Habeas Corpus

Habeas Corpus

Habeas Corpus


Directed by Emily Jayne Grant


Assisted by Hannah Byrne and Lexie Ward


This amateur production is presented by special arrangement with SAMUEL FRENCH LTD.


'Habeas Corpus', Alan Bennett's first play is a comedy set in Brighton in the 1960's. Here the lust and longing of the permissive society has well and truly taken hold of the apparently respectable Wicksteed Family.


With a succession of characters ranging from a rampant doctor and a randy vicar to a frustrated flat-chested spinster and a baffled domestic cleaner, this rollicking farce is a saucy and English as a seaside post card.

Leviathan

Leviathan

LEVIATHAN follows Ahab, a ship captain hell-bent on capturing the white whale: Moby Dick, a beast as vast and dangerous as the sea itself, yet serene and beauti-ful beyond all imagining. Ahab’s crew are drawn into the unhinged charisma of their captain, blindly following him on his perilous adventure towards almost certain destruction.

Multi-award winning choreographer James Wilton re-imagines Herman Melville’s seminal novel, Moby Dick.


Featuring a cast of 6, Wilton’s trademark blend of athletic dance, martial arts, capoeira and partner-work, LEVIATHAN will have you on the edge of your seat. It will leave you gasping for air under the sheer ferocity of movement, all accompa-nied by a powerful electro-rock soundtrack by Lunatic Soul.

LEVIATHAN is man versus nature; be careful what you fish for.


After graduating from London Contemporary Dance School in 2009 James founded James Wilton Dance. Since, James’ work has toured to South Korea, China, the USA, Dubai, India, Germany, Austria, Poland, Switzerland, Malta, Italy, Spain, France, Sweden and Denmark and has also won awards at the Hannover, Bern and Masdanza Choreography competitions, as well as the Sadler’s Wells Global Dance Contest. James’ most recent work Last Man Standing toured to over 60 ven-ues since its creation in 2014 and has been seen by over 15,000 people. In 2013 James was commissioned to choreograph a work for 50 professional dancers for performance at the opening and semi-final ceremonies of the Rugby League World Cup. The work was seen by over 110,000 people. As well as his works for his own company James has created works for Scottish Dance Theatre, Opera Graz, Ballett Hagen, Tanz Compagnie Giessen, Verve, EDge and many other University perfor-mance groups.


Commissioned by: The Barbican Theatre, Plymouth University, Plymouth Culture and Ocean City Festival, Swindon Dance, The Place, Blackpool Grand, Barnsley Civic, The Gulbenkian and BBC Performing Arts Fund, with support from Arts Council England, Grants for the Arts.

It’s a dismal day at the Addams family’s manse, with the ever-approaching storm clouds reflecting the gloomy atmosphere that has beset the household.  Daughter Wednesday, now eighteen years old, has found herself experiencing a surprising new sensation, one that frightens both her and her family: she has fallen in love. The object of her affections, comes from a seemingly normal family, and he and his parents Mal and Alice are on their way to the Addams’ estate to become better acquainted with the family over dinner. Brother Pugsley, who has been largely ignored since Wednesday’s involvement with Lucas, begins to miss the attention his sister previously paid to him and pleads with her to torture him once more. Meanwhile, mother Morticia finds herself conflicted over her ever-maturing daughter’s newfound feelings, while oblivious father Gomez simply wishes things would remain the way they were. As they learn to relate to the Beinekes and cope with Wednesday’s romance, one thing is certain: the Addams family will never be the same.
