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.
Murley Dance presents Hail Britannia, four original pieces that fuse theatricality with classical technique in a thought-provoking programme featuring differing aspects of British culture. The world premi?re of these newly commissioned pieces range from the typical English country garden to quirky place names, from the complex relationship between a King and his priest to the global influences that define multicultural Britain today. The centrepiece of the programme will be Highgrove Suite, choreographed by David Murley and with music by leading British composer, Patrick Hawes. This new ballet is inspired by the gardens at Highgrove, HRH The Prince of Wales's country home. Up and coming nineteen year-old choreographer Richard Chappell will explore the turbulent and ultimately tragic relationship between Henry II and Thomas a Becket in a piece that is both intensely physical and compelling.
A captivating new play about love, family and ever-shifting identities My Name is... tells the story behind a story that fleetingly hit headlines in 2006 and continues to resonate throughout the UK and beyond. When Gaby disappears from her Scottish home, it is assumed that her Pakistani father Farhan, has kidnapped her and the spiralling headlines are only momentarily silenced when it emerges that Gaby may have fled of her own accord, choosing to spend her life with her father in Pakistan. To her Scottish mother Suzy's distress, Gaby declares, "my name is Ghazala" and turns her back 'Gaby' and seemingly, the West. This moving verbatim play reveals a cross-cultural love story that began in late 70s Glasgow, a world away from the frantic ?tug of love' well documented in the world's press.
Recommended for ages 14+. Running time: 80mins straight thorugh with no interval.
