‘You go to the Progress class if you cant do sums or writing. If y’backward like’ When Mrs Kay’s Progress class set out on a coach trip to Conway Castle in Wales, it is a celebration of the joys and pains of being fourteen and away from school. It also highlights the depressing empty future of these comprehensive no-hopers from the back streets of Liverpool, for whom a day out is as much as they can expect.

Frost/Nixon In 1977, a series of interviews between failing British talkshow host David Frost and disgraced American President Richard Nixon were televised. The resulting conversations were epic battles, witnessed by the largest ever television audience for a news interview. But the drama that unfolded on screen was only a hint of what was going on behind the scenes...

The Perfect Murder If you are a fan of a good thriller, make sure you catch Shaun McKenna’s adaptation of the Peter James novel, in which Roy Grace appears for the first time. Victor and Joan Smiley are a middle aged couple living in a marriage which has long since lost its spark and they are constantly at each other. They each have a secret and they each have a plan.

Mrs Warren’s Profession LDS Production Monday 21 - Saturday 26 May 2018, 7:30pm Saturday Matinée 2:30pm By George Bernard Shaw Directed by Christine Hewson Witty Comedy Adult: £15.00 Conc.: £13.50 Premium Seat: £16.00

A man of many talents, Shaw’s attitude as a playwright made it virtually impossible for the contemporary theatre to accommodate his work. In 1898 he entitled a collection of three of his plays as Plays Unpleasant. One of them was Mrs Warren’s Profession which was not performed in public until 1902. Mrs Warren had been censored. Shaw, in writing about the realities of contemporary sexual exploitation – Mrs Warren’s profession – creates a delightfully witty play about a Cambridge-educated girl meeting a mother whom she barely knows. This amateur production of “Mrs Warren’s Profession” is presented by special arrangement with The Society of Authors.

Specials Engine Shed and Something for the Weekend presents

“Lane’s performance is truly incredible as he explores the facets of Wisdom and it would take a heart of stone not to be moved by the way his experiences are portrayed.” – British Theatre Guide

Written and performed by Jack Lane

Additional material by Martyn Bell

Music and direction by Kenny Clayton

Star of 1950s British stage and screen, the legendary Norman Wisdom packed houses across the UK, won the hearts of millions and remains one of the UK’s comedy icons. The world of post-war Music Hall and Variety embraced his trademark manic slapstick routine and catapulted him to stardom. Over the years he perfected an act that would go on to shape his unique style; his cloth cap, ill-fitting suit and classic underdog character leading Charlie Chaplin to describe him as his ‘favourite clown’. Success on the silver screen including the hit song ‘Don’t Laugh at Me’, sealed his fame. But, as ever, fame came at a price... Portraying thirty characters in this tour de force performance, Jack Lane takes you on an emotional roller coaster, revealing the man – and the extraordinary talent - behind the Gump costume. The Gump costume that features in the play belonged to Norman himself and has been generously loaned to the production by his son and daughter, Nicholas and Jacqueline Wisdom.
