Handbags, hairspray and sensible shoes.

The monarch - Liz.

Her most powerful subject - Maggie.

One believed there was no such thing as society. The other had vowed to serve it.

Over the course of a decade, two of Britain’s most iconic women meet regularly. In private. Sharing their views on what it means to be British and navigating their opposing opinions, do their smiles tell a true story? What actually happened behind those closed doors?

In this comedy, premiered in 2013, Moira Buffini imagines their relationship, and looks at what might have happened when two of the most powerful characters of our time came face-to-face. 

Sharply funny, packed with satirical humour and highly entertaining, Handbagged will make you question what you think you know about the people who lead us. It also features other leading figures of the time, includingRonald and Nancy Reagan, Geoffrey Howe and Denis Thatcher.

'A satire full of mischief and gossip'

The Times

'A clever, funny and charming political comedy'

Guardian

'A smart, sharp play with a witty script that packs in equal amounts of information, speculation and wry commentary about gender roles... delightful'

Evening Standard

'Playful and fiercely funny, whilst deftly tackling serious issues... incredibly witty and poignant'

Broadway World

 

This amateur production is presented by arrangement with NICK HERN BOOKS.

Button Book

Ten strangers are summoned to a remote island. All that the guests have in common is a wicked past they're unwilling to reveal and a secret that will seal their fate. For each has been marked for murder. 

As they wait for their unknown host to arrive, the weather turns and the group is cut off from the mainland. The only record on the island is a piece of jazzy dance music which suddenly transforms itself into a sinister series of accusations of murder against each of the guests and the two servants.

Soon the bloodbath begins and one by one they are brutally murdered in accordance with the lines of a sinister nursery rhyme. As the dwindling survivors frantically try to uncover the murderer before they are killed, they start to look at each other in horror – is the killer one of them?

This amateur production of ‘And Then There Were None’ is presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals Ltd. on behalf of Samuel French Ltd. concordtheatricals.co.uk

Join the Young Players this July for a comedy adaptation of the well known story by Oscar Wilde.

An average American family acquires historic old Canterville Chase – complete with ghost! Sir Simon, the sporting spirit, succeeds in making life miserable. Then the Americans strike back. Pam and Wendy, daughters of the new owners, attack the poor ghost with cans of hairspray and deodorant! Sir Simon feels this is hardly fair, so he enlists the aid of some friends: Hester the Horrid, Lady Joan the Graveless, the Vampire Duchess, and other things that go bump in the night. Life is hectic and fantastically funny around Canterville Chase until the real solution to the problem of the galloping ghost is discovered.

The Miller Centre Young Players (aged 8 to 18) take over the main stage at the Miller for their 10th Summer Production. This year's fun-filled play hs echoes of the BBC comedy series, Ghosts – although Oscar Qilde was there first, having written this story in 1887.


This amateur production of ‘The Canterville Ghost’ is presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals Ltd. on behalf of Samuel French Ltd. concordtheatricals.co.uk

ONE LIFE

Monday 10 June 2024 at 8pm 

Tickets: £5 – on sale now


Button Book

ONE LIFE tells the true story of Sir Nicholas ‘Nicky’ Winton, a young London broker played by Johnny Flynn, who, along with Trevor Chadwick (played by Alex Sharp) and Doreen Warinner (played by Romola Garai) of the British Committee for Refugees in Czechoslovakia, rescued 669 children from the Nazis in the months leading up to World War II,. Nicky visited Prague in December 1938 and found families who had fled the rise of the Nazis in Germany and Austria, living in desperate conditions with little or no shelter and food, and under threat of Nazi invasion. He immediately realised it was a race against time. How many children could he and the team rescue before the borders closed? Fifty years later, it’s 1988 and Nicky (played by Anthony Hopkins) lives haunted by the fate of the children he wasn’t able to bring to safety in England; always blaming himself for not doing more. It’s not until a live BBC television show, ‘That’s Life!’, surprises him by introducing him to some surviving children – now adults – that he finally begins to come to terms with the guilt and grief he had carried for five decades.
