What's on at Playhouse 2 in 2019

Friday 17th May at 8.00pm


In January 1711, Queen Anne, the last Stuart monarch to occupy the British throne, appointed a former chambermaid named Abigail Hill to be Keeper of the Privy Purse, thus decisively reversing the fortunes of Sarah Churchill, the Duchess of Marlborough, who had previously been among the queen’s most trusted advisers.


That morsel of historical arcana is the basis of “The Favourite,” a wildly entertaining, bracingly cynical comedy of royal manners directed by Yorgos Lanthimos.


Olivia Coleman picked up the best actress Oscar for her portrayal of Queen Anne.  

Tickets £4.00 on sale from 8th April. Please note age restriction of 15+

Saturday 18th May at 8.00pm


Seasoned musician Jackson Maine discovers -- and falls in love with -- struggling artist Ally. She has just about given up on her dream to make it big as a singer until Jackson coaxes her into the spotlight. But even as Ally's career takes off, the personal side of their relationship is breaking down, as Jackson fights an ongoing battle with his own internal demons. 

Tickets £4.00 on sale from 8th April. Please note age restriction of 15+
