This Happy Breed by Noel Coward

For December, we return to Noel Coward. Quite removed from the author's usual comedy of manners. Written in 1943, this play looks back at the world wars through the eyes of Frank Gibbons and his neighbours, exploring the struggles of being the 'new breed' looking toward the future.

Set in the Gibbons home, This Happy Breed opens in 1919 and takes us all the way to World War II. This brilliant play gives us a vital insight into one of the most precarious periods in our history.

The Roy Orbison Experience

The Roy Orbison Experience performing the songbook of Roy Orbison, including Pretty Woman, Penny Arcade, You Got It, Only The Lonely, I Drove All Night, plus many more hits from his career

The Roy Orbison Experience is a celebration of the music of Roy Orbison, with the amazing vocal talent of Oliver Harris, and with an excellent experienced fully live band of talented musicians. This is guaranteed to be an experience you won’t want to miss. This is not a look-a-like tribute act, but rather a special live performance faithfully replicating the unique unrivalled sound of Roy Orbison.

Butterflies Are Free
by Leonard Gershe

The first production production of Butterflies Are Free, was nearly ten years ago. This is such a delightful, poignant comedy, and so successful with our audiences, we thought we should include it again in this season's programme. The original cast of four will be returning to the stage to recreate this visit to 'Flower Power America'. 

Hopeful musician Don Baker has left his overbearing mother to live on his own for the very first time. Delighted to find Jill, his new neighbour, is happy to unlock the connecting door between their apartments, he foresees a future exceeding all his greatest dreams.

Bouncers by John Godber

Hitting our stage in May, we are very excited to present our long awaited production of Bouncers by John Godber. This brilliant comedy was first performed at Edinburgh Festival in 1977.

Hilarious, vulgar, frenetic, and highly physical. Bouncers is an international sensation, gathering awards around the world and becoming one the most performed plays across the UK. Bouncers is eye-wateringly funny, celebratory, and as relevant today as it ever was.

The Deep Blue Sea 
by Terence Rattigan

Closing out our 2023/24 season, is Terence Rattigan's devastating Masterpiece, The Deep Blue Sea.

Inspired, in part, by a secret relationship shared between Rattigan and another man, The Deep Blue Sea is a powerful account of lives blighted by love - or lack of it. The play opens with the failed suicide of Hester Collyer, who has deserted her husband for the charms of an ex-fighter pilot.
