The Woman in Black
Bone-chilling thriller! I watched half the show with my fingers in my ears...and loved every minute! No wonder it’d been on for 30 years...

The Play That Goes Wrong
Extremely funny. At times totally unexpected, at others predictable but always a giggle. Well acted, easily relatable to and again, a lovely giggle.

Our expert's play pick

"The two actors are excellent and the play is fantastically written, building the tension whilst providing moments of light relief.

It is definitely scary, using clever staging that will have you jumping out of your seat, making it a great night out that’s a bit different from everything else that’s on."
