HAYWIRE by Eric Chappell
September 17- October 8 Thursday to Saturday
Matinees on Sunday September 25 & October 2
A British farce in the best tradition: born out of believable characters trapped in ridiculous situations. Alec is planning a wonderful tryst in Marbella, Spain, with his assistant at the book-shop, while his wife goes off on a tour of the Netherlands and the tulip fields. Schedules are tight, but he is on track. Well… almost. A multitude of problems beset him from sundry members of his dysfunctional family. Witty and hilarious!
SENSE and SENSIBILITY by Jane Austen (adapted by Jon Jory)
October 29 – November 19 Thursday to Saturday
Matinees on Sunday November 6 & November 13
Jane Austen’s beloved novel has been beautifully adapted in this condensed version of her story. Two sisters, Elinor, and Marianne, handle love in very different ways, One ready to surrender all for love , throwing caution to the wind: and the other loves as deeply , but is more circumspect. Their reliance on each other mirrors many of Austen’s heroines and also her own (too short) life. The manners and morals of the late 18th century are explored in this timeless classic.

Matinees Sunday January 29 & February 5

The protagonist in this thriller is a confident Manhattan lawyer, who has never lost a case and is anticipating a messy and expensive divorce from his wife. He walks and talks with the prospective “prosecutor” through a number of court-room scenarios, as he plans how to kill his wife and get away with it. The plot thickens (you knew it would) when his girlfriend gets involved.

Set in Manchester, this domestic comedy along the lines of a “Coronation Street”, involves a couple wrestling with the problems and pitfalls common to many : family (or lack of), hum-drum every-day life, and mid-life crises. Bob and Jeff, share both a home and a Kitchen Reno business. A trip to Greece ruptured their relationship. Will Bob’s hilarious family help or hinder a reconciliation? Both funny and moving – at the same time.
