When a New England socialite Tracy Lord is busy planning her lavish summer wedding, her ex-husband suddenly reappears out of the blue to try and win her back, threatening to put the wedding at risk. Things get even more complicated when a tabloid reporter arrives to cover the nuptials, and also falls in love with the bride to be. Faced with three possible suitors, who will Tracy choose?

Rob Brydon stars with a cast of 23 young performers in this boisterously funny new play by Tamsin Oglesby about British schooling through the ages. Directed by Matthew Warchus of Matilda fame, we follow a young Afghan refugee Alia, who has radical ideas on how to restore British education to the world leagues. But despite winning a place on the prestigious Britainís Education Research Board due to her prodigious studying skills, will anybody be willing to listen to what a schoolgirl has to suggest?

Eugene O'Neill's seminal play about class divisions comes to the Old Vic this October in a timely exploration of what it means to be human. When Yank (played by Bertie Carvel), a burly and strong stoker on a transatlantic steamer has a run-in with a snobbish heiress, he begins a dark journey of self-exploration and where he belongs in the greater scheme of things. Directed by the eminent Richard Jones of Anna Nicole and Into The Woods fame, this iconic American play is given a new revival in a British theatre.
