When Chicago musicians Joe (Tony Curtis) and Jerry (Jack Lemmon) accidentally witness a gangland shooting, they quickly board a Southbound train to Florida disguised as Josephine and Daphne, the two newest - and homeliest - members of an all girl Jazz Band.
Their cover is perfect until a lovelorn singer (Marilyn Monrie) falls for "Josephine", an ancient playboy (Joe E. Brown) falls for "Daphne", and a mob boss (George Raft) refuses to fall for their hoax!
New Year’s Eve, 1965, London, England.
Just before midnight, as revellers celebrate the beginning of another year, a young woman
enters Marylebone Police Station and confesses to a brutal murder.
She claims to be Mina Harker, the last living survivor of the intrepid group that witnessed
Count Dracula’s destruction 70 years before. But Mina Harker has not been seen since 1901.
And if she was alive, she would be ninety years old.
As Mina confesses to events that are much more terrifying than in the original, she retells
the events of Bram Stoker’s classic novel. She claims it’s the true story. The untold story.
And she must tell it now, before sunrise, before it’s too late, before…
Unfolding on stage as a live graphic novel, Dracula: The Untold Story is a chilling new version
of the classic gothic vampire tale that you thought you knew so well.
Using the latest digital technologies imitating the dog engage with the dark landscape of the
gothic with a renewed energy and political insight.
Fresh from their critically acclaimed adaptations of Heart of Darkness and Night of the Living
Dead TM and 123 years after its publication, imitating the dog take Bram Stoker’s seminal
gothic novel as the starting place for their radical exploration of our fascination with the
most enduring manifestation of evil in literature and cinema.

In today’s disposable world where love is used to sell us everything from plug-in cars to yoghurt… where did real love go?
The latest dance theatre comedy show by groundbreaking performance company, New Art Club, is a joyful, physical and verbal outburst against the forces that masquerade as love.
Mythical love that drives the creation of the universe and everything in it.
Love between friends.
Love between you and the people you love.
It is funny, sad and reflective.
It is not a story but it holds lots of stories inside it. In that way it is like you.
It has a flickering heart that has crashed to earth.
With New Art Club’s dexterous physicality this impossibly big topic is broken open and brought vividly to life.
Cupid’s Revenge is an attempt to bring audiences together in a defiant act of unity and love.

Have your smart phones and tablets ready for a new, born digital dance performance experience that takes place in Neverland. Neverland is a metaphor for today's society and how it plays out online. Neverland: Our Story in Pixels, is loosely inspired by Social Media, Young People's stories of growing up online, digital rights, safeguarding, identity, citizenship and oddly the story of Peter Pan. This hybrid performance experience looks at our sense of reality, looking at reality both online and offline. Is what you see, what you get or are we all trying to live up to a distorted sense of reality? Neverland is a digital world shaped by the voices and imagination of Lauren Tucker and young people she has been engaging with since 2017. By bringing audiences together, we can co- create new memories and collectively share our experience online. Who are you and what do you want to say to the world? Lauren wants to ask young people, parents, teachers and anyone with an interest in developing young people for their futures- how can social media and digital technology be used as a force for good, and enable us to move towards the rainbow we have been chasing and dreaming of, a better society both online and offline. Are we prepared to have conversations with young people to enable positive social media use and to explore its creative potential? It's a serious subject matter, but this experience is not a dark one, it is fun, entertaining and designed with, by and for young people. It is a child friendly show. Recommended audience 9+
As an artist, Lauren aims to actively listen to young people, to advocate for equality, to raise awareness and educate on issues of global concern and social injustice by any media neccessary.

THE GENRE-DEFINING THRILLER FOR ALL TIME.
A brand-new production of the blueprint for the modern thriller, Dial M for Murder is back.
Can you ever get away with the perfect crime?
A brand-new production of the blueprint for the modern thriller, Dial M for Murder is back.
TV and stage favourite, Tom Chambers, (Top Hat, Strictly Come Dancing) stars as the charismatic and manipulative Tony Wendice, a jaded ex-tennis pro who has given it all up for his wife Margot, played by Diana Vickers, West End star (Little Voice), no.1 chart-topping recording artist and The X Factor finalist. When he discovers she has been unfaithful his mind turns to revenge and the pursuit of the ‘perfect crime’.
Made famous by Alfred Hitchcock’s world-renowned film of 1950, the iconic Dial M for Murder will leave you spellbound as Tony becomes more tangled in the web of his own making. Also starring Christopher Harper (Coronation Street), this ultimate masterclass in suspense is guaranteed to entwine you with its spine-chilling twists and turns.
Dial M for Murder is the definitive seat-gripping drama that is not to be missed!
Writer-director Greta Gerwig has crafted a Little Women that draws on both the classic novel and the writings of Louisa May Alcott, and unfolds as the author’s alter ego, Jo March, reflects back and forth on her fictional life.
In Gerwig’s take, the beloved story of the March sisters – four young women each determined to live life on her own terms - is both timeless and timely. Portraying Jo, Meg, Amy, and Beth March, the film stars Saoirse Ronan, Emma Watson, Florence Pugh, Eliza Scanlen, with Timothée Chalamet as their neighbour Laurie, Laura Dern as Marmee, and Meryl Streep as Aunt March.
Behold the tale of UBU who liked power so much he refused to give it back.
