When he founded Talewood, Dalton Wisley had a dream. A dream of creating a place where heroes and villains from books, films and video games could walk side by side, shop together and break bread together. It would be the only place in the world where Darth Vader would hold open a door for Snow White and Robin Hood would buy a drink for the Wicked Witch Of The North. But real life isn't like that. It's 50 years since it was founded and Talewood is a murky place where celebrity is king. The good guys revel in their wealth and good fortune and the baddies are left fighting for the crumbs from the table. These downtrodden do-badders are left with no choice but to strike for equality but the chosen few at the top don't want to give anything away and will do anything to hold on to their top dog status. In a world where good people are defined by what they do and not by who they are, this is one battle of good versus evil that you won't want to miss.
From a war-torn African state to conflict in a British Detention Centre, The Bogus Woman follows the journey of a young African poet and journalist, seeking asylum.

The winner of a Fringe First Award in Edinburgh 2000.

The Doppel Gang combines the wild wit of iconic comedy giants The Marx Brothers - Groucho, Harpo and Chico - with generous helpings of British humour and humility. War wages in Europe, while back in Blighty a group of entertainers battle to save a theatre from closure by masquerading as The Marx Brothers. As the Blitz tears through London, a hopeless theatre manager, Lombard, persuades a desperate double act, Tommy and Cyril and not-so-convincing male impersonator Rachel to join him in an audacious stunt; one last roll of the dice to save his building and boost morale. The curtain is about to rise, but so are the stakes as an unprecedented series of revelations leads to an exhilarating chain of events. Will anyone believe they are the real Marx Brothers?
It is 1942. At the Falcon Hotel, on the edge of an airfield in Lincolnshire, Teddy, a young bomber pilot is celebrating a reunion with his actress wife Patricia. Events take an unexpected turn, when Peter a famous heartthrob film star arrives, and an urgent bombing mission over Germany is ordered. As the night gives way to dawn, Patricia finds herself at the centre of a passionate conflict of love and loyalty as unpredictable as the war in the skies. Flare Path was first performed in the West End at the Apollo Theatre in 1942. It is based on Rattigan’s own Bomber Command experiences when he served as a tail gunner during the Second World War.

Join us for an uproarious theatrical adventure as Gulliver and his family learn to live together in a strange new world where weird is the new normal.

Days later, a tragedy occurs. Jane is accused of witchcraft - and Ann leads the charge.

Last year 4,000 people drowned trying to get to Europe in rickety migrant boats. The UK government responded by eliminating support for the main rescue programme. One man's job is to pull bodies out of the Mediterranean; the sea that gave birth to the world. And in the UK, a payday loan collector tramps from door to door hearing complaints about immigration and the jobs crisis. In a story of divide and rule, two strangers strive to find human connection in a world of separation. This is the story of two Europes - one that people are desperate to enter, and one that people are desperate to keep for themselves.
Following a plane crash on an uninhabited island, the story follows the actions of a group of adolescent schoolboys as they battle against the elements for survival and supremacy.

Sally was abandoned as a tiny baby on her Dad's doorstep. 23 years on, she is getting married to her childhood sweetheart, Si, in the ?picturesque' setting of her Dad's failing Caravan site, and longs to have her Mum alongside her for her special day. After digging into her Dad's little black book, and teasing out stories from Dave's best mates, she has narrowed her search down to three very different women from his past. Believing they've won a mystery, all-expenses paid, glamorous mini-break away, the three ?Mums' find themselves walking onto a creaky caravan site, greeted by an old flame some of them would rather forget, and right into Sally's trap.

But when his trip ends up in a horrific bar room brawl, social media explodes and the enigmatic darling of a political party becomes Europe's most wanted man overnight.

Back at home, with her husband missing presume dead, his wife Penelope and their young son are besieged by the press, ravenous for the full story.
Marie was there, she saw it all happen. She was the witness. In court she looked across the room to meet her boyfriend's gaze - but he looked straight through her - his eyes seemed unfocused, distant. She remembered his soft touch, his smile and his stories. She remembered these from the time before he aimed the gun. Before he fired the gun. Before the four shots rang out and the man fell to the ground. She was there. Marie saw it all happen... and at home there sat a sister waiting for her brother to return.
