The War of the Worlds

"No one would have believed in the last years of the nineteenth century that this world was being watched keenly and closely by intelligences greater than man's…”

And fewer would have believed in the first years of the twenty-first century that H. G. Wells’ science fiction classic would be performed live by just four actors with intelligences lesser than average…

The critically-acclaimed Pantaloons invade the stage in this funny yet faithful new adaptation as they use musical instruments, puppetry and, um, enthusiasm to recreate deadly heat-rays, giant fighting-machines, squidgy tentacled Martians and interplanetary warfare on an epic scale.

The chances of success? A million to one…

“Part alternative rock band, part thespian… wholly charming” The Times

Bugsy Malone

Welcome to the roaring twenties in the heart of England, good ol’ London!

Prohibition and gangster warfare run riot through the streets with two rival gangs at war. On one side we have Dandy Dan’s gang and on the other, Fat Sam’s. You would think with all of this going on there would be no time for anything else…. that’s where you’re mistaken.

Underground, nothing can interrupt Fat Sam’s ‘Grand Slam’, the most swingin’ jazz club in town. Fat Sam’s offers everything; dancing, showgirls, music, alcohol and dreams. This is where our main man hangs, his name is Malone, Bugsy Malone.

The Juniors of Christ’s Hospital once again prove that they can put on a magnificent performance. Join us for what promises to their best show yet.

An Enemy of the People

“The majority is never right. Never! Who do you think makes up the majority? Intelligent people or a load of bloody fools?”

Having rejuvenated the fortunes of a crumbling town, eminent doctor Tamsin Stockmann expects to be hailed as its saviour once again when she exposes a major public health risk. But the town’s prosperity hangs in the balance and opposition grows. Will she will lauded as hero of the hour or will Dr. Stockmann be declared an enemy of the people?

Following national tours of their “hugely entertaining” (Daily Info) The Government Inspector and “stonkingly brilliant” (Oxford Playhouse) Don Q, Flintlock Theatre return with a reimagined classic. Employing their signature high-energy storytelling, music and live digital interaction, Flintlock’s irreverent style brings Ibsen’s masterpiece into the 21st century in a searing examination of fake news, whistleblowing and who really wields power in contemporary Britain.

Suitable for ages 11+.
