Reading: another Chekhov short

Following on from our enjoyable production of The Bear in FEATS last year, we are holding a reading of another short play by Chekhov. In The Anniversary (also known in English as The Jubilee), the plans to celebrate the anniversary of a bank meet with unexpected obstacles. Cast: two men, two women and some supporting roles. All are welcome, either to join in or just listen. See the calendar on the right for time and place.

Sorry, wrong number

For a reason beyond our control, the phone number printed in the Cube noir programme for Oh, What a Lovely War! bookings – and reproduced in the “Strasbourg … Sooo British” programme and maybe elsewhere – is wrong.

Everyone, therefore, has been re-registered with an automatically generated password that bears no resemblance to the one they had chosen (nor, indeed, to any known language). It would have been possible to send out these passwords on an Continue reading →

Oh, What a Lovely War!

Preparations are well under way for Oh, What a Lovely War!, our spring production scheduled for 12 to 15 April. With an on-stage cast approaching fifty people, the rehearsal space is a bit cramped, but we are soldiering on – an appropriate term in the context. There’s more about the play here; and further details will be added very shortly. This production is now over. You can see photos here.
