What's On - Theatre
Upcoming theatre shows at the Theatre...
Following his sell out run at the Edinburgh Festival, former Police Sergeant turned stand-up comedian, and star of BBC Radio 4 ‘It’s a Fair Cop’, Alfie tasers his way through 90 minutes of hilarious and fascinating anecdotes drawn from his eighteen years on the beat.
The Naked Stun is based on the true story of his dogged determination to track down a ‘serial flasher’.
A fast-paced show that twists and turns, exposing the seedier side of crime investigation, before reaching a shocking conclusion.

The Last Station Keeper
The station house at Honeypot Holt is under attack, and not just from the resident bees.
As the summer days drone on, the threat of closure creeps nearer and nearer, as the new high speed link threatens the archaic bumbling ways of the station master and the railway cottage that has stood at the village centre as long as anyone can remember.
A heartfelt and hilarious look at the perils of modern life when the 21st Century 'need for speed' hits the old ways head on....
