As You Like it

Until March 5, 2016

Stage favourite Rosalie Craig (The Light Princess, NT) heads up a talented cast in Shakespeare's comedy As You Like It, playing the lead role of Rosalind. One of Shakespeare's most enduring and popular comedies, As You Like it combines cross-dressing, satire and intellect in a story of love, justice and court life. Famed for originating the phrase "All the world's a stage", this is also a musical comedy, featuring more songs in this one work than the rest of the Bard's plays put together.

November 27, 2015-January 31, 2016

This brand-new musical from the National Theatre sees a young tween pulled into a radical virtual world inspired by Lewis Carroll's iconic Alice in Wonderland. Music is supplied by Gorrilaz founder and Blur's Damon Albarn with the book and lyrics Moira Buffini of Tamara Drewe and Handbagged fame. When a bullied girl seeks escape online, she meets an eclectic host of characters who seem strangely familiar. In, Aly becomes brave and bold Alice, and discovers a different, more fearless side to herself that she never dreamed possible.

Les Blancs

March 22-May 4, 2016

Lorraine Hansberry (A Raisin In The Sun) considered this 1970 work to be her most important. Set in the end days of colony, an African man who was schooled in Western Europe must return to his home country to attend the funeral of his father - who happened to be a revolutionary activist. But when he arrives he finds himself torn between the struggles of his family and fellow citizens, and the life he has become accustomed to in the West. When he is asked to step into his father's shoes, he faces a stark choice - to lead the insurgency against the colonial powers, or to return home and leave his family to their fate.
