SLT at the Lambeth Country Show

This year SLT had a new stand at the Lambeth Country Show. A stand that celebrates the newly restored Victorian Fire Station was conceived and built by Chaz Doyle with the help of Anna Rubincam, Carole Ironside, Mat Hill and Bryon Fear. We found ourselves in the ‘Village Green’ this year, set way back behind the tennis courts in the north-west corner of Brockwell Park where footfall was not as brisk as we have experienced in previous years. However, all […]

Ticket Price Increases From September, 2018

We haven’t put up our ticket prices in over a decade, apart from when we had to add VAT, but it won’t be a surprise to our members and audiences to know that the costs of putting on shows and running our building have risen, so we need to find ways of generating more income from ticket sales among other things. Those members who attended our AGM will be keenly aware of this. Ticket prices for SLT members, concessionary members and […]

Toad of Toad Hall – The Director’s View

Tom Melly tells us about his directorial debut Toad of Toad Hall, our next production at SLT Why did you choose this play? Toad forms my first memory of seeing ‘proper’ theatre. It still brings back memories of the smell and feel of red plush seats, the sound of the orchestra warming up, and the elaborate proscenium sets. It was a children’s play, but a very different experience from the pantomimes I’d seen up until then, and I fell in […]

The Misanthrope – The Director’s View

Naomi Liddle tells us about her show The Misanthrope, our next production at SLT This is your second Molière play for SLT – what’s the attraction for you? I originally came across The Hypochondriac rather by accident and fell in love with the way that Roger McGough transposed the original text into shamelessly modern speech while keeping the rhyming structure. I had been thinking of doing another of McGough’s translations but then came across Martin Crimp’s version of The Misanthrope and was hooked. Molière […]
