Iron by Rona Munro 25 January - 1 February 2020
A powerfully moving contemporary prison drama. When Josie visits her mother Fay, convicted fifteen years before of the murder of her husband, their memories are gradually revealed to us and to Fay’s guards, one a girl of Josie’s age, the other an older man with his own daughters, as Munro invites us to understand what happened from several different perspectives.

No Man’s Land by Harold Pinter 19-22 February 2020 (Studio Production)
Premiered at the National Theatre in 1975 with John Gielgud and Ralph Richardson as the leads, a quintessentially Pinteresque cocktail of witty banter, mystery and intimidation as the down-at-heel poet Spooner tries to infiltrate the house of the wealthy Hirst, but finds his position threatened by the interventions of two younger men, apparently a secretary and driver, though in Pinter’s world of fluid identities and conflicting memories who can say for sure?
Contains occasional strong language

Rumours by Neil Simon 7-14 March 2020
An ingenious farce liberally sprinkled with Simon’s one-liners, unusually in this version with an English setting. Four couples arrive at a party, only to find the hostess disappeared and the host unconscious after what appears to have been a suicide attempt. A mad sequence of false cover-up stories ensues, only to be complicated further when two police arrive to investigate.

Separate Tables by Terence Rattigan 23-30 May 2020
Two brilliantly written, interlinked one-Act dramas share the same seaside hotel setting, where the regular guests are witness to, first, a fraught relationship between a disgraced politician and his former wife and, second, a supposed retired major revealed to have been caught interfering with women in a local cinema and facing a scandalised demand for his eviction.
