AATG Play Reading: Youth Special

12/6/2017

AATG Play Reading
Youth Special
Monday 12th June 2017

6:30 - 7:30pm – prepared pieces, no longer than 5 minutes
7:30 - 7:45pm – refreshments
7:45 - 8:30pm – Ernie’s Incredible Illucinations

After the success of last year's youth play reading, and the subsequent performance in the Warenar Theatre, this is a play reading evening especially for our youth members, but of course everyone is welcome to come along and join in the fun!

We plan to start the evening with a selection of prepared pieces. So if you have a poem, a short sketch, or a monologue you’d like to perform this is your chance! We’re open to whatever takes your fancy as long as it’s less than 5 minutes in length.

For the second part of the evening we will be continuing with this season’s theme of Alan Ayckbourn, and reading Ernie’s Incredible Illucinations. This is Aykbourn’s most enduring play for children and has been performed in schools and youth theatres all around the world for over forty years! Ernie’s incredible imagination is alarming his parents. They go to the doctor in search of a cure. Once they’re there, they discover Ernie’s ‘illucinations’ are more powerful than they realised. Everything Ernie imagines – from secret agents to a boxing granny – becomes real.

If you’re interested in performing please get in touch with Lou at chair@aatg.nl

ABC Treehut, Lange Poten 23/27, The Hague
All welcome, 18:30 - 20:30

'Checking Out' and '16 Minutes' - One Night, Two Plays

23rd May 2017

'Checking out', written by Jo Chandler, is the story of Sandra’s visit to her successful daughter, Kerry-Ann. But tensions soon arise as it is revealed just how embarrassed Kerry-Ann is that her mother acts so crassly and is happy to work at a supermarket, whereas Kerry-Ann has pulled herself up the social ladder. But is all as it seems?

'16 minutes' written by Matteo Pasquini, centres around Ulin, who returns home, having lived in “The South”, and who meets up with long-time friend, Mabur, to have lunch. Ulin realises that there have been many changes, both in his country and his friend and strange new rules introduced by the government "to enhance the happiness and the safety of the people" include how long the national dish should be cooked for!

This dark drama will challenge your perceptions on the way modern ‘spin’ government works.

The ticket price for this show will include a drink in the KS Paradijs bar directly after the performance. Enjoy a drink on us as your discuss the shows!

'Wild Floweres' and 'Checking Out'

14th May 2017

'Wild Flowers' written by Marlis, is a short musical about a group of slightly jaded performers who never really made it and never will. Set in the dressing room of a seedy theatre as they prepare for another show, they talk, bitch and gossip about their (love) lives, expectations and disappointments. Interspersing this they burst into song. With classic Motown hits, this toe tapping, fun musical romp will make you laugh as you repress your desire to sing along with truly great songs.

'Checking out', written by Jo Chandler, is the story of Sandra’s visit to her successful daughter, Kerry-Ann. But tensions soon arise as it is revealed just how embarrassed Kerry-Ann is that her mother acts so crassly and is happy to work at a supermarket, whereas Kerry-Ann has pulled herself up the social ladder. But is all as it seems?
