Enter the Dragons

Expect fantastical characters, ridiculous puppetry, extreme wigs, physical comedy and delightfully dark humour. Sixty minutes of laugh-out-loud joy, dissent and touching humility for anyone who is considering ageing.

Enter the Dragons is an hilarious, surreal odyssey through the challenges of growing older, which explodes myths about beauty, sex and femininity.

An archetypal Hero is reframed as a mature woman in the modern world. Gripped with
fear at her advancing years, she sets off on an epic quest to defeat Chronos, the god of time, and halt the inevitable - ageing. Will she succeed?

Written and performed by Abigail Dooley and Emma Edwards

WHY? ‘Abigail Dooley and Emma Edwards are a brilliant comedy coupling: the writing is sharp as a witch’s nose’ Total Theatre

‘Utterly hilarious, simply ingenious’ ★★★★★ Broadway Baby

Branagh Theatre Live: The Winter's Tale

Due to phenomenal demand, The Winter’s Tale, Shakespeare's timeless tragicomedy of obsession and redemption, returns to cinemas this festive season.

This beautifully reimagined production, co-directed by Rob Ashford and Kenneth Branagh, features a remarkable cast including Dame Judi Dench as Paulina, alongside Tom Bateman, Jessie Buckley, Hadley Fraser, Miranda Raison and Sir Kenneth Branagh as Leontes.

King Leontes appears to have everything: power, wealth, a loving family and friends. But sexual jealousy sets in motion a chain of events with tragic consequences…

WHY? This critically acclaimed production was the first in the hugely successful Kenneth Branagh Theatre Company Live season that was broadcast to cinemas from London’s Garrick Theatre over the course of a year in 2015

Hyde and Seek

One performer. Seven characters. 500+ light and sound cues. No technician.

In a long-abandoned theatre, a former stage-doorman, Albert, confesses the untold story of Dr Jekyll... and Mr Hyde.

Electromagnets, projection and 18 domestic, colour-changing lightbulbs, all triggered invisibly by one performer employing a system that would make the average Victorian illusionist gawk. Fast-paced, intimate and lavishly visual storytelling: a vaudevillian ghost story expanding on the world of a gothic classic.

WHY? There will be puppets, there will be songs, there will be technical wizardry and, of course, there will be danger...

Recommended for audiences aged 12+ years.

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.
