This theatre piece tells the story of best mates Jackie and Danny, seventeen years old and intent on abandoning their apprenticeships for adventure. In 1914 the threat of war rumbled in Europe.

They enlist in the 14th Royal Warwickshire Regiment Pals Battalion and serve through the Battle of the Somme, Italy and back to France. This is the story of the two boys, their lives, loves and families caught up in the horrors of the War. With new songs and "trench" songs sung by the soldiers - a story not to be missed.

It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife... The ultimate romantic comedy, Jane Austen’s story of the five Bennet sisters and their relentless pursuit of suitable husbands is one of the best-loved novels ever written, constantly topping the polls of favourite books. When feisty Elizabeth Bennet first meets handsome bachelor Fitzwilliam Darcy, she thinks him arrogant and conceited. When she later discovers that he has scuppered the relationship between his friend Bingley and her beloved sister Jane, she is determined to dislike him more than ever. In the sparkling comedy of manners that follows, the family’s lives are turned upside down as Jane Austen shows the folly of judging by first impressions and pokes gentle fun at the affectations and etiquette of provincial middle-class life.

No-one could foresee the world-changing events of Boxing Day 2004. Or the remarkable elephant who would carry Will deep into the jungle after the Tsunami. But before he can allow the orangutans, monkeys, snakes and other animals to heal his wounds, he has to escape the hunters and their terrifying boss, the evil palm oil king, Mr Anthony.

Set amid the turmoil of the French revolution this epic play follows the fortunes of a band of dedicated rebels, fighting for the lives, their love and their liberty. The heroic struggle leaves a proud and historic legacy for generations to come. The original book is one of the few that most people know both the start and end of - from "It was the best of times, it was the worst of times .." to "It is a far far better thing that I do .."
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.
