    The Father

    This tragic-comedy, winner of the Moliere Award for Best Play of 2014, plunges us into the mind of a man whose grasp on reality is gradually fading.  Is Andre living on his own flat or that of his daughter Anne?  Has the carer stolen his watch? Is his daughter married or was she divorced five years ago?  Heartbreak and black humour combine in this moving drama by prize-winning playwright Florian Zeller.

    Who will care for the carer? A dark comedy tale of two very different sisters.

    Marvin is dying. But he’s been dying for the past twenty years so his daughter Bessie doesn’t miss anything. Bessie herself has leukaemia and needs a bone marrow transplant so reaches out to her estranged sister for help. This dark American comedy, full of wit and pathos, sheds light on family tensions and exposes the sometimes delicate balance between caregiving and selfishness.

    MIE presents its second of jazz concerts at this wonderful venue.

    1901 Arts Club is a beautiful and unique venue very close to Waterloo Station, which was converted from an old schoolmaster’s house. The tastefully decorated concert salon, inspired by Europe’s Salon culture, houses a Steinway grand piano and can cater for an audience of up to 45. There is a stylish bar and lounge area with a late night licence where audience members can relax before or after the performance.

    "Lockrane's flute work is exceptional, combining a relaxed fluidity on the one hand with an acute adventureness on the other..." Peter Quinn, Jazzwise

     

    "The formidable Lockrane...a stunning display of sharp-accented runs, earthy whoops and constantly refrshed melodic ideas" John Fordham, The Gaurdian

    Teddington Artists at Strawberry Hill House

    Teddington Artists at Strawberry Hill House        28th & 29th September

    See both the Artists and the House for half the usual entry fee. Admission at £6.00

    In an exciting new collaboration, Teddington Artists will be holding their 2019 Art Fair in the magnificent surroundings Strawberry Hill House, Horace Walpole's exotic home by the Thames. Chairman John Walsh said "We are absolutely thrilled to be able to support this wonderful treasure and, at the same time, give our many faithful customers a rare chance to see both the house and the art in one visit."

    Among the wide range of work produced by Teddington Artists - a small group of professional artists founded in 1996 - are the inventive creations of Wick and Anouschka Hutton. They rove the country - antiques fairs, beaches etc - seeking things that catch their eye: 'objets trouvés' they call them. These Wick assembles into useful and decorative pieces. Oil lamps made from a silver jug, a pair of sugar tongs and a few teaspoons. An electric light fitting made from an old glass insulator. Wick laughs "My studio is a sight to behold with an amazing array of bits and pieces. Depending on what I find, any of those items might turn out to be just the thing."

      

    In her own nearby studio, his wife Anouschka rivals Wick in her upcycling of silver plated items into fantastical ships and flying fish. She says they are "Ships to fly in, dream and travel to far off places in!" But Anouschka’s main passion is painting, producing strong, colourful modern canvasses of rocky cliffs and seascapes inspired by her beloved Cornwall.

      

    There will be 23 very varied artists at the Art Fair on 28th and 29th September - a mix of members of Teddington Artists and carefully selected guests. There are painters, printers, photographers, ceramicists, jewellers and textile artists alongside Wick and Anouschka. "We are delighted to be able to strengthen our links to the local community by giving a new home to this well established event." said Valerie Beard, Events Manager at Strawberry Hill House "We look forward to welcoming a new audience to this fabulous place."

    Marie Lloyd Stole My Life

    Marie Lloyd does not appear in this play!  She has been cast in a supporting role to the now less well-known Nelly Power.  The play is a newly  written one woman show and in the true spirit of all comedy, which is based on tragedy, Nelly tells the story of her career with amusing anecdotes and a wry sense of humour.   It is a funny and also poignant real-life tale of female empowerment in a patriarchal society.  Whilst the suffragists are politely protesting outside her place of work, Nelly is on stage using Music Hall’s own brand of subversity to mock the male establishment.  And offstage she is building a property portfolio and a small fortune  - until tragedy strikes.   After a hugely successful career Nelly lost her most famous song to the younger Marie Lloyd.  Her career never fully recovered but Marie went on to become the “Queen of the Music Hall” and did everything bigger and better than Nelly (even more marriages and divorces and approximately 10 times as many people at her funeral than Nelly’s 4,000). The story is punctuated with well-known music hall songs so audiences can expect a bit of a sing-along if they are so inclined.
