The Crown is a biographical story about the reign of Queen Elizabeth II of the United Kingdom.
The Crown evolved out of writer Peter Morgan’s 2006 film The Queen and 2013 stage play The Audience. The Netflix original series will span 60 episodes over six seasons, with 10 one-hour episodes a season, covering the Queen’s entire life.
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

April 1642. Sir John Hotham, Governor of Hull, is charged by Parliament to secure the arsenal at Hull and deny entry to King Charles I. If only it were that simple. With a Royalist siege outside the city walls and the rebellion of the mob within, Civil War seems inevitable and losing his head more than probable.
The Hypocrite is a riotous new comedy from award-winning playwright Richard Bean (One Man, Two Guvnors). Transferring direct from Hull to Stratford-upon-Avon this brand new co-production is directed by Phillip Breen, whose RSC comic credentials include the ‘uproariously enjoyable’ The Merry Wives of Windsor (2012) and the ‘gloriously entertaining’ The Shoemaker’s Holiday (2014) (Daily Telegraph).Book Tickets
