Things Theatrical @ Seven

High above a jungle in Nepal, pilgrims make an ancient journey by cable car to worship at Manakamana Temple. Tonight, Wednesday 16 September, 8pm, as part of Scalarama, a nationwide celebration of cinema, Seven is showing Manakamana. A camera in the cable car, observes a series of very different passengers in real time on their journey up the mountainside with an extraordinary vista from the windows. It is also now a haunting reminder of the recent destruction of parts of Nepal after two huge earthquakes. A Pay As You Feel event.

On Thursday 17 September, 7.30pm,  is Page to Stage – An Evening of New Writing. Five sharp, thought provoking pieces by writers from across the Yorkshire region are performed script in hand, giving writers the opportunity to see their work start to come to life. The performances are followed by a discussion between audience, writers, actor and directors enabling the writer to go away and develop their work further. £5.

On Friday 18 December, 7.30pm, Poppyseed Productions presents Mrs Klein. Nicholas Wright’s engaging drama centres on the real-life figure of Melanie Klein, one of the pioneers of child psychology in this country. The action of the play takes place in Klein’s home in London in 1934 over the course of one evening and the following day, shortly after Klein’s son has been reported killed in a climbing accident. £8/£6 conc 

Seven Jazz is now back in its stride with Sunday Jazz Unplugged on Sunday 20 September, 1.30 – 4pm. The Jazz Duos Jiannis Pavlidis and saxophonist Matt Anderson share a passion for the music of the Great American Songbook performing songs by composers such as Cole Porter, Jerome Kern and George Gershwin and other jazz standards. £7/£5 conc. Kids under 16 free.

If you prefer something with a little more participation, also on Sunday 20 September, 7.15-10.15pm, Mrs Porter’s Tea-Time Ceilidh. Mrs Porter's Ensemble plays lively English-style traditional dance music for old and new country dances. The event also features Music Hall songs and verses by band members. £5 on the door. Meanwhile at 8pm in the bar is the ever-popular Sunday Quiz, this week devised and presented by supremo Quizmaster, Rog Hunter. Free with raffle and prizes.

On Monday 21 September, 8pm, the Screen Seven movie is Boyhood from Director, Richard Linklater, of Before Sunrise fame. Filmed over 12 years with the same cast, Boyhood is a groundbreaking story of growing up as seen through the eyes of a child named Mason, who literally grows up on screen before our eyes. Starring Ethan Hawke and Patricia Arquette as Mason's parents and newcomer Lorelei Linklater as his sister, Boyhood is a sprawling investigation of the human condition. Fabulous film. £6 / £5 conc.

Bite My Thumb Theatre Co presents Normal on Friday 25 & Saturday 26 September, 7.30pm. Anthony Neilson’s Normal is a gripping look at the last days of the Düsseldorf Ripper, Peter Kurten, who is on trial for multiple macabre murders. In Neilson’s semi-fictional account, naïve, young lawyer Justus Wehner intends to plead insanity but as the play unfolds a more complex reading of the Ripper emerges.  £10 /£8 conc.
