Charlie May - Snowman Never Sleeps

Here it is! The trailer to Michael Lasoff’s upcoming film ”Snowman Never Sleeps”, in which I play private investigator Nick Snowman, is now available for viewing.

Watch it on Vimeo

“Nick Snowman, ex-star-detective, is lured back to work by an enigmatic young beauty, Vera Kandinsky. Set against a neo-noir Amsterdam, Nick’s search for Vera’s lost husband catapults him into a jungle of art forgery, the Russian Mafia and murder. A paranormal gift to find clues via his dreams confounds Nick further as dead girlfriend, Stephanie, invades his dreams with questions about guilt, trust, courage, love and redemption. This first feature length film by Lasoff will be premiered in the Amsterdam Badhuistheater late 2013. Exact dates coming soon.”

I AM I by Mike Czuba

Tuesday 13 november 8pm – Staged reading I am I by Mike Czuba (door opens 7:30pm)
There are two sides to every story, and two sides to every personality. Is it true that the bad guy always gets the girl, or can the nice guy sometimes win too? I Am I is an absurd, existential look at what it means to be a modern man.

27 Nov Fishing by Mike Weller @ Waterstones Amsterdam

Orange Tea Theatre regularly puts on staged readings at Waterstones Amsterdam. I will be starring as “Bill” in this one.

see below for details

Staged reading. Doors open at 7:30pm, show starts promptly at 8:00pm @ Waterstones (Entry €5)

Director: Agnesz Hoekstra

In the middle of Fishing a character explains the term “Indian fog”–the Indians believed that when the gods wanted to atone for some mistake they had made, they wrapped creation in a dense fog while they performed their secret repairs. Fishing is a coming of age play where characters are living in their own redemptive fog looking for their way to deal with life’s reality.

Lady Windermere’s Fan Returns

“I can resist everything, except temptation” – Lord Darlington, Lady Windermere’s Fan.

I’m excited to announce that we’re doing a second run of Lady Windermere’s Fan shows in October in the Universiteitstheater in Amsterdam. Ever since its first performance in 1892, Lady Windermere’s Fan has been one of the most popular of English comedies. Yet, though it is an extremely witty play, it also contains many moments of highly dramatic tension.

October 18th, 19th & 20th  @ 20.00 University Theatre, Amsterdam. Euro 5,-

Lady Windermere, a paragon of virtue, is suddenly confronted by rumours of her husband’s infidelity. She breaks into his desk and to find his bank book and discovers that he has been giving large amounts of money to a Mrs Erlynne – an older woman whose sudden appearance in Society suggest scandal.

What does this woman mean to Lord Windermere? Will Lady Windermere fight back?

Intrique follows fast on intrique, encompassing meetings with various eccentric members of English aristocratic Society, all eager to be heard in their world, until we come ultimately to Wilde’s classical “class-comedy” ending: the dramatic irony of the audience knowing the whole truth, and each of  the characters knowing only various parts.

The Windmill Theatre Company is the UvA English Dept.’s theatre group. In November 2011 and March 2012 they performed, to great acclaim, G.B.Shaw’s Candida. This production of Lady Windermere’s Fan was first performed in June this year and includes students from UvA’s Theatre studies Dept. and International students currently studying at UvA & VU.
