    Secrets, intrigue and tension with a dash of explosive violence...

    Putney Theatre Company presents House of Bernarda by Margaret Lawless based on The House of Bernarda Alba by Federico Garcia Lorca .

    Performance dates: Tuesday 25 to Saturday 29 January 2022  7.45pm (main stage)

    Bernarda Beausoleil, a Southern Belle descended from exiled nobility, has lived in isolation in her house in the remote Appalachian Mountains - Hillbilly Country - for nearly thirty years. Forbidden from interaction with an outside community deemed socially inferior, her four daughters have been kept in a tight grip of control by their violent domineering mother.

    When the youngest, Adela, is covertly involved in a passionate affair with "the most handsome and well-bred man in the region" and her sister Marta, embittered after a sabotaged romance years before, threatens to reveal her secret and bring down Bernarda's full wrath upon her, tragedy looms ominously over the house.

    Margaret Lawless' tempestuous adaptation of Federico García Lorca sets aside the broad, epic strokes of the original in an attempt to establish a more detailed sense of the titular character's flawed humanity. Bernarda may be an unhinged, domineering and explosively violent matriarch, but she earnestly believes that she protects herself and her daughters from a hostile, uncivilised world.

    “You can’t tell your mum the streets are full of psychos and it’s pure fluke you get home alive every night.”

    Putney Theatre Company presents Killology by Gary Owen.

    Performance dates: Monday 14th February - Saturday 19th February 2022 7.45pm, 7.45pm (studio)

    Please note: this production contains strong language and descriptions of bullying, gang violence, animal cruelty, torture and murder.

    It's only a game! Created from hatred. Designed for aggression. Played for gratification. It's entertainment. But what if it actually stokes the flames?

    Shocking, savage yet deeply tender, this Olivier Award-winning drama is a brutal, beautiful bruise of a play. Exploring the cause and effect of violence, it becomes a powerfully emotional drama about fathers and sons and the absence of love.

    First seen at the Royal Court Theatre, Killology contains scenes and dialogue that some people may find disturbing.

    Celebration -(staged reading)

    By Harold Pinter 

    Friday 25th & Saturday 26th February

    7.45pm Main Stage

    Celebration is a short one act play, set in a high end restaurant. Over the course of the evening, three couples - one of whom is celebrating their anniversary - demonstrate that there's a thin line between love and hate. The play is dripping in the comedy of menace, of which Pinter is a masterchef. The language is cordon bleu and the result is a delicious, funny, sinister theatrical feast.

    This amateur production of "Celebration (Pinter)" is presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals Ltd. on behalf of Samuel French Ltd (www.concordtheatricals.co.uk)

    As a staged reading, the actors will be performing with scripts in hand.

     Submissions now closed

    From 3-7 May 2022, Putney Theatre Company will be celebrating being back in the theatre with a New Writing Festival.

    We will be opening our doors to new playwrights seeking to inspire and captivate a great community at Putney, live on stage.

    PLEASE NOTE: Submissions for our New Writing Festival are now closed. Production details and tickets will be available here soon.

    We are looking for one-act plays with a running time of 45 minutes in any genre. There is no restriction on theme or historical period, however, please avoid any lockdown/Covid-19/isolation pieces, unless entirely necessary for the progression of the piece.

    Please write for a maximum of 6-8 actors; it will be a ‘live’ event, so please consider the number of props and costumes. The set will be established to accommodate for all separate pieces. It will be performed in our larger theatre, which seats around 140 audience members.

    The deadline for submissions will be Thursday 25 November 2021. Those pieces shortlisted will be taken through two rounds of development, with the final decision on pieces being made in January 2022 for performances in May 2022. We will initially be looking to select four pieces overall to take through to the festival.

    If you have any further questions, please contact ptcnewwriting@gmail.com
