Alan Bennett's stage adaptation of Kenneth Grahame's The Wind in the Willows has become a classic in its own right. When Mole goes boating with the Water Rat instead of spring-cleaning, he discovers a new world. As well as the river and the Wild Wood, there is Toad's craze for fast travel which leads him and his friends on a whirl of trains, barges, gipsy caravans and motor cars and even into battle. A wonderful evening for children of all ages.
Master story-teller, Andrew Meller, star of An Evening with the humour of Bob Newhart & Tom Lehrer, Talbot House and An Audience with Sherlock Holmes, presents a festive and topical evening of favourite Dickensian characters and stories. This 90 minute performance in two halves is a rich homage to the man who singularly influenced our Christmas festivities more than any other. There is of course Ebenezer Scrooge, Tiny Tim and the ghosts from Christmas Carol, but also Pickwick and his Christmas at Dingley Dell, Pip's Christmas encounter with the escaped convict Magwitch on the marshes, Christmas Eve in Cloisterham from The Mystery of Edwin Drood and The Christmas Dinner from Sketches by Boz. Christmas isn't Christmas without Dickens - A Very Dickensian Christmas is the perfect show for every theatre this December.

Soon nothing is as it seems in this comic thriller, full of intrigue, jealousy and brilliant one-liners.

'Ghosts' touches nerves that are as sensitive today as they were a century ago. Widowed Mrs Alving is choosing to build an orphanage to honour her dead husband. But the return of her son Oswald, combined with the priggish advice of Pastor Manders, results in a series of revelations that threaten to shatter the veneers of respectability they have all created for themselves.
Cecily, Reggie, and Wilfred are in a home for retired musicians. Every year there is a concert to celebrate Verdi's birthday and they take part. Jean, who used to be married to Reggie, arrives at the home and disrupts their equilibrium. She still acts like a diva, but she refuses to sing. Still, the show must go on... and it does. A beautiful and poignant play full of humour and wit.
An absolutely delicious piece to get your teeth into, Oh What A Lovely War is a satire of World War I but its messages and warnings are, it seems, timeless. The realities of war have not changed, even if the methods of conducting it have. Using humour and popular songs of the time, we present a tribute to the real heroes : the aptly titled cannon fodder.
