Week Commencing 4th November

Get it Booked

Mon 4th Nov- Sat 9th Nov- A Woman of No Importance- Norwich Theatre Royal

So this week we welcome the Irish talent of Oscar Wilde to Norwich’s premier stage. A story that premiered in 1893 at the Haymarket Theatre London and a whole century later it’s still being performed. Of course Oscar Wilde has always been a draw for the theatre crowd always remembered for his play’s, The Picture of Dorian Gray and of course his decline. A man who was arrested and had to leave the country in exile for the same freedom many men are allowed to enjoy today.

However this blog is about the theatre so lets concentrate on A Woman of No Importance. Like Wilde’s other society plays it satirizes the upper class society of England. In this story we find a younger American Woman an English Lord and an innocent young man joining them in the English countryside. The question that hangs over the play should you tell the truth if it risk’s social ruin.

Here in Norwich with an all star cast including Emma Amos (Goodnight Sweetheart) and Liza Goddard (Skippy the Bush Kangaroo, Midsomer Murders) there has never been a better time to swat up on the works of Oscar Wilde.

One to Watch

Wednesday 6th November- Talking Taboos- Norwich Arts Centre

So for our one to watch section this week we have a series of monolouges covering addiction, alcoholism, grief, infertility and domestic abuse. Presented as a radio drama they aim to tackle the way silence makes societies stigmas and anxieties worse with the ultimate goal to simulate discussion about these subjects that are often kept private.

This event is free to attend and the evening will include excerpts from some of the actors and some presentations from mental health advocates. In a society where social media makes us believe were free to express ourselves this only becomes a reality if we can talk  about the things that we don’t really want to which is why an evening like this is so important.
