Could You Be on Their Stage?

Putney Arts Theatre turns fifty this year, and they are inviting you to celebrate with them in a number of ways. You can attend the launch event on the 11th January, watch special shows, and even audition for certain performances.


Fifty Shades of Funny
5th & 6th January, 3.30pm-6.30pm

Exploring the lighter side of theatre, you will audition in groups, read from scripts, and do improvisation acting. Roles are for people 18 and over, and include box office characters, murderous actors, an ageing actress, and passengers on a tube train. Recalls will be on the 19th January.

The performance will be between the 18th-22nd March. Even if you don't get a part, you can always enjoy watching it as a member of the audience. Tickets are 12 or 8 concessions.

Contractions by Mike Barlett
5th January, 6.30pm

A black comedy about an employee's invasion of privacy and a rigid contract. They are looking for two female actors to play the role of the manager and employee.

The play is part of Putney Theatre's endeavour to perform outside its usual venue. Site Lines sees them uproot to offices, classrooms, pubs, and bars.

Love and Information
25th February - 1st March, 7.45pm, 12 adult, 8 concessions

Caryl Churchill's witty collage of miniature plays features over a hundred characters exploring the relationship between what we know and how we feel.

29th April-3rd May, 7.45pm, 12 adult, 8 concessions

An autobiographical comedy by Neil Simon's tells the story of childhood growing up with his eccentric Jewish family in Brooklyn in 1937.

Our New Girl
20th-24th May, 7.45pm, 12 adult, 8 concessions

A psychological drama that has a whiff of Fatal Attraction and We Need to Talk about Kevin. On the surface, Hazel's life seems perfect, but strange things are starting to happen: boxes of olive oil are appearing in the kitchen, Daniel has a growing obsession with knives, and a woman suddenly appears, claiming to be the new nanny.

Anne Boleyn

In Theatre
24th - 28th June, 3pm & 7.45pm, 12 adult, 8 concessions

This historical drama debunks the myths of Henry VIII's most infamous wife.
