We have one show on our current programme with a February deadline: 'The Life of Pi' at Hull New Theatre on March 27th in the evening.

The Theatregoers group offers the opportunity not only to see a variety of shows from drama, comedy, musicals, ballet etc., but to have a good day out perhaps in Leeds, Sheffield, Scarborough or York.
The group has been in existence since 2005 and many friendships have been formed during that time.
There is always room in the Theatregoers group for the princely sum of £2 per year and you are under no obligation to attend all of the events, just pick and choose.
If you would like to join us, please contact Convenor. Jean Quantrill

Quality Street
(Northern Broadsides)
Hull Truck Theatre 03rd April £23.00 Car Share

Quality Street   Phoebe Throssel lives on Quality Street, the bustling hub of a quaint northern town where she runs a school for unruly children. Ten years since saying a tearful goodbye, an old flame returns from fighting Napoleon. But the look of disappointment on Captain Valentine's face when he greets a more mature, less glamorous Phoebe, spurs our determined heroine to action. She becomes the wild and sparkling Miss Livy, a younger alter-ego who soon entraps the clueless Captain. As their romance is rekindled, can she juggle both personas? Or will her deception scandalise the town and wreck any future with the man she loves? This looks like it's going to be Northern Broadsides doing what they do best.
The production is directed by Laurie Sansom.

Constant Companions Stephen Joseph
Theatre, Scarborough
15th August £27.60 Train from Cottingham

Constant Companions   In his 89th play Alan Ayckboum weaves together the story highflying lawyer Lorraine, lonely bachelor Don and technician Winston with characteristic humour and compassion. Lorraine is a fabulously successful lawyer of a certain age. Jan Sixty is the janitor of her building, an android of indeterminate age. In a not-too-distant future humans have turned to artificial friends for companionship without compromise, can Lorraine find true love?
