Odyssey

Stranded war hero Odysseus must struggle against the odds to get home to his wife.

But can he battle his way through grumpy gods, naughty nymphs, monocular monsters and over a hundred sleazy suitors? All whilst wearing an Ancient Greek robe that looks suspiciously like a bedsheet?

WHY? The Pantaloons present a hilarious new verse adaptation of the most epic journey of all time

Presented by The Pantaloons.

Instructions for American Servicemen in Britain

  1. A horde of Yankee servicemen have just arrived in England - where the locals speak a strange dialect, boil all their food and talk endlessly about the weather.

The Americans see the Brits as a strange race. Judge for yourself as a crack team of experts attempt to explain the rules of British life.

WHY? Catch this rib-tickling show before it heads to New York for an off-Broadway run!

Presented by Fol Espoir in collaboration with The Real MacGuffins.

The Government Inspector

Presented by Shifting Sands.

The Mayor of a small town is in a cold sweat. News has reached him of an imminent investigation by a high-ranking government official who is travelling incognito – The Government Inspector!

The town’s officials are thrown into a panicked frenzy. They waste no time to cover up the misdirected contracts, misuse of public money, the bribes, fiddled expenses, abuses of office… corruption that has been going on for years!

Matters spiral hysterically out of control when they believe that a stranger in the town is the real Government Inspector.

The Government Inspector written in 1835 by Gogol is an hilarious satire about corruption in a world where, increasingly desperate to hide their wrongdoings and keep the supposed Government Inspector happy, everyone loses their moral compass.

WHY? An updated version Gogol’s classic satire - faithful to the themes of the original. Expect engaging, accessible, exhilarating theatre

NT Live: All My Sons

by Arthur Miller

directed by Jeremy Herrin

Broadcast live from The Old Vic in London, Academy Award-winner Sally Field (Steel Magnolias, Brothers & Sisters) and Bill Pullman (The Sinner, Independence Day) star in Arthur Miller’s blistering drama All My Sons.

America, 1947. Despite hard choices and even harder knocks, Joe and Kate Keller are a success story. They have built a home, raised two sons and established a thriving business.
But nothing lasts forever and their contented lives, already shadowed by the loss of their eldest boy to war, are about to shatter.

With the return of a figure from the past, long buried truths are forced to the surface and the price of their American dream is laid bare.

WHY? Jeremy Herrin (NT Live: This House, People, Places & Things) directs a cast including Jenna Coleman (Victoria), and Colin Morgan (Merlin)

Courtyard Theatre
£15

All My Sons is an Old Vic co-production with Headlong
