WHAT’S ON SEPTEMBER 2019 – Bare at Websters Theatre

“once upon a time I first held your hand, and love was not a crime”

Nominated for the 2005 GLAAD Media Award for Outstanding New York Theatre, with music by Damon Intrabartolo and lyrics by Jon Hartmere, bare is a contemporary, sung through “pop opera” with a raucous score and themes that are as relevant today as they were when first performed almost two decades ago.

A group of high school seniors at a Catholic boarding school face issues of sexuality and personal identity. As they struggle to come to terms with who they are, and who the world thinks they should be, they seeks answers from their church, their friends, and ultimately from within themselves.

Following the previous successes of Spring Awakening, Green Day’s American Idiot, and Elton John & Tim Rice’s AIDA, Glasgow Live Productions are delighted to bring bare to the West End of Glasgow.

Thu 19 Sept: 19:30

WHAT’S ON SEPTEMBER/OCTOBER 2019 – Rapture Theatre presents Clybourne Park

“How many white men does it take to change a light bulb?” 

Rapture Theatre Presents: CLYBOURNE PARK by Bruce Norris 

Rapture Theatre, after its critically acclaimed productions of The Red Lion and A Streetcar Named Desire, makes a welcome return.

It’s 1959 and President Eisenhower is in the White House. Bev and Russ are moving after the tragic death of their son, and they have inadvertently sold their house to the neighbourhood’s first black family.

Fifty years later, in 2009, with the first Black President just having taken office, a young white couple buy the same house in what is now a predominantly black neighbourhood.

In both instances, racial tensions escalate, the stakes are raised and the play asks the question: have our attitudes to race really changed?

Winner of the Pulitzer Prize,Tony and Olivier Award for Best Play and hailed as “shockingly entertaining” and “appallingly funny”, Clybourne Park is a razor-sharp satire about the politics of race.

The cast features Robin Kingsland (Rapture’s The Browning Version and Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?), popular Scottish performer Jackie Morrison, leading Royal Shakespeare Company actress Frances McNamee, Adelaide Obeng (Not Bound Within  for The Albany ), Benjamin Stratton (The 39 Steps), Jack Lord (War Horse for National Theatre), Steven Scott Fitzgerald (The Browning Version) and Vinta Morgan (The Merchant of Venice for Almedia Theatre).
