Happy Days Are Here Again

Happy Days Are Here Again

We are all in need of lifting our spirits, having a good old sing song and a really good laugh. If that sounds like a good idea, then this is the show for you!


On the 8th May 1945, millions of people took to the streets to celebrate peace and to look forward to a brighter future. This show brings you the songs heard at those parties, songs that won the war, good old fashioned singalongs and beautiful ballads.


The show includes a tribute to the late Dame Vera Lynn, the Nation's Sweetheart, with songs including, When the Lights Go on Again , Lili Marlene, A Nightingale Sang in Berkeley Square, I'll Be Seeing You, and, of course, The White Cliffs of Dover and We'll Meet Again.


You can 'Meet The Gang' as we take you back to the ENSA concert party days, with songs and fun from Arthur Askey, Gracie Fields and Flanagan and Allen to name a few.


There is a good old fashioned knees up where you can singalong to 'Roll Out the Barrel', 'Side by Side', 'Knees Up Mother Brown' and 'Lambeth Walk', amongst others. You will be taken back to the sounds of the Andrew Sisters and Glen Miller in our American section with our fabulous dancers tapping and jiving! We will pay a respectful tribute to our Fallen Heroes, honouring all our Armed Forces and creating poignant, but beautiful scenes using our state of the art projection screen.


We will be recreating the atmosphere of the Last Night of the Proms, plenty of flag waving of course and all the words will be on the screen, so you will be actively encouraged to join in with songs including 'Land of Hope and Glory', 'Rule Britannia' and 'There'll Always Be An England' . There will be a big surprise in the Finale as well, currently under construction, watch this space!


The show is performed by seven Award Winning vocalists with incredible voices and amazing harmonies, and talented dancers with beautiful bespoke costumes. With our fabulous comedian leading proceedings and lifting your spirits, this feelgood show is guaranteed to leave you with a smile on your face.

All Is Mended

All Is Mended

Living Room Theatre presents 'All is Mended'


'All Is Mended' is a comedy with a serious side. A repurposing of A Midsummer Night’s Dream telling a new story of life in a care home about magic and remembering, resilience and forgetting, old age and young dreams. It's a shape-shifting drama, funny and sad, real and dreamlike, a tale of life and death and of course love.


The show is interwoven with extracts from our collected conversations, wisdom and memories with local elders from Devon’s care homes, their families and the staff. With just two actors playing all the parts, come and be away with the fairies (and Puck, Bottom & Co) for an hour or so.


Prior to the show (18th October - 1st November) there will be a linked free art exhibition “Old Hands @ Art”, with works created by our elders working with our 'All Is Mended' artist. And our book “Care Home Stories” collecting extracts from our work in Devon’s care homes communities: conversations, poems, photos, paintings, and a sprinkling of Shakespeare’s sonnets will be available to look at and buy at the exhibition and the show.


Sweet dreams 'til sunbeams find you,

Sweet dreams that leave all worries behind you

But in your dreams, whatever they be

Dream a little dream of me.”

Ella Fitzgerald & Louis Armstrong – Dream a Little Dream


“Let me be that I am,

seek not to alter me

Let me play the fool:

With mirth and laughter

let old wrinkles come.”

William Shakespeare

Shylock

Shylock

Explore the tragic, funny and often unbelievable life of fiction’s most famous Jew in this acclaimed theatre production that has toured over 50 countries.


Written and performed by Gareth Armstrong, and directed by Frank Barrie and running at just 80 minutes, this is a play which explores the world of Shakespeare’s most controversial character, Shylock from the Merchant of Venice. The play examines religious and racial intolerance, the history of plays in performance and celebrates the richness of Shakespeare’s language.


Gareth, who has played leading roles with the Royal Shakespeare Company in the West End and at Shakespeare’s Globe, first performed Shylock at the 1997 Edinburgh Fringe, receiving astonishing reviews in the national press and 5 Stars from the Festival critics. Over the following 10 years Shylock won awards touring all over the world from Stratford-upon-Avon to off-Broadway.


“Armstrong is nothing short of incredible...It is an exceptional piece of theatre. Everyone should see it.” - The Independent on Sunday


“This is as good as theatre gets...It was undiluted joy and a privilege to watch.”  - Liverpool Daily Post.


“It’s all fascinating, a nimble analysis of the thorny, much-abused character and the great, troublesome play.”  - The Washington Post.


“It delights, enlightens and dazzles. With a leer, a wink, a shrug, he expresses more than words can say. In a word, brilliant.” - Jewish Bulletin of Northern California.


Shakespeare fans will kneel in homage and raise their arms to shout ‘Hallelujah’.” - The Dominion, Wellington NZ.


 “This is a performance which deserves to be sold out. It is theatre for thinking men and women, it is theatre of the imagination, of liberating emotions and, also, of bold thinking.” -  Kurier, Vienna.


“Gareth Armstrong is magnetic throughout...You need not be Jewish nor and Eng Lit expert to appreciate this: you need only be human.” - The List, Edinburgh (5 Stars).


The show is suitable for age 15 and above.

Snow Angel Cabaret

Snow Angel Cabaret

From the ashes rises a Phoenix…or at the very least a couple of birds with tremendous style.


A shamelessly festive show celebrating all that is Christmassy.  From Michael Bublé and Tiny Tim to Frozen mashups and the return of the small and ever-popular Eskimo. Mad-capped, joyous and at times preposterous, this is an evening of festive frivolity with a tiny sparkle of magic that will delight the unhinged and charm the pants of everyone else.


Charlie Bicknell became a household name playing 'Delilah' in BBC2's This Life and subsequently starred as 'Scout' in Ben Elton's West End hit Popcorn. Continuing to work as an actress for the National Theatre and rep around the UK, Charlie then moved into cabaret and circus, performing all over the world.


Louise Innes is a versatile operatic mezzo soprano, who has sung at Covent Garden Opera House, Scottish Opera, La Scala, Festival Hall, and 10 Downing Street to name but a few.  She has recently been performing with Charlie in Londons’ Crazy Coq, Chelsea Arts Club, St James Theatre and all over the South West.


"Charlie Bicknell and Louise Innes combine a gloriously dark sense of humour with amazing voices. A great fun night out not to be missed!" - The Observer
