White Bear Theatre: KA Offer: Four new plays by emerging young writers

“Fringe Theatre at its best” – Guardian ««««

Support the Multi-Award Winning White Bear Theatre
(and save money) by seeing:

Rosebery Repertory
present
Four new plays by emerging young writers.

Presented as two double-bills, the season kicks off with Evidence by Richard Hurst: Five Scene of Crime Officers struggle with the stresses of their job and the strains of working with each other.  Hurst co-writes BBC’s Miranda and has written for ITV2’s Secret Diary of a Call Girl. He co-wrote and directed the BAFTA and Olivier-–nominated stage show Potted Potter, as well as the award-winning show Bill Hicks: Slight Return.

This show is paired with COUP by Elinor Perry-Smith: in a dystopian republic of Britain, the old King has been usurped by a younger warrior... what will this mean for his beloved seamstress? Both these plays are directed by Will Sherriff-Hammond who has worked with National Theatre Connections, and the Soho Theatre.

The second double-bill features Powerplay by Jon Barton: in this disturbing piece, a young woman's actions cause huge consequences inside a Government Intelligence Agency.  Barton is a graduate of the Royal Court Young Writers’ Programme. He is currently being produced by Hightide for the 2012 Festival, and at Theatre 503 for the Rapid Write Rewind season.

This piece plays alongside Click by Mike Carter: a diverse cast of characters seek friendship - and more - on the internet.  Both of these shows are directed by Jamie Harper former Associate Director Rose Theatre Kingston, Resident Director English Touring Theatre, and National Theatre Studio.  Rosebery Repertory is a new actor-led production company established to explore new writing and provide opportunities for upcoming or unheralded creative talent.

June Saturday Openings for Roots and Shoots Shop

June Saturday Openings for Roots and Shoots Shop

Lambeth gardeners - help is at hand!  Roots and Shoots’ garden shop is having some special Saturday openings in June to sell all kinds of gardening sundries from seed trays, trowels, hessian sacks and secateurs to raffia, organic compost and Carbon Gold’s much praised Gro Char. Unusual gifts include individually designed beanbag frogs made by House of Commons volunteers and Moa, the fantastic healing balm, great for gardening scrapes and stings, as well as a facial cleanser.

There will also be plant sales of the special and unusual plants which thrive in Roots and Shoots’ Lambeth microclimate - some of the plants showcased at Chelsea Flower Show on the Silver Medal winning Architecture Sans Frontières exhibit were grown here. Expect to find lots of things you wouldn’t pick up at a garden centre, all of which have been tended by the young horticultural students at this award winning educational and environmental charity.

The shop was recently reopened by the charity’s patron, Kate Hoey.  Situated within the eco training centre, it is a practical part of the retail students’ training and they are involved in merchandising, display, sales and customer service.

Roots and Shoots’ garden shop in Walnut Tree Walk, Kennington, London SE11 6DN will be open on 9, 16 and 23 June between 10am and 2pm. More information at www.rootsandshoots.org.uk and www.facebook.com
