Teddies, wine and microwave meals – the rehearsal images for My Name is Cathy paint a picture of trying to comfort yourself, which is unsurprising given the play follows a teacher looking back at when everything went wrong. Book your tickets now.
Darkly comedic rise and fall story, My Name is Cathy, which follows a teacher who had it all as she looks back on how it slipped away, comes to the Chapel Playhouse next month as part of the Camden Fringe. Time to book your tickets!
None of the plays would have travelled in quite the same way (to Broadway and back) had it not been for Harriet Walter sticking her colours to the mast from Day One, leading the company as Brutus, Henry IV and now Prospero.
Shakespeare 101: muck/fuck about with it all you like, the poor sod’s well out of copyright, but the acid test for any modern rendering is ‘if you hadn’t seen this play before, would this production tell you the story?’ and the answer to the Donmar’s all-girl Tempest is a big fat no.
The Donmar will break out beyond its Covent Garden home, opening a new, in-the-round, 420-seat temporary theatre at King’s Cross in association with Theatre Tracks, immediately adjacent to King’s Cross station and directly accessible from King’s Boulevard. The Donmar Shakespeare Trilogy, directed by Phyllida Lloyd and starring Harriet Walter in an all-female company will play a 13-week repertory season, from 23 September to 17 December 2016, of three productions – revivals of the sell-out Julius Caesar and Henry IV and a new production of The Tempest, all set in a women’s prison. On special Donmar Shakespeare Trilogy days, all three plays will be performed back to back.
