Based on the 1980 film starring Jane Fonda, Lily Tomlin and, of course, Dolly Parton, the Tony-nominated musical adaptation of 9 to 5 premiered on Broadway in 2009. At its heart, 9 to 5 tells the story of three strong, determined women looking to make a difference in their workplace and their lives. Down, depressed and under the thumb of their sexist,  hypocritical boss, these unlikely friends set out to teach him a lesson, but learn a lot about themselves along the way.

The Drowsy Chaperone

Date/Time: 03 - 13 May @ 7.30pm. Sat matinees @ 2.30pm (no performance Sun or Mon)

Winner of five Tony Awards including Best Book of Musical and Best Original Score, The Drowsy Chaperone bursts to life on the Bridewell Theatre stage this May.

A Man sits at home, and looks for a cure for his “non-specific sadness”. He turns to his record collection and selects a little-known recording from the glory days of Broadway, “The Drowsy Chaperone”. As the record plays, we are transported into the world of a 1920s musical where there are gangsters, mistaken identities and a wedding that may or may not happen. While the musical comes to life around him, we not only learn more about the characters of the farcical production, but more about The Man and how he came to be sitting alone, feeling blue.

Both a riot of musical silliness, and a commentary on the transformative powers of story-telling, this short show will appeal to the theatre geek in all of us.

Much Ado About Nothing

Date/Time: 16 - 20 May @ 7.30pm. Sat matinee @ 3pm

Much Ado About Nothing is one of Shakespeare's later plays and a complex mix of darkness and light - as full of cruelty as humour, as much about malice and repressed desire as joy and openly declared love and as interested in what cannot be said as in the delights of speaking.

It is a play where words often mask rather than reveal the truth - Beatrice and Benedick constantly feign indifference to each other while revelling in their brilliant verbal sparring; Don John convinces those he envies that they have witnessed infidelity; Hero is declared dead but lives for a second wedding and Dogberry pompously uses words in a way that confuses and misleads everyone who hears them.

Rumour, gossip and eavesdropping abound - sometimes characters overhear the truth as when the simple men of the Watch uncover the plot to dishonour Hero, but more often they are deceived - Antonio believes that Don Pedro intends to woo Hero for himself, Beatrice and Benedick are duped into confessing their love for each other and Claudio is tricked into rejecting Hero at the altar in the erroneous belief that she has been unfaithful.

Fortunately, misunderstandings are eventually resolved and the play ends with a joyous celebration of love and marriage, with just the odd loose end to add a little interest.

Unoriginal Sin

Date/Time: 24 - 26 May @ 7.30pm. Sat 27 May @ 4pm

Bill is a rich 35-year-old alcoholic with the sex drive of a bull on steroids, in the throes of a cynical divorce from Jenny, his match in wit but not love. Miles is Bill's lawyer, who is switching loyalties due to the trifling matter of Bill shagging Miles's wife.

The acrimonious proceedings, and Bill's outlook on life, are disrupted by Eve, a never-been-kissed babe in the woods. She's engaged to Neville, a librarian in every sense of the word, and her father is a Father (don't they take vows of celibacy?). Everyone's cheating but no one's winning!

The House of Bernarda Alba

Date/Time: 20 - 24 June @ 7.30pm. Sat matinee @ 3pm

On the day Bernarda Alba buries her second husband, she imposes an 8-year mourning period on her household in accordance with her family tradition. Bernarda has 5 daughters, aged between 20 and 39, whom she has controlled inexorably and prohibited from any form of relationship.

Exchanging the oppressive heat of early twentieth century Southern Spain for the oppressive rain of 1950s England, this brand new translation of Lorca's masterpiece distils the essence of the original play, showing the parallels between 1920s Andalucía and 1950s Sussex while maintaining the emotional drive of Lorca's study of class, grief and - overall - the earthshattering consequences of attempting to repress the human heart.

Little Women, the musical

Date/Time: 27 June - 01 July @ 7.30pm. Sat mat @ 2.30pm

“Some books are so familiar that reading them is like being home again.”

Against the backdrop of Civil War, aspiring writer Jo hides from life’s difficulties in her attic and pens stories of adventure.

With her father away, Jo and her sisters must learn to negotiate love, loss and life under the ever-loving watch of their beloved Marmee.

But despite tragedy and heartbreak, the March sisters discover that in reality the true adventure is life itself.

This much-loved musical adaptation of Louisa May Alcott’s classic novel is suitable for all the family and reminds us that sometimes when you dream, your dreams come true.

Opera In the City

Date/Time: 01 - 12 August

This summer, the Bridewell Theatre in the heart of the City of London will become the home of new and innovative opera productions.

The two-weeks opera festival Opera in the City is curated by Time Zone Theatre Ltd and their artistic director Pamela Schermann, and will present a range of operatic works. In the exciting performance space of the Bridewell Theatre, the festival will show innovative takes on well-known operas as well as rarely performed, forgotten masterpieces. The focus lies on pieces with a strong narrative which will appeal to both regular opera audiences and those new to opera.

One of the highlights of the festival is the project “Fin de Siècle“ which focuses on works composed around 1900. This series is spearheaded by Time Zone Theatre’s acclaimed production of Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov’s opera Mozart & Salieri, which premiered in 2016 and will finish its UK Tour with their final three performances in London at the Bridewell Theatre.

The full line-up will be presented in April 2017.

The project “Fin de Siècle“ is generously supported by Golsoncott Foundation.
