Mary Queen of Scots explores the turbulent life of the charismatic Mary Stuart.

Queen of France at 16 and widowed at 18, Mary defies pressure to remarry.  Instead, she returns to her native Scotland to reclaim her rightful throne.

But Scotland and England fall under the rule of the compelling Elizabeth I. Each young Queen beholds her “sister” in fear and fascination.

Rivals in power and in love, and female regents in a masculine world, the two must decide how to play the game of marriage versus independence.

Determined to rule as much more than a figurehead, Mary asserts her claim to the English throne, threatening Elizabeth’s sovereignty.

Betrayal, rebellion, and conspiracies within each court imperil both thrones - and change the course of history.

Bronte SistersBrontë

by Polly Teale

Meavy Parish Hall

Tuesday 12th November, 7:30pm
Tickets: £10, from Tavonians or The Royal Oak

A beautiful and lively evocation of the real and imagined worlds of the Brontë family.

Brontë by Polly Teale dramatically illustrates the highs and lows the family experienced from 1845 when the sisters’ brother Branwell returned home in disgrace, plagued by his addictions, bringing turmoil to the household.  Throughout this period each of the young women continued to write their now famous stories, using their own lives and shared experiences to create their brilliant characters.  Polly Teale’s clever dramatisation matches the creative genius of the three sisters and the anguish they each experience, suffering the highs of success and the lows of their losses, whilst bringing the characters to life.

Stuart Waterworth, director of Brontë for the Tavonians, says:

“I first came across this play a few years ago when a friend of mine was directing it.  It sounded interesting and I immediately bought a copy.  I found it to be clever and exciting.  The play, as with any family, has laughter and tears, satisfaction and frustration, love and loss. 

Tavonians“It is perhaps one of the most challenging plays the Tavonians have tackled for some time.

With an enthusiastic cast it promises to make the autumnal evenings glow.”

 

Tickets £10, available from The Royal Oak, Meavy and online at www.tavonians.org.uk.

When a new toy called “Forky” joins Woody and the gang, a road trip alongside old and new friends reveals how big the world can be for a toy.

Woody, Buzz Lightyear and the rest of the gang embark on a road trip with Bonnie and a new toy named Forky. The adventurous journey turns into an unexpected reunion as Woody’s slight detour leads him to his long-lost friend Bo Peep. As Woody and Bo discuss the old days, they soon start to realize that they’re two worlds apart when it comes to what they want from life as a toy.  

As Woody and Bo say goodbye, Woody becomes hesitant in returning with Bonnie. With some encouragement from Buzz, Woody decides to stay with Bo and help lost toys find owners. Buzz and the gang give Woody and Bo a goodbye hug and the two groups go their separate ways.
