Agatha Christie’s Go Back For Murder Directed by Norm Caddick
Thursday, 7 to Saturday 9 February at 8 pm. Wednesday, 13 to Saturday 16 February at 8 pm. Matinees both Saturdays at 2 pm
Sixteen years after Caroline Crale is convicted of the murder of her husband, a London solicitor is approached by her daughter Carla Lemarchant claiming that her mother was wrongfully convicted – revealing a letter she received from her mother before her death in prison. Carla has spent those years with relatives in Canada. When Carla and the solicitor embark on some sleuthing, they discover that, on the day of the murder, there were five other people at the house – the ‘five little pigs’ of Christie’s original Poirot novel. The story is told in two time frames: the ‘present’ (the 1940s) and the past, 15 years earlier in the 1930s

This tender-hearted band of Penzance pirates (made up exclusively of orphans unable to harm anyone of similar background) are celebrating Frederic's coming of age and impending release from his apprenticeship to them. He joined the pirates as a child owing to a mistake by Ruth, his nursemaid, who misheard his father's instructions to apprentice him to a pilot. She has remained with Frederic and is desperate to marry him. But, Frederic has met and fallen in love with Mabel whose sisters the pirates have claimed as their future brides. Their father, the General, is horrified at this prospect ... brigands, buccaneers, pretty maids aplenty in this fun-filled romp.

One for the Pot by Ray Cooney. Directed by Sue Wylie
Thursday, 31 Oct to Saturday, 2 November at 8 pm. Wednesday, 6 to Saturday 9 November at 8 pm. Matinees both Saturdays at 2 pm
It shouldn’t be hard to give a pot of money away. In this case, in the 1960s, £10,000 is a fairly big pot. Our hardworking, and rich, hero (Jonathon Hardcastle) wants to give it to the son of his deceased best friend. The problem is that Hardcastle doesn’t know his friend had four sons – and that they were identical quadruplets – and he didn’t expect all four men to arrive on his doorstep at the same time, claiming the money. This is Ray Cooney’s first farce (in collaboration with Tony Hilton) and its original London production ran for four and a half years.
