Take three witches, a bewildered young man and a rather wicked cat. Mix with a good glug of humour, stir in a dollop of desire. The result? A deliciously dark tale of treachery and enchantment that will leave you spellbound … Gillian Holroyd leads a charmed life. And when her eye falls on the man upstairs, she soon has him under her spell. But the family are far from impressed and get down to some hocus pocus of their own. It’s a war of the warlocks with a hapless human playing mortal in the middle. What begins as an amusing game rapidly becomes more devilishly dangerous. Torn between two worlds, Gillian is forced to answer the age-old question – is love always worth the sacrifice?

Are you afraid of the dark? Wait Until Dark is one of those rare experiences in the theatre, a true thriller that has the potential to make you jump out of your seat. Written for the Broadway stage in 1966 by Dial “M” for Murder scribe Frederick Knott and turned into a film starring Audrey Hepburn in 1967, Wait Until Dark still has the power to horrify us. Woven with secret identities, a seedy drug smuggling ring, murder, and the cruel cat-and-mouse game between a blind woman and the trio of criminals who stalk her, this play possesses a white-knuckle suspense. Wait Until Dark is a slow burn that builds in menace until the gripping climactic confrontation between its protagonist Susy Hendrix and the terrifying Roat. We apologize in advance for the increase in your electric bills when you refuse to turn off your lights after seeing it!

One of the best musical comedies of all time. Guys and Dolls features one of the greatest scores ever written by the legendary Frank Loesser, masterfully witty book and lyrics by Joe Swerling and comedy legend Abe Burrows, and those glorious Damon Runyon characters who have become classics in the world of musical theatre. The plot involves the unlikeliest of romantic pairings: a high rolling gambler and a save-your-soul missionary, a showgirl dreaming of the straight-and-narrow and a crap game manager who is anything but. Place your bet on love conquering all in this hilarious classic that defined Broadway’s Golden Age.
