Blue Elephant Theatre Autumn Season to Dec 2013


The Blue Elephant Theatre, in Camberwell, south London has announced its autumn season which includes...

The Spanish Tragedy, a reimagined version of Thomas Kyd’s influential revenge tragedy, by Lazarus Theatre Company, 24 Sep to 19 Oct 2013. Directed by Ricky Dukes. Cast includes Maria Alexe, Safron Beck, Amy Bowden, George Clarke, Adam Cunis, Joseph Emms, Suzie Grimsdick, Tom McAdam, Roseanna Morris, James Peter-Bennett, Danny Solomon, Felicity Sparks, Jamie Spindlove, Stefan Stuart, Thomas Winsor. A haunted spirit returns to his homeland to wreak revenge on those responsible for his murder.

Crazy Glue, physical theatre piece by Single Shoe Productions, 22 to 26 Oct 2013. Inspired by Etgar Keret's short story, Crazy Glue is a work-in-progress devised by Filipa Tomas and Bradley Wayne Smith of Single Shoe Productions. A Husband. A Wife. A marriage in crisis. Fusing the languages of silent films and cartoons, Crazy Glue is a 'comic and moving' exploration of how far we will go to fix a relationship, even when it appears beyond repair. (Using only one table, two chairs and a single bottle of glue, the accomplished physical performers tell a tale of love and loss through gibberish and vocal sounds effects.)

So It Goes, created by Hannah Moss & David Ralfe for On the Run Theatre, 13 - 16 Nov 2013. Hannah’s father died of cancer when she was seventeen and in the seven years since, she hasn't talked about it much. Here she opens up, in a new show about memory, absence, bereavement...and how hard it is to talk about death.

Arabian Nights, an irreverent physical comedy by Hammer and Tongs Theatre, from 26 Nov to 14 Dec 2013. Directed by Jennifer Rose Lee. Hammer and Tongs Theatre tramples raucously through the far-flung fables of the Arabian Nights, thwarting the murderous intentions of a jilted King. Kings, princesses, the odd genie, more talking animals than you can shake a stick at and a flying horse all find their way into this 'madcap' physical comedy, played out by a 'rambunctious' ensemble and accompanied by live music.
