  • Crimes on the Coast

    New Old Friends present 'Crimes On the Coast'

    By Feargus Woods Dunlop, directed by James Farrell

    A secluded island hotel just off the English coast becomes a crime scene, as a scandal-inducing femme-fatale is felled. All the guests on the island are suspects, but are they alone and is all quite what it seems?

    Multi-award-winning theatre company New Old Friends present Crimes On the Coast, a comedy thriller directed by James Farrell (Associate Director - The 39 Steps, West End). The show enjoyed a sell-out national tour in 2018 (under previous title Crimes Under the Sun) and hits the road again in 2019 featuring four actors playing multiple outrageous characters, and a plot that romps along in the company’s trademark inventive style.

    Inspired by Agatha Christie, Noel Coward and PG Wodehouse, you are invited on an hilarious but murderous trip to a classic English Riviera retreat.

  • Private Peaceful

    09 October 2019 All Day

    Divided by love. United by war.

    “I’ve had nearly eighteen years of yesterdays and tomorrows,and tonight I must remember as many of them as I can.Tonight, more than any other night of my life, I want to feel alive!”

    Private Peaceful relives the life of Private Tommo Peaceful, a young First World War soldier awaiting the firing squad at dawn. During the night, he looks back at his short but joyful past: his exciting first days at school; the accident in the forest that killed his father; his adventures with Molly, the love of his life; and the battles and injustices of war that brought him to the front line. 

    Winner of the Blue Peter 'Book of the Year' Award, Private Peaceful is "as moving as the poetry of Wilfred Owen and as painfully memorable as white-hot shrapnel..."(The Sunday Herald). 

    Recommended age 8+

  • Milton Jones in Milton: Impossible – Warm Up Show

    14 October 2019 8:00pm

    One man. One Mission. Is it possible? No, not really.

    Milton reveals the truth about being an international spy, before being given a disappointing new identity which forced him to appear on Mock the Week and Live at the Apollo.

    But this is also a love story with the twist, or at least a really bad sprain.

    Just gloriously daft nonsense or is there a deeper meaning? Every man has his price. Sainsburys, where good food costs less.

    “He’s fast, absurd and very Funny”  Radio Times

    “No-one can touch Jones when he hits his stride”  The Guardian

  • The Snow Queen

    16 November 2019 All Day

    Join us this November and December as we bring Hans Christian Andersen’s classic tale The Snow Queen to The Old Rep stage.

    This adaptation of the magical adventure follows inseparable friends Kai and Gerda.  When the heartless Snow Queen steals Kai to help rebuild her broken treasure, can Gerda rescue him in time before she plunges the world into an eternal winter? With the help of an unlikely band of companions, Gerda travels to the Kingdom of Ice to confront the Snow Queen and rescue her friend.

    From the creative team behind last year’s Pinocchio, comes a seasonal adventure for the entire family. With an epic original score, spellbinding storytelling, and more than a pinch of Christmas magic, this thrilling re-imagining of Hans Christian Andersen's classic fable promises to be a fairy-tale you won’t want to miss this Christmas.

    BSL performance - Friday 22 November, 1.30pm                                                                                                                                                                                                                      BSL & Relaxed performance - Saturday 14 December, 1.30pm
