Jacqueline du Pre was a brilliant young cellist, whose career was brought to an end by multiple sclerosis. One of the most heart rending true-life tragedies of the 1970's. ''Duet for One, is a speculative dramatization of that story. It is an intensely moving & life enhancing look at what happens when unexpected events lead you to re-evaluate your life.

TheCOMPANY are the Heron's associate company.

Hardy’s masterpiece, traces the life of the young country girl Tess Durbeyfield, driven by family poverty to claim kinship with the wealthy D’Urberville family. This story of the innocent heroine is one of the most moving in all of literature, and is hauntingly brought to life in this new version by Hotbuckle.

A very welcome return to Hotbuckle who brought 'Wuthering Heights' and 'Emma' to the Heron in recent years.

In 1990 Arthur discovered a locked chest in an attic filled with letters between his mother, Edith and a soldier, Geoffrey, fighting in the tunnels along the Western Front. Edith and Geoffrey spent only four days together before Geoffrey went to war in 1916. Despite this, their letters are full of light & life. They tease and joke with each other, writing about shows, books & music they have enjoyed. It is impossible not to be moved by this real-life love story.

Glow was founded by Gloria and Francis Lowe, who together merge traditional storytelling with digital media and animation to create performances they hope will offer audiences a new and exciting experience.
