This intimate show is set in a library full of books that hold more than stories within their pages. It is a tale of the power of books, and the bravery of a young boy called Tomas. Tomas hates reading and school, but his world is turned upside down the day he meets the Unicorn Lady ...
An enchanting and interactive production, I Believe in Unicorns sparks imagination in both young and old. We challenge you not to believe in unicorns after joining Tomas’ spellbinding journey.
Recommended Age: 6+
Book Swap - You are invited to bring along your favourite children's book which will go up on stage as part of the set and then swap it at the end of the show for another book.
The Drama Scholars come together with teachers and adult performers to honour the art of letter writing, through this intimate evening of readings in the library.
The evening will explore letters of various tones, some humorous, many moving but all written with a remarkable personal touch that our scholars will aim to replicate in their performed readings.
Ranging from letters to and from public figures to letters between family members, the evening promises to be a celebration of literary correspondence throughout history.
Tickets include a glass of wine or a soft drink to enjoy whilst experiencing the sharing of the letters, with all proceeds for the evening being donated to ‘Their Future Today’, a charity whom the Drama Department are supporting this year. For more information please visit www.theirfuturetoday.com
Daniel Spargo-Mabbs was a bright, articulate and popular 16 year-old from south London with a great sense of humour and a huge zest for life. He died on 20 January 2014, having taken MDMA (ecstasy) at an illegal rave a couple of days earlier. This wasn’t the kind of thing Dan usually did.
The Daniel Spargo-Mabbs Foundation, a drug and alcohol education charity has been set up by Dan’s parents, Tim and Fiona, in order to try to prevent any harm happening to any other family
I Love You, Mum – I Promise I Won’t Die
This verbatim play, written by award-winning playwright Mark Wheeller, tells Dan’s story, entirely in the words of his family and friends. The audience sees the decisions that led to his death and the consequences of his loss on his friends and his family.
The title comes from the final words Dan said to his mother Fiona before he left home for the last time on 17 January 2014.
The performance (45mins) will be followed by a Q&A session with the playwright Mark Wheeller.

"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…
