The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie, by Jay Presson Allen, based on the novel by Muriel Spark.

Miss Brodie is an unconventional teacher in a conventional 1930s Edinburgh school for girls. She teaches her adoring pupils to consider themselves the "creme de la creme" and grooms them to vicariously live out her own thwarted dreams and ambitions, at the same time risking dismissal with her affairs with the married art teacher and timid music teacher. But as the girls grow older and less malleable her plans for them unravel, and a tragic event precipitates her downfall.

Rope

Written by Patrick Hamilton and hosted by Dan Mullings (recently seen as Ali Barber in Woodhouse’s 1001 Arabian Nights). Later turned into a film by Alfred Hitchcock, Rope is the story of two students who become fascinated by their philosophy professor’s ideas about the “innate superiority” of some people over others. Convinced they have found a victim who is inferior to them, they murder him, conceal his body in an unlocked trunk in their apartment, and then throw a dinner party with the trunk as the brazen centerpiece of the living room.

Bent
written by Martin Sherman


Set amidst the decadence and terror of Fascist Germany, the multi award-winning Bent is above all a powerful and moving love story, recounting the fate of three homosexual men during the rise of Nazism. It is a harrowing but inspirational tale of struggle against oppression but ultimately love.

Bent will be Woodhouse Player's late spring production, with audition dates in the new year. Further information will be posted online soon.

Hamlet II
by Perry Pontiac

Just days after the events of Shakespeare's Hamlet (spoiler: everybody dies), the Danish ambassador Seltazar returns to Elsinore. It is up to him and Fornia, the castle librarian, to stop Denmark falling into anarchy with the help of the old king's ghost, a passing Fool and many a hey-nonny-no.
An extremely silly spoof which plays fast and loose with Shakespearean language and stage traditions. Featuring poison! Treachery! Swordplay! And a joke about a hedge.

Within Required Parameters
by Kelly Read

One man’s hospital admission turns into a nightmare. Is it all just an unlikely dream, an uncanny glimpse of what might be or reality creeping in without anyone realising?
Touching, moving and dark with a warning for us all not to take healthcare for granted..

Play choosing for 2014

All members are invited to attend a meeting at 7.30 on Tuesday 8 October in the Welsh Church Hall to choose the plays for our March, Spring and Leytonstone festival slots. Any member can propose a play that they would like to direct. Here is some information for people intending to do so:

The production dates are:

7/8, 14/15 March 30/31 May , 6/7 June 18/19, 25/26 July (subject to dates of Leytonstone Festival)

The March slot is for one-act plays, which we usually also perform at the Waltham Forest Drama Festival the following week. There is also the option, subject to cast and crew availability, of taking shows to the Welwyn Drama Festival in early June. Auditions will take place in mid-late November. Although a programme of one-act plays has separate directors and casts for individual plays, it needs to be produced as a single show wth a shared producer and crew, and simple/shared sets. If wishing to go to a drama festival, the maximum performance length is 55 minutes. This can be a good slot to try out new writing.

The June slot will audition in late February/early March, and start rehearsing after the March one-acts. Is is usually a small-to-medium scale full-length play.

The Leytonstone Festival slot will audition in late March and start rehearsing in April. It is a major showcase for the group's work, usually a medium-to-large scale full-length play. and should aim to be an intelligent crowd-pleaser. Bearing in mind that the hall can get very hot in July, it may be best to avoid shows that involve very heavy costumes!

Any play by an author who died within the last 70 years is still subject to copyright, and performance license fees will be payable. Not all copyright shows are available for amateur performance. Potential directors should confirm that rights are available, and their cost, before putting a play forward. (Play scripts usually contain information about who to contact about rights). Directors should also be able to give some indication of their projected budget.

At the play-choosing potential directors make a short presentation about their play and why they think it would be good for the group to do; we read short extracts from the plays; and there is a chance to put questions to directors and have some general discussion. Please note that there is no "postal voting" at play-choosings. Ths is because it is fairest to choose plays on the basis of all those voting having heard the presentations by, and having an opportunity to question, all potentional directors.

Plays advocated are as follows:

For the One-Act slot:
Hamlet Part II by Perry Pontac (proposed by Helen Thomas)
Say Something Happened by Alan Bennet (proposed by Colin Heinink)
Within Required Parameters by Kelly Read (proposed by Kelly Read)

For May/June & July

Bent by Martin Sherman proposed by Louise Croker
Compleat Female Stage Beauty by Jeffrey Hatcher, proposed by Jeannette Tucker
Journey's End by R C Sherriff proposed by Louise Croker
As You Like It by William Shakespeare proposed by Gill Taylor

30th Anniversary: Quiz Night

Autumn 2013 marks the 30th anniversary of the Woodhouse Players' first production and throught this year we will be holding various events to celebrate this. The first of these will be a Quiz night on 6 Saturday July:

To celebrate 30 years of putting on plays and many after show parties we are hosting a quiz where the main topic will be the history of Woodhouse. The teams will be picked on the night through a randomiser so that the teams have a mix of old and new members.
This will be followed by a bit of a boogie....

For those that have booked, all you need to bring is £10 to cover food and prizes. (And probably some money to buy your drinks from the bar.)

Also, we need help on the day! We will need some hands on deck to help set up tables, music and some lights on the day. So if you are free from about 5pm please come down and help! The more the merrier.

We would like as many former members of the group as possible to take part in our celebrations, and we are also looking for memorabilia of our early productions. If you can help, and/or would like to be involved, please email our anniversary team.

'The Acid Test' by Anya Reiss

"This has been the worst day of my life. So can you please get drunk with me?"
Dana, Ruth and Jess down shots to console the heart-broken, to comfort the anxious and just pass the time. Kicked out from the family home Jess' Dad, Jim, invades the party with just as much recklessness as the girls. There are tears, tantrums and tequila in this excruciatingly accurate play by an award-winning young playwright.

WARNING - Contains very strong language and LOTS of Vodka.

Hosted by Sarah Fox

Tue 30th April 2013, Welsh Church Hall, 7.30pm

Play Choosing

All members are invited to attend a meeting on Tuesday 30 April to choose the plays for our autumn 2013 productions and 2014 panto/Christmas show. Anyone wanting to propose a play should send details (title, author, confirmation that rights are available and cost of rights) to the Chair by Friday 26 April.

General information about how play-choosing meetings work and how to advocate a play is at http://www.woodhouseplayers.co.uk/members_programming.html Additional information about these particular slots is given below:

The September slot is for a studio production and will take place w/c 16 September. Auditions will take place mid-late May and rehearsals will start in early June. A studio production means a small-scale show that needs no scenery (furniture and props are of course allowed) and has simple technical requirements. This is because during the summer we need to free up our technical helpers to work on important maintenance tasks at the hall rather than set-building. To better balance the year and work round other users of the hall we are planning one performance week only. This could include mid-week performances or performances at a venue other then the Welsh Church Hall. A short play would be preferable if mid-week performances are intended, to take account of the need to dismantle the hall after a mid-week performances.

The late autumn slot will take place on 25/26 October and 1/2 November. Auditions will take place in early July and rehearsals will start in late July/early August

The 2014 Panto/Christmas show will take place on 10/11 17/18 January. Auditions will take place late August/early September, and rehearsals will start in late September. If you would like to direct a particular Panto but do not have a script, speak to a member of the Committee and we will help you find one.

Please note that postal voting is not allowed at play-choosing meetings. This because it is fairer for plays to be chosen on the basis of everyone having heard, and had a chance to ask questions of, all potential directors.

Final list of plays advocated:
 
For the September slot:
"The Acid Test" by Anya Reiss advocated by Sarah Fox
 
For the October/November slot:
"The Real Thing" by Tom Stoppard, advocated by James McKendrick
"Pygmalion" by George Bernard Shaw advocated by Cathy Love
 
For the January 2014 slot:

"1001 Nights (and a Matinee)" - a pantomime by tlc Creative, advocated by Elizabeth Braithwaite

The Winslow Boy, by Terence Rattigan, author of Separate Tables, (staged by Woodhouse Players last year)
Hosted by Oliver Clement

The play, first staged in 1946 and set around 1912, is a drama concerned with an extremely respectable middle- class family's struggle to clear the name of the youngest child . He is a naval cadet, who has been unjustly accused of stealing a five shilling postal order - loosely based on a famous real - life case. It relies on strong characterisations of the various family members, including the unyielding father and the feminist daughter, and of the distinguished and charismatic barrister who takes on the case. It has been described thus - 'as well-made an example of a well-made play as you will find anywhere'. The first half of the play ends with a famous succession of dramatic reversals of audience expectations.

"For Services Rendered" by W Somerset Maugham - written in 1932, the play examines the continuing impact of the First World War on a middle class family in a Britain that is now in the grip of the Depression.

The Ardsleys, headed by complacent Solicitor Leonard, live in a small town in Kent that offers few prospects for the young. Son Sydney was blinded during the war and is now a bitter and manipulative invalid, the responsibility for whose care largely falls on his sister Eva, who lost her fiancee in the war and is presumed by the family to be content with her lot as domestic "saint". Middle daughter of the family, Ethel, made an unwise war-time marriage and is now dealing with the consequences. Family friend Collie was laid off from his career in the navy in post-war defence cuts and is now struggling to make a success of civilian life. Only youngest daughter Lois seems to have a chance of escape - by running away with a married man more than twice her age whom she does not love. The play uses all the conventions of the genteel drawing room drama - down to the French Windows and the games of tennis - but turns them into something surprisingly dark and hard-hitting.

Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck

Hosted by Margaret Winniak

A timeless classic set in the American Midwest during the 1930s Depression. It's a story of enduring friendship, of people sticking together no matter what, of hopes and dreams that may never be achieved by individuals, but for a group can become reality.

Themes covered include: sexism - the poor female character doesn't even have a name, but her dreams are equally as important as those of the men; racism - the black labourer cannot sleep in the same large room as the white farm hands; violence; murder; and the group's own form of justice.

Meeting to start planning 30th Anniversary celebration

In Autumn 2013 it will be 30 years since the Woodhouse Players' first production - a play called "Once In A Blue Moon", probably by John Dole* - and we need an enthusiastic and imaginative bunch of people to plan our Anniversary celebrations.

If you can't come then, but would like to be involved, please e-mail the Secretary to be kept informed of dates of future meetings.

* - if anyone knows anything about this play, we'd be interested to find out. The author isn't listed on the website, but a bit of googling suggests this is the most likely candidate.

Hamlet Part II by Perry Pontac

One of Perry Pontac's series of Shakespearean spoofs, Codpieces, Hamlet Part II takes up where Part I leaves off (spoiler alert: everyone is dead) and imagines what happens next. It's very silly, fun to read (it's written in iambic pentameter and fairly bounces along) and works brilliantly whether you're a Shakespeare expert or not. Four parts, 3m 1f.

Glengarry Glen Ross by David Mamet

In the dog-eat-dog world of American real estate four ruthless salesmen are battling it out to win a brand new Cadillac. But in a gloomy Chinese restaurant an underhand plan is hatched to rob the company's head office. David Mamet's masterpiece is packed with intrigue, tension, bombastic egos and short tempers. (Warning: contains very strong language throughout)

Annual General Meeting

The Woodhouse Players' Annual General Meeting will take place at 7.30 pm on Tuesday 15 May in the Welsh Church Hall 879 High Road Leytonstone E11 1HR. All paid-up members are invited to attend. The meeting will receive the annual reports from the Chairman, Secretary and Treasurer, offer an opportunity for members to discuss the group's activities and future plans, and elect the Committee for 2012-13.

This year the Committee elections will be preceded by a vote to amend the Constitution to increase the number of places for ordinary members on the Committee from five to seven. The Quorum for meeting to vote on amending the Constitution is 10 or one third of the membership, whichever is greater. This means that in order to take this step, which is necessary to provide the group with the support it needs to carry on all its desired activities, we need at least 25 members to attend the meeting or submit "postal"/proxy votes.

Members who wish to stand for election for the posts of Chairman, Secretary or Treasurer, or as an ordinary Committee member, should submit their names to the Secretary at least 48 hours before the start of the meeting (ie by 7.30pm on Sunday 13 May.)

The Agenda and details of how to submit "postal"/proxy votes will be emailed to members before the meeting and will also be posted to the website AGM page.

Stage Makeup Workshop

Have you ever been frightened by a tube of lipstick or looked on in puzzlement as your fellow actors started painting their faces with an odd assortment of colours? Have you ever wondered how you, too, can achieve dignified age lines or fantastic cheek bones? If so (or even if not), our own Ceri Wilkinson is hosting a workshop on Stage Makeup, explaining the whys and hows of putting on basic makeup for stage and why everyone needs it, even on smaller stages. As well as instruction there will be plenty of time for hands on experimenting so that you have time to hone your makeup talents! Ceri is also happy to cover specific topics as requested (e.g. facial prosthetics, animals, crepe hair) but please send your requests to Jessie Greer by 28 April. Prices are £5 for members (£10 for non-members) to help cover the cost of supplies. Places are limited so please book online (see below). If you do not wish to book online or have any questions, please email Jessie Greer

Stage Lighting Workshop

Run by Robert Bettelheim. No charge

"The Woodhouse Stage presents some real challenges to the director and the lighting designer. There are things that are easy but might seem really hard, and then some of the most basic things that you'll have seen in the West End are actually really hard in the Welsh Church.

"This workshop is intended to demonstrate stylistic choices in lighting, dramatic effects, and why getting lighting right makes an enormous difference to a scene and its drama.

"Rather than concentrating on the technical side of what lights do what, this little expose should be about how to start designing lighting from the first conception of the play to the refinement of it in the technical rehearsal. I could talk about Freznels, LEDs and the inverse square law, but instead I'm going to point lights at the stage and give people a chance to try things out."

Please email Jessie Greer with any enquiries and to confirm your place.

It Was a Carry On by Anthony Smith (Hosted by Anthony Smith)

It's 1967 and the cast of the movie Carry on Doctor have gathered at the famous Pinewood Studios in London to finish filming some scenes before they break for Christmas. When the cameras stop rolling the relationship between the actors and the ups and downs they have had with each other all come to light.

This new play, written by a Woodhouse member, is full of good old-fashioned humour, bringing to life these great iconic stars of the Carry On films who became so famous around the world.

US and THEM by David Campion (Hosted by Jackie Withnall)

A one-act play written in 1977 which is still regularly seen at drama festivals and can be performed by any number of actors of either sex. It's quite a physical play and I thought it might be fun to actually get up and move around. The dialogue can be divided between the characters in different ways. Characterisation is projected onto the lines. Essentially the story is about two different groups who meet midpoint and how they interact. A Recorder observes the scene and comments on it. Will anyone learn from the notes he has taken?

Sat 21st April 2012, 1.30-5.30pm, Welsh Church Hall

Stage Combat Workshop

Come learn to throw a punch with professional choreographer Alison De Burgh! She has an impressive resume which includes stunt choreography at the National Theatre and RSC. Her most recent work includes the Fight Director for The Lady Killers, which is currently on at the West End. Alison will teach the basic skills of stage combat and there will be plenty of time for partner work in a safe environment to ensure the best learning possible, but also to make things much more fun!

Please make sure to wear comfortable clothes and shoes that you would be comfortable sitting and rolling on the floor in. To cover costs there will be a fee of £12 for members, £20 for non-members (£9 for concessions). Places are limited so please book online (see below).

The Rivals by Richard Brinsley Sheridan

What to do when you're in love with someone who is in love with you, only because they think you're actually someone else? Two young couples, a moralistic widow, an Irish suitor, disguise, intrigue, love letters, Sheridan's rapier wit and satire are the perfect ingredients for this ultimate cocktail of a comedy of manners.

If you're not already familiar with this classic comedy, this is your chance to get to know it ahead of auditions for parts in our July production

Honour by Joanna Murray Smith

First produced in Melbourne in 1995, then at the National Theatre in 2003 and the West End in 2006, this modern classic brings a wrenchingly honest look at a familiar theme - the break up of a 30-year marriage. The play charts the shifting power balance between the four characters: George, the rather pompous literary critic; Honor, who gave up her writing career to to be the devoted wife; their fiesty daugher Sophie; and Claudia, the attractive ambitious young journalist who sets her cap at George. The play explores the nature of love. passion and commitment with honesty and humour and provides four cracking parts for actors.

Special read-through of Goodnight Desdemona (Good Morning Juliet) by Ann-Marie MacDonald

Constance Ledbelly, a drab and dusty academic, deciphers a cryptic manuscript she believes to be the original source for Othello and Romeo and Juliet. She is transported into the plays themselves, visits Juliet and Desdemona, has a hand in saving them from the deaths the Bard had planned for them, and finds out what these women are all about.

In true Shakespearean spirit, Constance plunders the plays and creates something new, all the while engaging in a personal voyage of self-discovery and encountering an abundance of twists, fights, dances, seductions and wild surprises.

The evening will be hosted by Mansoor Mir, who will also be directing the play in September 2012.

The production in September 2012 will be part of the RSC Open Stages scheme. We shall also performing an extract from the play on Thursday 26th September at the Questors Theatre in Ealing as part of the Open Stages Showcase event. The Playreading Pub Night on 24th January will be used to help cast this production. If you are interested in participating in the Showcase (on or off stage), then please do come along. If you can't make it on January 24th, please contact Mansoor to express your interest.

Please note that casting will be re-opened for the main production in September. There will therefore be two further open auditions in the spring (dates to be confirmed).

The Ghost Train by Arnold Ridley

A funny and spooky tale by Arnold Ridley, who later found fame as "Private Godfrey" in Dad's Army. An ill-assorted group of travellers are stranded late at night on a remote Cornish train station which, long ago, was the site of an horrific rail disaster - and which, according to local legend, is now haunted by a ghostly express train that means death to all who see it. . .  Lots of fun parts for actors and actresses of all ages.

Crawl to be Kind by Troy Banyan

Bristol-based playwright Troy Banyan has had plays published by Samuel French or performed at Drama festivals and would welcome feedback on this one. It focuses on PAT, a recently divorced woman who has decided to break away from inner city life and live in more rural surroundings. Because the proceeds from her house sale were not enough to buy the new house alone, she has persuaded her elderly mother MONA to move with in her rather than going through with her plan of moving into Sheltered Housing in the city with some of her friends.

When they arrive at the new house they find a note apparently from the previous occupants to say that while packing up they dropped a tank containing their son’s pet tarantula, which they could not find and could not spend any more time looking for as they were catching a flight to Australia. As Pat is an arachnophobe (‘money spiders bring her out in a cold sweat’), she naturally panics, but unbeknownst to her this is a plot arranged by Mona, partly with the intention of helping Pat to face her arachnophobia but also as revenge for coercing her to into moving in with her. However, with the arrival of some "helpful" neighbours, a health-and-safety-conscious removal man and another arachnophobe from the Electricity Company, things soon get out of hand. . .

Deadline by Robert Shearman

What if... Doctor Who did not materialise as a television series?

Martin Bannister was once a promising young writer, but somewhere along the line everything went wrong. His career is now in tatters, he has a son who hates him, all his wives keep dying in the wrong order, and there's a nasty green stain in his bedroom that could be an alien footprint (or mould). As he looks back on the ruin of his life, he wonders whether it all started with that children's science fiction programme that never got produced. Whatever became of Doctor Who?

Originally released as an audio drama by Big Finish Productions in 2003 (and featuring Sir Derek Jacobi in the lead role) the play effortlessly blends comedy, tragedy, fantasy and mundane reality in order to illustrate Martin's rapidly deteriorating mental state.
