MORE CHANCES TO SEE our two fantastic one-act plays:
'UNIVERSAL LANGUAGE' and 'FLOWERS FOR ALGERNON'
Monday 21 May 2018 at FEATS in Antwerp, 19:30
Saturday 2 June 2018 at Badhuistheater in Amsterdam, 20:15
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 intelligence fourfold.
“The Universal Language” will also be the AATG’s entry in FEATS 2018 and “Flowers for Algernon” will be staged in the FEATS Fringe.
One last chance to see these fantastic plays will be on 2 June at the intimate Badhuistheater in Amsterdam.
Festival of European Anglophone Theatrical Societies (FEATS)
18 to 21 May 2018, Fakkeltheater, Antwerp
The Festival of European Anglophone Theatrical Societies is a bit of a mouthful, so we just call it FEATS.
FEATS is a celebration of the best of amateur theatre in Europe. An annual event, it brings together twelve productions to perform on the main stage. Although the main goal is to create great theatre and entertainment - the event is also a competition. An external adjudicator will assess each performance and prizes will be awarded at the end for best play, best actors, best costumes etc.
In addition there is the Fringe festival, where productions will be shown in a smaller venue that are not being adjudicated.
This year the Main Stage will have performances from twelve companies from the Netherlands, Belgium, Germany, Switzerland and Sweden of which our "Universal Language" will be one - at 19:30 on Monday 21 May.
"Flowers for Algernon" will perform in the Fringe at 14:50 on Sunday 20 May. The Fringe performances are at another venue 20 minutes walk from the Fakkeltheater.
