The lives of Llareggub’s community are reflected and given voice in an atmospheric, exciting and provocative multi-media production.

All New People

roubled Charlie has decided this is the moment to take his life. Emma, Myron and Kim all have their reasons for being at the beach house: Emma to warm it ready for the Goldbergs,Myron to deliver his selection of ‘Canadian Anti-depressants’ to Emma, and Kim, brought out to cheer Charlie up. So what do you get when an Air Traffic Controller, Real Estate Agent, Fireman and Escort come together in a Long Island Beach House? Apparently, drugs, drink – and a ukulele. Penned by thrice nominated Golden Globe Award and Grammy Award winner, Zach Braff (Scrubs, Garden State etc.), this hilarious comedy was adored by US critics – “Sensationally funny” New York Times – so sit back and prepare to laugh!

Playhouse Creatures

Playhouse Creatures at the Rondo Theatre, Bath  Spring 2019 The year is 1669 a bawdy and troublesome time. Theatres have just reopened after seventeen years of Puritan suppression. There is a surge in dramatic writing and the first English actresses appear on stage. Playhouse Creatures focuses on five of the most famous (Nell Gwyn, Elizabeth Farley, Rebecca Marshall, Doll Common and Mary Betterton) to provide a moving and often comic account of the precarious lives of Restoration actresses.

Going Postal

Portfolio image:
Wed 3 – Sat 6 Jul • 7.30pm • Full £12 Concs £10 • Community Theatre Written by Stephen Briggs Presented by Rondo Theatre Company Moist von Lipwig (and that’s just the beginning), was a con artist, a fraud, a criminal. He was given a choice: certain death or get the Ankh-Morpork Postal Service back in business. It was a tough decision. He’s not alone in his mission – he has a Golem who has been in a hole in the ground for hundreds of years, a man who knows nothing about pins (he knows everything about pins), and Junior Postman Groat (anything but junior) to help him get the mail through! He’s got more than the evil chairman of the Grand Trunk company to fight… and getting a date with Adora Bell Dearheart (she hates it too) would be nice as well.
