TakeOver June Week

28 May

As predicted TakeOver week one was exciting, successful and very very busy – hence how and why the preview and review section of this blog got left by the wayside.. so sorry..

But here’s the exciting news: week 2 of TakeOver 2013 is coming to York Theatre Royal next week! Yes, NEXT WEEK – 4th-8th June.

So, here’s what we’ve got planned…

Running from Thursday until 15th June – The Mercy Seat : Neil LaBute’s play following the aftermath of a national tragedy and how it affects two lovers and their life choices, asking the question, what would you do if you had the chance to start over? A gripping and powerful two-hander drama, I really recommend this!

Tuesday – Out of the Blue: a-capella like you’ve never seen it before. Or maybe you have, seeing as they were on Britain’s Got Talent! If you book your ticket in person or on the phone, ask for a free workshop ticket and the boys will teach you one of their songs and dance routines which you can perform with them in the evening show!

Wednesday- The Agony and Ecstasy of Steve Jobs : ever thought of the legality and morality behind Apple? This is a one man show which is bound to be thought provoking and leave you with questions.

Thursday- The Trench : a production filled with live music, puppetry, film and stunning physical performances, The Trench is set in World War One. watch a trailer here.

Friday- Chapel Street and Bitch Boxer : a double bill of stunning new writing, so more drama for your money. Chapel Street and Bitch Boxer have been touring the country and receiving some great reviews. Chapel Street follows Kirsty and Joe during one night in London and Bitch Boxer follows Chloe as she trains as a female boxer – come along and see them both in one night, and for only £8 for students.

Saturday – Enormous Turnip and Comedy Night : Turnip is an inventive and charming retelling of the traditional children’s tale and for the adults, we have another comedy night, featuring not one, not two but five hilarious stand-ups who will have you rolling in the aisles!
