They attempt to cope with the death and destruction that surrounds them by secretly building a small cemetery for animals, marking their graves with crosses stolen from a local graveyard. In the end Gendarmes escort Paulette to a Red Cross camp. The film is noted for the guitar music played by Narciso Yepes.

FINDING JOY

at Coach House Theatre, Malvern

 

The funny and fearless sell-out mask production from the UK’s leading full mask company. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll find joy!

Joy is 83 today: she’s feisty, loves to dance, and is losing her memory. Her grandson Danny is rebellious, bright and always getting into trouble. When Danny decides to look after Joy, they discover a shared playfulness and growing love. But is that enough to face the challenges ahead?  Approaching the subject of dementia with humour and humanity, award-winning Finding
Joy has performed to audiences across the world, including China, Germany, Spain, Norway, Denmark, Finland and the UK. Praised by press and public alike for its consummate full mask skills, engaging storytelling, physical dexterity and emotional insight, the company continues to involve and engage audiences across borders and boundaries with its wordless theatre.

Suitable for 12 years and upwards, Finding Joy is accessible to hearing and d/Deaf audiences alike. It is supported by Arts Council England and Worcestershire County Council, and was developed in association with The Hereford Courtyard, with inspiration from movement-play specialists JABADAO.

★★★★★ “A genuinely original, beautiful piece of work” Argus Angel winner, Brighton Fringe Festival

THE RAILWAY CHILDREN

Adapted for the stage by Dave Simpson
From the novel by E Nesbit

By arrangement with Samuel French Ltd

A superb adaptation for the stage of E Nesbit’s classic novel. Following the wrongful arrest of their father, an Edwardian family are forced to move from their London home to the country and endure a life of genteel poverty. Their modest house, “Three Chimneys”, is close to a railway line which becomes the children’s main interest and source of many adventures, shared with the family of the station porter. Saving lives, rescuing a Russian refugee, looking after an injured schoolboy, the children enlist the help of a wealthy passenger to get their father out of prison and reunite the family.

The story was first performed as a play in 1984 at the Coliseum in London, became a famous film starring Jenny Agutter as Roberta and Bernard Cribbins as Perks, and continues to be performed regularly, most recently as a musical. Malvern Theatre Players reprise their sell-out 1990 Malvern Festival Theatre production in their new home at the Coach House Theatre.

A Christmas treat for all the family.

          A brilliant adaptation

                    Chuffing marvellous

                              A classic masterpiece

                                        It’s perfect

                                                  Glows with innocence

                                                            A First Class journey
