Henry V - Lion of England by Nick Hennegan, based on William Shakespeare's classic. Edinburgh Festival, 2018.
news and productions ...
This has been a very weird summer. So was 1997, when our Artistic Director, Nick Hennegan won four awards for his new play 'A Ghost of A Chance'. But he had to deal with a small boy, a TV star, a famous director, a difficult pub and the death of Princess Diana! He kept a stream of consciousness diary - 'How To Make A Crisis Out Of A Drama' and this summer he's been reading extracts on our new YouTube channel.
"... a very exciting Company."

Our acclaimed shows, P.A.L.S. and Romeo and Juliet tranferred from the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, to London. Read some ofthe reviews by clicking on the stars below.
P.A.L.S... The story of Pete, Andy, Linda and Sue (the P.A.L.S.) was a sell-out hit at its workshop in Birmingham. It tells the (true) story of four friends growing up from the 1950's to the 2000's. And the same four actors present Romeo and Juliet - looking at the rivalry between two footballing families. Both shows will be touring soon. Contact us for details.
The acclaimed Edinburgh Festival hit - featuring the voice of Sir Derek Jacobi as Old Hamlet - is now booking for 2021.
