A young man, Alexis, is obsessed with idea of love levelling all ranks and social distinctions. To promote his beliefs, he invites the proprietor of J. W. Wells & Co., Family Sorcerers, to brew a love potion. This causes everyone in the village to fall in love with the first person they see and results in the pairing of comically mismatched couples. In the end, Wells must sacrifice his life to break the spell.

Booking office 01254 685 500 - open 10am - 12:30pm MONDAY to SATURDAY. Click here for a list of shows available for online booking.

HUMBLE BOY - BLACKBURN DRAMA CLUB

Humble Boy is a play inspired by Hamlet. “Charlotte Jones knows her Stoppard, her Hamlet, her Ayckbourn, and among other things perhaps the fourth book of Virgil's "Georgics" on the subject of Aristaeus's bees.”[1]

Charlotte Jones draws upon techniques of Tom Stoppard in applying multiple layers of what seems to be random events, people, movement, and philosophies. Jones, “offers a play with inklings of the aforementioned Hamlet, bees, horticulture, theoretical physics (specifically, super string theory), anosmeia, swing music, and the elusiveness as well as the playfulness of language.” [3]

Thoughts of playwright Alan Ayckbourn are also apparent in Jones’ work. “Set entirely outdoors in the Humbles' garden (Ayckbourn territory), we witness the Humbles' domestic struggle (definitely Ayckbourn here), Felix's confrontation with his past, and his own mental difficulties in maintaining his familial and professional responsibilities.” [4]

LADIES DAY - BLACKBURN DRAMA CLUB

The temporary relocation of Royal Ascot to York last year was a memorable event. Local residents who had to struggle with the chaotic traffic conditions it caused will certainly never forget it, nor will the taxi drivers who just for once had a good excuse to avoid the city centre and take their unsuspecting passengers on an expensive detour! But one person's nightmare is another person's dream come true, especially if that person is of the female persuasion and needs an excuse to wear an eye-boggling hat.

This revival of Amanda Whittington's highly entertaining play, is the story of four fish factory workers - Pearl (Annie Sawle), Shelley (Jemma Walker), Linda (Lucy Beaumont) and Jan (Sue McCormick). Pearl is leaving to spend more time with her husband - not retiring, as she is keen to point out - and on the spur of the moment she decides to celebrate with an all-girls outing to Ladies' Day at York. After years of fish-filleting the pals are ready for a spot of filly-fancying, but is Royal Ascot ready for them?

The first difficulty they face is the most obvious one - obtaining tickets for an event which has been sold-out for months. Horrified by the prices asked by a ticket tout (Martin Barrass, who pops up in every male role), the foursome are on the verge of settling for a pub lunch instead. But a lucky find by Linda, a shy young woman with an all-consuming passion for Tony Christie, enables them to rub shoulders - however briefly - with high society.

Whilst brassy would-be star Shelley misses no opportunity to mug for the TV cameras and go hunting for rich men, the naive Jan is astonished when Pearl makes a confession to her - for years she has had a lover, a bookie who didn't turn up for their last rendezvous. No wonder Pearl was so keen to attend Ladies Day and is so knowledgeable about the Tote…

DRACULA - Ribcaged Productions

Dracula

Passion. Revenge. It’s in the blood. 

A modern adaptation of Bram Stoker’s classic novel adapted and directed by Owen Phillips. This fast paced, exciting physical theatre piece is the re-imagining of a modern day Dracula and will keep you on the edge of your seat.  

Synopsis- Sent by his firm on business to Eastern Europe, as his first property deal, had not been what Jonathan Harker had been expecting. Nevertheless, intrigued to meet his client introduced only as ‘The Count’, Harker decides a short break from his fiancé Mina would be no great hardship. After all what’s the worst that could happen? Yet ‘The Count’s’ seductive calm and controlled exterior hides his insatiable lust for power and greed. After becoming his prisoner – Harker must escape back to England to protect Mina, yet finds her changed – not the sweet girl he left but finds her increasing more and more like his sadistic captor. The drug fuelled, debauched, horror that had befallen him, will haunt Harker for the rest of his days and lead to the murder of his once friend- Dracula.

Premise – Ribcaged’s version of Dracula is compelling physical theatre with a gripping story. In the present day, Dracula is presented as a drug dealer, consumed with selling his mansion and moving to England. The story revolves around Harker’s hatred for the seductive lifestyle Dracula provides whilst away from home. In his drug fuelled ramblings he becomes convinced that Dracula is possessed, a vampire – preying upon his victims with a desire to draw their blood. After Mina’s sudden death, Harker hunts ‘The Count’, accompanied by religious preacher and zealot, Van Helsing, determined to have his revenge. Their fight till the death leaves the audience questioning the truth of Harker’s accusations and the depths of Dracula’s evil.
