Entertaining Angels

As a clergy wife Grace has spent a lifetime on best behaviour. Now, following the death of her husband Bardolph, she is enjoying the new-found freedom of being able to do and say exactly as she pleases. But the return of her eccentric missionary sister, Ruth, together with some disturbing revelations forces Grace to confront the truth of her marriage. Set in a classic English vicarage garden complete with a grass-banked stream and willow, the play is filled with sharp-edged comedy and probing wit.

Arsenic & Old Lace

When Mortimer Brewster visits his sweet spinster aunts to announce his engagement, he makes a shocking discovery about his eccentric family. A gripping and farcical black comedy of kindly aunts and menacing brothers, all with murder in mind, Arsenic and Old Lace is one of the most iconic dramas of the mid-twentieth century.

Comfort and Joy

It's Christmas. Relatives you hardly ever see and who are now very different from you arrive at your house for the festivities. No-one receives a present that is at all appropriate. Culinary disasters abound. Long-buried resentments rear their ugly heads as the alcohol flows and tongues are loosened. Comfort and Joy, Mike Harding's comedy, is painfully — but always amusingly — familiar.

The Lady in the Van

The Lady in the Van tells the mostly true story of Alan Bennett's somewhat strained friendship with Miss Mary Shepherd, a crabby, eccentric, homeless woman whom Bennett befriended in the 1970s, before letting her park her Bedford van in the driveway of his Camden home for three months. She ended up residing there for 15 years.
