It’s a few years since the events of Boeing Boeing and lothario Bernard has married his Italian Air Stewardess girlfriend, Gabriella, and finally settled down… or has he? A telephone call from an agency to advise that the 'girl' will be arriving shortly raises Gabriella's suspicions, so of course she cancels her plans to go and visit her mother for the weekend.
Cue an evening of mistaken identities as Bernard's old good friend, Robert, turns up and mixes up Bernard's mistress and the hired agency cook!
Who the hell says 'ergo'? Whilst breaking into someone's flat?
What kind of person does that?
Alex, an introverted amateur collector who “likes things ordered and alphabetised and preferably laminated”, and Juliet, an impetuous whirlwind of a woman with a questionable history of past relationships, move into a flat they each think they’re renting alone... This chic, fast moving, extremely funny play is a modern metropolitan guide to falling in (and out) of love.
Meet three couples in their three kitchens on the Christmas Eves of three successive years. The "lower class" but very much up and coming Hopcrofts are in their bright new, gadget filled kitchen anxiously giving a little party for their bank manager and his wife and an architect neighbor. Next there are the architect and his wife in their neglected, untidy flat. Then the bank manager and his wife are in their large, slightly modernized, old Victorian style kitchen. Running like a dark thread through the wild comedy of behind the scenes disasters at Christmas parties is the story of the advance of the Hopcrofts to material prosperity and independence and the decline of the others.
You Can’t Take it With You
At first the Sycamore family seem quite mad, but it is not long before we realise that if they are mad, the rest of the world is even madder. In contrast to the Sycamores are the stuffy and snobbish Kirbys. The play tells how Tony, the attractive young son of the hugely wealthy Kirbys, falls in love with Alice Sycamore. The Kirbys have been invited to dinner to meet the Alice’s family, and much to her dismay they duly arrive… on the wrong night.
The Magical Voyage of Ullysses
Troy has fallen ... The captains and the kings depart, some like Nestor to a happy homecoming, others like Agamemnon to a bloody one. Ulysses is condemned to ten years exile for offending the gods during the siege. The story of his wanderings is well known from Homer's Odyssey, here providing a marvellous stimulant to the youthful imagination.
Join Captain Tempest and his fearless crew on their journey into hyperspace… and beyond! This musical bursts with red hot rock and roll hits, including Great Balls of Fire, Good Vibrations, Teenager in Love, The Young Onesand The Monster Mash.
So fasten your seat belts, set your ray guns to stun and get ready for a cosmic adventure of meteoric proportions! Bob Carlton’s smash hit West End musical takes the 1956 film, with plot taken from Shakespeare’s The Tempest, raids the Bard’s other plays at will (and not always absolutely verbatim) and sets it to a score of great pop hits from the 1960s and 70s including: Heard it Through the Grapevine, Young Girl, Good Vibrations, Gloria and many more.
The powerful debut play from Alexi Kaye Campbell, winner of an Olivier Award, the Critics' Circle Award for Most Promising Playwright, and the John Whiting Award for Best New Play.
Alternating between 1959 and 2019, The Pride examines changing attitudes to sexuality, looking at intimacy, identity and the courage it takes to be who you really are. The 1959 Philip is in love with Oliver, but married to Sylvia. The 2019 Oliver is addicted to sex with strangers. Sylvia loves them both.
Contains some sexual scenes and a small amount of nudity.
“Do not forget that nothing stands forever…” Mary Stuart is imprisoned in England. Elizabeth I hesitates over the signing of the death warrant that will end her life. A disastrous meeting is arranged between the two women leading to the last days of Mary Stuart and, finally, her elevation as a martyr.
The meeting never happened but, as Goethe said, “It will be good to see those two whores alongside each other”. Schiller's Mary redeems her youthful crimes through an ordeal that lifts her into realms of spiritual serenity, while Elizabeth descends deeper into rage, revenge and deception.
Oswald’s striking new adaptation, written in a mix of prose and poetry, brings to life this imagined meeting and explores the characters of two of history’s most iconic figures.
George Eliot's classic story of loss, tragedy and the relentless nature of fate. Outgrowing, but still hopelessly devoted to her family, our protagonist Maggie, befriends the disfigured Phillip Wakem, son of a local lawyer. But their fathers become embroiled in a bitter legal dispute that only the prosperous Wakem can win, and the Tullivers find fate dealing them the first harsh hand of many. With their father dead, the family must face up to their cold future together.
Comment is Free
A journalist forms the centre of a devastating media storm in this urgent, gripping and innovative play. A fiercely current, socially relevant and dramatic depiction of free speech and mob mentality. A skillfully crafted cacophony of voices, the script uses social media as a powerful and contemporary means of comment.
A story of a man, obsessed by trout fishing, who takes his girlfriend to his cabin for a holiday to declare his love for her, but it soon becomes apparent she isn’t the first woman he has done this with. A curious play questioning true love, loneliness and isolation.
