Chasing a mysterious white rabbit with a pocket watch, Alice tumbles down a rabbit hole and into a world of fun and adventure. There she meets the colourful characters of Wonderland and hears their fantastical tales. After a mad tea party, a curious game of croquet and a nail-biting trial to find out who stole a very special plate of jam tarts, will Alice find her way home? The creators of last year's sell-out Christmas show, Peter Pan, bring to life Lewis Carroll's classic novel, 150 years after it was first published. Join Alice in an enchanting world of talking animals, a bad-tempered Queen and a Mad Hatter for an unforgettable musical adventure.

Caught between the devil and the deep blue sea, she must find the strength to go on from within...

A new play about depression and the lengths we will go to for those we love. The show involves members of the audience, making each performance unique.
You will enter a world of grotesque characters, fantastic ritual and heart-rending drama. In the Great Castle of Gormenghast you will meet Steerpike, the pale power-crazed, ambitious kitchen boy; Fuchsia, the wild, romantic, raven-haired daughter of the Earl; and Titus, the timid, fine-boned rebellious heir to the whole corrupt castle. In this vast rotting kingdom of corridors and shadows you will encounter a strange tale of greed, honour, madness and love. Not for the faint-hearted.
