Richmond Theatre have announced their Autumn season, with shows to cover all tastes from ballet to family shows, plays to sing-a-longs, and tribute acts to Shakespeare. Highlights include:
The Dresser will play at Richmond Theatre in September ahead of its West End run at the Duke Of York’s from 5 October. Renowned as one of Ronald Harwood’s greatest plays, Ken Stott and Reece Shearsmith star in this hilarious and heart-wrenching tale of an ageing actor-manager and his long-suffering, dedicated dresser.
Amanda Holden (recently announced as the Fairy Godmother in the London Palladium’s Cinderella) takes the lead in this wonderfully funny and heart-warming comedy following the lives of seven women and one man learning to dance. The star-studded cast also includes Angela Griffin, Tracy-Ann Oberman, Tamzin Outhwaite and Nicola Stephenson, and is directed by three time Olivier Award-winner Maria Friedman.
A Room With a View
Felicity Kendal, perhaps best known for her performance as Barbara Good in The Good Life, stars in A Room With A View, an elegant comedy written in 1908 by E.M Forster that is widely recognised as one of the finest novels of the twentieth century. The show is directed by Adrian Noble, the Artistic Director of the RSC from 1990-2003 and is the recipient of more than 20 Olivier Award nominations.
The Woman In Black
Currently playing in the West End at the Fortune Theatre, The Woman In Black continues its major UK tour. An eerie thriller based on Susan Hill’s 1983 novel, The Woman In Black features just two main cast members and minimal props to conjure its sense of rising fear and impending doom.
