The Warehouse Studio Theatre
Tartuffe: A New American Satire is an original adaptation of Molière’s masterful play about hypocrisy. It is written by Jake Brandman, directed by Jeremy Zeegers and produced by the American Theatre Company.

This romp of a comedy will be performed in September 2016 during the heat of the American presidential election. Any similarity with current events is attributable to the genius of Molière and the enduring nature of human flaws.

ITG: After Friel (11-15 Oct 2016)

Friel pub Just White Reduced

 

Brian Friel was not only a much acclaimed playwright but he also adapted and translated, faithfully and tenderly, the plays of others.

 

The ITG would like to bring you two such works; very different in their content, style and approach but clearly from the pen of the same writer. Demonstrating Friel’s recurring interest in how we try to reinvent ourselves and the convenient lies we tell to the world around us.
One ‘after Chekhov’, the other ‘after Macklin’ and now sadly, one year on from his death, ‘After Friel’.

 

 

The London Vertigo, an 18th century farce by Charles Macklin, but now stripped down to its hilarious essentials, and ‘Afterplay’, an extension to the lives of two characters from two different Chekhov plays who meet 20 years after their dramatic embodiments left the stage.

The London Vertigo was our entry to FEATS 2016 where it picked up three awards: Best Production, Best Stage Presentation, and Best Actor

A Christmas Carol – the Musical
De Kam, Wezembeek-Oppem
24 – 27 November 2016 at the Auderghem Cultural Centre Theatre

Based on the classic by Charles Dickens, written in 1843, Alan Menken’s musical version of the story is true to the original. Grumpy miserly Ebenezer Scrooge will have nothing to do with Christmas as everybody else in London is preparing to celebrate. His late partner, the equally miserly Jacob Marley, appears to him as a mournful ghost and foretells of the visit of three ghosts who will try to reform Scrooge so that he doesn’t end up like Marley. Once shown the error of his ways, Scrooge finally realises that the future ahead is not one he wants and he makes amends. It’s a ghost story about redemption.
