The Birds – Sterts Theatre Company   20th-23rd October; 7.30pm

By Connor McPherson, adapted from the short story by Daphne Du Maurier

‘deliciously chilling, claustrophobic, questioning, frightening; and with a twist’ (Irish Independent)

Diane, a writer, is trapped in a Cornish cottage on Bodmin Moor during a supernatural event in which birds begin attacking and killing anyone they can reach. Joined by two other survivors, Diane begins to realise that the real danger, perhaps, comes not from outside the door but by something far more dangerous lying within.

Warm up on this chilling & dark evening with a bowl of hearty soup served with bread. Available from 6.30pm, no booking required but first come first served! Drinks, Tea, Coffee & Cake will also be on offer during the interval.

Tickets £10


Double Trouble - CAMP Theatre   28th-29th October; 7.30pm

This Double Bill of comedy and drama features the debut plays of two highly regarded British Playwrights, Harold Pinter & John Mortimer

The Room features reversals and surprises that can be both funny and emotionally moving; and an unconventional ending that leaves at least some questions unresolved.

The Dock Brief examines the nature of the relationship between a criminal and the law and is Mortimer’s first exploration of the subject.

Warm yourself up pre show with a bowl of hearty soup served with bread. Available from 6.30pm, no booking required but first come first served! Tea, Coffee & Cake will also be on offer during the interval.
