What happens when the writer loses the plot?

Emma Watson is nineteen and new in town. She’s been cut off by her rich aunt and dumped back in the family home. Emma and her sisters must marry, fast. If not, they face poverty, spinsterhood, or worse: an eternity with their boorish brother and his awful wife.

Luckily there are plenty of potential suitors to dance with, from flirtatious Tom Musgrave to castle-owning Lord Osborne, who’s as awkward as he is rich.

So far so familiar. But there’s a problem: Jane Austen didn’t finish the story. Who will write Emma’s happy ending now?

Based on her incomplete novel, this sparklingly witty play looks under the bonnet of Jane Austen and asks: what can characters do when their author abandons them?

Laura Wade’s hit play Posh transferred to the West End from the Royal Court, and then onto the big screen as The Riot Club. Recent work includes the adaptation of Tipping the Velvet (Lyric Hammersmith and Edinburgh); her play Home I’m Darling premieres at Theatr Clwyd and the National Theatre in 2018.

Samuel West returns to Chichester, where he has appeared in Young Chekhov and ENRON, and directed Three Women and A Piano Tuner (2004). He was Artistic Director of Sheffield Theatres 2005-07, where he revived The Romans in Britain.

Tiny Fires in association with Park Theatre present Honour by Joanna Murray-Smith. Directed by Paul Robinson.

“Sometimes one craves something for years – for years – and one just defers from – from acting on it…”

For Honour and George, the arrival of the self-assured Claudia threatens to wreck a 32-year marriage. But as the power balance starts to shift, the husband, wife, daughter and mistress together must face the fundamental question – what is love?

Often compared to David Hare’s Skylight and Harold Pinter’s Betrayal, Honour  paints an unflinching portrait of what happens when a secure marriage suddenly stalls, and when the opportunity arises for one life to be revived at the expense of another.  Staged in-the-round, immerse yourself in this poignant and gripping revival!

Alice in Wonderland

Relaxed performance: Fri 14 December, 11am
Open Captioned performance: Fr 28 December, 7pm
Signed (BSL) performance: Sat 29 December, 2pm

Once upon a time there was a little girl who ran free in the wilds of her imagination, meeting Cheshire Cats, Mad Hatters, White Rabbits and any amount of talking cards. Her Wonderland was real, and she’d never forget it.

Until she grew up and did.

This year, the team that brought you the smash hit Christmas shows A (Scarborough) Christmas Carol and Pinocchio invite you to Boyes on a crowded Christmas Eve, as Alice falls down the rabbit hole once again to find she’s still a child in Wonderland… but Wonderland has changed.

And not for the better.

Can she save her wonderful friends? Will she get back to her kids, who she left by a fire extinguisher near the stock room? And can you get decent phone reception at the Mad Hatter’s house?

Daft, exciting and filled with brilliant songs, Alice in Wonderland is a delight for all the family, and their rabbits.*

*The rabbit thing might not be true. Who knows what rabbits are into? Leave them behind.

“Warm, inventive, hilarious and utterly bonkers!!!”

Transpose is curated by CN Lester and directed by Kate O’Donnell, two of the trans community’s leading lights and multi-talented performers. In the words of CN, it’s a space in which ‘we can show you our vulnerabilities, our strengths, and – most of all – our authenticity.’

A princess under a fairy’s curse pricks her finger on a spindle and sleeps for a hundred years, waiting to be woken by a prince’s kiss.

But hold on a moment. There’s a distinctly different slant to this story. The princess is beautiful and spirited but there are two princes and a lot of threatening thorns. As for the fairy who caused all the trouble in the first place – well, putting things right isn’t as simple as casting another spell.

Rufus Norris’s splendidly entertaining and mischievous version of the original fairy tale ventures beyond the usual ‘happy ever after’ ending with the prince and princess united. The course of true love never did run smooth – especially if your mother-in-law is an ogress with an unfortunate taste for human flesh…

Chichester Festival Youth Theatre are renowned for their wonderfully imaginative productions. They follow their five-star versions of Grimm Tales and Beauty and the Beast with a Sleeping Beauty that will keep you wide awake!

Rufus Norris’s version of Sleeping Beauty premiered at the Young Vic (2002). He is Director of the National Theatre.

Director Lucy Betts was formerly Head of Performance at the Yvonne Arnaud Theatre, Guildford, where her many productions included The Wizard of Oz, Oliver! and James and the Giant Peach.

There’s more than a hint of reality TV to this modern production of Shakespeare’s hilarious comedy, directed by Fiona Laird.

Down on his luck in the suburbs, Sir John Falstaff plans to hustle his way to a comfortable retirement by seducing the wives of two wealthy men. Unknown to him, it’s the women of Windsor who really pull the strings, orchestrating his comeuppance amid a theatrical smorgasbord of petty rivalries, jealousies and over-inflated egos.

For a fat Englishman, a Welshman and a Frenchman, the only way is Windsor… RSC Associate Artist David Troughton takes on the role of Sir John following his masterful performance in Titus Andronicus last year.

‘COME HOME.’
WHAT I THOUGHT WAS FROM MY MAN
IS FROM MY MUM.
‘COME HOME. NOW.’

An ordinary day in the ordinary life of an ordinary family. The clock blinks 7.37am, a rushed breakfast, and then off to join the hustle and bustle of the world outside. And then one random act changes everything. A bewildered family find themselves caught up in catastrophe and grief in this vivid, detailed and brilliantly observed play by debbie tucker green. An award-winning playwright, screenwriter and director, she is one of theatre’s most unique and acclaimed voices, and this play for one actor is a remarkable tour de force.

165 million years ago, an iguanodon is killed in the heart of a rainforest. Time passes, the rainforest becomes the South Downs, and every part of the iguanodon degrades and disappears – except one tooth.

197 years ago, in safe, affluent 1820s Sussex, a country doctor finds the tooth. But where does it fit in the story of an earth created by God just 6,000 years ago?

Kandinsky’s Dinomania is a story of scientific endeavour, bitter rivalry and terrible lizards.

This production is supported by Unity Theatre Trust.
