Boring, vanilla, Horlick's swiller William Shight's most interesting trait has always been his snigger inducing name. Up until now that is! Since landing his dream job at one of the country's top advertising agencies, things have taken a nipple twisting turn for the shocking. Christina Black, the company director, has taken a shine to our William and attempts to seduce him with an indecent proposal. Clearly overwhelmed by the attention and having no friends or family to turn to, poor William decides the only thing he can do is seek the advice of the only two men in his life he can trust, the hilariously argumentative Gabriel and Gideon...his sex conscience. Willy tries in vain to resist but in the end relents and signs a 69 page contract, the one Chrisitna intends to use to make a man out of him! The 20 pages of 'don't' and 49 pages of 'do' whatever the hell I want - will lead William on a hilariously painful journey of a lifetime. Guided by his argumentative conscience., can he salvage his integrity and ability to sit down without grimacing? Or will he be completely corrupted by the seductive power of Christina and the sixty nine?? Only William's 'true self' can decide the outcome!
For ages 16+
Early in September 1914 the Mayor of Accrington called for 100 men to form a battalion. Over 1200 men volunteered in only ten days. Near Somme at 7.30a.m. in the bright sunshine of 1st July 1916 over 700 Accrington Pals advanced from their trenches. As they came across the 300 yards of 'No Man's Land' they were swept by machine gun and rifle fire. In less than twenty minutes most dead or wounded. Not one man wavered or turned back. This moving play tells their story and that of their wives and sweethearts.
The story follows Phileas Fogg and his trusty servant Passepartout as they try to circle the globe faster than any man in history, for a bet of 20,000. Through teeming jungles and dazzling cities - using every possible means of transport - they battle against red tape, black hearted villians, and the bull-headed Detective Fix who is determined to stand in their way. Can Fogg complete his journey in time and still rescue a beautiful princess from the jaws of certain death? Bring your passport along and find out.
First performed in Copenhagen in 1879. Christmas Eve. Excitement and love filled the Helmer's apartment.

Tension increases as the characters react against one another and this taut and gripping drama ends as Nora demands her right to individual freedom. One of the great landmark plays of the nineteenth century.
