2018-2019 | Harold Pinter Theatre | directed by N/A
A scathing and bitterly amusing attack on the increasingly powerful and narcissistic super-rich, set against the backdrop of terrifying state oppression, the highly pertinent Party Time is paired with Harold Pinter’s final play, Celebration.
Celebration is an irresistible comedy about the vulgarity and ostentatious materialism of the nouveau riche, set in a fashionable London restaurant. An evening of social satire that chimes with our times, directed by Jamie Lloyd.Read more
2018-2018 | Chichester Festival Theatre | directed by Lucy Betts
A princess under a fairy’s curse pricks her finger on a spindle and sleeps for a hundred years, waiting to be woken by a prince’s kiss.
But hold on a moment. There’s a distinctly different slant to this story. The princess is beautiful and spirited but there are two princes and a lot of threatening thorns. As for the fairy who caused all the trouble in the first place – well, putting things right isn’t as simple as casting another spell.
Rufus Norris’s splendidly entertaining and mischievous version of the original fairy tale ventures beyond the usual ‘happy ever after’ ending with the prince and princess united. The course of true love never did run smooth – especially if your mother-in-law is an ogress with an unfortunate taste for human flesh...Read more

In the hilarious Victoria Station and the reflective Family Voices, isolated voices attempt to communicate, but can we ever truly express the depths of our feeling?
Cast includes Rupert Graves, Jane Horrocks, Emma NaoRead more

The Trees themselves will be finally filming Pantomime the Movie (even James made it, when Michael Fassbender had to pull out of the back end of the cow…due to artistic differences) so they are helping us reboot the script and have promised us they’re definitely booking the 40 strong cast and musicians this time.
Follow Cinderella on a perilous adventure as the scheming Rumplestiltskin blackmails the would-be princess into retrieving the coveted Golden Eggs from the top of The Beanstalk. She must complete her quest to recover her glass slipper, but Prince Charming, the Fairy Godmother and Jack’s pregnant cow are all doing their best to get in the way so her mission might not be quite as easy as she thought…Read more
