Westend müsste London sein, ja.

Ich freu mich! Ob es The Caretaker sein könnte? Ahh, wir hatten noch ein Stück von ihm in der Oberstufe, aber mir fällt der Name nicht mehr ein.

Sorry, ich weiß, wieder viele Tweets ...

Aber, Kurzzusammenfassung: John spielt in "The Hothouse", im "Trafalgar Studios"-Theater:

http://www.trafalgar-studios.co.uk/

Er spielt "Gibbs", Simon Russel Beale spielt "Roote". Regie führt Jamie Lloyd.

Vermutlich im Mai, dazu hab ich aber jetzt keine Quelle gefunden. Ich hoffe, es sind nicht genau die Pfingstferien, da muß ich hier nämlich meine Kollegin 2 Wochen lang vertreten ... (war ja klar).

Danke für die Zusammenfassung, Jessie!

Mein Gefühlszustand: :excited:

Ich kenne das Stück noch nicht, aber es geht wohl mehr in die Richtung Komödie (tragic/black), was mich SEHR freut. Ich glaube fast, ich warte mit meiner Schottlandbuchung noch bis ich die genauen Theaterdaten weiß. Wäre blöd, wenn sich das überschneiden würde.

Dabei wollte ich dieses Jahr doch mal in den Globe gehen und mir da ein Stück angucken, weil ich dachte, John macht bestimmt nichts theatermäßig 2013. Tja, so kann man sich irren. ^^

Ich habe das Stück jetzt gelesen. Heute war mal schönes Wetter und so habe ich eine Stunde in der Sonne verbracht und gelesen. :relax:

Der Anfang bietet viel Komik, aber zum Ende hin wird es dann schon sehr düster.

Ich konnte mir John in der Rolle des Gibb schon sehr gut vorstellen. So hat das Lesen doppelt Spaß gemacht. Jetzt muss ich nur noch Karten ordern...

Tickets zu gewinnen!

The Hothouse war super! John ist brilliant, sein Grinsen!! So gefällig dem Chef gegenüber, so aufgesetzt, so falsch ... So hintergründig.

Das Stück ist wild, z. T. ganz schön irr, aber auch total lustig! Johns Figur ist manchmal fast irritierend in seiner "Gefälligkeit" seinem Chef gegenüer. Pedantisch auch. Er hat einen altmodischen Anzug an, dazu die Brille mit dem dicken Rand. Außerdem trägt er drunter 'ne Strickjacke und die farblich dazu passenden Socken!!

Beim Intervall war keiner sicher, ist das jetzt Pause, sollen wir klatschen?? Leider ist das Stück nicht sonderlich lang, mal wieder ... Ging nicht pünktlich los und um 20 nach 9 war schon Schluß. Reihe A ist AUF der Bühne, A und B sind Stühle, der Rest die normalen Sessel für's Publikum. Es gibt auch Stühle hinter der Bühne, die sind sozusagen auch Auf der Bühne.

Leider hat sich John dann davongeschlichen ... Er sit vorne raus, relativ spät (sie hatten noch drinks). Und irendwelche Idioten haben ihn wohl quer über die Straße verfolgt, sind ihm nachgerannt, wie sie erfahren haben, Wir sind natürlich nicht mit. Haben nur gefragt, ob er wirklich weg ist. War er.

Sunnynight hatte das Glück, ihn zu sehen, wie er rein ist. Stage Door. Da war ich leider erst am Piccadilly Circus ...

Aber ich komm ja nochmal. Und hoffe auf mehr!!

Photo Coverage: THE HOTHOUSE Starring Simon Russell Beale!

John Heffernan (Lush), Harry Melling (Lamb), Clive Rowe (Tubb), Christopher Timothy (Lobb) and Indira Varma (Miss Cutts) will join the previously announced Simon Russell Beale (Roote) and John Simm (Gibbs) to complete the cast for The Hothouse, Jamie Lloyd Productions' second show for Trafalgar Studios.

The Hothouse is part of an exciting season of work for Trafalgar Transformed, a joint initiative between director Jamie Lloyd (Donmar's Passion, Broadway's Cyrano de Bergerac, The National Theatre's She Stoops to Conquer, Royal Court's The Pride) and Howard Panter. It comes hot on the heels of the critically acclaimed and sold out Macbeth, starring James McAvoy. The Hothouse, with design by award-winning Soutra Gilmour, runs from 4 May to 3 August, with the press night on 9 May 2013.

It's Christmas Day in a nameless state-run mental institution where the inmates are subjected to a tirade of mindless cruelty. A maniacal and self-obsessed leader breeds a contagion of hierarchical savagery amongst his staff, who thrive on a noxious diet of delusion and deceit.

The day got off to a lousy start! A death and a birth. Absolutely bloody scandalous! Is it too much to ask - to keep the place clean?

Under a veil of devilish wit and subversive humour, Pinter's biting political commentary on the perils of unchecked power is as vital and pertinent today as when it was written in the 50s.

John Heffernan's (Lush) theatre credits include Love and Information at the Royal Court, The Physicists at the Donmar Warehouse, She Stoops to Conquer, Emperor And Galilean, After The Dance, The Habit of Art, Revenger's Tragedy and Major Barbara all for The National Theatre, The Last Duchess at Hampstead Theatre, Richard II at the Tobacco Factory, Love Love Love at Paines Plough, Carrie's War at the Apollo Theatre and King Lear, The Seagull, King John, Romeo and Juliet and Much Ado About Nothing all for the RSC.

Clive's screen credits include All the Small Things, Doctor Who, Tracy Beaker, Dalziel & Pascoe, Networked, Casualty, Bloodrights, Manderlay and Crime Strike.

Christopher Timothy's (Lobb) theatre credits include The Living Room at Jermyn Street Theatre, The Diary of Anne Frank at York Theatre Royal/UK Tour, Season's Greetings on a UK Tour, Haunting Julia at Lichfield Garrick, All the Fun of the Fair at the Garrick Theatre, The Grapes of Wrath at Chichester Festival Theatre/ETT UK Tour, Tons of Money and Hayfever for the Peter Hall Company and Heroes and The Safari Party on UK Tours.

The Hothouse: Pinter's nightmare

The Hothouse was written in 1958, but the author's second play now seems chilling in its prescience. Matt Trueman talks to the director and stars of a new production


Matt Trueman Wednesday 08 May 2013



Harold Pinter didn't think much of his second play initially. "It was heavily satirical and quite useless," he wrote later. "I never began to like any of the characters, they really didn't live at all. So I discarded the play at once." The script went into a drawer in 1958 and stayed there for 22 years.

Few modern plays have been so thoroughly rehabilitated as The Hothouse. The playwright's official biographer, theatre critic Michael Billington, calls it "one of Pinter's best", and now the play is about to get its second West End run, courtesy of the sparky young director Jamie Lloyd, with two former Hamlets, Simon Russell Beale and John Simm, leading the cast.

It's a curious piece; immediately identifiable as one of Pinter's and yet remarkably unlike any of his other plays. Set in a state-run sanatorium where the so-called "patients" are actually political dissidents undergoing various excruciating corrective treatments, The Hothouse shows the casual inhumanity and corruption that creeps into institutional authority and festers beneath anodyne bureaucracy. One patient, 6457, has recently died. Another, 6459, has given birth, after being raped by a staff member. Roote, the man in charge, is apparently unaware of either situation, despite having signed the death certificate and met the pregnant woman days earlier. Meanwhile, inmates are restrained and electrocuted. Muffled screams seep through the walls.

All this, Pinter handles with a broad, over-the-top comedy. Several scenes have the rat-a-tat patter of old-school vaudeville and there's even an exploding cigar. It's like Kafka gone giddy and its closest theatrical cousin is Joe Orton's farce What the Butler Saw, written more than a decade later. "He really does write with a music-hall rhythm," says Lloyd, "The lighter you play it, the more horrific it becomes."

Having previously directed three of Pinter's plays, Lloyd, 32, got to know the playwright before his death in 2008. "I spoke to Harold about which ones I might want to do and The Hothouse was top of my list, mainly because it's so funny, but it's also dripping with subtext. For me, that's the mark of a great play."

Simm and Russell Beale agreed, accepting their roles almost immediately. Simm had read the playwright's entire canon while doing Betrayal in Sheffield last year and "The Hothouse stood out. I remember saying to anybody that would listen: 'Have you read this play? Have you ever heard of this?' It's a buried masterpiece." However, it very nearly didn't surface at all. Over the years, Pinter gave several reasons why he shelved the play. He wrote The Hothouse after The Birthday Party's disastrous premiere and, discouraged, Pinter felt it stood no chance with critics or audiences. It was too overtly political, too directly satirical. "The characters were so purely cardboard."

Then, in the late Seventies, he changed his mind, a decision he explained in the original production's programme: "It was a fantasy when I wrote it, but now it has become, I think, far more relevant. Reality has overtaken it." By that point, the Soviet Union was detaining political dissidents in asylums, Northern Irish prisoners were rebelling against the authorities at the Maze prison, near Belfast, and Pinter himself was becoming increasingly politically active. He directed the world premiere himself at the Hampstead Theatre in 1980, before its West End transfer. By the time of the acclaimed National Theatre revival in 2007, there were further political parallels with Guantanamo Bay and artistic comparisons to Sarah Kane's Cleansed and Martin McDonagh's The Pillowman.

"It's a play about unchecked state power and the decisions leaders make – spurious decisions that are potentially dangerous – in the name of a better society," says Lloyd. "You could argue that's what's happening at the moment: an effectively unelected government is making decisions in the national interest, all with a gloss of 'We're fucking you over, but it's all for you.'" Mischievously, Lloyd points out that the play will run at the Trafalgar Studios, "just a few hundred metres away from the centre of British politics". However, pictures on the rehearsal-room wall are not of Coalition ministers, but of Captain Mainwaring and Kim Jong-un, gazing through binoculars and surrounded by generals. Lloyd finds the latter image both terrifying and absurd. "What's going on in these people's heads? Do these men inflict horrific pain or make some horrifying decision and then go home and weep?" He's keen to remind audiences that The Hothouse's institutionalised staff are human: "Roote's a mini-dictator in a microcosm of society and yet he's clearly in a lot of pain." Ultimately, he's simply following orders. "What's interesting is that we're all capable of this."

"It's that awful madness of a self-contained community," Russell Beale chips in, "You can convince yourself of anything, not least the moral worth of what you're doing. Totalitarian states absolutely rely on that self-delusion."

To that, add other forms of coercion. In 1954, a young, cash-strapped Pinter signed up for medical testing at the Maudsley hospital for "ten-bob or something". He was given headphones, through which, unexpectedly, an extremely loud noise was played. "I was trembling all over," he recalled years later. "I was well aware of being used for an experiment and feeling quite powerless." Lloyd sees the glint of Orwell in that experience and in the play it inspired: "At the time, shock treatment was brand new. It must have felt like science fiction." That extends beyond the patients and, for Lloyd, none of the staff show their true selves either: "It's like everyone's a CCTV camera. You can't say what you think because you have no idea what someone else will do with that information." Therein lies the play's extraordinary subtext. It's never entirely clear what has actually taken place; neither 6457's death nor 6459's rape are satisfactorily accounted for. "It's a like a huge puzzle," says Simm, "It's so ambiguous. It could be anything." "I love that mystery," adds Russell Beale, "His great skill as a dramatist was to give the impression of threat and aggression without actually explaining it."

That's typical Pinter, of course, but interestingly most of the cast, with the exception of Indira Varma who worked with him several times, are relative newbies to his plays. Even Russell Beale, an actor celebrated for his versatility, has only done two shorts, A Slight Ache and Landscape. Lloyd likes that: it helps to break the norm. "These established rules start to appear: how you play Pinter. When I worked with him, he'd often say, 'Bollocks to the pauses. Be free with it.' He was tired of being seen as a punctuation tyrant." Varma confirms that: "He liked it to be accurate, but he wasn't there with his nose in the script."

But escaping the tropes isn't as simple as that. "I'm always surprised by the softer edges," says Russell Beale. "At one point, Roote's given a Christmas cake and twice he says, 'A cake? For me?' I don't know if you allowed to go soft in a Pinter play, but for this man – possibly a murderer and a rapist – Christmas is... " – he lets out a camp, excitable gasp – "Christmas!" Hanging over that, is the fact that Pinter played Roote himself in 1995. "I knew Harold very vaguely just before he died, so I know his voice," says Russell Beale. "The real difficulty is getting that out of my head." The Hothouse, so recognisably and yet so atypically Pinter, might help us all do that.

'The Hothouse', Trafalgar Studios, London SW1 (0844 871 7632) to 3 August

John Simm, however, is flawless as the conniving Gibbs suggesting the perennial company man, even down to the pens in his breast pocket, with all the instincts of a serpent.

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/culture/theat…ios-review.html

John Simm proves the perfect foil as the apparently bland and solicitous subordinate who is indeed “taking the wee-wee”, and his character becomes increasingly cruel as the action progresses.

http://www.independent.co.uk/arts-entert…re-8606710.html

Simm had read the playwright's entire canon while doing Betrayal in Sheffield last year and "The Hothouse stood out. I remember saying to anybody that would listen: 'Have you read this play? Have you ever heard of this?' It's a buried masterpiece."

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/art…o=feeds-newsxml

The new play stars Life On Mars actor John Simm, Simon Russell Beale and Christopher Timothy.



The hard work's over! The Hothouse star John Simm and his wife Kate Magowan



Time for a pint: John joins his co-stars Indira Varma and Simon Russell Beale at the after-party at One Whitehall Place

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/rev…ntin-Letts.html

John Simm does well as Roote’s coldly efficient sidekick, Gibbs, and the show is certainly pacy and frequently watchable. But Indira Varma as temptress Miss Cutts (boobs like ice cream cones) and John Heffernan as an apparently gay dipsomaniac undo any menace Mr Simm brings to the show.

http://westend.broadwayworld.com/article…-Beale-20130507

http://www.thefancarpet.com/NewsPage.aspx?n_id=7590

http://www.thetimes.co.uk/tto/arts/stage…dard-2013_05_09
(Ich hoffe, jemand postet den vollen Artikel irgendwo, ist nur für Abonnenten.)

http://metro.co.uk/2013/05/09/director-j…st-end-3734108/

http://www.londontheatre.co.uk/londonthe…ehothouse13.htm

At the beginning of the play, the deviously-efficient and slimily self-confident Gibbs (excellently played by John Simm) informs Roote that one of the inmates, 6457, has died.

More scary and more sinister, though, is John Simm's Gibbs who seems to relish the idea of torturing the naive, but oddly enthusiastic member of staff, Lamb (Harry Melling), whose job it is to test the locks.

http://www.independent.co.uk/news/people…er-8604092.html

He [SRB] rarely goes to the cinema, and doesn't bother with television. It is for this last reason that he wasn't overfamiliar with the work of his Hothouse co-star John Simm. "I had to confess I'd never seen him in Doctor Who or The Village or … what's the other one?" "Life on Mars?" "That's the one. But I have to say, he is a terrific stage actor."


Und Marc Warren war wohl auch da. Ganz ohne Haare oder so.

Wir sind wieder da, wie die meisten Leser Leserinnen dieses Forums wohl mitbekommen haben durften. :P
Ein ausführlicher Bericht folgt später. Hier sind schon mal ein paar Fotos von vor dem Theater.



My name is Sam Tyler. DCI Sam Tyler.
That much I do know! The rest is anyone's guess.
Because one minute I was in 2006, the next I'm in 1973!!!
So the question now is: What happened? Why am I here?

Hach, da möcht man doch gleich wieder hin! Warum kann ich nicht hier einfach in den Zug steigen und bin in 1 Stunde dort?? Oder 2 ...

John Heffernan hat sich am Bein verletzt, deshalb hat die letzten Tage sein Understudy Nick Lawson die Rolle des Lush gespielt. Heute war er aber selber wieder da - Lush mit Gehstock! Hat aber auch irgendwie gepaßt, und es war schön, ihn selbst in der Rolle zu sehen. Laut "Zeugenaussagen" war der Understudy zwar nicht schlecht, aber es sollen Welten dazwischengelegen haben. Das Stück läuft jetzt schon so lang, das Team ist einfach eingespielt und erfahren, wenn sich da was ändert, dann paßt halt einfach was nicht.

Was noch schön war:



John kam recht schnell raus und war durchaus willig, für die wartenden Fans zu unterschreiben und für Fotos zu posieren. :-) Gut gelaunt und fröhlich, für alle da, aber dann hatte er es eilig und ist davongerannt. Im wahrsten Sinne des Wortes. Naja, flott gejoggt. (Das wartende Auto war diesmal nicht für ihn.)

John war (doch) bei der press night für "The Pride", das jetzt auch unter der Regie von Jamie Lloyd nach "The Hothouse" im Trafalgar Transformed läuft:

Seltsamerweise waren keine Fotos von ihm auf Twitter aufgetaucht, @TrafTransformed hatte vom "roten Teppich" berichtet ... Aber jetzt gibt es doch welche von drinnen!

Mit einem lieben Dank an sunnynight!
