On This Week...

The Brontë Season: Production Image The Brontë Season
Live Wire Theatre Co & Butterfly Psyche

"Whatever our souls are made of, his and mine are the same": Cathy, Wuthering Heights

Three talented sisters... Three captivating heroines... Three new adaptations!
 
Whether you are a hard-core Brontë fan or if you’ve never had the pleasure, these fresh new interpretations will invigorate, inspire and warm the heart of young and old.  
 
Live Wire Theatre together with Butterfly Psyche Theatre have created three brilliant new stage adaptations of the Brontë sisters’ classic novels: Emily Brontë’s Wuthering Heights, Charlotte Brontë’s Jane Eyre and Anne Brontë’s The Tenant of Wildfell Hall.
 
Adapted by critically acclaimed writers Dougie Blaxland (Biggles, A Christmas Carol, That Moment) and Alison Farina (Fertility Objects, The Persistence of Memory, The Blue Bird) these new productions show very clearly how progressive and brave the Brontë sisters really were. Their passionate, iconic and timeless stories (written nearly 200 years ago) touch upon issues that are still very much relevant today.
 
Performed in Rep, with only one and two actors, there’s a chance to mix-and-match an old favourite along with a new acquaintance as well as the chance to see all three (with breaks, obviously!) at Omnibus Performances on the Saturdays*.
 
Reviews of Livewire’s Jane Eyre:
“… as fine a stage adaptation of a novel as you are likely to see  - a five star show in every sense.” - Bath Chronicle 5-Stars (*****) 
“…gave my soul a little hug...” - Intermission 5-Stars (*****) 
“…first-class performance in what is undoubtedly a first-class production.” - British Theatre Guide 5-Stars (*****)
 
*Special discounts available for schools groups and for the triple-feature Omnibus Performances.
 
There will be post-show discussions on Friday the 19th of September and Friday the 26th of September.

On Next Week...

Films For Peace: Production Image Films For Peace
Bath Stop The War Coalition in association with Bath Film Festivals

To celebrate The United Nations INTERNATIONAL DAY OF PEACE and to remember the tragedy of World War I which was unfolding 100 years ago, Bath Stop War Coalition is showing two films which recall the horror and stupidity of that bloody conflict.
 
4pm       Joyeux Noel . Directed by Christian Carion in 2005 this dual language film tells the story of the well documented unofficial ceasefire around Christmas in 1914. A spontaneous act of decency by ordinary soldiers on both sides was deemed dangerous and subversive by their officers and they were forced back into their trenches at gunpoint.
 
7 pm      Oh! What A Lovely War. Directed by Richard Attenborough in 1969 this film version of Joan Littlewood’s acclaimed Theatre Workshop Stage Production mixes the horror of life in the trenches with the false hopes and aspirations of music hall ballads and soldiers’ songs of the day. A rare chance to see this star studded film on the big screen!
 
"It wasn’t worth it. No war is worth the loss of a couple of lives let alone thousands" - ‘The Last Fighting Tommy’ by Harry Patch (1898 – 2019), Combe Down plumber and last surviving British combatant.
