British American Theatre Company

BATS: Don’t Dress For Dinner (9-10 Oct ’10)

 `

Hurtling along at the speed of light, this breathtaking farce is a near faultless piece of theatrical invention.” – London Guardian

“A nifty comedy about double adultery and gourmet cooking….” London Sunday Times

 

Bernard is planning a weekend with his mistress. He has hired a gourmet cook, is packing his wife Jacqueline off to her mother’s, and has invited his best friend, Robert, to provide an alibi. It is foolproof. What could possibly go wrong? Suppose Robert doesn’t know why he has been invited? Suppose Robert and Jacqueline are secret lovers? What happens if the cook is mistaken for the mistress and the mistress can’t cook? Mix these ingredients and you have the recipe for an evening of hilarious confusion…where nothing can go right!

BATS: Calendar Girls (24-27 Oct 2012)

Calendar Girls

by Tim Firth, based on the Miramax film

screenplay by Juliette Towhidi and Tim Firth
directed for BATS by Tom De Beckker

 

A group of extraordinary women, members of a very ordinary Yorkshire WI, persuade one another to pose for a charity calendar with a difference – no more photos of Wharfedale bridges or Norman churches for them. Overcoming their initial reserve, the friends drop their dressing gowns, their modesty spared only by artfully placed cakes, knitting and flower arrangements.

Puzzling their husbands, mortifying their children and riding the wrath of the outraged WI, they spark a global phenomenon. But as media interest snowballs, the Calendar Girls find themselves exposed in ways they’d never expected, revealing more than they’d ever planned. A very English story with a very English heart, Calendar Girls is quirky, poignant and hilarious.

Adapted by Tim Firth from the Miramax film of the same name, it is based on an uplifting and very inspiring true story.

Performances on 24, 25, 26, 27 (20.00) and 28 (15.00) October 2012 – Tickets are €15 (€13 for students and >65)
