    The Lonesome West

    Welcome to beautiful rural Connemara, where violence, murder and suicide are local recreational activities. Psychotic siblings Coleman and Valene share a remote cottage and perpetual disputes over the most mundane of topics. Only the alcoholic, ineffectual priest Father Walsh strives to reconcile them. Add a visit from teenager Girleen, the local poteen supplier, and a shotgun and....

    Violent, outrageous and very funny, as one might expect from the author of ‘The Lieutenant of Inishmore’, ‘The Pillowman’ and ‘Three Billboards outside Ebbing, Missouri’.

    A Visit from Miss Prothero & An Englishman Abroad

    A Visit from Miss Prothero & An Englishman Abroad

    by Alan Bennett

    Directed by Jenny Hobson

    A Visit from Miss Prothero.  Alone and recently retired, Arthur Dodsworth’s relatively settled life is turned upside down by a visit from his vindictive ex-secretary. Ironic wit and compassion mark this touchingly real story.

    An Englishman Abroad. Moscow 1958. Exiled British spy Guy Burgess encounters actress Coral Browne on tour from the 'old country'. Invited to lunch at Burgess's shabby apartment, he presents her with a strange request.

    Teddington Summer Music are performing their second concert of light-hearted enjoyment.  After a new and specially composed arrangement by Tom Higgs of the Emperor Waltz by Johann Strauss II comes Stanford's Serenade in F - a masterly work combining lyricism with irrevelent humour (the 2nd movement variations are based on a cheeky motif from Till Eulenspiegel) and sheer ebullience.  Jean Francaix's Dixtuor is typically French in its lightness of touch and witty interplay between the instruments, while the evening is rounded off with some of offenbach's most catchy and exhilarating tunes.

    Performed by The London Dvorak Ensemble.

    Conductor: Tom Higgins

    Wolf Hall & Bring up the Bodies by Hilary Mantel, adapted for the stage by Mike Poulton.

    The year is 1527. King for almost 20 years, Henry has no male heir.  While Catherine is determined to remain Queen, Henry obsesses about replacing her with a wife who can give him a son.  In a highly dangerous and politically charged Court, this could be a golden opportunity for a man with the right talents.  Enter Thomas Cromwell...

    Sir Edward Elgar's Dream of Gerontius at Southwark Cathedral

    Saturday 22nd June is a unique day in the calendar for both the Epsom Choral Society and Barnes Choir.  These two great well-established choirs will be joining forces for the first time, under their joint musical director Julian Collings, to perform Elgar’s best loved choral work, the Dream of Gerontius, at the great Southwark Cathedral.

    Gerontius is acknowledged to be one of the greatest choral works ever written. It is a deeply moving work, a heartfelt expression of loss and hope in the face of death.  The poem was written by Cardinal John Henry Newman, (whose canonisation is due to take place in Rome later this year). It follows the journey of a dying man who meets his Guardian Angel and goes before his God before being taken to Purgatory with the promise of everlasting glory. With stirring passages of great power and beauty and an achingly beautiful finale, this great work is cherished by music lovers everywhere.

    These two long established choirs, Epsom Choral Society currently in its 97th season and Barnes Choir now in its 66th season, will bring their love and experience of great choral singing to delight their audience.

    The soloists are Judy Brown (mezzo-soprano), Elgan Llŷr Thomas (tenor) and Julien Van Mellaerts (baritone). Also performing are the Arcubus Ensemble and the Regent Sinfonia.

    Entry is £20, or £10 for students and under-18s and there are restricted view seat for £15, or £8 for students and under-18s available from https://gerontius2019.org.uk/shop or Tel 07522 111 219

    Summer Concert: the Power of Song

    Duruflé Requiem
    Bruch: Die Macht des Gesanges
    Tavener: Svyati
    Vierne: Les Angélus

    This fascinating programme brings together works from three very different traditions. Duruflé’s love of Gregorian plainchant shines through his understated, achingly lyrical Requiem mass, which will be performed alongside his friend Vierne’s enchanting songs for mezzo-soprano and organ. John Tavener’s Svyati for choir and cello, written in memory of a friend, draws movingly on the colour and tradition of the Russian Orthodox church. Finally, The Power of Song by Max Bruch, is an impassioned, Romantic hymn to the quasi-religious power of music itself.
