Trio Sōra Ilminster Arts Centre Trio Sōra ( Pauline Chenais piano, Magdalēna Geka violin, Angèle Legasa cello ) founded in 2015 at the Paris Conservatoire by three talented young women - Pauline Chenais, Magdalena Geka and Angele Legasa - Trio Sōra has literally soared to fame despite having only played together for three years. This is due in no small measure to their rigorous schedule of rehearsals and competitions, which has helped them reach their current level of excellence. Awards have been reaped along the way, including the Parkhouse Award in April 2017, as well as a number of French and International awards. They were also appointed HSBC Lauréates of the Festival d’Aix Academy 2017 and Lauréate of the Special Prize of the Verbier Festival Academy 2018. But what is really impressive is the strength and sensitivity they use to interpret chamber music. Playing with both warmth and energy, Trio Sōra is now considered an ensemble with a distinct artistic identity.

Three One Act Plays Warehouse Theatre, Ilminster We are thrilled to have three new directors for this venture and do hope that you will support them by coming on Monday. The three plays are as follows: Andrew Carson has chosen to direct: Thank You for Protesting by Paul Adam Levy. A high-tempo comedy on the subject of a citizen’s right to protest, full of satire and quick-fire dialogue. When a local government worker is tasked with replacing “a thing” on a street with another “thing”, a nearby resident takes it upon herself to put a stop to it in a civilised, law-abiding and dignified manner. When a younger, more eager protester steps in with a more direct approach, all three are caught up in a farce of protesting rights and housing policy when the worker’s boss shows up and starts flexing her administrative might. Characters: Resident - a middle aged woman, ‘Daily Mail’ reader, likes the idea of the ‘big society’, but isn’t quite sure what it means, avid member of the neighbourhood watch Worker - a young man, not too interested in his work, but respectful towards authority Protester – a young woman, new-age hippy type, doesn’t respect the establishment or anyone who disagrees with her ideals Boss – a middle aged woman, a cut-throat clipboard-wielder with a smile Michael Wills has chosen to direct: The Death of Sherlock Holmes by Richard James Holmes and Watson must act fast to prevent the theft of a famous diamond and safeguard the economy of the Austrian Empire. But does Holmes mean to get shot by Watson? Will the Great Detective survive? There are two characters: Holmes and Watson Our third offering is to be directed by Richard Tingley: A Resounding Tinkle by N F Simpson It would be wrong to say nothing surprises the Paradocks, Bro and Middie. It's just that they take in their stride the things that would surprise us. The elephant in their garden, for instance, has actually been ordered, but this year the shop has made a mistake and sent the wrong size. The arrival of Uncle Ted does cause Middie to raise her eyebrows momentarily, for he has become bored with being a he and is now an elegantly dressed young woman. Their social habits are different from ours and their talk satirizes the life of suburbia, and in the intervals, turns a mildly disconcerting eye on all of us. Characters: One male and two female 20/02/2019 TBA TBA

When a local government worker is tasked with replacing “a thing” on a street with another “thing”, a nearby resident takes it upon herself to put a stop to it in a civilised, law-abiding and dignified manner. When a younger, more eager protester steps in with a more direct approach, all three are caught up in a farce of protesting rights and housing policy when the worker’s boss shows up and starts flexing her administrative might. Characters: Resident - a middle aged woman, ‘Daily Mail’ reader, likes the idea of the ‘big society’, but isn’t quite sure what it means, avid member of the neighbourhood watch Worker - a young man, not too interested in his work, but respectful towards authority Protester – a young woman, new-age hippy type, doesn’t respect the establishment or anyone who disagrees with her ideals Boss – a middle aged woman, a cut-throat clipboard-wielder with a smile Michael Wills has chosen to direct: The Death of Sherlock Holmes by Richard James Holmes and Watson must act fast to prevent the theft of a famous diamond and safeguard the economy of the Austrian Empire. But does Holmes mean to get shot by Watson? Will the Great Detective survive? There are two characters: Holmes and Watson Our third offering is to be directed by Richard Tingley: A Resounding Tinkle by N F Simpson It would be wrong to say nothing surprises the Paradocks, Bro and Middie. It's just that they take in their stride the things that would surprise us. The elephant in their garden, for instance, has actually been ordered, but this year the shop has made a mistake and sent the wrong size. The arrival of Uncle Ted does cause Middie to raise her eyebrows momentarily, for he has become bored with being a he and is now an elegantly dressed young woman. Their social habits are different from ours and their talk satirizes the life of suburbia, and in the intervals, turns a mildly disconcerting eye on all of us. Characters: One male and two female 22/02/2019 TBA TBA
