The Personal History of David Copperfield
This wonderful comedy (119 minutes, Certificate PG, trailer) written and directed by Armando Iannucci, is the first theatrical film production of Dickens’ novel in 50 years.
‘The Personal History of David Copperfield puts a fresh, funny, and utterly charming spin on Dickens' classic, proving some stories truly are timeless.’
‘It really is an entertaining film, managing to both respect and reinvent the novel from which it takes its lead.’
Highbury Players were due to present Deep Cut by Philip Ralph when theatres had to close their doors for the first lockdown.
We have been working on an alternative presentation of the production We have made an audio recording of the play which will be accompanied by images from the final dress rehearsal and would like to invite you to join us, listen to the story and see what the play would have looked like.
Loving Vincent (2017)
‘...dazzling visual achievement...’
First conceived as a seven-minute short film in 2008, Loving Vincent was realised by Dorota Kobiela, a painter herself, after studying the techniques and the artist's story through his letters.
Winner of Best Animated Feature Film Award at the 30th European Film Awards in Berlin Loving Vincent was nominated for Best Animated Feature at the 90th Academy Awards.
The Players are keeping fit with on-line rehearsals and recordings.
We have a series of well rehearsed readings practiced in a Covid Safe environment which we will perform on stage or Youtube over the coming months so watch the Highbury Flyer for ticket booking arragements
'Lockdown in Little Grimley', written by David Tristram is currently in production - under strict Government guidelines of course - and will be unleashed later this year.
We hope this will be for a 5 night run. David is one of the country's most prolific comedy playwrights and a good friend of Highbury so we're confident our (physically distanced) audiences will have a great night out during these troubled times.
We’re planning to reopen for our regular play season when regulations are relaxed including ‘Nell Gwynn’ by Jessica Swale , a rumbustious saucy romp that is just what is needed after these dire times.
