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.
AATG Success at FEATS!
Festival of European Anglophone Theatrical Societies (FEATS)
18 to 21 May 2018, Fakkeltheater, Antwerp
The Festival of European Anglophone Theatrical Societies (FEATS) in Antwerp featured two plays put on by the AATG. "Flowers for Algernon" was very well received at the fringe performance on the Sunday. Congratulations to director Emma de Moel and her great cast.
The main stage on Monday night featured Charlie Bird and Suzanne van Dolen in an amazing production of "Universal Language" directed by John Kearey. The pair put on a stellar performance in front of a packed house that were laughing and clapping all the way through. Their efforts were rewarded in nominations for best actor and actress for Charlie and Suzanne and an overall prize for 3rd place. Congratulations to Suzanne, Charlie and John!
