Iage of Grow Up Grandad poster

2-5 March Grow Up Grandad by Gordon Steel, directed by Mike Crooks

Poppy is eleven years old and has attitude. When she finds herself living with her cantankerous grandfather, a man she neither likes nor loves all hell breaks loose. Something of a hermit, a man living in the past who sees very little good in anything or anybody. Ken is suddenly and unexpectedly confronted by a tornado of energy who can’t sit still and has too many questions, He is a man with no television, no computer, and no patience, and while their relationship is volatile it’s also very funny, and strewn with moments of real tenderness.



11-14 May God of Carnage by Yasmina Reza, directed by Wendie Middleton

What happens when two sets of parents meet up to deal with the unruly behaviour of their children? A calm and rational debate between grown-ups about the need to teach kids how to behave properly? Or a hysterical night of name-calling, tantrums and tears before bedtime?



27 June-2 July I Thought I Heard a Rustling by Alan Plater, directed by Jim Woods

An ex-miner turned poet is appointed writer-in-residence at Eastwood branch library. Ellen, senior librarian, soon realizes the feckless but charming Geordie is no poet. Despite this she finds him highly entertaining, much to the disgust of Nutley, an earnest young man who covets the writer-in-residence role. These three find themselves an unlikely but united strike group when the Libraries sub-committee proposes demolishing the library.



12-15 October The Ladykillers by Graham Linehan, directed by David Tuffnell

Based on the classic Ealing comedy film, Mrs Wilberforce, a sweet little old lady, rents out a room in her lopsided house to Marcus, a professor of music. She is blissfully unaware that he is actually a maniacal criminal who is putting together against a gang of misfits who will stop at nothing to commit the heist of their careers. Unable to think of a suitable final stage to their plan, Marcus decides to involve Mrs. Wilberforce, unwittingly, as the perfect getaway ruse.
