On the evening of Monday 20th November we gathered, we drank, we laughed and we announced Arkle Theatre’s line-up of productions for 2018!
In case you missed it; or Rob’s fruity concoction packed more of a punch than you were expecting – here are all the details!
‘Travels with My Aunt’ by Graham Greene, adapted by Giles Havergal
F1, M4, directed by David Grimes
21st to 24th March at the Roxy Assembly
Auditions on Monday 11th December
Rehearsals start Tuesday 23rd January at the Astley Ainslie
Adapted by Giles Havergal from the celebrated novel by Graham Greene, Travels with My Aunt takes you on an irreverent, often hilarious and absolutely unforgettable adventure.
Henry, Aunt Augusta and more than 25 characters are brilliantly and inventively portrayed by just five actors who switch identities, nationalities, ages and genders in this exciting theatrical escapade.
‘Laugh Out Loud (Cry Quietly)’ by Stacie Lents
Cast size variable, directed by Jana Doughty
LOL follows an eclectic group of NYC-dwellers as they look to the internet (where else?) to find love. Through a series of wacky text messages and awkward dates, each person learns what they really need and what they can – and can’t – tolerate in a mate. Playful and feel-good, LOL offers a touching and relatable look at the lengths we go to for love.
‘You Remind Me of You’ by Matthew Capodicasa
F2, M2, directed by Hannah Bradley
Adele has abandoned her school plans and social life to take care of her father, who after an accident is beginning to demonstrate the early onset stage of dementia. A chance encounter with musician Vincent might be the best thing to happen to her in months – except he suffers from Prosopagnosia, a neurological disease also known as face blindness. A poignant play about what it’s like to love without recognition, and how to keep from losing yourself when everyone around you forgets who you are.
Both Fringe plays run from Monday 13th to Saturday 18th August at The Royal Scots Club
Rehearsals will start Tuesday 19th June at the Wardie Parish Church.
Auditions sometime around mid-April 2018
As well as our new and improved shiny website (!!) we hope to be much better on social media (consider it an early New Year’s resolution from us) so keep an eye out for audition details, show previews and productions dates wherever you can find us.
Slainte! And we’ll see you in the New Year.
