SynopsisWhy did American Jews find such success in the world of entertainment? Because they arrived in America in the late nineteenth century with nothing but a gift to peddle. And what better to peddle than a song, a dance or a comic routine. This show explores a century of song, dance and comedy with a nod to some legendary performers such as Barbra Streisand, Al Jolson, Bette Midler, Sophie Tucker, Fanny Brice, Zero Mostel and Groucho Marx. Song writers include Burt Bacharach.

SynopsisLong-term psychiatric patient Ruth has read Wuthering Heights forty-nine times and is the star of the Therapy Unit’s poetry workshop. As she nurses her teddy-bear, Heathcliffe, in a psychiatric hospital in York, she recalls her former life in a ward in Bridlington, and her doomed affair with Bernard Whittaker, a thirty-seven year-old fellow patient from Leeds. Ten, (or is it twenty?) years earlier, Bernard is obsessed with anti-submarine warfare in WW1 and hallucinates that he is being visited by a young German submariner called Wulf, who keeps trying to persuade him to join him on his U-boat. Bernard is very tempted but is constantly drawn back by his deep attachment to the hospital cuisine.

SynopsisMcQUEEN is a journey into the visionary imagination and dark dream world of Alexander McQueen, fashion's greatest contemporary artist. Set on a single London night, it is more than a bio-play. It is stepping into the fairy story landscape of McQueen's mind, the landscape seen in his immortal shows, where with a dress an urchin can become an Amazon, where beauty might just help us survive the night. A girl has watched McQueen's Mayfair house for eleven consecutive days. Tonight she climbs down from her watching tree and breaks into his house, to steal a dress, to become someone special. He catches her, but, instead of calling the police, they embark together on a journey through London and into his heart.

SynopsisWhen Gerry Stratton plans a family meal out with his two grown up sons to celebrate his wife Laura’s 54th birthday and proposes an almost prophetic toast to ‘happy times’, he has no idea of the events that will unfold over the course of that evening. Their elder son, Glyn, is now back together with his long-suffering wife Stephanie, and their younger son, Adam has brought along his new girlfriend, an outrageous hairdresser, to meet the Stratton family for the first time.
Family skeletons intrude on cheerful domesticity as we get a glimpse of Glyn and Stephanie’s story unfolding in the future. Meanwhile at another table in the same restaurant, Adam and Maureen’s story is ingeniously played out in reverse chronology, with Gerry and Laura remaining in the present time unpicking their marriage and recalling first love. Time of My Life springs several surprises.

SynopsisVesta Tilley was a pioneering star, whose celebrated act as a male impersonator made her one of the most popular and highly paid variety performers of her generation. Her taboo-busting routine was loved by both men and women in the reserved society of Edwardian Britain. When World War One broke out, her much-loved musical act played a crucial role in military recruitment and she was nicknamed ‘Britain’s Best Recruitment Sergeant’.

SynopsisIt's 1971. Michael Dork may be a computer geek but he's invented something that could change the world. He's also discovered girls: a prospect (almost) as exciting as his love of binary. Holly is the girl: she has looks and brains and wants to be the first woman in space - well, this is 1971! But will she want Michael? Michael and his sci-fi obsessed, social-misfit friends, Lucas, Francis and Marvin are all set to change the course of history, fashion and dating - in no particular order, but just as soon as possible, especially the dating bit.

Her rags-to-riches-to-rags-again story takes her through five husbands, expensive sports cars, fur coats, and jewelry, a battle with alcohol, and bankruptcy as, unable to cope with her newfound wealth and fame, she rapidly spirals downward.
