The Father


by Florian Zeller


directed by Mary Allen


Book Tickets Now


The Father is about Andre, a man with dementia, wrestling to control or even understand his daily life. It is an acute, funny and ultimately distressing portrait of the condition. The audience shares Andre's uncertainty about his multiple confusions. Is the action taking place in his flat, or that of his daughter Anne? Is Anne about to abandon him to live in London with a new lover, or does she remain in Paris, taking her dad to live with her? And indeed who is Anne? How is Anne is going to look after her increasingly frail father? He saw off the previous carer and says he doesn't need anyone to look after him. A new carer arrives, but will he even recognise them since he fails to even recognise his own daughter? Will Anne find a solution that works for her, her husband and for Andre?


This amateur production of 'The Father' is presented by special arrangement with SAMUEL FRENCH, LTD.

Pickwick and Weller


by Barry Purchese


(& Charles Dickens!)


music by Michael James


directed by Rod Lewis

Samuel Pickwick is a warm hearted and well meaning man of advancing years but, despite his age, still something of an innocent. As he sets forth on his adventures into the wider world he is easy pickings for rogues such as Alfred Jingle and the rascally lawyers Dodson and Fogg. He is in need of a protector and no-one comes better qualified than the street wise Sam Weller. Sam, with his singular brand of philosophy, never fails to make us laugh as he comes to the rescue of Pickwick time and again.

Hysteria Poster medium




by Terry Johnson


directed by Bob Ryder


Buy Your Tickets Now


Real life, fantasy and hallucination.

Freud meets Dali, meets half-naked comedy chaos.

Serious stuff is swept up in the crazy world of theatrical farce.

Terry Johnson’s brilliant creation achieves a rare balancing act, in which alarming subjects and events are filtered through high-jinks comedy entertainment. It’s a play that’s always sparkling and witty, while sometimes descending into low farce, while somehow still being thought-provoking and deeply touching.

It’s a modern classic and a great experience, which makes you laugh, think and feel - often all at the same time.


This amateur production of 'Hysteria' is presented by special arrangement with SAMUEL FRENCH, LTD.
