  1. Miss Julie Midsummer’s Eve, Sweden. A night when the sun doesn’t set. A night of drinking and dancing. A night to break the rules. When Julie finds herself alone on her father’s estate, she throws caution to the wind and gate-crashes the servants’ party. In the sultry heat of that long, light night, she finds herself in a dangerous tryst with her father’s manservant, Jean. What begins as a flirtatious game, as the two vie for power, slowly descends into a savage fight for survival. Miss Julie was written at a time of industrial and social unrest, a ground-breaking masterpiece that still provokes and shocks audiences today. Award-winning playwright Howard Brenton brings Strindberg’s genius to life in this brilliant new adaptation. Scenes of a sexual nature

  6. Blithe Spirit Noel Coward's sparkling comedy, Blithe Spirit revolves around Charles, who is planning a seance as research for his new book. He invites the eccentric medium, Madam Arcati, into his English country home, intending to expose the Madam as a fraud. To witness this event, Charles and his second wife, Ruth, invites the skeptical Dr. Bradman and his anxious-to-believe wife, Violet. When, in the course of the seance, Madam Arcati mistakenly summons Charles' first wife Elvira, back from the beyond, things get thoroughly out of hand. Tickets availabe from Carlisle Tourist Information Office, Town Hall, Carlisle. Tel: 01228 598596
  7. Car Park King Every Egg a Bird Theatre Company presents Car Park King A play about one of the most controversial kings of England, Richard III. Add a drop of Monty Python, a dash of Spymonkey and a sprinkle of Spike Milligan and you have a side-splitting, unmissable new comedy Car Park King. Go back in time and follow Richard as he is awoken from his car park tomb and tries to stop a curse and protect his two nephews from danger. Sound simple enough? Think again. From witches, human birds, flamboyant French kings, no nonsense policemen, murderers, salesmen, lizards, 35 characters and three actors. Richard’s journey won’t be easy but it WILL be entertaining.

Whether to be incorporated in a kitchen wall setting, combined as a Triptych or simply to use as single tile decorations or coaster is your choice.There are multiple uses. Designs and shapes can be drawn freehand, layered, pressed and imprinted. Cutters could also be used. Gwen will bring a selection, but do bring your own special shape cutters if you have a particular interest or need (bicycles etc). If you would like to incorporate pressed flowers and leaves shapes & patterns into your tile these work best when dried and flat. Once you decide you wish to come on this course pick and press your flowers and bring carefully on the day within the book. Lavender and daisy, ivy leaves, wild strawberry, small leaved geranium all work well. Colours and definitions may be applied using the same techniques as the Bud Vases course above. Ideas for triptychs (a picture on three panels) are limitless : seasons, flowers, leaves, childrens' book characters, animals, birds, numbers, stories etc etc. You could even pre- prepare some lino cut panels to use as a porcelain template and bring these along if required.
