Download Free Balls in a Sandwich PDF by Peter Kaye Full Book and published by Troubador Publishing Ltd. This book was released on 2017-09-26 with total page 320 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: A ‘cathartic’ autobiography for anyone who has been through the pain associated with caring for a loved one suffering from motor neurone disease and dementia. Over 850,000 people suffer from dementia in the UK today. A brutally honest story of love, pain and loss. “I want your balls in a sandwich” were the last intelligible words that Peter Kaye’s wife Bet said to him. Sadly they were delivered with, seemingly, the same degree of venom and hatred that had come to epitomise their last two years together, and sum up the vindictiveness that is so often a result of dementia. This book is about those two years, but is also the fifty year love story that preceded those final years of losing the person you love most. The author explains what it is like being a carer, and of what happens to someone after that role, which has dominated your life for so long, has come to an end. Peter Kaye’s autobiography of caring for his wife is a story full of the pain that comes with this horrific disease, but it is also a story of love, and humour and the positives in life that he has found from this time.

Download Free Adaptation in Contemporary Theatre PDF by Frances Babbage Full Book and published by Bloomsbury Publishing. This book was released on 2017-11-16 with total page 280 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Why are so many theatre productions adaptations of one kind or another? Why do contemporary practitioners turn so frequently to non-dramatic texts for inspiration? This study explores the fascination of novels, short stories, children's books and autobiographies for theatre makers and examines what 'becomes' of literary texts when these are filtered into contemporary practice that includes physical theatre, multimedia performance, puppetry, immersive and site-specific performance and live art. In Adaptation in Contemporary Theatre, Frances Babbage offers a series of fresh critical perspectives on the theory of adaptation in theatre-making, focusing on meditations of prose literature within contemporary performance. Individual chapters explore the significance and impact of books as physical objects within productions; the relationship between the dramatic adaptation and literary edition; storytelling on the page and in performance; literary space and theatrical space; and prose fiction reframed as 'found text' in contemporary theatre and live art. Case studies are drawn from internationally acclaimed companies including Complicite, Elevator Repair Service, Kneehigh, Forced Entertainment, Gob Squad, Teatro Kismet and Stan's Cafe. Adaptation in Contemporary Theatre is a compelling and provocative resource for anyone interested in the potential and the challenges of using prose literature as material for new theatrical performance.

Book excerpt: In Brixton, Nora and Dora Chance – twin chorus girls born and bred south of the river – are celebrating their 75th birthday.

And if, in truth, Melchior is their real father after all... Wise Children is adapted for the stage from Angela Carter's last novel about a theatrical family living in South London. It centres around twin chorus girls, Nora and Dora Chance, whose lives are brimming with mystery, illegitimacy and scandal.

A big, bawdy tangle of theatrical joy and heartbreak, Wise Children is a celebration of show business, family, forgiveness and hope. Expect show girls and Shakespeare, sex and scandal, music, mischief and mistaken identity – and butterflies by the thousand.
