A Doll’s House

by Henrik Ibsen

The Open Space Theatre Company

Nora and Torvald Helmer seem set for a comfortable and blissfully happy future - until the past comes back to haunt the young wife and mother, a woman who has spun a web of deceit and pretence to conceal a guilty secret. Cathy Gill and Darren France lead a fine cast in presenting a global classic. Actors in this production also include Peter Sowerbutts and Open Space newcomers David Blood and Mia Chadwick.

Open Space, now Resident Theatre Company at Wingfield Barns, has been associated with the venue since its formation in 2008. Sell-out performances in the past have included The Importance of Being Earnest, by Oscar Wilde, Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf, by Edward Albee, Woman in Mind, by Alan Ayckbourn and, earlier this year, Habeas Corpus, by Alan Bennett.

Black Ice

…by Eileen Ryan

A play performed by Made To Measure Theatre Company with local choir, Crossing the Border. Together they are busy brewing up a suspenseful evening of drama and music, a beguiling winter warmer - with hidden bodies! Four holiday-makers in search of winter sun find themselves thrown together après-ski over a glass or five of schnapps. Outside, the snow is deep and crisp and even and, as the shadows lengthen, the storytelling begins. Stories about the peculiar characters who used to live on the mountain and a mysterious furry beast that terrorises the valley. Add a generous measure of seasonal music from Crossing the Border and, voila! - a potent cocktail that’s a real killer.

A Christmas Carol

RoughCast Theatre Company present an original adaptation of that perennial seasonal favourite, Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol. The story of the reclamation of that self-confessed “Humbug”, Ebenezer Scrooge, never fails to delight audiences of all ages with its colourful cast of famous characters both real and ghostly.

RoughCast’s promenade performance has carols to sing along to and dances to join in with (for those so inclined). It will get your festive season off to the merriest of starts - even if Christmas tends to bring out your own inner Scrooge!
