Plays for 2017
A Midsummer Night’s Dream
Four runaway lovers must spend the night in a dark and ominous wood. Meanwhile, in a nearby glade, humble workmen are rehearsing a play. They encounter the parallel universe of fairies, goblins and sprites, where all is not well between the fairy King and Queen, whose quarrel spills over into the mortal world.
The mischievous ‘sorcerer’s apprentice’ Puck is charged with putting matters right with a love potion that makes anyone fall in love with the first person they see. What can possibly go wrong?
This is a traditional Elizabethan production of Shakespeare’s most popular comedy.
Much Ado About Nothing
In Shakespeare’s funniest comedy, battle-weary heroes return from the First World War with their thoughts turning to romance.
Benedick and Beatrice are “horribly in love”; they mock each other, feign disinterest and hurl insults until they are duped into declaring their true feelings.
Meanwhile, the dastardly Don John and his comical sidekicks plot to scupper any romances. Can the incompetent WPC Dogberry and the riotous ladies of ‘the watch’ foil their plans?
From the directors of 2013’s hit The Comedy of Errors, this hilarious production is full of witty love-duelling, comic villains and crazy chases.
The hilarious trials and tribulations of bombastic boot-shop owner Henry Horatio Hobson and his three uppity daughters in 1880’s Salford.
When Hobson teases his eldest, and most headstrong, daughter Maggie about being past the marrying age, she promptly retaliates by marrying his best boot-hand, Willie Mossop, and setting up a rival shop. Hobson’s future looks uncertain. As a battle of wills ensues between father and daughter, can the hapless Willie triumph?
This timeless tale never fails to amuse and entertain in equal measure.
