In 1964, Sister Aloysius, a rigid, conservative nun who runs a Catholic school in the Bronx, and Father Flynn, the warm-hearted, liberal priest of the parish, engage in a battle of wills, words, and philosophy. Novice Sister James is caught in the middle when the suspicion arises that Father Flynn’s friendship with the first-ever African-American student at the school might be more than it should be. With her help, Sister Aloysius sets out to teach Father Flynn a lesson, for the sake of the boy. But unexpectedly she, too, is taught an intriguing lesson by the boy’s mother. DOUBT is a forceful and intimate look at the power of suspicion, fear, and intimidation, dealing with a problem that is disturbingly still relevant today.

Poster for Murder on the Nile

A glamorous young heiress and her newly wed husband are honeymooning on a luxury steamer on the Nile. Many of the colourful and elegant guests sharing their voyage are secretly less than pleased to have the bride on board. Tensions mount, tempers flare, and then – murder! Did the jilted fiancée lose her cool? Did the fastidious, love-struck doctor blow his top? Does the maid know more than is good for her? Luckily another guest on board has a nose for detection, but before he can unravel the mystery, there is another murder, and no one knows who to trust...

School Package

Teachers! As a Shakespeare play might be interesting for your classes, we have for your convenience prepared a school package to download again.

Due to rather shockingly bad experience with our younger audience members recently, we have decided to put in a short bit about theatre ettiquette. We don't want to be patronizing, really, but talking, throwing paper, phoning friends and running in and out during the performances is not on! There are real people on stage, theatre is not the cinema, and even there we would find such behaviour despicable.
