Habeas Corpus

by Alan Bennett

4th – 7th October 2017

Habeas Corpus, Alan Bennett’s first play, is a comedy set in Brighton in the 1960s. Here the lust and longing of the permissive society has well and truly taken hold of the apparently respectable Wicksteed family. With a succession of characters ranging from a rampant doctor and a randy vicar to a frustrated flat-chested spinster and a baffled domestic cleaner, this rollicking farce is as saucy and English as a seaside postcard…

My Fair Lady

Musical by Lerner and Loewe

23rd – 28th April 2018

My Fair Lady is a beautiful musical about transformation, patronage, gender politics and class, based on George Bernard Shaw’s play, Pygmalion. Acclaimed Professor and confirmed bachelor Henry Higgins makes a wager with his linguistic colleague Colonel Pickering that in six months he can pass off “gutter snipe” Eliza Doolittle as a duchess at an embassy ball. Through arduous training, day and night, Eliza learns how to speak English “properly,” and transforms into a lady respected and adored by all classes. Along the way she bewitches young Freddy Einsford-Hill into falling in love with her, and convinces a supposed linguistics expert that she is royalty. Through her transformation process, Eliza forges a deep connection with Colonel Pickering and most especially with Professor Higgins. However, she finds herself in a difficult position, now too refined to go back to her old life and not with any means or desire to live life as a lady of leisure – especially by herself. When Higgins completely fails to acknowledge Eliza’s role in her own transformation, she leaves his home. It is only then that Higgins realizes that he cares deeply for Eliza. The play ends with Eliza’s return to Higgins’ home, and the ending is left ambiguous, yet it is beloved for being both one of the cleverest and one of the most romantic plays of all time.
