This is Ben Elton at his comic best!
Doris Wallace is the Bitch to end all Bitches!! As a TV columnist who makes her living viciously criticising TV actors, she is bitchy, hardnosed and totally unrepentant about the carnage she causes and the careers she destroys.  Now one of them is suing her for libel.  
Peggy is her long suffering PA who is often the butt of Doris’s anger. Bring them altogether with Ben Elton’s sharp wit and the result is a hilarious and explosive mix. Doris is about to get her just desserts and how! From the company that always brings you dynamic and thrilling theatre this is one not to miss!

Dystopian Dreams

Silver Circle returns to The Rose Centre in February to explore a dystopian society where oppression and dehumanisation are the norm. A splash of colour breaks the spell, creating crisis and rebellion, and the citizens struggle to decide on where they want to sit on the scale between freedom and control. Simultaneously challenging and cheeky, inspiring and entertaining, these talented performers will bring a not-so-impossible future to life in front of your eyes. Come prepared for a dynamic and unique production that will challenge, astonish and captivate you and your friends. Keep an open mind, join in the fun, and you won’t regret it!

What does it take to be an Ideal Husband? How would you know if you have found one? Or are one? Is there such a thing? This is Oscar Wilde at his wildest. Funny, witty, and biting, this play will have you laughing at society, and then thinking about politics!  Or maybe that’s laughing at politics and thinking about society. Political critique is combined in a sumptuous feast of fun and frivolity. For more information go to
