SONNET WALK WEEKEND VIII 27 & 28 April

KING JOHN - STAGED READING

King John is probably most famous as the king who signed the Magna Carta, but surprisingly such a huge event doesn't feature in Shakespeare's 1596 play, The Life and Death of King John. Instead there's dynastic squabbles over inheritance, illegitimacy and even infanticide. Lavish weddings, poisonings, papal excommunication and war with France all take centre stage, along with the fascinating character of 'The Bastard',  in this rarely performed history play. Directed by Ant Stones, our Head of Education and Associate Playwright, who directed last year's brilliant The Two Noble Kinsmen.  

Date:     Wednesday 24 April

Time:    7.30pm

Venue:  St Mary’s Church, Quarry Street, Guildford, GU1 3UA


THE GSC YOUNG COMPANY PRESENTS...

That was the most inspiring evening” Audience member 2017

They're back! Our flagship youth theatre, the GSC YOUNG COMPANY present their annual public performance.

Devised, written and performed by our group of 12 – 16 year old aspiring actors, the performance is based on the three the plays GSC staged in 2018, Romeo & Juliet, Love's Labour's Lost and Alice in Wonderland!

The company have been working on the play since September, which cleverly intertwines story lines from all three plays, and includes new characters inspired by the originals.

Dates:     Sunday 14 & Monday 15 April

Time:    7.30pm

Venue:  St Mary’s Church, Quarry Street, Guildford, GU1 3UA
