The next few weeks at The Crescent
Crescent Theatre Productions
16 Oct - 25 Jun
A lively evening of acoustic music of all types and styles including folk, pop, jazz, rock 'n' roll, soul and even light classical.
Brighouse’s comedy is set in Salford, 1880, where bootmaker Henry Hobson, a pillar of local society, fond of his drink but miserly and tyrannical at home, runs a prosperous business. A widower, he steadfastly refuses to countenance the marriage of his three daughters – all of whom work unwaged in the family business. It is the determined Maggie, the eldest and ostensibly the ‘least marriageable’, who ruthlessly takes matters into her own hands – with devastating consequences for her father.
In Glyn Robbins’ dramatisation of C. S. Lewis’ much loved classic fantasy, four children, Lucy, Edmund, Peter and Susan, venture through the back of a wardrobe into the magical Land of Narnia. Here they encounter talking animals and mythical beasts and with the aid of Aslan the lion, battle the evil that is the White Witch to save their own lives and release the kingdom from the grip of a hundred years of deep winter.
Come together this December with The Crescent's Christmas collaboration - The Wassail in the splendour of Highbury Hall; an evening of festive fun, Christmas comedy and seasonal song.
Begin your Christmas celebrations in the best way possible with the Crescent's ever-popular Wassail - a show with enough Christmas spirit to last all year!
Oskar is a lonely, bullied, teenage boy living with his mother on a housing estate at the edge of town, when a spate of sinister killings rocks the neighbourhood. Eli is a young girl who has just moved in next door. She doesn’t go to school and never leaves the flat by day. Sensing in each other a kindred spirit, the two quickly become devoted friends. What Oskar doesn’t know however, is that Eli has been a teenager for a very long time...
Nothing is a series of perceptive and at times outrageously funny, interwoven monologues. Dealing with topics such as customer service, crap television, cup cakes, sex, buses and stalking, Raczka comments on apathy, alienation and being young.
Adapted by Christie from one of her darkest novels, the play tells how ten strangers are tricked into visiting a remote island off the South coast of England. Each has a secret to hide; each is marked for murder. The weather turns and the group is cut off from the mainland, even by telephone. One by one, each is murdered in a manner suggested by the lines of a sinister nursery rhyme.
