    • 'Drowning on Dry Land' by Sir Alan Ayckbourn
      Drowning on Dry Land is a 2004 play by British playwright Alan Ayckbourn, his 66th to be produced. Exploring the culture of B-list celebrities, it is a comedy about the rise and fall of Charlie Conrad, a man apparently famous for being a failure. 

      Charlie Conrad is a celebrity. His talent? He hasn’t got one; the nation took him to their hearts for very publicly being unable to do anything competently. One fateful day, however, Charlie meets Marsha, and his marriage and career go into freefall … Drowning on Dry Land examines the current obsession with celebrity for its own sake and chillingly but hilariously demonstrates how celebrities can be destroyed as quickly as they are made.

      Adam Alexander, Louise Gaul, Chris Lang, Mark Campbell, Alex Parker, Shereen Sands and Mark Foulds

      With an insatiable appetite for sex and booze, Baal lives his life for the moment. From stage to sewer he leaves a trail of devastation and recklessly dispensed lyricism in his wake.
      Bertolt Brecht's first full length play, Baal, rages with the fire of youth. Nothing escapes young Brecht's burning wit and self-immolating irony here. An anti-hero and cult artist at odds with the world, Baal indulges in fleshy decadence spewing surreal poetry and bawdy libretto.
      Drunken and depraved, he strips romanticism bare and throws it onto the shit-heap. The secretions that stain Baal's world glisten to reveal the excesses of youth and blind idolatry of creative genius.
      Baal tells the story of a travelling musician who wrecks the lives of anyone and everyone he comes into contact with, sleeping around and drinking himself into oblivion.
      Whilst Baal’s many sexual relationships and his use and abuse of power could portray his as the stereotypical bloke, this production explores gender and sexuality politics, through androgynous casting.
      Featuring a soundtrack of rock classics, performed live by an actor-musician ensemble, the music will take you into the world of the rock star; where the cult of Baal’s celebrity is more important than the actions he takes and the lives he ruins.
      By creating a wild environment on stage that reflects the degradation of Baal, from debauchery to infamy, through the use of  the elements, director Robert J. Stanex is bringing the didacticism of Brecht’s writing to the forefront, writhing in dirt, drowning in fluid and revelling in the birth of Epic Theatre.
      This is Sedos’ first venture into Brecht, however we are no strangers to tackling difficult subject matter or complex theatrical conventions. We are excited to present this interpretation of such an iconic writer and titan of theatre.
      Baal contains strong language, nudity and scenes of a violent and sexual nature.
      This amateur production of Baal is presented by special arrangement with SAMUEL FRENCH, LTD.
      Tuesday 22 January to Saturday 26 January 2019
      Evenings at 7.30pm, Saturday matinee at 2.30pm
      Tickets: £11.50-£20
      Gala Night: Friday 25 January
      Tickets £15.50-£20. Ticket includes a free glass of fizz, a show programme and a late bar.
