Directed by Hedda Bird

Passionate and heartless, fire and ice, bully and victim, craving a chance to be herself, but not knowing who she could be… Hedda Gabler is one of the great heroines of the theatre. She is both eaten up with envy and wild with unfulfilled desire. But this is 1891, and a woman has little control over her life, and is always at the mercy of powerful, manipulative men. As her desperate search for love, beauty and the purpose of life veers out of control, Hedda is faced with a terrible choice.

Widely regarded as one of the great plays of World Theatre, so thrilling is it for audiences and actors alike that there have been four major productions in the West End in the last ten years alone. As it is twenty years since Wokingham Theatre last saw Hedda Gabler, it is high time for our own revival.

Talking Heads
8 November - 11 November
Book Now

At once darkly comic, tragically poignant and wonderfully uplifting, Alan Bennett’s Talking Heads is widely regarded as a modern classic. Since first airing in 1988 these bittersweet and highly intimate monologues demonstrate Bennett’s powers of comic observation and his insights into loneliness.

These are extraordinary tales of ordinary lives; of sadness and loss and although the people do not mean to tell a funny story there is much comedy too, as there is with all real life. The pieces are

Her Big Chance

Bed Amongst The Lentils, and

Lady Of Letters

We are pleased to present three of Bennett’s wonderful characters as they slowly disclose the vulnerable positions in which they find themselves – largely through their own fault – unwittingly revealing the skeletons in their closets.

It’s A Wonderful Life: A Live Radio Play
6 December - 16 December
Book Now

The American Christmas classic - but in a 1940s radio studio. A few actors bring dozens of characters to life in the story of the idealistic George Bailey, his plans to see the world and the obstacles that get in his way. True to the original much-loved film, but fresh and inventive using props, live music and sound effects to conjure up this seasonal love story.
