Our Current Production

Looped No QR code_edited.jpg

 

Friday 10th May - Sunday 26th May 2024

Looped During the Summer of 1965, celebrated actress Tallulah Bankhead entered a Los Angeles recording studio to re-record (or “loop”) just one line of dialogue from her final film Die, Die My Darling. What should have taken about 8 minutes ended up taking 8 hours.

 

Playwright Matthew Lombardo, using a great deal of theatrical licence, offers us a hilarious yet sympathetic guesstimation as to what may have happened in that room on that day.

Family Values- Friday 16 Aug - Sun Sept 1

Family Values by David Williamson

Roger is a retired High Court judge turning 70. No gifts and no fuss. Quality family time. That’s all he wants from his wife Sue and their three children. Maybe some balloons. It is a party after all.

But the children, Emily, Lisa and Michael have other ideas. Lisa is on a mission to save Saba, a detention centre escapee. All they need are the keys to Dad’s holiday home and they’ll be on their way. Michael has found religion and is now following God’s plan. Emily's marriage has fallen apart with new love found in Noeline, a Border Force boat Commander. A simple family birthday get-together, right?

It’s like your worst family Christmas lunch where deeply held beliefs are pulled apart and long-held resentments resurface. Crackling dialogue, perceptive insight and fierce humour that skewers hypocrisy. Classic Williamson!

TMP's production will be directed by David Runnalls.
