R&D by the Sea:  A Folk Musical by Philippa Herrick

R&D by the Sea is the Marine Theatre’s nurturing programme for new and developing work. It gives artists use of the theatre and its facilities, normally for a 5-day period, to develop their work. We’ve invited writers, actors, theatre makers and practitioners of all kinds to come to Lyme Regis. At the end of their week-long stay, we invite the artists to give a work-in-progress performance to share what they’ve found. With you.  Live folk music, songs and dance combine in this work-in-progress showing of an original new musical. Adapted from the epic novel, Toilers of the Sea by Victor Hugo, and fusing the worlds of folk music, physical theatre, contemporary dance and musical theatre, this is a tale of one man's quest to win love. A love story on an epic scale spanning 30 years.  Free  Marine Theatre  5.00pm

Grounded:  The Gate Theatre, Notting Hill

She’s a hot-rod F16 fighter pilot. She’s pregnant. Her career in the sky is over. Now, she sits in an air-conditioned trailer in Las Vegas flying remote-controlled drones over the Middle East. She struggles through surreal 12-hour shifts far from the battlefield, hunting terrorists by day and being a wife and mother by night. A gripping, compulsive new play that flies from the heights of lyricism to the shallows of workaday existence, and targets our assumptions about war, family, and what it is to be a woman. Supported by Arts Council England and Jerwood Charitable Foundation (Jerwood Young Designers Programme).  This tour is presented by House.

 A Walk with the French Lieutenant’s Woman
This walking tour focuses on the landscape that inspired the creator of The French Lieutenant’s Woman, acclaimed novelist John Fowles. First stop will be his last home, Belmont, and from there the walk will cross the sunlit cliff tops to the Undercliff nature reserve, which forms part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site. The walk visits places featured in the novel and film, which memorably starred Meryl Streep and Jeremy Irons. The best is left until last – as the walk reaches the secluded farmhouse that Fowles adored and the quirky workroom where he wrote The French Lieutenant’s Woman. There’s an opportunity to explore the grounds, take in the views of the sea and Undercliff that Fowles would have enjoyed, whilst listening to and discussing excerpts from the novel and Fowles' diaries.  Cost £25 per person.

Beta Testing
Beta Testing is a new kind of show- somewhere between a TED- talk, a Heath Robinson demonstration and a circus show. Circus Geeks are a brilliant trio of young jugglers who use their fascination with throwing and catching to explore a logical approach to life, a light hearted look at awkward social situations, and the misplaced fear of failure.  They’ll teach you the lingo, give you an insight into practicing the same trick over and over again, and show you why jugglers are terrified of fish.  Circus Geeks began life as a blog, set up after a late night conversation about juggling, art and how to make the perfect pizza.   Running time:  1hr (approx) followed by a post show talk.  Age suitability:  12+  Full Price: £10.00  Concessions: £8.00  TheatreFriends Discount Available  Workshop participants: £5.00  6.00pm Marine Theatre

Tenovus Cancer Care

volunteer to help in one of our shops!

At Tenovus Cancer Care our aims are simple. We want to help prevent, treat and find a cure for cancer. We do this by offering support, advice and treatment to cancer patients and their loved ones. We also promote healthy lifestyles and fund cancer research to find new ways to prevent it, diagnose it, and treat it. We do this where it is needed most - right at the heart of the community.

Here at Tenovus Cancer Care we’re always looking for amazing volunteers to help support us in the work we do. Friendly, helpful folk who care about their communities and people affected by cancer. There are loads of ways to get involved and you can help once or on a regular basis, as much or as little time as you can spare – whatever suits you.

Our shop in Lyme Regis just wouldn't be the same without our fantastic team of volunteers. But we always need more people to help! If you can spare a few hours a week (or more) and would like to offer your skills and time, we'd love to meet you! We’re looking for volunteers to give us a hand sorting and pricing our donations, create exciting window displays and to chat to the public about our work. You will meet loads of new people, gain loads of new skills and hopefully have loads of fun.

If you’d like to find out more you can call into our shop and have a chat with our Shop Manager, Sam, at 28 Broad Street, Lyme Regis, DT7 3QE or give her a call on 0129 7444 748.

…Or you can visit our website www.tenovuscancercare.org.uk where you can apply online.

We look forward to hearing from you!

For adults and children alike, it’s an unforgettable experience.
