This play was banned in many theatres in 2007 following outbreaks of trouble between rival model railway club fans storming the stages.   We are committed to keep violence out of Model Railways and have banned the use of all flasks entering our venue during the performance.  British Transport Police inform us they will have extra officers stationed at New Cross BR station also in case it kicks off there.

THE BRIDGE by Harry Denford

5* reviewed.   A dark comedy about a bridge, When you plan the perfect end, what can go wrong!  The answer someone else with the same idea and a stand off, well jump off occurs and no one is going to jump until the other leaves.   Help arrives in the local traffic police unit manned by officers with more issues then the two jumpers, and a morbid interest in model railways.   This comedy has been seen at numerous theatres in the last ten years.

'One of the best plays written about model railways and Lemsip'  Colin & Keith '009 gauge group'

'23 minutes into this play, N gauge is mentioned as having 16.5mm track, which of course is not the case.  I call that this play be banned and will be bringing it up at our next committee meeting as it clearly does not represent N gauge, over its clear bias towards OO gauge model railway modellers'.    Colin 'N Gauge Action Group'

'Oi Colin from the N Gauge group - who are ah!  Who are ah!  Remember Leeds 2015, if you want bit more of that - bring it on!   Keith organiser of  - 'The Intercity Firm - Midland mainline branch'

This is a highly-regarded and popular play about the lives of Arthur Stanley Jefferson (Stan) and Norvell Hardy (Ollie).

It details their commitment to their work, the appreciation of their fans, the love of their wives and – most enduringly – their unerring devotion to each other.

Joseph Merrick (better known as The Elephant Man) is possibly the most famous 'freak' in history. He was, of course, born and grew up in Leicester. Many stage plays and the popular film have told a romantic and often fictional account of his story. 'Mr Merrick, The Elephant Man' is the first play to actually only deal with the known facts about Merrick's final years in The London Hospital, Whitechapel and his complicated relationship with his doctor, Frederick Treves. With a cast of just two, the use of interactive video projections and a soundtrack consisting entirely of actual Victorian recordings, Lucky Dog Theatre Productions bring their current show to Lewisham Fringe. Painstakingly researched and written with the support of Merrick historians, expect to be enlightened and moved by the stirring true story of 'the most remarkable man ever to draw the breath of life'.

by Bertolt Brecht    (translated and adapted by Larissa Turkina)

The play follows the young prostitute, Shen Teh, on her mission to remain good according to the rules set forth by the gods. But the good citizens of Szechwan take advantage of Shen Teh’s goodness, and to defend her livelihood, Shen Teh must assume the cold and unwavering male alter ego, Shui Ta.
