This comedy, which could also have been entitled “An Opening Night's Dream”, uses Shakespeare's favourite literary device of a play within a play. Three actors –an American, a French woman and an Italian woman- have to perform in honour of The Bard under the direction of a demanding and eccentric British director who wants them to play Shakespeare according to 16th century practice. The last part of the rehearsal is far from reassuring : tension mounts as the actors attempt to dance an impossible jig in traditional costume, struggle to stage the heroine's implausible death, fret over the ridiculous superstitions surrounding “Macbeth” and argue about whether Shakespeare is the true author of his plays. Even the poet's ghost meddles in the play and sticks his oar in on the play's opening night. Zany and quirky, this comedy is a declaration of love to Shakespeare…with a plastic duck.

The Accrington Pals is a play centred around the women and men of one town during the raising of Kitchener's Army at the start of World War 1.
This new production begs the question: What if World War 1 were to happen today?
May is a hardworking, independent woman who has by default become the epicentre of the town. Close by are Annie, Sarah and Bertha.
May's young lodger, Tom, has signed up to the Army with his best friend Ralph and Annie's pigeon-fancying husband, Arthur. They have their reasons, reasons that May struggles to understand and rails against.
In the boys' absence, Ralph's girlfriend, Eva, replaces Tom in May's life. The men are dissapearing from Accrington as the women close ranks to defend what remains. All the while Reggie ducks and dives about town, trying to make some sense of a disintegrating family.
While the town grapples with the idea of war, an odd figure emerges as the voice of reason... War is a necessity.
Accrington is a town that throbs with life, even as death advances.

Our Town, written in 1938, gave the playwright one of his three Pulitzer Prizes. It is a classic and simple bitter-sweet tale of life, love, growing up and loss.
