See How They Run
 
A Lindley Players Production
 
Tuesday 23rd - Saturday 27th October, 7:45pm

Expect two hours of blissfully uncomplicated silliness in this classic farce set in 1944 in the vicarage of Merton-cum-Middlewick. Described as arguably the funniest farce ever written, it's outrageously contrived plot transforms, with madcap energy, a preposterous situation into spiralling chaotic hilarity.

A cast of the Lindley's finest farceurs pile on the misunderstandings, mistaken identities and pratfalls and with it, the laughs.

See How They Run! is an official 'umbrella' event for the Canterbury Festival 2018.

The Madness of George III
by Alan Bennett

Multi-award-winning drama The Madness of George III will be broadcast live to cinemas, in National Theatre Live’s first ever broadcast from Nottingham Playhouse.

Written by one of Britain’s best-loved playwrights Alan Bennett (The History Boys, The Lady in the Van), this epic play was also adapted into a BAFTA Award-winning film following its premiere on stage in 1991.

The cast of this new production includes Olivier Award-winners Mark Gatiss (Sherlock, Wolf Hall, NT Live Coriolanus) in the title role, and Adrian Scarborough (Gavin and Stacey, Upstairs Downstairs, After the Dance).

It’s 1786 and King George III is the most powerful man in the world. But his behaviour is becoming increasingly erratic as he succumbs to fits of lunacy. With the King’s mind unravelling at a dramatic pace, ambitious politicians and the scheming Prince of Wales threaten to undermine the power of the Crown, and expose the fine line between a King and a man.

Following on from their success with Sweeney Todd, One Night at The Playhouse and Avenue Q, Wiley Wolf Productions Ltd return to the Whitstable Playhouse with one mean, green mother of a musical!

A deviously delicious Broadway and Hollywood B Movie musical, LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS has devoured the hearts of theatre goers for over 30 years. Howard Ashman and Alan Menken (Disney's The Little Mermaid, Beauty And The Beast, and Aladdin) are the creative geniuses behind what has become one of the most popular shows in the world.

For the residents of Skid Row, life is full of broken dreams and dead ends. But there’s hope on the horizon for flower shop assistant, Seymour, when he discovers a mysterious new plant with killer potential. This foul-mouthed carnivore promises fame and fortune to the down and out protagonist as long as he keeps feeding it.

Will Seymour discover the true intentions of the plant before it's too late?

Filled with tongue in cheek comedy, toe-tapping musical numbers and puppets, LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS is a night out you won't forget!
