Thirteen-year-old Robert Caligari has a rather nasty habit of kicking pigs. But today, Robert is going to get his comeuppance. Today is the day that Robert Caligari is going to die. Kill The Beast present the world premiere of this stage adaptation of the cult novel by occasional Time Lord Tom Baker. This grotesquely comic farce features talking piggybanks, shark mutilation, and a nasty incident involving weedkiller-cornflakes.
This affectionate, moving and fantastically funny homage to the greatest comedy double act that Britain has ever seen vividly brings back warm memories of a bygone era. Recreating some of the finest moments of Eric and Ernie's television and stage performances, cherished moments from the archives sit alongside new material created by the performers. Together they make a brilliant comedy that recreates the all-ages appeal of Morecambe and Wise in their heyday.
Of all the stories ever told - Of all the figures in history - Of all the men that have lived. Look at Jesus through the eyes of those around him: his mother, brother and followers, the political and religious elite. What do you see? The Son of God or a Jewish terrorist? A poet-philosopher or a fraud? Whoever the man Jesus was, he inspired the history of the world.
I have a friend in the force and he tells me that, day to day, the police are hanging on by a whisker... by that much...It’s not just here, mark you. It’s nationwide. One breath of wind - anarchy! Things are not right on The Bluebell Hill Development. Theft, petty crime, vandalism, all the ills of modern suburban existence are on the increase. Newcomers Martin and his sister Hilda are the crime wave’s latest victims - on the very day of their housewarming party, no less - and resolve to take action. After all, the law of the land, all that’s right and proper and even God Himself are surely on their side. But what starts out as a well intentioned neighbourhood watch scheme soon develops into something altogether more sinister. In these matters, it seems the frying pan is closer to the fire than anyone realises. Alan Ayckbourn’s cautionary tale of the dangers of taking the law into your own hands is his seventy fifth play. It is also the three hundredth new play to be commissioned by the SJT.
A powerful new play based on the true story of one of the most turbulent industrial battles - the 1972 Builders' Strike. By the 1970s the UK's building companies were making millions re-building the country, whilst building workers faced the most dangerous working conditions and poorest wages of any trade. In the summer of '72, for twelve weeks, 300,000 building workers launched their industry's first national all-out strike to end cash "lump" wages and seek better pay by using the controversial tactic of 'Flying Pickets'. Five months after the apparent success of the strike, which had enraged the construction industry and government, 24 builders in North Wales were charged with offences including conspiracy and affray, and were prosecuted at Shrewsbury Crown Court in 1973. They became known as "The Shrewsbury 24", and three of them were jailed, including building workers Des Warren and Ricky Tomlinson.
