A musical family comedy of stupidity, balloonacy and history set in the time of The French Revolution. Blanchard's Balloons follows the unusual and fascinating lives of Sophie and Jean-Pierre Blanchard, who pioneered the hot air balloon. Watch them as they escape into the crazy world of true balloonacy! Featuring dodgy Americans, Napoleon and Robbespierre. Blanchard's Balloon is a Skopera: Skiffle-Opera. Skiffle, not in a homage to Lonnie Donegan, but music made of homemade objects, playing short punchy songs which tell the story and are packed with humour. And opera in the sense of Soap-Opera not Puccini! Based on a true story and suitable for all the family.
Mr Swallow, Nick Mohammed's alter-ego maniac-monster comedy creation, has found himself in control of a fantastically talented company of three brilliant musical-theatre actors, and a live five piece band. Fantastic original musical compositions and stunning design complete the beautiful production that Swallow cannot help but completely undermine with a succession of mad interruptions; tearing down the fourth wall and bringing the entire show crashing down with it. Prepare to be dismayed and enthralled by Swallow as he tramples over Bram Stoker's gothic legacy with one of the most farcical musicals ever staged, a side-splittingly funny and anarchic shambles; a cacophony of belligerent behaviour and a fantastically funny tribute to Mohammed's insane comedy creation.
Join Mr Swallow at the debut performance of his first musical, an all singing all dancing version of the much loved classic; DRACULA! Running time: 60mins. Age Recommendation: 16+
'The Goodbye Girl' follows Paula, an ex-Broadway dancer and single mum, who is left in the lurch when her boyfriend jilts her for an acting job. Just as her faith in men - particularly those of the show business fraternity - has hit rock bottom, Paula discovers that her apartment has been leased to another crazy actor, Elliot Garfield, who wants to move in immediately! There follows an engaging tale of three people thrown together against the colourful backdrop of neurotic 90s New York, and amidst the precarious world of the acting profession.
Olivier Award-winning stage and screen actress Juliet Stevenson (Truly Madly Deeply, Death and the Maiden) takes on of one the great roles in Samuel Beckett’s surreal masterpiece Happy Days, directed by Natalie Abrahami.
Trapped in a scorched wasteland with her detached husband, Winnie keeps despair at bay with ritual, song and her trusty lipstick. But is our buoyant, hopeful heroine in denial of her ever-diminishing world?
50 years on this powerful tale of resilience – and of a woman’s ability to survive against overwhelming odds – still shocks and amazes.
Based on her personal experiences of living with and succumbing to cancer, Anat Gov's play tackles difficult life choices, presenting with sincerity and matter-of-fact humour the treatment of illness in all its highs, lows, dignities and absurdities. Translated from Hebrew and adapted by Hilla Bar and with music by composers Shlomi Shaban and Michal Solomon, this UK premiere is about the nature of courage, the role of treatment and the choices that we didn't know we could make, touching all aspects of living with illness and teaching that the question isn't "to be or not to be": it's how to be. Carrie Evans, a theatre star in her late forties, arrives at an Oncology clinic to begin a series of treatments to prolong her life. From her interactions with doctors and talking to other patients who will try anything from drugs with unpronounceable names to horse's milk to cannabis smoking, she finally reaches liberation in her realisation that there is always a choice.
UK Premiere. Israeli playwright Anat Gov died from cancer aged 58 in 2012, four years after she was diagnosed with the disease. Happy Ending won the Nissim Aloni award for Original Writing in 2011 and the Gottlieb and Hannah Rosenblum Performing Arts Award in 2012.
A witty and warm-hearted romantic comedy, She Loves Me is the story of Georg and Amalia, lovelorn assistants in a 1930s parfumerie.

An intoxicating concoction of elegance, innocence and nostalgia, She Loves Me is a perfect musical gem.
Running time: 2hrs 30mins with interval.
Sequel to The Rocky Horror Show written in the 1970's and released as a film in 1981. A satire of celebrity, with Brad and Janet trapped in a sinister TV game show.

Stand and Deliver! is a comedy musical like no other. Spawned from Naughty Sport, an outrageous, award-winning football fanzine from the late 1980s, we follow an ordinary bloke, Frank Goldenboy on a time travelling romp to 1731 where he seeks to realise his ambition of becoming a highwayman in an over-zealous attempt to safeguard the future of his beloved local football club.
Based on the 1967 film starring Julie Andrews, Mary Tyler Moore and Carol Channing, the nostalgic musical comedy is set in 1920s New York where recent arrival-from-Kansas Millie Dillmount is determined to bob her hair, dance to jazz, get a job and marry her boss - all in the modern fashion.
