IN THE 65 SEAT BASEMENT

The Extraordinary Cabaret of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde, adapted by Ruby In The Dust. A far cry from the opera houses, the salons and the gentlemen’s clubs; this production delves into the darker, murkier underbelly of Victorian London: tawdry theatres, burlesque bars, cabaret clubs and opium dens.

Austin's Women by Rebecca Vaughan & Guy Masterson. Starring Rebecca Vaughan. Some of the moments from the complete works of Jane Austen. Thirteen of Austen's women are assembled in one distillation of 19th century feminism.

Children of Darkness by Edwin Justus Mayer, directed by Eric Richard. Inside London’s infamous Newgate Prison, 1725; a corrupt, loveless world where anything can be bought, even freedom, but at what price? Its inmates – the notorious Jonathan Wild, London’s first organised crime lord, aristocrats, a young poet and Laetitia, the sensual but brutalised gaoler’s daughter – all dance to this damning drum beat.
