Angel

Warwick Arts Centre
University of Warwick, Coventry, CV4 7AL

Sun 12 Oct 2014

2pm

£10.95 (£7.95)

A story of unexpected friendship.

Angel is the story of Bill who returns an old woman’s shopping bag on an afternoon when she had nothing better to do and Bill finds her life is never the same again. The old woman, Miriam, lives between then and now.
She keeps her watch in the fridge, plays guns with bananas and has an imaginary dog called Satan. She may be losing her marbles, but she definitely isn’t losing her sense of humour.

When Bill, who is a girl by the way, realises that Miriam needs help she decides to sort things out – and if that means not going home, telling lies and kidnapping a man in order to mend the past, then that is what she will have to do.

This brilliantly funny and heart-warming new play about childhood and ageing is a fantastic piece of new writing for audiences aged 10 years and above.

Shortlisted for The Writer’s Guild of Great Britain, Best Play for Young Audiences 2012 and The Brian Way Award 2013.

“A play about the relationship between young and old, dealing with dementia and memory loss… angel is an unqualified success… this is children’s theatre at its best!” British Theatre Guide.

Something MONSTROUS is keeping Emily Brown awake…

Dragon) and Neal Layton.

One evening, Emily Brown and her old grey rabbit Stanley hear a Thing crying outside their window. He just can’t get to sleep. Emily Brown and Stanley set off on an incredible adventure to the Dark and Scary Wood and the Whirling Wastes and beyond to find the Thing’s cuddly, his bedtime milk and his medicine… But nothing seems to help him settle.

What’s really troubling the Thing – and will anyone ever get to sleep?

Private Peaceful

Warwick Arts Centre
University of Warwick, Coventry, CV4 7AL

Sun 26 Oct 2014

5pm

£14 (£12)

024 7652 4524

Commemorating the 100th anniversary of World War One, Private Peaceful relives the life of Private Tommo Peaceful, a young soldier awaiting the firing squad at dawn. During the night he looks back at his short but joyful past growing up in rural Devon: his exciting first days at school; the accident in the forest that killed his father; his adventures with Molly, the love of his life; and the battles and injustices of war that brought him to the front line.

Winner of the Blue Peter Book of the Year, Private Peaceful is by third Children’s Laureate, Michael Morpurgo. His inspiration came from a visit to Ypres where he was shocked to discover how many young soldiers were court-martialled and shot for cowardice during the First World War.

Adapted & directed by Simon Reade

“Private peaceful at the theatre is a moving experience that not only tells the story of a young soldier’s final day in World War One, but perhaps more importantly conveys the strength of human spirit” Michael Morpurgo

“An infinitely touching, intensely acted account of a young first world war soldier’s final day”.
★★★★★ Sunday Express.
