Author: Michael Palin

Director: Ben Crowley

Synopsis

The Weekend, written by Monty Python’s Michael Palin, was written and premiered in 1994 on the West End. Michael Palin’s first stage play is a look at family values which is not only very funny but also has its’ darker side. Faced with a family gathering, world-weary Stephen Febble does his utmost to be difficult. When his daughter, her dreary husband Alan, their precocious child and – not least – the dog come to stay for the weekend it’s enough to make him reach for the whisky, and for the sarcasm. The climax arrives on Saturday night when his patient wife Virginia has laid on a dinner party and the chiropodist comes too. The Weekend is Michael Palin’s only stage play and contains much of his self-effacing humour, laced with sharp observation and truth too.

The Importance of Being Earnest

21 Nov 2021 @ 12:00pm

Author: Oscar Wilde

Director: Ellis Ebell

Genre: Comedy

Agent: N/A

Synopsis

The spirit of Oscar Wilde returns to the WLT stage in the most famous of Wilde’s plays. The play itself needs no introduction: it has been described as ‘a trivial comedy for serious people’. Although this classic was first performed in 1895, its high farce and witty dialogue have helped make it one of the most performed and enduring of Wilde’s plays.
It has been performed by almost every theatre company worldwide, with the role of Lady Bracknell being played by world famous actors of both genders! Our challenge is to give it ‘something different’
