Back to Back
Two new short plays
Fresh from sell out previews of FlickBook at Theatre503 and Etcetera Theatre, Poleroid Theatre returns with a week of back to back re-worked new writing at the White Bear Theatre!

Kill the Voices
A Brief but vivid glance in to the psyche of a man who is tortured by desire.  Inspired by true events, Kill the Voices privides a dramatic and imaginative insight into the thoughts and dreams of people who are at war with themselves.

FlickBook 2012
Are you happy?
What, like right now?
Yes, now.

A darkly comic, fast paced 60 minutes of new writing exploring the individuals and their relationships in today's society.  Brief, vivid, colourful hits of contrasting life. Pockets of life: like pegging up a series of Polaroids or flicking through a flickbook.
"The play was genuinely involving and credible in its exploration
of love, loss, sacrifice and self-maintained suffering." - The Good Review about FlickBook
"I think we're going to see great things from Poleroid Theatre" - Bargain Theatre

“Ribticklers”: An Evening of Vintage Comedy

“Ribticklers”: An Evening of Vintage Comedy

“Ribticklers”: An Evening of Vintage Comedy

Thu 15 Dec 2011 @ 19:30 · Events



After mining the archives of  TV, radio, film and music hall, journalist and writer Terry Sanderson introduces comedy geniuses of the past, with comedy gems from both sides of the Atlantic that are still sparkling and laugh-out-loud hilarious – from Laurel & Hardy, Pete & Dud, The Three Stooges, Lucille Ball, The Marx Brothers, W.C. Fields, Norman Evans, Sandy Powell, Gracie Fields, Bob & Ray, Max Wall and many more.


Terry Sanderson says: “Not all comedy stands the test of time and sometimes we look back on things that made us laugh years ago and now find it embarrassingly unfunny. I have only included those sketches, stand-up routines, film clips and TV excerpts that prompted a real belly laugh when I saw them. There is something for everyone, from sketches and slapstick to surrealism, stand-up and silliness. It’s all innocent fun, and its sole purpose is to wring guffaws of delight from the audience…”
A Christmas treat for all the family – full of guaranteed laughs!

Doors open 18.30 for a 19.30 start, and the event is expected to end at 22.30. Seasonal refreshments will be available.

Tickets & Pricing

Autumn Season 2011 ticketing applies.


Young Vic Recruiting for Community Chorus !!

Dear Two Borough Member,

My name is Samantha Nurse, I am introducing myself as the new Two Boroughs Project Manager.  I have taken over the post from Kirstin Shirling whom you may have had contact with in the past.  I wanted to introduce myself and to also let you know of a great opportunity here at the Young Vic Theatre !

This coming spring, the Young Vic is producing the first ever stage version of Jung Chan’s Wild Swans.

We are recruiting two, alternate community choruses to join our professional cast on stage each night; we are looking for people of Chinese and East Asian heritage to be part of this once in a lifetime opportunity.

I am hoping that you might be interested or willing to pass on the information about this performance opportunity to those you know might be interested? We would love to meet you and speak with you about this project if you should require further information. Attached is a pdf version of the chorus information flyer, I have an html version that can be directly forwarded on to people that I can also email over to you.

Potential chorus members do not need any experience of performing, they just need to be interested in being in the show, 18 years or over and be able to commit to the rehearsal and performance schedule. We will be holding fun and friendly workshop auditions on the evenings of Thursday 5 and Friday 6 January 2012.  The rehearsals will then take place in January and March/April and performances will take place during the weeks of 16, 23, 30 April and 7 May 2012.

I hope you may be able to spread the word or know someone of Chinese or East Asian heritage who may take advantage of this unique opportunity and hope to see you here on the stage of the Young Vic Theatre !  Please call Marcella Hughes on 0207 922 2845 or email wildswans@youngvic.org if you require further information or to book a fun workshop audition !

Look forward to meeting you in the future,
Samantha Nurse
Two Boroughs Project Manager

Tesco bus to be cancelled - again

Dear Neighbours

As at this time last year,
Tesco have apparently decided to cancel the free bus service that so many of us -
particularly the elderly and disabled - rely on.

Please write to

Philip Clarke
Chief Executive
Tesco

philip.clarke@uk.tesco.com
asking him to have the decision reversed for good.

Very many thanks
Best wishes
