A Flintlock Theatre Production, commissioned by Farnham Maltings and Greenwich Theatre
An Enemy of the People
Written by Henrik Ibsen, Adapted by Robin Colyer and Anna Glynn
Directed by Robin Colyer
Having rejuvenated the fortunes of a crumbling town, eminent doctor Tamsin Stockmann expects to be hailed as its saviour once again when she exposes a major public health risk. But the town’s prosperity hangs in the balance and opposition grows. Will she will lauded as hero of the hour or will Dr. Stockmann be declared an enemy of the people?
Employing their signature high-energy storytelling, music and live digital interaction, Flintlock’s irreverent style brings Ibsen’s masterpiece into the 21st century in a searing examination of fake news, whistleblowing and who really wields power in contemporary Britain.
Age Recommendation 12+

A rehearsed reading of The End of the Line
Written and directed by Lizzie Martin
Have you ever felt that everything has gone horribly wrong, that the world has come crashing down and you just wish you could run away from it all? After a mistake spirals wildly out of control, Hayden flees his home and finds himself in the middle of nowhere. The end of the line. Here he meets a group with problems of their own, which becomes a welcome distraction. Dealing with love, drink, and self-discovery, is running really the answer? Will he ever leave?'
What is a rehearsed reading…?
A rare opportunity to hear a writers debut play read for the very first time. Actors will have scripts in hands and you, the audience, will be asked to give feedback at the end. This is an integral part of the script writing process, please do come and support.

By James Forsyth from the book Screwtape Letters by C.S Lewis
Directed by Sophie Lee and Charlie Willis
Screwtape is a witty and thought-provoking adaptation of C. S. Lewis’ fascinating book The Screwtape Letters by, a masterpiece of satire. Screwtape, a demon and highly placed assistant of ‘Our Father Below’ and his nephew Wormwood, meddle with the lives of human beings on earth. They bring the audience a sly and ironic portrayal of human life which captures both the wildly comic and deeply serious nature of Lewis’ original text. Although entertaining, Screwtape is also an alluringly challenging watch; presenting the audience with a new perspective of how integrated the physical and spiritual worlds could be.
