She Stoops to Conquer
posterSo there's this wealthy chap, Mr. Hardcastle, who wants his daughter Kate to marry an equally wealthy suitor. Trouble is the suitor is very uncomfortable around upper classes rich folks, so it looks as though Kate will be beyond his reach. However, Kate has a plan – she will pretend to be a servant and so win him for herself – and thus she will “stoop” to the level of a servant to “conquer” her intended. Get the idea? Oliver Goldsmith's comedy may be 240 years old – but which parent today doesn't want their kids to marry well – and which kid today won't do what they can to get what they want?! And of course, when there's money involved...

All My Sons by Arthur Miller
posterThe night that Ann Deever returned to the street where she grew up to visit Chris Keller and his family, a tree in their backyard blows over in a storm. The tree was planted as a memorial to the older Keller son, Larry, a fighter pilot who was lost in World War II. The morning after the storm, family members and neighbours, including the patriarchal father Joe Keller, gather in the yard to reminisce and ultimately the talks turns to old times and of course, Larry. The thread holding the family together unravels revealing a hidden web of moral wrong and sinister crime. All My Sons gave Arthur Miller his first success on Broadway and led to worldwide fame and a glittering career. Miller, a Pulitzer-prize winner, is often cited as one of the greatest American dramatists of the twentieth century.

Treasure Island by Robert Lewis Stephenson
posterSHIP AHOY!!! Are you ready for some swashbuckling high-sea adventure? Do you want to see the good-guys win through? Do you want to boo and hiss the bad-guys into submission? Then you need a good dose of rum-soaked, salty sea dog pirating adventure courtesy of TREASURE ISLAND!! All aboard the good ship Hispañola’ with the ‘stout-hearted honest-types’ young Jack Hawkins, Lady Trelawny and Captain Smollett. But beware of the disreputable and rather smelly crew headed by Long John Silver and his particularly annoying parrot Captain Flint.

Bouncers & Shakers
by John Godber and Jane Thornton
posterOutside the club there’s the bouncers, Lucky Eric, Judd, Ralph and Les. They are your typical tough guys……or are they? Watch as they morph into the many characters trying to get into the club, the stag dos, the hen-nights, the oldest swingers in town, all human life in fact inevitably walks through those doors. Four men playing over twenty characters, man and woman alike. It’s a fast paced, irreverent spotlight on club land. Inside the club, Shakers Cocktail bar is the place to be, to meet boys, to meet girls, to celebrate, to drown your sorrows. Four young waitresses reveal the lives and loves of the staff and customers to hilarious and sometimes poignant effect. Why not join us for a drink or two, providing you’re allowed in that is…..

Boeing-Boeing By Marc Camoletti
posterParis in springtime, the city of love! Trouble is Bernard’s getting too much love for his own good. Forget one girl in every port, Bernard’s got one girl on every plane. Lucky for him he’s got Berthe, a stalwart retainer who is relied upon to organise his several stewardess fiancé so they never find out about each other, but then his friend Robert turns up and, being such a terrible liar, inevitably spoils all Bernard’s fun! Forget the gas bill, don’t worry about work and certainly leave your troubles behind you as you jet off to dizzying heights of hilarious good fun.
