Nude with Violin
Following the success of our 2009 production of Noel Coward's I'll Leave It to You, (click here for Benedict Nightingale's review in The Times) we are proud to announce that our next production will be another rarely performed play by Coward: Nude with Violin: Upstairs at the Gatehouse, 9th-28th July 2013.
Nude with Violin is a light comedy from 1956, which shows Coward's sharp satirical eye for "modern" art, and the price placed on the work of certain painters in the artistic marketplace. Its first London production ran for over a year, with three different leading men, John Gielgud, Robert Helpmann and Michael Wilding.
The Social Climber
Our 2011 production was a new translation of Molière's Le Bourgeois gentilhomme. Paddy Gormley's adaptation, The Social Climber, makes this rarely performed (outside France) play accessible to 21st Century English-speaking audiences for the first time.
The playscript is published by Logos, and copies are available via this website. Click here for further information.
