Endgame (15)


Passing their days in a bare room, the nearly blind, chair-bound tyrant Hamm and his dutiful but resentful and hard of hearing servant Clov exist in a constant see-saw of pathos and hatred, love and hope. While the battling conversation between master and servant intensifies, Hamm’s parents, Nell and Nagg toy with nostalgia. Symbolic of the enthusiasms of youth and how the young can disregard the needs of the old, even as the old reminisce about their youthful enthusiasms.

In this mix of dark comedic wordplay and macabre insight, Beckett’s mastery is evident –absurdity in the face of meaninglessness, sorrow in the face of futility, humour in the face of mortality. Following a successful run at The Bike Shed Theatre, Exeter in 2013, this re-mounting of Beckett’s classic 1957 play signals the fourth Westcountry tour by the Uncommon Players.

Last year’s tour of The Browning Version was warmly received by audiences across Devon and Somerset. This year Endgame, supported by Arts Council England will be the most ambitious tour to date for the Devon company. With a local cast of professional and amateur actors, the UnCommon Players tour great plays to great little places.

Ventoux is a restaging of the dramatic battle between Lance Armstrong and Marco Pantani in the Tour de France 2000 on Mont Ventoux.

Once regarded as the greatest race in the history of cycling, we now know that both Armstrong and Pantani doped during their careers.

At the time both were champions in their own right - Pantani winning the Tour de France in 1998, and Armstrong winning in 1999.

In 2000 they went head to head on Mont Ventoux. They crossed the line together but their careers spiralled in wildly opposite directions.

Armstrong won seven consecutive Tour de France titles; Pantani died of a cocaine overdose alone in a hotel room.

Armstrong denied, lied and cheated where Pantani was caught.

Ventoux restages this race, knowing everything that we now know in 2015.

With a pair of road bikes, stunning footage of Mont Ventoux and actual race commentary, 2Magpies bring the excitement of the Tour de France to the theatre.

ROH Encore: Madama Butterfly (12A)

ROH Encore: Madama Butterfly

Antonio Pappano conducts an impressive cast led by ermonela jaho in puccini’s deeply poignant opera. Puccini's MADAMA BUTTERFLY is one of the most popular of all operas, with ravishing music and a heartbreaking story of a loving geisha deserted by a callous American husband.

Much loved soprano Ermonela Jaho sings the title role for the first time at Covent Garden, in Moshe Leiser and Patrice Caurier's stunningly beautiful production. The exotic imagery of the Nagasaki setting is drawn from 19th-century Western artists' romanticized views of Japan. Puccini's music brings alive the birdsong of the morning, the ritual of a wedding and the seduction by naval officer B.F. Pinkerton (sung by exciting young tenor Marcelo Puente) of his young, innocent bride. Well known moments include the impassioned aria 'Un bel dì' (One fine day) as the abandoned Cio-Cio-San clings vainly to her dreams.

Royal Opera Music Director Antonio Pappano, acclaimed for his interpretations of Italian opera, conducts this intense and gripping journey from light and excitement to darkness and self-sacrifice.

Sam Lewis

Sam Lewis

With rich soulful vocals, well-crafted songs, roots country and blue-eyed soul Sam Lewis is connecting the dots. Whether crossing genres or state lines, he has pieced together a story people need to hear.

Music was one of the few constants in Sam’s life. His family never stayed anywhere for long, which meant that friendships were forged between himself and the music he absorbed, from Roy Orbison to Van Morrison to Willie Nelson. The influence of Ray Charles can be felt from the first note to the last beat, making Sam’s debut a complimentary companion to Charles’ own, two-volume Modern Sounds in Country and Western Music. Leaving home as soon as the opportunity arrived, Sam landed in Knoxville, and later Nashville.

Sam has spent hours, in fact years, collecting and arranging the relationships and experiences he has forged. To the average person, they seem like an amalgamation of time and happenstance, but to him, they are the moral of the story. “I never once felt, in this whole process that someone just kind of pointed. No one took me by the hand, but almost every single one of these connections were very personal. I was introduced to these people that helped make this record. These are gonna be people that I’m going to know the rest of my life.” Lewis has drawn us a clear picture of where he’s going, and thankfully, he has invited us along for the ride.

His album ‘Waiting on you’ received a top review from Mojo and featured in the Telegraph’s list of top country albums from 2015

Simon Weston - My Life, My Story

Simon Weston: My Life, My Story is a truly inspirational show about one man's journey from the front line of war, being on the sdge of death to today being a happy and contented father, Grandfather and National Treasure.

It was the conflict of a generation and one that many people will never forget. On the 2nd of April 1982 Argentina invaded the Falkland Islands.

The Islands, which had been in the control of Great Britain for nearly 150 years, became a battle ground. What was to follow saw 655 Argentinian Soldiers and 255 British Servicemen slain.

Amongst those sent to the conflict was Simon Weston CBE.

In one of the most horrific moments of the conflict the RFA Sir Galahad was bombed by two Argentinian planes. Aboard at the time was Simon. This was an event that was to change his life forever.

Eventually and against all odds, Simon escaped the burning and buckled ship, but only after suffering 46% burns to his body. Today he has become one of the most recognised faces of the conflict and, after his 2015 success, he is now returning to the stage to tell his story in his words.

Guiding him, through that fateful day to current times is David Fitzgerald, former news anchor and BBC Broadcaster and friend.

The show features the highs and lows and questions only David can ask, with answers only Simon can give. Combined with rare footage and an insight in to his life today, Simon shares the shocking truth of the conflict, that day and the years that followed.

Participants will learn basic animation techniques. The practical course involves model making, light box drawing techniques and hands on stop motion filming mixed with blue screen. Part of the course will be explaining the technical process of editing - however as the editing is very time consuming, the final piecing together of the film will be done outside of the workshop by Ben Stevens and the final cut will be accessible online.

Please book under the parent or carer name and ensure you include an email if possible and a telephone number. Box Office will contact you shortly before the course to confirm the name of the child or young person attending and to ask you to complete a consent form for the workshops.
