Directed by Rachel Pearson
The Ladykillers is a classic black comedy; a sweet little old lady, alone in her house, is pitted against a gang of criminal misfits who will stop at nothing. Posing as amateur musicians, Professor Marcus and his gang rent rooms in the lopsided house of sweet but strict Mrs Wilberforce. The villains plot to involve her, unwittingly, in Marcus' brilliantly conceived heist job. The police are left stumped but Mrs Wilberforce becomes wise to their ruse and Marcus concludes that there is only one way to keep the old lady quiet. With only her parrot, General Gordon, to help her, Mrs Wilberforce is alone with five desperate men. But who will be forced to face the music?

Brontë
13 June - 22 June
Book Now

Constrained by their background and their sex, three girls grow up in an isolated parsonage on the Yorkshire moors with an overbearing father and a brother unable to cope with the weight of his family’s expectations.

Against this backdrop, the Brontë sisters write novels and create powerful and passionate characters that have ensured their place in our literary history.

Heathcliffe, Cathy Earnshaw, Arthur Huntingdon and the first Mrs Rochester come to life as the sisters’ story unfolds. Brontë is a fascinating glimpse into the life, mind and works of this extraordinary family.

All tickets £12

Boeing Boeing
4 September - 14 September
Book Now

Our new season opens with an award-winning adaptation of Marc Camoletti's hilarious farce. Set in the swinging sixties Boeing Boeing tells the exploits of Parisian bachelor Bernard and his three flight attendant fiancées: Italian Gabriella, German Gretchen and American Gloria. With their frequent layovers Bernard has managed to keep one up, one down and one pending.

That is until unexpected schedule changes bring all three to Paris, and to his apartment, at the same time. With the misdirected help of his bewildered friend, Robert, Bernard struggles to keep them from learning the truth of his lying lothario ways. It’s Carry On Cabin Crew in this laugh-out-loud comedy romp, and you won’t want to miss it.

All seats £14

Present Laughter
16 October - 26 October
Book Now
Actor Garry Essendine is at the height of his fame. He’s handsome, witty, surrounded by adoring fans, and about to take his latest theatrical hit overseas. He’s also in the middle of a raging mid-life crisis. We find him in his once-beautiful apartment, hounded from every corner: a beautiful debutante wants to bed him, an aspiring playwright wants to worship him and his own producer’s wife wants to become better acquainted…

Under the ever-rolling eyes of his long-suffering secretary and the unshockable gaze of his estranged but determined wife Garry struggles to keep all the balls in the air.

This sparkling comedy about sex, fame and the theatre itself – and a man wrestling with his own self-image – is widely regarded as Noël Coward’s most autobiographical play.

All seats £14
