Pride and Prejudice – Adapted by John-Robert Partridge

14th June – 1st July

Pride and Prejudice is Jane Austen's humorous story of love and life among English gentility during the Regency. Mr Bennet is a gentleman living in Hertfordshire with his wily and loving wife. The Bennets have five daughters; the beautiful Jane, clever Elizabeth, bookish Mary, immature Kitty and the wild Lydia; they are all looking for a future path to take.


After Aulis - Rowena Cooper

18th July - 21st July

Tread the Boards welcomes After Aulis, performed by TTB regular and friend Emmeline Braefield. After Aulis is a black (and blue) comedy, inspired by Euripides Iphigenia in Aulis. Like the original, this one-woman show explores the ageless moral decision: how far should you sacrifice your own life for those around you? However, this Iphigenia is no innocent victim: shes a sarcastic, self-obsessed adulterer, and shes running away from her fiance, mother, and disabled brother as fast as her stilettos allow

 

The Wizard of Oz - Adapted by John-Robert Partridge
31st July – 27th August

When a tornado rips through Kansas, Dorothy and her dog, Toto, are whisked away in their house to the magical land of Oz. They follow the Yellow Brick Road toward the Emerald City to meet the Wizard, and en route they meet a Scarecrow that needs a brain, a Tin Man missing a heart, and a Cowardly Lion who wants courage. But all is not what it seems in the land of Oz.

 

Jane Eyre - Adapted by Catherine Prout
6th - 23rd September

Jane Eyre is Charlotte Bronte's story of an orphaned girl who lives with her aunt and cousins, the Reeds, at Gateshead Hall. Follow Jane through the twists and turns of fate, from a tormented girl to a love-struck but headstrong young woman.

 

Sweeney Todd - Adapted by John-Robert Partridge and Catherine Prout
