The Pheasantry (Chelsea) 1st August 2017

One of our most popular artists, Stefan Bednarczyk, returns with his show ‘An Evening Of Flanders And Swann’, a tribute to Michael Flanders and Donald Swann, the hilarious and hugely talented writers and performers popular in the 50s and 60s. The show was originally commissioned in 1995 by the widows of Flanders and Swann, premiering in the West End and going on to be performed all over the world. Claudia Flanders regarded Bednarczyk as the finest interpreter of her late husband’s work. Between 1956 and 1967, Flanders and Swann toured Britain and abroad, performing songs and comic monologues in their long-running two-man revues ‘At the Drop of a Hat’ and ‘At the Drop of Another Hat’.

‘Beyond A Joke’

The Pheasantry (Chelsea)

Following his acclaimed solo shows of ‘Noel Coward’ and ‘Flanders & Swann’, Stefan returns to The Pheasantry to perform his latest solo show, ‘Beyond A Joke’. He now focuses on the rest of his ‘education’, and on the sometimes unlikely bedfellows who nestled alongside ‘Coward’ and ‘F & S’ in the all-embracing ‘Humour’ section of his local record shop in the 1970’s. Jake Thackeray, Allan Sherman, Tom Lehrer are among the songwriters whose work he revives, showing how – along with the jokes and the brilliance of the writing – their parodies and satire remain as incisive, hilarious and sometimes as painfully relevant today.

“Suavely entertaining..it is difficult to imagine anyone else inhabiting his piano stool…superbly polished.”




The Dover Road

Tue, 6th September – Sat, 1st October






in association
Jermyn Street Theatre


The Dover Road
by A.A Milne

Directed by Nichola McAuliffe
Set Design by PJ McEvoy
Lighting Design by James Smith

In the year that sees both the 60th anniversary of Milne’s death, and the 90th anniversary of the publication ofWinnie-the-Pooh, Close Quarter Productions, in association with Jermyn Street Theatre, is proud to present a long overdue revival of arguably the best of Milne’s plays.

Before the arrival of Winnie-the-Pooh in 1926, Milne was a very well-established author of 18 plays.
The Dover Road was first performed in 1921 in New York, then opening at the Theatre Royal, Haymarket, in London the following year.  Later, in the 1930s the play became a major film under the title Where Sinners Meet, starring Diana Wynyard and Clive Brook.

It’s a light-hearted comedy set in a mysterious house just off the Dover Road, inhabited by the enigmatic Mr Latimer. Two runaway couples find themselves enjoying the hospitality of a complete stranger, who seems to have an underlying purpose of his own…

Cast includes: Patrick Ryecart, Stefan Bednarczyk, Tom Durant-Pritchard, Georgia Maguire, Katrina Gibson, James Sheldon and Gareth McLeod.

Casting Director: Georgia Fleury Reynolds
