An extraordinary set of circumstances finds Lady Anna, a woman of aristocratic birth, in love with a radical tailor’s son. The weight of the Victorian establishment closes its ranks against the match.

But something’s about to change as the jukebox brings colour and excitement to Southend, Soho and Hornchurch! Johnny Hamlet, a young national serviceman, comes home for his father's funeral to find his mother Gertie has been carrying on with Uncle Claud. Subsequently, his father’s ghost appears, trying to persuade him that he’s been murdered by the pair and that Johnny should settle the score. Will Johnny avenge his father with murderous intent? Or will he absorb himself in the rock ‘n’ roll?

SynopsisFragile as magnolias and as tough as steel, six women share laughter through tears, strength through adversity and tolerance through friendship…..whilst changing hairstyles, swapping recipes and dealing with heartache. Set in a Louisiana beauty salon in the 1980s, this inspiring play shows that extraordinary experiences exist within ordinary lives, and takes us on a rollercoaster ride through day-to-day conversations, emotions and the circle of life. Beautician Truvy’s regulars include the town stalwart M'Lynn and her fragile daughter Shelby, new-in-town shy girl Annelle, curmudgeonly Ouiser and former first lady Clairee. They are thrown together in pursuit of looking their best, and they form supportive friendships and strong bonds that will see them through births, deaths and marriages. When severely tested, the women show their steel-like strength, supporting each other as the darkest hours descend.

Gigi is the next generation of a family of courtesans. Her grandmother and Aunt Alicia, the family matriarch, are determined that Gigi succeed where her mother failed. When Gaston notices more about Gigi than her eagerness to play cards, aunt and grandmother set their sights on an arrangement. Gigi has other ideas about her future. Will she prove as adept at romance as at cards?

SynopsisBenjamin won't do swimming at school. His mum thinks he's on drugs or has body issues. But Benjamin has found God and mixed-sex swimming lessons offend him. So begins the teenager's journey towards religious extremism. The school wishes to accommodate all faiths but when will they recognise the threat that his religious belief has on their own liberal ethos? As Benjamin terrorises the staff and fellow students alike, only one teacher is prepared to take a stand. How far is she willing to go and what will she risk to defend her own deeply held convictions?

SynopsisFollows recently paroled convict Percy Talbott, who is looking for somewhere to start over, and rural Gilead, Wisconsin, seems just the place. She takes a job at the Spitfire Grill, a crumbling diner where the townsfolk congregate and gossip, run by a feisty widow named Hannah. Hannah has been trying to sell the diner to escape from the painful memories it holds, but the property has been on the market for a decade with no takers. Soon, Percy hatches a plan to hold a raffle for ownership of the Spitfire Grill—for one hundred dollars and an essay about why they might want the Grill, anyone can enter the contest. As the seasons change and rumours about her past build, the contest entries begin to roll in, and Percy starts to realize that she's not the only person in Gilead with a history.

SynopsisThe story of Rock Star Conrad Birdie who is the biggest artist to top the charts. Women love him, men want to be him and teenage girls around the country scream with glee at the mere mention of his name. But when the United States Army drafts Birdie, manager Albert Peterson sees his meal ticket preparing to fly the coop, much to the delight of longtime love Rose Alvarez, who can’t wait for Albert to ditch the music business and become an English teacher. Desperate for a publicity stunt big enough to help them survive Birdie’s departure, Albert and Rose hatch a plan: send Conrad to small-town America to plant his goodbye kiss on one lucky fan for the entire world to see.
Their selection of super fan Kim Macafee sends the wholesome enclave of Sweet Apple, Ohio into chaos. Kim’s boyfriend Hugo can’t take the humiliation of his girlfriends televised lip-lock. Rose can’t take another minute of Albert’s distracted ways. And Sweet Apple can’t take its teens riotous rebellion, inspired by the arrival of bad boy Birdie. Will Sweet Apple ever be the same?
