Birmingham School of Acting present their Autumn Season 2008


Ring Round the Moon by Jean Anouilh

Wed 15th - Fri 17th October at 7.30pm in the Main House
Matinees: Fri 17th at 2.30pm, Sat 18th at 5.00pm

‘Everything has to end happily, it’s only decent.’

Ring Around The Moon is a comedy of mistaken identity, manners, mannerisms and affairs of the heart. A witty, madcap and tangy satire of upper class pretension and lower class ambition coupled with a fairytale ending.

Contains Smoking
An amateur production by arrangement with Samuel French

Lulu by Nicholas Wright based on the original by Frank Wedekind

Wed 15th - Sat 18th October in the Ron Barber Studio Theatre
Evenings: Wed 15th - Fri 17th at 7.45pm
Matinees: Thu 16th at 2.30 and Sat 18th at 5.15pm

‘Undo Me.’

Lulu follows the decline and fall of a young woman possessed of a fatal combination of sexuality and innocence. She passes from German and Parisian high society to the streets of Jack the Ripper’s London – destroying, and ultimately destroyed by her lovers.

Contains Bad Language, Sexual Content, Smoking and Loud Gun Shots.
An amateur production by arrangement with Nick Hern Books

The American Clock by Arthur Miller

Wed 22nd - Sat 25th October in the Ron Barber Studio Theatre
Evenings: Wed 22nd - Fri 24th at 7.30pm
Matinees: Fri 24th at 2.30 and Saturday 25th at 5.00pm

Miller’s semi-autobiographical story centres on a family whose deprivation and humiliation take us through the Depression.  It is an epic expressionistic celebration of a time that devastated America, yet forged the creation of an exceptional national experience.

Arthur Miller’s, The American Clock is a wide ranging vista showing what the 1930’s did to the psyche of the USA.

Contains Smoking
Production by arrangement with Josef Weinberger Ltd

Tickets: £7 (Concessions £5.50)
