Adults £12


zoom poster
The Vagina Monologues has been translated into over 48 languages and performed in over 140 countries.  The play ran for over 10 years in the UK, France and Mexico.

A staggering number of the world’s most famous and talented women, including Maureen Lipman, Jerry Hall, Kate Winslett and Whoopi Goldberg, have  taken part in the show in New York, Los Angeles and London.

This hilariously witty, and often moving, collection of tales gives voice to a chorus of lusty, outrageous, poignant, brave and thoroughly human stories.

“Ensler breaks taboos by talking, talking and talking some more – stripping fear and shame from what she celebrates here.  It makes for quite a party…..funny, outrageous, emotionally affecting and occasionally angry. The Vagina Monologues confronts words to demystify and disarm them. In so doing, Ensler disarms the audience too” – Associated Press

“Probably the most important piece of political theatre this decade” – New York Times

PLEASE BE AWARE THAT THIS PRODUCTION CONTAINS VERY STRONG LANGUAGE AND SEXUAL CONTENT - UNSUITABLE FOR PERSONS UNDER 16 YEARS.

All Tickets £12

Secret told for the first time in a touching documentary, a must see !

A Charity Fundraiser for The Rifles Museum and the Secret Spitfires Memorial, both based in Salisbury.

Secret Spitfires is the remarkable story of how WWII Spitfire fighter aircraft were built in secret right in the heart of Southern England.

It has taken 75 years for this story to come to light. It tells of how hundreds of girls, boys, women, elderly men and a handful engineers built the iconic fighter plane the Spitfire, in secret, hidden in sheds, depots, garages, barns and even a hotel. So hidden, Hitler’s spies couldn’t find them and have them bombed.

The story starts with Hitler’s determination to destroy Spitfire production and to achieve air superiority as a prelude to invasion. What he and his generals didn’t know was that as they were destroying the main Spitfire factories in Southampton, manufacturing was being moved to secret factories in rural cities, small towns and villages. Three new main centres were set up such as Salisbury, Trowbridge and Reading which in turn were supplied by many other units hidden around the region such as Aldermarston, Chattis Hill, Eastleigh, Henley, Highpost, Hursley, Newbury, Winchester and Worthy Down. They worked alongside Southampton dispersals and the Castle Bromwich shadow factory in Birmingham to produce over 22,000 Spitfires to help win the war. The secret was so well kept, even the family and friends of the workers never knew what they did and where they worked.

'The Germans never knew of these secret factories even though they had spies in the neighbourhood' says Ethem Cetintas, the film’s co-director/producer together with Karl Howman, who discovered the remarkable story by a chance encounter with Gary Roberts, Associate Producer/researcher for the project along with historian and secret factory engineer Norman Parker. To this day, most local inhabitants don’t know what happened, literally on their doorstep.

This documentary demanded to be made to get it on record before no one was left to tell the story first hand. It took three and a half years to research and film and was entirely self-funded.

There will be a Q & A session after the film, in which both Ethem Cetintas (the film director) and  Norman Parker (WW2 Spitfire engineer and historical adviser for the film) will participate.

Famously filmed, this story of a prosperous Edwardian family - mother and three children - forced into near-penury in the rural north of England captures the anxieties and exhilarations of childhood with great tenderness and insight.
As Mike Kenny says of his remarkably faithful adaptation, 'You don't need a real train to perform this play' the most powerful prop is the imagination of the audience, the most effective tool the skill of the actors.'

Mary Anning - The Mad Woman of Lyme

Adults £13
Concession £9

notes: * see conditions


zoom poster
It is 1846,and the little town of Lyme Regis is battered by howling winter-gales. Dying and increasingly dependent on laudanum, Mary Anning reflects on her life. By challenging the status quo and making remarkable strides in a male dominated scientific world, her work threatens to disprove the very foundations she was raised on. Haunted by hallucinations of friends, enemies and even the creatures she spent her life hacking out of the living rock, Anning tries to make sense of her existence in her last moments. AsOne bring their signature blend of narrative, movement, music and striking visuals to tell this story about memory and coming to terms with the past Written for AsOne by Peter John Cooper
Directed by Marta Vella; Produced by AsOne theatre
Project managed by Vikesh Godhwani.

Background of the play -In 2012 AsOne theatre company  toured of a newly commissioned play for the Jurassic Coast Festival and the Olympics;  ‘The Cabinet Maker’s Daughter’. The play told the remarkable story of 19th Century Dorset fossil hunter, Mary Anning. She was the world’s first female palaeontologist who eventually had collectors beating a path to her Lyme Regis fossil depot. These men in turn named the fossils after themselves and Mary’s name receded into the mists of time forgotten. This is a much pacier, played  straight through 80 mins version with a distinct vision from director, Marta Vella. This talented director trained at RADA and under Anne Bogart. She works to create a special piece of resonance. Vella wants audiences to be viscerally  affected by AsOne Ensemble’s  work within the world of the playwright’s story; to feel deeply, as well as understand more, about the world created, and the story told. To do this she works with sharing, crafting, and polishing ideas with her performers. Ideas are cheap but seeded, and fully grown they create very special theatre.  With highly researched, rhythmical writing by Peter John Cooper and multi-media techniques of the AsOne Ensemble - this performance should make you physically tingle!

Adults -£13 (any discounts applied will be deducted at check out)

Takes the audience not just through Tommy's war, but also his life back home in Britain post war. We learn of his experiences in the trenches - fighting on the Somme, at Passchendaele and Loos; and also of the boredom, the loss and indeed the comradeship. Returning to Britain, Tommy shows us how a generation of returning men were maltreated but how ultimately it was his generation that forced through the foundations of the Welfare State.

From the beginning of the Great War to the end of the Second, Private Tommy Atkins was there.
This is his story.
