IMPRISONED
On from 16 Aug 2016 to 04 Sep 2016
Barons Court Theatre
by Marie Hale

Tickets: £7 - £10 - Previews (16-17 August): £5

Marie Hale brings us a double bill of new plays, each concerned with fascinating facets of modern life.

REVIEWS:
Almost 4 decades after the first woman took office as Prime Minister, and mere weeks after the second took the reigns of power, there's still not nearly enough in the way of well-written roles for women, or enough opportunities for women in the theatre in general. Commendably, this production offers offers two fascinating, well-written female roles, with the majority of the creative roles effected by women. Meg Lake and Brig Bennett both give fine performances, providing us with two very different, contrasting characters and two very different perspectives on women's lives.

There are innovative touches from directors Kasia Wojcicka and Hugh Allison who both make full use of the available space in this intimate venue, spreading the action into almost every nook and cranny, and with Ms Bennett addressing the audience directly – at times, staring right into their eyes from a couple of feet away.

There's a neatly-devised cabaret scene with an invisible, jeering audience and a clever slow-mo segment when Helen attacks a fellow prisoner, Belfast Mary.

Quality pervades this production in every department providing an engaging and stimulating evening of theatre.

(PETER BROWN: ACTDROP REVIEWS)

REVIEW:

MPRISONED is a double bill of monologues, giving two different interpretations of the title word. In SOMETHING FOR THE MEN, set in the 1980s at a time when women were more likely to be the secretary than the boss, Vicky Barwell (played by Meg Lake) is in a dead end job. In YOUR SACRAMENT DIVINE, Helen McPherson (played by Brig Bennett) is a convicted criminal.

Maire Hale scripts are well chosen to offer contrasting stories, however, YOUR SACRAMENT DIVINE stood out as a play of exceptional quality and depth. Actress Brig Bennett is outstanding as an inmate losing hope of gaining remission to her prison sentence. She really nails the audience to their seats, as she delivers her lines with vehemence. It’s a gritty, believable and fascinating performance. The director, Hugh Allison makes excellent choices delivering the monologues up close and personal and using the whole space.

The play has suspense, as we have to wait to the end to find out why the protagonist committed the crime, at the same time the traumas are ramping up the pressure into a powder keg; it does not let up until its final satisfactory conclusion. A play with pace and pauses full of tension.

In SOMETHING FOR THE MEN, the 1980s are evoked very well, in the simple office set by Andrea Carr, the costume design and the attitudes of the day. In the monologue we hear about Vicky Barwell’s failed love affairs as she discusses them with a work colleague. She eventually emerges as a stronger woman. Whilst interesting, this linear script lacks sufficient hooks to really grab the attention. It might have worked better as a duologue as several times the protagonist repeats what the other character has said for our benefit which feels a little clumsy.

Overall, a slow start to the evening but it is worth the wait as the evening of contrasting plays, builds to a crescendo.

"THE HOUSE OF BERNARDA ALBA"
On from 04 Oct 2016 to 23 Oct 2016
Barons Court Theatre
by Federico Garcia Lorca

Tickets: £12 - £14

Year after year, Something Wicked Theatre have been bringing us some of the finest productions of classical works ever staged at this theatre. Barons Court Theatre audiences will recall Federico Garcia Lorca's 'Blood Wedding' and 'Yerma' and the acclaim these productions received from critics. Their production of Lorca's "The House Of Bernarda Alba" here a couple of years ago was a sell out and many people were unable to purchase tickets for it. In response to the huge demand for a new production of this Spanish masterpiece, Something Wicked bring it back to us again. Don't miss it this time!

PLEASE NOTE THIS PRODUCTION IS IN SPANISH.

"IOLANTHE"
On from 06 Dec 2016 to 18 Dec 2016
Barons Court Theatre
by GILBERT AND SULLIVAN

Tickets: £8 - £16 / (£12 concessions)

If you have never seen a Gilbert and Sullivan light operetta, your life is really incomplete. The shows are packed with hummable tunes and melodies, eccentric characters and extremely funny scenes. Last year, Barons Court was successful in persuading Forbear Theatre to stage 'Ruddigore' here and, as this is one of the most talented companies in the business, audiences were privileged to watch an accclaimed production of this classic ghost story. Have a look at some of the reviews for 'Ruddigore' below to get an idea of the standard of entertainment.

Well, the good news is that Forbear are back! This time with a hilarious production of 'Iolanthe' which will be just as popular as 'Ruddigore' (with even more catchy songs). Gilbert and Sullivan fans (and there are millions of them all over the world) are already booking their tickets. If you want to see this highlight of our theatrical season, do book early before they're all gone!

By the way, this would make the perfect Christmas show for all the family...

SAMPLES OF JUST A FEW REVIEWS FROM THE PRESS AND AUDIENCES FOR FORBEAR THEATRE'S PREVIOUS PRODUCTION OF 'RUDDIGORE' AT BARONS COURT THEATRE:

"They like it! If you’re a fan of Gilbert & Sullivan, you'll love this. If you're not a fan or have never seen any of their work then...go. I defy you to leave without a smile on your face!..." HAMMERSMITH TODAY

"...the best production of Ruddigore...ever seen!..." AUDIENCE COMMENT

"A 'conversion experience' oF unmatched hilarity..." AUDIENCE COMMENT

"MORE EAVESDROPPING"
On from 31 Jan 2017 to 11 Feb 2017
Barons Court Theatre
by John Patterson

Tickets: £12 - £16

In July this year, Angel Theatre Company staged one of the most 'different' entertainments ever presented at Barons Court Theatre. To be honest, we weren't sure how it would go, as it used the concept of scenes derived from covert recording of real people engaged in genuine conversations. We need not have worried: it was a smash hit, selling out for night after night throughout the run. As for the reviews: more than we have ever seen for any similar production and all glowing with the highest praise! The show came to an end but the plaintive phone calls started, all with the same theme "I missed it. When are you bringing it back?" The wait is over – it's back again in January. There could be no more enjoyable start to the New Year.
