Daisy Pulls it Off

a comedy by Denise Deegan

5 – 8 December 2018, 7.45pm

Daisy Meredith is the first ever scholarship girl at Grangewood School for Young Ladies. Can she overcome her poor upbringing, outwit the school bullies, master the rules of hockey and find the lost treasure of Grangewood? There's only one way to find out!

The side-splittingly funny spoof of English school girl advenure novels, complete with rather ridiculous accents, is top-notch. An Olivier Award-winning comedy, it enjoyed a long running success in London’s West End.

The Lady in the Van

a comedy drama by Alan Bennett

20 - 23 February 2019, 7.45pm

In 1974, the homeless Miss Shepherd moved her broken down van into Alan Bennett’s garden. Deeply eccentric and stubborn to her bones, Miss Shepherd was not an easy tenant. And Bennett, despite inviting her in the first place, was a reluctant landlord. And yet she lived there for fifteen years.

The play premiered in 1999, directed by Nicholas Hytner and starring Dame Maggie Smith, who reprised her role in the recent film adaptation.

by Dawn King

24 – 27 April 2019, 7.45pm

‘Most of what she told me about herself is a cover story. She is a British Intelligence Officer. How far whould she go to get information out of me? The answer is, quite far.’

A young woman is found dead. Her sister sets out to find out what happened, and stumbles into a world of secrets and subterfuge that makes her question who Justine really was. How well can you ever know someone who lies for a living?

Ciphers is a smart and provocative thriller about spies and double agents.

‘an ingenious spy thriller... echoes of le Carré...’ The Guardian
