After You Get What You Want

by Emily Hutt

Wandering Star Theatre Company presents After You Get What You Want, a new play written and directed by Emily Hutt.

Three famous Hollywood movie starlets: Clara Bow - the ‘It Girl’ of the 1920’s; Jean Harlow - loved in the 1930’s as the original Blonde Bombshell and - most famous of all, the tragic and beautiful - Marilyn Monroe, who dominated the box office in the 1950’s; come together in an alternate world where they have developed a caring friendship.

Not always heard or understood in their time, we now hear stories of their past and witness as they come to terms with their lives and losses. Throughout the play they share their stories with each other and the audience as we discover that they were connected long before their deaths.

Sex in the Seventies

Wednesday 9th to Saturday 12th August

LUNCH: Wednesday to Friday - 12.30pm
SUPPER: Friday and Saturday - 8pm

Sex in the Seventies

Written by Linda Waller and Andrew G. Marshall

Directed by Linda Waller

It is 1977. Eighteen-year-old, first year university students, Robbie and Louise fall head-over-heels in love over a shared passion for music, movies and trashy TV. Kate Bush and The Sex Pistols are in the charts. Starsky and Hutch and Are You Being Served are on the telly. It should be a match made in heaven but their friends are bent on sabotaging the fledging relationship and conflict between Robbie’s middle-class English parents and Louise’s noisy, extended, Irish Catholic family don’t help the situation.

Sex In The Seventies is based around the idea that dating before the advent of mobile phones, texting and email was a very different ballgame. Since today’s swift communiques are out of the question, their turbulent relationship is conducted via a series of notes, cards and love letters. Set against a soundtrack of punk, disco and glam rock the two soul mates struggle to stay together, but unbeknown to Louise, Robbie has a teeny-weeny secret.

Re-live your memories of the decade that taste forgot or discover what it was really like to be young in the 1970s.

Starring Alison Oliver and Aaron O'Neill.

"Great, witty writing and direction."

“Brought to life in such a vivid manner you find yourself riding and reliving the emotional rollercoaster of first love. You will find yourself celebrating your memories or thanking the heavens you’re no longer back in the Seventies healing your first broken heart.” - Brighton Evening Argus

“Very funny, very clever and very moreish.”
- Seven (Listings magazine), Brighton

Bedbound

Wednesday 16th to Saturday 19th August

LUNCH: Wednesday to Friday - 12.30pm
SUPPER: Friday and Saturday - 8pm

Bedbound

by Enda Walsh

“I’ve got nothing to talk to you about.”
“We’re talking now.”
“Yeah, but about nothing.”
“It’s filling the gaps, isn’t it?”
“It’s making the gaps. If we didn’t talk there would be no gaps.”

A Father and a Daughter share a small bed. He talks frantically about his extraordinary past in furniture sales; she talks no less compulsively about anything at all, to fill the terrible silence in her head. Everything is frantic, broken and ugly because they can’t stop talking. If only they could stop and sleep.

‘A play unlike any other I have seen. Enda Walsh’s vision of wounded humanity... has a precision that is entirely his own... an uncomfortable, unforgettable tour-de-force’ - Daily Telegraph

‘holds the attention magnetically... Not for the squeamish or the faint at heart’ - Irish Times

Presented by Tangled Stars Theatre Company.
Directed by Jamie Feehily.
