The Return Of The Soldier

New Wolsey Theatre, Civic Drive, Ipswich, IP1 2AS

A few more details ...

Music by Charles Miller.
Book and Lyrics by Tim Sanders.

On the centenary of the First World War’s end, The Return of the Soldier is an intimate new chamber musical based on Rebecca West's celebrated 1918 novel.

An intensely bitter-sweet tale dissects the very different love of three women for one man. When Christopher returns from the front with shell-shock, there are profound consequences for each of them, and for their love.

This powerful new drama, with its rich and arresting score, becomes an eloquent treatise on the nature of love, truth, memory and loss. In the end, only an extraordinary sacrifice will restore a fragile status quo.

The Habit of Art

New Wolsey Theatre, Civic Drive, Ipswich, IP1 2AS

A few more details ...

Alan Bennett is one our greatest and most celebrated playwrights, with a cavalcade of stage and screen blockbusters including The History Boys, The Madness of King George and Talking Heads. He is applauded as a genius for his sharp character observations and treasured for the way he beautifully balances wit, wistfulness and compassion.

In The Habit of Art, Bennett gives us a play about a meeting between the poet WH Auden and the composer Benjamin Britten.

Exploring friendship, rivalry and heartache this multi layered masterpiece examines the joy, pain and emotional cost of creativity.

This production directed by Philip Franks marks the first ever revival of the play and stars the Olivier Award winning Matthew Kelly (Of Mice and Men, Toast and Pride and Prejudice) and David Yelland (Chariots of Fire and The Crown) with Veronica Roberts (Tenko, Peak Practice), Robert Mountford (Anita and Me), John Wark (Dead Sheep), Alexandra Guelff (Witness for the Prosecution) and Benjamin Chandler (Passing From The Third Floor Back).

The Gondoliers

Seckford Theatre, Burkitt Road, Woodbridge, IP12 4JH

A few more details ...

Presented by Ipswich Gilbert & Sullivan's Society

In Venice lived two brothers, Marco and Giuseppe. They are happy being Gondoliers, until one day an imposing stranger announces they are not in fact brothers, but that one of them is the only son and heir of the late King of Barataria. Precisely which is the King and the Gondolier is unfortunately an inconvenient mystery. It is doubly inconvenient when they discover that the King, whichever he is, was married in infancy to the daughter of a Spanish Duke as - only half an hour earlier - the brothers were both married to two local Venetian girls.

Forced to leave their new wives behind, the Gondoliers set off to Barataria, set up a republican government where all are equal, and they reign in a coalition government. Surely this can't go on forever?

Come and join us for an evening of love, fun and frolics - all in Gilbert and Sullivan's inimitable style!

PLEASE NOTE: The New Wolsey Theatre is acting as a ticketing agency for this event. Please check the venue and event details carefully.

Trial By Laughter

New Wolsey Theatre, Civic Drive, Ipswich, IP1 2AS

A few more details ...

Following critical acclaim for The Wipers Times, Ian Hislop and Nick Newman have once again taken inspiration from real life events for their new play Trial by Laughter.

William Hone, the forgotten hero of free speech, was a bookseller, publisher and satirist. In 1817, he stood trial for ‘impious blasphemy and seditious libel’. The only crime he had committed was to be funny. Worse than that he was funny by parodying religious texts. And worst of all, he was funny about the despotic government and the libidinous monarchy.

Cinderella

New Wolsey Theatre, Civic Drive, Ipswich, IP1 2AS

A few more details ...

This year, the New Wolsey Theatre goes back to where it all began, Cinderella – the Rock’n’Roll panto!

Sponsored by Ipswich Building Society

It’s time to Shake a Tail Feather and head Downtown to Ipswich Town Hall to meet the Mayor, Baron Hardup! It’s not easy being Mayor, with Prince Charming due in town for a Royal visit and a staff of only two – his beautiful, feisty daughter, Cinderella and the loyal and loveable Buttons. But when his lonely hearts ad is answered by the mysterious Rubella De Zees, who brings along her two dangerous daughters Hernia and Verruca, it seems he’s far more than Three Steps to Heaven. Thankfully, there’s a Fairy Godmother to make sure Cinderella is ready to Rock Around The Clock!

Written by Peter Rowe, the classic rock’n’roll panto, with a hint of soul, is back with another multi-talented cast of actor-musicians. Rock, pop and soul classics include It's Raining Men, In the Midnight Hour, Try a Little Tenderness and more!

We're Gonna Make You Wanna Shout!

Please note, the one and only late night special is Friday 21 December at 9pm.

This year, the New Wolsey Theatre goes back to where it all began, Cinderella – the Rock’n’Roll panto!

Sponsored by Ipswich Building Society

It’s time to Shake a Tail Feather and head Downtown to Ipswich Town Hall to meet the Mayor, Baron Hardup! It’s not easy being Mayor, with Prince Charming due in town for a Royal visit and a staff of only two – his beautiful, feisty daughter, Cinderella and the loyal and loveable Buttons. But when his lonely hearts ad is answered by the mysterious Rubella De Zees, who brings along her two dangerous daughters Hernia and Verruca, it seems he’s far more than Three Steps to Heaven. Thankfully, there’s a Fairy Godmother to make sure Cinderella is ready to Rock Around The Clock!

Written by Peter Rowe, the classic rock’n’roll panto, with a hint of soul, is back with another multi-talented cast of actor-musicians. Rock, pop and soul classics include It's Raining Men, In the Midnight Hour, Try a Little Tenderness and more!

This year, the New Wolsey Theatre goes back to where it all began, Cinderella – the Rock’n’Roll panto!

Sponsored by Ipswich Building Society

It’s time to Shake a Tail Feather and head Downtown to Ipswich Town Hall to meet the Mayor, Baron Hardup! It’s not easy being Mayor, with Prince Charming due in town for a Royal visit and a staff of only two – his beautiful, feisty daughter, Cinderella and the loyal and loveable Buttons. But when his lonely hearts ad is answered by the mysterious Rubella De Zees, who brings along her two dangerous daughters Hernia and Verruca, it seems he’s far more than Three Steps to Heaven. Thankfully, there’s a Fairy Godmother to make sure Cinderella is ready to Rock Around The Clock!

Written by Peter Rowe, the classic rock’n’roll panto, with a hint of soul, is back with another multi-talented cast of actor-musicians. Rock, pop and soul classics include It's Raining Men, In the Midnight Hour, Try a Little Tenderness and more!

Common Ground Theatre Company Present

THE SCARLET PIPISTRELLE
by Pat Whymark & Julian Harries

They seek him here, they seek him there,
Those Frenchies seek him everywhere.
Is he in Heaven, or is he in Hell,
Or a small theatre in Ipswich - who can tell?

1793. Paris is gripped by the Jacobins. The Compte de Creme-Brulée is to be guillotined on the morrow. His only hope, a daring swoop by that dashing master of disguise and echo-location, The Scarlet Pipistrelle, who has already undertaken several rescues of aristocrats. Who knows, perhaps this time, he might actually succeed!

Common Ground will be concocting their trademark heady mix of genre pastiche, musical dexterity and sheer lunacy that East Anglian Christmas audience know and love.
