THERE is a feast of theatrical talent lining-up for your entertainment this week. Eyes down for the gist, says Sammy Jones...

The Wolverton Gilbert & Sullivan Society are back in play from Tuesday, with a new version of The Pirates of Penzance. Swash-buckling pirates and bumbling policemen are seeking to protect the welfare of the Major General’s array of vulnerable, attractive young daughters.

You’ve got until Saturday, April 2 to sit back and view.

Stantonbury Campus Theatre is hosting and the curtain rises at 7.30pm.

Tickets are £15 with some concessions avaiable.

Call MK 262250.

At Stantonbury Campus tomorrow night, The Caucasian Chalk Circle is given an airing.

Bertolt Brecht’s most famous piece of work is also one of the most famous pieces of the 20th century.

After sacrificing everything to protect a child abandoned in the heat of civil war, a servant girl is made to confront the boy’s biological mother in a legal contest over who deserves to keep him.

The judge calls on an ancient tradition – the chalk circle – to resolve the dispute as the play builds to an unforgettable, unimaginable conclusion.

Tickets are £12.50 and £10 and show time is 7.30pm.

At The Chrysalis Theatre from Wednesday, The Longueville Little Theatre Company present performances of Beyond Reasonable Doubt, by Jeffrey Archer.

‘Guilty, or not guilty?’ is the question facing audiences as the courttoom drama plays out in the first half, and then ticket-holders will act as the jury in part two.

Do you have what it takes to decide Beyond Reasonable Doubt if the murderer is guilty or not?

Performances run to April 2. Tickets are £7 and £9. Call 07979 403517.
