NOT LADY CHATTERLEY’S LOVER 

A parody of LADY CHATTERLEY’S LOVER by DH LAWRENCE

Think The Naked Gun and Airplane! mixed with a steamy costume drama. A laughter-filled parody of the D.H. Lawrence novel.

Lady Chatterley welcomes home her husband, Clifford, from a war that has left the world in tatters. With Clifford’s legs also in tatters, he arrives at Wragby Manor confined to a wheelchair and clutching his secret.

Despite her husband’s impotence, a subject that all struggle to avoid; Constance entertains the idea that one day they could have a child.However, as the couple grow apart Constance falls into a passionate, sexual and curiously experimental affair with estate gamekeeper: Mellors.

Expect long contemplative looks into the middle distance, moments of touching drama, plenty of farce and a gentle stroke of innuendo in this Mel Brooks style parody.

Keeping The Dream Alive is a play written by Rose Cook Monk honouring the iconic Duncan Edwards and the events of the Munich air crash.

This incredible play tells the story of the world’s greatest footballer Duncan Edwards, who tragically died on the 21st February 1958 from injuries sustained in the infamous Munich aircraft disaster which killed eight of the magnificent Busby Babes, the wonderfully talented young Manchester United players, who under the Management of the iconic Matt Busby were the very best of young footballing talent.

This play is sympathetically and carefully penned with the full backing of Duncan's loving family. Revealing details about the disaster that are largely unknown, it tells the personal stories of those closest to Duncan in the wake of the tragedy.

This play features the very best of local talent and the one and only academy award winner Bernard Hill, who is a life long Manchester United fan.

Whether you're a history enthusiast, a football fanatic or just appreciate high quality theatre productions, this is an event you really can't miss.

When the Circus of Horrors started in Glastonbury '95 people thought it wouldn't run for 25 weeks let alone 25 years, yet here we are a quarter of a century later and the Circus of Horrors is still touring all over the World, still getting rave reviews & still getting loads of media coverage.

The show performed for the 4th consecutive year at last years Download Festival and it also returned to the Glastonbury Festival. 

As part of our 25th Anniversary tour it performed with The Damned at The London Palladium, a show promoted by Hammer House of Horrors and was preceded by torch light funeral cortège through London’s West End where a new Guinness World Record was set for over 1040 Vampires in the same pace at the same time. This event sold out within 5 days of going on sale.

The new Circus of Horrors show will be a celebration of the 25 years and will include an amazing phantasmaglorious amalgamation of acts, driven by a rock n roll sound scape, a show that will have you sat on the edge of your seat when not falling off it with laughter.

The almighty cast that stormed into the finals of Britain's Got Talent is now a West End & World Wide Hit. Circus of Horrors will take you on a rock n' roller coaster ride of amazing & Bizarre acts. It is a circus like no other and a show you simply can't afford to miss.

Whether a Rock fan or theatre goer The Circus of Horrors has something for everyone.

Imagine a brilliant rock show combined with amazing, bizarre & dare devil Circus acts, a stella light show and all performed with a forked tongue firmly in each cheek. If Quentin Tarantino had directed Cirque Du Soleil you would be half way there.

SHREK is here in May 2022 - a regional premiere!!

From the award-winning Quarry Bank Musical Theatre Society, everything #goesgreen from 4th - 11th June 2022 - Total of 9 shows to choose from.

Extra dates have been added as this show will sell out exceptionally quickly!

Set in a mythical “once upon a time” sort of land, Shrek the Musical is the story of a hulking green ogre who, after being mocked and feared his entire life by anything that crosses his path, retreats to an ugly green swamp to exist in happy isolation. Suddenly, a gang of homeless fairy-tale characters (Pinocchio, Cinderella, the Three Pigs, you name it) raid his sanctuary, saying they’ve been evicted by the vertically challenged Lord Farquaad.

So Shrek strikes a deal: I’ll get your homes back, if you give me my home back! But when Shrek and Farquaad meet, the Lord strikes a deal of his own: He’ll give the fairy-tale characters their homes back, if Shrek rescues Princess Fiona. Shrek obliges, yet finds something appealing–something strange and different–about this pretty princess. He likes her. A lot. But why does she always run off when the sun sets?

Get these dates in your dairy, and don't mis out on this "Big, Bright, Beautiful World!"
