Rainforest Dreams

World premier play in partnership with The Green Triangle and Sani Lodge in Ecuador.

” A group of students find themselves transported to the Rainforest, to find they are running for their lives as soon as they arrive. With footage from real indigenous Indians of the Amazonian Rainforest ( especially filmed for this production) we share what happens to the people living with the oil exploration and the illegal logging on an everyday basis. On screen they interact with the students giving a real insight into how they live.  Threatened with their lives will this group of teenagers do the right thing or will they succumb to the illegal loggers and oilmen’s demands? With a real twist at the end it is difficult to guess what direction they will take. ”

All tickets: £5

Blue Electric Wind

Written by Brad Birch

Blue Electric Wind is a newly commissioned play, part of National Theatre Connections programme.

“When people at school start forgetting things, Scott wonders if he’s the only one who’s noticed. He and some of the school’s misfits seem to be the only ones who can see what’s happening. Is it the weather? Is it a virus? They must join forces to try and work out what is causing everyone in town to lose all sense of who they are.”

All tickets £5.00

Honk Jr

“This is the delightful award-winning musical adaptation of the beloved Hans Christian Anderson ugly duckling fable. Ugly looks quite a bit different from his duckling brothers and sisters.  The other animals on the farm are quick to notice and point this out, despite his mother’s protective flapping. Feeling rather foul about himself, the little fowl finds himself on an adventure of self-discovery, all the while unknowingly outwitting a very hungry Cat. Along the way, Ugly meets a whole flock of unique characters and finds out being different is not a bad thing to be.”

 

West Side Story

The Iconic West Side Story, the musical with music by Leonard Bernstein and lyrics by Stephen Sondeim which was inspired by William Shakespeare’s play Romeo & Juliet, is coming to the Pump House in a new adaptation. Set in the Upper West Side of New York City in the mid-1950s , it eplores the rivalry between the Jets & the sharks, two teenage street gangs of different ethnic backgrounds, but with the love story of Maria and Tony at its heart.

The epic musical is one not to be missed.
