A Classic Thriller by Frederick Knott
27th February - 4th March 2017
“At exactly eleven o’clock, I shall go to the telephone in the hotel to call my boss. I shall dial the wrong number. This number. That’s all I shall do.”
Happily married, socialite Sheila Wendice is content with her life. Tony Wendice however has married his wife for her money and now plans to murder her for the same reason. He arranges the perfect murder; blackmailing an old acquaintance into strangling her, and arranging a brilliant alibi for himself. The plan is ingenious; fool-proof. Unfortunately, a perfect murder in the planning doesn’t always mean a perfect murder in reality. A classic thriller immortalised in Hitchcock’s classic film, that will leave you gripped to the last.

An ‘In-Yer-Face’ Drama by Jez Butterworth
24th - 29th April 2017
“My dad said he jumped buses. Horseboxes. Jumped an aqueduct once. He was gonna jump Stonehenge but the council put a stop to it.”
On St. George‘s Day, the morning of the local county fair, Johnny Byron, local waster and modern day Pied Piper, is a wanted man. The council officials want to serve him an eviction notice, his son wants to go to the fair, a vengeful father wants to give him a serious kicking and a motley crew of mates want his ample supply of drugs and alcohol. Tender, touching and blessed with both a ribald humour and a haunting sense of the mystery of things, Jerusalem rolls in unpredictable gusts from comic to furious, from winsome to bawdy.

12th - 17th June 2017
“Sometimes there’s not much difference between a lie and a wish.”
In her Yorkshire council house, no-nonsense Mari is having a clear out before the ‘Big Move’ brought on by cancer. There’s a lifetime of clutter to be sorted, the house needs cleaning from top to bottom, and the squirrels in the loft have to be dealt with before she can bow out. But, as well as memories of holidays in Mablethorpe and day trips to Flamingoland, there’s a big box of family secrets to dust off and unwrap. Will Mari decide to let sleeping dogs lie or will she force them all to wake up and finally face the truth? Homing in on the lives of four women unable to talk about their feelings, this is a big-hearted, bittersweet comedy about mothers, sisters, lies and love.
