The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night Time

Christopher Boone is 15 years old and lives in the English town of Swindon, located about 100 miles west of London. He is extremely curious, an excellent mathematics student, and has an extraordinary ability to observe and retain highly detailed information about any situation he finds himself in. Christopher lives with his father, Ed, and shares a close bond with his teacher, Siobhan, who encourages him to keep a written journal of his thoughts and activities, which they read aloud together as the play progresses. As a young person on the autism spectrum, certain social situations can be challenging or confusing for Christopher to navigate, and his work with Siobhan helps him express and process his unique perspective on the world around him.


Greg brings home a dog he found in the park bearing only the name “Sylvia” on her name tag. A street-smart mixture of Lab and Poodle, Sylvia becomes a major bone of contention between husband and wife. She offers Greg an escape from the frustrations of this job and the unknowns of middle age. To Kate, Sylvia becomes a rival for affection. And Sylvia thinks Kate just doesn’t understand the relationship between man and dog. The marriage is put in serious jeopardy until, after a series of hilarious and touching complications, Greg and Kate learn to compromise, and Sylvia becomes a valued part of their lives.

A Tomb With A View

“A Tomb With A View” is set in an as-sinister-an-old-library as one is likely to come across, presided over by a portrait of a grim faced, mad-eyed, old man. There, a dusty, lawyer reads a Will, involving some millions of pounds, to an equally sinister family – one member of which has werewolf tendencies, another wanders around in a toga and a third member is a gentle, old lady who plants more than seeds in her flower beds.

By the third act, there are more corpses than live members left in the show, with no two dying alike! And what about the sympathetic nurse and the author of romantic novels? Are they all, or more than, they seem to be? All is revealed as the plot twists and turns to its surprising conclusion.

Agnes of God

Summoned to a convent, Dr. Martha Livingstone, a court-appointed psychiatrist, is charged with assessing the sanity of a novitiate accused of murdering her new-born. Mother Miriam Ruth, the Mother Superior of the convent, is determined to keeps young Sister Agnes from the doctor, further arousing Dr Livingstone’s suspicions. Who killed the infant, and who fathered the tiny victim? Livingstone’s questions force all three women to re-examine the meaning of faith and the power of love, leading to a dramatic, emotionally charged and compelling climax.

Mr Bailey’s Minder

Mr. Bailey’s Minder is a funny and deeply moving play about family, friendship, forgiveness, ego, art and the secret longing for a better life.

Leo Bailey is Australia’s greatest living artist, burned out by booze, he has sunk into alcoholic dementia and is incapable of looking after himself.

His detached daughter Margo has been through a string of live-in-minders for him, until she comes across Therese, fresh out of prison and desperate for a job and a place to call home.

Then comes along Karl, a kind-spirited handyman.

Let’s see how these four damaged souls struggle to accept their own and each other’s demons with hope and often humour, but can they all sustain the journey?


Serge buys an expensive painting – white lines on a white canvas.

To Marc, the painting is a joke. Yvan is on the fence. Battle lines are drawn, and the trio use the ‘‘art’’ to settle scores and push their 15 year old friendship to the limit.

Phantom Call

This is a rags-to-riches tale, which begins with a séance attended by an unsuspecting group of very amateur spiritualists and one very sceptic and unwilling participant.

Imagine receiving horseracing tips from “the other side” which actually prove to be on the money.
This is an entertaining and very funny romp, which perhaps uncovers a different side to each of their personalities.
More importantly how does a “hair artiste” have inside information about the Sydney race industry and will it affect life as we know it?

Absurd Person Singular

This is one of Ayckbourn’s most often-performed plays: a comedy that follows the changing fortunes of three married couples. We visit the homes of each of the couples on successive Christmas Eves, where we experience all kinds of domestic disasters and absurdities. In the first year in an attempt to climb the social ladder, the lower-class Hopcrofts host their bank manager and his wife (the Brewster-Wrights), and their architect neighbour, Geoffrey Jackson with his suicidal wife, Eva. Havoc ensues at this festive drinks party, which they hoped would impress their high-powered friends – but that’s nothing compared to what happens at the next two Christmases when the friends return the Hopcrofts’ hospitality!
