The year is 1978, isolated from the mainland, Eric Valentine and Bernard Humphries have been stationed at Echo Point lighthouse, somewhere off the coast of England. The unlikely strangers have just begun to lay down foundations for this odd working relationship when the uncanny occurs.

Renowned international choreographer Ben Wright and musician and writer Stuart Warwick collaborate to bring you bgroup’s most intimate and theatrical production to date.

Point of Echoes is a haunting tale of love, death and monsters, blending the tones of a Wes Anderson movie with the eerie dread of The Twilight Zone.

“Giddy, pensive, vulnerable, uncomfortable, sensual..... mysterious yet playfully alive to the moment.”

Tickets: £12/£10 concessions (plus booking fee)
Click Here to book online.

A one man staging of Milton’s epic Paradise Lost and not like whatever came into your head when you read the first bit of that sentence.

Combining theatre, comedy and movement this is a journey through the story of the creation of everything condensed into 75 minutes.

A show which brings you the highlights of this well known but often forgotten story beginning with Lucifer’s rebellion and ending with Adam and Eve’s expulsion from the garden of Eden. A single man plays all the characters, creates all the scenes and, despite his best efforts, falls a little short of perfection.

Education, Education, Education follows bright but disruptive student Emily Greenslade through the day, as she takes justice into her own hands with far-reaching consequences.
