New plays for younger audiences
AJTC is a small-scale theatre company based in Guildford which is committed to developing and nurturing new material of the highest quality.
The company returns to The Hawth, Crawley, this month with two very different shows for young and old.
Sat 23 February 11am - The Gardener. Little ones aged 5 – 7 will love this new play with music by Mike Kenny.
Come along and meet Joe, a gardener, who has lost something.
While he is trying to remember what it is he finds himself telling the story of one year - a special year - when he was a young boy.
It is the story of how he became a gardener. It is a story about his forgetful old uncle Harry.
Mike Kenny’s plays for young children are performed around the world, winning many awards including the 2000 Arts Council of England Children’s Writer.
Tickets: £7. Family of four: £25
Sat 23 February 7.45pm - The Tempest. An old man is comatose and near death... the play of The Tempest is his last living second, a time in which his loss is assuaged and his enemies forgiven.
AJTC’s darkly-shaded slant on the drama is directed by Geoff Bullen, Shakespeare expert and specialist in new work for the stage, with an extensive score commissioned from the internationally renowned, award-winning composer Tot Taylor.
With an enchanting mesh of AJTC’s mime, masking, movement, and the music of voice, two actors conjure storms and apparitions, lay bare treasons and counterplot, and finally transport you to a ‘brave new world’ of love and reconciliation. Minimal, magical and not to be missed.
Tickets: £14 (discounts: £12), Out:smart: £8.50
