From the creators of Dalloway, Austen’s Women, Female Gothic and I, Elizabeth.

Struggling to think, live and love beyond the stifling expectations of duty, class and convention, governess Jane Eyre and Master Edward Rochester take a dark journey towards sensual and intellectual liberation. Told through Jane’s eyes, English literature’s most celebrated autobiographical novel shocked the Victorians, and Charlotte Brontë’s gothic subversion of fairy-tale romance is now distilled for the stage – under its full title – by writer/director Elton Townend Jones. Performer Rebecca Vaughan embodies everywoman Jane – and several other characters – in this intimate study of love’s realities.

★★★★★ ‘Hands down the best adaptation of Jane Eyre, in any medium.’ (Broadway Baby)

★★★★★ ‘Truly extraordinary… one of the most exciting young performers on the British Stage’ (British Theatre Guide)

★★★★★ ’A theatrical masterpiece' (Edinburgh Guide)

Spanning 30 dramatic years, Di and Viv and Rose is a funny, moving and endearing story of three women who meet at university in the 80s. We follow them from a student house, with a passionate belief in a world of opportunities, to the present day; through the ups and inevitable downs, stretching their relationships with each other to a near breaking point.

Just An Ordinary Lawyer tells the story of Nigerian Tunji Sowande, as he quietly breaks through multiple barriers to become Britain’s first Black judge in 1978.

Also a fine concert singer and keen cricket lover, he muses on international politics and history as they affect the Black world from Africa to the USA and Britain, from the point of view of one who would rather watch sports, and spread love and peace through the medium of song.

Recalling heroic sporting achievements alongside epoch-defining political events

Emily Jane Brontë’s only novel is widely considered one of the greatest works of fiction ever written. Wuthering Heights is a wild, passionate story of the intense and almost demonic love between Catherine Earnshaw and Heathcliff, a foundling adopted by Catherine's father.

After Mr Earnshaw's death, Heathcliff is bullied and humiliated by Catherine's brother Hindley and wrongly believing that his love for Catherine is not reciprocated, leaves Wuthering Heights, only to return years later to exact a terrible revenge for his former miseries.

With live music, multiple characterisation, humour and inventiveness this story is as enjoyably engaging as you would expect in the reliable hands of Hotbuckle!
