SynopsisOnce upon a time, a slave boy called Cinders lived with his murderous stepmother and her daughters in a little landlocked kingdom. Now although this kingdom lacked democracy and had been banned from Eurovision on behavioural grounds, it boasted a prince whose balls were the envy of the world. Indeed, there was no happier sight in all the kingdom than the prince’s balls in full swing. The Prince took great pleasure and care in arranging his balls, which he liked to hold in all the fine rooms of the castle. And Cinders really fancied the Prince. But they would never meet… would they?

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...

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.

SynopsisTHE PRICE OF COAL by Harold Brighouse
1909. The mines. Collier Jack Tyldesley heads off at 5.30am for another day's hard graft at the coalface. His lover, Mary Bradshaw, has promised to answer his marriage proposal when he returns home, but Jack's mother is haunted by premonitions of disaster. Risk is part of the job, but too often the cost of fuel outweighs the cost of the lives of men.
LONESOME LIKE by Harold Brighouse
1911. The mill. Sarah Ormerod has worked in a Lancashire mill for many years, but age and hard work have taken their toll. When she loses the use of her hands, she is condemned to spend the rest of her days in the workhouse, unless someone can help her. Without a welfare state, what happens to the elderly and disabled?
THE OLD TESTAMENT AND THE NEW by Stanley Houghton
1914. The home. Christopher Battersby is a devout Christian, running his household in strict and obsessive accordance with the Old Testament. When his daughter runs off to London with an unsuitable man, he struggles with his faith and the limits of what he can forgive.
NIGHT WATCHES by Allan Monkhouse
1916. The trenches. A new orderly begins work on the night shift at a Red Cross hospital, only to find that two of the patients are more comically surprising and disruptive that originally seemed.

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 ...
