear to have fallen unexpectedly in love. Full of entertainment, comedy, parody and great tunes, this pilot ‘Small-Stages’ tour by MWO delivers a whole new concept in opera. Directed and designed by MWO’s Artistic Director Richard Studer, The Bear is performed by three singers and five musicians with no conductor, in a new performing edition by MWO’s Music Director Jonathan Lyness. The opera lasts one hour and is sung in English. The performance concludes with a potpourri of popular operatic excerpts performed by both musicians and singers, tailor-made for each venue, with refreshments and the opportunity for informal discussion and chat with the performers. A brilliant introduction for audiences new to opera and a fabulous opportunity for all music lovers to hear Walton’s classic comedy in its fiftieth anniversary year, this intimate production is designed to have the widest possible appeal and to fulfil MWO’s mission for keeping opera live and local across rural Wales. “They make it work, they deliver with punchy, impactful theatre, and they cast with strength” Opera Now “And above all, it was just what opera should be doing: serving the community” Independent on Sunday
