The Milk Train Doesn't Stop Here Anymore


Tennessee Williams

Tennessee Williams' rarely performed The Milk Train Doesn't Stop Here Anymore, an extraordinary play set on an exclusive mountaintop villa off the Amalfi coast premiered in Spoleto, Italy in 1962. It has often been referred to as a play worthy of its author's justly celebrated name. Stage, TV and film star Linda Marlowe (Who appeared in Harold and Maude and the Tennessee Williams' In The Bar of a Tokyo Hotel at the Charing Cross Theatre) plays Flora Goforth, a rich, terminally ill tour-time widow refusing to accept her own mortality, sitting in isolated splendour. Between shots of morphine and pills downed with brandy, she dictates her memoirs. Joining her is a cast which includes acclaimed actress Sara Kestelman in the role of the Witch of Capri.

This is a strictly limited engagement of 32 performances.

Directed by Robert Chevara

with Joe Ferrera, Matteo Johnson, Sanee Raval and Lucie Shorthouse.

Production Design by Nicolai Hart-Hansen, Lighting Design by Adam King, Casting by Ellie Collyer-Bristow

Marie Curie
Marie Skłodowska-Curie. Physicist. Pioneer. Parent.

As she arrives from her native home in Poland to study at Sorbonne University in Paris, young Marie Skłodowska is certain she can make a name for herself and change the course of science. She discovers radium, a new chemical element, with her husband Pierre Curie, and she’s lauded with the Nobel Prize.

But she is faced with an overwhelming moral dilemma. As Marie discovers the lifesaving potential of radium to cure cancer, factory workers handling the glowing substance are succumbing to the insidious grip of radium poisoning.

As a woman with society against her, can she wrestle with both the potential and danger of her discovery – and what is she if radium’s dangers overshadow its possibilities?

A story of life and death, ‘Marie Curie’ has already captivated audiences in Korea and Japan with its sweeping score and story and is now brought to London audiences for the first time in a stirring original production directed by Sarah Meadows (Ride).
