The Rats by Agatha Christie, directed by Helen Berry
Who wouldn’t look forward to a cocktail party with friends on a sunny summer evening? Suitably dressed and raring to have good time, a man and a woman turn up to find no party and themselves locked in. What is going on and why?
The Regina Monologues by Rebecca Russell and Jenny Wafer, directed by Debbie Simmons
Admired, vilified, de-humanised. Three Catherines, two Annes and a Jane. Six women with one thing in common – marriage to a man called Henry – have passed into historical legend. Of course, it couldn’t happen these days…Six modern women have also married one man. Their lives are both separate and intertwined as they tell their stories from a room in which they have all once lived. Their experiences – miscarriage, love affairs, betrayal, and a shared loathing of all things ginger – are portrayed with humour, pathos and a great deal of wine.
