Tangle Company: Doctor Faustus

Tangle Company: Doctor Faustus

Tangle presents

Christopher Marlowe’s


"He that loves pleasure must for pleasure fall"

Faustus is a respected but frustrated scholar. He dreams of knowledge beyond the realm of men – of all things that move beyond the quiet poles, the mysteries of the universe, the secrets of kings; a knowledge that will lead to great power and eternize his legacy.

This unquenchable desire for fame drives him to master the metaphysics of magicians and he summons the demon Mephastophilis. Despite his own doubts and Mephastophilis’ warnings, the fated doctor demands he strike a deal with Lucifer – Faustus’ soul for twenty-four years of omnipotence.

Drunk with his new powers he travels the world gaining unmatched notoriety the cost of which is infinitely high as the damned hour approaches.

Tangle, South West England’s African Caribbean theatre company transpose this renaissance classic to our times. Music and song is interweaved with rousing performances from a trinity of actors in this unique version of Christopher Marlowe’s renowned tale.

John Mills

John Mills

John Mills - Classical Guitar & The Archaeus  String Quartet

Play Vivaldi, Cherubini, Ravel  and Argentinian guitar masters.

John Mills is the only remaining pupil of Segovia to be performing in public. Internationally  renowned for his Segovia like sumptuous sounds,  thousands of amateur guitarists in the UK have learned from his guitar tutors. For many he is “the guitarists’ guitarist”

The Archaeus quartet have a 27 year history of appearing at prestige venues such as the Wigmore hall and Purcell Room, and recording  the music of interesting often neglected composers such as Leonard Salzedo,York Bowen, Cyril Scott, and Ethel Smyth.

If you like the Four Seasons you will love the glorious Vivaldi concerto being played in this concert, and the cheering tunefulness of the Guitar Quintet by Boccherini. And all this comes with the contrasting adventurous elegance of Ravel ( always one for a bit of Spanish dash), and the rich rhythms  of the Argentinian guitar masters De Gese, Crespo, and Morel.

Journey's End

Journey's End

Journey’s End

By R C Sherriff

Operation Michael was a major German military offensive during the first world war and began the Spring Offensive at dawn on 21st March 1918. It was designed to separate the British and French forces and capture the ports supplying the allied troops, bringing the war to an end. The offensive moved so quickly that the Germans could not re-ammunition the fast-moving front line and it failed. It is recognised as the battle that started the end of the war.

R.C. Sherriff’s powerful play is set in an officer dugout on the front line at St. Quentin, northern France, and opens as the new company is moving in to start its tour of duty on the night of Monday 18th March 1918. It explores the relationship between men dealing with the stresses and strains of war in their own ways. The company officers are a mix of public school boys and men promoted through the ranks.

First shown at The Apollo Theatre London, in December 1928, an unknown Laurence Olivier starred in the role of Captain Stanhope. It was aimed at a female audience, to explain what the men had experienced and were reluctant to talk about after the war. With a new film released on 2nd February 2018, the play is being promoted to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the end of WW1.

As the play is studied for GCSE English Literature, a discount is offered to school’s subject to terms and conditions.
