In an age of internet dating, speed dating, blind dating and Tinder, isn't it harder not to find someone these days? Alan doesn't think so.

Very, very single. Which wouldn't be a problem, but his sisters are all living romantic dreams with their various successful partners. So when his parents invite the family together for an anniversary dinner, Al does something rather reckless - he asks Zoe, a girl on work experience, to pose as his girlfriend for the night. Unfortunately for Al, Zoe's got romantic problems of her own... amongst other things! Will it be the start of a beautiful friendship or the end of the world as they know it?

Graham Greene's satirical masterpiece is about the ridiculousness of cold war paranoia and sees antihero Wormold - in need of some money (his daughter has reached that 'expensive age'!) - attempt to lie his way through his new job as Agent 59200, MI6's man in Havana. With only his experience as a vacuum-cleaner salesman to rely on, he files bogus reports, apparently randomly dreaming up military installations based on vacuum-cleaner designs, only to discover that his stories start to prove alarmingly close to the truth...
The story of frustrated young (illegally young in modern terms) love and death and the vendetta between two families in a tight-knit Italian community. One of Shakespeare's most popular and enduring dramas it has also been re-done as film, ballet, musical (most notably "West Side Story") and ice spectacular!
Inspired by the cult 1970s novel The Disc Man, the play explores 'dice-living' in which a man decides to run his life according to decisions made by the throw of a dice. Darkly comic, highly imaginative and out of left field.

In a bombed out building during the First World War in the French town of Ypres, two officers discover a printing press and create a newspaper for the troops. Far from being a sombre journal about life in the trenches they produced a resolutely cheerful, subversive and very funny newspaper designed to lift the spirits of the men on the frontline. Defying enemy bombardment, gas attacks and the disapproval of many of the top Brass, The Wipers Times rolled off the press for two years and was an extraordinary tribute to the resilience of the human spirit in the face of overwhelming adversity.
