Sometimes people are tired to go to the cinema to watch loud, over produced and rather futuristic films.

From the 3rd and until 21st July 2012, Propeller brings 2 great productions to London Hampstead Theatre:

Henry V: a total of 2h45 including the interval,

The Winter’s Tale: about the same length as the previous play.

Both plays are by William Shakespeare…just in case.

“…Propeller is renowned for combining a rigorous approach to the text with an exciting, physical aesthetic. Propeller engages its audience’s imagination and brings fresh understanding to classic plays. It’s Shakespeare rediscovered…”

Propeller is one of the most celebrated and innovative Shakespeare theatre companies, formed in the mid 1990’s after a successful run of Othello at The Watermill Theatre, Newbury.

To have all details regarding the July dates check the Tour Details page.

Such shows need sponsors of course.  Propeller has found The Touring Partnership, The Art Council of England, Coutts and Co to support these events.

The other interesting  fact is that Lifeworks – a charity based in Devon – will also get some help, because Propeller will be performing to raise money for the charity.

“…For children and young people with learning disabilities to fulfill their potential by providing them with new opportunities and skills that will lead to rewarding and active lives…”

A great choice & vision to share a lot of things in one unique action.

So, rather than stirring your brew endlessly, you know what’s on and where to go for a different night out.

Addition:

However, if you aren’t too keen for such plays, Propeller has plenty more to offer. Running from November 2012 until August 2013 will be Twelfth Night & The taming of the Shrew.
