Slapstick Sherlock – November 30 -December 10 2017

Sherlock Holmes’ power struggle relationship with his underdog roommate and assistant Dr. Watson leads to a lot of speculation, especially since one of those “never to be trusted“ women – the holy Miss Hudson – is not only wearing the pants in the house but also the longest leather boots. But who in this humorous triangle is really the smart brain behind “The Brain”, solving the mystery of how the Blue Carbuncle ended up in the Christmas goose?

Slapstick Sherlock is a satirical play combining theatrical elements of classical theatre with musical performance in a witty and modern satire about a seemingly unsolvable but mostly idiotic and unreasonable mystery case.

Join our international cast for a Christmassy giggle to get your December off to a festive start.

Cast: Jana Pulkrabek, Siegmar Tonk, Gordon Torbet

Sex and Betrayal – January 17-28 2018

A cabaret performance combining stories, poems, music etc. about the difference between men and women and the challenges of dating in the modern world.

Sex has always been part of our collective cultural conscience, with numerous songs and books written about it. But what happens when you add betrayal to the mix? These tantalising topics receive an intimate investigation in this surprisingly humorous and sexy cabaret, as we examine the ins and outs of intimacy, the plurality of monogamy, and what it really means to let your heart decide.

A story of love and betrayal and an investigation into the roots of an affair, featuring lovers, sexual desire, internet trists and dangerous liaisons.

Directed by: Jeremy Thomas-Poulsen

Cast: Jana Pulkrabek, Siegmar Tong, Jens Blegaa

Producer: Manusarts

Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike – February 21-March 5 2018

A comedy hit by Christopher Durang revolving around the relationships of three middle-aged single siblings, two of whom live together, and takes place during a visit by the third, Masha, who supports them. They discuss their lives and loves, argue, and Masha threatens to sell the house.

 

Taking inspiration from works of Anton Chekhov and with the play’s setting in a cherry orchard, as well as the theme of the possible loss of an ancestral home, this play skilfully merges realism and farce – with Tony Award-winning success.

 

In this production, the audience is invited to step into the centre of the three siblings and fully immerse themselves in Christopher Durang’s most recent hit from the centre of the stage.

 

Cast: Andrew Jeffers, Vanessa Poole, Jana Pulkrabek
Director: Jeremy Thomas-Poulsen

The Urban Hunt – March 15-18 2018

Inspired by American journalist Brendan Kiley’s article of the same name, this production concerns the hypocrisy regarding eating meat without being willing to kill an animal.

 

To challenge his own hypocrisy, Brendan decides to become a hunter…but rather than venturing out into the wilderness, he becomes a hunter in the city, where his prey includes squirrels, pigeons, garden snails etc., causing him to question the many contrasts he meets.

 

This production takes us from the Brazilian jungle to the streets of Copenhagen – because even here, we are surrounded by wildlife and even wilder hypocrisies.

 

Cast: Malte Frid-Nielsen
Directed by: Jeremy Thomas-Poulsen
