Subject: FREE shows at the Lyric performed by LAMDA



Following the success of last year, LAMDA returns to the Lyric in July with two brand new productions, presented by their graduating students, which are FREE to attend.

Running from 02 – 10 July and as part of LAMDA’s annual celebration of new writing, the world premiere of Robin Soans’s new political thriller, One Turbulent Ambassador kicks off LAMDA’s residency here at the Lyric. One Turbulent Ambassador follows the career of Craig Murray on his appointment as Her Majesty’s Ambassador and Plenipotentiary to the Republic of Uzbekistan in 2001. Murray’s proximity to post 9/11 Iraq forces him into a political minefield that neither he or the Foreign Office could have envisaged, and his personal life soon threatens to become as turbulent as the political landscape around him. For ages 14+

Running alongside One Turbulent Ambassador is Molière’s The School for Wives starting on 03 July (until 10 July). Translated by Ranjit Bolt, Moliere’s battle of the sexes comedy follows Arnolphe’s bungled attempts to cultivate a faithful wife out of his young ward, Agnes. Lecherous and middle-aged, Arnolphe is convinced that, to avoid cuckoldry, a man must keep his wife ignorant of the ways of the world, and he learns that the course of true love does not always run smoothly.

Tickets for both performances are FREE so don’t miss your chance to see the future stars of stage and screen this summer. To book call 0871 22 117 29 or visit our website here. The tickets are FREE for all so please do pass this email onto friends and family.

PLEASE NOTE: Groups of 10 or more normally incur a charge for booking, but if you wish to bring a group this size contact me directly and I can discuss waiving the fee for you.

Many Thanks,
