Balmoral

Michael Frayn

Though Balmoral was written in the late 80s, Michael Frayn sets this farcical play in 1937, where he imagines the events of a Britain that experienced its own Russian-style revolution in 1917. 

 

Balmoral sees the Royal Family’s Scottish estate transformed into a writer’s commune where the warden is unable to resume control of the residents. When a government inspector is rumoured to be visiting, chaos breaks out amongst writers including Hugh Walpole, Godfrey Winn and Enid Blyton.

Michael Frayn

Michael Frayn’s ninth play is set in the 60s and focuses on the destructive friendship between two middle-class couples. 

 

Architect David has been commissioned to redevelop a rundown area in the south of London at the same time as he and his wife Jane attempt to rescue the marriage of their neighbours: the cynical Colin and submissive Sheila.

Blood Wedding

Federico García Lorca
Often dubbed part of Lorca's Rural Trilogy, Blood Wedding is a deeply cynical and confrontational piece of theatre. The Mother, The Bride, The Beggar Woman, The Neighbour, The Maid and The Moon - the characters in Federico Garcia Lorca's story operate as the largely nameless vehicles driving forward the play's themes of fate, betrayal, choice and consequence, towards an inevitably tragic conclusion.
