Three years since the report of his disappearance in action, the Kellers are still waiting, hoping against hope for news of their son's return. Three years of waiting, and their younger son struggles to break the news to his mother and father that he is in love with the girl his brother left behind. Three lives are on hold, until they can finally accept that Laurie may never return. Events come to a head one evening, when Annie returns to her home town and forces the Keller family to confront their hidden past, their own culpability and the awful part they may have played in their son's demise. Powerful, passionate and frighteningly relevant, All My Sons, brought Arthur Miller his first major success as a playwright. This moving, tragic drama is a compelling tale of the ideological conflict between father and son, a merciless exposure of wartime profiteering and the American Dream.
The people and history of a country house. A dazzling elaborate comedy of ideas. This is Stoppard of 'Jumpers' and 'Travesties' fixed by sublime abstraction and human absurdity. The plot revolves on a scandal that rocked the household of Lady Croom almost 200 years ago: a sexual liaison, possibly involving Lord Byron and resulting in a fatal duel. But did events really take place as they seem, and how does the Croom's handsome and dashing young tutor and his brilliant pupil Thomasina fit into the story? All will be revealed or will it? First performed at the National Theatre in 1993, this is a dazzling comedy of ideas.

At the crucial moment comes the disclosure that Logue is not what he seems. Carefully researched, this is the true story of a friendship that changed history.
London, Soho... 1956. Where glamour rubs up against filth, and likes it; where the posh mix with musicians, whores and racketeers; where 'virginity is no city trade', and where a dashingly impecunious bachelor in need of quick cash and a good time has to live on his wits. Turning con-man to fool his rich uncle, he variously becomes a lord, a high class call girl, and - God forbid - a poor actor. But a beautiful Soho tart is also on the scam: a whore to some, a religious instructor to others, and a debutante in need of an eligible bachelor to yet more...
