    New Stagers' presents Ghosts by Ibsen

    New Stagers' October play is Ghosts by Henrik Ibsen, Adapted by Richard Eyre, directed by Ian Pring Dates: Tuesday 24 to Saturday 28 October 2017 (no Friday performance) – 7:30pm Oswald, a young artist, returns to his home from Paris, carrying a hidden and deadly disease. His mother is opening an orphanage in memory of her late husband, a pillar of the community whose perversions were kept from public view. But the orphanage is uninsured and one of the builders is careless with matches… Increasingly desperate, Oswald asks his mother to help him die when the time comes.

    Perve

    until
    Award winning New Stagers present Perve by Stacey Gregg, first performed in 2011. Gethin has just finished his film course and reckons he’s the next Scorsese. His mum is on at him to do her friend’s wedding video – before the couple get divorced. But Gethin is interested in a much more daring project – one that will get him into dangerously deep water, question his idealism and turn his life and that of his family upside down. Perve is an irreverent and unsettling play that interrogates paranoia, ambiguity and innocence in our highly sexualised world. Find out more and book your tickets here: newstagers.co.uk/perve

Two other men, supposedly police officers, arrive and reveal that one of the kidnappers has been murdered. Soon, however, it is clear that these two are far from what they seem. A highly exciting thriller which will keep you guessing until the curtain falls! Find out more and book your tickets here: http://newstagers.co.uk/house-guest/

    Follow Me

    until
    Follow Me is a dramatisation of the final moments of the beautiful party girl, Ruth Ellis, famed for the cold, unrepented murder of her lover… and for being the last woman in Britain to be hanged. She was executed by Britain’s Chief Executioner, Albert Pierrepoint, feted for dispatching over two-hundred Nazi war criminals. Follow Me takes us into the worlds of the hanged and the hangman in the moments leading to Ellis’ execution. Explaining her motives yet showing no remorse, she draws us into the mindset of one driven to commit the ultimate crime. Pierrepoint, the ultimate professional, but one who increasingly feels the moral pressure and growing public distaste for capital punishment and now plagued by doubts about the value of his life’s work and the craft he has mastered, explains the mechanisms, both physical and psychological, of being a pub landlord by night and a public executioner by day.

    Di and Viv and Rose

    until
    Aged eighteen, three women join forces at university. Life is fun. Living is intense. Together they are unassailable. This play is a funny and thoughtful exploration of friendship’s impact on life, and life’s impact on friendship. This is a story of female friendship that is neither sentimental, nor nostalgic. It just feels real.

    Puss in Boots

    until
    We all know that January can be a bit of a struggle, but don't you worry, it's not all doom & gloom - the New Stagers' panto, Puss in Boots, kicks off at the end of January! So now you have something to look forward to... better than looking behind you for baddies right?! Come and join us (plus a host of hilarious characters!) in St Anne's Hall, Wansdworth, for our take on this classic tale, which runs for ten shows over two weekends (22 - 24 & 29 - 31 January). Both weekends include evening and matinee shows - so be sure to bring the whole family! Don't miss it... or Mrs Mimi Miller, our resident Dame, will have to have a word with you! Event details: Poor Colin Miller is mortified to find that he has been left out of his late father’s will. His only inheritance is Puss, the family cat. But during a visit to a very special shoe shop, Puss finds a pair of magic boots, which allow him to walk and talk when he wears them. Puss sets about upgrading Colin’s status, convincing the King and the Princess that Colin is a rich Marquis, who owns a fabulous castle in the Northern Woods. In fact, the castle is the home of the Magician Oofledinkums, and the Magician does not take kindly to strangers who seem to be attempting to get him evicted. What follows is a wild ride, as Puss, Colin, and Mrs Miller pit themselves against not just the Magician, but a clutch of villainous characters, including Snitch the Witch, and even Mrs Miller’s own dastardly daughters.

    Macbeth by New Stagers

    until
    Macbeth and Banquo, fresh from victory in battle, are met by three ‘weird sisters’, witches who greet him with the prediction that he shall be King. Banquo is told he will be the father of kings, but not be king himself. Immediately after the witches vanish, Macbeth is deeply disturbed, wondering if the witches mean him good or ill. When she learns of Macbeth’s encounter with the witches, Lady Macbeth persuades Macbeth to murder King Duncan within their own walls that very night. Macbeth does so, but is tortured by the deed, and immediately comes under suspicion from Banquo, Duncan’s two sons, and Macduff, the Thane of Fife. When Duncan’s sons flee the country, Macbeth is made King, but his paranoia and insecurity immediately lead him to arrange the murder of Banquo and his young son Fleance. But Fleance escapes, and Banquo’s ghost appears to Macbeth at a celebration feast that same night. On the verge of madness, Macbeth visits the witches, who trick him into believing he is invincible. He has Macduff’s wife and children savagely slaughtered, and retreats to a stronghold, deserted by all save a few fanatics and his now insane wife. As the witches’ deception is revealed, Macbeth desperately hangs on to power and faces his enemy Macduff, confident of victory, only to find that a malevolent fate has one last terrible surprise in store… Tickets available from: http://www.atgtickets.com/shows/macbeth-2/new-wimbledon-studio/

    Blithe Spirit

    until
    Widower Charles Condomine gets more than he bargained for when he hosts a séance, in this out-of-this-world farce. Researching his new book, he and his second wife Ruth invite local medium Madame Arcati to their house. Both the Condomines and their guests Dr and Mrs Bradman are convinced she is a fake. But when Madame Arcati leaves, Charles gets a shock that sobers him up from his Martini-induced fug: his first wife Elvira is back from the dead. And, if that wasn’t enough, she has a plan of her own, and she’ll stop at nothing to achieve it. Blithe Spirit is one of Noel Coward’s most famous comedies. It was first performed in 1941, starring Margaret Rutherford as the medium Madame Arcati, and has been performed numerous times since–including in the West End in 2014, when it starred Angela Lansbury as Madame Arcati. Based in Wandsworth SW18, we are one of South West London’s longest-established amateur theatre groups. www.newstagers.co.uk

    Have a Good Week Till Next Week

    until
    Have a Good Week Till Next Week is a new play by Ian Pring. It tells the story of what happens when two players who are involved in a ring feud become enemies for real when one becomes involved with the other's wife. The show is set against the backdrop of the bizarre world of British wrestling in the 1970s and 80s, which attracted over 10 million viewers until ITV cancelled it in 1988. 1975. Every Saturday afternoon, 10 million people tune into ITV to watch the wrestling. Its stars, including Giant Haystacks, Mick McManus, and Kendo Nagasaki, are household names. The papers say the matches are all fixed; the public don't seem to care. Mixing fictional characters with well-known contemporary figures from the world of wrestling, this is a gritty but affectionate look (think "The Damned United" meets "The Wrestler") at an age when men in leotards, grunted, groaned and threw each other out of the ring at venues like Huddersfield Town Hall, into the laps of screaming grannies armed with hat pints and knitting needles. www.newstagers.co.uk 29 October to 1 November at 7.45 pm. To book visit our website or call 07814 611239 or email admin@newstagers.co.uk Venue: St Anne's Church Hall, St Ann's Crescent, Wandsworth, London, SW18 2LR Tickets: £9 Adults; £5 Concessions.

    Stepping Out by Richard Harris

    until
    This comedy follows the lives of the members of an amateur tap dance class. Each attending for their own reasons, Harris's play is a wonderfully endearing story of how determination, friendship and camaraderie can shape even the most bashful into proud performers. A mixed, and otherwise incompatible, group of seven women and one man meet weekly for their tap dancing class in a dingy north London church hall. Each is struggling to conquer either their inhibitions or dance technique, or both! Then the day comes when Mavis breaks the news to the group that they have been invited to perform in front of an audience for a big charity concert. With varying degrees of talent and determination, we see how each class member copes with the challenge...but with only a few weeks to learn an impressive tap routine, will they do it in time? Or will they all, literally, fall flat on their faces? "Stepping Out" is presented by special arrangement with SAMUEL FRENCH LTD. To book tickets visit our website www.newstagers.co.uk or call 07814 611239 or admin@newstagers.co.uk £9 Adults; £5 Concessions St Anne's Church Hall, St Ann's Crescent, Wandsworth, London, SW18 2LR
