Handbagged: Thu, 22 Jun 2017 until Fri, 23 Jun 2017

Theatre by the Lake
When Maggie met the Queen. Tea at four. Handbags at dawn. Two icons, one destined to rule, the other to lead. But when the gloves came off, who had the upper hand? Moira Buffini’s sensational comedy looks behind the closed doors of the palace to speculate what really happened when two of the most powerful women in the world clashed. This funny, insightful and brilliantly sharp satire was nominated for an Olivier Award for Best New Comedy in 2015 and went on to be a West End smash hit.

How My Light is Spent: Thu, 22 Jun 2017

Theatre by the Lake
“Kitty, my hands have disappeared.” “Pardon?” Every Wednesday evening, Jimmy calls Kitty. For precisely nine minutes. At £1.20 a minute. Jimmy is 34, lives with his mum and works at Newport’s only drive-through doughnut restaurant. Kitty is a phone sex worker living in the granny flat of a topiary enthusiast. Things were looking up for Jimmy when he met Kitty for the first time, but then he loses his job and starts to feel a strange tingling in his fingers. Kitty’s not a psychologist yet, but she has some theories about why Jimmy has started to disappear. With Kitty giving some life-changing advice and Jimmy trying to reconcile himself to eventual invisibility, this unlikely duo succeed in turning each other’s world upside down. Winner of the Judges’ Award in the 2015 Bruntwood Prize for Playwriting, How My Light is Spent is a funny, hopeful play about loneliness, longing and being left behind. Strong language and sexual references.

Salomé: Thu, 22 Jun 2017

Kirkgate Arts Centre
The story has been told before, but never like this. An occupied desert nation. A radical from the wilderness on hunger strike. A girl whose mysterious dance will change the course of the world. This charged retelling turns the infamous biblical tale on its head, placing the girl we call Salomé at the centre of a revolution. Internationally acclaimed theatre director Yaël Farber (Les Blancs) draws on multiple accounts to create her urgent, hypnotic production on the stage of the National Theatre. "nobody does riveting ritual intensity better than Farber" - The Independent
