And A Nightingale Sang

This play follows the course of World War II as experienced by a working-class family in Newcastle, each scene being opened by a member of the family addressing the audience or singing a song of the period. In wartime there are no public worries, only private worries, and this story of the family's personal relationships, preoccupations, troubles and joys suggests, perhaps, the reason why with all the perils and troubles besieging it, the human race will continue to survive.

Directed by Carolyn Baines

The Play runs from Saturday 14/09/2019 to Saturday 21/09/2019 (excluding Sunday 15/09/2019).

Brontë

A compelling literary detective story about the turbulent lives of the Brontë sisters - dramatised by Polly Teale.

In 1845, Branwell Brontë returns home in disgrace, plagued by his addictions. As he descends into alcoholism and insanity, bringing chaos to the household, his sisters write…

Polly Teale's extraordinary play evokes the real and imagined worlds of the Brontës, as their fictional characters come to haunt their creators.

Directed by Eleanor Maxwell

The Play runs from Tuesday 15/10/2019 to Saturday 19/10/2019. This is a Studio Production
