Bath Drama presents...
Time Flies, an evening of David Ives
Directed by Lauren Arena-McCann
Asst. Director Matt Rushton
Join us for our highly anticipated return to the Rondo Theatre with an evening of comedy, exploring the themes of life, love, and lust through a selection of short plays by David Ives – a playwright regarded as one of the USA’s finest comedy writers!
Keeping to the ‘rule of 6’ imposed during rehearsals, the talented company of 4 will play many roles throughout the show, keeping them, and you on your toes!
Rondo Theatre, Bath, BA1 6RT
Wed 23rd June 2021 - Sat 26th June 2021
The first of our 6 one act plays is 'Time Flies' - a timeless romcom following our two protagonists as they explore life, and life's challenges, all whilst fighting some rather... irresistible urges!
Our second short play is 'English Made Simple'. A theatrical Ted Talk exploring social interactions, using the backdrop of a house party to set the scene.
What could possibly go wrong??!
The 3rd of our 6 plays is 'Captive Audience'. Rob & Laura are flat mates and close friends, but Rob also loves watching TV.
Is there more to this than meets the eye?!! Stay tuned.....
Our 4th play is 'Enigma Variations'. Mrs Doppelgängler believes that there is a 2nd version of everything in existence. Dr. Bill is on hand however, to assure her that it's ok, she is not alone!
Our penultimate play is 'Sure Thing'. Bill is just your average guy, visiting your average coffee shop on an average day... that is until his world is turned upside down when he sees Betty!
Our final play is 'Soap Opera'. Manny, a washing machine repairman, is having some serious relationship issues. What unfolds is a deep-dive into Manny's life and just how he found himself here...
Robin Hood and the Babes in the Wood
This is a new panto, being written as you read this, with lots of relevant jokes about vaccines, home schooling, and lockdowns.
The villainous and greedy Sheriff of Nottingham is already guardian to the rich and beautiful Maid Marian, when he hears of the Babes, a brother and sister who have been orphaned and have plenty of cash. Even though Nottingham is in the grip of a plague, he sends his evil but incompetent henchmen / women (Vi and Russ) to bring them, by force if necessary, to Nottingham Castle.
Meanwhile, Robin Hood and his Merry Men are having a tough time in lockdown, everyone getting cross and frustrated, especially Scarlett (Will Scarlett or Won't She?) who has been wooed by Robin for ages but can't decide to marry him. There are also the Big and Little Johns, Much the Miller's daughter (who Scarlett will eventually marry), and Fryer Tuck, who's running a takeaway fish & chips business.
Auditions will be held in late August / early September and rehearsals will start in October, with the panto taking place in January 2022. Email email@example.com if you are interested.
