CORONAVIRUS: currently, all theatres and related venues are closed. Shows are either being cancelled, postponed or rescheduled and we are trying to keep up with all the changes. There are currently few changes after May 2020 and many shows that were due for April have been pushed back towards the end of Autumn. Pantomimes are looking like a safe bet at the moment ;-)


Beyond Belief: Scenes from the Shipman Inquiry archiveThe biggest serial killer in British criminal history, Doctor Harold Shipman, metamorphosed from a caring, committed and respected GP into the 'Doctor Death' of the tabloid headlines, and his tally of victims will never be fully known. In a compelling piece of documentary theatre, Dennis Woolf has skillfully edited verbatim extracts from the transcript of Dame Janet Smith's Inquiry. Whilst the why of the case may never be understood, Woolf illuminates how it was that Shipman got away with so much for so long. Beyond Belief raises all kinds of questions about the trust we place in authority figures, their accountability and how we can avoid such a tragedy happening again.
