Friday19th May7:30pm
Saturday20th May7:30pm

Inspired by a true story and based on the hit movie, Made in Dagenham is the uplifting new West End musical comedy about friendship, love and the importance of fighting for what is right.

Essex 1968. Like millions of other working women, each morning Rita O’Grady is just trying to get her husband out of bed, get the kids off to school and get to work at the factory on time. But life is about to change forever when it’s announced that the girls in the stitching room of Ford’s Dagenham car plant will have their pay grade dropped to ‘unskilled’. Quickly drawing on a strength she never knew she had, Rita leads her friends in a battle against the might of Ford and the corruption of the Union supposed to protect them. As the girls’ inspiring journey gets bigger than anyone could have imagined, the pressure is too much for some, but can Rita keep up the fight and the happy home she’s worked so hard for?

Funny, touching and timeless, Made in Dagenham shows how ordinary people can do extraordinary things when they stand together.

This event is recommended for an audience of ages 12+

Clare Macnaughton presents: I Hate Housework

Friday 26th May, 7:30pm

Clare Macnaughton started the blog ‘A Modern Military Mother’. She is considered an outspoken voice as a no baking, no singing, feminist military spouse. Clare’s caustic observations resonate with many married men and women.

She ghost wrote the Sunday Times bestseller ‘Battlefield Memoir’ and in 2012 self-published her short non-fiction book ‘A Modern Military Mother - Tales from the frontline’. For the last 3 years she has been a hit on the Wiltshire and Hampshire WI speaker circuit, although due to the nature of the audience couldn’t speak her ruder material!

This test gig is to try out on a new audience, the ruder material of stand up comedy, prose and poetry that she has written over the last decade. Laughs out loud guaranteed!

This event has an age restriction of 16+

Tickets: Adults £8

Beauty and the Beast Jr.

Based on the original Broadway production Disney’s Beauty and the Beast JR. is a fantastic adaptation of the story of transformation and tolerance.

The classic story tells of Belle, a young woman in a provincial town, and the Beast, who is really a young prince trapped under the spell of an enchantress. If the Beast can learn to love and be loved, the curse will end and he will be transformed to his former self. But time is running out. If the Beast does not learn his lesson soon, he and his household will be doomed for all eternity.

Instant Wit presents: The Unusual Suspects

Saturday 1st July, 8:00pm

Instant Wit, the best in improvised comedy. Fresh and inventive, each show throws up new nuggets of hilarity crafted by a company of the highest calibre. It’s a pick-me-up tonic with unexpected twists and a dash of sauce.

There’ll be sketches, songs and general silliness – and all of it based around audience suggestions. And if you’re too shy to shout anything out? Well don’t worry, you’ll have the chance to write things down in the interval. We’re the ones who’ll look daft, not you!

So now’s the time to indulge yourself if you’ve always had a secret yearning to see something really bizarre on stage. A country and western song about a set of false teeth? President Trump playing Twister with Theresa May? Well why not? Your wish is our command. Good suggestions get flying packets of custard, the best a bottle of wine.

Many people have seen improvised comedy on the T.V. – but remember, this is not recorded and edited, but totally live, making it trickier for the actors but more exciting for the audience. So, if you like your comedy fast-paced and with a slightly unusual edge, this is definitely for you.

We’re proud to use some of the best in local talent, with our performers regularly appearing at the Tobacco Factory, Theatre Royal Bath and the Bristol Old Vic.

Instant Wit – a bunch of very Unusual Suspects who are forever on the run from the Comedy Police.

"These are conspicuously skilful performers - everyone is exhilarated on stage and off!"
The Guardian

“Extremely funny, on occasion hilarious…very clever and skilful with their improvised comedy sketches. They got the audience involved at every opportunity – they even made up a song about a round of sausage sandwiches I had had for breakfast!”
Bristol Post
