Follow Cinderella’s spectacular journey from rags to riches. With the help of her best friend Buttons & Fairy Godmother she shall go to the ball!

Meet Victor and Joan Smiley; Smiley by name, but not by nature. They hate the sight of each other, especially on Sundays, and they could perfectly happily murder their other half. They are in a marriage of inconvenience, the inconvenience being the need to avoid each other to each conduct extramarital shenanigans.

There are plenty of twists along the way, with comedy aplenty that straddles sitcom and something more sinister in a play that puts the sex into Sussex and fun into murder!

“No child or future generation will ever know what this was like, will ever understand”

As a young man, Stephen Wraysford was caught up in an all-consuming love affair in Amiens, France. As the First World War unfolds, Stephen finds himself pulled closer and closer back to Amiens, back to the Valley of the Somme. This is a tale of one man’s quest to understand how far mankind can go and still call itself human.

Birdsong tells a mesmerising and compelling story about courage, love, friendship and loss that is heartbreakingly beautiful, powerful and poignant and commemorates the centenary of the end of World War 1.

This classic, multi award-winning farce by Ray Cooney and John Chapman is set in a London fur salon. Arnold Crouch, one of the two owners, has difficulty keeping everything afloat, while his partner, Gilbert Bodley, is off philandering. Bodley decides to sell his new mistress' husband a fur coat for an extremely low price in order to win her affection, and Crouch is stuck presiding over the deal. The husband decides to give the coat to his own mistress, and all hell breaks out. Mistaken identities and all sorts of problems provides the perfect recipe for this side splitting farce!
