Mikado Banner

Set in the topsy-turvy Japanese town of Titipu, 'The Mikado' combines biting social commentary with dark gallows humour to tell the story of Nanki-Poo, the son of the Mikado who disguises himself as a wandering minstrel in order to escape the romantic attentions of the elderly Katisha. In his travels he encounters and falls in love with the lovely Yum-Yum, one of three little maids who are the wards of Ko-Ko, the town executioner. Ko-Ko is engaged to Yum-Yum himself,…

Gawain

New Year's Day 2050, Compound Camelot.

Losters

Set on a London estate, The Losters Play deals with the fallout of a group of youth's being mailed a corpse. What follows involves Polish drug dealers, embalming with anti-freeze and Kesha.

Figaro

<< Le Mariage de Figaro >> was performed in 1784 for the first time. The play was censored for many years, and this already hints at its revolutionary and insolent dimension. This sequel of sorts to "The Barber of Sevilla" mainly revolves around this question: will Figaro and Suzanne manage to get married and circumvent the Count’s lustful « droit du seigneur »? It is a witty, enjoyable and vibrant play: plots intertwine, characters drop their masks, and the feudal order of…

Prep

It’s quite a lot of work to cater for a wedding. Especially when it’s three friends in a kitchen and they’re eating more of the food than they’re sending out. Mostly kitchen-bound and wound up, Marcie, Eva and Rose chortle their way through a wedding of people who they don’t know and couldn’t really care less about. The bride looks like a standing lamp, but Eva’s brought a bag of bourbons with her so the day’s going to be fine.…

Vanessa

The Brickhouse Theatre Company presents Samuel Barber's lush, gothic opera Vanessa. First performed in 1958, this expansive work won Barber the Pulitzer prize, but has since been under-performed. Director Judith Lebiez brings Vanessa to life in its first Cambridge presentation. In the words of Barber's partner, and librettist, Giancarlo Menotti: "This is the story of two women, Vanessa and Erika, caught in the central dilemma which faces every human being: whether to fight for one's ideals to the point of…
