After a spectacular start to 2019, The Mission Theatre is delighted to be welcoming 4 talented companies to Bath this month. From Shakespeare to original dramas, literary classics to thought-provoking tales, there is something for everyone to enjoy.
Tuesday 5th - Wednesday 6th February
Antony and Cleopatra
The first of our fabulous four is The Scullions. This talented local company are bringing to Bath a re-imagined version of the epic Shakespeare tale: Antony and Cleopatra. The ancient tale is relocated and set in the roaring 20’s - a world of decadent, party-fuelled, young and disgustingly-rich aristocrats. The company invite you for a night at the illustrious bar of Egypt’s wealthiest bright young thing, Cleopatra.
With a live band and an ensemble cast, you won’t want to miss your ticket to this party.
Tickets £12 (£10 concs) Available from Bath Box Office 01225 463362
Friday 8th - Saturday 9th February
In Other Words
Next up we have a newly published Samuel French production In Other Words brought to The Mission by Off The Middle. It is an intimate, humorous and deeply moving love story which explores the effects of Alzheimer’s disease and the transformative power of music in our lives. This five star production follows the lives of Arthur and Jane as they tell their stories from the very beginning, connecting with the timeless music of Frank Sinatra.
Relevant and powerful, do not miss this up and coming production for 2019!
