In a remote bar in rural Ireland, an unexpected visit from a young woman who has recently moved to the area prompts talk of fairies, folklore and unquiet spirits.   As the drink flows and the local lads’ stories become increasingly frightening, it’s clear their visitor has something on her mind; and a tale to tell that’ll stop them in their tracks.    Voted one of the most significant plays of the 20th century in a National Theatre poll, this spellbinding play is by turns hilarious, moving, and deeply chilling.   Be warned.  It may haunt you long after the curtain has fallen.

Harry has visitors: A reporter, his disgraced assistant, his arch nemesis and a peculiar stranger in need of lodgings…or is it revenge?


Hugely successful, this wickedly dark comedy won the 2016 Olivier Award for Best New Play.

John Godber’s ‘Bouncers’ has drawn audiences for over 30 years and his expert mixture of laugh-out-loud comedy, underlying darkness and wacky surrealism keeps us coming back for more. In true Godber style four actors portray over twenty different characters, walking various lines between life’s comedy gold and harsh reality.


It is a typical night for Eric, Les, Judd and Ralph – four bored bouncers – facing the tipsy girls and legless lads outside the dodgy local nightclub. Will they all have a good time? Will the DJ ever play a good song? And will the bouncers make it through yet another tedious shift?

“Had I as many souls as there be stars, I’d give them all for Mephistophilis”


The legendary tale of Faustus whose unquenchable desire for fame leads him to make a pact with the devil in return for extraordinary power and knowledge. Too late Faustus realises the true magnitude of the hellish price he must pay; the eternal damnation of his soul. In this Elizabethan tragedy, Marlowe uses some of the finest poetry ever written for the stage in illustrating mankind’s insatiable desire for greatness.

A formidable and cathartic piece of theatre that will have you both jumping in fear and giggling with its dark humour.


Running time: approximately 2hrs and 15 minutes including the interval

London 1913. Militancy in the Suffragette Movement is at its height. Thousands of women of all classes serve time, endure terrible conditions and treatment in Holloway Prison in their fight to gain the vote.  Lady Celia Cain, who feels trapped in both the policies of the day and the shackles of a frustrating marriage, meets a young seamstress, Eve Douglas, and her life spirals into an emotional roller-coaster. This is a play about love and friendship, belief and betrayal, hope and despair but above all it is about bravery and an unyielding fight to end injustice for a better and fairer future.


This play includes some strong language and some smoking. There is some nudity and violence in the context of the treatment of suffragettes.


Approximate running time: 2 hours and 20 minutes, including the interval

“I feel as if I’m losing all my leaves”


André is in his 80s; he is quick with his jokes and is used to being on top of conversations and relationships. But things are getting strange: his watch keeps disappearing, his daughter’s stories don’t quite add up, his furniture changes and there are strangers in his flat.

This exciting and extraordinary play cuts through the boundaries of reality and illusion. It is intensely funny and deeply moving.


The papers called it “an unqualified triumph”. It won Best Play from the prestigious Molière Awards (2014) and The Academy Theatre Awards (2016).

                                    “An enthralling piece of theatre”.


Approximate running time; 2 hours and 20 minutes, including the interval

Originally produced by the RSC in the late 1970’s, at GWT in 1987 and more recently in London’s West End. Both a vivid record of a slice of showbiz history and politically astute Privates on Parade follows the trials and tribulations of an army song and dance company as they entertain the troops during the 1948  Malayan Emergency. Deliciously tatty light entertainment, enjoyably rude jokes, flamboyant outfits, many men in frocks are coupled with sudden jolting drama when violence flares. Gloriously entertaining and often deeply touching – join in the fun, clap your hands , tap your feet and remember your hankie.



This play includes some strong language, some violence and some nudity.
