When Stella sets off to visit London with her parents, Lord and Lady Saxby, she has no idea her life is in danger! Waking up three months later, only her Aunt Alberta can tell Stella what has happened. But not everything Aunt Alberta tells her turns out to be true and Stella quickly discovers she's in for the fight of her life against her very own awful Auntie!
City and country, old and new collide at Colonel Pawar's ancestral home - the shabby and un-chic Lakshman Villa. Confined within these walls, his wife Mrs Pawar pines for the cultural polish of London, New York or Paris! Enter the good looking and newly eligible Ronny - a quiet and withdrawn young British man who is here to scatter the ashes of his love. The Pawars have found a potential suitor to their quick-witted and resolute daughter Katrina, who is sharp, sassy and in complete control, until she learns of her parents intentions. What could possibly go wrong?
In a small town in Yorkshire, a beautiful widow is being wooed by two suitors. Fresh from the City and with endless money to dispose of, the older one showers her with gifts - which the younger (handsome, impecunious, an inveterate gambler) wants to put to better use. A love triangle, then; a tale of rivalry and avarice. But money's a slippery commodity and all is not quite as it seems. Throw in a bailiff, a drunkard, a vamp, a second-hand clothes dealer and two upwardly mobile servants, and the complications multiply. Adapted from Alain-Rene Lesage's savage eighteenth-century comedy Turcaret, Blake Morrison's For Love or Money is a story of monstrous wealth and whopping lies.
Classic drama of a woman consumed by her passions and driven to destroy all she should love. Hedda's recent and unexpected marriage to worthy but dull academic Tesman is threatened when she returns from honeymoon to find that Lovborg, a charismatic but dissolute previous admirer, has reformed his ways and published a best-selling masterpiece. His now-found success now threatens Tesman's own claim to a professorship - which is his only hope of supporting Hedda in the style she demands. Tesman is already in debt to another of Hedda's admirers, the dangerous Judge Brack. But suddenly events seem to put Hedda in a position to control all their destinies. This is a blistering examination of a woman in turmoil.
As Bob and Fiona clumsily try to cover up their affair, their spouses' intervention only adds to the confusion. William and Mary Featherstone become stuck in the middle, falsely accused of adultery and with no idea as to how they've become involved. The plot culminates in two disastrous dinner parties on successive nights, shown at the same time, after which the future of all three couples seems in jeopardy...
Eunice struggles to fit in. When she joins a wealthy family as their housekeeper, the very reason for her awkwardness, long hidden and deeply buried, leads inexorably to a terrible tale of murder in cold blood - on Valentine's Day. Ruth Rendell's brilliant plot unravels a lifetime of deceit, despair and cover-ups which, when revealed, brings a shocking revelation almost as grizzly as murder itself.
It's all very well stealing from the rich to give to the poor, but when you have no sense of direction then mayhem ensues! Robin Hood is lost in Sherwood Forest. It's not his fault; there are after all a lot of trees. But once again it falls to Maid Marian to save the day and get him and the Merry Men out of a scrape. They may wear the tights, but Marian certainly wears the trousers! Join us this summer for a swashbuckling show for all the family as our team of actor musicians re-tell this classic story of heroism, valour and the power of a strong woman with music, song and slapstick humour. This show will delight audiences of all ages; will Marian reach her target and will she set Robin's heart aquiver?
A seemingly innocent conversation soon turns into a dangerous reality for Guy Haines when he meets Charles Bruno on a train journey. Ahead lies a deadly nightmare of blackmail and psychological torment that threatens to cost Guy his career, his marriage and his sanity. His choice: to kill, or to be framed for a murder he didn't commit. Based upon the modern classic of murder and suspense by the writer of The Talented Mr Ripley, Patricia Highsmith's powerful and compelling psychological thriller Strangers on a Train was famously filmed by Alfred Hitchcock and is adapted for the stage by Craig Warner.
In early-twentieth century York apparently ordinary women with homes, husbands and children resolved to make a change. They ran safe houses, organised meetings, smashed windows and fire-bombed pillar boxes. It was risky, it was exhilarating, it was ground-breaking: but until now the story of York's suffragettes has not been told.
The as yet untitled production will draw on a range of historical research to set the story within both the national suffragette campaign at the start of the 20th century and the present day, a hundred years later. The play will be performed on a spectacular scale by a cast of around 150 volunteers, who will once again perform on the streets of York before for the first time moving onto the stage at York Theatre Royal. There will be parts for women and men of all ages, from Heworth housewives and railway workers to teenage arsonists and the Prime Minister.
This event takes place in York
