Dennis Potter's acclaimed television play - though the most straight forward and realistic of his popular works - is both hilarious and an incredibly moving story. Through the simple act of using adults in the roles, Potter was able to emphasise the darker aspects of children's innocence and imagination, creating an altogether more complex and ambivalent picture of that "Land of lost content". On an idyllic summer afternoon in 1943, a group of children play in the West Country hills, fields and forests. With no adults around, they indulge in spontaneous games and horseplay - sometimes echoing the distant war, at other times revealing their own insecurities and petty vindictiveness. But as they tease, fantasise and fight the day away, their innocence is about to be destroyed forever.

Tickets £10 (£8 concessions). Early bird discount is available until 5th September 2021

Blokes of a Feather
in aid of Children's Mental Health Charity Visyon

NB You will be required to provide evidence of a full double covid vaccination, a negative covid test in the previous 48 hours, or a positive PCR test in the previous 6 months

An evening with award winning script writers Laurence Marks and Maurice Gran.
Anecdotes - Indiscretions - Revelations - Insights
Forty years ago, Laurence Marks and Maurice Gran gave up their day jobs to become full-time comedy writers: their 40-year mission, to make millions laugh. The following decades took them from Borehamwood to Pinewood via Hollywood.
They created a hatful of hit TV shows, including Shine On Harvey Moon, The New Statesman, Love Hurts, Goodnight Sweetheart, and of course Birds of a Feather.

Along the way they won two BAFTAs and an Emmy, and founded Alomo Productions, one of the most successful TV production companies of the 1990s.
In the 21st century, Lo and Mo also found time to write for radio, theatre and the musical stage; Dreamboats and Petticoats, their first musical, was nominated for an Olivier Award. Currently they are working on several new musicals, and a memoir.
Despite all this, they’ve decided to go on the road to share their memories of a remarkable career, and of the famous and infamous personalities they’ve fought with along the way, including Frankie Howerd, Adam Faith, Zoe Wanamaker, Kate Winslet, Ray Winstone, Rik Mayall, Nick Lyndhurst, Warren Mitchell, Henry Winkler, Michael Winner, Michael Caine, Roger Moore, Cilla Black, and of course the birds of a feather, Linda, Pauline and Lesley.

Blokes of a Feather will provide a highly entertaining evening in the theatre…though we’re willing to do afternoons if the audience wants an early night. There will be anecdotes, revelations, indiscretions, insights and lots of laughter, and plenty of classic video clips from their enormous back catalogue (Oooh, missus, as Frankie Howerd would have said).
