7 Star Arts’ Susan Porrett in ‘The Slaves of Solitude’ at Hampstead Theatre

Our wonderful friend and actress Susan Porrett, creator of our acclaimed multi-genre productions Classic Gershwin, Divine Fire, Sweet Harmony and Chekhov’s Grand Piano, will be appearing at Hampstead Theatre in ‘The Slaves of Solitude’, a play by Nicholas Wright adapted from a novel by Patrick Hamilton, which weaves a fascinating blend of dark hilarity and melancholy in a story about an improbable heroine in wartime Britain. Directed by Jonathan Kent, the play runs from October 20th to November 25th 2017. Details here

This winter Susan appears in two 7 Star Arts concerts – ‘Russian Winter Concert’ with Alena Lugovkina (flute) and Anne Denholm (harp) at Dorich House, Kingston on 7th December and our much-loved ‘Classic Gershwin’ with Viv McLean (piano) in the Jazz Room at the Bulls Head on 21st December.

Please visit our Events page for full details and tickets for these concerts and other 7 Star Arts productions.

 

Events

Divine Fire at The OSO

The story of Fryderyk Chopin and George Sand in music and words with

Viv McLean – piano

Susan Porrett – narrator

 

Divine Fire traces the passionate relationship of Fryderyk Chopin and the authoress George Sand from their first meeting in Paris in 1836 until their parting in 1849.

The story unfolds through a compelling, dramatic narration of events by the RSC, National Theatre and TV actress Susan Porrett. Mood-evoking piano pieces are interspersed with the narration as the great Chopin interpreter Viv McLean plays fiery scherzos, heart-rending ballades and stirring Polonaises.

“An absorbing, moving and beautifully presented evening of words and music.”

Frances Wilson (The Cross-Eyed Pianist)
