Right Now

Right Now
As Alice and Ben settle into their beautiful new flat they realise that the family across the hall hope to be more than just good neighbours. Soon, Juliette, Giles, and their son Francis are wearing out the welcome mat; suggesting drinks, hors d'oeuvres and dancing. Things begin to heat up as innocent invitations lead to passionate encounters and unsettling revelations. Written by award-winning Quebecois playwright Catherine-Anne Toupin, Right Now is a play with a dark heart, a disquieting exploration of one woman's crisis and darkest desires. It walks a delicate line between playful laughter and deep trauma, teasing and thrilling audiences from beginning to end.

Notes:
Original Playwright - Catherine-Anne Toupin. Right Now had its world premiere in French under the title A Present on January 15 2008 at the Theatre La Licorne in montreal.

Tartuffe

Synopsis:
Orgon has welcomed the seemingly perfect Tartuffe into his respectable household but is he all that he seems? Does he speak with divine authority or does he just want to seduce Organ's wife and daughter? Moliere's famous comedy is transported to the modern-day West Midlands in this new spectacular production directed by our new Artistic Director, Roxana Silbert. This hilarious whirlwind of lies, religious hypocrisy and family feuds features one of theatre's most perfect comedy creations, the titular Tartuffe. ReP100 Patron Mark Williams steps into the legendary role having gained national treasure status with roles in the Harry Potter films, the Fast Show and Doctor Who.
