There is drama on Saturday, September 24 at 7.30pm when ‘The Second Best Bed’ is performed.

When Shakespeare died, he famously left his wife Anne only one thing – the second best bed. This superb one-woman play, full of both humour and pathos, has received great critical acclaim since its premier. Liz Grand stars as Anne Hathaway on the night of Shakespeare’s funeral. The wake has finished, the mourners have all gone home, leaving Anne to remember her life with the most talented playwright the world has ever seen.

‘Black is the Colour of my Voice’ starring Apphia Campbell, inspired by the life of Nina Simone and featuring many of her most iconic songs performed live, is showing on Tuesday and Wednesday, September 27-28 at 7.30pm.
