One of Ayckbourn's funniest and best loved comedies, A Chorus of Disapproval centres on a diffident widower who attempts to escape from his loneliness by joining the local amateur list operatic society. By not saying 'no' to anything, be it a request to obtain confidential information from his company or an offer of illicit sex, he advances, by accident rather than design, from a one-line part to the lead. Ayckbourn's script shows us how painfully embarrassed are the British in the face of emotion and keeps us laughing in happy recognition.

Dancing in the show requires all types of styles. This colourful retelling of the biblical story about Joseph, his uncanny abilities and his designer coat sings out to young and old alike with a score which is wall to wall hits - including Close Every Door and Any Dream Will Do. In this retelling of the Biblical story, Joseph is a handsome young man who is his father's favourite child, able to interpret dreams, and the bearer of an amazing coat. These facts lead Joseph's eleven brothers to become insatiably jealous. Thus, they sell Joseph into slavery to some passing Ishmaelites. After refusing the advances of his owner's wife, Joseph is sent to jail. Once in jail, he quickly becomes popular due to his ability to interpret dreams. The Pharaoh soon hears of Joseph's ability and appoints him to the post of Number Two man in Egypt. Years later, Joseph's now starving brothers arrive in Egypt and ask Joseph, whom they don't recognize, for assistance. Joseph, in turn, gives his brothers a scare, but eventually grants them all they desire, reveals his identity, and reunites the family.

First seen in 1937, when it ran for an amazing 1646 performances, Me and My Girl swept first London's West End and subsequently Broadway in the mid 1970's following its updating by Stephen Fry and Mike Ockrent, and proceeded to win almost every award going.
Meet Fred. He's just a regular guy who wants to get on in life: get a job, find a nice girl, settle down. The only problem is that Fred is a puppet, and that's where his dependency issues start. Day to day life is tough when you rely on three other guys being with you at all times. Out for a quiet walk, on a date, in the bathroom, life is never simple for the puppets amongst us. Created in association with puppetry experts Blind Summit, this "massively entertaining" comedy theatre show is about an outsider trying to make his mark in a world in which he needs a lot of help. Witty, poignant and full of Fred's badass attitude, Meet Fred features a mouthy puppet and, as with all Hijinx productions, live performance by actors with and without learning disabilities.
