Our season continues with …
The Cast is as follows
- Henry Roth – Andrew Parsons
- Evelyn Roth – Fiona Mikel
- Jack Willoughby – Steve Ramsden
- DCI Lazan – Sam Brassington
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.
- Jacob Engstrand – Anthony Collier
- Mrs. Helen Alving – Hilary Beaton
- Pastor Manders- Phillip Croxson
- Osvald Alving – Ben Harwood
- Regina Engstrand – Katy Roberts
All of these relationships have had actions within them long ago that have consequences. Violence, betrayal, deceit. They create ghosts and those ghosts from the past have a significant impact over all of the characters now.
Ghosts is a powerful, shocking drama, even more so given that fact that it was written in the 1880s. Ibsen is the Godfather of the great Norse dramatic storytelling line that continues today with the modern BBC4 Nordic drama phenomena. Henrik Ibsen’s Ghosts – the original Scandi-noir.
Directed by Chrissie Garrett
- The Manager – Nikki Nunweiler
- Emma – Almira Brion
The play shows there is no place for individualism and privacy in a growing corporate world, and that compliance is the only accepted way forward.
This play will be our 2019 entry to the Lighthorne Drama Festival (June). Other Festival entries are yet to be confirmed. The play will also be performed at the BCP Season Preview in September 2019.
The play begins in the living room of Alan and Sue, where they are joined by Kelly and Dean to read a play that Sue has written. Alan, a teacher of theatre, as well as a chauvinistic boor, makes fun of the play and as he continues to drink, of his wife as well. The “reading” turns into an emotional free-for-all as he recognizes himself being parodied in the script and as his relationship with Kelly is revealed. From then on, reality keeps changing, and the audience is repeatedly surprised until the final twist.
The cast was as follows:
#BCPAWMSome audience feedback from this week …"What a brilliant production this is. Excellent acting by all four members, had us guessing the end all the way through. Haven’t seen one as good for quite some time and we go regularly to five different theatres, although "The Cripple of Inishmaan" came close. Thanks again for an enjoyable evenings entertainment."Tickets still available for tonight's final performance from The Mill Arts Centre Box office on 01295 279002https://www.themillartscentre.co.uk/shows/bcp-an-audience-with-murder/Be great to see you!
