Shirley Valentine - Carol Harvey

The heroine in this actor's tour-de-force is an ordinary middle class English housewife. As she prepares chips and egg for dinner, she ruminates on her life and tells the wall about her husband, her children, her past, and an invitation from a girlfriend to join her on holiday in Greece to search for romance and adventure. Ultimately, Shirley does escape to Greece, has an "adventure" with a local fisherman and decides to stay.

Keen to boost his flagging career, fading Hollywood action hero Jefferson Steele 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.

All seems perfect until William is devastatingly summoned by his mother back to London.

The smash comedy hit of the London and Broadway stages, this much-revived classic from the playwright of Private Lives offers up fussy, cantankerous novelist Charles Condomine, re-married but haunted (literally) by the ghost of his late first wife, the clever and insistent Elvira who is called up by a visiting “happy medium,” one Madame Arcati. As the (worldly and un-) personalities clash, Charles’ current wife, Ruth, is accidentally killed, “passes over,” joins Elvira, and the two “blithe spirits” haunt the hapless Charles into perpetuity.

A stage adaptation of the hugely popular British TV series, which revisits the 1950s and Maplins Holiday Camp with its host of colourful characters.
It's the start of a new season and founder Joe Maplin announces that he is setting up a camp in the Bahamas. He needs female yellowcoats to go and work there and the annual "Miss Yellowcoat" competition will decide who is to go. Rivalry between the girls is fierce, with Sylvia and Gladys joint front runners to win the coveted yellow sash. Camp cleaner Peggy, meanwhile, is thrilled at the prospect of a vacancy for a new yellowcoat and convinces Entertainments Manager Jeffrey that she is the ideal candidate for the job. Ted is forced to employ numerous money-making schemes when his ex wife turns up at the camp with a bailiff in tow and Yvonne and Barry Stuart-Hargreaves send the rumour mill into overdrive when they hear Gladys escorting Jeffrey into his chalet late one evening. Hi-de-hi, campers!

Stage One is pleased to present our first post-lockdown production. It is a broad comic interpretation of Dickens’ A Christmas Carol written by Doug Craig and Adrian Waygood. All the characters of the classic story are there but maybe not quite as you expect them – but the excitement and message of the original tale are still paramount and Scrooge is taken on the journey which will show him the error of his ways. Due to the current restrictions the production will feature only 8 actors although there are some 24 characters so be prepared for some amazing transformations – height, width, gender number of limbs – all no problem to our team of experienced and surgically enhanced actors.

Struggling sculptor Brindsley Miller and his fiancee, Carol, are having a party with the aim of impressing Carol's bombastic father, Colonel Melkett, and millionaire Georg Bamberger. They hope the two men might purchase some of Brindsley's sculptures. Without permission, they have borrowed the furniture and effects of their fussy neighbour, Harold, to make their own flat more presentable. Just before the guests arrive, the main fuse blows, plunging the flat into darkness. What follows is a frantic romp with unexpected visitors, mistaken identities, and surprises lurking in every dark corner! Only we, the audience, can see the action that ensues in the dark. As you might expect, the results are chaotic, disastrous and very funny indeed!

A group of three couples, old friends and all married on the same day in the same chapel, gathers at the Helliwells’ home to celebrate their silver anniversary. When they discover that they are not legally married, each couple initially reacts with proper Victorian horror – what will the neighbours think? – and all three couples find themselves re-evaluating their marriages; hovering closely over the proceedings is the Yorkshire Argus' alcohol-soaked photographer, keen to record the evening's events for posterity, and a wickedly destructive housekeeper who is hoping to use the couples' mortification to her own advantage. In the end, of course, everything turns out well, and the play ends on a happy note.

But not everyone wants to be Daisy’s friend – Sybil and Monica aren’t too keen for such riff-raff to join their prestigious educational establishment. Lines are drawn, enemies are made and soon Daisy is on an adventure to disprove false accusations, search for the hidden treasure that is rumoured to exist, and discover who the mysterious man is seen wandering the grounds. A long running success in London’s West End, Denise Deegan’s comic spoof of 1920s schoolgirl adventure stories is jolly spiffing fun! Come and see it or Matron will send you to your dorm with no tea.

THE KILLING OF SISTER GEORGEThe Killing of Sister George

Directed by: Caroline Harman Smith


June Buckridge (Sister George) - Penelope Cook
Alice 'Childie' McNaught - Jan West
Mrs Mercy Croft - Linda Lythgoe
Madame Xenia - Denise Richards

June Buckridge, famous for her portrayal of Sister George, the district nurse in a rural radio soap, is suffering a dual crisis. Professionally, she is terrified that her character is due for the chop. Domestically, she also worries that she is losing her powerful grip over her long time lodger and probable lover, the child-like Alice. As a result, she becomes increasingly impossible to live with. Relationships are explored through scenes of clown-like comedy juxtaposed with moments of real pathos. There are interventions in the action from Mercy Croft, June's producer at the BBC who has her own private agenda, and Madame Xenia, a clairvoyant from the flat downstairs who offers warnings that all in the future is not looking rosy.

Gustave, Philippe, and Henri – war heroes, all – are plotting an escape. They've had enough of the tortures of their confinement: dictatorial captors, untrustworthy fellow prisoners, and far too many birthday parties. Indeed, life in a retired soldiers' home is almost unbearable! So, while keeping each other company on the back patio, they hatch a plan to escape to Indochina, or at least to a picnic under the poplars on a nearby hill. Winner of London's prestigious Olivier Award for Best New Comedy, Tom Stoppard's adaptation of this French play is playful, bawdy, and heartbreakingly funny.

One by one, they are accused of murder, and one by one they start to die as they succumb to a diabolical avenger. This production is Christie's stage play and is quite different to BBC1's Christmas show.

At the Beauregard Hotel, Bournemouth, in 1953 there is an ensemble of eccentric residential guests who all share one common trait – loneliness. Over a short period, many secrets are discovered. The play is an adaptation by director Chris Ekin-Wood of Terence Rattigan’s provocative, sensitive play that followed the film version giving an emotional evening where four of these guests bared their innermost secrets – and changed each other’s lives forever. Other guests too were also left exposed. The original play had two stars portraying four roles. In this version the four roles were played by different actors working on a multiple set that incorporated Stage One’s theatre features – it promised to be an exciting project.

Desperately trying to get out of a potentially headline-making situation, Richard calls for his PPS, George. However, with a conniving waiter, a suspicious hotel manager, an alert private detective, an angry wife, a furious husband, a bungling secretary, an unconscious nurse and a dead body to deal with, this is not the romantic evening Richard had planned.

When the Navy captain Georg Von Trapp writes to the convent asking for a governess that can handle his seven mischievous children, Maria is given the job. The Captain's wife is dead, and he is often away, and runs the household as strictly as he does the ships he sails on. The children are unhappy and resentful of the governesses that their father keeps hiring, and have managed to run each of them off one by one. When Maria arrives, she is initially met with the same hostility, but her kindness, understanding, and sense of fun soon draws them to her and brings some much-needed joy into all their lives -- including the Captain's. Eventually he and Maria find themselves falling in love, even though Georg is already engaged to a Baroness and Maria is still a postulant. The romance makes them both start questioning the decisions they have made...

The vision of his own headstone and the fact that no one will mourn his death force Scrooge to see the error of his "Bah! Humbug!" attitude towards both life and Christmas.
The primary recipients of Scrooge's moral rebirth are his poor clerk Bob Cratchit and his family, especially the crippled boy Tiny Tim. Scrooge awakens from his illusions and delivers a turkey to the Cratchit household, gives Bob a raise and reconciles with his nephew.

This hilarious Panto puts an interesting twist on an old familiar story, and gives us a Cinderella for the 21st Century. With all your favourite characters including Potty and Dotty, two sisters who will need a lot more than an extreme make-over to make them beautiful, a Baroness who makes Professor Snape (from the Harry Potter movie) look like a nice guy and a Fairy Godmother who, well…, has a bit of a problem!

Late to arrive is Florence Unger who just became separated from her husband. Since she is very tense, they fear that she might commit suicide. As life would have it, the slob Olive and the neat Florence decide to move in together - with hilarious results.

After a one-night stand at a country inn, happily married (but not to one another) George and Doris decide to meet again the next year, and soon they are as committed to their annual weekend together as they are to their own spouses and families. This romantic comedy covers the growth of their friendship and love over the course of a 24-year relationship, and the inevitable changes in their lives and the world around them. Same Time Next Year captures the joy, pain, and humour that typify daily - or annual - human existence.
