Mike Bartlett’s epic rollercoaster of a play takes us from the
swinging London of 1968 to a future London of 2525 - and back
again! It’s a crazy time travel journey that presents us with a
metropolitan clash of people, scenes and decades. A whirlwind
that will leave you amazed and emotionally drained. Very Big Spirit!
‘Full of ideas and invention, this demented carnival confirms Bartlett as the most exciting writer of the decade’ Evening Standard

Christmas, the most wonderful time of the year… well it is for everyone except the miserable miserly Scrooge who has no time for friends or fun.
Bah, humbug! But one dark, cold Christmas Eve, Scrooge is paid a visit by the ghost of Marley, his former business partner, who tells him that he will be visited by three spirits, each of whom will take him on a magical journey to reveal the error of his ways.
Can Scrooge really change in time and discover the true meaning of Christmas?
A Christmas Carol is a breathless and exciting journey through the darkest night of Scrooge’s life and its brightest dawn- Christmas Day.

***SPECIAL OPENING NIGHT OFFER - FREE GLASS OF WINE!***
***THURSDAY EVENING - POST-SHOW CHAT with THE CAST & CREW***
Adam meets Grace in a club, they chat, they dance, they snog, they go back to hers.
Earlier in the day we see Adam at home with his girlfriend Ruth, as she discusses the future, the flat, a life together and irons his new shirt; with Adam not interested, furtively texting and making excuses for why he won't be back tonight.
In parts funny, bleak, unsettling and thoughtful, the play examines what it is be in your twenties, lonely, hollow and uncertain.
A critically acclaimed play on its debut in 2012.
NEW THIS SEASON!: A new addition this season will be a chance to meet with the cast and production crew of all our Studio productions to find out more about the play, the characters and share your thoughts directly. All Thursday night audiences will be invited to stay behind after the show finishes to meet with the actors and director. A great chance to find out more about the production.
