On Stage:

Fiona Whitelaw's  (Branch Chair) play Acceptable Damage is being performed as a rehearsed reading in Angelic Tales at Theatre Royal Stratford East on 17th June.

1-5 July - Judith Quin keeping busy. Appearing as Kathleen Isherwood & probably a Nazi officer or two (not devised yet!) in a devised adaptation of Christopher & His Kind (based on the life of Christopher Isherwood - 'Cabaret' based on his life in Berlin) with Jackinabox Productions at The Space, Isle of Dogs. More info: Christopher & His Kind

Hywel Morgan Is playing Nye Bevan in 'This May Hurt A Bit' at the St James Theatre from 14th May to the 21st June.

It's a proper bit of agit prop about saving the NHS from privatisation and there's even a Tuesday matinee on the 27th May for branch members who have Thursday matinees themselves. 
Subject to availability, I can get cast rate tickets for £10 that can be paid for on the door but I need to give box office at least 48 hours notice.
Here's a flavour of the reviews:

“ Passionate, urgently topical... Our theatre has long been crying out for a new play on the subject ”

The Guardian

“ A touching drama... Surreal, hilarious and hard-hitting... Max Stafford-Clark's direction is masterly. Each member of his eight-strong cast is a joy to watch, in every single one of their 25 characters... As theatrically entertaining as it is politically committed ”

The Observer

“ As agit-prop theatre goes, Max Stafford-Clark's production must surely rank as one of the most stylish ever staged ”

Whatsonstage.com

“ A sterling cast ”

Manchester Evening News

“ Both funny and full of bemused rage ”

Scottish Herald

“ Powerful, inspiring and entertaining... Human poignancy and laugh-out-loud comedy ”

Bury Free Press

“ Wonderful writing... The eight-strong cast is superb and a delight to watch... Stephanie Cole is perfectly cast as witty, feisty and independent Iris ”

Bolton News
