Current shows


Double Double Act

Are children and adults sometimes the same? What does adulthood really mean? And what kind of things do we both find funny?  Made In China have created a show performed with 8-year-olds and adults that playfully explores these questions.

Baby Show

From the makers of Scrunch and Seesaw, this brand new show is a great first trip to theatre for the really young. Time for a walk, better wrap up warm. Poppers, buttons, zips. Scarf, hat, mittens. Inside out, upside down, back to front.

Upcoming shows


Sensacional 2017

Bring your toddler along to a sound and light show in which they are the participants. Watch as your child puts on a white suit and becomes part of a digital world of ladybirds, shapes, squiggles and squarks that won’t keep still.

Laika, the space dog: the first living creature to orbit earth. That was in 1957. Today it's 2057, and Sami lives with his mum. She's an astronaut and she understands that there could be a better future out in space. But Sami's life is down here.

Beowulf

Beowulf is the oldest surviving poem in the English language. This is a new perspective on the seminal text, drawing out connections between the ancient and the modern worlds in this tale of heroism, fear, bravery and anguish in the battle of life.

The Velveteen Rabbit

There once was a Velveteen Rabbit, and in the beginning he was really splendid. He was fat and bunchy, as a Rabbit should be; and for at least 2 hours the Boy loved him.

Boing!

This piece of dance-theatre captures the delirious excitement of two boys waiting for Father Christmas to arrive on the most magical night of the year. There are beds to be jumped on, pillows to be fought with, seas to be sailed.

Wild Life FM

This show is not going to be what you expect. It's not a play. It's not a gig. It's also both of those things. An honest, raw exposition of what it's like being young today. A live radio show on how to discover yourself through music.

Previews from: Friday 12 January 2018
Closes: Saturday 20 January 2018

Seesaw

Being little can be hard work. There are holes to dig, sand castles to make, treasures to find, adventures to be had. It's much easier when you have a friend to help. But what if making friends is hard work too?

Previews from: Friday 26 January 2018
Closes: Sunday 11 March 2018

Othello

Othello, the bold, brash, confident solider, and Desdemona, the beautiful Senator's daughter, are truly in love - but not everyone is happy about it. And that is where the problem begins and tolerance ends.

Previews from: Saturday 3 February 2018
Closes: Saturday 3 March 2018

Beginners

Tells the story of three families trapped in a waterlogged holiday cottage over summer. The children are bored. The adults are down the pub. So far so normal.

Previews from: Tuesday 20 March 2018
Closes: Sunday 15 April 2018

The Iron Man

The Iron Man has been eating every single piece of metal in sight right down to the last rusty nail, destroying farms everywhere. The angry farmers try and trap him, but in the end it's down to a young boy to try and tame the monster.
