Merry Widow
by Franz Lehar

Merry Widow has been holding audiences spellbound since its premiere in 1905.

This is the English version by Christopher Hassall and brings a wealth of romance and comedy easily identifiable to modern performers and audiences alike.

Be My Baby

Be My Baby
written by Amanda Whittington
directed by Vivien Kerr


The setting is a Mother and Baby home in 1964 and the lives of 4 young, unmarried, pregnant women are unpicked and viewed both sympathetically and with humour.

Set before the introduction and availability of the contraceptive pill, the Mother and Baby Home was the only other alternative to a shotgun wedding and possibly years of an unhappy marriage.

The play shows how Mary, forced into the home by her mother in order to keep up appearances, faces the shame of her pregnancy and the gradual realisation that she will not be taking the baby home.

Whilst the outcome for all the young women is all too predictable, involving loss and bereavement their acceptance of the situation and their resilience is a recurring theme.

Whether you are old or young, male or female, married or not, you will find the play funny, sad but most of all immensely touching.

NB: Free wine offer only available on Weds night. Alternative soft drink will be available.

Waiting for Godot

Waiting for Godot
written by Samuel Beckett
directed by Martyn Jolly

Act 1 - Two characters, wait endlessly and in vain for the arrival of Godot. During their wait they converse on everything and nothing. Pozzo and Lucky entertain them. A boy arrives and tells them Godot will not be coming today.

Act 2 - The next day. The same. But different.

This play has variously been described as "A play where nothing happens. Twice." and "The most significant play in the English language."

Becket's text is rich with themes of truth, consciousness, time and religion. A classic not to be missed.
