Dear Bridge House Supporters
Welcome to our 2018 ‘Spring Season’ which we believe holds something for everyone.
Kicking it off we have Control – a new play written by Bridge House regular Tim McArthur. A gritty drama about a gay relationship as it blooms and grows – however as it does – so does a darkness: in this battle of love who has the ‘control’ of the situation? The Show is directed by Guy Retallack – our Co-Artistic Director.
Following on we have a brand new comedy sketch show – I Wanna Sex You Up. Featuring a cast of West End Performers dealing with issues like dating app disasters, yummy mummies and their first world problems, call centre girls.
Our Regular Comedy Revenge in Penge nights are back on the 26thApril, 24th Mayand a special evening in conjunction with the Crystal Palace Festival on the 14th June.
Another event that we are hosting in association with the Festival is OUR IN HOUSEsemi-staged performance of The Friday Man – winner of one of the highest awards for playwriting in Canada. The play is centred around a survivor of the worst college massacres in Canada and examines how the dead are not the only victims. This is one of the most powerful pieces of writing we have read for a long time.
Finally we have William Blake – Letters From Paradise – a one man show that uncovers the astonishing razor-sharp theatricality of Blake the wordsmith, a charming and fiery dissenter with a powerful voice that soars across the centuries from a world uncannily close to our own, to scoff and to celebrate, to lament and rejoice. This tribute to a National Treasure performed by Kenneth Jay (Clarence in our production of It’s a Wonderful Life.
