SynopsisFollows the complex lives of five writers of a TV medical soap opera called Heart of Hearts. Interspersed between the editorial room scenes are scenes from Heart of Hearts itself - with the writers (whose own interpersonal relationships, it becomes apparent, are not what they seem) taking the roles of their soap opera alter egos. As they play out the increasingly ludicrous stories, it is evident that the lines between art and life are blurred almost beyond recognition.

He's on the verge of a massive promotion at one of the Big Six energy companies. His wife Serena has worked hard too, and now dreams of a bigger house, a slimmer body, a happier life.

SynopsisUnder an agreement between the British and Australian Governments, between 1945 and 1968, over three thousand British children were told they were orphans and sent to Australia on a promise of warmth, fresh air, abundant food and boundless opportunity. Instead they arrived to deprived institutions where neglect and abuse were the norm. Tom Holloway's new play unearths a secret buried by time that, in turn, exposes a world of historical injustices currently in the limelight.

An impeccably dressed man shares a cell with a vagrant who wishes to make his acquaintance while they wait to see a judge. Their careless banter quickly turns to accusation and brutal assumptions about how the other half lives, witnessed by a guard who takes perverse pleasure in the tensions that escalate between the two men. A nightmarish world of past crimes and misdemeanours unfolds when the court closes and the men realise they are locked in for the night.

SynopsisOn the 12 December 1940, more than six hundred people lost their lives in over seven hours of continuous bombing by Germany's Luftwaffe. Their objective? Wiping Sheffield’s world famous steel works - the heartland of Britain’s munitions manufacturing - clean off the map. The ruthless attack left Sheffield in ruins – destroying families, shattering a way of life, and changing the city forever. At 11.44pm on the night of the raid, a single bomb reduced the Marples Hotel, which stood proudly in Fitzalan Square, from seven storeys to just fifteen feet of rubble. Only one of the ten compartments in the hotel’s cellars withstood the blast. Within it, trapped, were four men. This is their story, from beginning to end...

SynopsisIn a city buckling under the weight of a severe housing crisis, Ben and Asma have discovered a borough of London they can finally call their home. However, with its earthy character and village feel, it isn’t long before this hidden gem soon becomes the prime location for every other trendy urbanite in the city. As they find themselves under siege from a brutal wave of gentrification, powerless to stop the many charms that had attracted them to the area from being erased, Ben and Asma reach out to the local community for support, but start to question whether or not the damage has already been done.

SynopsisExperience close-up magic like never before in a show featuring the finest sleight of hand and indulge in the style and opulance of the Victorian masters of magic. At the turn of the 1900's London was full of magicians like the Great Harry Houdini, and the upper classes enjoyed dazzling sleight of hand in the comfort of their own homes. Witness the strange and the bizarre as objects disappear and the spirits write messages from 'the other side'. This will be a night to remember - an evening with a difference ...
