The Lady In The Van

Henry V29 Oct - 5 Nov

Henry V

Henry IV is dead; the wild, undisciplined Hal has been crowned Henry V.

Relatively Speaking19 Nov - 3 Dec

Relatively Speaking

When Ginny goes to the home of her much older lover to end their relationship and to retrieve some compromising letters, she is secretly followed by her current partner, Greg, who believes she is going to visit her parents! The outcome in this classic early Ayckbourn is a comedy of mistaken identity and failing relationships; hilarious but with a typically darker streak.

Frankenstein28 Jan - 11 Feb


Nick Dear’s 2011 adaptation of Mary Shelly’s classic novel is a thrilling, deeply disturbing gothic tale.
Cast out into a hostile world, meeting cruelty wherever he goes, Frankenstein’s creature – childlike in innocence, grotesque in form – learns the ways of humans: how to ruin, how to hate, how to debase and finally, how to lie. A moving exploration of scientific responsibility and of the very nature of good and evil.

Visiting Companies

The Age of Consent3 Sep

The Green Room Theatre Company

The Age of Consent

The Age of Consent places in counterpoint two acutely uncomfortable monologues about childhood, responsibility and the shattering of innocence. One voice is a teenager awaiting his release from a correctional facility after serving his time for the murder of a child. The other is the young mother of a child performer, ruthlessly scheming for fame and fortune, and making sure her daughter will do absolutely whatever it takes. The characters are united by a sense of denial, as well as the humanity that can exist behind even the most monstrous abuse. Morris’s controversial and powerful play premiered at the Edinburgh Festival in 2001, and was condemned and acclaimed for tackling the subject of child killers.
