Much Ado About Nothing
by William Shakespeare, directed by Elodie Foray

“Some Cupid kills with arrows, some with traps.”

The war is over, and everyone is full of giddy relief!

The winning army returns in triumph to Messina, to the gossipy confines of a leisured household, ready to rub shoulders with the locals and celebrate their victories.

Everyone is content, until a malicious plot is contrived to destroy love and publicly shame an innocent girl.

At the same time, Beatrice and Benedick both vehemently denounce love, so naturally, their friends plot to make them fall for each other.

Much Ado About Nothing is a Shakespeare classic, and for good reason!

It has a huge range of emotions; from laugh out loud funny, witty back-and-forths, anger, romance, despair and heartbreak.

There are crossed wires, hidden identities, and hidden feelings. It is a fascinating look at love, status, gender, friendship, and marriage.

This production promises to be colourful, full of life and unapologetically queer!

So, come with an open mind, and an open heart…and prepare to be delighted!”

Dingbats Improv Jam
Join us at the Archway Theatre for an entertaining evening where art meets improv!

Your ideas are the paint, the stage is the canvas, the performers are the brushes, the bits between the scenes are the pot of water in which you wash your brush... I could continue with this analogy, but it's much easier to be literal sometimes:

A variety of improv comedy groups will use drawings and sculptures that you create on the night to inspire improvised games, scenes, stories and maybe even songs!

Turn up at 19:40 when doors open to craft your art! Whether you've won the Turner prize or you've never picked up a pencil, our performers will treat your creations like masterpieces! Perfect for those who prefer their suggestions to be seen, not heard.

This show will also feature some 'jam', where participants of the Dingbats Improv workshops can sign up to play some fun arty improv games in the show.

So don't just picture it, come along to this unique event and turn your sketches into... sketches.

The (cashless) bar in the function room will be open. Suitable for ages 16+Tickets: £10. Online ticket sales only. Ticket sales close 1 hour before the start.

8pm (doors 7.40pm)

Home, I'm Darling
by Laura Wade

This witty and thought-provoking play follows one woman on her quest to become the perfect 1950s housewife.

Judy & Johnny appear to be living the dream, but beneath the gorgeous frocks, vibrant décor and abundance of cocktails, life for the couple isn’t as picturesque as it first seems. Every marriage needs a little fantasy to keep it sparkling, but an unusual life decision raises concerns from their loved ones, and cracks start to form when Johnny invites his new boss over for drinks.

This retro rebrand will leave you deliberating over your Martinis.

Constellations
by Nick Payne, directed by Amanda Dunford
