Black Coffee
by Agatha Christie
poster Prepare to test your little grey cells as Hercule Poirot takes to the stage in the only play Agatha Christie ever wrote about her famous Belgian sleuth!
When Sir Claud Amory’s formula for a powerful new explosive is stolen, the inventor suspects the thief is among the guests staying in his country house. With all the suspects assembled in one room Sir Claud locks the doors and turns off the lights to allow the thief chance to return the formula anonymously. But the darkness brings murder instead – and it is up to Hercule Poirot and his faithful sidekick Hastings to unravel a tangled plot of deception and prevent a further killing!

The Witches
by Roald Dahl
poster Witches detest children. To a witch, a child smells like dogs’ droppings! And now the Grand High Witch is planning to get rid of every child in England. Only a brave young boy and his Norwegian grandmother can stop them as they go into battle against the child-hating Witches! The play is based on Raold Dahl’s highly successful children’s book, in which the evil witches look deceptively like human women – except for their bald heads which they disguise with wigs, clawed hands that they cover with gloves, and toeless feet that makes it extremely painful for them when they wear pretty shoes! Dare you face the Witches? If you are scared, bring a child with you! Great entertainment for all the family. There will be matinee performances on Saturday 10th and Sunday 11th December.

Wuthering Heights
by Emily Bronte (adapted by Charles Vance)
poster The wilds of the Yorkshire Moors are brought vividly to life in this stage adaptation of Emily Bronte’s classic novel of romance and revenge. Heathcliff is the remote and mysterious gypsy-like hero who rises in his adopted family and is then reduced to the status of a servant. When the young woman he loves marries another he flees the Moors. Later he returns, now rich and educated, with the intention of seeking his revenge on those he believes ruined his life. Emily Bronte’s only novel was published in 1847 and has since inspired many adaptations. The story’s sweeping mystery and romance now comes to Dudley Little Theatre’s stage!

Bedroom Farce
by Alan Ayckbourne
poster A play that is set in three bedrooms, all on stage at the same time! The bedrooms belong to three couples – Ernest and Delia, Trevor and Susannah and Nick and Jan. The intertwined intricacies of their lives unwind in each of the bedrooms – the doubts, the jealousies, the misgivings, the love and the anger - and each character touches the lives of the others in some way. This hilarious comedy, almost literally a bedroom farce, has a bitter-sweet twist that only Alan Ayckbourn could achieve.
