Morecambe

“A show that will bring sunshine into the lives of all who see it” – Daily Telegraph


Morecambe is a one-man tour-de-force and a night out like no other.  More than just a monologue, Morecambe forms a hilarious and incredibly emotional evocation of a perennial national treasure, taking its audience back to 1984 to join the much-loved comedian for the penultimate stop on his heavenward journey, reminiscing before dancing off into immortality. Eric introduces us to his mother, Sadie, wife Joan and, of course, his friend, partner and number two, Ernie Wise.


Having won a 2009 Scotsman Fringe First Award for “innovation and outstanding new writing”, a subsequent West End production of Morecambe was also awarded the 2010 Laurence Olivier Award for Best Entertainment.

The Darling Buds of May

“A slice of family life that is full of innocence and appeal” – Stage Whispers


The Darling Buds of May tells the story of Ma and Pop Larkin and their six happy children as they lead a quiet, picture-perfick life in the country.  Surrounded by cows, pigs, horses and chickens, the Larkins don’t have a care in the world – until the day they come home and find Mr Charlton waiting to speak to Pop about something very important – a form from the tax office! As the play unfolds there are stolen kisses, lovers’ tiffs, jealous challengers and one or two surprising announcements.


Everyone of a certain age will remember with great fondness David Jason and Pam Ferris charming us all with their Ma and Pop Larkin and who can forget Catherine Zeta-Jones exploding onto our screens as the beautiful temptress Mariette.  This is a TV play with a difference – being an adaptation of his own book, HE Bates retains the depth of character whilst also allowing the audience to experience and remember what they loved about the original show.

An Evening of Talking Heads

“Vivid, wry, psychological X-rays of individuals who don't even know they are being examined” – NY Times


In these compelling pieces, Bennett displays the wry observation, knowing irony and tender understatement that have ensured his rightful place at the forefront of contemporary writing. Each tale gives us privileged access to the innermost thoughts of an individual, who, although we only hear her side of the story, frequently reveals more about herself than intended. The stories are poignant, sometimes sad, occasionally uplifting, and they all showcase Alan Bennett's powers of observation, comic timing and exquisite turn of phrase.


“A Bed Among the Lentils” follows Susan, an unhappy vicar’s wife seeking solace in the arms of the local Asian grocer.  Irene is “A Lady of Letters” whose sharp correspondences create more social ills than they aim to solve.  And there’s Lesley, an aspiring actress who has just been offered “Her Big Chance” playing the adventurous Travis in a new film for the West German market.

Romeo and Juliet

When two lovers are separated and trying to get back to one another, that's fiercely romantic and something you become glued to. – Saoirse Ronan


1974 and the United Kingdom is not so united.  Having recently joined the EEC, we are in the midst of an oil crisis, a three-day week, miners strikes, rising unemployment and growing dissatisfaction.  PM Edward Heath has called a General Election hoping to keep his grip over a divided political climate.


The Capulets are a wealthy Conservative family who are keen supporters of Heath and campaign for him as the election approaches.  Their daughter, Juliet, is an upstanding young girl who will marry well and be an excellent housewife just as her unfulfilled mother is.  The rival Montague family are members of the mining community and proud Labour supporters and are backing Harold Wilson who is promising to end the strikes and bring change to the UK.  


Their son Romeo is detached from society, politics and community as he drifts through the city listening to David Bowie, embracing androgyny and dreaming of love.  Juliet sees him as the antithesis to the world she’s used to as he offers her a new, exciting and romantic outlook.  Life will never be the same again as Grove Park Theatre presents to you this classic tale of theatre’s most famous star-cross’d lovers.


This amateur production of Romeo and Juliet is an original concept by Grove Park Theatre
