True West by Sam Shepard

Book tickets now


Austin, a successful screenwriter, is working on a movie project for a Hollywood producer, Saul, while house sitting for his mother who is vacationing in Alaska. When his estranged older brother Lee, a drunken petty thief, unexpectedly arrives to stay, the two engage in a lethal battle of wills. Sam Shepard remains one of the most celebrated, prolific and important playwrights of his generation. A coruscatingly funny and violent portrayal of sibling rivalry, True West stands at the forefront of his outstanding body of work.

An Amateur Production in association with Samuel French, Ltd.

Friday 16 February - Saturday 24 February


Our Lady of Sligo by Sebastian Barry

 Book tickets now

From her room in a Dublin cancer ward, Mai looks back across her tempestuous life - her disastrous marriage, the loss of her child, the alcoholism and the hoped-for Ireland that lost its way in all the politics of division. She does so, however, without the least self-pity but rather with a savage quick humour, sparing no-one but the idolised Dada and the motherly Maria, both long-dead, whom she conjures from within her morphine-troubled mind. This is a fast-moving play full of humour, love and the most tender, heart-breaking pathos.

An Amateur Production in association with Independent Talent Group, Ltd.

'Bad Jews' by Joshua Harmon

Book tickets now

“The best comedy of the season” wrote the New York Times, when Bad Jews surfaced off‑Broadway in 2013. “There’s nothing like a death in the family to bring out the worst in people.” Since then the play has had enjoyed a great reception from audiences around the world, not least for its super-charged sense of humour.

In real life, it’s usually painful to watch people behaving badly towards each other. On a theatre stage, it can be enormous fun. This is a play which really piles on the laughs when you might least expect them!


This amateur production of 'Bad Jews' is presented by special arrangement with SAMUEL FRENCH, LTD.
