The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas is based on the novel by John Boyne, one of the major best-sellers in recent years. More than three million copies have already been sold and the book has been translated into 30 languages. Set during World War II, it is a story seen through the innocent eyes of Bruno, the eight-year-old son of the commandant at a concentration camp, whose forbidden friendship with a Jewish boy on the other side of the camp fence has startling and unexpected consequences. A brave and haunting family film that will lift the brutality of the Holocaust out of the history books.

Playful, kaleidoscopic and horrific, Filter's radical version of Macbeth takes you on a strange, funny and scintillating journey to the epicentre of the "heat-oppressed brain". "Whence is that knocking? How is it with me, when every noise appals me?" A demarcated area on stage. Witches operate a strange collection of electronic musical apparatus. Macbeth is invited in to play. Filter's radical version of Macbeth fuses Shakespeare's corrosive, psychological thriller about ambition, power, witchcraft and sanity with innovative sound and music
Classic turn-of-the-century comedy of social manners. A very complicated plot that includes the famous "A Handbag!" line .. Jack Worthing is in love with Gwendolen Fairfax, daughter of the redoubtable Lady Bracknell, and cousin of his friend Algernon. They cannot wed until the mystery of his parentage (he was found in a handbag on Victoria Station) is resolved. Algy discovers that Jack has a pretty young ward, Cecily, living at the Manor and visits her pretending to be Jack's fictitious (and wicked) brother Ernest.
How Now Mrs Brown Cow is part of the hilarious series written by and starring Brendan O'Carroll.
The inept and accident prone Cornley Polytechnic Drama Society set out to present J.M. Barrie's classic tale of Peter Pan. Two acts of hysterical disaster ensue. Don't miss this hilarious new comedy from the creators of West End smash hit comedy The Play that Goes Wrong. To die will be an awfully big adventure.
Classic costume drama (Gothic thrills) from the 1930's. A young bride feels the presence of her husband's former wife in the haunting home of Manderlay. Slowly she pieces together the tragic history of the dead Rebecca and confronts the housekeeper Mrs Danvers.
The Red Chair is a surreal ballad populated with larger than life characters, told in rich and saucy Scots dialect which draws the audience into the extraordinary world of a troubled family (with a dram of whisky to help along the way). A contemporary take on folk and fairytale storytelling traditions, The Red Chair tells the story of a father who eats and eats until he turns into the chair he is sitting upon, the wife doomed to cook his meals and their 'infeasible' daughter. By turns haunting and humorous, The Red Chair takes audiences on a journey through a landscape of twisted reason, extreme compulsion and eye watering complacency, where domestic drudgery happens on an operatic scale and a father's dereliction of duty reaches epic proportions.
Produced in association with Fuel. Running time: 1hr 55mins including interval. Suitable for ages 15+
The place is Maycomb, Alabama in the Great Depression years of the 1930s. Momentous events unfold through the eyes of eight year old Scout Finch, growing up in a close knit neighbourhood with her older brother Jem and their summertime visitor Dill. When their father Atticus Finch, a well respected lawyer, mounts a vigorous and compelling case for the defence of Tom Robinson, a poor black man accused of the rape of a young white girl, an idyllic world of childhood is changed forever.
