The Sword and the Dope by Michael Head

Starring Stevi Ritchie & Stacey McClean

It's back and this time it's political-ish

Austerity, snap elections,'s enough to get anyone down, well let The Sword And The Dope fix that.

The return of the show celebrated by critiques as 'Monty Phython with a touch of Blackadder' (Ham and High) with 'More laughs from the stalls than any other show I can recall' (Broadway World) add a touch of 'Good old fashioned British humour at it's best' (Greenwich Mercury) even throw in 'some superb big show numbers' (Southwark News) and add a political-ish twist and it should be enough to put a smile on even Teresa May's face.

The Classic tale of King Arthur told sideways with a modern twist, The Sword and The Dope will not help with the Brexit Negotiations, public sector pay cap or NHS waiting times but it has entertained, made people laugh and had people tapping their toes and humming along for over 200 performances and we think it is about time you joined the revolution.

We can not change the world but we aim to give a great night out and in these dark times we think that is exactly what is needed. Starring Stevie Ritchie and Stacey McClean alongside the most talented and beautiful cast you will see for under 20.00 (our legal team would like to point out the last statement might not be accurate)

'The Sword and the Dope was a rollicking and light hearted show – Public Reviews

A Nazi Comparison

Clare, A young woman at university happens upon an English translation of a play written by Hitlers favourite playwright and it upsets her entire world view. She cant help but see strong parallels in how the media was manipulated then, and now. Filled with anxiety that the world she lives in is not as noble as everyone is led to believe, she digs deeper, and deeper and deeper. Jumps down a rabbit hole that eventually isolates her from everyone she knows and loves. Her friends shun her, her parents demean her, her work fires her, her teachers expel her. If the truth is the truth then why wont anyone listen? Her anger consumes her. Her thoughts turn extreme, she finds extremists to confide in... and they begin planning, something dangerous..

On Clares quest for truth, does she become her worst fear, or reveal her worst fear?

Craft Theatre, one of the top fringe theatre companies in London, brings you their newest piece, faced paced thriller A Nazi Comparison. Devised from Shalateger by Hanns Johst (Poet Laurette to the Third Reich), contemporary political rhetoric, buried facts, intense drama, physical feats, and nuanced storytelling; to bring you one of the most controversial pieces to hit London since Edward Bonds Saved

Can you handle the truth?

Christmas Farce

by Shaun Kitchener

Backstage at a regional theatre, it's the opening night of a revamped Nativity and the atmosphere among the hapless cast and crew is far from festive. But as the curtain rises and the show spirals quickly out of control, they're going to have to think fast to stop it becoming a complete turkey...

Written by BAFTA Rocliffe Comedy winner Shaun Kitchener (Hollyoaks, Positive, 5 6 7 8: A Steps Musical) and produced by the company behind Briefs, Christmas Farce is a hilarious alternative to panto; packed with laughs from beginning to end.
