Around the World in 80 Days

8th June 2019 to 15th June 2019

Caxton Theatre Main Stage

Director:Gemma Dodds

Writer:Jules Verne adapted by Laura Eason


The fabulously wealthy Victorian gentleman Phileas Fogg wagers his life's fortune that he can circumnavigate the globe in just 80 days. Along with his hapless valet, Passeportout, he sets out on a dazzling escapade that takes him from the misty alleys of London to the subcontinent and on to the Wild West as they race against the clock on a dizzying succession of trains, steamers, wind-propelled sleighs and elephants. Packing in more than 50 unforgettable characters, this production is going to achieve this with just five actors! **Please be aware we have a NO REFUNDS POLICY on our tickets** *You will not receive your tickets in the post or a confirmation email, ensure you print out the confirmation page for your records*

Decision Height

20th July 2019 to 27th July 2019

Caxton Theatre Main Stage

Director:Debbie Shepherd

Writer:Meredith Dayna Levy


It’s November 1943 at Avenger Fields Campus. We see the arrival of the incoming class of 44-W-4 at the Women Airforce Service Pilots training base. We follow the women over a period of 6 months as they train endeavouring to achieve their ‘wings’. They all come together from different areas, backgrounds and of all ages. Their lives will be turned upside down as they experience life in a very different way. The development of each individual character is of the upper most importance. They have to show their experiences of fear, loneliness, hate, stress, anxiety but then again they need to express excitement, courage, warmth, love and tenderness. Their journey is unique, showing how their feelings for one another change with time. How along the way there is also joy during such a turbulent, horrendous period of time and also heartaches, taking them from strangers to family over an unforgettable 6 months in their lives. The play will be staged in a very minimalistic yet dramatic way involving lighting, projection and fabulous war time music. **Please be aware we have a NO REFUNDS POLICY on our tickets** *You will not receive your tickets in the post or a confirmation email, ensure you print out the confirmation page for your records*

Boudica

7th September 2019 to 14th September 2019

Caxton Theatre Main Stage

Director:John Ferguson

Writer:Tristan Bernays


Boudica Synopsis A brand-new ancient-history play in verse that tells the story of one of Britain's most iconic women: a queen, a warrior and a rebel. AD 61, Britannia. On the furthest outreaches of the Roman Empire – at the very edge of the known world – rebellion is brewing. The King of the Iceni has died and his widow, Boudica, has tried to claim her rightful throne. For her insolence in defying Rome, the queen has been flogged, her daughters have been raped, and they have been banished from their homeland. But now, Queen Boudica has returned. And this time she has an army. She will have revenge. She will have blood. She will make Rome quake in fear. Boudica by Tristan Bernays premiered at Shakespeare’s Globe, London, in September 2017. **Please be aware we have a NO REFUNDS POLICY on our tickets** *You will not receive your tickets in the post or a confirmation email, ensure you print out the confirmation page for your records*

A Bunch of Amateurs

Caxton Theatre Main Stage

Director:Debra West

Writer:Ian Hislop and Nick Newman


Keen to boost his flagging career, fading Hollywood action hero Jefferson Steel arrives in England to play King Lear in Stratford – only to find that this is not the birthplace of the Bard, but a sleepy Suffolk village. And instead of Kenneth Branagh and Dame Judi Dench, the cast are a bunch of amateurs trying to save their theatre from developers. Jefferson’s monstrous ego, vanity and insecurity are tested to the limit by the enthusiastic am-dram thespians. As acting worlds collide and Jefferson’s career implodes, he discovers some truths about himself – along with his inner Lear! **Please be aware we have a NO REFUNDS POLICY on our tickets** *You will not receive your tickets in the post or a confirmation email, ensure you print out the confirmation page for your records*
