SynopsisThe story of the controversial 1960’s playwright Joe Orton and long time lover, collaborator and eventual murderer Kenneth Halliwell. The show takes a close look at the story of Joe and Kenneth, set against a background of the 1960’s social and sexual revolution. Perceived wisdom says that Kenneth was simply jealous of Joe’s success, but others suspect it was more complicated. How much did Kenneth really contribute? Would Joe have been Joe Orton without him? This musical doesn’t offer answers but opens your eyes to other possibilities.

SynopsisWhen mill worker Julie Jordan falls for the masculine charms of Billy Bigelow, a chain of events unravels that suggests their destiny is predetermined by the hand of fate. Set on the New England coastline, against the backdrop of the Great Depression, this musical charts a story of recklessness, regret and redemption, and illuminates the immediacy of Rodgers and Hammerstein’s story; the belief in forgiveness and the power of the human spirit.

Shirley Valentine had her wall and Bill and Lally have their kettles. From the ghosts of kettles past there’s Norma, a kettle from the seventies, city boy kettle Zach from the Millennium, Erika who is simply too modern for words, and Derek, a novelty kettle with a soggy hold on reality. In this tale of a lifetime of love and the many emotional rollercoasters witnessed in a kitchen, join us as we explore what your kettles say about you.

An all-pervasive fear of the future and a guilty pleasure in the excesses of the present drive Mike Bartlett’s play from 1968 to 2525 and back again.

But opposites were proven to attract and a most unlikely romance developed. And now they are back: David more lustful, Amy more cynical, Robert more dangerous, and Linda more romantic than ever!
