ECC: Copenhagen (8-12 Oct 2013)

In 1941 the Danish Nobel Prize winning physicist, Niels Bohr, and his German counterpart, Werner Heisenberg, met at Bohr’s home in occupied Denmark. The former colleagues and good friends were now technically enemies. Today they meet once more, together with Bohr’s wife Margrethe,  to examine the events of that mysterious meeting.
Tension, guilt, suppressed emotion, nuclear physics and human drama are all bound up in this intriguing play.
8-12 October 2013 at 8pm, SOLD OUT!

ATC: Twelve Angry Men (22-26 Oct 2013)

The American Theatre Company will be performing Twelve Angry Men by Reginald Rose, directed by Deborah Griffith at the Palais de Beaux Arts Studio Theatre from 22-26 October 2013.

12 Angry Men is the story of twelve men‚ trapped in a jury room‚ who must decide on the guilt or innocence of a young man accused of murdering his father. Tensions run high as personalities come into conflict‚ stereotypes and prejudices are confronted‚ and societal assumptions are called into question.

Although the original text of this classic American drama dates from 1957‚ its message still resonates today: democracy and justice cannot function without a commitment from members of society to take part in the process. To quote Plato‚ “The price of apathy in public affairs is to be ruled by evil men.”

Tickets are available from the Palais de Beaux Arts web site.

BSS: Way of the World (13-16 Nov 2013)

Double-dealing,pretence, seduction! Great wit, dazzling dialogue! Mirabell sets out to marry Millamant – but to wed her with her fortune intact, he must outwit her aunt, the vain and fanciful Lady Wishfort, who despises him and wants Millamant to marry Sir Wilfull Witwoud.
Congreve’s 18th century comedy of manners exposes a superficial society in which love and money are inextricably bound – a world of verbal battles amid the scheming of fools, fops, rivals and villains.
Performances at the Bronks Theatre, from Wednesday 13th to Saturday 16th of November at 8.pm and Matinée at 2.30 pm on Saturday.
