Thursday, 1st August 2019 - Saturday, 3rd August 2019
A Small Family Business
Venue: The Georgian Theatre Royal
Time: 7.30pm
The second week of this popular work by Alan Ayckbourn performed by RADS.

When Jack, honest and upright, takes over as MD of the family furniture business, he expects to improve efficiency. But his managerial skills are no match for the wholesale fraud, deceit and theft which he uncovers in both the business and amongst his family. He soon has to succumb to blackmail because of his daughter, and this is only the first in a series of moral compromises he will have to make. Jack and his family unwittingly find themselves on a path from simple misdemeanours to murder.

Alan Ayckbourn’s riotous exposure of entrepreneurial greed won the London Evening Standard Drama Award for Best Play.

Tickets from cost £7.50 to £13.50 and are available from the Box Office on 01748 825252 or online.

Top antiques expert David Elstob will be hosting a free valuation day at The Station for all your antiques, fine art and collectables.

The couple are joined by a team of specialists who have previously worked at high-end institutions including Sotheby’s, Christie’s, Bonhams and Doyle in New York.

This free valuation day provides an ideal opportunity for people to find out more about a whole range of contemporary or antique objects, including silver, ceramics, glass, pictures, sculpture or other collectables.

While there is no obligation at all attached to the valuations, anyone wishing to sell an item will be given the option to have it included in the next auction at the Bedale saleroom.

GeorgeFest19 - The Dramatic Exploits of Edmund Kean
Venue: The Georgian Theatre Royal
Time: 7.30pm
This captivating one-man show celebrates one of the most unique talents that British theatre has ever produced.

Written and performed by award-winning Royal Shakespeare Company actor Ian Hughes, The Dramatic Exploits of Edmund Kean charts the rise and decline of the great 19th Century actor.

Following years of hardship as a strolling player, Kean was catapulted to stardom following his performance as Shylock at Drury Lane in 1814. Quickly becoming the most popular actor of his day, Kean electrified his audiences with his performances of Shakespeare. Yet within a few short years, Kean’s increasingly erratic behavior, fuelled by drink, ensured audiences remembered him for all the wrong reasons.

Ian spent over a decade at The Royal Shakespeare Company. He was the winner of the 1st Ian Charleson /Royal National Theatre Award for Best Actor presented to him by Sir Alec Guinness. His many TV appearances include Dr. Who, Robin Hood, Shakespeare & Hathaway, Torchwood, Alienists, Ransom, Gavin & Stacy, Mutual Friends and Stella.

Tickets cost £14 and are available from the Box Office on 01748 825252 or via the online booking service.
