William Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night
Directed by Sam Powell

Shipwrecked and separated from her twin brother, Viola washes up on a strange shore. Disguising herself as a man called Cesario, Viola finds work with Duke Orsino, only to fall head over heels in love with him. But Orsino is in love with Olivia, who is grieving for her brother and refusing all offers of romance. Until, that is, she sees Cesario for the first time. Add one ambitious butler, a drunken uncle and some practical-joking servants and you have a hugely entertaining story of hoaxes, heartbreak and hidden identities.

20-22nd June 2024

Alan Ayckbourn’s Absent Friends
Directed by James Barnard

It’s always good to see old friends – isn’t it? All Diana wants to do is console the recently-bereaved Colin with a gathering of old friends and a nice cup of tea. But the reunion succeeds only in pouring salt into old wounds, and what a shame Gordon couldn’t come, being so unwell. In typical Ayckbourn style this play is at times sad and touching, but always bitingly funny. At least Colin seems to be enjoying life…
