Blithe Spirit
by Noël Coward

 

Celebrated (and often cantankerous!) novelist Charles Condomine has invited a local medium and eccentric, Madame Arcati, to hold a séance at his house,

as research for his latest book. Rather surprisingly, the hapless Arcati calls up the ghost of Charles’ first wife – the alluring Elvira. Safe in the knowledge that only Charles can see her, Elvira embarks on a series of troublesome events that

quickly move from somewhat harmless to very dangerous…

 

Blithe Spirit is Coward’s most successful, inventive, highly spirited comedy. It was the longest running hit of his career, the film version of which memorably

starred Rex Harrison and Margaret Rutherford.

 

If you relished our 2013 production of Present Laughter, then you’ll love this mischievous comedy that’s pure Coward at his nonchalant and sardonic best.

Blonde Bombshells of 1943
By Alan Plater

 

Band leader Betty is in trouble. Her glamorous, all female 8-piece band has finally landed a big-time BBC performance on the wireless, but various illicit liaisons with the yanks have depleted their ranks.

 

In double-quick time, remaining bandmates recruit new talent! Enter a draft-dodging drummer who is unafraid to don a frock, a nun who plays a mean ukulele, an innocent schoolgirl clarinetist and a rather snooty soldier saxophonist. Will Betty and her assorted crew give the performance of their lives?

 

Based on the BAFTA-winning, TV film starring Judi Dench, this show is guaranteed to raise your spirits with stunning, live vocal and musical performances of hits by Glenn Miller, The Andrews Sisters, George Formby, Fats Waller and more, with all the glitz and sparkle of a by-gone but not forgotten era. With songs Don’t Sit Under The Apple Tree, Loch Lomond, T’ain’t What You Do, Goodbye-ee, Wish Me Luck As You Wave Me Goodbye

The Crucible
by Arthur Miller

 

For the puritanical folk of Salem, Massachusetts, the news that their young women have been conjuring spirits in the forest is devastating. It means the devil is amongst them. And the devil must be hunted down and driven out, whatever the cost. Fear and suspicion spirals quickly out of control, unleashing a murderous powder keg of accusations, hysteria, lust and revenge.

 

Arthur Miller’s 1953 play is one of the most powerful pieces of 20th century theatre. Written as an allegory for McCarthyism, when the US government persecuted its citizens for being communists, this parable of politics, religious fervour and fear is a masterpiece which still resonates in the 21st Century.

Heritage

by Nicola McCartney

 

Canada 1914. Sarah McCrea stands on the threshold of womanhood, facing a bright future in a new country. Leaving Ulster behind, Sarah and her family carve out their existence in an emerging community.

 

Drawn to one another through tales of a near-forgotten, mythical Ireland, Sarah and her neighbour Michael Donoghue become firm friends. But when Sarah and Michael’s relationship deepens by Nicola McCartney and his determination to define his identify catches fire, centuries of conflict threaten to blight their love. And for Sarah, the realisation dawns that old battles are being fought on new territory.

 

First staged in 1998, Heritage is a poignant and poetic exploration of love, identity, tribalism and the need to belong. As stark and poignant as the sweeping landscape it conjures, all at once it is epic, lyrical and timeless.

North And South

by Elizabeth Gaskell, adapted by Janys Chambers

 

Strong-willed vicar’s daughter Margaret Hale has grown up in the rarefied atmosphere of rural southern England, so when her family relocates to the roughness and vitality of a northern factory town, she is thrown into a new life of strikes and strife.

 

Hot-blooded industrialist John Thornton rules his cotton mill with an iron hand. Sparks fly when Margaret challenges both master and mill-hand, only to discover that not all of her southern beliefs hold true.

 

A tale for today, this timely adaptation of Elizabeth Gaskell’s classic 19th-century novel by BAFTA-nominated writer Janys Chambers explores the complex relationship between North and South, and between women and men of different classes.

 

Can reason overcome pride and prejudice? Can compassion triumph over a blind adherence to market forces? Can love bloom amongst the snowy fibres of a money-driven cotton mill?

Faith Healer

by Brian Friel

 

Travelling to the small towns and remote village halls scattered throughout Scotland and Wales, the Fantastic Francis Hardy, together with his indefatigably loyal wife, Grace, and their born-into-show-business manager, Teddy, promises healing to the hopeless and restoration for the sick and suffering.

 

Each of their stories in turn sheds shifting shards of light on events. Only one thing is certain however; Faith Healer Francis is at the mercy of his ‘unreliable’ gift. So where does truth lie? Showman? Con-man? Villain? Victim?

 

A haunting exploration of love, loss, belief and sacrifice, Faith Healer is often funny, passionate and tender. It will take you to the heart of what it means to love, struggle and believe.

 

Brian Friel is one of Ireland’s greatest playwrights. Author of Translations and Dancing At Lughnasa, Faith Healer is considered his masterpiece. Starring George Costigan who is best known for portraying Bob in the 1987 film Rita, Sue and Bob Too as well as his more recent role in Happy Valley.

NEWS: Bianca Del Rio adds Edinburgh gig to next year’s IT’S JESTER JOKE tour

Following two consecutive sell-out UK tours, including three sold out nights at London’s Eventim Apollo, comedy queen and RuPaul’s Drag Race champion Bianca Del Rio has announced that she will be returning to the UK for an unprecedented arena tour from Sunday 1 – Tuesday 24 September 2019.

The brand new It’s Jester Joke Tour will travel the length and breadth of the country, bringing her irreverent, side-splitting comedy to 13 cities – including dates at the SEC Armadillo on Friday 6 and Edinburgh Playhouse on Saturday 7 September 2019 along with appearances at the SSE Wembley Arena, B1 Birmingham Arena, Motorpoint Cardiff Arena and more in what will be the biggest ever solo drag show in the UK.

The self-proclaimed ‘Clown in a Gown’ will tell tales of her world travels and the outrageous circus that is her life on the most ambitious solo drag show tour in history on her brand-new comedy show ‘It’s Jester Joke’.

Irreverent and fierce, Bianca is guaranteed to keep audiences in stitches with her comical ‘tell-it-like-it-is’ views, from politics and travel to family and social media that has seen her become one the biggest drag superstars in the world today.

Don’t miss the chance to see The Queen of Mean in her uncompromisingly funny new show in September 2019.

Bianca Del Rio, the alter ego of seasoned comic Roy Haylock, has well and truly taken the world by storm. After quickly becoming the front-runner on the sixth season of RuPaul’s Drag Race, Bianca was crowned the winner in May 2014.

The incredibly popular champion has amassed a huge following worldwide, with her Instagram soaring to over one million followers and previous shows ‘The Rolodex of Hate’, ‘Not Today Satan’ and ‘Blame It On Bianca Del Rio’ selling out globally.

WHAT’S ON SEPTEMBER: Scottish Ensemble explore the effect that music has on body, mind and soul in Pause

What happens when we stop and listen? Scottish Ensemble brings thought-provoking evening of live music, debate and discussion to venues across Scotland

Pause blends live musical performance with provocations, conversation and debate. As well as expert speakers and SE musicians sharing their perspectives on what music does to us and why, carefully-devised sets of music will create an absorbing listening experience for mind and body – from the riveting, repetitive patterns of Philip Glass, to the mystical intensity of Biber, to the Pulitzer-Prize-winning soundscapes of Caroline Shaw.

Guest speakers will include neuroscientist Dr. Guido Orgs (in all cities), and SE is also thrilled to welcome broadcaster, writer and cleric Dr. Richard Holloway (to the event in Edinburgh only on 14 September). SE Artistic Director Jonathan Morton and violinist Daniel Pioro will also share their thoughts from a musician’s perspective, with Pioro having devised the sets of music to be performed on the evening.

Former cleric Dr. Richard Holloway caused controversy in 2000 when he resigned from his positions of Primus of the Scottish Episcopal Church and Bishop of Edinburgh. Claiming to be an “anti-religionist”, he has since written extensively on issues relating to religion in the modern world from an atheistic perspective, and passionately supported progressive causes such as LGBT rights. Currently lecturing at Goldsmiths, University of London, Dr. Guido Orgs has a PhD in Neuroscience and, as a trained dancer, has specifically researched the effects of music and dance on humans and animals, examining why we are so drawn to both.

Events in Dundee and Glasgow take place in non-concert venues. In Dundee, SE will be performing at West Ward Works, a former DC Thomson annuals warehouse, which is being transformed by one-off cultural events (most recently the Dundee Design Festival). In Glasgow, SE have chosen the apt surroundings of Glasgow Science Centre, with the audience free to wander the exhibits during the interval and after the concert.

The concert tour will also be enhanced by a series of ‘pausing with music’ workshops, run in collaboration with cancer charity Maggie’s. Devised for cancer sufferers and those around them, the workshops explore the role of music in enhancing mindfulness practice. First performed at the Dundee Maggie’s Centre (in the Ninewells Hospital campus)in 2016, these rewarding, emotional workshops received such positive feedback from participants that SE has continued its partnership, this year delivering events in Dundee, Fife and Airdrie.

In Dundee, the group will also deliver numerous events bringing music to the community through its SE Residency programme, established in 2012. This year’s events include a session with Sense Scotland, a life-drawing class with a live music soundtrack, and a performance in the Children’s Ward at Ninewells Hospital.

INTERVIEW: Richard Shelton on Sinatra And Me, coming to Eastwood Park

Following his ‘Best Actor in a Leading Role’ West End nominated performance as Frank Sinatra in RAT PACK and his 5-star, sell-out run at the Edinburgh Festival for 2 years running, Richard Shelton returns to the UK with his hit LA show that looks behind the iconic blue eyes of Frank Sinatra whilst still serving up his timeless hits. Richard kindly spared us some time in his busy schedule to chat about his hit show.

What we can expect from the show? 

It’s a show about hope – about how short life is and how important it is to try for your dreams, whatever they may be. I was 50 when I plucked up the courage to go pack my knapsack of dreams and move to Los Angeles. The show looks at what inspired me and how it links my life with Frank Sinatra and the incredible synchronicity that links our lives. I was nominated ‘Best Actor in a Leading Role’ for portraying Frank Sinatra in the hard hitting drama ‘Rat Pack Confidential’ in London’s West End and my interest in him comes from an actors perspective – what make him tick, how his mercurial personality made him the herculean icon he was. And of course the wonderful music. During the show, I go deep behind Sinatra’s blue eyes and evoke what is might have been like to spend an hour with him. I also explain how Sinatra’s tuxedo literally walked into my life – https://vimeo.com/155748882 and how I was one of the last people inside his last home before it was demolished by fluke.

It spills into a new drama I’m bringing to this year’s Edinburgh Festival, ‘Sinatra: RAW’ which imagines Frank Sinatra at his last intimate gig in Palm Springs before his retirement. The air is electric and people jostle for position. He drinks ‘One For My Baby’ too many and starts to reminisce. But things take an unexpected turn. This is the 2am Sinatra you dream of meeting: Dangerous. Unpredictable. Startling. Brilliant. He addresses his accusers on subjects ranging from his alleged Mafia connections, his womanising, to his famed hatred of the press. And in-between, he sings in that smoky midnight voice on subjects from lost love to getting even! Songs include ‘One For My Baby’, ‘My Way’, ‘I’m a Fool to Want You’, ‘I’ve Got You Under My Skin’ and a haunting acapella version of ‘My Foolish Heart’ which he sang to Ava Gardner from his hotel balcony at night in her bungalow below – true story!

What songs get the biggest reaction? 

‘Angel Eyes’ – I evoke Sinatra’s classic performance when he took on the persona of a drunk – it’s quite heart-breaking and very moving. And ‘That’s Life’ – it’s an anthem of being knocked back and picking yourself up again. Everyone can identify with it.

What’s coming up next year? Where else are you touring?

Right after the festival I have a show with the 72-piece Doha Philharmonic Orchestra in Qatar. In Spring 2019, I’m going on a 2 months tour to South Africa and New Zealand.

Why do you think Sinatra’s music still has such an enduring appeal?

Frank Sinatra was arguably the worlds best story teller through a song. When he sang of sadness he’d take you right there into the wee small hours with him. Or when he sang about ‘Flying to the Moon’ you soared up there too. He had an intuitive understanding of the lyrics which for him, came first, and through the words, he told a story. He also sang with attitude – you got the impression he couldn’t give a damn if you liked him or not which made him all the more appealing. And having one of the most beautiful voices ever known also helps.

How long has it taken for you to perfect your portrayal of Frank Sinatra?

About 17 years. I’m still learning.

Tell us what we can expect from the show?

Story telling, music and little known facts about Sinatra. I also perform songs from my  new album ‘Lost and Found’ which was recorded at Capitol Studios in LA alongside Sinatra’s band mates and in his studio using his microphone. The album comprises original big band arrangements including ‘An Englishman in Love in LA’ and ‘Sinatra and Me’ and jazz inspired arrangements of pop classics including, ‘It’s Not Unusual’ and ‘Oh, What a Night (Dec ’63)’’ which I perform as a haunting ballad. Sounds crazy, but it really works!

Do you find audiences differ as you travel around the country?

Audiences do differ but the one thing they have in common is a love of Sinatra and the music of that era. It’s timeless.

Elsa Canasta is a dark, funny and sexy evocation of the music of Cole Porter. With a touch of music hall magic, a singer who will share the stage and breathtaking partnering, the Scottish Ballet dancers will be having a ball. Choreographed by Javier de Frutos, a unique figure in the world of dance with a résumé that includes West End musicals, a Turner Prize nomination, Olivier and Critics’ Circle National Dance Awards, music videos and a full-length ballet in collaboration with the Pet Shop Boys.

Also on the bill will be Motion of Displacement by Bryan Arias, winner of the 6th Copenhagen International Choreography Competition in 2013. Arias is a young American choreographer at the start of an exciting career that is sure to propel him to the heights of his profession, Scottish Ballet is the first company to bring his unique blend of dance styles to the UK.

An exclusive commission from Scottish Ballet, Motion of Displacement will explore the causes and effects of storytelling, inspired by his own childhood memories of his mother’s journey from her native land in pursuit of love.
