Tom is a World War I veteran who maintains a lighthouse off the shore of Australia with his wife Isabel, a woman desperate to have a baby.

King Lear in Brooklyn: An Evening with Michael Pennington

Sunday, 4th June 2017, 19:00

St Peter's Church, Oundle, PE8 4AL

Come and hear one of the world’s leading Shakespearean actors, Michael Pennington who appeared triumphantly as King Lear in New York in 2014, talk about his latest book for one evening only in Oundle.

King Lear in Brooklyn, published in June 2016, is Pennington’s meditations on grappling with Shakespeare’s greatest role, and gives a fascinating insight into the punishing mental and physical impact the role can have on those who are brave enough to take on the challenge.

Pennington examines the relationships between the cast and the characters they play, and explores the director’s approach to Lear and that of the other actors. We see the production develop and unfurl through the eyes of an English actor playing the lead in an otherwise all-American cast.

Funny, personal and deeply honest, Pennington’s account is also probing and scholarly - there is no greater insight into Shakespeare’s greatest role. This is the work of one of our most sublime actor-writers at the top of his game.

Michael Pennington has played Hamlet, Timon of Athens, Berowne, Angelo, Richard II, Coriolanus, Macbeth, Henry V and Leontes in The Winter’s Tale. Together with director Michael Bogdanov, he founded the English Shakespeare Company in 1986 and was its Joint Artistic Director until 1992.

In April 2004 he became the second actor to deliver the British Academy’s annual Shakespeare lecture. The lecture was entitled Barnadine's Straw: The Devil in Shakespeare's Detail.

QUEEN OF KATWE (PG)

Wednesday, 7th June, 7:45pm

Stahl Theatre, PE8 4EJ

Cast: Lupita Nyong'o, David Oyelowo, Madina Nalwanga
Director: Mira Nair
Release: 2016
Runtime: 2hr 4min

Queen of Katwe is the colourful, true story of a 10-year-old girl selling corn on the streets of rural Uganda whose world changes rapidly when she is introduced to the game of chess. Life for Phiona Mutesi’s family is a constant struggle. When she meets Robert Katende, a soccer player turned missionary who teaches local children chess, she is captivated and immediately shows potential. Recognising her natural aptitude and the fighting spirit she has inherited from her mother, Katende begins to mentor Phiona, but her mother is reluctant to provide any encouragement, not wanting to see her daughter disappointed.

‘If you want to see film stardom look as easy as laughter, watch Lupita Nyong’o and David Oyelowo in Queen of Katwe. The twosome give Mira Nair’s rainbow-toned pick-me-up about a young Ugandan chess prodigy exactly the magnetic charge it needs to stick.’ Robbie Collin, The Telegraph

"New" Nature Writing Workshop with Bridget Holding

Friday, 9th June 2017, 18:30

The Kingfisher Café
Barnwell Country Park, Barnwell Rd, Oundle, PE8 5PB

Tickets: £16

Bridget is a tutor in creative writing for the University of Exeter, as well as a writer, and psychotherapist. She also runs Wild Words which explores the connections between the writer, their words and the natural world.

Nature writing is now one of the fastest growing genres; the new generation of nature writers are selling like hot cakes. Come and find out about the market, and how to write for it.

It’s no longer the idealised rural life and landscapes of the pastoral poetry tradition. It’s raw, edgy, groundbreaking, thought-provoking, politically challenging, and society changing. It takes in poetry and prose, fiction and non-fiction. It fuses nature writing, travel writing, philosophy and psychology. Its writers heal and find meaning through contact with nature, and so do its readers.

"With her focus on learning from nature, and the embodied, holistic experience of the storyteller, university tutor and psychotherapist Bridget Holding is revitalising traditional creative writing teaching." The London School of Economics Literary Festival 2017

Bridget is a former screenwriter, whose articles have appeared in Writing Magazine and The Psychotherapist, among other publications. She is also a UKCP registered psychotherapist. She’s a former associate lecturer for the Open University, and has been a tutor of creative writing for the University of Exeter since 2008.

The Toll

9th June

By Luke Wright

After the Fringe First-winning success of What I Learned from Johnny Bevan, Luke Wright is back with a stunning new spoken word show - The Toll.

Fresh from supporting John Cooper Clarke on tour, Wright is here to subject the English language to a series of degrading yet delightful tricks, all for your amusement.

The poems in The Toll tour the flat-roofed pubs and half-bought couches of Brexit Britain. They struggle with doubt, duty and a score of half-cut nights spent shouting impotently at Question Time.

Spend an evening with a raconteur at the top of his game as he spits out visceral, inventive verse that sweats, bleeds and sings.
