Lover

 

Open Space Theatre are back!

Announcing two productions Autumn 2021:

The Lover by Harold Pinter

in September

 

A View from the Bridge by Arthur Miller

in November

Open Space returns to action this autumn with these two theatrical treats - The Lover, an hilarious comedy by Harold Pinter and a View from the Bridge, one of Arthur Miller's greatest plays.

The Lover

will be staged as a rehearsed reading at The Cut Arts Centre in Halesworth as part of the venue's contribution to this years Heritage Open Days*, on Saturday September 18th and Sunday September 19th. Both performances are at 3pm

Emma Martin, Ben Willmott, and Yves Green will form the cast in a costumed and dramatised production which lasts 40 minutes. Entry is free.

A View from the Bridge

will be performed in six venues in November. Rehearsals for this play had to be suspended in March last year because of COVID-19 pandemic

Eddie Carbone struggles to allow Catherine, the orphaned niece he has nurtured and who is now on the cusp of womanhoood, to go out into the wider world. His inner turmoil increases as she falls in love with one of the two illegal immigrants he and his wife, Beatrice, are sheltering. Can Eddie accept the inevitable or will his stubborn obsession turn to tragedy?

The play is set in the 1950s in the shadow of one of New York's landmark buildings, the Brooklyn Bridge.

This OpenSpace production features Darren France as Eddie Cathy Edwards-Gill as Beatrice, Mabel Olliffee as Catherine, Paul Baker as Alfieri the lawyer, Joe Edwards-Gill as the immigrant, Marco, and a newcomer to the theatre company, Sam Armour-Chelu as Rodolpho, Marco's younger brother.

*The Heritage Open Days at The Cut in September are under the umbrella of the National Trust. The Cut is offering a continuous weekend programme of the tupe of events it usual presents, including films, plays music and talks.

'I can take an empty space and call it a bare stage. A man walks across this empty space whilst someone else is watching...'
Peter Brook The Empty Space

Open Space Theatre, based in East Anglia,
offers fresh ideas in presenting a wide range
of performance from classical and
well-known contemporary drama
to issue-based plays by new writers.

Performances are staged in rural areas
where easy access to quality drama is limited.
