Our acclaimed shows, P.A.L.S. and Romeo and Juliet tranferred from the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, to London. Read the 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.
