Putney Arts Theatre February Edition

Published: 05/02/2020 By Allan Fuller

What you may ask is the connection between the theatre and Nelsons Colum, and no its not this month’s quiz question. The answer is that it occupies what was originally a Union Chapel that was  built in 1860 by Sir Samuel Morton Peto, whose other building works included the Reform Club and Nelson’s Column. When the building fell into disuse after the congregation joined the United Reform Church it was empty for a while.
The theatre was opened in July 1968 and has grown consistently since. Now it has two auditoriums with a wide variety of productions ensuring there is something for everyone.

What's on this month at the local and prestigious Putney Arts Theatre

“For the good deed you have done me, I must do all the ill man can invent.”

Putney Theatre Company presents The Duchess of Malfi by John Webster.
Performance dates: Tuesday 11 February to Saturday 15 February 2020, 7.45pm (main stage)
Power corrupts its holders as well as those who feel its absence. John Webster’s The Duchess of Malfi explores the extremities of sanity, rage and lust while always returning to jealousy. The Duchess has power, but on what terms – and how fragile is it?
Using live camera projections, movement and original music, this production will explore the façades of power, as well as how we understand gender in our public and private spheres.
