''The Queen, Shakespeare and Me' is an affectionate musical comedy tribute to a thoroughly modern, fully empowered female role model - a woman who headed up a country and united a commonwealth for more than 70 years, earning respect, admiration and affection from around the world. From the vantage point of her Platinum Jubilee and final year, we see how this colourful, powerful lady head of state defined the postwar era. In this show, Carole Shaw reflects on HM's long life and reveals her 'all' to her people - her undying love for her corgis, the men in her life, her singlehanded success at...

See You In Hell poses the question, “What happens to the manic pixie dream teen when they grow up?”. Alice-India is adorable and it’s exhausting. Utilising charm [reluctantly] and joke writing mastery [gladly] to pull apart the problem of the Quirky Girl and reveal the 3 dimensional person that lies beneath. Tackling queer identity and the “epidemic” of neurodiversity for those caught between Gen Z and Millennial, Alice shares stories from her one and only attempt at an adult relationship, life as an undiagnosed autistic teacher and bone chilling tales from the trenches of being a si...

Life's tough when you literally don't fit in. Pete is the book whose cover you should not judge. Behind the crumpled and ripped dust jacket, is a modern classic. Come let the beat man of Surrey rant his way into your heart. Mark suffers from long-Catholic. He lapsed many moons ago but symptoms keep re-appearing, rather like untreated syphilis. He has been in London for over thirty years on a night out. Various bits of his body have been replaced by doctors, sometimes for the better. He boasts the only wi-fi enabled prostate in the whole of North London. His hobbies are watching telly and wi...
