Love Letters directed by Cherry Cabban
Rescheduled, Covid permitting, for Jan 12-16 2021
Love Letters, by A. R. Gurney that was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize for Drama. A disarmingly funny and unforgettably emotional portrait about the powerful connection of love. Melissa Gardner and Andrew Makepeace Ladd III. recount and remember the notes, letters and cards – in which over nearly 50 years, they discuss their hopes and ambitions, dreams and disappointments, victories and defeats – that have passed between them throughout their separated lives. An evocative, touching, frequently funny but always telling pair of character studies.

Chaplin is a gentle play; with a little edge to it. Rather like Chaplin’s films.The Tramp made Chaplin the best-known and best-paid film actor of his age, opened the doors of society and celebrity, and gave him riches and endless young women.Not bad for a street urchin brought up in the Dickensian slums and workhouses of late 19th century London! Chaplin’s career in film spanned the first sixty years of the movie industry. Did Chaplin’s genius develop alongside or did it remain only in those early silents?
Chaplin created an image of himself for public consumption that hid the darker sides of his personality. Pip Utton steps in and out of the screen to become Chaplin, stripping away the myths and revealing the man beneath.
Margaret Thatcher: Pip IS The ‘Iron Lady’! Saviour or witch? Love her or hate her? Not for Pip to decide, only to portray. She divided the nation like no other politician, she changed the face of British, perhaps world politics forever, and the effects of her influence and policies are still felt today. Listen once again to her philosophies, her inspiration and her logic, and then take the chance to ask Her a question!!!!
The performance is full of laughs and at the same time raises serious thoughts and discussions and, because of the audience involvement every performance is different!
The Hunchback of Notre Dame: Darkly enthralling and utterly heart breaking, this arresting one man show is more evocative than any I have seen. Pip Utton masterfully delivers a hauntingly realistic portrayal of a man who has been so hurt by the cruelties endured due to his disfigurements that he plans to fall to his death from the top of Notre Dame. However this poignant climax is only reached once we have been privy to Quasimodo’s life story. Actor and script converge to form a character whose depth of pain, sorrow, and anger are almost overwhelming; each word is loaded with a depth of meaning that is unfaltering. A one man masterpiece.
Spring 2022- Oliver!
