Stephen Joseph Theatre Company, Scarborough in association with Guildford’s Yvonne Arnaud Theatre present Roundelay Written & directed by Alan Ayckbourn WORLD PREMIERE Roundelay is a unique adventure in live theatre; a total of five interconnected situations written to be played in no particular order. Some scenes are connected through shared characters, some through overlapping narrative. Some are sequels to others which turn out to be preludes to others. Can Sir Thomas trust his memories? Is there more to Blanche than meets the eye? Will Roz achieve her show business ambitions? …and just what sort of agency does Gale run? Join us to witness the skeleton in the politician’s cupboard and discover Russ’s first love. Which order will you see? No-one, including the actors, will know until 25 minutes before the play begins… and there are 120 possible combinations. Barham Down (trad.), arrangement copyright (p) 1983 Bare Necessities, B.M.I.

"The Book" @thesjt @FlyingCloudT

Flying Cloud presents The Book Written and directed by Leandra Ashton 27 June - 28 June Three incredible journeys, one amazing book. A new play by Yorkshire-based theatre company Flying Cloud, who are known for new writing, movement, live music and projections. The Book invites you on an intrepid journey of friendship, identity and possibility. A beautiful idea is captured in a book but its interpretation has a journey that goes, dangerously beyond the author's imaginings. Across centuries the lives of three characters intertwine through the life of the book. The survival of the book both challenges their courage and questions their identity. Their actions unknowingly alter not only their own path but the course of world history. In a world of divisive ideas what unites everyone's story?
