The ghost of Concorde? by Andy Kyle


1.  Potiche tonight!

Francois Ozon’s Potiche is a satirical take on the war between the sexes and classes that has everything you could want from a French film – music, humour, irreverence and most irresistibly, the pairing of Deneuve and Depardieu. Set in 1977 in a French provincial town, Potiche stars Deneuve as Suzanne Pujol, whose late father founded an umbrella factory which her husband, Robert, now runs with an intractable attitude to all his workers, except for his secretary, Nadège, towards whom he is nothing but tractable. Suzanne's place is in her very 70s kitchen and she seems to have contented herself with a life of domesticity. But when the workers go on strike and take her husband hostage, she steps in to manage the factory. To everyone’s surprise she proves herself a competent and assertive woman of action helped in no small way by union leader Babin (Depardieu), Suzanne’s former beau, who still holds a flame for her…

2.  Twelfth Night - The Search for Twins

Dartmouth’s Inn Theatre Company are celebrating their 10th Anniversary this summer with a wondrous production of Twelfth Night from August 7th to 11th 2012 – marking a return to their first ever production in 2003. They’re searching for a pair of twins to play the parts of Viola and Sebastian.

This year's director Paul Vincent, is delighted to be taking the reins for this very popular Shakespeare comedy and is running an all day workshop on Sunday January 29th starting at 10.30am at the Decks Youth Club in Ivy Lane (behind the Seale Arms pub), Dartmouth. The workshop is open to all that are interested in being involved, both on and off stage and it will be followed by auditions for Twelfth Night from 4pm to 6pm.

So, if you’ve always wanted to tread the boards or just be involved in a hugely-fun production, then please don’t hesitate to book a place on the workshop or register your interest. If you’re unable to attend this Sunday but would like to be involved, please let Jane know too. For more information please contact Jane Windsor Smith on 01803 833960, email click here or visit their website by clicking here.

So last word to Jane, “it’s a new year and new you so why not get involved in something that will be fun, rewarding, exhilarating, a chance to meet and make a huge variety of friends and in turn, could be life-changing!”  (photographs from Dartmouth News of Macbeth 2010)

  • The professional photographers at Dartmouth News had a very successful last year with many publications using their photography.  We were chuffed when the Inn Theatre Company sent out their press release with one of our images attached. Whenever we provide photography, regardless if we took it or if it was contributed, we always check quality, resolution, size and post process in PhotoShop to give outstanding results.  If you need us, if only to post process a dull image, just yell?
