    Baal

    until
    BAAL by BERTOLT BRECHT translated by PETER TEGEL 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.

    Teenager Sorrel fights to keep herself and her abandoned mother, once a dot.com businesswoman, financially afloat by setting up as a part-time prostitute, advertising for clients on the Internet and persuading her tearful school chum to act as her maid.
  24. Open Auditions for BCP's May 2019 Production of James Cawood's "Death Knell" (performance dates 1 - 4 May 2019) will be held at The Mill Arts Centre on Thursday 6 December 2018, 7.30pm. All welcome!Successful Playwright Henry Roth takes delight in telling his neurotic wife, Evelyn, he has a new, ‘seismic’ play to unleash on the theatrical world. To prepare for its stage debut, he has invited the charming and charismatic (but unknown) actor, Jack Willoughby to their remote Highland home to prepare for the leading role of murderer. Jack’s arrival sends Evelyn into a flat spin when she realises he is her lover - a relationship developed during her time supposedly in rehab in London. Is Henry aware of the relationship? With the arrival of Inspector Lazan from Scotland Yard - apparently on the hunt for the Highland serial killer, The Ghoul - the play takes another turn. Is he who he claims to be? In a breath-taking script, sending the audience reeling from one plot twist to another, the genre of “Thriller” is taken on an exciting new journey. Each character is well drawn, the dialogue is lean and the action is non-stop. Actors should be prepared for physically demanding fight scenes and use of weapons. Previous stage combat experience not essential as training will be given. Roles available : Henry Roth (40-60)Evelyn, Henry’s wife (20-40)Jack Willoughby (20-40)Inspector Lazan (20-40)You do not need to be a member to audition but will be required to join BCP if cast.
