    Look on with wonder as three daring actors flit manically between countless colourful characters during 90 minutes of magical mayhem. With good old-fashioned slapstick silliness, daft one-liners, and bizarre puppetry, this critically acclaimed comedy-theatre company takes the life story of the Brothers Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm and turns it on its head with a dash of whimsy and a good deal of mischief. On the eve of publishing the final volume of what will become the greatest collection of fairy tales the world has ever seen, an old foe lets it be known that he intends to collect on an old debt. To save her beloved older brothers their sister Lotte has to travel deep into the Fairy Tale Kingdom and confront the evil Rumplestiltskin. A rollicking evening of brilliantly inventive, family-friendly anarchic comedy.

    William Shakespeare - the greatest playwright the world has ever seen? Or a fraud? In a superb and very funny one-man show, Royal Shakespeare Company actor Nicholas Collett takes audiences on a journey through the life of the world's most famous writer: his childhood, his glory days at the Globe, his ardent defence of his reputation. Mingling biography with snapshots of Elizabethan life and snippets from his plays, and packed with emotional punches and entertaining punchlines, this is a piece of pure theatre magic.

  • 12 April 2019 to 1 January 1900

    A richly enjoyable night of hot jazz, blues, ragtime and popular dances that hint at jazz age 1920s and swing era 1930s; New Orleans, tea dances, Paris Cafés, and sophisticated, smoky nightclubs. Three superbly talented musicians splice quality crooning, a bewildering variety of instruments, a delightful period charm and a flirtatious twinkle in the eye (on the slightly more risqué material), into a laid-back acoustic treat.

    Blending theatre, music and film, Royal Shakespeare Company actor Nicholas Collett tells the intimate and very human story of the life (and unresolved troubles) of an ex-Battle of Britain Spitfire pilot, now in a residential care home. A compelling look at one of the pivotal moments of the war, and the history, triumphs and tragedies of a truly memorable character, this is hugely entertaining storytelling - a masterpiece of one-man theatre.
