Clare in Chester Tuffnut @ Polka

Friday, 22 April 2016

Clare Fraenkel is devising and performing in Gomito Productions' new show "Chester Tuffnut", at The Polka Theatre, Wimbledon, this summer.

22 Jun - 14 Aug 2016

Meet Chester, the daredevil treemole on a summer Woodland escapade! 

Chester Tuffnut isn’t your ordinary treemole, in fact he is one of kind! Chester likes wearing jumpers and sitting in his armchair, but most of all he loves adventure – digging holes, reading books, making friends, climbing trees and being outdoors.

Woodland is home to lots of rare animals, but it’s been so long since these curious creatures have had any fun or excitement, they’ve forgotten what to do. Luckily Chester is at hand to save his new friends from boredom and bring happiness and laughter back to the forest. 

This is a story about discovering new places, making friends and inspiring everyone to have at least one adventure every day. Join Chester and a brave bunch of creatures for an action-packed story of highs, lows, thrills, spills, near misses and great escapes.

Running time 50 mins, including a chance to stay and explore Chester's Woodland at the end of the performance.

Tony Wredden in The Cause at Jermyn Street

Tony Wredden in The Cause at Jermyn Street

Monday, 07 March 2016

 

Tony Wredden plays the leading role of Sandor in The Cause at the Jermyn Street Theatre. 

In 1964 Oxford, an eccentric artist seeks the help of a psychotherapist to unlock a 50 year old secret.  In 1914 Budapest four young idealists vow to restore independence to Hungary. And in Belgrade ‘The Black Hand’ plots to overthrow the Hapsburg Empire. Three stories, three causes, one outcome…the war to end all wars.

Acclaimed theatre company ACS Random comes to Jermyn Street Theatre with a thrilling tale of bravery and betrayal from debut writer Jeremy James. The Cause is a story of love, loss and the blind pursuit of a cause without regard for the consequences. It’s a tale which resonates through the ages.

Judith Amsenga in Caravan Shorts

Judith Amsenga in Caravan Shorts

Thursday, 18 February 2016

Judith will be performing a one woman short in a caravan (!) as part of the Vaults Festival. Showdates are Thur 18 - Sun 21 every half hour from 6.45pm until 9.45pm, and the piece lasts 15 mins.
 
 
"When Jo goes to Ikea to buy a new bed, it seems her life is on the verge of falling apart. What she doesn’t factor in is how everything is about to change, how she’ll come back from Neasden with so much more than a new bed.
This story plunges us into the tragi-comic reality of what it means to be a human, searching for love and meaning in the assemble-it-yourself age of Ikea."

 
The piece is written by Samantha Kissin and Judith performed it previously in Borough Market and outside the Tate. 
 
Audience responses: `Amazing! Funny, imaginative and so... real! All in 15 minutes!'
 
`Great play and wonderful, strong performance. I feel privileged to have been.'
 
`Incredible! Fantastic experience. Ikea will never be the same...'
