  • Amour

    Charing Cross Theatre
    Wednesday Matinee

    Paris, 1950 – a shy, unassuming civil servant, Dusoleil (Gary Tushaw), lives alone and works diligently in a dreary office. To pass the time, he writes letters to his mother and daydreams about the beautiful Isabelle, who is kept locked away by her controlling husband. When Dusoleil miraculously gains the ability to walk through walls, he not only begins to lead a double life, stealing from the rich and giving to the poor to right the wrongs of his war-impoverished Parisian neighbours, but also gains the self-confidence to woo Isabelle (Anna O’Byrne) and, just for a while, live the life he has always longed for.

    A musical fantasy about daring to dream and the power of self-belief.

    Staring Gary Tushaw (Ragtime) as Dusoleil and Anna O'Byrne (The Woman In White) as Isabelle as well as Alasdair Harvey (Sunday In The Park With George) as the Prosecutor, Isabelle's controlling husband.

    Louise Jameson and Thomas Mahy star in Robert Chevara’s acclaimed production of Philip Ridley’s Vincent River.
    Davey has seen something he can never forget. Anita has been forced to flee her home. Tonight, they meet for the first time... and their lives will change forever.
    Philip Ridley’s modern classic was a huge success when it premiered at Hampstead Theatre in 2001, and a West End smash at Trafalgar Studios in 2007. This year, it returns to Studio 2 as a new production direct from the Park Theatre.
    Thrilling, heartbreaking and darkly humorous by turns, it is now seen as one of the most powerful explorations of hate crime - and society’s need to crush ‘difference’ - ever written.

  • Education, Education, Education
    Education, Education, Education
    Trafalgar Studio One
    Thursday Matinee

    It's May 1997. Tony Blair has won the election and Katrina and the Waves have won Eurovision. The iPhone doesn't exist, no one knows who Harry Potter is and Titanic is on the shelves of every Blockbuster. Britain is the coolest place in the world.
     
    At the local secondary school, it's a different story. It's the last week of term and Tobias, the new German language assistant has just arrived in the UK. While political change occurs outside of the classroom, a revolution slowly starts to take place within it. Tobias is greeted by a group of eccentric schoolteachers just trying to make it through the day, including Miss Belltop-Doyle who can't control her year 10s and Mr Pashley who is trying to keep a confiscated Tamagotchi alive.
     
    This whip-smart show is a love letter to education in the 90s and is jam-packed with more hits than ‘Now That’s What I Call 1997’ including Oasis, Katrina and the Waves, The Spice Girls. Crammed with Teletubbies references, jokes about Take That and the Macarena, Education Education Education is the new must see comedy of 2019 and plays a strictly limited 4 week season at the Trafalgar Studios.
