RAY RACKHAM TAKES LIBERTIES
What he is, however, is a huge fan of Elaine Stritch, Martin Short, Bea Arthur and Hugh Jackman, and in a series of vignettes punctuated by songs from the shows in which he has not starred, he pays tribute to the type of one man and one woman shows that have punctuated the theatre scene for the last twenty years.
Raising much needed funds for London Theatre Workshop’s redevelopment programme, Ray promises to entertain, stumble through a song or two, and lie about himself…a little.
Date: Wednesday 21st June – Saturday 8th July

a new play by Brandon Force, Matthew McCray, and Rowena Russell
“First they let girls join the Scouts, now they’ve created a uniform especially for Muslims. What’s next, atheists!?”
It’s the Summer of 2012. Scout Troop 332 is in training for a competition against hundreds of other troops. The time has come to tighten those woggles and learn some drills! Order quickly deteriorates as the troop’s six scouts drift into playful imaginary escapades, role-playing and games of power. Scouting policies are under attack nationwide, and now this troop’s members are developing some questions of their own.
TRIBE is a new play about the history, principles and values of Scouting, their intersection with national pride and expansion, and their relevance with the youth of today. Created by an international collaboration, the play explores the impact of changes in Scout policies in the UK to support inclusion, gender parity and religion.

Ordinary Days follows the parallel lives of four New Yorkers struggling to find meaning in the madness: Claire, who can’t let go of her past; Jason, determined to begin their future together; Warren, an artist who’s lost his sense of purpose; and Deb, a student who’s lost her thesis notes. It is a witty, poignant, and ultimately very relatable story about human connection and finding beauty in unexpected places. New York Times reviewer Charles Isherwood wrote that “Ordinary Days… captures with stinging clarity that uneasy moment in youth when doubts begin to cloud hopes for a future of unlimited possibility.”
