Tuesday, 23 July- 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm£6.00 – £8.00
StageWrite, one of Bedford’s annual theatrical highlights, brings you new work selected from emerging and established writers from all over the UK to The Place Theatre for BEDFRINGE 2019.
Four performances will take place as double bills over two nights and will be followed by a question-and-answer session with the writers, directors and actors. Previous plays from the festival have gone on to be developed and performed to sell out audiences at Bedfringe and also in London venues and at Reading Fringe Festival.
Previous audience members have commented:
“StageWrite excelled my expectations; although performances were script in hand, production values were very high and felt like fully rehearsed productions.”
“Wow it’s fantastic and I would love to see more. This is highly professional and innovative drama.”
The Murder of the Servants
by Martin Keady.
Lomax and Hendry serve the King. Their job is to keep him safe and watch over his bedchamber. Lomax is committed to diligence and reputation, while Hendry is, well, a little more laid back. But both know that all hell will break loose if either of them is caught with blood on their hands The Murder of the Servants is the story of Duncan’s servants in Macbeth, framed for the murder of the King.
Play Lady K
by Anne Atkins
The Withers are a clergy family living in a vicarage. Its the weekend of Kate’s hen party and her girlfriends will be staying overnight, as well as one close male friend from university, James, who is required to wear drag for the weekend to pass as a hen. Meanwhile, Kates ultra-respectable fiancee, Robert, has been set up to arrive at the vicarage as the buff butler, from an entirely spurious company called Butlers in Balaclavas so that he wont be recognised, of course. What could possibly go wrong..?!
