By Thomas Eccleshare
Presented by Dancing Brick and Paul Jellis
with Tobacco Factory Theatres and Bush Theatre
Directed by Valentina Ceschi

A reclusive children's writer becomes wildly successful. Her books are treasured across the country. But when a troubling narrative starts to unfold, we find ourselves asking: what matters more, the storyteller or the story?

Brilliantly imaginative and theatrically original, Heather is a short, sharp play about language, prejudice and the power of stories. Thomas Eccleshare is the Verity Bargate Award-winning writer of Pastoral and the co-artistic director of Arches Brick Award-winning company Dancing Brick.

Nadar was the first great portrait photographer, a pioneering balloonist, the first person to take an aerial photograph and launch an air mail service, he was one of the first celebrity artist-entrepreneurs. A kind of 19th-century Andy Warhol, he knew everyone worth knowing and photographed them all, leaving for posterity psychologically compelling portraits of Manet, Sarah Bernhardt, Delacroix, Daumier and countless others - a priceless panorama of Parisian celebrity.

Nadar became known to all of Europe and even across the Atlantic after he launched "The Giant," a hot air balloon as tall as a twelve-story building, the largest of its time. His ballooning exploits, which include a catastrophic crash that made headlines around the world, inspired his friend Jules Verne create one of his most dynamic heroes.

The Great Nadar illuminates a larger-than-life figure, a visionary whose outsized talent and canny self-promotion put him way ahead of his time.

Adam Begley is the author of Updike (Harper, 2014). He was the books editor of the New York Observer from 1996 to 2009. His writing has appeared in The New York Times, The Paris Review, The Guardian, The London Review of Books, and The Times Literary Supplement.

This Oscar nominated film tells the true story of five-year-old Saroo who gets lost on a train which takes him thousands of miles across India. He survives alone on the streets of Calcutta where he is eventually adopted by a family and taken to live with them in Australia. Then, at the age of 25 and with just a few memories of his childhood, he determines to find his family and return to his first home.

'A deeply empathetic performance from Dev Patel and an unflinching view of child poverty on the streets of Calcutta provide a winning edge to Lion.' Kevin Maher, Times

Director: Raoul Peck
Release: 2016
Runtime: 1hr 33 min

"The story of the negro in America is the story of America - it is not a pretty story." In the wake of Black Lives Matter and Obama’s presidency, this powerful film uses the words and ideas of American writer James Baldwin to produce a cinematic version of the book he never completed. It is a visceral narration about race in America that tracks the lives and assinations of Baldwin’s friends: Martin Luther King Jr, Malcolm X and Medgar Evers. Though partly rooted in the struggle for equality in the 50s and 60s, this film is about what it means to be black in America today.

Release: 2016
Runtime 2hr 7 min

Based on a best-selling and groundbreaking book by Margot Shetterley, this movie tells the hitherto forgotten story of three black women in America and their stunning contributions to the sixties Space Race, at a time when the USA was falling behind the Soviets. Shocking in its portrayal of everyday segregation - you won’t forget the coffee pot or that long walk in those shoes - this movie tells its story in an accessible and uplifting way. Kevin Costner and a scary Kirsten Dunst do a good job in support while the three leads steal the show.

Presented by Paul Jellis and Katie Bonna
in association with Soho Theatre
Directed by Joe Murphy

Fringe First winner Katie Bonna is giving a TED talk on the science of lying. Well, that’s not quite true. TED haven’t actually asked her to do one - yet.

In a comic exploration of her past mistakes and inevitable future disasters, Katie unpicks how everyday lies can lead to a world of Trump and Brexit. A fearlessly honest show for the post-truth era.

Dirty Great Love Story, co-written and performed with Richard Marsh, won a Fringe First in 2012, and Katie was also nominated for Best Actress by The Stage.

STAHL THEATRE
West St, Oundle, PE8 4EJ

Cast: Tom Hanks, Aaron Eckhart, Laura Linney
Director: Clint Eastwood
Release: 2016
Runtime: 1hr 36 mins

The story of the amazing forced landing of US Airways flight 1549 onto the Hudson River following a bird strike immediately after takeoff. The 'landing' was well reported, so the film focuses more on the subsequent publicity and investigation. The battle between Captain Chesley Sullenberger and the Safety Board to prove accident or pilot error yields a typically strong performance from Tom Hanks under Clint Eastwood's directorship. The film uncovers the fear and self-doubt inside a man who would never accept being defined as a hero.

‘Sully is a beautifully balanced, classily nuanced and hugely engaging film that avoids all the clichéd pitfalls it could have slipped into.’ Simon Thompson, IGN

Ingrid Coleman writes letters to her husband, Gil, about the truth of their marriage, but instead of giving them to him, she hides them in the thousands of books he has collected over the years. When Ingrid has written her final letter she disappears from a Dorset beach, presumed drowned, leaving behind her husband, and her two daughters, Flora and Nan.
Twelve years later, Gil thinks he sees Ingrid from a bookshop window, Flora, who has existed in a limbo of hope and grief, imagination and fact, wants answers. She returns home to care for her father and to try to finally discover what happened to Ingrid, not realising that what she’s looking for is hidden in the books that surround her.

Scandalous and whip-smart, Swimming Lessons holds the Coleman family up to the light, exposing the mysterious truths of a passionate and troubled marriage.

Claire’s short stories have been published in many literary journals and shortlisted in prizes. Baker, Emily and Me, won the 2014 BBC Opening Lines competition and my story, A Quiet Tidy Man, won the Royal Academy and Pin Drop short story award 2016.

Claire is the author of Swimming Lessons (published 2017), and Our Endless Numbered Days (2015) which won the 2015 Desmond Elliott Prize for debut fiction and was a 2016 Richard and Judy Book Club Pick.

Denial recounts the true story of Deborah Lipstadt's legal battle for historical truth against the notorious Holocaust denier David Irving, who accused her of libel when she denounced him in her acclaimed book, Denying the Holocaust: The Growing Assault on Truth and Memory. With the burden of proof in English defamation law falling upon the defendant, it was up to Lipstadt and her legal team to prove the essential truth that the Holocaust occurred. With a screenplay by David Hare this is gripping courtroom drama at its best.

‘One of the most spectacular aspects of the film are the court hearings as they are simultaneously almost unbelievable and yet lifted, verbatim, from the records.’ Lochley Shaddock, Filmlink

A deeply moving portrait of a community in East London living on the Haggerston Estate - built on land that was originally part of the estate of the astronomer Edmond Halley, later demolished and recreated in the 1930s as a model housing estate for London’s working class. The estate’s constituent blocks are named after characters from Samuel Richardson’s Clarissa. The film mixes lyricism, literary recreation, gritty realism and music. It is poignant and real, deeply felt and important... a paean to survival, dignity, solidarity, a paean to a community in the face of erosion.

‘An enthralling and uplifting celebration of the resilience of humanity in flux.’ Andrew Kottin

The boys steal two bikes and go on a road trip hoping to find the missing bale which they can sell so as to escape their troubled home lives...But Sergeant Healy is in hot pursuit.

‘It's the most perceptive comic portrait of the adolescent male since The Inbetweeners, but with a naturalism that is unexpectedly disarming.’ Wendy Ide, Observer

Cast: Sherwan Haji, Sakari Kuosmanen
Director: Aki Kaurismäki
Release: 2017
Runtime: 1hr 38 min
In Finnish, English, Arabic, Swedish (Subtitled)

If you want escapism far away from La La Land, Kaurismäki, the Finnish master of melancholy wit is your man. His world is a place where jobs are a barely tolerated necessity, everybody smokes and drinks, 1950s/60s vintage clothes, cars, bars and uniforms are preferred; things go off at half-cock and are met with deadpan responses and biting remarks. It’s an enjoyable place to escape to, even though you have to be tough to inhabit it. Night-time mood lighting out of Edward Hopper paintings predominates and, just as in old westerns, there are men and women of honour and generosity, and some who have none.

‘[Kaurismäki's] new feature...is a typically deadpan and brilliantly observed comic study of the plight of a fictional asylum seeker in Finland’. Geoffrey Macnab,The Independent

Dr Jekyll & Mr Hyde

Monday, 20th November

By Robert Louis Stevenson
Directed and adapted for the stage by Nick Lane
Music by Tristan Parkes
Performed by Blackeyed Theatre

Doctor Henry Jekyll is a good man. Successful within his field and respected by his peers, he’s close to a neurological discovery that will change the face of medical science forever. However, his methods are less than ethical, and when a close friend and colleague threatens to expose and destroy his work, Jekyll is forced to experiment on himself, whereupon something goes very wrong... or very right. And suddenly Jekyll has a new friend, the brutal Edward Hyde.

A thrilling adaptation of Robert Louis Stevenson’s dark psychological fantasy, The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde immerses you in the myth and mystery of 19th Century London’s fog-bound streets where love, betrayal and murder lurk at every chilling twist and turn. Gripping, stylish and thought-provoking, this is unmissable theatre.

Go on... treat your dark side!

Three popular classics can be heard in the orchestra’s annual autumn concert in St Peter’s Church, Oundle. Verdi’s stirring Overture ‘The Force of Destiny’ reached a wide audience as the sound track for the films ‘Jean De Florette’ and ‘Manon Des Sources’ - and more recently in an advert for lager! Then Mozart’s beautiful Clarinet Concerto will be performed by Marie Lloyd, one of the UK’s leading clarinetists, and a member of the Chamber Orchestra of Europe. The immediate inspiration for our final piece, Symphonie Fantastique, was the composer’s infatuation with the Irish Shakespearean actress Harriet Smithson. When Berlioz saw her in Paris in the roles of Ophelia and Juliet he declared 'I will marry that woman and on that drama, I will write my greatest symphony'. His Symphonie Fantastique is a tour de force for the orchestra with the 'March to the Scaffold' and 'The Witches' Sabbath' among the highlights.

1940, London, the Blitz. With the country’s morale at stake, Catrin, an untried screenwriter is hired to provide "a woman’s touch" and, with a makeshift cast and crew, work under fire to make a film to lift the nation’s flagging spirits. Along with fellow screenwriter Buckley, and eccentric former matinee idol Ambrose Hilliard, the trio set out to make a film that will warm the hearts of the nation. Based on Lissa Evans’ novel, Their Finest Hour and a Half, this is a witty, romantic and moving portrayal of a young woman finding her way, and voice, in the mayhem of war and the movies!

Rock legend Ian Anderson of Jethro Tull will be performing The Christmas Jethro Tull concert at Peterborough Cathedral.

With much good humour and good cheer, Ian Anderson and his band will perform some of the more festive numbers from the prodigious Jethro Tull back catalogue, alongside other Christmas music and readings. There is also the promise of the odd surprise guest joining the line-up on the evening.

Ian Anderson is famed as the man who brought the flute to rock music. He maintains a busy touring schedule, often ending the year with yuletide concerts in cathedrals and churches. The self-professed non-believer nonetheless claims a huge affinity for the deeds and traditions of Christianity and this is his way of showing his support.

Thanks to Ian Anderson's generosity, all the proceeds of this concert will support the upkeep of this ancient and beautiful cathedral.

Our Young Soloists’ Concert includes three terrific brass concertos and a number of American pieces. It doesn’t get more American than Gershwin’s 'Rhapsody in Blue' and those of you who came to our recent ‘Post Cards from America’ concert will share our excitement about hearing more music by Márquez - this time an arrangement of the Conga! Starting this concert, is the premiere of ‘The Irish Brigade’ by local composer George Brown - the American connection being that these troops fought at Gettysburg.

Our Season's Finale takes us from Shakespeare's (and Leicester's) famous King in Walton’s 'Prelude to Richard III' to the emotion of Mozart’s dark and brooding 'Piano Concerto No. 20' with Anne Bolt as soloist. Mozart's D minor piano concerto is one of contrasts. The drama of the first movement is followed by the sublime Romance and then the lively Finale. The programme ends with the music Arthur Bliss wrote at the height of his powers in 1937 for his ballet ‘Checkmate’, which depicts the moves of Bishops, Knights, Kings and Queens as they clash in a dramatic game of chess. It is considered a cornerstone of the British ballet repertoire.
