Fallen Leaves

30th October to 11th November 2018

In the autumn we shall be presenting a Gallimaufry to mark the armistice at the end of the First World War. It will include popular songs/music hall of the time, the war poets, letters from the trenches, sketches (a la Black Adder or indeed ‘The Good Old Days’). It will not be a respectful but not a solemn occasion. The final two performances will be at the East Riding Theatre, Beverley, on the 11th day of the 11th month. The full schedule will be announced soon. 

 

During the first half of 2017 we mounted platform performances of Dylan Thomas’s

Under Milk Wood

at the East Riding Theatre.

All performances were sold out, but we plan revivals there and/or a tour of East Riding villages.

 In Spring 2015 and Autumn 2016

we toured with Patrick Garland’s

Brief Lives

a highly amusing one-man show which follows a day in the life of

 

John Aubrey

the seventeenth century diarist

See audience reaction at http://otherlives.org.uk/brief-lives-comments-reviews)

“Everything is here – wit, farce, tragedy, pathos – often bawdy, frequently uproariously funny. A truly delightful entertainment.”The Guardian

 

Old John Aubrey takes his audience by the hand and, with a twinkle in his eye, leads you through a day late in his life, launching into wicked tales.  He regales you with tales of his contemporaries – Oliver Cromwell, Charles II, Nell Gwyn – and stories gleaned as a child from folk who knew the likes of Shakespeare, Queen Elizabeth, Sir Walter Raleigh. By turns he is a stand-up comic, a philosopher, a lodger in a garret room suffering crying babies and other noisy co-tenants. Once he starts speaking to you he is like the Ancient Mariner – you cannot choose but hear.
