  Thursday 21st June 2018 @ 19.30   StoneCrabs Theatre Company presents a double bill of arresting international plays   Some Kind of Love Story by Arthur Miller   Inspired by the 1940s and 50s film noir genre, 'Some Kind of Love Story' is a dramatic gem: former lovers Angela and Tom meet one night to discuss the Felix Epstein case, which Tom has been trying to crack for five years. He is convinced Angela has privileged information, therefore holding the key to the innocent Felix's release from prison. But Angela will not tell. Is Tom ready for the truth? Miller hits back at the themes of American justice and the search for truth in a tale of corruption, drugs, power and abuse.   'Some Kind of Love Story' is written by Arthur Miller, famous for his celebrated plays such as 'The Crucible' and 'Death of A Salesman'.   ---   Tieta, The trial   'Tieta, The Trial' is a dark, comic LGBTQ play, adapted from the Brazilian novel 'Tieta do Agreste' by Nobel Prize nominee Jorge Amado. Featuring live music, storytelling and dance, 'Tieta, The Trial' takes the audience in an emotional rollercoaster blended with fact and fiction in equal measure.   Twenty-six years after being forced to leave his rural town, Antonio returns as Tieta, a trans woman and millionaire. Tieta promises to transform the town's fortunes, but there is a condition attached to her charity: justice. Is Tieta's call for justice, also a cry for revenge?   "Tieta, The Trial" project is supported by Arts Council of England In partnership with IWPride Arts Festival Sponsored by Aspect Plus   Dates and Times: 21st June 2018 @ 19.30 Tickets: Adults £14 | Concessions £12 Box Office: 02392 737370 |
