by Pat Barker

Based on Pat Barker's acclaimed novel, this powerful and moving play is set at Craiglockhart Hospital in 1917. Siegfried Sassoon, having published his anti-war declaration is sent to the hospital for the convenience of the army. Here he meets Wilfred Owen and an intense friendship ensues. Captain Rivers, the Chief Medical Officer at the hospital, is faced with shell shocked soldiers whom he must make well again, so they can be sent back to the front in France. Presented at the time of Remembrance Day - this play is a fitting and thought provoking tribute to the men of the Western Front and reminds us of their sacrifice and the futility of war.

Monday's Charity night is in aid of "The Sherborne & Yeovil Link", part of a national organisation - Chernobyl Children's Lifeline - which brings children to England annually for a holiday to improve their health & immune systems. Only 6% of children in Belarus are healthy; children from areas affected by the after effects of the world's worst nuclear disaster are known to suffer a high incidence of birth defects, cardiac problems, cancer of the thyroid and leukaemia. They also suffer financial & social deprivation if their parents are ill & unable to work. "The Link" invites up to 12 children, aged 9-12, to stay with volunteer host families. It raises funds to pay for their flights, visas, minibus hire & fuel & a weekly Activity Programme for the 4 weeks of their stay.
 

NTLive - Hansard

by Simon Wood

Thursday 5th December 2019 starting at 7:30 pm

Hansard; noun
The official report of all parliamentary debates.

See two-time Olivier Award winners, Lindsay Duncan (Birdman, About Time) and Alex Jennings (The Lady in the Van, The Queen), in this brand-new play by Simon Wood, broadcast live from the National Theatre in London.

It’s a summer’s morning in 1988 and Tory politician Robin Hesketh has returned home to the idyllic Cotswold house he shares with his wife of 30 years, Diana. But all is not as blissful as it seems. Diana has a stinking hangover, a fox is destroying the garden, and secrets are being dug up all over the place. As the day draws on, what starts as gentle ribbing and the familiar rhythms of marital scrapping quickly turns to blood-sport.
Don’t miss this witty and devastating portrait of the governing class, directed by Simon Godwin (NT Live: Antony & Cleopatra, Twelfth Night) and part of National Theatre Live’s 10th birthday season.

Doors open 7:00 pm, show starts 7.30 pm. TICKETS ON SALE NOW
