New and ex­cit­ing work on show at Stahl

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Stage -

Stahl The­atre pro­duc­tions re­turn to Oundle for the new sea­son to­mor­row (Fri­day) in­tro­duc­ing the com­mu­nity to new and ex­cit­ing work, whilst cul­ti­vat­ing ex­ist­ing re­la­tion­ships with well-re­spected tour­ing the­atre com­pa­nies from all over the coun­try.

Direc­tor Naomi Jones com­mented:“I am de­lighted that in my fourth sea­son here at the Stahl, we will see the re­turn of the hugely im­pres­sive Black­eyed The­atre com­pany whilst em­brac­ing the new with mime from The­atre Re. The school sea­son looks sim­i­larly strong get­ting off to a fine start with a pro­duc­tion of ‘One Man, Two Gu­vnors’.

Kick­ing off the sea­son is Blind Man’s Song, con­ceived and di­rected by Guil­laume Pigé and per­formed by The­atre Re with orig­i­nal mu­sic from Alex Judd.

Fol­low­ing sell-out runs at the 2015 Lon­don In­ter­na­tional Mime Fes­ti­val, Lat­i­tude and the Ed­in­burgh Fringe, crit­i­cally ac­claimed The­atre Re presents a word­less tale about the power of imag­i­na­tion, blend­ing phys­i­cal the­atre, mime, il­lu­sions and a live mu­si­cal score. While a blind man walks around his room with un­steady steps, a story of love, hope, courage and un­quench­able vi­sion un­folds.

One Man, Two Gu­vnorsBy Richard Bean (based on The Ser­vant of Two Masters by Carlo Goldoni) is di­rected by An­thony Orr and can be seen on Oc­to­ber 6 and 7th at 7.45pm. Tick­ets £6

Fran­cis Hen­shall is try­ing to jug­gle two jobs at once. One of his new gu­vnors, Roscoe Crabbe, is re­ally his twin sis­ter Rachel pos­ing as her dead brother to col­lect a £6,000 debt. His other gu­vnor killed Roscoe in a knife fight, but is in love with Rachel. Lost?

And on Oc­to­ber 13, see Black­eyed The­atre’s Franken­stein by Mary Shel­ley, adapted by John Gin­man and di­rected by Eliot Gi­u­ralarocca.

It’s a brand new adap­ta­tion of the gothic hor­ror masterpiece fus­ing en­sem­ble sto­ry­telling, live mu­sic and stun­ning the­atri­cal­ity. From the artis­tic team be­hind Black­eyed The­atre’s hugely suc­cess­ful Drac­ula.

One Man, Two Gu­vnors and Franken­stein, both com­ing to the Stahl The­atre.
