Stahl Theatre productions return to Oundle for the new season today (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 Guvnors by 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.
