In a sunny, happy, optimistic and often absurd 1954, Timothy and Jane graduate from University. Under pressure from their parents they have to find a job and a husband, respectively. Timothy's family send him off to meet a series of influential and increasingly eccentric uncles, while Jane's mother lines up a series of eligible but dull potential husbands. A chance meeting with a tramp brings the couple together as his street piano - named Minnie - gives everyone an irresistible and unstoppable urge to dance. The tramp gives Timothy the job of looking after the piano for a month. Once the month is over and after all kinds of wonderful adventures - including a ride in a flying saucer - Minnie the piano is passed on to a new couple and Timothy and Jane's families are reconciled.Read more

This Easter, Honk! returns to London in a brand-new, seven-person actor-musician egg-stravaganza, filled with puppetry, magic and illusions. And water guns.
This heartwarming reimagining of Hans Christian Andersen’s The Ugly Duckling tells the story of Ugly, a plucky little bird who gets picked on by the other farmyard animals because he’s different. Pushed out of the flock, he embarks on an adventure across the marsh, meeting an array of characters who teach him that it takes all sorts to make a world, and that he is much more than just his fowl looks.
Pipping The Lion King and Mamma Mia to the post to win the 2000 Olivier Award for Best New Musical, Honk! has gone on to perform all around the world, returning to London in its 20th anniversary year.
British writing duo Stiles and Drewe’s other works have exploded around the UK over the last few years and include Mary Poppins, Half a Sixpence and the soon-to-open Wind in the Willows. Seen in London for only the third time since its National Theatre production in 2000, Honk! is guaranteed to put a smile on everyone’s face – no matter how horrendously ugly that smile may be.
Honk! runs at the Union Theatre Tuesday to Saturday at 7:30pm, and Wednesdays, Saturdays and Sundays at 2:30pm.Read more
