China Plate presents Caroline Horton and Company�s
Mess
on Monday 18 and Tuesday 19 November
7.45 pm
Tickets: �9.50

Josephine is putting on a play - Boris and Sistahl help. It's about anorexia. But don�t let that put you off. Unflinchingly, they confront big issues (and extremely tiny ones). Today they will tackle a particularly thin elephant in the room. Obsession, addiction and not wanting to get out of bed: a play with songs from 2013 Olivier Award nominated Caroline Horton (You�re Not Like Other Girls Chrissy).

2012 Stage Award Winner for Best Ensemble.

Comes perilously close to genius and announces Horton as a major talent **** Time Out.
****Evening Standard ****Financial Times ****Metro

An Oundle School Production of
Arcadia by Tom Stoppard
on Thursday 5, Friday 6 and Saturday 7 December
7.45 pm
Tickets: �6

In Sidley Park, Derbyshire, in 1809, Thomasina Coverly proves at thirteen far brighter than her tutor, Septimus Hodge. Lady Croom, Thomasina�s mother is busy having her park landscaped by Mr Noakes. Mr Noakes is busy spying on Septimus who is dallying with Mrs Chater, the wife of an indifferent poet, in the gazebo. And Lord Byron is staying for the week end.

In the present day, Hannah and Bernard, two academics, try to make sense of what happened all those years ago. Was there a scandal? Who exactly was the Sidley Park hermit? And how far ahead of her time could the prodigy Thomasina have been?

Tom Stoppard�s witty and fiercely intelligent play examines Physics, sex (�the attraction Newton left out�) and the landscape with verbal brilliance and dramatic daring. A talented cast of Sixth Form pupils brings a play that has come to be regarded as a peak in British post-war drama to The Stahl in a production directed by Ali Boag and designed by Ali Dean.

This amateur production of Arcadia is presented by special arrangement with SAMUEL FRENCH LTD.

C-12 Dance Theatre�s
Shhh!
on Tuesday 10 December
7.45 pm

Books flying overhead, free-running on moving shelves and falling in love with the enemy � all this in a library?!

C-12 Dance Theatre�s exciting and explosive new show Shhh! is a love story told over four seasons by five theatrical performers who manipulate the set and surroundings to create an innovative and powerful piece of dance theatre. The set is mostly recycled from the New Barnfield Library, Hatfield Hertfordshire, which sadly closed down in 2012 � but Shhh! brings it gloriously back to life.

Choreographed by Artistic Director of C-12 Dance Theatre, Annie-Lunnette Deakin-Foster.
Original, specially commissioned music composed and produced by award winning Film and TV composer, Jamie Salisbury.
Projection and Lighting Design, Arnim Friss for Pixelbox.

Shhh! is produced by C-12 Dance Theatre, ARC, Stockton, Hawthorne Theatre, funded by Arts Council, Hawthorne Theatre, ARC, Stockton and C-12 Dance Theatre, with additional support from The Albany and Dance Digital.
