What's On

An Ideal Husband

By Oscar Wilde

Directed by Lewis Cowen 

Friday 26th January to Saturday 3rd February 2018

Tales of political scandal are nothing new and Oscar Wilde's tale of a highly respected politician, whose murky past comes to light at just the wrong moment, is one of the best of its kind.

Lord Chiltern is a young politician on the way up and is being spoken of as Prime Minister material. He is considered as morally upright as anyone and could be and without a stain on his character. His wife, Mabel considers him an ideal husband.

However, his meteoric rise was not without compromise and his early indiscretion leaves him wide open to blackmail.

Tickets £12/£10 concessions 

Tickets can be purchased from the newly refurbished Devizes Community Hub and Library on Sheep Street, Monday to Friday, 9am-5pm.

Bouncers

A comedy by John Godber

Presented by the students of Stagecoach Performing Arts Trowbridge (aged 15-19 years)

Directed by Lou Cox

Friday 16th & Saturday 17th February 2018

We welcome you to a vision of the eighties nightlife, to stag nights and hen dos, to drunken crying girls and gallons of booze!

We will try to illustrate the sort of thing that happens late at night in every town, when the pubs are shut and the beers been downed.

Set in an East End London nightclub - under the watchful eye of the Bouncers, this laugh out loud play follows a bunch of raucous lads and lasses on a night out in town.

The play will also feature songs and dances from the 1980’s!

Goodnight Mister Tom

A play by David Wood based on a book by Michelle Magorian

Directed by Kim Pearce

Friday 9th March to Saturday 17th March 2018

Now a modern classic, Michelle Magorian’s wonderfully uplifting tale is brought gloriously to life in this magical stage adaptation by David Wood. Set during the dangerous build up to the Second World War, Goodnight Mister Tom follows young William Beech, who is evacuated to the idyllic English countryside and forges a remarkable and heart warming friendship with the elderly recluse, Tom Oakley.  All is perfect until William is suddenly summoned by his mother back to London.

Winner of the Guardian Children’s Fiction Prize and commended for the Carnegie Medal, Goodnight Mister Tom is now a world-wide literary favourite and BAFTA award-winning TV film (starring John Thaw), and continues to inspire audiences and bring generations together.

Hancock & Co

Saturday 14th April 2018

Following James Hurn’s sell-out tour of 2017 he is back by popular demand. On this, his second
visit to the Wharf Theatre, James will be performing a brand-new programme including one 'lost' episode of Hancock’s Half Hour and two episodes he has written himself in the same style as Ray Galton and Alan Simpson, with James voicing the entire cast.

The new show is performed in the style of a radio performance in front of a live audience, bringing
to life the classic days of radio comedy.

“If anyone is out there wondering; does it work, one man doing the whole cast? Are the new scripts up to scratch? Is it like the real thing? The answers are; yes, yes and yes!”

A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum

Music & lyrics by Stephen Sondheim

Directed by Liz Sharman

Friday 27th April to Saturday 5th May 2018

A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum is a fast-paced farce that promises to have audiences rolling on the floor.

Taking straight from the roots of comedy, Forum combines the ancient comedies of Plautus with a vaudevillian delivery. Pseudolus schemes to win the heart of the beautiful virgin, Phelia, for his young master, Hero. In exchange, Hero will grant Pseudolus his freedom once and for all. However, things are never as easy as they seem. Chaos ensues with hair-brained schemes, cases of mistaken identity, slamming doors and convoluted plot twists.

One of the funniest musicals ever written, Forum promises: “Something for everyone: a comedy tonight!”
