Once powerful and respected - then overthrown by Antonio - Prospero is stranded on ‘The Island’, a migrant camp in the year 2020. When a passing ship of politicians and dignitaries - amongst them Antonio - ventures close to The Island, Prospero seizes an opportunity for justice by summoning a fearsome tempest.

Set against a backdrop of mass migration and political corruption, fragments of Verbatim Journalism and striking digital projections punctuate Shakespeare’s original scenes.

This production is a collaboration between Untold Theatre and Yellowbelly Theatre - in recognition of the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s death. There will be collections at each performance in support of Doctors without Borders.

"Set at the end of the 1940's as Britain gets back on its feet after the war. The wedding of Princess Elizabeth and Philip Mountbatten provides the background for this hilarious musical comedy based on the play "A Private Function". The musical involves a pig, chiropodist a music teacher and spam. You will love it!"

By Timberlake Wertenbaker.

Directed by Gemma Fairlie.

Observed by a lone, mystified Aboriginal Australian, the first convict ship arrives in Botany Bay, 1788, crammed with England’s outcasts. Colony discipline in this vast and alien land is brutal. Three proposed public hangings incite an argument: how best to keep the criminals in line, the noose or a more civilised form of entertainment? The ambitious Second Lieutenant Ralph Clark steps forward with a play. But as the mostly illiterate cast rehearses, and a sense of common purpose begins to take hold, the young officer’s own transformation is as marked and poignant as that of his prisoners.

A profoundly humane piece of theatre, steeped in suffering yet charged with hope, Timberlake Wertenbaker’s Our Country’s Good (based on a true story) celebrates the redemptive power of art.

25 years ago, Our Country’s Good premiered at the Royal Court Theatre before transferring to the West End and Broadway, winning major awards on both sides of the Atlantic.

Contains strong language, violence and scenes of an adult nature.

£15 full £10 concession.

Such a familiar tale - yet so strange and full of wonder.

A young woman is expecting, three magi are researching the heavens and two shepherd children are bored out of their heads minding the sheep - well nothing interesting ever happens around Bethlehem in December, does it?!

Wise men (and not so wise men), talking sheep, angels, a shepherd family, camels, a horrible Herod, and carols (old and new) all go to make up a magical retelling of the story of the first Christmas.

ALL TICKETS £8

Meet Jason and the Argonauts – the original superheroes!

A refugee forced out of his own land, Jason sets out on an epic quest across the known universe to find the magical Golden Fleece, that will prove his identity, and allow him to find a home.

Around him Jason assembles the ultimate crew of misfits and outcasts –

Heracles, the strongest man in the world, doomed to perpetual wandering;

Zetes, part-man part-god, possessed with the power of flight; Atalanta, warrior princess, raised by wild bears;

Orpheus, the legendary musician, driven mad by grief.

His journey brings him face-to- face with terrifying dangers – the Harpies, the giant Amycus, an army of skeletons – before having to face the ultimate peril… himself.

A bold theatrical style, clear, accessible storytelling, and live music bring these Ancient Greek legends vividly to life for a new generation.

‘The Argonauts – we have nothing to lose but our fear!’

Suitable for anyone over the age of five with a taste for adventure!
