Finborough Theatre announce June to Sep Season 2010
The Finborough Theatre, a fringe venue in Earl's Court, west London has announced its June to September 2010 Season that includes the following...
MISS LILLY GETS BONED OR THE LOSS OF ALL ELEPHANT ELDERS , by Bekah Brunstetter, from 22 June to 10 July 2010. Directed by Lily Bevan, produced with Osip Theatre. Miss Lilly, a Sunday school teacher, has been waiting patiently for God to drop a man in her lap. When a new student – a young South African boy whose mother was killed by an elephant – disturbs the harmony of her classroom and his father disturbs the harmony of her heart, Miss Lilly is forced to re-examine her own sense of faith and self.
LINGUA FRANCA, by Peter Nichols, from 13 July to 7 Aug 2010. Directed by Michael Gieleta, produced with Cherub Company London. Lingua Franca follows innocent abroad, Steven Flowers, as he travels from National Service in South-East Asia to 1950's Florence. He soon finds himself working for a chaotically-run language school, together with a cosmopolitan muddle of seven foreign misfits killing their post-war nihilism in the cafés of Florence, the cradle of Renaissance high culture. Based around a leading character in Peter Nichols’ work Privates on Parade, and inspired by his own experiences, Lingua Franca is a sexually-charged story, and both a damning indictment and a celebration of sexual freedom.
THE DRAWER BOY, by Michael Healey, from 10 Aug to 4 Sep 2010. Directed by Eleanor Rhode, produced with Snapdragon. Miles, an energetic and idealistic young actor, knocks on the door of an isolated farmhouse in rural Canada, seeking material for a new play he’s working on. He discovers Morgan, a gruff farmer working tooth and nail to survive, and Angus, his lifelong friend, who has long since lost track of the world. But when the farmers let the city-boy into their home, Miles’ search for a story gradually unearths a devastating truth that threatens to destroy the tranquil lives of his hosts forever. UPDATED 6 APRIL: due to the sudden indisposition of actor Kenneth Bryans - the production of The Drawer Boy has been cancelled
