Go Back For Murder

Go Back For Murder

What is more exciting than an Agatha Christie play based on family secrets, intrigue, suspense, romance, seduction, and murder?

Carla Crale returns to the UK from Canada carrying a disturbing secret. Her mother, Caroline Crale, died in prison serving a life sentence for poisoning her husband, Amyas Crale, Carla’s father. On receiving a letter in which Caroline pleads her innocence of the crime, Carla is determined to clear her mother’s name. With the help of a young lawyer, Justin Fogg, she assembles the people involved in the tragic drama, and together with Justin, uncovers the truth.

British Pomp confronts Finnish Circumstance

When Finns and expats meet in Helsinki, things generally proceed amicably – unless someone like Gerald is around.

There’s a certain type of obnoxious British expat. We’ve all met one in our time: they insist on correcting people who dare to say ‘elevator’ or ‘sidewalk’, and think the British Empire is still alive and kicking. Gerald, the protagonist – or should that be antagonist? – of the Finn-Brit Players’ new comedy, The Finnish Play, is one of them.

The play’s title alludes to a theatrical superstition – you should never refer to Shakespeare’s Macbeth by name, only as ‘The Scottish Play’, or else disaster will strike. But Gerald enjoys playing with fire.The Finnish Play image

Call for Open Auditions for the 2015 Spring Production

DATE: 1 February, 2015
TIME: 2-5 pm
PLACE: The FinnBrit Language Centre, Fredrikinkatu 20A (MAP)

This Spring, The Finn-Brit Players will be staging Neil LaBute's Fat Pig, directed by Stina Halmetoja. There will be a run of performances between 17 and 26 April on the Puoli-Q stage at Q-teatteri. The rehearsals (mostly on weekends) will run from early February until the theatre run starts.

We are looking for 4 actors, 2 males and 2 females, between the ages of 25 and 40. One of the female roles is strictly for someone plus-sized.

Please email Stina (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) and sign up for auditions by Friday 30 January. If you have any questions, or if you are interested in auditioning or otherwise being part of the production but cannot attend the auditions on 1 February, please contact Stina asap.

Tom is a nice guy with a bad dating track record who randomly meets Helen, a plus-size girl with a big personality and an even bigger heart. What will Tom's workmates Carter, the office clown and a-hole, and Jeannie from accounting, whom Tom used to date, make of Helen?

A dark comedy about relationships and dating, Fat Pig is a brutally funny depiction of human insecurities in action. It also has a surprisingly emotional core, which forces audiences to examine their own attitudes.

"Neil LaBute's sharply drawn play not only critiques our slavish adherence to Hollywood ideals of beauty but also questions our own ability to change what we dislike about ourselves."
