The Turn of the Screw

"Nobody but me, till now, has ever heard. It's beyond

New for 2018, we're proud to present a brand new

horror and corruption.

In an isolated country house, a young governess
arrives to take care of her new charges, Miles and
Flora. But before long she begins to believe there is
something darker at work in the depths of Bly House,
and battles to save the children from the mysterious
figures who seek to corrupt them.

The Turn of the Screw premiered at the 2018
Edinburgh Fringe Festival, enjoying a sold-out
three week run at the Underbelly Cowgate.

Running time: 60 minutes

Closer

Friday 22nd & Sat 23rd March 2019

7.30pm

Patrick Marber's incredible play about truth. A celebrated piece of work for an adult audience.


Marber’s raw tale of sexual betrayal among four star-crossed characters earned him comparisons with the emotional heavyweights of 20th-century theatre.

“It is right up there with Williams’s Streetcar, Mamet’s Oleanna, Albee’s Virginia Woolf, Pinter’s Old Times and Hare’s Skylight,” wrote one critic.

Josie Rourke, the artistic director of the Donmar, describes it as “one of the great plays about the human heart”. 

It’s about love, sex and the damage we do to each other in the names of these gods, with or without meaning it. (The Guardian)


Page-2-Stage Productions have been touring work across the country since 2010 and this is their first visit to the King's Theatre.

Rosencrantz & Guildenstern are Dead

Wednesday 3rd - Friday 5th April 2019

7pm


QE Senior Drama Production

The play cleverly re-interprets Shakespeare's Hamlet from the point of view of two minor characters: Rosencrantz and Guildenstern. The Laurel-and-Hardy-like pair are totally incidental to the action of Hamlet, subject to the whims of the King Claudius – who gets them to betray Hamlet – and then tricked by Hamlet into delivering a letter that condemns them to death. Tom Stoppard's breakthrough play. play turns Hamlet on its head by giving these two the main roles and reducing all of Shakespeare's major characters (including Hamlet) to minor roles. Written around and in-between the lines of Shakespeare's play, Stoppard brilliantly takes the main concerns of contemporary theatre, the inevitability of death, the breakdown in communication and feeling – and inserts them into the text of a much earlier play.
