Misfits of London: The Gin Chronicles
27 April – 1 May

St James Studio, 12 Palace Street. London SW1E 5JA
Directed by OPEN’s Artistic Director, Anthony Shrubsall, The Misfits of London are back, but in a new guise.
World War II is over, and in a time of austerity 5 unique performers, including an ex-spy and a cross-channel swimming hero, welcome you into the warmth and eccentric charm of their radio studio to perform “The Gin Chronicles”, the first episode in a series of radio style-comedy thrillers.
This is a fast paced period comedy with a decent splash of satire that should be just the tonic for any audience.

White Bear Theatre | London SE11
28 April – 2 May
A new play by WALLY SEWELL and directed by ANTHONY SHRUBSALL; first performed at the Ealing Autumn Festival has transferred to the White Bear Theatre in Kennington Park Road.

In 1941, fleeing from the Nazis, radical left-wing German playwright, Bertolt Brecht, found himself in Hollywood where he met the British movie star Charles Laughton. Orbits imagines their working relationship as they collaborated for three intense, creative years on the translation of Das Leben des Galilei (The Life of Galileo) for its American premiere.

The premiere was directed by Joseph Losey with Laughton playing Galileo. It took place in 1947 against a background of the bombing of Hiroshima and increasing anti-communist paranoia.
