Called the funniest farce ever written, Noises Off is the fast-paced story of a mismatched theatre group attempting to put on the farce Nothing On. Unfortunately, many problems stand in their way, including sardines, fracturing relationships, missing contact lenses, sabotage, disappearing actors, and more sardines. As things start to unravel from all sides, the cast and crew are left with one despairing question: Will the show go on?
Yes, Prime Minister

From Antony Jay & Jonathan Lynn, writers of the original television series, comes the equally sharply satirical stage version. More poignant than ever in the wake of BREXIT, this side-splitting comedy will leave you wondering if leaving the EU wasn't such a bad idea after all . . . or then again, judging by this lot, maybe not!
Arsenic and Old Lace

Helped along by a cast of misfits and the criminally insane, Arsenic & Old Lace is a fast-paced, vintage comedy with a killer punchline. Joseph Kesselring's genre-defining play put black comedy back on the map when it was first presented in 1941.
