Oct 6th - Skylight (by David Hare) directed by Alan Brodie
Skylight is about both the state of the heart and the state of the nation. Kyra used to work for, and sleep with, Tom, a successful restaurateur. But when his wife discovered the affair, Kyra left and they haven't seen each other for more than 20 years. Tom, now a widower and adrift, turns up at her flat in hopes of succour, salvation, turning back time's pitiless clock hands.
Nov 24th - The Realistic Joneses (by Will Eno)
InThe Realistic Joneses, we meet Bob and Jennifer and their new neighbours, John and Pony, two suburban couples who have even more in common than their identical homes and their shared last names. As their relationships begin to irrevocably intertwine, the Joneses must decide between their idyllic fantasies and their imperfect realities.
Feb 23rd - Age of Arousal (by Linda Griffiths)
London, 1885 a time of great passion, great confusion virtue is barely holding down its petticoats. People are bursting their corsets with unbridled desire. Mary, a charismatic ex-suffragette in her 60s, runs a school for secretaries, aided by her zealous teacher-lover, 30-something Rhoda. When Rhoda literally bumps into childhood friend Virginia on the street one day, she finds that Virginia, her sister Alice, and their much younger sister, Monica, are living in poverty. They are all invited into the school for secretaries, even though the older sisters are deliciously inept at the keys, and Monica is more interested in sexual revolution than a career in business.
April 26th - Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf (by Edward Albee)
History professor George and his boozy wife, Martha, return late one Saturday night from a cocktail party at the home of the college president, Martha's father. Martha announces that she invited another couple, newly appointed instructor Nick and his timid wife, Honey, over for a nightcap. When the younger couple arrive, the night erupts into a no-holds-barred torrent of marital angst and verbal tirades.
