Birmingham School of Acting presents their

Winter Season 2009


by Bernard Shaw

2nd - 4th at 7.45; Sat 5th at 5.30 plus matinee on Fri 4th at 2.45pm.

"If marriages were made by putting all the men's names into one sack and the women's names into another, and having them taken out… like lottery numbers, there would be just as high a percentage of happy marriages as we have now."

Misalliance takes place on a single afternoon. John Tarleton’s daughter Hypatia is longing for adventure, which duly arrives in the form of a dishy airline pilot and an exotic female acrobat. As the various characters assembled take stock of each other, eight marriage proposals are offered, with Shaw’s socialist theme questioning conventional views on marriage and social order all the while.

Note: Misalliance includes smoking.

Into the Woods

by Stephen Sondheim

Matinees: 11th and 12th at 2.45pm.        

What really happens after the fairy-tale ending, when all your wishes have come true?

A baker and his wife, along with characters from Little Red Ridinghood, Jack and the Beanstalk, Rapunzel and Cinderella, are about to find out that every wish has a consequence… and every story has a moral. Full of humour, attitude and unforgettable music, Stephen Sondheim’s playful romp through the Brothers Grimm fairy tales brings the land of make believe bang up-to-date.
