THE LAST OF THE HAUSSMANS
By Stephen Beresford
Directed by Julie Cumbo
February 21 – 26 2022
This play offers a funny, savage but touching portrait of a family which has lost its grip. The action takes place over several months, beginning in the height of summer and ending in winter and there are various discussions, problems and rows though it’s playful rather than solemn. Helped by quite a lot of alcohol, revelations emerge as do long-held resentments, all of which Judy tries to smooth over with her ageing hippy outlook. Her idealism clashes with the cynicism and realism of the generation down, her grown-up children Libby and Nick.
It’s a new play, first performed at The National Theatre in 2012 with Julie Walters, Rory Kinnear and the sadly missed Helen McCrory.

THE WOMAN IN WHITE
By Constance Cox, adapted from the novel by Wilkie Collins.
Directed by Eve Manghani

Late one night on a deserted road, Walter Hartright meets a young woman all dressed in white who needs his help. Slowly Walter’s world is enveloped in mystery and secrets. This play is based on the Wilkie Collins novel written in 1859 and is a truly atmospheric Victorian mystery. It is a detective story and a love story, with all the twists and turns one would expect from a modern-day thriller! The action keeps you intrigued all the way to the final scene: there is secrecy behind locked doors.
It is a Gothic Whodunnit, a terrifying tale of good versus evil. When you see this play, your heart will pound with excitement. Who is the woman in white?
