The Importance of Being Ernest | Sun 24 May 6pm & Mon 25 8pm

Written by Oscar Wilde as ‘A trivial comedy for serious people’ this production focuses on the trivial and comical as intended. Condensed into a theatrical stock cube, the actors have no set roles, minimal costume and set, and precision timing to pull off this hilarious classic before you’d even expect an interval.


Timothy | Sun 24 May 8pm

Timothy is a husband any woman would die for. But when his wife suspects he is plotting to kill her she calls on her two friends to help. Not knowing what to expect, they soon find themselves in a tangled web of accusation, hysteria and cocoa – all on aSunday afternoon.





Nightflyer | Mon 25 May 6pm & Thu 28 8pm

Spook is out cold. His mates can’t even get him on his feet. ‘Is he breathing alright? Don’t wanna be with him if he’s not breathing alright.’ The cold dark streets are spinning and no-one’s seen the Nightflyer.

It’s shots all round!!

Written by American playwright Roy Proctor, these pieces offer audiences a night of twisted tales, absurdity and hilarity with shots! – Chekhov style.


Marky Jay – Comedy Juggler | Wed 27 May 6:30 & 8pm

One man, a camping table, a shiny suitcase… true, funny stories from a life performing – throwing away a normal career and failing to cross roads successfully.

A show approached like a night down the pub, the audience is invited to judge, agree or comment, it’s all life affirming fun.





I don’t want to be Yoko Ono | Thurs 28 6pm & Sat 30 8pm

Two couples struggle to balance feuds and friendship as they tour the country paying tribute to
some of the greatest performers ever to have lived. Needless to say, they fall slightly short of the real thing. Provoked by the discourteous compere they must decide what is more important: career or companionship. With riotous rivalry and hysterical humiliation, on one particular night in Wolverhampton, the conflict of interests reaches its peak. Yet, the show must go on…
