    Snakes and Ladders

    10/02/17 to 4/03/17 MORE
    play poster Playing Games is a Dangerous Occupation!

    Families are difficult. Retired sisters, Charlie and Emily, are having a quiet Sunday evening at home reading the latest ‘Aga saga’ and tussling with the cryptic crossword. Suddenly Charlie’s daughter Beth arrives. She’s left her husband and comes home to Mum for support. Her unexpected arrival and need for comfort triggers quite a bit of soul searching for the family.
    Beth’s need to dig around in the past, remembering happier times, also brings out some things that should, perhaps, have best been forgotten. A cosy night spent playing a seemingly innocent game of Snakes and Ladders, with a glass or two of wine, reveals a tension between the siblings..

    Love Me Slender

    21/04/17 to 13/05/17 MORE
    play poster A Comedy

    Remember girls - not slim for today. Not slim for tomorrow. But slim for life! With these words, Siobhan, the achiever of the Year inspires her hopeful new recruits in the Slim for Life dieting club. Siobhan has lost seven stone, found a new self, a fulfilling job and a wonderful husband. Armed with these she encourages others to achieve the same through a combination of diet and personal philosophy. Five stages - commitment, discipline, sacrifice, realisation and salvation - for the key to a new life.
    Can Jean, Claudette, Rosie and the rest win the fight with flab? The determination to succeed comes with a price and one not everyone is willing to pay. When the temptation rises and the motivation begins to wane, the edges begin to unravel in the face of Siobhan's autocratic rule. Just how much is the price worth paying? A satisfyingly humane and perceptive play that memorably nails one of the great issues of our times [Daily Telegraph].

    Is a retelling of the children's classic by Roald Dahl. It is the story of a young boy whose parent's die tragically and is sent to live with his two revolting aunts, but Magic is afoot and he escapes an abusive home in a Giant Peach.

    Along the way, through trials and tribulations and creative problem solving, he makes new friends, and discovers the joys of freedom and friendship, which had previously been alien ideas to him.

    All's well that ends well and the unusual band of travelers find themselves a new start in the City of New York!
