Director – Sam Mendes

At the height of the First World War, two young British soldiers, Schofield and Blake are given a seemingly impossible mission. In a race against time, they must cross enemy territory and deliver a message that will stop a deadly attack on hundreds of soldiers—Blake’s own brother among them. Directed and co-written by Sam Mendes, with the appearance of being shot in a single take, this hard-hitting, yet poignant film has been hailed a ‘masterpiece’ (Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian).

Director: Ismael Ferroukhi

Starring: Nicolas Cazale, Mohamed Majd, Jacky Nercessian

France/Morocco, 2005, 1 hour 47 minutes, subtitles

Second-generation French Moroccan Reda is appalled when forced to drive his father on a pilgrimage to Mecca. He finds himself stuck in a car for 3000 miles with a man who not only speaks a different language but also has a totally different view of the world. As their epic journey progresses the uncomfortable pair are pulled apart, forced together and slowly move towards some kind of mutual understanding. Their trip culminates in astounding scenes of Mecca that give a rare insight into the spiritual power of Islam, while Ferroukhi’s subtle characterisation and faith in small gestures makes for a touching look at the relationship between father and son.

Director: Suhaib Gasmelbari

France/Sudan/Germany/Qatar/Chad, 2019, 1 hour 33 minutes, subtitles

A delightful documentary about a group of idealistic old friends determined to put on a film in a country where cinema going is no longer allowed. Reunited again after long years of exile, four unassuming filmmakers inspired by a love of film try to revive their old dream of making cinema a reality in Sudan.

Full of wry humour about their lives, their age and the foolishness of the task they have set themselves, the banter between the old mates as they face every obstacle is a total joy. This casts an oblique light on a country, a culture and a people about which we only ever hear badnews; any cinema fan will find this utterly irresistible.

“What kind of times are these, when to talk about trees is almost a crime, because it impliessilence about so many horrors?" Bertolt Brecht

“With unfailing artistry, director Suhaib Gasmelbari captures how cinema can be essential and why these men, with their unquenchable passion and respect for one another, deserve to be feted” Variety

Arab Blues (PG) WOW Film Festival

Tuesday 10 March at 7.45pm

Tickets - £4.50, WOW season pass - £16

 

Director: Manele Labidi Labbé

Starring: Golshifteh Farahani, Majd Mastoura, AïchaBen Miled

France, 2019, 1 hour 28 minutes, subtitles

A fresh, comic portrait of a woman returning home determined that she has something to offer that people need. Selma wants to open a psychotherapy practice in Tunis, where though people love to talk about their problems, no one thinks they’ll pay to be listened to. She has to navigate a confusing bureaucratic circus with a strapping cop watching her every move, while her family are more hindrance than help. But Selma soon enlists the support of a local hairdresser. This is a wry, slyly effective satire of entrenched traditions. With her fine comic timing Iranian star Farahani proves a subtly magnetic lead, ably backed by a colourful supporting cast of mostly female allies and antagonists.

 

“Via a colourful array of characters . . . , first-time writer-director Manele Labidi packs a lot of affectionate observations into compact running time.”     Screen International

Director: Mirlan Abdykalykov

Starring: Temirlan Asankadyrov, Ruslan Orozakunov, Meerim Atantaeva

Kyrgyzstan, 2019, 1 hour 28 minutes, subtitles

From the director of Heavenly Nomadic (WOW 2019) comes another vivid, engaging portrait of life in the mountains of Kyrgyzstan that is just as visually epic and emotionally rich as his debut. Twelve-year-old Jekshen, may be the fastest runner in school, but his parents are divorced, and life with his alcoholic father is difficult. His only chance to improve his lot comes from the races families organise when their children take their first steps. The prize can be a cockerel, a lamb or even a horse. With its big heart and expressive central performance, Running to the Sky paints a delicate, layered portrait of everyday life for one young boy as he bears more weight than he should for his age.

 

“A coming of age drama told with such charm and sensitivity that it registers highon the likeability scale.”            Screen International

Having toured the UK and America, winning multiple awards, this hugely successful family stage-show returns home as part of a European tour. 1909… in the shadow of Newport’s transporter bridge: Despite the hardship his family faces, a lowly dockworker's son, smitten by Harry Houdini, determines to emulate his hero and to follow a life of magic. His relentless ambition brings him face-to-face with the world’s greatest showman - and one of the most terrifying events in British industrial history. Is it possible to follow one’s dreams when reality weighs you down like mud? An enchanting story of childhood imagination, of the cynicism of adult life and of escape. A tale of hope and determination, packed with magic and wonder. A modern fairytale.

Sister (15) WOW Film Festival

Wednesday 11 March at 8pm

Tickets - £4.50, WOW season pass - £16

 

Director: Svetla Tsotsorkova

Starring: Monika Naydenova, Svetlana Yancheva, Elena Zamyarkova

Bulgaria/Qatar, 2019, 1 hour 37 minutes, subtitles

Strikingly composed, this tense, emotionally charged tale confirms the talented Tsotsorkova’s distinctive story-telling approach and clear focus on female relationships. In small town Bulgaria a single mum struggles to raise two feisty girls. All three work together in a roadside pottery business, but each has secrets of their own. As in her first feature Thirst (WOW 2016) Tsotsorkova grounds her story in the everyday, showing the formative influence of work and family, while subtly revealing the powerful emotional undercurrents that lie beneath. Once again the story is driven by a powerhouse performance from the remarkable Monika Naydenova as Rayna, the mouthy teenager with an overactive imagination.

 

“a dizzying helter-skelter in which social portrait, psychological thriller and melodrama go hand in hand.” Cineuropa

 

“‘a confession of love to those who live such seemingly unremarkable lives. It seems to me that we all owe a debt to the truth about the kind of world we live in” Svetla Tsotsorkova

FAGIN?

Produced by Kick In The Head

Wednesday 1 April at 7.30pm

Tickets - £14.25, ages 16-25 - £5

Who was Fagin?

Was he the Fagin in Dickens' Oliver Twist?

Was he the Fagin in Oliver! the musical?

Was he based on a real-life character?

Join Fagin as he reviews his situation during his final night in prison before being hanged. As madness envelops him he is ‘visited’ by some old acquaintances.

Find out who he really was and how he ended up as one of the best known, yet unknown, of Dickens' characters.

“This powerful new play gives a fresh twist on Dicken’s criminal Fagin.” 

Think you know Fagin? Think again.

Fagin? -written and directed by Simon Downing.

 “All three actors in the roles of Fagin (Keith Hill), Bill (Giles Shenton) and Nancy (Georgia Butt) deliver impeccable performances. In the centre of it all, the audience is captivated by Fagin’s diverse, manipulative and complex character.”

The Reviews Hub

“It is apowerful piece of work….it deserves to become an eventual classic.

The set is simple, the themes (of love, greed, deception, betrayal, regret and retribution) universal, the subtle interplay between the three characters intense and the background (Charles Dickens’ Oliver Twist) so familiar that this small masterpiece could well be a theatrical staple.” You would be a fool to yourself to miss it.”

Directed by Mark Bell (The Play That Goes Wrong)

Age 14+

Two clowns shoot the breeze, drinking bourbon and playing cards. While hunting the illusive nine of diamonds, they casually dissect capitalism, sea-lions, western culture, fishing, genocide, you know... stuff like that.
Their window on the world is one of menace, hilarity, disappointment and improbability, all delivered with a magnificent, high-octane comic brio. Anarchic and surreal, this delightful and confusing satire surprises and provokes in spades... or the nine of diamonds...

GREG WOHEAD: CELEBRATION, FLORIDA

Wednesday 20 May at 7.45pm

Tickets - £13.25, concessions - £11.25

 

Featuring two unrehearsed performers who have never met, Celebration, Florida is a quietly surreal show for anyone who has ever missed anyone or anything. 

Veering between reality and simulation, Celebration, Florida orbits around ideas of surrogacy; a stand-in to replace a person you miss, a re-creation of an experience you can’t stop thinking about, nostalgia for a place that never existed.

Greg will speak to you through two performers using pre-recorded audio and headphones. They will know almost nothing about the show when they walk on stage.

“A moving tone poem on loss and retrieval” 

★★★★ Stewart Pringle, The Stage

“A work of great sensitivity written with enviable grace and poise”

Simon Bowes, After the Lights Fade

Commissioned by The Albany and developed at The Yard. Supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England.

Greg Wohead is a writer, performer and live artist originally from Texas. He makes theatre per-formances, one-to-one pieces and audio works. His work has been seen at theatres and festi-vals in the UK, US and Europe.

CHORES - A Comedy Circus Show For The Whole Family

Friday 29 May at 3pm

Tickets - £8, family of four - £30

Chores is the story of two typical young rascal boys playing in their messy bedroom. 

Suddenly, their mother's alarming screams rattle the boys back in to acrobatic action. A generous serve of comedy and chaotic acrobatics accompanies every attempt at cleaning their room and doing their chores. This mess of chaos and comedy concludes with a last-minute cleaning spree.

The parents are kept at bay and the rewards come flooding in! 

Inspired by slapstick legends Buster Keaton and Charlie Chaplin, the side-splitting duo of Chores is coming your way. Two excitable brothers, are definitely, probably, maybe, just about to, almost, at some stage, going to do the chores their mother has asked them to do…

With highlights of skilled stunts and uproarious, interactive gags, and with very little spoken dialogue, the audience will find themselves on the edge of their seats and giggling until the chores are done.

Chores is brought to you by Julian Roberts and Morgan Wilson, the performers from Hoopla Clique. With collectively over 20 years’ experience, the exuberant talent of these two clowns redefines slapstick humour and show cases the true value of tenacity, teamwork, trust and cooperation through physical theatre.

In 2017, Mark Watson – a man prone to considerable anxiety, with multiple phobias and a history of piss-poor self-esteem – was asked to go on Celebrity Island with Bear Grylls. It really wasn’t for him at all because his favourite things include safety, comfort, food and not being scared and miserable. But the experience changed the shambolic comedian for the better, and now he’s written a sort of motivational talk about what it taught him. But still with jokes.

“Quite unlike anything else I’ve seen in almost 20 years of covering the Fringe…witty, warm, perfectly judged.”
★★★★★ Telegraph

“This is a stand-up operating at the very top of his game.”
★★★★ Independent

“He always displays an innate understanding of what the audience wants…creating a bespoke experience for every gig, an added flourish to a strong hour of stand-up.”
★★★★ Chortle

“A quick-fire hour of fun.”
★★★★ Metro
