The Divide Poster

The Divide

January 30 - February 10, 2018

Alan Ayckbourn returns this year with the playwright's most formidable work, The Divide. Told over two parts, we're transported to an England, one hundred years hence, where a catastrophic plague has ravaged the population, leading to a forced segregation between the sexes. In a dystopian landscape Orwell would be proud of, love blooms between a young man and woman, despite the fateful consequences of direct contact.

Fanny and Alexander Poster

Fanny and Alexander

February 21 - April 14, 2018

This brand-new work sees the celebrated movie by Ingmar Bergman translated to the London stage by Stephen Beresford, and directed by Max Webster. Focusing on two siblings whose idyllic family existence is shattered with the death of their father, the titular pair and their loving mother have a struggle for happiness when she is forced to marry a strict bishop. A touching portrayal of family upheaval and the sanctity of childhood.

Mood Music Poster

Mood Music

April 21 - June 16, 2018

Hot on the heels of his acclaimed performance as Scrooge over the 2017 festive period, Rhys Ifans returns to the Old Vic to lead this world premiere play from the man behind Sunny Afternoon and Blue/Orange. Scratching beneath the glitz and glamour of the music industry, Mood Music is a witty portrait of the 'biz and the strange people you discover there.

A Monster Calls Poster

A Monster Calls

July 7 - August 25, 2018

Thirteen-year-old Connor and his mum have been just fine since Connor's father moved to America, but now his mum is terribly sick and isn't getting any better. Throw in a paid of over-bearing Grandparents and some bullish school kids and Connor feels all alone, alone until he meets the monster of course.

Sylvia Poster


September 1 - 22, 2018

One of the icons of the Suffragette movement and proto-feminist, Sylvia Pankhurst, gets the musical treatment in this fresh new piece from Katy Prince and Priya Parmar. Using an eclectic mix of song, dance, hip-hop, funk and soul, her incredible drive and advocacy for universal suffrage and the life behind the public figure are examined for a new generation.
