POLSKA adaptacja sztuki "Joy Division"

Nazistowska historia sex niewolników

W latach 70 i we wczesnych latach 80, znany zespół z Manchesteru wziął swoją nazwę od wydarzeń, które z "radością" nie mają nic wspólnego. Pochodzi ona bowiem od niemieckich nazistowskich obozów pracy, w których tysiące młodych polskich kobiet było używanych jako niewolnice seksualne dla niemieckich oficerów, zanim wyruszyli oni walczyć na froncie radzieckim. Te młode kobiety, zwane "Dziwkami Pola", uprawiały codzienną "powinność radości", gdzie trzy złe raporty na temat ich usług oznaczały brutalny poziom kary.

Czy w tak okrutnych okolicznościach ludzie doznają komfortu wśród tych, którzy skazani są na takie samo przeznaczenie? A może podporządkowanie jednostki daje im większą władzę i dłuższe życie? Kim były  "Polskie Lalki?"

Ta produkcja była wystawiana w wielu teatrach w UK, w języku angielskim i polskim, włączając

Summer RADA Festival na West End.

SHOPPED by Ian Holloway

This fast-paced new comedy by long-time New Cross resident Ian Holloway is set in Liddi’s, a supermarket chain so low-rent it makes Aldi looks like Fortnum & Mason.

These are troubled times, with financial scandal looming for the Liddi’s group. Will the unscrupulous but charismatic CEO escape with his reputation (and knighthood) intact? What dark secret is the paraplegic manageress hiding? Will the artist-in-residence get what she so thoroughly deserves? And will Candy, the hapless shelf-stacker, win out against all the odds?

Why not come along and find out? Shake off the January blues with 2 hours of fun-filled theatre, as the cast plays everything from self-checkout machines to a pharmacist more spacey than Sir Kevin.

PYGMALION by George Bernard Shaw

A play by George Bernard Shaw, named after a Greek mythological character. It was first presented on stage to the public in 1913.

Professor of phonetics Henry Higgins makes a bet that he can train a bedraggled Cockney flower girl, Eliza Doolittle, to pass for a duchess at an ambassador's garden party by teaching her to assume a veneer of gentility, the most important element of which, he believes, is impeccable speech. The play is a sharp lampoon of the rigid British class system of the day and a commentary on women's independence.

In ancient Greek mythology, Pygmalion fell in love with one of his sculptures, which then came to life. The general idea of that myth was a popular subject for Victorian era English playwrights, including one of Shaw's influences, W. S. Gilbert, who wrote a successful play based on the story called Pygmalion and Galatea first presented in 1871. Shaw would also have been familiar with the burlesque version, Galatea, or Pygmalion Reversed. Shaw's play has been adapted numerous times, most notably as the musical My Fair Lady and the film of that name.

Adapted and directed by Olga Tromalov

During a train ride, Pozdnyshev overhears a conversation concerning marriage, divorce and love. When a woman argues that marriage should not be arranged but based on true love, he asks "what is love?" and points out that, if understood as an exclusive preference for one person, it often passes quickly. Convention dictates that two married people stay together, and initial love can quickly turn into hatred. 

After this work by Leo Tolstoy had been forbidden in Russia by the censors, a mimeographed version was widely circulated.

Jeffrey Bernard is Unwell is a play about real-life journalist . Bernard was still alive at the time the play was first performed in the West End in 1989. Bernard wrote the "Low Life" column in The Spectator. The play's title refers to the magazine's habit of printing a one-line apology on a blank page when he was too drunk or hung-over to produce the required copy and a substitute article could not be found before the deadline for publication. Its premise is that Bernard has found himself locked in overnight at his favourite public house, the coach and Horses in Soho Jeffrey Bernard Is Unwell was a highly successful vehicle for its original star Peter O'Toole. The show opened in Brighton in September 1989, moved to Bath and made its triumphant London debut at the Apollo Theatre in Shaftesbury Avenue in October. O'Toole also appeared in a later revival at the Old Vic. The Old Vic run was totally sold out, and on 23 August 1999 the London Evening Standard published a 'Bluffer's Guide' to enable readers to pretend they had seen it: "thereby allowing dinner party conversations and watercooler debates to run their course unhindered by ignorance." O'Toole was followed in the part by Tom Conti who starred in a revival of the play until September 2006 at the Garrick Theatre in London. The part has also been played by James Bolam, Dennis Waterman,  and Robert Powell,  A cast of six bring this great modern  comedy classic to life.
