The Deep Blue Sea by Terence Rattigan

directed by Pat Boxall

Book tickets now

Hester Collyer is found by her neighbours in the aftermath of a failed suicide attempt. The story of her tempestuous affair with a wartime fighter pilot and the breakdown of her marriage to a High Court Judge begins to emerge - with it comes a portrait of need, loneliness and long repressed passion.

Terence Rattigan’s 1950’s masterpiece is an unforgettably moving portrayal of the destructive power of love and the emotional turmoil of a woman who has dared to challenge the stifling and unforgiving morality of post war British society.

Friday 31 March - Saturday 01 April

Bloody Lies & Teen Twister

A New Venture Youth Theatre production

Book tickets now

'Bloody Lies' is a tense crime drama featuring love, affairs of the heart, deceit, trauma and ultimately murder. James Long finds himself accused of bludgeoning to death the woman he has been having an affair with. Tormented by guilt and loss of memory has he been wrongly convicted? Can any of the characters be trusted?

'Teen Twister' is a light-hearted response to the question, 'what is it like being a teenager in 2017?' Witness their concerns, stereotypes, contemporary pressures all re-imagined with a sense of play and humour.

Friday 21 April - Saturday 29 April

Hughie by Eugene O'Neill

directed by Dan Walker

New York is on the cusp of the Great Depression; in its seedy underbelly, small-time gambler Erie is crawling back into his hotel after days of drunken mourning. The Night-Clerk would rather be somewhere – and someone – else, but to his horror he finds that Erie has many tales to tell about his lost buddy. ‘Hughie’ is Eugene O'Neill's completely honest exploration of a friendship between two people, one of whom is an inveterate liar, and the struggle to make new connections when we feel alone.

The Real Inspector Hound by Tom Stoppard

directed by Mary Allen

The Real Inspector Hound is a wildly funny, surreal comedy.  The action is set in a theatre, where it’s the first night of an Agatha Christie-style whodunit. The play is watched by two critics, who make ponderous - and very funny - pronouncements about it.  A character is killed.  Inspector Hound comes onstage to try and solve the mystery.  Gradually the critics are drawn into the action, with catastrophic consequences.  Only at the end do we learn who is the Real Inspector Hound.
