Farewell to the Theatre, 2011

Jane Asher as Dorothy and Richard Cordery as Edward in the world premiere of 'Farewell to the Theatre' play, runned at The Rose Theatre, Kingston, Britain from Friday September 30th to Sunday October 30th 2011.

 
 







A famous actress decides that the time has come to retire. Margaret (Jane Asher), the grande dame du theatre, in Granville-Barker's play, comes to consult her solicitor and friend Edward (a gentle, injured giant of unrequited devotion in Richard Cordery's lovely performance). She talks to her lawyer about her reasons. And they remember the missed opportunities of the past, and contemplate the realities of the future. 
This extraordinarily beautiful one-act play was written at the height of the First World War and coincided with Granville Barker's own disillusionment with the possibility for a progressive theatre in Britain. But it's also a plea for the enduring value of theatre, especially one which speaks the truth. Granville Barker is recognised as one of the greatest playwrights of the last hundred years.

A Voyage Round My Fahter, 1984

Before creating the beloved courtroom drama Rumpole of the Bailey, writer John Mortimer found inspiration in his own life for this portrait of a difficult but enduring love between father and son in mid-20th-century Britain. 
Screen legend Laurence Olivier stars as the eccentric patriarch, Clifford Mortimer – a blind barrister so stubborn and cantankerous that he refuses to acknowledge his sightlessness. Alan Bates (Gosford Park) portrays his devoted son John, who follows his father's footsteps in the law while longing to become a writer, with Jane Asher (Brideshead Revisited) as his wife Elizabeth and Elizabeth Sellars as his mother. 
Adapted for the screen by Mortimer himself and filmed largely on location at his family estate in bucolic Oxfordshire, this production garnered multiple awards, including an International Emmy for best drama. Jane was nominated for a BAFTA award for best actress in 1983.
This production was notable for including the blind actor Esmond Knight in a sighted role, as one judge Mortimer senior faces. By turns hilarious and heartbreaking, it captures the special bond between father and son, which at times seems unbearable--but ultimately unbreakable.
