Ring Round the Moon August 20-25
By: Jean Anouilh
Directed by: Jonathan Bolt
Translated by: Christopher Fry

A comic tale of love and matchmaking set in the winter garden of a wealthy estate during a ball. A poor but lovely dancer, Isabelle, arrives at the invitation of Hugo, a charming scoundrel and twin brother to Frederic, a young man hopelessly in love. Hugo believes that his brother loves the wrong woman - a manipulative millionairess - and intends to use Isabelle to break up the engagement  The play’s vivid and numerous characters, along with the quick-paced wit and satire of upper-class pretension and lower-class ambition, lead to a fairy tale ending where nearly everything turns out for the best.

Her Naked Skin August 19-24
By: Rebecca Lenkiewicz
Directed by: Barbara Rubin

London 1913. Militancy in the Suffragette Movement is at its height. Emily Davison, in an act of resistance, runs out in front of the King's Horse and is trampled to death. Thousands of women of all classes are serving time in Holloway Prison for their violent struggle to gain the vote. Inside, Lady Celia Cain meets Eve Douglas, a young seamstress, and they begin an affair that crosses fraught class lines. With emancipation almost in sight, and women everywhere refusing to let the establishment stand in their way, Celia confronts what personal risks she must take to reveal what she truly values. Her Naked Skin premiered at The National Theatre in London in 2008, making history as the first original play written by a woman to be presented on the Olivier stage.

"I used to work at the National Film Theatre as an usherette" writes playwright Rebecca Lenkiewicz," and on my breaks I'd often go out to the river with a cup of tea and scour the bookstalls under Waterloo Bridge. One large paperback volume Shoulder to Shoulder cried out to me to be bought. It was by Midge Mackenzie and was a documentary account of the suffragettes. It was a battered copy and cost a tenner...and from devouring that book came my urge to write about the period and a desire to put those women into the foreground once more; their bravery and brilliance."
