'Universal Language' and 'Flowers for Algernon'
The plays are: “The Universal Language” by David Ives, directed by John Kearey, and “Flowers for Algernon” by Daniel Keyes, directed by Emma de Moel.
David Ives spins hilarity out of words in “The Universal
Language,” which brings together Dawn, a young woman with a stutter, and Don,
the creator and teacher of Unamunda, the language that will unite all
humankind. First staged in New York City in November 1993.
'Flowers for Algernon' is the compelling story of Charlie, a mentally retarded man, and
the strange interweaving of his life with that of Algernon, a mouse.
Experimental surgery has been performed on Algernon increasing his
“The Universal Language” will also be the AATG’s entry in FEATS 2018 and “Flowers for Algernon” will be staged in the FEATS Fringe.
AATG Play Reading: Wyrd Sisters by Terry Pratchett (adapted for stage by Stephen Briggs)
Continuing our 2017-2018 season of play readings, we’ll be reading this adaptation of Terry
Pratchett's Discworld novel
Terry Pratchett takes Shakespeare’s Macbeth and then turns it up ’till
the knob comes off. It’s all there – a wicked duke and duchess, the
ghost of the murdered king, dim soldiers, strolling players, a land in
peril. And who stands between the Kingdom and destruction? Three
witches. Granny Weatherwax (intolerant, self-opinionated, powerful),
Nanny Ogg (down-to-earth, vulgar) and Magrat Garlick (naïve, fond of
occult jewellery and bunnies).
Come along and either listen, or practise your dramatic reading skills before an appreciative audience, or just socialise with other AATG members and meet new friends. As always there will be free drinks and nibbles!
AATG Pantomime: Jack and the Beanstalk
Believe it or not, the AATG is already making definite plans for the pantomime we’ll be staging in December 2018!
We have booked the Theater aan het Spui from 6th to 9th December, where we are pleased to announce that we will be staging “Jack and the Beanstalk”, specially authored for the AATG by the team that brought you "Robin Hood", "Cinderella: Shaken not stirred" and "Beauty and the Beast"; our seasoned husband-and-wife writing/directing team of John and Jenny Hall.Follow the exploits of Jack and his mother, Dame Trot, as they try to find the money to pay the rent before the nasty Baron throws them out if their house....
Mix this with an Evil giant, a trio of incompetent policemen, a cow that may not be all it appears to be and a singing harp, then chaos is sure to happen. But will the story end happily ever after?
Come along and find out!
It's guaranteed to be fun, furious and full of frivolous frantic frolicking.
