Mojo was the first big hit for the playwright, Jez Butterworth, before he went onto write Jerusalem and The Ferryman and, in its own right, has become a classic of modern theatre.
The story is set in the gangland London of the late 1950s. Ezra’s night club has been hit by a rival gang and the boss is nowhere to be found. They’re at war over a pop singer named Silver Johnny. It’s a wickedly dark and comic tale that has been frequently revived on the West end stage. Katie Milward, the director is choosing to cross cast some of the male characters so if you want to be part of this November production, don’t let anything stop you coming along to the auditions. We’d love to see you!

Jill and Ollie are as upbeat and perky as presenters on daytime TV, the kind of show where eager eyes and electrified smiles are mandatory.
This charming young couple has been chosen by pure chance (or perhaps by design) by a government representative, Miss Dee, in order to participate in a wonderful new programme that bears the aspirational title of “Social Regeneration Through the Creation of Dream Homes”.

“If there’s a better comedy in the English language than Oscar Wilde’s The Importance of Being Earnest, well then I’ve never heard of it” quipped Noel Coward when he was congratulated on American TV for being “better than Mr Wilde”. Well whether Coward meant it as a bon mot or not, it’s certainly very true. We sort of all know the play and that must be a testament to its enduring charm. We can quote bits from it of course – “to lose once parent Mr Worthing may be regarded as a misfortune; to lose both looks like carelessness…” or “All women become like their mothers — that is their tragedy. No man does — that is his…” and inevitably “A handbag?…” A bit like Hamlet, this is a script stuffed with quotable quotes.

‘Constellations’ is a multi-award winning play revolving around the idea that we are all apart of a universe in which at any moment several different outcomes can exist simultaneously. The two characters meet in a variety of scenes, showing different ways in which their encounters could have turned out as a result of factors ranging from previous relationships to the tone of voice used. The key with this play is the interaction and chemistry between the two characters. It really draws the audience in, making you think about how you approach conversations every single day without realising how heavily this affects the outcome of the conversation, or even the relationship.
