|St Joan (first scene) by George Bernard Shaw|
This will be a glimpse of Shaw’s magnificent play about the most famous French woman in history, and a saint to boot! We get to see the effect of this extraordinary young peasant woman on the hard-bitten and seasoned soldiers, bending them gently but inexorably to her (and God’s) will, and setting the scene for the momentous events to follow. As Bertrand de Poulengey, gentleman-at-arms, said, ”There is something about her!”
Mr Foot by Michael Frayn
A tour de force for an actor and actress - and a foot. It seems the man's foot jiggles uncontrollably at various moments and the woman enjoys discussing this with a little man who isn't there. A delightful and thought-provoking look at the relationship between a rather cold and dominating husband and his somewhat neurotic wife, with an underlying message very pertinent to current affairs.
