BRAMBLE THEATRE - THE STORM OFFICER

Brilliantly observed, poignant, funny and interwoven with outstanding original live music and song, The Storm Officer tells of one town's struggle when faced with the realities of extreme weather and the ever-increasing impact of the climate crisis.

Drawing on true-life stories of Storm Desmond in 2015 and forgotten tales of bizarre and dramatic weather events from the last thousand years - whether wild floods, Nottinghamshire whirlwinds, fire-drakes, or the very Thames frozen over - this show invites you to explore what it means to still call somewhere home in the face of adversity.

Ages: 12+

The Library Siege presented by the Robin Hood Theatre

It’s the end of another quiet day at Higgsfield Library. Three librarians, sorry, cultural service advisors, are just getting ready to leave, when something happens that will change their lives forever and leave the fate of mankind hanging by a thread….. Well, more or less….

In this wacky new comedy by Barry Wood, our three slightly eccentric library staff end up being held hostage by a conspiracy theorist who is trying to save the world from an alien takeover. It all sounds highly implausible, but, who knows, maybe he really is on to something after all.

Hang onto your hats, the cultural services advisors are in for a rollercoaster ride at the library as the evening spirals out of control, with lots of laughs on the way.

SPITZ & CO. LES GLORIABLES

Les Gloriables is a riotously silly show created by the award-winning French/English female comedy-theatre duo Lise Boucon, as the legendary French actress Gloria Delaneuf, and Susie Donkin (Horrible Histories) as her downtrodden, endlessly apologetic assistant Josephine.

The glamorous Gloria has dreamed a dream. Determined to reunite Europe, she takes her one-woman version of Victor Hugo's classic novel Les Miserables to the streets, and stomps all over it, with ridiculous costume changes, 21st Century jokes, and a big chunk of wildly inventive and hilarious audience participation. A master class in resistance – French style. Vive La Revolution!

DAISY CHAPMAN & SUE LORD IN CONCERT

A well-travelled and extremely talented pianist-singer and songwriter, Daisy Chapman's powerful and perceptive narrative songs have been described as 'an enchanting work between chanson and classic songwriting' (Rolling Stone Magazine). Taking their lyrical cues from the likes of Leonard Cohen they range from the intimate to the epic, from dark tales from the depths of history, to darkly comedic stories of lust, love and loss.

With Daisy's incredible voice backed by her own beautifully delivered 'Nymanesque' piano and Sue Lord's dramatic and sweeping violin, the effect is stunning.

The Waiting Room

A new musical comedy from Carolyn Drury and Cliff McArdle

This is an affectionate look at the National Health Service with special reference to Suningsby Surgery which, like the NHS in general, has its share of problems. Too many patients and not enough doctors for a start. The Practice Manager keeps trying to bridge the gap by employing Nurses with so-called special skills and a Pharmacist who keeps trying to cut down everyone’s pills. The patients aren’t happy even though the Receptionists have had special training in how to smile and be pleasant to people.
