LABYRINTH

Date: Tuesday 15 October

Time: 7:45m 

Venue: All Saints Centre 

Address: All Saints Centre, Friars Walk, Lewes, East Sussex, BN7 2LE

Tickets: £10 advance / £12 door

Physical theatre meets visceral live literature in this fierce feminist monologue from Portugal, which hovers - at times - ambiguously between murder and vivid fantasy. Portuguese actress Marta Carvalho plays a woman haunted by the subtly coercive entanglements of a failed love affair and determines she will break free of it by ruthlessly annihilating all traces of it - (and of him) - within herself.

The Lewes performance previews a new English version of the text by LLL's Artistic Director, Mark C. Hewitt, developed in collaboration with the performer. The original Portuguese text (‘Labirinto de Amor e Morte’) by Galician theatremaker Moncho Rodriguez has been toured extensively by Marta Carvalho in Portugal, Spain and Brazil. Music in the production is composed by Narciso Fernandes, featuring the voice of Clarisse Fernandes.

WORKS IN PROGRESS

New writing for theatre.

Date: Wednesday 30 October

Time: 7:45pm

Venue: All Saints Centre 

Address: All Saints Centre, Friars Walk, Lewes, East Sussex, BN7 2LE

Tickets: £6.50 advance  / £8.00 on door

LLL presents another evening of professionally performed rehearsed readings of new works (and works in progress) by local playwrights. Featured works to include Her Big Day by Louise Monaghan, Bangles by Josie Melia, Ripped Map by Neil Noon and the female sections of Mark Hewitt's Prison Dialogues (the male ones were tried out at the last event of this kind in April).

These events are useful for writers and enjoyable for audiences. As someone commented at the last event in this series: “Very stimulating and engaging – each so different and poignant and true to itself. Particularly enjoyed the surreality of the Prison Dialogues.” 

Each performance will be introduced by the writer with Q&A afterwards. Details of the plays and performers to follow.

Tickets: £6.50 advance / £8.00 door
