She Stoops to Conquer – Rehearsal Diary 3

Kate Hardcastle is ready for marriage, and she will not allow the timidity of her prospective lover to thwart her plans. I am very much enjoying bringing to life this seemingly demure, but rather scheming, young lady who is used to getting her way. She has set her romantic sights on Mr Marlowe, who proves a bit of a challenge, but you can bet she will find a way to win his affections!

Waiting for Godot: The most significant English play of the 20th Century comes to Harlow

SAMUEL BECKETT’S 60-year-old masterpiece, Waiting for Godot, is coming to the Harlow Playhouse for three nights only.

Living With Luke author reflects on his plays’ success

LIVING With Luke, the play based on a father’s blog about his relationship with his autistic son, put on two sold-out performances at Burnt Mill Academy with UK autism ambassador Anna Kennedy in attendance.

Review: Double bill by Moot House Players

IN these austere times, value for money is a much welcome commodity. To get value AND a great night of entertainment, is even better. Last weekend the Moot House Players did just that with not one, but two plays, all for a single admission charge. Both were very different pieces, each with a different cast (although Players regular Michael Branwell not only directed the first and appeared in the second, but translated both from their original German into English).

Review: Harlow Theatre Co: Ensemble Shakespeare at its finest

THERE IS a good reason why most amateur theatre companies do not attempt Shakespeare: It is very hard to do. So it is a measure of the quality of the work of the Harlow Theatre Company that they not only attempted As You Like It but they produced a wonderful, vivacious, pitch perfect performance at the Victoria Hall Theatre on Wednesday night.

Stop and see the Travelling Man at Moot House

NEXT up for the verstalie Moot House Players is a double-bill of single act plays, playing from the 10th until the 12th of July. I have been lucky to have seen both shows in a sneak preview this week and I can confidently say that, for a critic who is very critically and fairly cynical over a large proportion of things, especially theatre, I enjoyed both!

The Unimaginatively Titled Improvised Comedy Show…………..

FOR one night only, the cream of Harlow’s performing talent, come together to battle it out for comedy supremacy! There will be no script or idea how the night will pan out because it is up to you, the audience, what we will perform!

As You Like Like It as you have never seen it….

WE implore you to look in on this promo video for the upcoming production of As You Like It by Harlow Theatre Company.

Harlow Theatre Company to take on Shakespeare

Rosalind, dynamic, affectionate and intelligent and Orlando, strong willed, delicate and courteous, are banished from their respective oppressive courts and run for their lives to the Forest of Arden where they discover an unforeseen and wonderful freedom… and it is there that their love story unfolds. But will they find true love? What awaits them in this pastoral idyll?
Come and meet the hilarious Touchstone, the faithful Celia, the down to earth Audrey, the calculating Phebe, the desperate Silvius and the melancholic Jaques along with many more colourful characters.

Review: Moot House Players: Living Together warms the room

THE technical crew of the show had put together a simple, but effective, set which clearly signified where and when the action took place. The fact that the props and set were assembled and put together largely by members of the cast highlights the strength of the Moot House Players in working together, with everyone getting involved not just on stage but behind the scenes as well.

Living Together will be perfect harmony for Moot House Players

A spokesperson said: “The experienced hand and eye of Jon McNamara has brought innovative casting and a wealth of directorial experience. Rehearsals are galloping along and this promises to be one of the most lively Aykbourn’s we’ve done, so come to Moot Hall, 8th – 10th May and celebrate with us the playwright’s 75th year.

Harry’s Blog: Amateur dramatics making a scene in Harlow

THEY say that the main difference between amateur and professional theatre is that professionals rehearse for days and play for months, whilst amateurs rehearse for months and play for days. In Harlow, we are blessed with two excellent amateur dramatic companies in the Moot House Players and the Harlow Theatre Company.

Review: Moot House Player’s “Earnest” wins plaudits

THE latest production by the Moot House Players was the Oscar Wilde classic, The Importance Of Being Earnest. The Players have a local, and even international, reputation for wonderful theatrical adaptions. Their work on this production is certainly no exception. Under the excellent directorial guidance of renowned theatrical polymath Henrietta Branwell, the cast were off to a fine start even before the first rehearsal.

Review: Moot House produce a devil of a performance

IT LOOKS like the Moot House Players continue to go from strength to strength as they produced a haunting production of Brian Clemen’s “The Devil At Midnight”. Some may know the work of Brian Clemens through Danger Man and The Avengers (those of us with long memories!).
