The Devil’s Bride

Date: Sunday 21 October 2018
Location: Civic Theatre
Time: 7.30pm
Produced by: Rumpus Theatre Company
Price: Full £15 Concessions £13

Based on the chilling story by classic Victorian Gothic horror author Sheridan Le Fanu.

Aspiring 17th Century painter Godfried Schalken seeks an apprenticeship with famous artist Gerard Douw, and falls in love with Douw’s niece Rose. But Douw achieved his fame by making a pact with the Devil, and when Gerard attempts to wed Rose, his evil rival returns to claim his wicked prize.

Last Autumn’s production of “THE RED ROOM” was “captivating” (British Theatre Guide) and recommended “to anyone who enjoys sitting on the edge of their seat” (whatsgoodtodo.co.uk). While “CAPTAIN MURDERER” the production before was “the most entertaining horror to hit the stage for some time delightfully despicable and fantastic run” (remotegoat.co.uk)

This Autumn’s production “THE DEVIL’S BRIDE” is the perfect Gothic Horror treat as evenings draw in!

Now we don’t want to start Christmas like this, do we?

Cheating at snakes and ladders, fighting over comic books, a bungled infidelity beneath the tree. Christmas has arrived in the Bunker household along with family and friends. But as the children lurk just out of sight, it’s the adults who are letting the side down.

Presiding over the festivities are two warring uncles, one a kindly, incompetent doctor with an interminable puppet show to perform; the other a bullying retired security guard who dominates the TV, brings toy guns for his nieces and determines there’s a thief in their midst.

Banish any winter blues with one of Alan Aykbourn’s best loved and sharpest comedies.

Location: Civic Theatre
Time: 7.30pm
Produced by: Rotherham Rep
Price: Full £9, Concessions £8.

By Anthony Jay & Jonathan Lynn

The UK is in crisis: debt is spiraling, unemployment rising and the fragile coalition cabinet, led by Prime Minister Jim Hacker, is at breaking point. But salvation may exist in the form of a complex pipeline deal with the oil-rich country of Kumranistan.

However, when the Kumranistan Foreign Secretary makes a shocking request of Jim’s Private Secretary, moral considerations collide with the economic future of the nation.

How will Jim and his team reconcile the two?

From the writers of the original television series Yes, Prime Minister, comes this equally sharply satirical stage version.
