A dying mother’s life lessons to the husband and sons she left behind. Based on the best-selling novel by St John (Singe) Greene, the film is the story of Singe and Kate, a couple from North Somerset, whose lives were turned upside down when Kate was diagnosed with an incurable breast cancer. Over her last few days, she created her list: writing her thoughts and memories down, to help the man she loved create the best life possible for their two sons, after she was gone.
In 1782, Choderlos de Laclos’ novel of sex, intrigue and betrayal in pre-revolutionary France scandalised the world. Two hundred years later, Christopher Hampton’s irresistible adaptation swept the board, winning the Olivier and Evening Standard Awards for Best Play. For LES LIAISONS DANGEREUSES’ thirty year revival, Josie Rourke has drawn together a stellar cast. Elaine Cassidy will play Madame de Tourvel, Janet McTeer will play the Marquise de Merteuil and Dominic West will play the Vicomte de Valmont.
Former lovers, the Marquise de Merteuile and Vicomte de Valmont now compete in games of seduction and revenge. Merteuil incites Valmont to corrupt the innocent Cecile de Volanges before her wedding night but Valmont has targeted the peerlessly virtuous and beautiful Madame de Tourvel. While these merciless aristocrats toy with others’ hearts and reputations, their own may prove more fragile than they supposed.
A perspective on Palestinian people dealing with Israeli occupation and how this affect human relations taking it out of the place into a complete different country, Ireland, where people and powers are equal, leaving it only to their humanity.
Sucked into loans and finding themselves trapped by the astronomical interest rates of evil loan shark Danny Nolan, the desperate residents of Owen Street in Salford come to the conclusion that the only way to free themselves is by bumping him off. One fateful night at a rollicking sexy house party that’s exactly what happens and in this whodunit, they all did it.
They then draw lots to decide whose garden Nolan’s body will be buried in and everything starts to unravel with nervous hilarity as guilt and paranoia creep in. Each neighbour begins fearing that the others will betray them and that it’s just a matter of time before the truth comes out.
Things come to a head when a tough uncompromising woman starts asking awkward questions about Nolan, leaving the residents cracking under the pressure as they think she’s a copper. But Steph is Nolan’s wife, and she’s twice as evil as Nolan ever was.
There’s an uncanny presence on Joe and Kitty’s farm. Precious feed is mysteriously disappearing from the hayshed and prized livestock is being slaughtered at night whilst sinister shadows lurk in the darkness.
With fodder running out and no money left, Joe and Kitty, like their desperate neighbours, will stop at nothing to protect themselves and their cherished land. But at what cost?
Fiona Doyle presents a deeply provocative thriller set in a blighted landscape, where nature is fiercely taking its course and it’s becoming a question of survival of the fittest. Her theatre credits include winner of the 2014 Paptango New Writing Prize, Coolatully (Finborough Theatre) and Rootbound (Arcola).
Anna Ledwich returns to Hampstead Downstairs following Olivier nominated Four Minutes Twelve Seconds last year and The Empty Quarter in 2013. Other theatre credits include Blue Remembered Hills (Chichester Festival Theatre), How Does A Snake Shed Its Skin (NT Studio/BAC/Edinburgh Festival) and Lulu (Gate Theatre/ Headlong).
This production is made possible through a gift by Jocelyn Abbey from the Joan Abbey estate.
Keeping these streets clean is a Herculean task, enough to demoralize even the keenest rookie – but there’s a reason why this hotchpotch of committed cops are on this force, on this side of town. Drug labs, arsonists, neo-Nazis and notorious murderers are all in a day’s work for this close-knit team, led by the dizzyingly capable but unquestionably unhinged DI Vivienne Deering (Scanlan). But when a particularly twisted serial killer emerges it leaves even the most hardened of these seasoned coppers reeling.
Flanked by her right-hand women – the compassionate but impulsive DC Dinah Kowalska (Cassidy) and the recently (surprisingly) promoted DS Joy Freers (Roach) – Deering and her team must crack this case by whatever unconventional means possible. Because amidst all the assorted low life; the pimps, the petty thieves, and downright nasty bastards they’ve dealt with, this will be their most disturbing case yet, one that will touch their lives in ways they could never expect.
It was a brilliant start to my career. After that I kept being sent similar roles, all of which I turned down. If I’d wanted to keep playing the same part, I’d have gone into a soap.
