The Books The Thing – Shakespeare’s Hamlet

Look out for a night of professional theatre in some of our libraries towards the end of May. New young company Librarian Theatre are touring libraries throughout the region with an innovative production, specially designed to perform among the bookshelves.The Books The Thing

“The Book’s the Thing” is a rapid re-telling of Shakespeare’s Hamlet, newly adapted from Shakespeare’s text by the company’s co-founders Tom Cuthbertson, who directs the production, and Kelly Eva-May, who will play the lead role of Hamlet. It is a fast-paced, hour long play with a cast of three, and promises to be a unique experience!

Review: The Boy I Love by Lynda Bellingham

The Boy I LoveSally Thomas heads off for her first season in repertory as a supporting actress & as Assistant Stage Manager at the beautiful old theatre in Crewe. She quickly learns that actors are adept at stabbing each other in the back!

When her friend Jeremy falls in love with the son of the theatre’s main backer, Sally needs to support him. A shadow falls over the theatre though, a tragedy is gathering pace in the darkness behind the stage.

Well written story of a season in a provincial theatre. Ups & downs of the characters, much deviousness lots of rivalry. Lots of loving, both straight & gay.

Must be based on Lynda’s experiences.

Very enjoyable.
