Deep in the bowels of a tabloid newspaper office, the clock is ticking with only an hour left before the presses have to roll... Damages is a witty and contemporary (im)morality tale of power-hungry hacks, suicidal sub-editors, and razor-sharp lawyers all trying to put the past and the paper to bed.

Wednesday 19 - Saturday 29 March 2014
Stoppard's deliriously funny play is an affectionate tribute to the Golden Age of sophisticated comedy. With jokes that would have delighted Coward, and songs that Irving Berlin might have penned, Rough Crossing is a feast of verbal wit, physical comedy, and sheer theatrical virtuosity.
Wednesday 07 - Saturday 17 May 2014
A Tomb with a View is a popular, fast-moving, gothic comedy triller by Norman Robbins. With laughs and dead bodies in profusion, this play is suitable for all over the age of 10 years. As the play opens, a wolf howls to the moon. In the Library, Hamilton Penworthy, solicitor, reads the will of the late-departed Septimus Tomb. Who will survive to inherit the millions? The plot twists and turns to its surprising conclusion. A comedy not to miss!

At the outbreak of war in 1914, the 700 strong local battalion from Accrington, Lancashire marched off optimistically in response to Lord Kitchener's call – Your Country Needs YOU! Peter Whelan's powerful and poignant play is based on this fact and the effect the war had on the men at the front and on the women left behind.
Wednesday 05 - Saturday 15 November 2014
A sweet little old lady, alone in her house, is pitted against a gang of criminal misfits who will stop at nothing. With only her parrot, General Gordon, to help her, Mrs Wilberforce is alone with five desperate men - but who will be forced to face the music? A play both macabre and hilariously funny, this is definitely not one to be missed!
