BEYOND WORDS

This is a new venture by theCompany - an original and entertaining 'revue style' show which is linked together by the theme of 'words'.

Eleven talented actors aged from 17 to 79 bring the show to life, performing songs by Cole Porter and Stephen Sondheim and excerpts from 'The History Boys', 'Under Milk Wood', 'The Lady in the Van', 'Henry V' and much, much more.

Highly entertaining, bittersweet and thought-provoking - a definite 'not to be missed' show.

FERN HILL AND OTHER DYLAN THOMAS

Dylan Thomas' wonderful short stories and poems are brought vividly to life in this enchanting, award winning show. Often overshadowed by his masterpiece, Under Milk Wood, world renowned solo performer Guy Masterson reveals the magic of Dylan Thomas' "other" works in a performance "of staggering energy and invention" (The Scotsman) brilliantly conjuring the romantic lyricism and genius in wordplay that made Thomas one of the World's greatest writers.

The programme includes three of Thomas' wonderful short stories; A Visit To Grandpa's, Holiday Memory and, of course, A Christmas Story (more popularly known as A Child's Christmas In Wales), plus a selection of his greatest verse including Fern Hill, Do Not Go Gentle Into That Good Night and Death Shall Have No Dominion.

MRS OSCAR WILDE

Constance Lloyd is rarely remembered in literary history. A feminist, a writer and a mother, she is rather remembered as the wife of one of the most infamous Victorians – Oscar Wilde.

From her childhood days suffering at the hands of her abusive mother to blossoming into a young woman of society, Constance’s story is intriguing and varied. She had her own income, she brought up her two small children almost single-handedly and was one of the most well-known faces and names among the celebrities of London in the late 1800s.

In this presentation of her life, told using excerpts of accounts in letters to those she knew and loved, in which she reveals a wit that rivalled Oscar himself, a sense of humour dry and winning and a sense of self that will have every audience member rooting for her from beginning to end.

Featuring award-winning actress and writer Lexi Wolfe who received the nomination for Best Female Actor at the Buxton Fringe 2016 for this production.
