It stars the creator of the eccentric Dada art movement, Tristan Tzara, and the communist leader Lenin amongst other luminaries of the time, and is set in Zurich, Switzerland, in 1917.

It's a classic drama, and it's on in the West End from January 2017.
Mark Haddon’s 2003 book of the same name was a monster hit with readers of every age. This is a children’s mystery but it has a wide appeal and thrills adults as much as it excites younger people. The book has been adapted by Simon Stephens to excellent effect to create a production so good it has transferred to the West End, an honour only achieved by the very best.

A star studded cast takes one of Will Shakespeare’s best-loved plays, Twelfth Night, to the West End stage in a production with a big difference. It’s starring comedian and actor Tamsin Greig, and according to Time Out's critic Andrzej Lukowski, "Godwin takes Shakespeare's mistaken identity comedy, spices it up with with a bit of sexual fluidity, then chucks in a bunch of great comedy character actors and leaves them to go nuts."
Starring: Tamsin Greig

Rolling Stone called the musical a "tour de force", "theatre at its finest." This is the wonderful art-house musical written by David Bowie in the months before he died.
