The Vicar of Dibley – February 24th to 27th
A side-splitting stage adaptation, of the original TV series written by Richard Curtis and Paul Mayjew-Archer. Following the untimely death of the Reverend Pottle, Dibley has been appointed a new vicar though, as she is a babe with a bob-cut and a magnificent bosom, her reception proves to be less than welcoming. From the somewhat inappropriate Owen Newitt to the dithering Jim ‘no-no-no-no’ Trott, all the iconic villagers are portrayed, headed up by the pompous David Horton and his much put-upon son Hugo.
The Winter’s Tale – February 28th
Broadcast live from the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden. Christopher Wheeldon, Artistic Associate of The Royal Ballet, created his adaptation of Shakespeare’s late great romance The Winter’s Tale for The Royal Ballet in 2014. The story follows the destruction of a marriage through consuming jealousy, the abandonment of a child and a seemingly hopeless love. Yet, through remorse and regret – and after a seemingly miraculous return to life – the ending is one of forgiveness and reconciliation.
