The Mill on the Floss - Bristol Old Vic Theatre School

The Mill on the Floss - Bristol Old Vic Theatre School

Presented by Bristol Old Vic Theatre School


By George Eliot

Adapted by Helen Edmundson

Directed by Paul Clarkson

WEST COUNTRY TOUR 2018


“They had entered the thorny wilderness, and the golden gates of their childhood had for ever closed behind them.”


In this fluid and visceral re-imagining, Helen Edmundson (Queen Anne, Coram Boy, The Heresy of Love) turns George Eliot's unforgettable story of first love, sibling rivalry and regret into a wonderfully theatrical examination of the psyche of one of classic literature’s most charismatic heroines.


Brought up at Dorlcote Mill, Maggie Tulliver worships her brother Tom and is desperate to win the approval of her parents, but her passionate, wayward nature and her fierce intelligence bring her into constant conflict with her family.


As she reaches adulthood, the clash between their expectations and her desires is painfully played out as she finds herself torn between her relationships with three very different men: her proud and stubborn brother Tom; hunchbacked Phillip Wakem, the son of her family's worst enemy; and the charismatic yet dangerous Stephen Guest.


With its poignant portrayal of sibling relationships, The Mill on the Floss is considered George Eliot's most autobiographical novel and here Edmundson loses none of its breadth, whilst beautifully examining the complex nature of relationships and love.  


‘With rare theatrical vibrancy, Helen Edmundson’s free adaptation distils the essence of George Eliot’s feminist novel’ – Evening Standard


‘…not only re-invents the novel, but pushes the boat out theatrically way beyond its usual mooring' - The Guardian


‘An intensely moving dramatisation – stylised, but free of empty theatrics’. - The Times


Opened in 1946 by Laurence Olivier, the Bristol Old Vic Theatre School has grown a reputation for attracting the very best in young acting talent and has some notable alumni to its name including Daniel Day Lewis, Greta Scacchi, Peter O’Toole, Olivia Colman and many more. The annual West Country tour gives you a chance to see the stars of tomorrow, on stage today!

When the plan backfires and Felix grows even more despondent, his friendship with Oscar is put to the test.

Besides engaging the brain and stimulating emotions, being part of an audience enjoying a film helps people with dementia and their carers to feel less isolated and also challenges the stigma associated with the condition.


Whilst promoted as a dementia friendly screening, it is open to anyone who loves the old films and wants to come along for an afternoon of fond memories.

Everybody’s Talking About Jamie

The award-winning west-end musical sensation. A ‘delayed screening’ of the live satellite broadcast.


Written by DAN GILLESPIE SELLS and TOM MACRAE

From an idea by JONATHAN BUTTERELL


Inspired by a true story, Everybody’s Talking About Jamie is the new award-winning five-star hit musical for today.

With ‘songs that have the wow factor’ (The Times) by lead singer-songwriter of The Feeling, Dan Gillespie Sells, and ‘hilarious’ book and lyrics ‘with delightful punch’ (Whatsonstage), by writer Tom MacRae, this funny, fabulous, feel-good, musical sensation has been thrilling audiences and critics alike.



Winner of 3 WhatsOnStage Awards including Best New Musical and nominated for 5 Olivier Awards, Everybody’s Talking About Jamie will be broadcast live from the Apollo Theatre in London’s Shaftesbury Avenue to cinemas nationwide.

Through the Decades with Roy Orbison & Buddy Holly

**Postponed due to unforseen circumstances. The show is rescheduled for Friday 8th February 2019. Please contact the box office for a refund**


Roy Orbison and Buddy Holly both grew up in the same part of Texas. They recorded their earlier work in the Norman Petty Studios in Clovis, New Mexico, even at one point recording the same songs ‘An empty cup’ (and a broken date) as well as ‘You’ve Got Love’ both written by Roy Orbison.


The two Artists brought a unique Texas influence into their music and through their creative writing for both an individual sound was born!

Roy Orbison went on to write so many songs including ‘Only the Lonely’ & ‘Crying’. Buddy Holly in his short Career showed his writing talents, which earned him a place (13th) in ‘The Rolling Stone’ ‘100 Greatest Artist of all Time’!


Darren Page teams up with Marc Robinson who both have careers dedicated to Roy Orbison and Buddy Holly, performing all over Great Britain and around the world, they have come together to bring you a two hour uplifting show, that will entertain you with pure nostalgia with all their hits, and few earlier ones too!

The Magic Garden

The Magic Garden

Written and performed by Mark and Marie Cassidy


The teddy bears are going to have a picnic in the Magic Garden under the shade of a magic tree, which is home to fairies and some adorable woodland creatures. The children in the audience agree to keep watch to keep it safe but a knotted handkerchief reminds Mr. Forget-me-not to cut down the tree so they can all stay longer in the sunshine. Luckily Auntie Mimi has a plan and, with the help of some woodland creatures and the children, they prevent a disaster to an invisible fairy world which only they can see.


This is an interactive, multi-sensory show with puppets and music, which is sure to delight the whole family, from babies to grandparents, but especially suited to children aged 2 to 6 years. The show lasts one hour and the children will be spellbound as the garden beautifully reveals its mystery.


In 2017 Boo to a Goose Theatre received Arts Council funding to tour this show across Devon libraries. As a result, the show was chosen as an example of the best Arts Council funded family activities in the UK #NationalLotteryDays: Ten Great Days Out.


What our audiences say:


'We'd love you to come back.'

'Brilliant! Very hard to please 4 year old was transfixed!'

‘Cannot recommend this company enough. They kept 30 children aged from 2 to 7 years entertained for an hour - the kids loved it.’

'All the children were completely engaged'

'I don't know how you do it - it's magic.'

'Beautiful.'

'The babies just loved watching the little animals and butterflies.'

NT Live: King Lear (12A)

NT Live: King Lear

National Theatre Live Cinema Screening

King Lear

By William Shakespeare

Director: Ian McKellen


★★★★★ ‘Ian McKellen reigns supreme in this triumphant production.’ (Daily Telegraph)


Broadcast live from London’s West End, see Ian McKellen’s ‘extraordinarily moving portrayal’ (Independent) of King Lear in cinemas.


Chichester Festival Theatre’s production received five-star reviews for its sell-out run, and transfers to the West End for a limited season.  Jonathan Munby directs this ‘nuanced and powerful’ (The Times) contemporary retelling of Shakespeare’s tender, violent, moving and shocking play.


Considered by many to be the greatest tragedy ever written, King Lear sees two ageing fathers – one a King, one his courtier – reject the children who truly love them.  Their blindness unleashes a tornado of pitiless ambition and treachery, as family and state are plunged into a violent power struggle with bitter ends.


Tickets: Adult £15.30 / Student £12.30 (includes a booking charge of 30p)

Ferocious Dog + support

Ferocious Dog + support

"Ferocious Dog are the new noise on the block – and are surprising everyone with their rapid ascent. There is no way they’re following any hipster templates – fronted by a big burly man with a mohican who sings impassioned political songs of broken Britain whilst his band seethes like a punky Levellers – they are the music business’s worst nightmare – a great band who are going to make it without anyone’s permission”. (John Robb, Louder Than War, Glastonbury, 5th July 2016).


Ferocious Dog's 3rd studio album, The Red Album, was released in November 2017 to rave reviews. The Enemy Within tour will feature tunes from this album as well as old favourites from previous releases.


2016 was a defining year for Ferocious Dog. From playing Billy Bragg’s Left Field stage at Glastonbury in front of a massive crowd, to sharing the stage with The Levellers on their sold out European and UK tour in November and December and many sold out shows in-between. Ferocious Dog left the audience under no doubt that they had witnessed a band that has the talent and passion to go on to dominate the folk/punk music scene.


With European and UK tours completed, and slots at some of the UK’s and European favourite festivals, 2017 was another exciting year so far in the ascent of this exceptional band.


Ferocious Dog offer a full-on six-piece sound that encompasses folk infused with rock, reggae and Celtic vibrations. The combination of instruments creates a palette of sound that offers infinite variations: going in hard to get the audience up and moving, or slipping into melodic passages and dub-like fusions. The songs are deeply personal and their fans can really identify with the words. Dan Booth, on fiddle, and John Leonard, playing just about everything with strings, bring a huge amount of intricacy to the breakneck pace of their songs. Les Carter (ex Carter USM) on guitar and the rhythm section of Alex Smith and John Alexander hold things together brilliantly, and with Ken Bonsall’s lyrics and sheer likeability, you have a whole greater than the sum of its parts. Ferocious Dog are well known and popular for their high octane live performances.

Martin Harley & Daniel Kimbro

Martin Harley & Daniel Kimbro

Always engaging and far from predictable these 'Two musicians at the top of their game' (Music Riot) seek to push the boundaries of blues, folk and American roots music. Original compositions on Slide guitar, double bass, harmony vocals and good humoured banter are cornerstones of their live shows.


Between them they are very much on the world stage and have performed at Glastonbury, The Royal Albert hall, the Ryman Auditorium, Grand Ole Opry, Bonnaroo, Telluride Bluegrass Festival, MerleFest, Bottle Rock,The Edmonton Folk Festival, New Orleans Jazz Fest, The Blue Note Tokyo, Cognac Blues festival, Cayamo and many more. Most recently Daniel toured the US with the Transatlantic Sessions.


The two musicians met through a mutual friend Sam Lewis at Hippie Jack's music festival in Crawford Tennessee. After a brief backstage rehearsal, they took to the stage for an hour of largely improvised music. A few weeks later they were cutting a record at Zac Brown’s iconic Southern Ground. Martin plays a 100 year Weissenborn (Hawaiian acoustic lap guitar), Daniel plucks beats, scratches and bows his upright bass to create and unexpected array of sounds.

DANGEROUS DESIRES, FAMILY SECRETS  AND  POLITICAL INTRIGUES  TWIST  THROUGH  EVERY MOMENT OF DARING CHOREOGRAPHY IN KENNETH MACMILLAN’S BALLET INSPIRED BY TRUE EVENTS.


CHOREOGRAPHY: KENNETH MACMILLAN

MUSIC: FRANZ LISZT

ARRANGED AND ORCHESTRATED BY: JOHN LANCHBERY


A celebrated classic of the Royal Ballet repertory at cinemas for the first time, Mayerling is a classic of the Royal Ballet repertory, with its emotional depth, haunting imagery, and one of the most demanding roles ever created for a male dancer. Kenneth MacMillan choreographed a complex work around the psychologically tormented heir to the Habsburg Empire, Crown Prince Rudolf.


From the ballet’s start, the glamour of the Austro-Hungarian court is contrasted with undercurrents of sexual and political intrigue that drive the story to its violent climax in a double suicide. The large cast allows for impressive ensembles in addition to the ballet's many solos of distinctive character and pas de deux of disturbing eroticism. This ballet, bursting with intensity, madness and passion, proves that sometimes the truth is more scandalous than fiction.


Approximate running time: 3 hours 15 minutes including two intervals.


Tickets: Adult £15.30, Student/Child £12.30

NATALIA  MAKAROVA’S  PRODUCTION  OF  THIS  19TH-CENTURY CLASSIC BALLET  BRINGS  AN EXOTIC  WORLD  OF  TEMPLE  DANCERS  AND  NOBLE WARRIORS  TO  LIFE.


CHOREOGRAPHY: NATALIA  MAKAROVA  AFTER  MARIUS  PETIPA

MUSIC:  LUDWIG  MINKUS  

ORCHESTRATED  BY:  JOHN  LANCHBERY


Marius Petipa’s fantasy, set in legendary India, tells the tale of a temple dancer and the prince who loves her but marries another. The famous, moonlit ‘white act’  – The Kingdom of the Shades – is a corps de ballet highlight, as multiple images of the prince’s lost love haunt his mind. The choreography allows two opposing ballerinas to shine, while a bronze idol comes vividly to life in a stunning solo. Throughout, the melody and moods of Minkus’s music perfectly match the fluidity and precision of the classical choreography and the drama of the storytelling.

National Theatre Live Delayed Cinema Screening

The Madness of George III

by Alan Bennett

Director: Mark Gatiss


Multi-award-winning drama The Madness of George III will be broadcast live to cinemas, in National Theatre Live’s first ever broadcast from Nottingham Playhouse.


Written by one of Britain’s best-loved playwrights Alan Bennett (The History Boys, The Lady in the Van), this epic play was also adapted into a BAFTA Award-winning film following its premiere on stage in 1991.


The cast of this new production includes Olivier Award-winners Mark Gatiss (Sherlock, Wolf Hall, NT Live Coriolanus) in the title role, and Adrian Scarborough (Gavin and Stacey, Upstairs Downstairs, After the Dance).


It’s 1786 and King George III is the most powerful man in the world. But his behaviour is becoming increasingly erratic as he succumbs to fits of lunacy. With the King’s mind unravelling at a dramatic pace, ambitious politicians and the scheming Prince of Wales threaten to undermine the power of the Crown, and expose the fine line between a King and a man.
