    Show Do Tell

    An exhibition of undefined and repurposed objects telling stories by unreliable narrators. 

    As part of their exhibition of paintings and sculptures, Louise Severyn-Kosinska and Monica Wheeler will be working in the gallery, remaking a selection of found objects and items brought in by gallery visitors. Repurposing, giving new life, voices and meaning to the everyday and the overlooked, the artists will be repairing and re-imagining a selection of donated items, ranging from the domestic to the unfamiliar, the unwanted, broken or damaged. Repaired with thought and care, with unexpected juxtapositions of materials , some will merit a short story to detail and label their journey. The work will continue to be made in the gallery, and will develop over the weeks . Collaborating on the objects, they will be bringing a sense of the absurd through visual and literal language to culminate in an eclectic collection.

    Look out for “Wanted” posters in the local area, where the public will be invited to bring an object or choose an item from a selection box, and have a (socially distanced if appropriate) tête à tête about the piece.

    The exhibition also includes a free workshop: Liminal Postcards. Sat 20 Nov 2 – 3pm. All welcome. Check website for details

    Short Plays for Short Journeys

    Wild Duck Theatre is delighted that Short Plays for Short Journeys Season Two is now available on all major podcast servers or via link wildducktheatre.com/podcasts

    The success of Season One has given us an international reach this time as we include two American, an Irish and two Brits in selecting the very best of new writing.

    Performed by a mixture of pro/experienced actors from in and around Richmond, these are a fascinating mix: Covenant Farm and our stewardship of the land; Relic and the memories of an Irish childhood; Sisters-in-Law as a sequel to Brothers in Season One; Butterflies as a riff on the smart home and Crazy Quilts which is an unsettling look at a small town quilting group.  

    Donations to support the podcast and new writing can be made at wildducktheatre.com/donate 

    For fuller sponsorship partnership opportunities with Wild Duck Productions, please do get in touch info@wildducktheatre.london

    If you're a Writer, Director, or Actor looking to showcase and would like to be a part of future Seasons, we'd love to hear from you.

    We are also looking to collaborate with creative sound designers for Season 3 and beyond. For further information please go to www.wildducktheatre.com/who-are-we

    Wild Duck Theatre is a London based theatre company established in 2015, with a mission to produce high quality contemporary work, combining the best talent - experienced amateur or polished professional and often a mixture of both. Writers, Actors and Directors often develop their career ambitions by showcasing with us.

    While the Sun Shines

    ★★★★★ “Rollickingly good fun” The Reviews Hub
    ★★★★ “Paul Miller’s delightful production fizzes with fun... Make hay with a glorious night of theatre.” Fiona Mountford, Evening Standard
    ★★★★★ “Delightful comedy” Essentially Surrey
    ★★★★ “Comes up fresh as paint” The Guardian
    ★★★★ “A lot of laughs... Miller’s production is one of immense charm.” The Stage
    ★★★★ “So many laughs you might opt to see it twice.” London Theatre 1

    On the eve of his wedding, the young Earl of Harpenden – Bobby to his friends – has offered his room to Joe, an American soldier he drunkenly met the night before. When Bobby’s fiancée Lady Elizabeth turns up, Joe makes a move, thinking she must be Bobby’s ex, the wonderful Mabel Crum. But a Free French lieutenant also has eyes for her... And to complicate matters, Bobby’s future father-in-law turns up too. London in the Blitz, and identities get confused: time to make hay...

    This first major London revival of Rattigan’s delectably charming comedy in decades had an acclaimed sold out run in 2019. It was the writer’s greatest hit playing for over 1,000 performances in the West End when it opened in 1943.

    Thameside Harmony Chorus open evenings

    Ladies' four part harmony group Thameside Harmony Chorus are opening their doors to host two open evenings on Wednesday 24th November and Wednesday 1st December.

    Why not come along and try us out? We are hoping ladies of all ages will come along and join in with the sorts of music we sing, which is often in the barbershop style but also includes some songs from musicals and classic pop hits from artists like Abba and Queen. On the open evenings, we'll sing some carols where you can sing the tune and we'll sing the harmonies, we'll demonstrate some of our repertoire songs to you, we'll do rounds together and we'll all learn some short tunes known as tags in four part harmony.

    Email us at the address on our website (see photo of leaflet), or see our Facebook post in the Hampton group to ask a further question or to obtain a registration form. We hope to see you there!
