    Instead of GCSEs, Cain, Riyad and Jonjo got sentences. Locked up in a young offenders' institution, they trade sweets, chat shit, kill time - and await fatherhood. Grace’s job is to turn these teenagers into parents, but can they grow up quickly enough to escape the system?

    Pleasance Theatre
    Wednesday Matinee

    Forget The Seagull. It's just another Stupid F*cking Bird. In this award winning, irreverent, moving and wonderfully f*cked up adaptation of Chekhov’s The Seagull, US playwright Aaron Posner delves deep to show just how funny and disappointing love, art, and growing up can be— especially when you're searching for meaning in a ridiculous world that just doesn't really seem to care.

The film’s lead actors – Robert Shaw, Roy Scheider and Richard Dreyfuss – are stuck on a boat, frustrated by foul weather and a faulty mechanical co-star. Awash with alcohol and ambition, three great white sharks start to bare their teeth… The Shark is Broken reveals the hilarious behind-the-scenes drama on one of Hollywood’s biggest blockbusters.

  • Sh!t-faced Shakespeare: Macbeth
    Sh!t-faced Shakespeare: Macbeth
    Leicester Square Theatre
    No Matinee

    Sh!t-faced Shakespeare® is back for the 5th year at Leicester Square Theatre and it’s going to be a bloodbath, with their all-new production of Macbeth. Upon hearing the weird sisters’ prediction, Macbeth and his wily wife take matters into their own hands and burn down everything in their wake. Well, almost. Fair is foul and foul is fair in this tale of prophecy gone slightly off the rails. Perhaps an inebriated actor will help the process along?

    Thursday Matinee

    Academy® Award winning actress Whoopi Goldberg is back as Deloris Van Cartier with BAFTA award winner Jennifer Saunders in the role of Mother Superior as Sister Act The Musical comes to London in Summer 2020. 

    Based on the iconic movie, this sparkling tribute to the universal power of friendship, sisterhood and music tells the hilarious story of the disco diva whose life takes a surprising turn when she witnesses a murder. Under protective custody she is hidden in the one place she won’t be found – a convent!  Disguised as a nun and under the suspicious watch of Mother Superior, Deloris helps her fellow sisters find their voices as she unexpectedly rediscovers her own.

    Featuring original music by Tony® and 8-time Oscar® winner Alan Menken (Disney’s Aladdin, Enchanted), dazzling dance routines and songs inspired by Motown, soul and disco, Sister Act is the funniest and funkiest musical around.

    It’s gonna be fabulous baby!
