How much is that A* worth? How far would you go to get your child that coveted A*? What happens to a family when privilege is abused and trust vanishes... when cheating becomes a code to live by and deception a justified means to an end? They have it all - the perfect family life - the perfect future. Or so it seems. High achieving, successful, loving parents, they only want the very best for their son. That's what everyone wants after all... but who's it really for? When desire allows you to lose sight of what is morally right, when manipulation takes over, the consequences can be devastating. What is the true price of success? A contemporary story of a family torn apart by a hunger for success and fear of failure.

Faced with the unprecedented horror of the war Stephen clings to the memory of Isabelle as his world explodes around him.
The Bob Dylan Story is the new stunning and definitive tribute to a songwriting genius who spoke for a whole generation. Enhanced by a top backing band, the show lovingly and authentically recreates the many songs that made Dylan the living legend he is today, the way we all remember hearing them.

Timeless love songs like Lay Lady Lay and I'll Be Your Baby Tonight; the mysticism of All Along The Watchtower or Mr Tambourine Man. The lyrical tour de force of Hurricane to the catchy simplicity of Knocking On Heaven's Door - these and many more memorable songs, along with some of the stories behind them, are captured to perfection. Experience the thrill and energy of a full-blown electric Dylan concert planted firmly in the 1960s, a time when anything seemed possible, in a show that will remind you what REAL nostalgia feels like, and have you digging out your old vinyls to sustain the pleasure just that little bit longer.
