Based on an original new story by J.K. Rowling, Jack Thorne and John Tiffany, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, a new play by Jack Thorne will receive its world premiere in London’s West End at the Palace Theatre this summer.
“It was always difficult being Harry Potter and it isn’t much easier now that he is an overworked employee of the Ministry of Magic, a husband and father of three school-age children.
While Harry grapples with a past that refuses to stay where it belongs, his youngest son Albus must struggle with the weight of a family legacy he never wanted. As past and present fuse ominously, both father and son learn the uncomfortable truth: sometimes, darkness comes from unexpected places.”Book tickets
As the Bennet sisters haplessly search for love in Jane Austen’s ultimate romantic comedy, it is Mr Darcy who unwittingly finds his match.
Pride and Prejudice returns to the Open Air Theatre following a sell-out run in 2013, and features the Olivier Award-winning Matthew Kelly (Of Mice and Men, Educating Rita, Waiting for Godot) and Felicity Montagu (Alan Partridge, Bridget Jones’s Diary, The Durrells) as Mr and Mrs Bennet. Celebrating the legacy of Jane Austen as we approach her bicentennial, the production then tours the UK through until 2017; this is Austen “still dazzling after 200 years” (Observer).

It was the death of Michael Jackson and a lot of cheap beer that cemented their friendship.
From that point on they decided to join comedic forces, spent a week or so coming up with the name ‘Omar & Lee’, and proceeded to make idiots of themselves- even more so than usual…
Self-professed idiots Omar & Lee are on a mission to enlighten and entertain. Join these two hapless goons at one of their anarchic shows as they push their sanity and friendship to the limits.
Flipping the traditional sketch show on it’s head, they present their unique take on things through chaotic character comedy, manic sketches and a healthy dose of clowning.
By holding a mirror up to nature and revealing it for all it’s glorious absurdities, prepare to accept the absurdity of your day to day existence and embrace your inner idiot!Website

Mrs Twit is equally as foul and she hates Mr Twit just as much as Mr Twit hates her.
Directed by Max Webster (The Lorax at The Old Vic), Curve’s mischievous new co-production with Rose Theatre Kingston promises to be just as disgusting and repulsive as earth worms disguised as spaghetti – the perfect Christmas treat for all the family.Book Tickets
