Two bachelors, John ‘Jack’ Worthing and Algernon ‘Algy’ Moncrieff, who create alter egos named Ernest to escape their tiresome lives. They attempt to win the hearts of two women who, conveniently, claim to only love men called Ernest. The pair struggle to keep up with their own stories and become tangled in a tale of deception, disguise and misadventure.
Much Ado About Nothing follows two vastly different love stories over the course of a visit. The Prince of Aragon, with his men Benedick and Claudio, visit Leonato, Duke of Messina, father of Hero, and uncle to Beatrice. It’s love at first sight for Claudio and Hero and the two quickly prepare to marry. Meanwhile, Beatrice and Benedick are known to not only despise love but also each other and are often found bantering and bickering. The others plot to trick the two into falling in love. When Hero’s virtue is put into question, the love of both couples is put to the test.

Patrick Barlow, writer of the Broadway and West End hit The 39 Steps, has retold Charles Dickens’ holiday classic, A Christmas Carol. This thrilling adaptation uses only five actors to bring some of Dickens' most beloved characters to life. From Scrooge and Tiny Tim to Bob Cratchit and Mrs. Fezziwig, Barlow's A Christmas Carol uses nothing more than some simple props, fresh physicality, and the power of imagination to convey this timeless story of redemption. Witness Ebenezer Scrooge's transformation from a stingy miser to a man who generously celebrates the spirit of the season all year long, in this highly theatrical adaptation.
