    Education @ The Palace and Vision West Nottinghamshire College Performing Arts Department present this new play by Matt Lamb, one of the Write Track playwrights.

     

    A new member, Max, arrives to be initiated into the gang.  Francis is clear that he is the leader, but Malice has other ideas.  What happens when respect and loyalty get questioned and challenged by the gang members?
    The world of the gang is played out through a series of challenges / games.  Seth and Maggie enjoy testing others.  Tommy remains quiet.  Max is not sure how to gain respect in this world of jealously and mistrust.
    Join us for this engaging examination of human behaviour!

  • May
  • Pericles

    Wednesday 3rd May & Thursday 4th May 2017 7pm

    £5 (£4 concessions)

    BA Theatre students at Vision West Nottinghamshire College are proud to present their final piece of work: William Shakespeare’s Pericles.

    Bear witness to a tale of woe, not far
    From those we see today in Aleppo;
    With vile incest and a murderous rage,
    Great tragedy will fill our humble stage.
    Family parted through shipwreck and storm;
    Across many lands our story is born,
    But with hope, will all be well in the end?
    You may find the answer if you attend.

  • Something Improvised

    Saturday 6th and Saturday 13th May 2017 at 8pm

    £10 Full Price, £8 Concession, £5 student

    Six games, one games master, a glamourous assistant and absolutely no script!

     

    Something Improvised is exactly that; an improvisation piece where an element of competition along with a twisted host brings not only pace and urgency to the piece but also hilarity and embarassment to the unfortunate actors.

     

    With all the elements of a late night panel show and a test of theatrical skill thrown in, this show is everything the audience could wish for in terms of comedy theatre that's easy watching and above all, entertaining!

     

    'Something Improvised' is the newest project from Mansfield's Something Theatre.

  • ALBUM LAUNCH: Of Men and Crows

    Monday 8th May 2017 7pm

    Free Entry! Booking Essential!

    Album Launch and Gig


    Of Men and Crows are a dynamic yet sensitive alternate-rock group from Mansfield. The band blend the melodic hooks and guitar-driven rock of the Foo Fighters or Kings of Leon with the emotional lyricism and classic song writing of the Fray and Against the Current. They release their eponymous and self-produced debut album on Monday 8th May. Their gig at Create will showcase live versions of all of the album songs.

     

    Of Men and Crows will be joined by students from HND Music who, following a visit to Barcelona, will be playing a set of songs influenced by the city, its history, culture and colourful characters. The performance will be accompanied by visual projections to create a multi-media experience.

     

    Doors open at 19:00. The show starts shortly afterwards. All ages are welcome.

  • Getting Attention

    Wednesday 10th and Thursday 11th May 2017 7pm

    £5 (£4 concessions)

    By Martin Crimp

     

    What does it mean to be a “family”?

     

    Sexual desire between partners? Passion? Trust? Neglect? Abuse?

     

    A young couple driven by their obsession with each other disregard the elephant locked in the room. The ignorance and powerlessness of neighbours and government officials unable to prevent the atrocities being committed in front of their sightless eyes.

     

    The evening also includes a pre-show performance: Face to the Wall by Martin Crimp

     

    A look at the media and its relentless influence on the news and real events. How do you feel when you see disaster strike? Do you “like” it on Facebook or do you “retweet” on Twitter expecting it to make a difference? Are you happy with your blissful ignorance?

    THIS AMATEUR PRODUCTION OF "FACE TO THE WALL" & "GETTING ATTENTION" IS PRESENTED BY SPECIAL ARRANGEMENT WITH SAMUEL FRENCH LTD.

  • The Grain Store

    Thursday 22nd June 2017 7pm

    £5 (£4 concessions)

    By Natal'ia Vorozhbit

    Translated by Sasha Dugdale

    Ukraine 1929. As Stalin launches the first of his Five-Year Plans, a closeknit rural community stands unwittingly in the path of his drive to create a thriving socialist Soviet Union. The outcome is catastrophic.

     

    What begins for the people of the village as an amusingly alien concept rapidly becomes an unstoppable force for change. Robbed first of their land, then their religion and independence, the whole country soon becomes engulfed by a tragedy that will scar a nation for generations.

     

    Year 2 VWNC Performing Arts Acting students present this as their final piece.
