The Crucible: This gripping drama exposes what happens in a small, tight-knit community when personal grievances collide with lust and superstition, fuelling widespread hysteria. Miller’s timeless parable attacks the evils of the terrifying power of lies and false accusations and its depiction of bigotry and deceit is a timely parable of our contemporary society.
Wednesday 27th to Saturday 30th September, 7.30pm
Tickets: Full £11 and Concession £9

‘Owbeon is delighted to welcome “Second Soprano” to the stage of the Little Theatre on Sunday 10 July at 7.00. This “little gem of a show” has been very successful in London, earning 5-star reviews and is now touring. It is a poignant tale presented by two women who play a multitude of characters. Set in 1914 it tells the story of two sisters torn apart by historic events and of the nurses and entertainers who served in World War 1.
A Bristol Old Vic Theatre School production of William Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night’s Dream is an ageless celebration of love consummated and fertile imaginings. Hermia loves Lysander and Helena loves Demetrius – but Demetrius is supposed to be marrying Hermia… When the Establishment tries to intervene, the lovers take refuge in the woods and wander into the midst of a dispute between the king and queen of the fairies. Shakespeare put some of his most dazzling dramatic poetry at the service of this teasing, glittering, hilarious and amazingly inventive play, whose seriousness is only fleetingly glimpsed beneath its dreamlike surface.
