HARLEQUINADE

By Terence Rattigan

24 October 2015 - 13 January 2016

In this rarely seen comic gem, a classical theatre company attempts to produce The Winter's Tale and Romeo and Juliet, while the intrigues and dalliances of the company members are accidently revealed with increasingly chaotic and hysterical consequences.

The behind-the-scenes world takes centre stage in Terence Rattigan's affectionate celebration of the lunatic art of putting on a play.

Kenneth Branagh will be joined by Zo Wanamaker and will co-direct with Rob Ashford.

ZO WANAMAKER WILL PERFORM RATTIGAN'S ONE-WOMAN PLAY, ALL ON HER OWN, PRIOR TO HARLEQUINADE EACH NIGHT, AS PART OF A NEVER-BEFORE-SEEN DOUBLE BILL.

ALL ON HER OWN

by TERENCE RATTIGAN

Cast includes ZO WANAMAKER

In this brief but powerfully atmospheric play, a woman with a secret, alone at midnight in London has a burden to share that is at times both heart-breaking and sinister. This never-before-seen double bill celebrates the contrast in Rattigan's astonishing range.

Since you’re here…

… we have a small favour to ask. We don't want your money to support a hack's bar bill at Abattoir, but if you have a pound or two spare, we really encourage you to support a good cause. If this review has either helped you discover a gem or avoid a turkey, consider doing some good that will really make a difference.

You can donate to the charity of your choice, but if you're looking for inspiration, there are three charities we really like.

Mama Biashara
Kate Copstick’s charity, Mama Biashara, works with the poorest and most marginalised people in Kenya. They give grants to set up small, sustainable businesses that bring financial independence and security. That five quid you spend on a large glass of House White? They can save someone’s life with that. And the money for a pair of Air Jordans? Will take four women and their fifteen children away from a man who is raping them and into a new life with a moneymaking business for Mum and happiness for the kids.

Theatre MAD
The Make A Difference Trust fights HIV & AIDS one stage at a time. Their UK and International grant-making strategy is based on five criteria that raise awareness, educate, and provide care and support for the most vulnerable in society. A host of fundraising events, including Bucket Collections, Late Night Cabarets, West End Eurovision, West End Bares and A West End Christmas continue to raise funds for projects both in the UK and Sub-Saharan Africa.
