Thursday 15 June – National Theatre Live screening: Fleabag with Phoebe Waller-Bridge
A group of us had a very enjoyable night out at the Kiln Cinema to see an NT Live showing of Phoebe Waller-Bridge’s Fleabag which was the precursor of the play and then the very successful television series. Lots of laughs, some very risqué moments and some very moving moments too!
Friday 6th January – The Wife of Willesden at the Kiln Theatr
Critically acclaimed, multi-award winning, best-selling author Zadie Smith‘s ‘irresistably rambunctious’ (The Telegraph) The Wife of Willesden transports Chaucer’s The Wife of Bath to 21st Century North West London.
Thursday 20th October – Handbagged at the Kiln Theatre
Fifteen of us had a very enjoyable outing to see the revival of Handbagged, a play about the relationship between HM the Queen and her Prime Minister during the 1980s, Mrs. Thatcher. For some of us, the play allowed us to remember key moments of the 1980s, for others it was a slice of history, which they are too young to remember. The six actors were all very good, the accents for the two main characters were spot on as were their costumes. The play was of course topical, some of us had a good laugh when Mrs. Thatcher said that she was not a quitter, on the very day that another PM had just done so!
