Constellations
by Nick Payne, directed by Amanda Dunford

A chance encounter at a barbeque between a beekeeper and a quantum physicist, is there a spark?  They get along, they strike up a relationship or perhaps they don’t.

They go their separate ways, or do they go home together. Any and every future outcome is possible in the multiverse.

This is a play about love and the complexities of navigating relationships.   This play explores the infinite trajectories that love can take to bring people together or pull them apart, through fate, chance and choice. Contains adult themes, mature language, discusses terminal illness and assisted suicide.

Elle Foray and Laura Day take on the parts of Rosie the beekeeper and Marianne the quantum physicist are performing Constellations on Tuesday 30th April, Thursday 2nd May, Saturday 4th May at 7.45pm, Wednesday 8th May and Friday 10th May.

Constellations: Young Adults Performance
by Nick Payne, directed by Morgan Pridmore

A chance encounter at a barbeque between a beekeeper and a quantum physicist, is there a spark?  They get along, they strike up a relationship or perhaps they don’t.

They go their separate ways, or do they go home together. Any and every future outcome is possible in the multiverse.

This play explores the infinite trajectories that love can take to bring people together or pull them apart, through fate, chance and choice. Contains adult themes, mature language, discusses terminal illness and assisted suicide.

Our Young Adults workshop for 16-21 year olds is welcoming new members and is led by Ella Sowton with Leigh Evans. In the lead up to the Constellations audition several of the Young Adults spent time looking at various extracts of the play and they did a fantastic jon, their youth brings another different take on the play and so the Archway Theatre is excited that two pairs of actors from the Young Adults will also have the opportunity to perform Constellations and we hope that our theatre community will also come together to support their one off performances. Liv Brown and Rachel Harrison will be performing on Monday 6th May and Jenna Simmonds-Wood and Lorna Flanagan will be performing on Tuesday 7th May. Tickets for their performances will be priced at £9

Di and Viv and Rose
by Amelia Bullmore, directed by Joy Matthews

Set in 1983, Di and Viv and Rose is an exploration of female friendship.

Three girls meet at university and bond so well that they decide to move in together.

The play follows the ever-changing fortunes of their lives at university and beyond.

Di is a sporty business student, bursting with energy. Viv is an ambitious design student intent on escaping her roots and middle-class Rose is a history of art student, lovable and promiscuous.

It is such a well written play, crackling with wit and poignant observation that few people would fail to enjoy it.

Brassed Off
by Paul Allen, from the screenplay by Mark Herman, directed by Greg Field

Strikes, cost of living crisis, and community morale at an all-time low…except it’s 1994 not 2024. In the Yorkshire mining town of Grimley, bandleader Danny’s dreams of leading the colliery brass band to victory in the national championships at the Albert Hall seem ‘out of tune’ with reality, as workers choose between picket lines and redundancy packages.

But when Flugelhorn playing Gloria returns to her hometown, heads are turned, spirits are raised, and the band get their ‘oompah’ back. But what’s the real reason for Gloria coming back? And can a community that’s fighting to maintain dignity and hope, survive another set of betrayals?

Brassed Off is the acclaimed stage play of the award-winning film. Don’t miss this story of music and the human spirit’s triumph over hardship and despair.
