The 'Beaux': Mr Aimwell and Mr Archer, two charming, dissolute young men who have blown their fortunes in giddy London. Shamed and debt-ridden, they flee to provincial Lichfield. Their 'Stratagem': to marry for money. Lodged at the local inn, posing as master and servant, they encounter a teeming variety of human obstacles: a crooked landlord, a fearsome highwayman, a fervent French Count, a maid on the make, a drunken husband, a furious butler, a natural healer and a strange, turbulent priest. But their greatest obstacle is love. When the Beaux meet their match in Dorinda and Mrs Sullen they are most at risk, for in love they might be truly discovered. First performed in 1707.
All 37 plays in 120 minutes. The sixteen comedies are reduced to a single section and the histories are played as a ball game. For all those who hate Shakespeare here is a rapid run through the lot - for those that love him, well, indulge yourselves in this delightful evening!
In an act of pure passion, a woman chooses to cast aside her husband and risk everything for the love of a dashing young man, who betrays her. Now she finds herself totally alone, abandoned by her friends and unable to face her future. How does she then begin to rebuild her life, when the very foundations of what she has known are gone? Caught between the devil and the deep blue sea, she must find the strength to go on from within...

From the steadfast Gabriel Oak to the handsome Sergeant Troy and the lovesick Farmer Boldwood, Bathsheba's journey is one of tragedy and wrong-turnings before she finally finds true love.
The play is based on the international bestseller, available in twenty-five languages and takes us on a whistle-stop tour through the centuries from the big bang to the present day. Discover great works of art, meet colourful historical figures, learn of wars, scientific discoveries and the extraordinary achievements of mankind, and its frailties. From the Stone Age to the atomic bomb, Ilse, Walter and Ernst Gombrich lead you with infectious enthusiasm through the fascinating, entertaining and heart-warming story of the world.
A unique collaboration between the leading lights of crime fiction and country music. A rundown Memphis bar. Lust, murder and domestic horror. That long and difficult search for... The Other Half. Award-winning crime-writer Mark Billingham and leading country duo My Darling Clementine come together to present a dark and glorious mix of song and story. A show to die for.
The Federation of Rural Primary Schools in West Berkshire again collaborates with The Watermill in this remarkable project. Featuring over a hundred children from six local village primary schools, this is the performance of a new play, specially written for the children.
The novel depicts the plight of the French peasantry demoralised by the French aristocracy in the years leading up to the revolution. Retaining the thrill and tension of the French Revolutionary setting but merging it with a modern, East London aesthetic, the production reimagines Dickens' dangerous and doomed antihero Sydney Carton as a member of the 27 Club (which includes Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Kurt Cobain and Amy Winehouse). The adaptation marries three of the finest artists in their own fields that England has ever known: Dickens the master story-teller, Rattigan the great playwright and Gielgud the mercurial actor. Gielgud intended to play both Sidney Carton and a number of other roles, and this production will realise that ambition - and show off the talents of an incredible team of performers - by having thirty characters played by just eight actors.
Set in 1940s England and the secretive worlds of the cold huts of 'Station X' at Bletchley Park, this stunning piece of visual theatre uses inventive staging and multimedia projection to explore the stories and lives of the remarkable men and women whose quiet work changed the course of our history.
