ALL SHOWS NOW SOLD-OUT!
ARABIAN NIGHTS by David Ives
Boy meets girl while travelling. Girl and boy fall in love. Straightforward, right? But what if you don't speak the same language? Or worse yet, what if there's an unexpected barrier to your communication, like a pushy third wheel, right as you're hunting for a last-minute souvenir on your way to the airport? Ridiculousness ensues.
Featuring: Anastasia Diatlova, Salomon Marttila, and Christian Jull.
Directed by Austin Sears.
TIME FLIES by David Ives
Horace and May meet in a bar and return to May’s pad to become better acquainted. Progress is hindered by interruptions from May’s rough neighbours and the arrival of a stranger who makes them question their purpose in life and how much of it they actually have left.
Featuring: Hosanna Megumi, Austin Sears, and Christian Jull.
Directed by Christian Jull.
THE MYSTERY AT TWICKNAM VICARAGE by David Ives
Three shots ring, and one body is found on a (very nice) carpet. Scotland Yard detective Harry Dexter is sent to solve who murdered Jeremy Thumpington-Fffienes. Was it Jeremy's wife, Mona Thumpington-Fffienes? Or their host, the Reverend Roger Penworthy-Pilks? Or perhaps Roger's wife, Sarah Penworthy-Pilks? Or maybe it was the sofa...
Featuring: Saga Arola, Riikka Faucher, Todd Elliott, Salomon Marttila, and Giuliano Didio.
Directed by Pauliina Munukka.
WANDA'S VISIT by Christopher Durang
Into the life of a very ordinary married couple, Jim and Marsha, enters Jim's very extraordinary ex-girlfriend, Wanda. Over the course of two days, the couple will learn a lot about themselves, each other, and especially about Wanda.
Featuring: Hosanna Megumi, Pauliina Munukka, Antti Vainio, and Austin Sears.
Directed by Anastasia Diatlova.
WANDA'S VISIT is presented by special arrangement with SAMUEL FRENCH, INC.
This amateur production of ARABIAN NIGHTS, TIME FLIES, and THE MYSTERY AT TWICKNAM VICARAGE by David Ives is presented by arrangement with Josef Weinberger Limited.
But don't forget: 'amateur' means 'lover' in French...
Korkeavuorenkatu 17, 00130 Helsinki
Höyhentämö Pluckhouse is a hidden basement studio theatre located directly opposite Johanneksenkirkko (Johannes Church) in the design district of Helsinki. Enter through the gateway for number 17 (it will be unlocked before the show). On your immediate left through the gate is the doorway to Höyhentämö. Through the main doorway, take the right doorway and down the stair to the theatre.
Parking is limited to street parking only. Bus 24 and tram 10 stop outside the Design Museum (heading from the centre) and at Korkeavuorenkatu 11 (no.24) and Tarkk'ampujankatu 2 (no.10) heading toward the centre)
Höyhentämö Pluckhouse is, unfortunately, very wheelchair unfriendly. There are numerous steps entering and within the theatre, and a flight of stairs to reach it. Whilst someone in a manual chair can access the theatre with assistance, it is quite impossible for electric chairs to do so. We regret these restrictions, but are limited by the available facilities.
