Hobson's Choice

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.

Let The Right One In

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...

Nothing10 - 17 Feb


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.

And Then There Were None3 - 10 Mar

And Then There Were None

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.
