Ross & Rachel


What happens when two friends who were always meant to be together, get together – and stay together? No one told them life was going to be this way…

A dark and uncompromising play about romance, expectation and mortality, James Fritz's Ross & Rachel takes an unflinching look at the myths of modern love.

Written by James Fritz, starring Tallulah Smith and directed by Joe Plumb.


Hansel & Gretel


Join Hansel and Gretel as they go on a brave quest into the deep dark forest. Will they be able to get home safely?

This interactive performance uses music and puppetry to bring this wonderful adventure to the stage. Lots of laughter as they meet a whole host of strange creatures on their way to the Gingerbread house.

Created and Performed by the Horse Box Theatre Ensemble.

Family Friendly

The Girl's Guide To Saving the World


A frank and funny new play about friendship, feminism and what it means to be successful.


Jane and Bella are best friends. They're starting a revolution. But they're falling out of step.


Toby dreams of babies, buggies, and home improvement. But he can't even father his cat. 

Written by Elinor Cook and directed by Emily Bradshaw.


Bagwitch's Revolting

Right Royal Knees Up 


HRH The Queen cordially invites you to the biggest Royal Party of the year! Join the Bagwitches’ as they are lumbered with the task of organising all the food, decorations and entertainments for the Royal household.

What could possibly go wrong? Expect music, dancing, food and laughter… it’s going to be a complete disaster!

Created and Performed by the Horse Box Theatre Ensemble.

Family Friendly

Education, Education, Education 


It's May 1997. Tony Blair has won the election and Katrina and the Waves have won Eurovision. Channel 5 is a month old. No one knows who Harry Potter is. Britain is the coolest place in the world.

At the local secondary school it's a different story. Miss Belltop-Doyle can't control her Year 10s, Mr Pashley has been put in charge of a confiscated Tamagotchi, and Miss Turner is hoping that this muck-up day goes smoother than the last. Tobias, the German language assistant, watches on. Things can only get better.

Written by Wardrobe Ensemble and directed by Liam Gifford. 


Renegade Girls


The inspiring, kid-friendly story of a young girl called Martha who dared to stand out. The real life adventures of Mary Ellis, Jane Austen, Queen Victoria, Ellen MaCarthur and Emily Davies come to life with interactive performance to inspire Martha. From spitfires to yachts, writing to ruling and the power of education.


The authentic and inspirational stories of the amazing women from the Solent are brought to the stage in this charming new musical story.

Created and performed by the Horse Box Theatre Ensemble.
