Name a Seat Campaign

London Theatre Workshop has re-located to Leadenhall Market in the heart of the City of London; the only theatre situated within the Square Mile.

Moving from our previous home in Fulham has meant the opportunity to re-launch and re-develop in a brand new bespoke space, which we have designed from the floorboards up! For the past few months we have been busy creating a brand new black box studio space from what was a series of interconnecting conference rooms. Our studio theatre will join bespoke workshop and office space, making London Theatre Workshop a unique destination venue for artists, theatre practitioners and audiences alike.

To celebrate our move to the City and to raise much-needed funds to improve and develop our infrastructure, we are delighted to launch our “Name a Seat” campaign.

Naming a seat is a very personal way for you or your company to contribute to and support London Theatre Workshop and the exciting theatrical hub we are building.

London Theatre Workshop is a not for profit organisation, which is only able to run thanks to the support and commitment of its volunteer team, known as the LTW Family.

Your generous financial donation will enable us to raise much needed core funds to develop the theatre and ancillary spaces, supporting London Theatre Workshop in our mission of finding, developing and producing work of the highest quality, celebrating the fusion between music and drama.

By gifting a seat you are directly contributing to our family’s future and our commitment to being a collaborative working theatre lab which nurtures budding industry talent and provides an opportunity to develop practical skills in all areas of theatrical production.

A name engraved on a long-lasting plaque on one of our seats is:

  • a way of commemorating someone special
  • a distinctive birthday or anniversary gift
  • a token of your appreciation for one or more of our team members
  • an expression of your or your business’ support for London Theatre Workshop

RAY RACKHAM TAKES LIBERTIES

Date: Sunday 20th November
Time: 7:30pm (doors open at 7pm)
Price: £20Ray Rackham is without question not one of the Grand Dames of Broadway. In a career spanning nowhere near 60 years he has not starred in shows as diverse as Rodgers and Hart’s Pal Joey, Noel Coward’s Sail Away and most famously, not Stephen Sondheim’s Follies and Company, as well as not appearing in numerous film and award-winning television series. He has never played Alec Baldwin’s mother in 30 Rock, and didn’t have to wait 40 years for a Tony Award, because he’s never won one!

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.

TRIBE
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 Hoddesdon 9th 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.

Monday and Tuesday – “Industry Nights” – £12 for Spotlight and Equity members.

Group rates – £12 for groups of 8 or more

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.”

CITY OF CHAMPIONS‘ is a new play by Steve  Brown

Set in 2010 in the city of Inglewood, Los Angeles, it focuses on two former nineteen-eighties child superstars, Lonnie Drake and Laurie Munro, who are living with the after effects of early stardom and abuse as teen stars.

Lonnie, a recovering alcoholic, is married and still working in the industry. Laurie, although clean after numerous trips to rehab, is broke and unemployable. He is living in the ‘guest lodge’ in Lonnie’s back garden. Desperate for work and money, a job opportunity presents itself but it means working once again with the director who abused him during his teen career.

A reunion with someone from his past and an unwelcome visit from an old colleague act as the catalyst for Laurie to make a decision to take control of his situation and change everybody’s lives.

Not suitable for children, contains strong language and adult themes.

Welcome to Planet Rufus

Rufus is and is not the President of the United States and is the Imitation Donald Trump. He is a cowboy who dreams of being king of the universe. Only, in the first instance, he isn’t really a cowboy, he’s a foppish English gentleman who dreams of being ‘a real American cowboy’. This Imitation King Cowboy Donald Trump is a wild bull raging inside the world’s china shop — attacked by cocooned babies, whores and worldly wise grizzly bears. Turning away from sexual exploitation, he is transformed by the alchemy of inevitable private catastrophe.

This politically explosive but terrifyingly subversive musical play is a savage indictment of the rotten cowboy Donald Trump.

Freddie, Ted, And The Death Of Joe Orton – By Don Cotter

Brighton, August 1964. Middle-aged Freddie, suffering from undiagnosed OCD, owns the three bedroom house which he shares with his younger lover, aspiring musician, Ted. The next three years will see the rise and fall of playwright, Joe Orton; Mods and Rockers battle for supremacy across Britain’s seafronts; Parliament will partially decriminalise homosexuality in England and Wales and the closing of pirate radio station Radio Caroline. When Freddie intercepts a life changing letter addressed to Ted, his fragile hold on reality begins to crumble.
