Accidental Death of an Anarchist

This play premiered in 1970 and has been performed across the world in more than forty countries. It is based on the aftermath of a bombing in 1969 and the death of a suspect while being interrogated by police.  The play uses comedy as a subversive tactic to highlight the flaws in the official account of the incident.

The action takes place on the upper floor of a police station where previously an anarchist has died after falling from an upper window.  In an attempt to avoid a scandal, an investigation is planned to establish whether he was pushed, jumped or fell by accident.  Into the police station is brought a fraudster known as The Maniac.  When left alone in the inspector’s office he intercepts a telephone call, finds out about the investigation, and decides to have some fun. He adopts several disguises and personas and leads the officers into more and more ridiculous reconstructions of how the incident occurred, exposing cover-ups and corruption.

Although the subject matter would not be initially thought of as a suitable for comedy, the antics of The Maniac and his quick wit and daring in this political farce result in hilarious scenes as he creates mayhem to undermine the investigation.

Treasure Island

Treasure Island, adapted for stage by Millie Hardy-Sims, is based on the 1883 timeless adventure novel of the same name, written by Robert Louis Stevenson.
A story which paved the way for the image of pirates as we know them. Treasure Island is a story of hardship, loyalty, coming-of-age and adventure which has delighted audiences for over 130 years.
It is the late 18th century. Piracy is rife amongst the seas and many coastal towns live in fear.
Young Jim Hawkins lives with his Mother in their rundown inn along the Bristol Coast. Theyve seen better days, and just as things are looking desperate for the Admiral Benbow, a stranger appears seeking shelter. He is brash, tattooed, scarred and permanently drunk. His appearance in the inn quickly brings down bad fortune upon the Hawkins family.
Their quiet inn is soon host to many bloodthirsty and brutal pirates who are in search of just one thing – a map to the treasure of the long dead notorious Captain Flint.
Little do they know Jim has already found the map and fled the inn, a warning ringing in his ears... Beware the one legged man.”
Jim soon finds himself on a seafaring adventure in search of the treasure, accompanied by family friend Doctor Livesey, fierce Captain Alexander Smollett, silver-tongued Squire Trelawney and a salty, one-legged sea-cook by the name of Long John Silver. Along the journey they must battle storms, find what to do with drunken sailors and try to keep their heads above water on their way to the island.
All that, and a rumour that there be pirates.
A true-to-book adaptation for the stage suitable for all the family.

Blithe Spirit

When author Charles Condomine and his wife, Ruth, invite 2 friends for dinner they decide to spice up the evening by also inviting the local eccentric medium Madame Arcati.  Neither couple believe she is genuine and expect a very amusing evening but when Madame Arcati accidentally manages to summon up Elvira, Charles’ dead first wife, things change.  Only Charles can see or hear Elvira and she is bent on mischief and has a plan to be able to be with Charles for ever. In the following days Charles has to negotiate between his two wives, one of which cannot see or hear the other.  This leads to all sorts of misunderstandings.  In the end Ruth is so fed up with the whole situation that she sends again for Madame Arcati in the hope she will return Elvira from whence she came.  Was this a wise move or will it push Elvira in attempting to secure Charles for ever? Will she succeed or will the plan go horribly wrong?
Blithe Spirit opened in the West End in 1941 and ran for 1997 performances.  Coward’s witty dialogue, sparkling wit and farcical situations mean that it remains a popular play with audiences today so why not join us for a little séance.  After all what could go wrong?
