WINDOWS

  • 22 August — 9 September 2017

“It’s ‘ardly worth while to do these winders. You clean’em, and they’re dirty again in no time.
It’s like life. And people talk o’ progress. What a sooperstition!”

Celebrating the 150th birthday of novelist and playwright John Galsworthy, the first professional UK production in 85 years of Windows by John Galsworthy opens at the Finborough Theatre for a three week limited season on Tuesday, 22 August 2017 (Press Nights: Thursday, 24 August and Friday, 25 August 2017 at 7.30pm).

1922. In the aftermath of the First World War, Britain is left questioning the relevance of the ideals and values for which it fought, but which society seems to have forgotten.

When writer Geoffrey March proposes to his family that they employ a young woman with a questionable past as their new maid, his high-minded ideals are suddenly challenged by those around him. Finding support for his beliefs in the girl’s father, a philosophical window cleaner, he follows the path which he believes to be decent and moral. But when his son begins to fall in love with her, the family discover that ideals can have serious consequences…

Described by John Galsworthy as “a comedy for idealists and others”, Windows is a fascinating exploration of class and of a generation struggling to catch up with their lives in a world that has been altered forever by war.

I Wish To Die Singing - Voices from the Armenian Genocide

http://oberonbooks.com/die-singing

“Who, after all, today remembers the annihilation of the Armenians?” – Adolf Hitler, 1939

I Wish To Die Singing – Voices From The Armenian Genocide is a controversial documentary drama uncovering the forgotten secrets and atrocities of a denied genocide. Following several characters through these traumatic events, the play includes eye-witness reportage, images, music, poetry from Armenia's greatest poets, and verbatim survivors testimonies from one of the greatest historical injustices of all time.

The Armenian Genocide of 1915-16 was perpetrated by the Ottoman Turkish Government against the Armenians, a Christian minority in a Muslim state. Up to one and a half million people died. To this day, the Turkish government refuses to admit that genocide ever took place.
