2018/2019 Season

The Turn of the Screw


Thursday 7th February 2019

"Nobody but me, till now, has ever heard. It's beyond
everything. Nothing at all that I know touches it."

New for 2018, we're proud to present a brand new
adaptation of Henry James' disturbing story of
horror and corruption.

In an isolated country house, a young governess
arrives to take care of her new charges, Miles and
Flora. But before long she begins to believe there is
something darker at work in the depths of Bly House,
and battles to save the children from the mysterious
figures who seek to corrupt them.

The Turn of the Screw premiered at the 2018
Edinburgh Fringe Festival, enjoying a sold-out
three week run at the Underbelly Cowgate.

Running time: 60 minutes

Friday 22nd & Sat 23rd March 2019


Patrick Marber's incredible play about truth. A celebrated piece of work for an adult audience.

Marber’s raw tale of sexual betrayal among four star-crossed characters earned him comparisons with the emotional heavyweights of 20th-century theatre.

“It is right up there with Williams’s Streetcar, Mamet’s Oleanna, Albee’s Virginia Woolf, Pinter’s Old Times and Hare’s Skylight,” wrote one critic.

Josie Rourke, the artistic director of the Donmar, describes it as “one of the great plays about the human heart”. 

It’s about love, sex and the damage we do to each other in the names of these gods, with or without meaning it. (The Guardian)

Page-2-Stage Productions have been touring work across the country since 2010 and this is their first visit to the King's Theatre.

Rosencrantz & Guildenstern are Dead


Wednesday 3rd - Friday 5th April 2019


QE Senior Drama Production

The play cleverly re-interprets Shakespeare's Hamlet from the point of view of two minor characters: Rosencrantz and Guildenstern. The Laurel-and-Hardy-like pair are totally incidental to the action of Hamlet, subject to the whims of the King Claudius – who gets them to betray Hamlet – and then tricked by Hamlet into delivering a letter that condemns them to death. Tom Stoppard's breakthrough play. play turns Hamlet on its head by giving these two the main roles and reducing all of Shakespeare's major characters (including Hamlet) to minor roles. Written around and in-between the lines of Shakespeare's play, Stoppard brilliantly takes the main concerns of contemporary theatre, the inevitability of death, the breakdown in communication and feeling – and inserts them into the text of a much earlier play.
