We have a fabulous year of shows planned in 2022.
Beginning in January with a one-night only performance of The Rule of Three – three short Agatha Christie plays – performed “radio style”. Then in February a joyous Off-Brioadway musical The Spitfire Grill. In May we have Noel Coward’s wonderful Present Laughter. In June we’re producing a lovely new adaptation of Pride and Prejudice and for Halloween a new adaptation of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein.
The Rule of Three
Three Agatha Christie tales of mystery and murder, performed “radio style” live on stage. If you came to our sold-out Agatha Christie performance in 2020 you won’t want to miss this, and if you didn’t – you still won’t want to miss this!!!

Spitfire GrillBuy Tickets
“What even in normal times would be a joy is, in these troubled ones, sheer nourishment.” New York Magazine
This is a beautiful story of hope, friendship and redemption with music styles of Bluegrass, Country and Broadway-styled pop ballads combined with heartfelt lyrics.
The Spitfire Grill tells of Percy a feisty young parolee following her dreams to a small town in Wisconsin. She is introduced by her parole officer to the rundown Spitfire Grill eatery. Here, she is taken on to the displeasure of some of the townsfolk. The Grill is for sale but has no takers within the depressed town. Percy convinces Hannah to raffle it off and soon innumerable letters arrive, things then really start cookin’ at the Spitfire Grill.
Don’t miss it!
“The Spitfire Grill is a complete work of theatrical resourcefulness. A compelling story that flows with grace and carries the rush of anticipation…The musical is freeing. It is penetrated by honesty and it glows.” New York TimesBuy Tickets

Noel Coward’s Present Laughter
At the centre of his own universe sits matinee idol Garry Essendine: suave, hedonistic and too old, says his wife, to be having numerous affairs. His line in harmless, infatuated debutantes is largely tolerated but playing closer to home is not. Just before he escapes on tour to Africa the full extent of his misdemeanours is discovered. And all hell breaks loose. Noel Coward’s Present Laughter premiered in the early years of the Second World War just as such privileged lives were threatened with fundamental social change.
Present Laughter is at The Place, Bradgate Road, Bedford from Tuesday May 3rd to Saturday May 7th. On-site car park.
Tickets on sale soon.
