Saffron Walden Tourist Office
Pantaloons musicians

Touring company The Pantaloons have two open-air shows next month in Saffron Walden. On Saturday, August 6, they present The Canterbury Tales in Bridge End Gardens. This is young persons’ version with puppetry and poetry, music and magic, talking chickens and burnt bottoms (probably of the humans). It’s been described as fast-paced and funny and pure medieval mayhem for all the family. Tickets are £13.50 for adults, £8 children, family £37.

This is far and away the best production Cambridge Arts Theatre has staged this year and possibly the funniest and slickest in its 80-year history.

Phyllis Logan, beloved on our television screens as housekeeper Mrs Hughes in Downton Abbey and before that as Lady Jane Felsham in Lovejoy, returns to the stage this month starring in Noel Coward’s Present Laughter.

Juliette Burton

There’s whacky, zany, just plain daft – but also inspired and ingeniously wonderful. There’s experimental theatre and there’s experimenting with theatre.

Lady Anna

A girl who is a lady should never marry a man who is not a gentleman.

Lady Anna

Lady Anna: All at Sea is an eloquently written, beautifully acted, tightly directed costume drama that engages and delights.

King Lear is at the Cambridge Arts Theatre this month

A female soldier stands centre stage, aims her rifle at the audience and fires. This is the startling, if puzzling, opening of the new production of King Lear. The shooter is in fact Cordelia, the young daughter of the mythical monarch of Britain. She will (spoiler alert!) come to a sticky end as do all but two of the characters in Shakespeare’s very strange, very dark, very long play.

It’s July 1945 and the night of the Labour landslide. In the kitchen of the house of a Labour peer, the chauffeur picks up a bottle of wine and says: “It’s like Churchill, robust, full-bodied and finished.”
