Cyrano de Bergerac

Fierce with a pen and notorious in combat, Cyrano almost has it all - if only he could win the heart of his true love. There’s just one big problem: he has a nose as huge as his heart. Will a society engulfed by narcissism get the better of De Bergerac - or can his mastery of language set Roxane’s world alight? James McAvoy returns to the West End in an inventive new adaptation of Edmond Rostand’s masterwork by Martin Crimp, with direction by Jamie Lloyd.

Moliere12a

1644, Paris, and 22-year-old Jean-Baptiste Poquelin, also known as Molière, is not yet the writer that history recognizes as the father and true master of comic satire, author of The Misanthrope and Tartuffe, and a dramatist to rank alongside Shakespeare and Sophocles. Far from it. He is, in fact, a failed actor.

Top HatU

Top Hat is perhaps the archetypal Fred n' Ginger movie, with a fantastic Irving Berlin score ("Cheek to Cheek", " 'Top Hat, White Tie, and Tails"), faultless Hermes Pan dance routines which show exactly why they were such a celebrated pair of toe-tappers, and a typically romantic plot. Recently married Horace Hardwick persuades his friend Jerry Travers (Astaire) to follow his lead and find himself a wife. Dale Tremont (Rogers) lives in the room below Travers and is disturbed by his spontaneous song and dance routines. She goes to his room to complain: they meet; he gets up to all sorts of amusing tricks to be with her; numerous romantic duets ensue.

NTLive
The Welkin

One life in the hands of 12 women. Rural Suffolk in England, 1759. As the country waits for Halley’s comet, a young woman is sentenced to hang for a heinous murder. When she claims to be pregnant, a jury of 12 matrons are taken from their housework to decide whether she’s telling the truth, or simply trying to escape the noose. With only midwife Lizzy Luke prepared to defend the girl, and a mob baying for blood outside, the matrons wrestle with their new authority, and the devil in their midst. James Macdonald (Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?) directs Maxine Peake (The Theory of Everything, Funny Cow) and Ria Zmitrowicz (Three Girls, Mr. Selfridge) in this bold and gripping thriller from Tony Award-nominated writer Lucy Kirkwood (Chimerica, Skins).

Flying Bridge Theatre Ltd
Horse Country

‘Directed by Mark Bell (The Play that Goes Wrong), Sam and Bob are trying to play cards but have lost the nine of diamonds. Downing shots of bourbon and talking nonsense, about commerce, California, redemption, the good ol’ US of A, genocide, Hitler, sea lions and stuff like that. A modern day Vladimir and Estragon who aren’t waiting for Godot – nor for the audience to keep up – the play is a laugh-out-loud anarchic and surreal comedy that surprises and provokes in spades… or the nine of diamonds…
