Rose Theatre: Rich Hall and more in February and March line-up
6:00am Sunday 5th January 2014 in News
Jealous wives, a time-travelling classic, and laughs from the Comedy Store are all lined up to keep you entertained at the Rose Theatre.
Thaw out in February and March with a mix of events for all tastes.
Carrying over from the end of January is Fallen Angels, a Noel Coward favourite following two lonely wives who learn an old lover plans to drop by for a visit.
As their passionless husbands are away playing golf, Julia and Jane hit the champagne – and their evening descends into jealous bickering and bad behaviour.
After that it is the turn of the men to overindulge themselves, in Michael Frayn’s farce Donkeys’ Years, directed by Rose returnee Lisa Spirling.
At a university reunion a group of successful, middle-class graduates swill wine and stories before everything gets predictably messy.
On February 23 the Comedy Store sets up with Comedy Roadshow veteran Sean Collins, alongside MC Rich Wilson, Chris McCausland, Andy Askins and Prince Abdi .
American Rich Hall will also tickle ribs with music and jokes in March.
Former artistic director Stephen Unwin makes a return to the Rose with Moon Tiger, a haunting story of loss and desire based on Penelope Lively’s 1987 Booker Prize-winning novel.
Flamenco guitar virtuoso Juan Martin will play a one-night-only concert at the beginning of March, while later in the month adults can enjoy a night of raunchy cabaret with Masques and Basques.
And the stage version of the beloved tale Tom’s Midnight Garden will come to Kingston.
Tom always believed time-travel was impossible – until the grandfather clock in the hallway struck 13 times.
He is transported to a secret garden and enjoys magical adventures with new friends, before solving a riddle behind some strange goings-on.
Mid-March will see a Shakespeare double-bill.
The Propellor group will have the audience rolling in the aisles when they perform both A Midsummer Night’s Dream and A Comedy of Errors.
Ending the season will be Brecht’s classic play A Life of Galileo, following the ups and downs of the famous scientist’s career.
