Staffordshire Moorlands based REC (Rural, Educational, Community) Theatre Company are coming to the Foxlowe Arts Centre at the end of September with two of their multi award winning shows.

Zugzwang, by Duncan Battman, is an obscure word in the english dictionary, referring to a situation in chess that applies to Alec,played by Martin Beard, as he walks out of his wife’s funeral. His son Trevor (Glen Naden) comes, only to find Alec playing a game of postal
chess. The conversation that ensues reveals the parallels between Alec’s life and his chess game. Martin Beard won the award for Best Actor at Hale festival when this show was first produced 25 years ago and subsequently best production at Buxton Festival Fringe.

The second show is a double award winner for writer and performer Martin Beard as the now  middle aged Don Juan who reflects upon his life, loves and adventures as an uninhibited libertine up to the point of his final comeuppance for all his misdeeds. You will either love him or hate him,or maybe a bit of both.

The REC Theatre Company and its drama school have been a leading influence and driving theatrical force behind Buxton Festival Fringe for the past seventeen years. They were the first company to introduce managed venues to that fringe and former REC Drama School students now
continue that tradition as the company concentrates on developing small scale touring of rural venues in Staffordshire and

This will be the REC’s debut a Foxlowe Arts Centre for two nights only as a double bill on Saturday 29th and Sunday 30th September Zugzwang 7.30 pm (15 min interval) Don Juan at 8.15 pm

(The shows end at 9.00 pm followed by an after show discussion)

Tickets are £8.00 and Concessions £7.00
