13th April 2017
One week until The Knack opens! The rehearsal process has been fast, challenging, and, most importantly, fun! We’re really excited about this hilarious ironic comedy from the 60s. It’s second wave feminism that’s still very much relevant today…with all the humour of A Hard Day’s Night or The Monkees.
It’s mods and rockers, girls and boys in mid-sixties London. Country girl Nancy has just got off the bus in London and has gotten lost trying to find the YWCA. Meanwhile, nervous schoolteacher Colin begs his cool (misogynistic) housemate Tolen to help him find ‘the knack’ to picking up girls, and Colin’s eccentric new lodger, Tom, tries to break up the whole thing and get Colin to see how absurd and animalistic Tolen’s ways are. When Nancy stumbles into the boys’ flat, chaos and hilarity ensues! With Colin and Tolen treating Nancy like the object of a game, it’s up to her to find a way to set things straight…
Come see The Knack on 20th, 21st, or 22nd April at 7:30pm at the CornerHOUSE in Surbiton. Book your tickets now at email@example.com https://www.facebook.com/events/1373994959334116/

16th November 2016
Our production of MCMXVI was a great success. Audience members found themselves thinking on it for days afterwards. Many told us incredibly poignant stories about family members in the war that the production reminded them of. We couldn’t ask for a better response to our work – thank you so much to all involved, all who helped, and all who came to watch.
11th September 2016
After two brilliant rounds of auditions, our upcoming production of MCMXVI is now cast! It is really shaping up to be a full and moving evening of theatre, poetry, and music. We look forward to seeing the Kingston community come together for this commemoration of the centenary of the Battle of the Somme. MCMXVI will be performed at the John Bunyan Baptist Church in Kingston on the 10th, 11th, and 12th November in honour of Armistice Day.
3rd September 2016
It’s September already, and we’re gearing up for our final performance of 2016: mcmxvi (1916). Auditions are tomorrow, and we’re really looking forward to it. This is a multimedia project, which will be performed in November, and will commemorate the Battle of the Somme 100 years ago in 1916. There will be a particular focus on our Kingston community and its place in the First World War.
Please see the audition information below, and we hope to see you there tomorrow and/or at the show in November!
