Particular Theatre Company @ The Bike Shed Theatre in Exeter - May Newsletter

May 2010 – Newsletter 6

Dear Particular Friend,
Spring is bringing with it petals, sun, prime ministerial debates and a thrilling line-up of entertainment at the Bike Shed Theatre.

To add some joy to this Bank Holiday weekend we are having a three-day-wonder special offer which will end on Tuesday 3rd of May, read on for more details.

We hope you have all been enjoying the sunshine and will be as excited as we are about what’s going to be hitting our stage over the coming month.

All the best,

David, Fin and Debs


We have two very exciting theatre companies gracing our stage over the coming month;

No Cut Theatre Company will be performing an adaptation of Miss Julie by August Stringberg. This will be No Cut’s first production; the company formed whilst treading our Bike Shed boards for a short play in February 2010. Their aim is to breathe new life into classical text, making it relevant to today’s world.

The Theatre Alchemists will be are bringing us an adaptation of Philip Pullman’s short novel Clockwork. Formed in 2007 The Theatre Alchemists debuted with a rendition of The Princess Bride and have since created works that focus on story telling which will make both children and adults leave the theatre with a smile.

Miss Julie by August Stringberg at the Bike Shed Theatre from the 4th to the 8th of May, start 7.30pm.
As Midsummer Eve celebrations take place on a country estate, the landowners daughter Julie plays a dangerous game with her fathers manservant Jean. But is it a game she can win?
No Cut Theatre presents a powerful new version of August Strindberg's Miss Julie, which explores the themes of class, equality, power and sex.

 Clockwork by Philip Pullman at the Bike Shed Theatre from the 11th to the 22nd of May, start 7.30pm.
Strange tales are told of the events in a little german town in winter - sinister strangers, devilish knights and clockwork hearts. But it's all just a story isn't it? But just like clockwork, once you've wound up a story and set it going, it will run to it's end, no matter where that leads...
With live music, puppetry projection and storytelling, The Theatre Alchemists bring Philip Pullman's much loved "Clockwork" to the stage. And now it's all wound up, we can begin...


Our next in house production has us all raring to go. Beanfield is a new play by Bristol playwright Shaun McCarthy and will be showing at the Bike Shed Theatre from the 1st of June to the to the 19th of June 2010. It will then be transferring to the Tobacco Factory in Bristol from the 24th of August for a two week run.

Produced to coincide with the 25th Anniversary of the Battle of Beanfield, this beautifully poetic play uses the battle as a backdrop to tell a compelling love story as well as reminding us of the horrific events that took place in the not so distant past.

Starring Ben Crispin, Katie Villa, Eli Thorne, Sam Morris and Georgie Reynolds, Beanfield will once again showcase the work of our top class production team. This is a Particular show that just can’t be missed!


To give you something to look forward to when you get back into the office on Tuesday morning, we are having a half price sale on all our tickets over this Bank Holiday weekend.
