Three Days in the Country rehearsal images

A handsome new tutor brings reckless, romantic desire to an eccentric household. Over three days one summer the young and the old will learn lessons in love: first love and forbidden love, maternal love and platonic love, ridiculous love and last love. The love left unsaid and the love which must out.

Ivan Turgenev’s passionate, moving comedy, A Month in the Country, has been a source of inspiration for films, a ballet and the plays of Chekhov. It’s presented here in a new version by Patrick Marber.

Photographs by Mark Douet.

Three Days in the Country is playing from 21 July. Find out more and book tickets.

Quality Quotes: Punk
  • “Punk is musical freedom. It’s saying, doing and playing what you want. In Webster’s terms, ‘nirvana’ means freedom from pain, suffering and the external world, and that’s pretty close to my definition of Punk Rock.” –Kurt Cobain, Nirvana
  • “To me, punk is about being an individual and going against the grain and standing up and saying 'This is who I am’.” –Joey Ramone, the Ramones
  • “To me, punk rock is the freedom to create, freedom to be successful, freedom to not be successful, freedom to be who you are. It’s freedom.” –Patti Smith
  • “Punk is not just the sound, the music. Punk is a lifestyle.”-Billie Joe Armstrong, Green Day
  • “Questioning anything and everything, to me, is punk rock.” –Henry Rollins, Black Flag
  • “'Punk’ doesn’t mean Mohawks and safety pins. It’s about not conforming.” –Patrick Stump, Fall Out Boy
  • “I don’t think punk ever really dies, because punk rock attitude can never die.” –Billy Idol, Generation X
  • “I never wanted to go back and relive the glory days; I just want to keep moving forward. That’s what I took from punk. Keep going. Don’t look back.”- Paul Simonon, The Clash
  • “When the punk thing came along and I heard my friends saying, I hate these people with the pins in their ears. I said, Thank God, something got their attention.”-Neil Young
  • “I never thought of punk rock as the absolute act of rebellion for the sake of rebellion. There’s a lot of that in there, but for me I think punk rock was always about questioning things and making decisions for yourself, which is a great message to pass on to your kids.” –Mark Hoppus, Blink 182

Supernatural Season 10 - Gag reel

Hello everyone 💕
Today marks my first day of my last semester/month of grad school. Here is a small section of wall from my dorm room where Harry has been placed beside Gandalf with rosketch’s drawing between them as well as a Starfighter poster and a Hellboy poster and a Peanuts postcard and a Sandman poster (we have quite a collection tbh.)
Drawings and posts might be slightly more sparse this month but we will see. Hopefully I will get my thesis comic up by the end of it so I can (finally) share that with everyone.
