Cradle of the Cruel Mistress

Cloud 8 Theatre Company

11th - 13th July

Captain Benjamin Bligh, having been disgracefully forced on a leave on absence after a mutiny on his ship due to the damning testimonies of some of the survivors, returns to Naval service a changed man.
His wife, his new shipmates and the grand admiral have all lost faith in his once great leadership and his command hangs by a thread.

Two of the former sailors of HMS Parchment, the leaders of the fateful mutiny, were hanged at the end of their trials for their crimes, yet their heads follow the Parchment in death, speaking of a terrible fate of the crew of the blood-soaked ship.


After Aulis

by Rowena Cooper

18th - 21st July

Nia's found her true love, and it isn't her fiancé. Soon she's going to have to make a choice, and it's not the one you think.

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: she’s a sarcastic, self-obsessed adulterer, and she’s running away from her fiancé, mother, and disabled brother as fast as her stilettos allow.

It’s Phoebe Waller-Bridge’s 'Fleabag' meets ancient Greek tragedy… via Clapham Junction. Written by Rowena Cooper and performed by Emmeline Braefield, After Aulis has been described as “addictively enjoyable” with “Phenomenal writing and acting – it made me forget that it was only one person on stage!".

Adult language and themes.

The Mystery of Agatha Christie's Eleven Lost Days

Saturday 28th July

Agatha Christie was one of the greatest thriller writers of all time and certainly the most prolific. In 1926, she was at the centre of a mystery as perplexing as any of her fiction, a series of events which sparked one of the biggest and most extensive police hunts in history. Her crashed car was discovered in Surrey and the famous author was missing, presumed dead by many, for eleven days. However, she was eventually found at a luxury hotel in Harrogate. She claimed then, and for the rest of the life, that she was suffering from amnesia and remembered nothing. Neither the press nor the police believed her.

Actor Liz Grand (previous one-woman show ‘The Second Best Bed’) presents her new one-woman show ‘Where Is Mrs Christie?’ Did Agatha Christie lie, and if so why? Did she suffer from amnesia? Was it a publicity stunt? Or was there a darker secret involved in this disappearance which was to affect her for the rest of her life? The answer to all these questions will, as in all good thrillers, be revealed!
