Proof
By DAVID AUBURN
A special bond has existed between Catherine and her brilliant but unstable father, Robert, a famous professor of mathematics. However, the manipulative Claire, her sister, is introduced into the equation, together with Hal, an unexpected suitor. When a mysterious notebook is discovered among Robert’s work, it brings Catherine face to face with her family’s twin legacies of madness and genius. This witty, elegant and tautly written play is one of the most acclaimed of recent years, having won many awards including the Pulitzer Prize and the Tony Award for Best Play in 2001. It should provide a gripping evening of theatre.

Move Over Mrs Markham
By RAY COONEY and JOHN CHAPMAN
The Markhams are looking forward to an evening at the Publisher's dinner. Mr Markham grudgingly agrees the use of their flat to Philip, his business partner, not knowing that Mrs Markham has agreed to lend the flat to Philip's wife for her own use.
Meanwhile, the interior designer currently working at their flat thinks it an ideal opportunity to further his designs on the au pair.
The mayhem this causes is further complicated by the arrival of a straight laced children's author looking for a new publisher.
These ingredients add up to one of Ray Cooney's & John Chapman's best known farces.

Skylight
By DAVID HARE
Kyra, a young, intelligent woman, has been rebuilding her life on her own for the last three years – but two men, father and son, reappear separately from her past. Both have very different reasons for visiting. She appears to have had emotional and disrupting ties with the family. But resolution is never straightforward and finally all three have to deal with the outcome in their own individual way. David Hare’s play brilliantly examines relationships, guilt and insecurity with clarity, compassion and humour.
This play contains strong language.
Directed by JUDY PRICE
