Glorious!

Glorious!

Glorious! is based on the life of Florence Foster Jenkins, the legendary New York heiress and socialite who wanted to be a great operatic diva despite having one of the worst singing voices in history, and who used all her money, charm and unstoppable willpower to make it happen. The soprano voice she heard in her head was beautiful and pure and it never occurred to her that this was not the sound issuing from her mouth…. A heart-warming play for music-lovers and those who are tone-deaf alike.

The Wonder Dish (2017)

The Wonder Dish (2017)

St Albans-based John Mole is one of the country’s leading poets writing for adults and children with equal brio and allure. With over a dozen anthologies in print Mole’s work is by turn dramatic, lyrical and humorous but always penetrating at a time when such literary virtues are frequently rare. Mole’s insights into the hopes, fears, foibles, joys and sorrows of modern life are both an uplifting celebration and searing indictment of the worlds in which we live.

Handbagged

Handbagged

The monarch, Liz, and her most powerful subject, Maggie: two enduring icons born six months apart. One destined to rule, the other elected to lead. But when the stiff upper lip softened and the gloves came off, which one had the upper hand?


Olivier Award-winning Handbagged is the ‘wickedly funny’ (Evening Standard) new play that opens the clasp on the relationship between two giants of the 20th century. Moira Buffini’s ‘irresistibly mischievous’ (The Independent) comedy speculates on that most provocative of questions: what did the world’s two most powerful women talk about behind closed palace doors?

84 Charing Cross Road

84 Charing Cross Road

This enchanting play is a dramatisation of letters between a writer in New York and an antiquarian bookshop in London. Unfolding over 20 years, the story begins just after the Second World War when struggling writer Helene Hanff contacts Marks & Co, the eponymous bookstore at 84, Charing Cross Road. Frank Doel is the delightfully dusty supplier who seeks to fulfil Helene’ s voracious literary appetite. Despite their transatlantic separation – and Hanff’ s irascibility and sarcastic wit – the couple develop an unlikely close relationship and bond through their letters and a shared love of literature.

Bronte

Bronte

Brontë explores how three Victorian sisters, isolated on the Yorkshire moors, came to write some of the most powerful and passionate fiction of all time.


We see the real and imagined worlds of the three Brontë sisters as the play moves seamlessly from the kitchen table to the wild moors. The fictional characters they have created come to haunt the sisters as they cope with their father’s poor health, and their brother’s painful descent into an alcohol-infused insanity. Time, reality and the imagination merge in an unconventional structure that encourages a brave, creative approach to production.

Nell Gwynn

Nell Gwynn

Michal Billington described this play as a love letter to the theatre and the cheerful chaos of putting on a play. The central character is Nell, orange-seller to celebrated actress, who negotiated a good sum for herself to become the mistress of King Charles II. Nell Gwynn is a backstage tour from the heaven of Restoration London, with a mixture of bawdy humour, erotic delights and energetically sensual song and dance.

Arcadia

Arcadia

In a large country house in Derbyshire in April 1809 sits Lady Thomasina Coverly and her tutor, Septimus Hodge. Through the window may be seen some of the ‘500 acres inclusive of lake’ where Capability Brown’s idealised landscape is about to give way to the picturesque Gothic style: ‘everything but vampires’, as the garden historian Hannah Jarvis remarks to Bernard Nightingale when they stand in the same room 180 years later. Bernard has arrived to uncover the scandal which is said to have taken place when Lord Byron stayed at Sidley Park.


Tom Stoppard’s absorbing play takes us back and forth between the centuries and explores the nature of truth and time, the difference between the Classical and the Romantic temperament, and the disruptive influence of sex on our orbits in life –‘the attraction which Newton left out’.

Pygmalion

Pygmalion

Professor of phonetics, Henry Higgins, makes a bet that he can train a bedraggled Cockney flower girl, Eliza Doolittle, to pass for a Duchess at an ambassador’s garden party by teaching her to assume a veneer of gentility, the most important element of which, he believes, is impeccable speech. She conquers not only the voice and behaviour patterns that Higgins is teaching her, but also the heart of a young aristocrat. Pygmalion is a sharp lampoon of the rigid British system of the day and a commentary on women’s independence.
