Beauty and the Beast
Featuring a hilarious, cheeky, pun-filled script, a colourful cast of characters and magnificent musical numbers, this pantomime is sure to please families and adults a-like.
For the Sake of Argument
For the Sake of Argument follows the story of Eleanor Hickock, a passionate and argumentative polemical journalist who becomes the Iraq War’s chief evangelist. This hard-hitting production interrogates the power and danger of language, as one journalist’s words send a young man to enlist for the frontline.
The stage is set for a very spectacular execution, but the spectacle twists into a surrealist display of cat and mouse as to who is being controlled, the perpetrator or the audience?
An Enemy of the People
When you stick your head above the water and speak the truth, people will only believe you if it serves them to do so. The majority will sit behind a lie that suits their purposes, but does that make them right? Who will speak a truth that costs them personally? Only the most honourable of men.
The Musical of Musicals (The Musical)
A musical about musicals! In this hilarious satire of musical theatre, one story becomes five delightful musicals, each written in the distinctive style of a different master of the form, from Rodgers and Hammerstein to Stephen Sondheim.
