Dona Rosita wants to get married. Will it be to the lovable (but poor) Cocoliche, or the rich (but cruel) Don Cristobita, or will a stranger from her past come back and sweep her off her feet? A host of mischievous characters pepper Lorca's surreal and farcical comedy, infused with poetry and music, which will transport you to a beautiful Andalusian town. But have these people turned into puppets, or are the puppets people?
The same story as the film, barred by the Director (Stanley Kubrick) from being shown in the UK due to death threats he received. Not suitable for children. A controversial and violent tale about choices. Alex gets his kicks by raping and fighting his way around a future city with his gang of droogs, fired up by drugs secreted in their favourite drink of milk. When he gets caught, he chooses the quick way out - being programmed to behave in a non-violent manner. Burgess's cult allegory of free will, adapted from the novella, in all its urban darkness.
Every act of remembering is an act of storytelling. So, here's mine. It starts with a spotty teenager at a Motorhead gig and ends at the cutting edge of memory research. The bellowing fans, the smell of beer and sweat, the thunderous music. When I think back, it's all so vivid. And it's all completely made up. Join me, Eamonn Fleming, writer, performer and O level biologist (grade C) as I stumble through the amazing world of memory palaces, false memories and Werther's Originals. A funny, startling show about not being able to trust a single thing you remember.
Veteran salesman Willy Loman is used to spending his life 'riding on a smile and a shoeshine', but recently things haven't been so good. He seems to have lost his golden touch; his grown-up sons, Biff and Happy, no longer idolise him as they used to and he is haunted by missed opportunities and a trouble past. His wife Linda is struggling to aid her increasingly disturbed husband, as she tries to hold the family together and keep Willy from descending further into desperation. But as the truth of Willy and his sons' imperfect past begins to unravel, Willy starts to lose faith in the two things he believes in: his family, and, in Miller's words, his need 'to leave a thumbprint somewhere on the world'. Death of a Salesman burst upon the international scene in 1949 and won the Drama Critics' Circle Award, the Tony Award and the Pulitzer Prize, becoming a benchmark for modern theatre.
Stage version of the enchanting novel. Young, handsome and eligible, Frank Churchill is just what Highbury needs. Full of good intentions, Emma immediately sets about her match-making plans.

'How would you feel about sitting in front of that nice old village pub on a sunny afternoon while convoys of 40-ton tankers roll past six feet away?' Deerland Energy's plans to drill for shale gas in the pretty village of Fenstock are going well. The company is looking at big profits. They can count on the support of distinguished scientists working in University departments funded by the energy companies while at local level, Councillor Pilbeam, Chair of the Planning Committee, seems to be open to lucrative offers. The only slight snag is a ragged band of protesters, reluctantly led by retired academic, Elizabeth Blackwood. Surely she's just another 'mad old biddy', as she's characterised by ruthless PR guru Joe Selby? This new razor-sharp black comedy by Alistair Beaton takes a timely look at the conflicted core of planetary energy and earthly power.
The lives of the women who worked in the mustard gas factories.
Miss Shepherd is a curious and enigmatic lady. Alan knows very little about her. She used to drive ambulances in the war, might have been a nun, sells pencils and pamphlets and has an unexplained aversion to piano music. But somehow she lives in the playwright’s garden and has done for years. The Lady in the Van is based on renowned British playwright Alan Bennett’s own recollections of the indomitable Miss Shepherd and is, as with any Bennett play, a beautifully observed, sharply intelligent and wonderfully witty drama.
Andrew Makepeace Ladd III and Melissa Gardner's 50-year relationship is chronicled through their letters. From their first childhood Valentines to their final guilty goodbyes, through the letters the audience learns of Andrew and Melissa's lifelong hopes and dreams, their failures and triumphs, and ultimately, their love for one another. Love Letters was first performed in New York in 1989 by John Rubinstein and Kathleen Turner. Since then, it has attracted several all-star casts, including Paul Newman and his wife Joanne Woodward. Charlton Heston and Lydia Clarke Heston first performed the two-hander in 1997 during a brief British regional tour. The play is unusual in that it has no director and no designer and requires, literally, no rehearsal. During the performance, clocking in at just under two hours, the actors sit on the stage at a table and read directly from the assorted letters.
Benjamin Rubin is a cantankerous old writer, whiskey aficionado and pedant, still basking in the reflected glory of long-ago success. Martin Wegner is a rising young literary star, heralded as "the voice of his generation". When Martin is given the opportunity to develop his new play under the mentorship of his idol, the two writers meet, accompanied by Martin's brilliant wife Gina, and hosted by Erwin, the administrator of the prestigious arts fund that has thrown them together. In a dilapidated art nouveau villa, somewhere in the German countryside, two massive egos are set on a collision course in this perceptive and compelling comedy about art and artists and the legacy of fame.

Thornhill, a suave and successful advertising executive, is abducted by thugs who insist he is a man called George Kaplan, there's obviously been a mix up.

Written and performed by Margarita Sidirokastriti, One Item Only helps young audiences to share in and understand our hero's adventurous journey, as he travels towards an uncertain but ultimately optimistic future.
