The October / November 2012 Newsletter

The Milk Bottle October / November Newsletter

First off - barely a week to go before Ghost Storyteller comes to the Quay Theatre - book your tickets!  Okay, we'll calm down now.
It's been a busy month, with the world premiere of The Shakespeare Delusion (it went jolly well, if we say so ourselves), the writing of a new play and preparations for the Christmas run coming together.  In but a week or so the first performances of the new version of Ghost Storyteller will be appearing, and rehearsals are well in hand for both that and The Fantasy Terrorist Variations - the trailer for which is below.
And, as if Robert wasn't busy enough, he's already working on another couple of plays.  Details of those will appear in the future.  Probably.

GHOST STORYTELLER - PRE-ORDER YOUR COPY:

Not only is Ghost Storyteller coming to life in a couple of one-off performances this October, but there will be a combined programme and script on sale.  We're hoping that it will retail at only £3, (though it may be £3.50, we're not sure yet) and if you would like to pre-order a copy for your visit to the show then send us an email and we'll reserve a copy for the night.  Contact us at the usual address - contact@milkbottleproductions.co.uk

Ghost Storyteller 
Comic Ghost Stories Written and Performed by Robert Crighton
Ghost Storyteller is a lightly comic selection of ghost stories written and performed by award-winning writer and performer Robert Crighton. 
From the ghosts of empty houses, to the personal ghosts we carry around us, this collection is a mixture of the fantastic and the “real”: including the tale of a poltergeist hamster and the pub that cried ghost.
Performing Friday 26th October at 7.30pm
Quay Theatre, Sudbury, CO10 2AN – Box Office: 01787 374 745


A COMPLICATED READ THROUGH:

On Saturday 15th September a brave band of fearless warriors joined Robert to read through his latest play, Complicated Pleasures
Our fearless read through warriors...
Coffee was drunk, silly voices were performed (there weren't enough ladies so the men did their best) and puppets were ritually abused. 
Our thanks to everyone who helped make the second draft of the play much better. 
When will you see this play exciting new play performed?  Watch this space.

VARIATIONS ON A TRAILER:

The first of a series of un-trailers for The Fantasy Terrorist Variations has been launched on YouTube.  It's an un-trailer because it doesn't show any part of the show - what it does do it deal with one of the themes of the third play of the show - The Project After - a new piece to compliment the other two more established plays. 

The Project After isn't controversial, though it does deal with supposedly controversial issues: free speech, religious extremism and fear.  This un-trailer wraps up the issues fairly neatly.  Enjoy.

The Fantasy Terrorist Variations
Written by Robert Crighton, performed by Keith Hill and Simon Nader

Three Plays - One Subject - Boom!
A series of stories spun from the award-winning ‘Fantasy Terrorist League’.  A man is interned as a terrorist on the flimsiest of grounds, a chancer looks how to make money out of counter-terrorism and the story of the non-existent artwork that might get people killed. The Fantasy Terrorist Variations is a powerful account of fear, the policeman on our streets and the ones in our heads.
