Captioned performances of The Misanthrope to be staged

on in

Several theatres are set to be home to captioned performances of 17th century Molière play The Misanthrope while it tours in a version by Roger McGough, reports STAGETEXT.

The first of these takes place this very evening at Cambridge Arts Theatre, a venue in the historical city of Cambridge. 

Surrey’s Richmond Theatre will have a captioned performance on April 4th, a few days after the Easter break takes place this weekend (from March 29th to April 1st). Then the Oxford Playhouse will be home to a captioned staging April 10th.

April 18th will see a performance of this sort at Truro’s Hall for Cornwall, and April 24th at Exeter’s Northcott Theatre.

The tour will later move on to Brighton, where a captioned performance will occur on May 3rd, and May 9th will see captions available at Southampton’s Nuffield Theatre.

The English Touring Theatre production stars the likes of Simon Coates as Philinte, George Potts as Acaste and Neil Caple as Dubois.

Another well known play that has captioned performances coming up is The Mousetrap. Though not quite as old as The Misanthrope, this piece also has quite some history and has been performed for more than six decades!

London’s St Martin’s Theatre will next stage a captioned performance of this Agatha Christie show on August 6th.

Performances of this nature are also due to take place at the Theatre Royal in Norwich (April 25th), the Theatre Royal in Nottingham (May 18th) and the Sunderland Empire (October 17th).

Christie of course penned a huge range of mystery fiction, including Murder On The Orient Express, And Then There Were None and The Murder of Roger Ackroyd. The Mousetrap play made its debut back in the early 1950s.
