Surprising everyone - including its own composers - by pipping _The Lion King_ and _Mamma Mia_ to the post to win the 2000 Olivier Award for Best New Musical, *Honk!* has gone on to receive over 8,000 productions around the world. British writing duo Stiles and Drewe’s other works have exploded around the UK in recent years and include West End smash-hits _Half a Sixpence, Mary Poppins_ and _The Wind in the Willows_ at the London Palladium. *Honk!* is guaranteed to put a smile on everyone’s face - no matter how fowl that smile may be! *Honk!* is produced by Dot By Dot Productions, directed by Andy Room, with Oli Rew as musical director, and choreography by Lily Howkins.

My Beautiful Launderette Nikolai Foster brings Hanif Kureishi’s iconic and Oscar-nominated screenplay *My Beautiful Laundrette* to the stage. This bold new production of Kureishi’s ground-breaking film, co-produced with Curve, Everyman Theatre Cheltenham and Leeds Playhouse, explores issues of sexuality, cultural conflict, gender equality, class and generational strife, presented against a funky backdrop of 80s music and culture. Set in London during the Thatcher years, *My Beautiful Laundrette* tells the story of young British Pakistani, Omar, who transforms his Uncle’s run-down laundrette into a thriving business. After being confronted by a fascist gang, Omar recognises school-friend Johnny and uses their history to diffuse the situation. As they renovate the laundrette together, love blossoms between them. This culture clash comedy is also a subversive work of social realism, sprinkled with magic and joy running through the rich veins of Kureishi’s writing. If you enjoyed our previous co-productions with Curve of _Pink Sari Revolution_ and Ishy Din's _Wipers_ this play is for you. Age recommendation: 15+ This production contains strong language and adult themes including violence and racism. ]]>

Swan Lake The Russian State Ballet and Opera House is back for its annual UK tour with spellbinding, lavish, full-production touring ballet featuring a live Orchestra with over 30 musicians. One hundred and thirty-five years ago audiences heard *Swan Lake* by the great Russian composer Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky for the very first time. From that moment on, the world of ballet would never be the same. *Swan Lake* is a tale of two young women, Odette and Odile, who resemble each other so strikingly that one can easily be mistaken for the other. It is the compelling legend of a tragic romance in which a princess, Odette, is turned into a swan by an evil curse. Prince Siegfried chances upon a flock of swans while out hunting. When one of the swans turns into a beautiful young woman he is instantly captivated – will his love prove strong enough to break the evil spell that she is under? From the opulent splendour of the palace ballroom to the moonlit lake where majestic swans glide in perfect formation, this compelling tale of tragic romance has it all. *Swan Lake *captures, like no other ballet, the full range of human emotions – from hope to despair, from terror to tenderness, from melancholy to ecstasy. A wonderful evening out, the memories of which you will cherish long after the final curtain falls.
