Published: 16 July 2009
In the wings

TO celebrate 35 years on the fringe, Hampstead’s New End Theatre is taking 11 productions up to this year’s Edinburgh Festival.
Lighter fare includes a fictional lunch with Lionel Blair, Jewish storytelling through song, and Jeffrey Solomon’s award-winning solo play about a mother and her gay son. The theatre’s acclaimed 2004 play Timekeepers; its current production Jordy/Pordy; and new adaptations of classic texts Ivanov and The Merchant of Venice are also making the journey up to Scotland for August.

FORBIDDEN love and family tensions threaten to tear all asunder in Ibsen’s The Lady from the Sea. Jonathan Lermit directs the Tower Theatre Company in the Norweigan playwright’s highly personal study of the sea and its thrall.
The show is at The Bridewell Theatre until July 18. A Q&A with the cast and crew follows the Thursday evening performance.

CATCH comedy previews ahead of the all-powerful Edinburgh Festival next week at Islington’s King’s Head.
Celebrated musical comedy double-act the Roaring Boys perform new show Tim: Against All Odds and Islington favourites the Unexpected Items and human jukebox Abi Roberts
will be entertaining the troops on Monday July 27 at the Upper Street venue.

RUMINATIONS on life, aging and the persistence of dreams are accompanied by traditional songs by the Irish Centre Pensioner’s Choir at the Hampstead Theatre next Wednesday.
Mirror, Mirror..., devised by senior citizens based at the London Irish Centre, plays at the Hampstead as part of the theatre’s 50th anniversary year, then comes to the London Irish Centre in Camden Square from July 28-30.
