The Alexandra Players get in the picture with their latest production

Enjoy a night at the theatre without having to leave the SE7 postcode. The Alexandra Players, Charlton’s amateur theatre group, have been in touch…

Adapted from Christopher Isherwood’s novel Goodbye to Berlin, which is part of The Berlin Stories, I AM A CAMERA looks at Chris – a struggling young writer whose latest novel, concerns the events that occur around him in 1930’s Berlin. Sally Bowles, a singer/actress, who works in a Berlin nightclub, befriends Chris and, despite her transient, bohemian existence, her platonic relationship with him remains steady. Confronting frank subjects such as pregnancy and unwanted racism, it is a tellingly real piece of history and life. The play itself went on to inspire the musical show and film Cabaret which famously starred Liza Minelli.

With our recent last few productions selling out to capacity audiences, we guarantee you won’t want to miss this.

The show – at the Alexandra Hall, Bramshot Avenue – runs from Wednesday 29 May to Saturday 1 June, at 8pm. Tickets are £9 (£8 concs) and are available through the Players’ online box office or by calling 07867 627987.
