06/07/2017 to 09/09/2017 AGATHA CHRISTIE'S SPIDER'S WEB - DIRECTED BY BRIAN BLESSED
 THE MILL AT SONNING

Suppose I were to come downstairs one morning and find a dead body lying here, what would I do? So wonders Clarissa. And lo and behold, as is the way with all good Agatha Christie thrillers, she soon finds out. Clarissa has a vivid imagination but not even she could be prepared for the moment she stumbles upon a bloody corpse. Desperate to dispose of the body before her husband comes home with an important foreign politician - a man on his way to secret talks at 10 Downing Street! - Clarissa persuades her three house guests to become accessories and accomplices. But then the web of deceit becomes even more tangled as a mysterious phone-call tips off the police and brings the determined Inspector Lord to the scene.

11/07/2017 to 03/08/2017 TWELFTH NIGHT - WATERMILL THEATRE ON TOUR PRODUCTION
 THE WATERMILL - WEST BERKSHIRE PLAYHOUSE, NEWBURY

The Watermill has become known around the world for its bold, ensemble driven approach to presenting Shakespeare. For our anniversary year we celebrate this rich history by presenting a brand new production of a play that balances comedy, romance and tragedy in equal measure. Bohemian, outlandish, isolated: Illyria is a land where everyone has lost something and they will use any means to survive. Viola is washed ashore. Compelled to survive in a mysterious ethereal land, she disguises herself as Cesario to serve the solitary Duke Orsino. What follows is a tale of mistaken identities, seduction and transformation, leading to a complex love triangle and the potential destruction of all propriety. This production is reimagined in the 1920s where prohibition is rife and Europe is still reeling in the wake of war.

24/07/2017 to 02/09/2017 LONDON CALLING - A SOLO EXHIBITION BY CATHY READ

London Calling London is a place like no other. London draws out all kinds of people. London draws out all kinds of places. London draws out all kinds of buildings. All wish to make their mark. Architecture is a testimony to these dreams, made into reality by fair means or foul. Some are glorious in their shiny splendour. Others sadly neglected and abandoned, knocked down and built over. London is constantly changing, so any painting is a snapshot in time. Imagine these snapshots shrouded in an air of mystery and excitement. Spontaneous yet controlled. Are you ready to look at London in an entirely new manner? Capture that sense of wonder with Artist Cathy Read’s architectural creations. Viewing is by appointment only.
