As a result of continuing uncertainty over when the virus restrictions will be eased, our production of A View From the Bridge, by Arthur Miller, re-scheduled for September, is being further postponed to next year.

However we hope to go ahead in November this year with plans to stage After Miss Julie, by Patrick Marber.

This is the Open Space calendar as it stands:

November 5 - 21 (2020) After Miss Julie, by Patrick Marber

The lady of the house descends to the servant quarters and sparks desire, jealousy and ambition. Marber's snappy adaptation of August Strindberg's classic, Miss Julie, moves the action from a midsummer's eve party in late 19th century Sweden to July 1945 in Britain as celebrations for the Labour Party election victory are in full swing.

April 9 - 24 (2021) a comedy, yet to be chosen

November 5 - 20 (2021) A View From the Bridge, by Arthur Miller.

Eddie Carbone struggles to allow Catherine, the orphaned niece he has nurtured, to go out into the wider world. His inner turmoil increases as she falls in love with one of the two illegal immigrants he and his wife are sheltering. Can Eddie accept the inevitable or will his stubborn obsession turn to tragedy? Set in the 1950s in the shadow of one of New York's landmark buildings, the Brooklyn Bridge, this is one of Miller's greatest plays.

Betrayal by Harold Pinter


We had an excellent 10 day tour of Harold Pinter's play Betrayal, playing in full to capacity theatres. The popularity of Pinter surprised us, and the appreciation of the audiences, especially at The PumpHouse (Aldeburgh), a new venue for us, was heartening.
