THE ONLY LONDON DATES OF ITS CURRENT TOUR
FOR FOUR PERFORMANCES ONLY!

“It was already one in the morning, the rain pattered dismally against the panes and my candle was nearly burnt out, when, by the glimmer of the half extinguished light, I saw the dull yellow eye of the creature open…..”

1816, the year without a summer, a volcanic ash cloud fills the European skies and during a lost weekend on the dark shores of Lake Geneva stories of fear and horror are told by candlelight.

One of the stories born that dark weekend was ‘Frankenstein’.

Following Proteus’ re-imagining of Bram Stoker’s ‘Dracula’ for the stage, comes their version of Mary Shelley’s classic gothic tale of the ultimate act of creation spiralling out of control. This version blends the novel with the story of the book’s creation during the infamous weekend shared by Mary Shelley, Percy Shelley and Lord Byron. Created in Proteus’ unique style, fusing physical performance, circus, film and music, this is a Frankenstein that holds the mirror up to our modern anxieties concerning human genetics, cloning and the revenge of nature.

Created by the team that produced the critically acclaimed national tours of ‘Dracula’, ‘Houdini’ and ‘The Elephant Man’ which transferred to The Brits Off Broadway Festival in New York.

Secret Garden

A new adaptation of the classic novel by Frances Hodgson Burnett by Dorset based physical theatre company Angel Exit Theatre. The Secret Garden has been co-produced by Dorchester Arts and Bridport Arts Centre and commisioned by Lighthouse Poole's Centre for the Arts and Activate.

Spoilt orphan, Mary Lennox, is plucked from the bright vibrancy of India and transplanted to a vast old house brimming with secrets on the grey Yorkshire moors. As the wind wuthers around the mysterious manor, Mary battles with loneliness and encounters locked doors, a curious robin, a gruff old gardener, and strange cries echoing through the house. A hidden key unlocks the secret garden, but what will this unlock in Mary? And will she be able to help her grieving uncle and whoever is wailing down the corridor?

Unearthing the dark heart of this classic tale, Angel Exit celebrate the centenary of Frances Hodgson Burnett's The Secret Garden with a brand new production presented in their own rich visual style, blending ensemble storytelling with striking physicality, beautiful puppets, live singing and an original soundtrack.

In the final moments before his execution a man
finds himself caught in a whirlwind with the painful and poignant memories of his life and the fear of what comes next.

This new adaptation of Victor Hugo's novel "The Last Day of a Condemned Man" revitalizes the classic text with theatricality using story-telling and physical theatre and brings our attention to one of the most essential human questions: Can the death penalty ever be justified?

A Respectable Wedding and Bud

Is Marriage all it’s cracked up to be?

The Tell Theatre Company present
A Respectable Wedding
by Bertolt Brecht (translated by Jean Benedetti)
&
Bud
by Nick Darke

Directed by Penny Cliff

With divorce rates on the up, it seems that the fairy tale version of marriage couldn’t be further from reality. “A Respectable Wedding” and “Bud” subject marriage to a wicked examination, dripping with humour, of the power, cruelty and rage that reside in its darker corners.

A sharp look at one couple’s efforts to create their special day, Brecht’s “A Respectable Wedding” crashes into excruciatingly delicious calamity. With a cast of nine, the play was last produced at the Young Vic in April 2007.

“Bud” by the late Cornish playwright (and filmmaker, lobsterman and wrecker) Nick Darke, is a ferociously atmospheric one-man play in which Bud, a fifty-year-old farmer, maps how "the acid drops scorchin holes in the starched napkin of our marriage" leads to a shocking disaster. Originally commissioned by the RSC it was last performed in London at the Almeida in November 1985.

THE TELL relocates the plays to Thatcher’s 1980s, a period of change and reaction, class-division and aspiration. With a big cast and live music, this production lets these provocative comedies burn as bright as ever.

Come and be entertained this February with 2 classic plays for the price of 1!

April 12 & 13

TNT Theatre Britain presents:
OLIVER TWIST
Adapted from Charles Dickens’ novel by Paul Stebbings & Phil Smith
Original score by Thomas Johnson

OLIVER TWIST has been described as the first modern novel. It is one of the few novels whose characters have entered into modern myth – Fagin, Bill, Nancy and the Artful Dodger can claim to be some of the best known literary creations outside of Shakespeare. The enormous energy of these characters and the full-bloodied portrait of the first modern urban nightmare, London, make the story not only exciting and dramatic, but also truly contemporary. The themes and social issues raised by Dickens are as relevant today as they were when the novel was published over one hundred and sixty years ago. The action is developed through integrated song, using complex and exciting five part harmony.

TNT’S production of OLIVER TWIST is being revived for the fifth time; it has been seen from Tokyo to Berlin and from Scotland to China. It has only ever received good reviews and thrilled a wide range of audiences.

TNT represent one of the most interesting developments in British theatre. The Guardian

Blackeyed Theatre presents The World Premiere of

The Beekeeper
By Michael Ashton

Directed by Adrian McDougall
Designed by Victoria Spearing

Winner of PULSE, Blackeyed Theatre’s new writing initiative.

December 1944. Monowicze, one of the labour camps at Auschwitz. Amidst the desperation and inhumanity of the Holocaust, an incredible power struggle develops between Kommandant Richard Baer and one of his prisoners, Manachem Stressler, a German Jew who survives by harvesting honey from the camp’s bee hives for his captors. With Russian tanks advancing to liberate the camp, Baer’s growing despair pushes both men to their limits as they seek redemption and a return to their humanity. Based on real life events, The Beekeeper is the incredible story of two men, the nature of power and the strength of the human spirit.

An outstanding piece of theatre..Guiralarocca's outstanding central performance presents a man who is frightened, submissive, anguished but passionate about his bees and their honey..It's a role as profound as any classical tragic hero and Guiralarocca is riveting with his expressive eyes and despair-laden voice.
Susan Elkin, The Stage

Two brothers live in a house in North Philly. Although adults, there is something child-like about these orphans. The eldest supports himself and his slightly retarded brother by petty thievery. One night he brings home a rich older man to get him drunk and rob him. It turns out that the man – Harold is very rich and on the lam from a hitman. Harold establishes the house as a base of operations and, in a strange, hilarious and moving way, becomes the father figure the boys have always yearned for.

The School for Scandal
by Richard Sheridan

‘…""'O Lud you are going to be moral, and forget you are amongst friends'

At the height of eighteenth century London, a web of glamorous socialites enjoy everything from a quiet game of Piquet to an outrageously fabricated character assassination.

When the wealthy Sir Oliver returns to select which of his wayward nephews is to become his heir, he is unwittingly plunged into a world of double-crossing, intrigue and downright skulduggery.
Will he discover who is worthy to inherit his fortune, or will he be deceived by cleverly constructed appearances?

Fast-paced, witty and chic, Richard Sheridan's The School for Scandal is a wonderfully comic glimpse into a world of wealth, romance, and deception – where no one is quite as they seem!

Blood Wedding
by Fredrico Lorca

Choose will. Choose fate. Choose honour. Choose disgrace. Choose life. Choose death … Choose …

Spain, 1931, a feud between families is set to be appeased by a marriage of good means. But in the heat of the Andalusian countryside, a young girl, bound by her societal duty to matrimony, perilously wrestles with her instinct, setting into motion a rampant trail of retribution, surrealism and revenge which will culminate in an irretrievably brutal climax. Will she consummate her marriage, or will she run with another?

Love, lust and betrayal abound in Federico Garcia Lorca’s surreal masterpiece Blood Wedding.

From the company that created the critically acclaimed Titus Andronicus ****, A Life in the Theatre **** and Romeo & Juliet ***** comes a sensual and violently provocative envisioning of one of Spain’s most infamous plays.

By Shaun Kitchener

Benji once read somewhere that life’s not about hiding from a storm; it’s about learning to dance in the rain. When it comes to being HIV-positive, epic phrases like that are easier said than done. But with his love life, social life and family life battered by fears of judgement and rejection, he’s finally starting to realise that it’s time to grab his anxiety by the balls and learn to get on with it.

Inspired by true stories, Positive is a warm-hearted comedy about an ordinary guy living with one of Britain’s most misunderstood diseases – in London for one night only (World AIDS Day) after a critically-acclaimed run at the Edinburgh Fringe, with all profits being donated to HIV charity Positively UK.

CHAOS a new musical
By James Millar and Peter Rutherford

Chaos is the tale of two men in different times with different lives; one afraid to leave the house, the other afraid to leave his community. A series of seemingly random and occasionally chaotic events over thirty-five years ties the threads between their lives that form the portrait of a modern family. It is, loosely, an autobiographical story of actor and writer, James Millar, and his family with music by Australian composer and conductor, Peter Rutherford.

Directed by David Page
Musical Director Peter Rutherford

ShellShock Productions Ltd present

ShellShock
by Tim Thomas

By turns exciting, tragic, poignant and funny SHELLSHOCK is a dramatic new British musical. With fourteen original songs and a powerful storyline it is an exhilarating and ultimately uplifting story.

It is 1975. Britain is fighting a secret desert war. A soldier returns traumatised by his experiences. His wife and daughter struggle to come to terms with his despair. As an escape his little girl remembers how he used to be, the perfect Dad, big and strong, hilarious and wild. It is very much about her, about growing up and seeing the world in all its complexity.

But another story intertwines with this one. It has deep echoes of World War 1 and an awful secret which a woman has lived with in the intervening years. That war started a century ago and ShellShock is one of the world-wide events which will commemorate those shattering hostilities.

The story of the musical was inspired by a conversation between the writer, Tim Thomas and his grandmother when he was just a small boy. Like all of her generation she endured that terrible time and he was transfixed by the tale of hope that she told.

Directed by Matthew Gould.
Musical Director David Keefe.

The Regina Monologues

By Rebecca Russell and Jenny Wafer

“Divorced, beheaded, died, divorced, beheaded, survived…”

Admired, vilified, de-humanised.

Three Catherines, two Annes and a Jane. Six women with one thing in common – marriage to a man called Henry – have passed into historical legend. Of course, it couldn’t happen these days...

Six modern women have also married one man. Their lives are both separate and intertwined as they tell their stories from a room in which they have all once lived. Their experiences – miscarriage, love affairs, betrayal, and a shared loathing of all things ginger – are portrayed with humour, pathos and a great deal of wine.

The plight of those sixteenth century women is personal, poignant and still relevant five hundred years on.

A Brand New Comedy

The final few hours before opening a show can be tense. However, when the actors for ‘Another Day in Paradise’ turn up to rehearsals late, have completely unrealistic demands and fall out with theatre’s staff, the show’s opening night starts to hang in the balance.

After having taken all the snide comments and complaints he can handle, the head technician decides he will take the production into his own hands once the curtain goes up. Together with the stage hands, he begins to make one too many ‘mistakes’. The show must go on, but will the cast be able to pull the plot back together?

But as the weekend plays out and the celebration becomes as messed up as the people themselves, the facade of sugar and spice falls away to reveal chaos, envy, and conspiracy.

Fast paced, bold, and laced with humour, Crab Bucket explores a modern perspective of the nature of feminism as seen through the eyes of the women experiencing it directly.

Inspired by the theory of Crab Mentality, Crab Bucket explores the issues surrounding young women in society today and how their apathy and sexuality can have a profound effect on the recognition of their place in the world around them.

Cymbeline

By William Shakespeare

This exciting, updated production from the team that brought you Japan Tour's The Merchant of Venice comes to Waterloo East following previews in Cambridge.

Modern Britain, home to liberal thought, social progression and a renewed sense of pride. The monarchy, having enjoyed strength and stability from recent surges in nationalistic interest, is now facing adversity from abroad and from within.

Princess Imogen, heir to the throne since her brother's disappearance, and heart-throb of many, has finally decided to marry. Having eschewed kind but misguided offers to marry her step-brother, Imogen instead opts to propose to her girlfriend, Posthumus.

King Cymbeline, himself a pioneer of the Marriage Equality Laws, is now embroiled in untimely personal conflict. The Queen won't permit a gay royal wedding, but losing his daughter would enfranchise his detestable step-son – and, with a backlash invasion from Italy on the horizon, he needs his kingdom as united as possible.

A twist on the romantic comedy in which four young adults navigate the social media minefield, looking for each other, for love, for validation and ultimately, for themselves – in amongst a cyber world populated by thousands of ‘followers’ and ‘friends’.

Haunted by a lack of self-confidence and self-respect, Emma, Ashley, Luke and Charlie face physical, emotional and psychological challenges, leading them to question their very identity. Are they hiding behind their online personas, or is there conviction in their tweets, pins, selfies, posts and status updates?

Like the rest of the population, they’re digitally aware, armed with Wi-Fi enabled devices and online.

Henry IV parts I & II

By William Shakespeare

Directed by Jaq Bessell

The rightful King Richard II is dead, deposed and murdered by his cousin and once loyal subject, Henry Bolingbroke. Now Bolingbroke claims the throne as Henry IV, struggling to defend the crown long enough for it to pass safely to his son Hal. But rebel armies are massing, men he once called friends set in motion a deadly plot, as history moves to repeat itself…

Revisiting the casting practices of Shakespeare’s original company of actors, this bold and energetic production sees a cast of 9 men bringing the epic story of Henry IV and his truant son to life. Swords and skirts will be wielded with equal vigour, complete with many of Shakespeare’s best loved characters such as the bawdy Mistress Quickly, witty Falstaff, warlike Hotspur and the noble trickster Prince Hal himself.

Set in a turbulent period of England’s history, this play promises a riotous clash of comedic and tragic themes; drunken revelry in an unstable time of peace gives way to the looming threat of civil war.

A raucous and current production that surprised, delighted and occasionally scandalised audiences during its initial run at the Guildford School of Acting.

Table

By Tanya Ronder

‘Go on then, table, speak. You tell us, you were there, you’ve always been there.’

Six generations, twenty-three characters and one very special piece of furniture. Tanya Ronder’s thrilling play is an epic tale of belonging, identity and the things we pass on.

From humble beginnings at the turn of the 20th century all the way through to the present day- we see characters' egos grow, watch their relationships bear fruit and observe them hopelessly try to reconnect after years apart. At the centre of the drama at all times, both physically and metaphorically, is the family table.

Table was the first play to be staged at the National Theatre’s The Shed, and premiered in April 2013. This production by the 2015 Graduates of the Guildford School of Acting was originally mounted in May 2014, and is making its London debut.

By David Holmes and Kieran O’Rouke

Directed by Jesse Briton

An intimate exploration of class, social differences and the personal cost of duty

Vienna, 1950; two British spies await orders to execute a traitor. Hiding out in the squalid basement of a luxury hotel, they presumed his arrival to be imminent but as days turn into nights nerves begin to fray…

Topical and relevant to the news agenda today, The Communist Threat explores ideas around social class, nationalism, duty to your country and Britain’s place in the world and it comes as we recognise milestone events such as the anniversary of the First World War and discuss the rise of UKIP as a political force. The play asks what patriotism is and how it differs from nationalism and why as a society we hold people up as war heroes.

Dorothy – a new play
by Bryan Hodgson

L. Frank Baum (the man behind the writing of the original Oz books) created a beautiful and timeless story with The Wonderful Wizard of Oz.

This new play explores his life and relationships, and how they influenced and drove him to create one of the worlds most celebrated tales.

From the Scarecrow to the Wizard himself, Frank Baum created each character from the love and friendship of the people around him. However, when tragedy strikes, we must ask ourselves if stories and imagination can be either a help or a hindrance in achieving acceptance of loss or whether they are a desperate clinging to what was once real.

A beautiful telling of one of the worlds most beloved storytellers.

In an ode to dressing up, over-eating, over-drinking, and even over-acting, these two young men jump from male to female, from old to young and from posh to not-so-posh in this frantic, ridiculous and often wild tour-de-force of hilarious characters and witty banter.

Oscar Wilde's timeless classic is brought to life this August in a brand new production aptly tweeting as @twoearnest. As the tag line suggests, two actors will be portraying each role in the original script.

Directed by Jaq Bessell, and featuring Bryan Hodgson and Simon Stallard, this is a new and fantastical take on a beloved story of mistaken identities, double meanings, and consequential pretending – not to be missed!!

The danger and hilarity are non-stop in this glittering whodunit set during the Christmas holidays.

Whistleblower the story of Edward Snowden

By Richard Roques

Hero or Traitor? Edward Snowden is holed up in a hotel in Hong Kong.
He has left his life in Hawaii, abandoned paradise, for a life on the run.
Tortured by thoughts of his girlfriend, his mother and father and the fate of other whistleblowers in prison, he waits. But will the CIA or the National Security Agency find him first?

`Whistleblower is always watchable. Events unfold with a thriller-like momentum…’ Lyn Gardner The Guardian 11 July 2014

`What’s impressive is the theatrical ballsiness of this London fringe production’ Kate Bassett The Times 11 July 2014

'Glad to see Whistleblower is coming back. It sticks closely to the events as they unfolded in Hong Kong and does justice to Edward Snowden's

revelations about the scale of state surveillance.'

Ewen MacAskill the journalist who broke the story for the Guardian.

Snowden `should be hanged by his neck until he is dead'.

Former CIA Director James Woolsey.

`The surveillance carried out by the U.S. Intelligence services is mass, indiscriminate surveillance.'

Nigel Farage is a haunted man. Tormented by feelings of impotence and inadequacy,

he just doesn't know how to rescue Britain from Europe's clutches. However, following a visitation from the Ghosts of Britain Past (Churchill) and Britain Quite Recent (Thatcher)

he suddenly sees a way to win over the public – only to watch his plan to save Britannia backfire spectacularly. Will it be too late for our anti-hero to save the day, his country

and his wife?

UKIP! The Musical is a rollicking satirical swipe at the most radical political party of

our time. Witty and irreverent, this exuberant musical features a host of original songs including ‘Bongo Bongo Land’, ‘Europa You Raped Her’, and the voters’ anthem,

‘Let's Pull Up the Drawbridge’.

Winner – The Stage Acting Excellence Award

‘Bitingly funny…a winning combination of catchy tunes, clever

lyrics and an inspired book’ «««« The Stage

‘UKIP! The Musical – the hit show heaped with praise’ – Daily Express

‘The script is a roaring success’ – The Spectator ‘

UKIP! The Musical is an original piece of satirical musical theatre. Written by RADA graduate Cath Day and directed by RADA graduate Jessica Williams. It became one of the biggest hits

of the 2015 Edinburgh Fringe, selling over 2,600 tickets over 22 dates.

Corbyn the Musical:

The Motorcycle Diaries

By Bobby Friedman and Rupert Myers

One of the year’s most anticipated comedies, Corbyn the Musical: the Motorcycle Diaries is a no-holds barred political satire which – unlike the pacifistic Labour leader – pulls no punches against politicians of all parties.

The show sees Jeremy Corbyn facing a nuclear stand-off with Russian President Vladimir Putin. With pressure mounting on all sides, Corbyn has to face up to the biggest challenge of his career. But the solution lies in the story of the fateful motorbike holiday apparently taken by a young Corbyn and his then-lover Diane Abbott in 1970s pre-unification East Germany.

Featuring fictional appearances from Boris Johnson, Tony Blair and Ed Miliband amongst many others, Corbyn the Musical has been described as a cross between The Book of Mormon and The Thick of It.

With original music and composition by Jen Green (The Bachelor Girls, Battle of Britain at 75 – BBC Radio 2) this script comes from the comic writing talents behind successful independent podcast “Political Takeout”, long-featured as one of the most popular political and comedy podcasts in the UK.

The Great American Trailer Park Musical

By David Nehls & Betsy Kelso

The Hit off Broadway show finally receives its LONDON PREMIERE!

There’s a new tenant at Armadillo Acres – and she’s wreaking havoc all over Florida’s most exclusive trailer park. When Pippi, the stripper on the run, arrives at Armadillo Acres and comes between the Dr. Phil-loving agoraphobic Jeannie and her tollbooth-collector husband Norbert. – the storms begin to brew!


The Great American Trailer Park Musical with music and lyrics by David Nehls and book by Betsy Kelso, is a musical comic fable exploring the relationships between the tenants at the exclusive Armadillo Acres Trailer Park in Florida.


"A delicious new musical. The joint is jammed and jumping with raucous laughter. It's like The Honeymooners meets The Best Little Whorehouse in Urinetown." — NY Post


"Joyful and unashamedly vulgar, Betsy Kelso's comic fable about women in a Florida trailer park and their no-account men is more fun than a chair-throwing episode of Jerry Springer set to music." — The New Yorker.


The show premiered at the first annual New York Music Theatre Festival in 2004 and transferred to The Dodger Stages off-Broadway in 2005, it has since played throughout the USA, Australia and Europe. This will be its British Cast Premiere.

Knowing EU

by Geoffrey Brown


Nigel Farage’s worst nightmare comes to town – an entertaining but accurate overview of the EU – just in time for the EU referendum!

Knowing EU will take a light-hearted look at the facts and foibles of the

EU – the successes and failures – the good, the bad and the ugly.

You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll enjoy the snippets of Abba – you may even discover a bit more about the EU and about some of those “facts” and

“truths” presented by the IN/OUT campaigners

Geoffrey Brown – after 20 years working within the wonderful world of the

EU, as a consultant and contractor, has decided it is time to share an

insider’s perspective of what really happens, and to add a bit of

(entertaining) sanity to the “debate” before the 23 June referendum.

Come along to Knowing EU and you may even think again about that vote you will be casting on 23 June…

There will be a Q & A following each performance after a brief interval

Paper Hearts the Musical
Written by Liam O’Rafferty

Somewhere, there are worlds waiting

A world premiere of up-lifting new British musical set in a high-street bookshop. Aspiring writer Atticus Smith lives avidly through his novel's characters until the arrival of the spirited and audacious Lilly Sprocket.

Paper Hearts is set in two parallel worlds, Atticus’s own modern day life, and the 1940s Russia torn apart by the 2nd World War that his characters inhabit. The thumping upbeat numbers of the contemporary pop-folk score performed by a company of 11 actors – many performing as actor-musicians, guide you through a tale of love, passion, and betrayal, among books.

“A musical set in a bookshop is such an original idea. Watch out West End!”
Simon May, Composer, East Enders theme

[Title of Show]

Music & Lyrics by Jeff Bowen, Book by Hunter Bell

With three weeks to go before the 2004 New York’s Musical Theatre Festival submission deadline, and knee-deep in balled-up show ideas, the struggling writer-composers decided to write a musical about two struggling writer-composers trying to write a musical with the help of their two best friends.

In short it’s a musical about two guys writing a musical with countless musical theatre references. It’s a show that feels like a rummage through the dressing-up box of Broadway history and is an inventive, fresh musical that chronicles its own creation, the lives of these four characters as they strive to make their show a success

The musical received a Tony Nomination and won 3 Obie Awards

"DELECTABLE ENTERTAINMENT! A postmodern homage to the grand tradition of backstage musicals like Babes in Arms, Kiss Me, Kate and A Chorus Line." – The New York Times

Cast:

Jeff – Daniel Mack Shand
Hunter – Louie Westwood
Heidi – Chloe Hawkins
Susan – Malindi Freeman

Director – Will Keith
Musical Director – Daniel Jarvis

[Title of Show] was chosen for production by the 2004 New York Musical Theatre Festival where it premiered. It later ran off-Broadway at the Vineyard Theatre in 2006, earning a second limited run the same year, then played at Broadway's Lyceum Theatre in 2008 for 13 previews and 102 regular performances. Writer/stars Bowen and Bell, as well as director Michael Berresse all won Obie Awards for their work on the off- Broadway production, and Bell was nominated for a Tony Award for Best Book of a Musical.

18 Oct – 6 Nov

From Ibiza to the Norfolk Broads

Written and Directed by Adrian Berry


Adrian Berryfs acclaimed sell-out production returns to London in this tale of a young David Bowie obsessive.

Martin is a boy with problems – an illness no-one understands and a head full of sound and vision. So when an unexpected gift arrives on his birthday, Martin embarks on a thrilling journey in the footsteps of his obsession, leading him to discover some long-hidden truths about himself. What follows will change his life forever...

Powerful and touching, music and magic realism collide in this darkly funny and moving production featuring Alex Walton and the voice of comedian Rob Newman. With a blistering Bowie soundtrack, the life of the pop fan is dissected in this tale of unnatural teenage wildlife."

"Berry's play is that rarest of things: a fringe play which exceeds all expectations" Time Out Magazine: CRITIC'S CHOICE

"Magic realism and dramatic resonance collide – this is a fine show"

20 Jan – Feb 5

Brexit the Musical

by David Shirreff (words) Russell Sarre & Frederick Appleby (music)

“BREXIT MEANS BREXIT”, but what the hell does that mean? Only this musical drama gets close to an answer as it takes you on a romp through the fiasco and fallout of the June 2016 Referendum. Think Brecht & Weill meet Gilbert & Sullivan. “Boris is the answer to everybody’s prayers”…or is he?

Cameron, Osborne, Gove, Farage, Theresa May, Boris Johnson, and dozens more of the usual suspects strut their stuff on a crowded stage. With guest appearances by Jean-Claude Juncker, Donald Tusk, Vladimir Putin and Angela Merkel.

Wicked words and great music from the Shirreff/Sarre/Appleby team.

There have been three previous shows by Shirreff/Sarre, known as the Crunch Trilogy: Broke Britannia! (2010), EuroCrash! (2012) and Barack & The Beanstalk (2014). That was meant to be it…..until Brexit reared its head, baying for treatment!

Others “will have their work cut out to match the wit and pace of this musical romp,” Mail on Sunday

A “rich and heady combination of intelligent, comical wordplay and fast moving, chaotic characters,” Remote Goat

Cast: Stephen Emery, Neil Jennings, James Sanderson, RJ Seeley, Chris Vincent, Elliot Blagden, Airlie Scott

Between a Man and a Woman

Written and Directed by Scott James

To the outside world, Polly and Tom seem to represent the normal married couple; successful, loving and happy. But behind closed doors, not all is what it seems. Polly's family and friends are constantly worried for her wellbeing and safety; claiming she has changed from the person she once was.

This fast paced drama centres Tom’s suppressed emotional trauma and the affect it has on those around him and promises to be a thought-provoking and unforgettable evening of theatre that brings the issue of violence at home to the forefront and offers an unexpected and chilling new perspective to the issue.

A new and harrowing play focusing on the taboo subject of domestic violence and violence in the home; it questions as to whether we can fully know what goes on behind closed doors and between four walls.
