What's on at Bridge House?

THURSDAY 12th APRIL - SUNDAY 15th APRIL 2018 - CONTROL

Control - a new play by Tim McArthur, directed by Guy Retallack (Co Artistic Director of the BH Theatre)

Most gay men have quite complex personalities, insecurities, acceptance issues in society, commitment issues in relationships and levels of parental guilt. How does this affect them in their search for the perfect partner? 'Control' deals with a relationship that blooms and grows, but as it continues a darkness begins to show.  Who has final control of the situation?

Reviews for CONTROL:

WEST END WILMA 5
“Control is also funny. Which is its charm and at brutal disarm to some of the darker sides and emotions on show. Control is well worth your time.
It’s bound to transfer but get to see if while you can.”

BOYZ 4
“As the twists and turns of the drama are played out the whole pace increases to a finale that will take your breath away. Gripping stuff!”

FAIRYPOWEREDPRO 4*
“Control might be short, but it is almost perfectly formed, packing an emotional punch that will stay with you for days.”

SATURDAY 16th & SUNDAY 17th JUNE 2018 - THE DECEMBER MAN

The December Man – By Colleen Murphy 

December 1989, a man entered a packed class of a Montréal Polytechnique carrying a gun. After separating the male and female students he claimed that his actions would “Fight Feminism” and then shot all 9 women in the room, 6 of whom died. He then left the classroom and rampaged through the school killing 8 more.

One of the survivors, Jean is crippled by guilt and anxiety as he tried to understand the aftermath. At home his parents Benoît and Kathleen do everything they can to help their beloved son cope with his guilt and rage… but Jean’s young life becomes unglued.

The December Man was awarded the prestigious 'Governor General’s Award' in 2007 and has had many critically reviewed performances across the Globe.

Age Recommendation: 16+

This performance will be semi staged to a high degree in a similar manner to our productions of Howerd's End and Two.

Performances: Saturday 16th June 4pm & 7:30pm, Sunday 17th at 4pm.

Tickets: £10.00 each and can be purchased by CLICKING HERE.

FRIDAY 22nd & SATURDAY 23rd JUNE 2018 - WILLIAM BLAKE: LETTERS FROM PARADISE

As British national treasures go, William Blake, famously eccentric painter, poet, and visionary, is often hard to fathom. Some of his epic poetry he claimed to write by dictation from above – 'I am under the direction of Messengers from Heaven, Daily and Nightly'. 

But much of Blake’s other written work was carefully and painstakingly crafted. Most of what he had to say resonates sharply to this day, yet so little of his sublime poetry, prose and humour is known to the public, and is rarely heard on stage. 

“William Blake: Letters From Paradise”, a newly devised one-man show, is going to change all that. Actor and Blake devotee Kenneth Jay (Clarence in our production of "It's a Wonderful Life" 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. To admonish and encourage with passion, elegance and good humour, our ascent in this modern world.

Performances: Friday 7:30pm, Saturday 4pm and 7:30pm
Tickets: £10.00 each and can book by CLICKING HERE
