A Visit from Miss Prothero & An Englishman Abroad by Alan Bennett
Directed by Jenny Hobson

A VISIT FROM MISS PROTHERO
Recently retired, widower Arthur Dodsworth is living quietly and relatively happily with his memories and in the company of his budgie Millie.  Happily, that is, until he has an unwelcome visitor in the shape of his ex-secretary Miss Prothero - a vindictive woman who takes pride in putting people down.

Characteristically Alan Bennett uses a fusion of humour and pathos to turn our laughter to tears in a short but compelling piece of theatre.

• Arthur Dodsworth: mid sixties

Handbagged by Moira Buffini
Directed by Ben Clare

Moira Buffini’s Olivier Award-winning 2013 West End play Handbagged takes us back to the 1980s and imagines the drama that takes place at the weekly meetings at the palace between Queen Elizabeth II and Margaret Thatcher. Both sharp-witted and straight-talking, it’s no surprise that they didn’t always see eye to eye.

The play is wonderfully theatrical and reminds us of an incredible period in British history. It’s a funny and insightful play, which also highlights what it’s like to be a woman in power surrounded by men, featuring fantastic meaty roles.

Wolf Hall & Bring up the Bodies by Hilary Mantel, adapted by Mike Poulton
Directed by Sally Halsey

Adapted from the two novels of the same name by Hilary Mantel, these two stand-alone plays were originally produced by the RSC in 2013 and transferred to the West End in 2014.  To date, we are the only company (professional or amateur) other than the RSC to attempt performing both plays together.
