Tells the story of Horner, a notorious and lascivious man-about-town and his ingenious scheme for the rampant and mass seduction of the women of London society. By spreading the false rumour of his own impotence, he gains the sympathy of the husbands of the town and, more importantly, free access to their wives. Meanwhile the newly-married Pinchwife desperately attempts to keep his naïve country bride from the clutches of predatory London bachelors. When she and Horner meet, events spiral out of his control…

 

The Sea by Edward Bond, opens 23 Jan 2008, following previews from 17 Jan - running to 19 April 2008.

Directed by Jonathan Kent, the cast includes: Eileen Atkins (Mrs Rafi), David Haig (Hatch) and Marcia Warren (Jessica Tilehouse).

Designed by Paul Brown, lighting by Mark Henderson, with sound by Paul Groothuis.

A wild storm shakes a small East Anglian seaside village and sets off a series of events that changes the lives of all its residents. 'Set in the high Edwardian world of 1907, The Sea is a fascinating blend of wild farce, high comedy, biting social satire and bleak poetic tragedy.'

 

Marguerite a new musical with music by Michel Legrand, book by Alain Boublil and Claude-Michel Schönberg and Jonathan Kent, lyrics by Herbert Kretzmer from the original French lyrics by Alain Boublil and orchestrations and arrangements by Michel Legrand and Seann Alderking, opens 6 May 2008, following previews from 20 May - running to 1 Nov 2008.

Directed by Jonathan Kent, the cast includes: Ruthie Henshall (Marguerite)

Their dangerous love story is played out against the background of Occupied Paris.
