Waiting for Godot

Waiting for Godot
written by Samuel Beckett
directed by Martyn Jolly

Act 1 - Two characters, wait endlessly and in vain for the arrival of Godot. During their wait they converse on everything and nothing. Pozzo and Lucky entertain them. A boy arrives and tells them Godot will not be coming today.

Act 2 - The next day. The same. But different.

This play has variously been described as "A play where nothing happens. Twice." and "The most significant play in the English language."

Becket's text is rich with themes of truth, consciousness, time and religion. A classic not to be missed.

Lights Out at Blake's Theatre

Lights Out at Blake's Theatre
devised and directed by members of Big Spirit Youth Theatre

What happens when a theatre faces closure? It's 1935 and Blake's Theatre in Hitchin is facing a lot of competition from the two new local cinemas. Things are not going well and the manager tries one last roll of the dice to keep the place open and mount a show that he hopes will work. His company of actors are presenting a dramatic version of the famous ghost story - The Turn of the Screw. The trouble is the place has been dogged by bad luck and tragic events and it feels like the whole venture is cursed. The manager is at his wit's end and so has asked you along. Can you help him save his theatre?

This is a promenade production with a difference. You are allowed to walk freely around the theatre so you discover some truly amazing and disturbing scenes. Then of course there is the bizarre cabaret in the bar at the end. All in all, it's a wonderfully different and creepy sort of evening.

Book early as ticket numbers are strictly limited!

[Please note this production takes place at the Queen Mother Theatre. Age advisement: 14+ years]

This is a promenade experience through the theatre.

Catherine has spent years caring for her brilliant but unstable father, a famous mathematician.

Now, on the eve of her 25th birthday, she must deal with her own volatile emotions; the arrival of her estranged sister; and the attentions of Hal, a former student of her father's who hopes to find valuable work amongst his notebooks.

Over the long weekend that follows, a burgeoning romance and the discovery of a mysterious notebook draw Catherine into the most difficult problem of all: how much of her father's madness - or genius - will she inherit?
