Nash Theatre

Patron: Cr. Vicki Howard

Playing 21st February to 7th March :

Casablanca

Radio drama
live onstage
directed by Gary Kliger

The film classic that we all love comes to life on stage, complete with Lux Soap ads AND live sound effects.

Who doesn’t LOVE Casablanca? There’s a reason why it’s on every ‘greatest’ list when people think of films. Here’s a chance to see it on stage, refreshed and reimagined, complete with advertisements for the sponsor Lux Soap (after all, that’s the beginnings of the term ‘soap opera’) and a sound effects operator creating the sound effects live as well. The story never loses its heart, the Nazi occupation remains the ever present danger provided to the star-crossed lovers, Rick and Ilsa, and Ilsa has to make the choice of her life, between her real love and the man she respects and admires, her husband! It’s going to be an evening of romance and intrigue and FUN as well.

Round up the usual suspects….they won’t want to miss this!

Deathtrap – 8 to 30 May 2020

Deathtrap

Is the next ‘Great American Play’ worth killing for, or will the search be a death trap? Part thriller and part devilishly clever comedy, Deathtrap is sure to induce spontaneous laughter, audible gasps and even the odd scream. Unknown dramatist Clifford has sent his new thriller, Deathtrap, to award-winning playwright Sidney for comment – or has he? Without a Broadway success for some years, Sidney, along with his reluctant wife Myra, works out a strategy to plagiarise Clifford’s play. Sidney’s plan is to offer to collaborate with Clifford for co-credit – or is it? When Clifford turns up to discuss the play events take a sinister turn. It’s a roller coaster ride – enjoy it. Scream a little. It’s good for you.

The thriller to die for.

Sidney Bruhl (Writer), 45 – 55, Impressive, well-groomed
Myra Bruhl (His wife), 40 – 50, Quiet, self-effacing
