ABIGAIL'S PARTY by Mike Leigh

"Do you know what I mean Tone?" If those words send a shiver down your spine then you've probably encountered the monstrous Beverly before.

As hostess of the most excruciatingly uncomfortable soiree ever, the main character of Mike Leigh's  play, Abigail's Party has entered popular culture as the epitome of 1970s suburban boredom and snobbery.

Free cheese and pineapple sticks for everyone and the theatre bar will be removing some of its Chilean Merlot and restocking with 'Blue Nun' to bring back the flavour of the 70's.  

Tickets £15

JEFFERY BERNARD IS UNWELL

by Keith Waterhouse in association with Samuel French

Jeffrey Bernard is Unwell is a play about real-life journalist . Bernard was still alive at the time the play was first performed in the West End in 1989. Bernard wrote the "Low Life" column in The Spectator. The play's title refers to the magazine's habit of printing a one-line apology on a blank page when he was too drunk or hung-over to produce the required copy and a substitute article could not be found before the deadline for publication. Its premise is that Bernard has found himself locked in overnight at his favourite public house, the coach and Horses in Soho Jeffrey Bernard Is Unwell was a highly successful vehicle for its original star Peter O'Toole. The show opened in Brighton in September 1989, moved to Bath and made its triumphant London debut at the Apollo Theatre in Shaftesbury Avenue in October. O'Toole also appeared in a later revival at the Old Vic. The Old Vic run was totally sold out, and on 23 August 1999 the London Evening Standard published a 'Bluffer's Guide' to enable readers to pretend they had seen it: "thereby allowing dinner party conversations and watercooler debates to run their course unhindered by ignorance." O'Toole was followed in the part by Tom Conti who starred in a revival of the play until September 2006 at the Garrick Theatre in London. The part has also been played by James Bolam, Dennis Waterman,  and Robert Powell,  A cast of six bring this great modern  comedy classic to life.

JOY DIVISION - the Nazi Sex Slaves Story

by Harry Denford

In the 70s and early 80s, the well-known Manchester band, Joy Division, took their name from events had nothing to do with joy. The name comes from forced labour camps in Nazi Germany. In these camps, thousands of young  Polish women were used as sex slaves for German officers before they went to fight on the Russian front. These young girls, known as 'Feld Hure' (Field Whores), underwent daily 'enjoyment duty' where three bad reports were met with brutal levels of punishment. The question is, in such dire circumstances, do humans take solace in the companionship of others suffering the same fate? Or does an individual's supposed submission give them greater dominance and a longer shelf life? Warning: Contains Female Nudity. 

This production has been seen in numerous theatres around the UK, performed and was performed in English or Polish and in 2014 was included in the Summer RADA festival in the West End.

Tickets £10.50   (members £5)  Box office 0208 694 1888
