Theatre: Scampolo (Leytonstone Festival favourite) in Islington run
From April 19th to May 1st, Islington’s Rosemary Branch pub theatre will play host to Poetic Justice’s new English language production of Scàmpolo, a 1916 romantic comedy by renowned early 20th c Italian playwright and director Dario Niccodemi, first trialled at the 2015 Leytonstone Festival. The translation and performance is a dream come true for Wanstead-based actor and politician Ashley Gunstock, who had picked up an old copy of the play on his honeymoon in Italy, and had for many years wanted to create a translation of it. A special team of three at Ashley Gunstock's Theatre company Poetic Justice have combined their skills to create this groundbreaking translation. Poetic Justice now celebrate the play’s centenary with this, the first ever full-length English stage production of Scàmpolo . Scàmpolo is a classic early 20th century tale of a girl on the threshold of womanhood, living on the harsh streets of Rome. Her introduction into the life and social circle of an impoverished engineer – with dreams of having his Libyan railway project accepted by the Italian government – raises quite a few eyebrows and questions regarding the hypocrisy of the bourgeoisie. Poetic Justice is delighted to be staging the centenary and first ever English production of this quirky, poignant and beautifully written Italian romantic comedy, the first of Niccodemi’s works to be translated by Marzia Marani, Diana Korchien & Ashley Gunstock.
