The play follows the adventures of Rene, the hapless cafe owner in worn-torn occupied France, as he and his wife, Edith, struggle to keep for themselves a priceless portrait stolen by the Nazis and kept in a sausage in the cellar. Rene is hiding two British airmen and is endeavouring, with the help of the Resistance, to repatriate them. However, communications with London through a wireless set disguised as a cockatoo add to the many embarrassments he endures in the company of his patrons. Matters come to a head when news breaks that the Fuhrer is planning to visit the town! Rene needs all the wit he can muster to save his cafe and his life. Come and re-live the TV series, the knockwurst sausages, the fallen Madonna's and the classic phases such as "Listen very carefully, I shall say this only once"!
Love from a Stranger is a blood-curdling drama about frustrated spinster Alix King who has been engaged for years to Dick. Dependable but dull, Dick refuses to marry Alix until he can support her. When Alix unexpectedly inherits a fortune Dick is too proud to accept sharing it. Then along comes a stranger. Handsome, successful and just that little bit dangerous, Gerald sweeps her off her feet. Before you know it they are married and move into Philomel Cottage. All too soon their happiness begins to disintegrate. Strange things begin to happen and Alix suspects that the man she rushed into marrying may not be what he seems to be. And who knows, maybe Alix has some dark secrets of her own. This chilling thriller is a must for all Christie fans - full of twists and turns as it builds to a surprising and murderous denouement.
Timid football fan Percy is down from Manchester with the lads and after the match is picked up by lovely young prostitute Cyrenne. The lads bet he won't spend the night with her but, uncharacteristically he accepts the bet and goes to her basemen flat. He is shy, gullible and believes all her lies about her exclusive education, her rich family and her exciting life. He would rather talk then 'do' anything and gradually they open up to one another - she learns about his loneliness, his longing for love, his dull job and hobbies. Eventually he discovers she's from an ordinary background, abused by her stepfather, and is struggling for some pride and independence. The secrets of their hearts somehow balance out and, at the end of the play, it looks as if Percy might have the courage to..or will he?
Classic family drama from the author of An Inspector Calls. It is 1919 and Mrs Conway, an easy going widow, and her daughters are enjoying a life filled with entertaining, laughter and young men. All have high spirits and high hopes for the future. But eighteen years later the optimistic aftermath of the first world war has faded and things have progressed not necessarily according to their rose tinted predictions. One of J B Priestley's finest plays, 'Time and the Conways' questions the concept of time, destiny and predestination.
Updated from Brian Clark's 1978 play to take into account medical advances over the past 30 years. After a road accident, an intelligently independent and sexy sculptor, now forced to rely on others, fights to reclaim the crucial decisions about her own life and death.
Based on the Charles Shulz comic strip Peanuts. We follow the characters, including Snoopy, from Valentine's Day to the baseball season. For all the family.
