We are trying something new for theatre this Autumn…

Everyone should have access to some of the world’s best theatre. Because of this we have made as much of our theatre as possible this Autumn ‘Pay What You Feel’.

So why not try something new, plan the perfect date night or organise a night out with your friend starting with some theatre?

To encourage everyone to come and see some of the awesome theatre we have coming this Autumn, we have made as many of the performances that we can, “pay what you feel.” All money collected will help us pay the artists who have performed, and therefore hope you will give generously.

Absolutely loved the show? Maybe pay a little more! No need to pay anything until the end of the show

It’s still well worth booking, as some shows will sell out, but there is nothing more to do. We hope to see you there.


The Flop- 19th September

Paris. 1657ish. Impotence is illegal. When a member of the aristocracy is accused of being less than upstanding, his wounded pride leads him towards a monumental and very public flop. But can a cast of total idiots save a show about a flop… from being one?

Creators of Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2016 hit Meet Fred, team up with clown supremos Spymonkey (who brought us The Complete Deaths a couple of years ago!), to present an anarchic, slightly rude, hilarious slice of stupidity, with live music and unfeasibly large wigs.

“Sharp, funny and vastly entertaining” Lyn Gardner (Meet Fred)

Re:Production- 3rd October

Karen & Tom met & married when they were really young. They’re grown-ups now. It’s time to join the club, isn’t it? Their friends are painting the spare room sunset yellow & waking up before midday on Saturdays.

It’s what everyone wants, isn’t it? Flexible working hours, sleepless nights, baby yoga, PTA meetings, toddler football… It’s what they want, isn’t it? Karen is a scientist. She knows the facts. By now she should be ready. But what if she’s not?

User Not Found- 10th October

USER NOT FOUND is about our digital identities after we die. This new play by celebrated company Dante or Die and pioneering writer Chris Goode is performed in Lincoln Drill Hall’s Cafe Bar.

Through smartphones and headphones you become a fly-on-the-wall of one man faced with keeping or deleting. A story of contemporary grief unfolds through this intimate, funny performance that gently interrogates our need for connection.

 A Thing Mislaid- 11th October

Maison Foo blend their trademark style of visual storytelling, clowning and humour, with new experiments in miniature puppetry and live camera.

Travelling through cinematic worlds and surreal realities, A THING MISLAID explores themes of migration, journey and home. A tale of footsteps, hope and an unlikely friendship between two lonely travellers and a mysterious bird.

He Aint Heavy- 25th October

He Aint Heavy is a new show by Oddly Moving Theatre Company and tells the story of Grania, growing up with her disabled autistic brother ‘Sean.’

When people ask me about my brother I usually give them the short answer; he has severe learning disabilities, epilepsy and autism. He Ain’t Heavy is the long answer. As Sean cannot go on a national tour due to a love of routine and no concept of theatre, we are going to bring him into the room in other ways.

“An incredibly poignant and intimate portrayal of sibling love through puppetry and an aerial swing. You have to see Grania in action: she is a highly skilled circus performer, storyteller and connector, lighting up the entire stage.” LucyLovesCircus
