Enter the Guardsman

A bitter-sweet musical of marital infidelity, with Janie Dee and

Alexander Hanson on top form as the dissembling couple. David Firman's superb orchestrations - lots of harp and woodwind - add colour to an elegant score in Jeremy Sams's neat production.

Do you come here often?

Seventy minutes of hilarious and surprisingly poignant buffoonery as The Right Size find themselves locked in a spooky bathroom and discover more beard gags than you can shake a rubber duck at. Clamour for a ticket.

The Comedy of Errors

Tim Supple's hit RSC production is wonderfully alive to the terrors lurking behind Shakespeare's double-twins comedy. Adrian Lee provides a thrilling soundtrack, with standout performances from Robert Bowman and Thusita Jayasundera.

Amy's View

Judi Dench's astonishing performance lifts David Hare's over-packed play about art and goodness onto a different plane. You may not cry at the curtain call, but you cannot fail to marvel at her.

Theatre doesn't get any better than this. Go.

Blue Heart

Family values have rarely been more theatrical than in Caryl Churchill's dazzling double-bill which bursts with delights and surprises, doubts and terrors, hopes and dreams. Max Stafford-Clark's startlingly funny production is beautifully acted. Make no mistake, this is the real McCoy.
