Pinocchio

Visit the incredible world of Stuff and Nonsense as they bring Pinocchio to our stage for Christmas 2024.

Three very funny men seek refuge in a grand but abandoned old house - one of them is Pinocchio and it turns out he’s had quite a life!

Stuff and Nonsense are leaders in family theatre. Their adaptation of Pinocchio combines classic elements of the story – a poor woodcarver, the tell-tale growing nose, the dream of becoming a real boy – with their hallmark hilarity, skilled puppetry, original music, fantastic staging, outstanding performers and extraordinary physical tricks.

'The show was extremely clever and I was very impressed by the fantastic use of staging, which is definitely one of the key elements, along with the lively music, that kept my little boy transfixed throughout' coastalmum.co.uk

Macbeth: Ralph Fiennes & Indira Varma

150 mins

Tony and BAFTA Award winner Ralph Fiennes and Olivier Award winner Indira Varma star in a brand-new ‘full-voltage visceral’ (★★★★ Daily Telegraph) production of William Shakespeare’s Macbeth.

It’s staged like never before and screened from Dock X, a custom-built theatre space in London. This critically acclaimed staging 'quickens the pulse, then goes for the jugular’ (★★★★ Financial Times). It is unmissable on the big screen.

Macbeth is coming. A couple corrupted by their relentless lust for power have blood on their hands.

Witness the gripping tale of greed, murder, deception and superstition. Once you cross the line, you can never turn back.

This cinematic and ‘beautifully staged’ (★★★★ WhatsOnStage) production brings ‘Shakespeare’s tragedy pulsing into the present day’ (★★★★★ The I).

Directed by Simon Godwin (Antony & Cleopatra, Romeo & Juliet, Hansard) with set and costume design by Frankie Bradshaw (Jerusalem, Blues for an Alabama Sky).
