House and Garden

Thursday May 25th 2017 - Saturday July 1st 2017
7:00 pm - 10:00 pm
The Watermill Theatre
Bagnor
Newbury
Berkshire
RG20 8AE

In the unique setting of The Watermill, Alan Ayckbourn’s pair of linked comedies will be performed simultaneously by the same cast between the theatre and a marquee in its beautiful gardens. With hilarious consequences, one character’s entrance to House is another’s exit from Garden in this fast-paced duo of plays!
At the Platt country manor, whilst womanising landowner Teddy Platt eagerly awaits the arrival of an old friend in the house, in the garden, preparations for the annual village fete are well underway.
Amidst the manicured setting, gossip, affairs and petty feuds run rife and with a host of colourful characters and troubled couples mingling throughout the day, tensions run higher still into the night.
This will be the first time that Ayckbourn’s play has been performed both inside
and out, promising to be a very special production that will be epic and intimate in equal measure.
Elizabeth Freestone has directed for the RSC and Shakespeare’s Globe and makes her debut at The Watermill Theatre.
Dress warmly to enjoy the experience of watching great theatre in two locations.
“You look a bit – overdressed. For a garden fete.”
Directed by Elizabeth Freestone
Please note performances will be at 2pm and 7pm

“That’s where we differ then. I buy it and keep it. You don’t buy it. But neither of us likes throwing away.”
Linda is a self-confessed ‘collector’. She has all the necessities: broken umbrellas to match any outfit, unopened Amazon parcels delivered in 2012, shoes that
don’t fit but were a bargain at 75 percent off and trainers because, one day, she will definitely take up running. To add to her collection there
is Toby, an affectionately named rat who has taken up residence in her home.
With the arrival of Jonathan, a man who can’t sleep if the sponge is in the wrong place by the kitchen sink, comes a more life-changing situation than Linda could ever have imagined. The journey that follows is one of love, loss and an infatuation with Stevie Wonder memorabilia.
A poignant new play by Ellen Robertson, Nesting is a funny and moving look at compulsive behaviour and finding love in the most unlikely of places

A Gamble With Death is a murder mystery treasure hunt that sends teams of intrepid detectives to find clues hidden on the streets of Reading

This Summer sees a brand new live-action interactive adventure for families, colleagues and friends.

Using their smartphones, players must race around the streets of Reading to find hidden evidence, crack cryptic clues and converse with suspicious-looking characters to catch the culprit – before the time runs out.

A Gamble With Death is 3-hour live-action treasure hunt with a difference. Imagine the crystal maze, escape room puzzles, a scavenger hunt, a team of live actors, your smartphone and a murder mystery all got together – with a timer.

Local businesses and iconic Reading locations are in on the action too, with clues hidden all around the Town Centre.

This new concept sees players working as solo sleuths or as teams of intrepid detectives searching the streets of Reading against the clock, and uniquely allows them to discover hidden gems around the town, explore Reading’s history and crack the case in an intriguing new way.

The game centres around the Abbey Ruins, which aren’t being restored at all – but are being demolished by notorious businessman, Jack Diamond, to make way for The Golden Abbey Casino. He thought the plans for the Casino were his ace card, but certain individuals weren’t happy, and last night – his luck finally ran out.

A Gamble With Death runs at 12pm and 3pm on Saturday 22nd & 29th July and Saturday 5th August.

Tickets are £20

The non-motorised racing event will challenge entrants to design and build imaginative soapbox dream machines to race in two timed runs down the course. Each machine will be hand-made and fuelled by nothing but courage, adrenaline, and the force of gravity. The fastest cart will be the winner!
Entry to the event is £100 per team for seniors (18+ years); £50 for juniors (12 to 17 years). As this is a fundraising event, the RBC ask that participants also try and raise as much sponsorship as they can for their chosen cause.

Spectators will pay a nominal charge of £5 which will cover entry to the event and car parking
