The Man who Left is not The Man who Came Home

An inspiring play based on real stories exploring the impact of going to and returning from war on the families of the armed forces.

It is the result of over a hundred interviews with soldiers and soldiers’ wives. The drama is interlaced with a live, true account from military wife Sam Campbell-Coombe.

WHY? A story of resilience, of hope, of change – of what it’s like when the man you love is going to war and might not come back

Jeeves and Wooster in Perfect Nonsense

A new play adapted from the works of P G Wodehouse 

Written by the Goodale Brothers 

Take your seats with caution! 

Aristocratic buffoon Bertie Wooster has hired the theatre for the night to present his one man show detailing a recent and rather spontaneous series of misadventures, including the theft of a novelty cow creamer and a narrow escape from unwanted matrimony.

The only trouble is Bertie hasn't worked out who's going to play the parts. Will the show be a disaster? Will the scenery stay upright? Or will his trusty manservant Jeeves step in and save the day?

'I have to say I’m finding this acting business rather easy Jeeves! Apart from having to do a newt impression, I think that went tremendously well.'

In a joyous reimagining of the classic P G Wodehouse characters, three actors hurl themselves from role to role as they race to tell the story of Bertie's own farcical adventures.

Jeeves and Wooster in Perfect Nonsense was created by the Goodale Brothers, adapted primarily from P G Wodehouse The Code of the Woosters. After hugely successful runs in the West End, it won the 2014 Olivier Award for Best New Comedy.

Choice Grenfell

In these somewhat uncertain times comes a wonderful evening of warmth, wit and gentle humour.

The best of Joyce’s hilarious songs and monologues from Stately As A Galleon and Free Activity Period to A Terrible Worrier and First Flight.

Joyce is our guide for a delightful delve into some of her most endearing characters, ably accompanied by her trusted pianist William Blezard.

As Joyce would have said “We request the pleasure of your company” in the company of one of Britain’s best loved comediennes.

The family of William Blezard (Joyce’s musical director and pianist) have also given permission for us to use material from previously unheard rehearsal tape recordings and personal letters sent from Joyce to William.

WHY? The show will provide a completely unique view into the life of Joyce Grenfell through the eyes of her well respected friend, William Blezard
