Troubled Times

Troubled Times

by Peter Sinclair, adapted by Steve Atkins

18-21 May 2016

A personal history of Ireland, in song, drama and images.

World Premiere! 

Told simply and directly by musicians, actors and narrators in short scenes with live music, this is a broad history of Ireland from the 1800's to the present day by author, song writer and singer Peter Sinclair. Peter was brought up and schooled in Dublin during the 1950's and 60's, so he's seen and heard a lot of Ireland's history in person and through the words of his forebears. 

Peppered with Irish wit and humour, and featuring Peter's own songs as well as some favourites from the Emerald Isle, this is a celebration of the Irish journey 

Performances start at 7.45pm
Tickets £10 - Charity event in aid of Parkinson's UK


Rough Crossing 

by Tom Stoppard from an original play by Ferenc Molnar 

14-18 June 2016

Whitehall farce meets Flying Down to Rio by way of Cole Porter's Anything Goes in this stylish European '30s comedy.

Set on board an ocean liner, 'Rough Crossing' follows two playwrights trying to get a show together during the crossing, and their frantic attempts to preserve (with the assistance of an unorthodox and all-knowing cabin steward) the relationship of their composer and his love, their leading lady, despite the interference of a lothario actor. 'Rough Crossing' is brimful of Tom Stoppard's trademark rapier wit and wordplay. 

Box Office 07939 210121
£10.00 & £8.00 (concessions) balcony £5.00 

Performance 7.45pm
