THE BARN THEATRE CLUB PRESENTS

The best man

BY GLYN MAXWELL

  | 

ORIGINALY DIRECTED BY JON CROKER

 A richly dark and comic tale that absorbs the listener and makes the hairs on the back of your neck stand on end.

10th – 13th December 2020 at 8pm

Duration: 1hrs approx. with no interval.

The Best Man tells the story of Bailey, the best man at his oldest friend’s wedding. In his search for anecdotes to embellish his speech, Bailey has stumbled across a secret so shocking that it changes everything.

Glasses are charged as Bailey replies on behalf of the bridesmaids. At first it’s genial, more about him and his relationship with his old school pal, now his boss, and the boyhood escapades of ‘the alpha boys’. But revenge is sweet, and his revelations are ever more engrossing as the past is unwrapped, the future not so much toasted as roasted. The Best Man is a tale of love and cheating – with a sting.

This production is presented by arrangement with GLYN MAXWELL

THE BARN THEATRE CLUB PRESENTS

CLASS

BY Iseult Golden & David Horan

  | 

DIRECTED BY CORAL WALTON

A heart-breaking but humorous exploration of failing education systems, prejudice and parent-teacher relationships.

19th – 22nd November 2020 at 8pm (Sunday 22nd at 5pm)

Duration: 1.5hrs approx. with no interval.

This beautiful piece is set in the classroom where recently separated parents, Brian and Donna, are confronted with their son’s learning difficulties. Funny, thought-provoking and achingly moving, the play is presented in today’s ‘normal’, and simplicity is key. It will be performed in the Barn Studio but you will see it live streamed, something special and uniquely ‘of the moment’. Presented online on four separate nights, each performance is live and will offer its own individuality. We hope you will join us for this historic venture.

We are of course closely monitoring the COVID-19 situation with regard to live theatre. We are pleased to say we have decided we are able to produce some LIVE theatre directly from the Barn. A live audience is currently not possible, but we will, for the time being, be presenting some productions via the online Zoom Webinar streaming service. Some of our local non-professional theatre friends have already been doing this – namely The Abbey Theatre in St. Albans and the QMT in Hitchin and we’d like to thank them for the help they have given us for our own venture into this arena. We’d also like to congratulate them for their successes!

As soon as the situation allows, we will let everyone know our plans for re-opening. We can’t wait to welcome you all back to the Barn once again and sincerely thank you for your continuing support.

In the meantime, we wish you all well.
