The Asylum Players The Blue Room, Lincoln
THE ASYLUM PLAYERS 2019 SEASON

THE ASYLUM PLAYERS AT THE BLUE ROOM

Who are we?

The Asylum Players are a brand new “in-house,” semi-professional theatre company. Working exclusively with The Blue Room in Lincoln, the company is formed of local actors of all ages and backgrounds, who share a love of theatre and performance.

What do we do?

We tell stories. Each year The Asylum Players will put on a season of three shows, drawing from the best theatrical talent Lincoln and Nottingham has to offer. Our shows will be challenging, ambitious and accessible.

Why do we do it?

To entertain you and to enjoy ourselves. Theatre should never bore, it should simply entertain. If you enjoy the shows, then we know we’ve done a good job. If everyone involved with the production enjoys themselves then we give you a better show. It ain’t rocket science.

Can I get involved?

Absolutely. The Asylum Players are a family. We don’t do egos and we don’t do politics. Everyone who joins our “production family;” actors, directors, musicians, stage-hands, front-of-house, does so to work hard and enjoy their time with us. If you think you’d like to get involved give us a shout on enquiries@asylumplayers.co.uk or keep an eye out for the latest audition news.

One Man Two Guvnors

One Man Two Guvnors

Thursday 28th March - Saturday 30th March 7:30pm
Saturday 30th March 2:00pm

The Asylum Players presents: One Man Two Guvnors by Richard Bean.

The farce to end all farces. Fired from his skiffle band, Francis Henshall becomes minder to Roscoe Crabbe, a small time East End hood, now in Brighton to collect £6,000 from the dad of his fiancée. But Roscoe is really his sister Rachel posing as her own dead brother, who has been killed by her boyfriend Stanley Stubbers.

Holed up at The Cricketers Arms, the permanently ravenous Francis spots the chance of an extra meal ticket and takes a second job with one Stanley Stubbers, who is hiding from the police and waiting to be reunited with Rachel. To prevent discovery, Francis must keep his two guvnors apart. Simple.

14+ Contains some strong language. Part of The Asylum Players 2019 Season ticket.

The Importance of Being Earnest

Thursday 18th July - Saturday 20th July 7:30pm
Saturday 20th July 2:00pm

The Asylum Players presents: The Importance of Being Earnest by Oscar Wilde.

A Trivial Comedy for Serious People.

Unfortunately neither of them are named Earnest and one of them was found in a handbag.

The Crucible

The Crucible

Thursday 14th November - Saturday 16th November 7:30pm
Saturday 16th November 2:00pm

The Asylum Players presents: The Crucible by Arthur Miller.

Witch Hunts and Fake News, ring any bells? Arthur Miller’s classic story of the power of mob rule and false belief. Set in Salem 1692, we watch the tragedy of the Witch Hunts that devastated the community and took the lives of many innocent people. Written by Miller, in response to the insanity of 1950s McCarthyism, this is a story that becomes alarmingly more relevant with every passing day and every badly spelt Tweet.
