Of Mice & Men by John Steinbeck

Adapted by Steinbeck himself from his classic novel. Of Mice And Men tells the story of George and his simple minded companion Lenny, two casual labourers in 1930's California.

Ron Barber Studio

Head-Rot Holiday by Sarah Daniels

Christmas 1991 - hardly a time for celebration at Penwell Special Hospital, a secure psychiatric unit for women. Funny, compassionate and unflinchingly honest, Head-rot Holiday invites you to share the lives of staff and patients at this particularly tricky time of year. Is it a trip that you will dare to take?

This play contains language and scenes of an adult nature.

29th Nov to 2nd Dec at 7.45pm plus matinee 30th Nov at 2.30pm

The Flies by Jean-Paul Satre

In a desolate town, high in the mountains, a young man returns to his birthplace. His father, the King, has been murdered by his mother and her paramour, and the sun-scorched inhabitants of the town are tormented by a plague of flies in retribution for the crime
