Theatre 62 had originally planned to stage Honeymoon Suite, but it has been replaced by the Christmas Revue.
By David Storey. Directed by David Page.
As five apparently unrelated characters meet in a seemingly insignificant garden, the autumnal sun shines overhead and everybody waits for rain.
What they discuss is superficially anything that can pass the time. What is portrayed is the very essence of England, Englishness, class, unfulfilled ambition, loves lost and homes that no longer exist.
Jane Eyre, by Charlotte Bronte, adapted by Polly Teale
Directed by Jackie Dowse
A beloved classic and undisputed masterpiece, Charlotte Brontë’s Jane Eyre explores class, society, love and religion through the eyes of one of fiction’s most unique and memorable female protagonists.
The Director writes…
‘The April production, which is also Theatre 62’s Bromley Full-Length Play Festival entry, is ‘Jane Eyre’, adapted for the stage by Polly Teale. This is a modern interpretation of a timeless classic and although challenging, with many roles doubling, should provide performers and audience alike with a truly exciting and dramatic experience.
Scripts will be available from Theatre 62 from the beginning of October. Please see the script for characters and suggested doubling. Audition pieces will be available at the Read Thru’.
– The Read Thru’ is on Wednesday 23rd October from 8.00 pm at the Stage Manager’s home in Beckenham. Please email email@example.com for the address and directions
– 1st Auditions on Friday 25th October at Theatre 62 in the Hall at 8.00 pm
– 2nd Auditions on Monday 28th October at Theatre 62 in the Bar at 8.00 pm
If you are interested in taking part but are unable to make any of the above dates or if you have any questions please contact the director, Jackie Dowse via firstname.lastname@example.org
Bouncers Remix, by John Godber
Directed by Howard James
Bouncers shows a night on the tiles from the point of view of the men on the door. It is a funny, energetic piece of highly theatrical storytelling where the men are at once themselves, and every character they happen to meet on a night at work at the nightclub.
