Monty quickly realises that he is unlikely to outlive eight heirs….unless.
Buoyed by his love for two different women, Monty sets his murderous course.
This madcap, musical retelling of the Alec Guinness classic Kind Hearts and Coronets, with its hilarious plot, toe-tapping score and unforgettable characters, will have you laughing…to death.

Author: Yasmina Reza

Director: Justin Stephens

Genre: Comedy

Agent: DPS Dramatists play Service


At the heart of ART is a fundamental question of friendship, one that raises deep issues about truth, honesty, and human connection. The plot is simple, Serge buys an apparently pure white canvas by a fashionable artist for an eyewatering sum. His close friend Marc thinks he’s insane. Yvan, their mutual friend, tries to mediate and they both turn on him. It’s a laugh-out-loud funny play.
Serge buys an expensive painting – white lines on a white canvas. To Marc, the painting is a joke. Yvan is on the fence. Battle lines are drawn, and the trio use the ‘‘art’’ to settle scores and push their 15 year old friendship to the limit. A Tony Award winner for Best Play and an Olivier Award winner for Best Comedy.

This is not so much a play as it is a vaudeville show in which three charismatic, wildly ambitious performers, attempt to present ALL thirty-seven of Shakespeare’s plays in a single performance. They have a rudimentary concept of the stories and have imperfectly memorized a smattering of famous lines. Thus armed, the three brazenly launch into their task with an earnest focus and breakneck enthusiasm. What could possibly go wrong?

Unger and Madison are at it again!

Florence Unger and Olive Madison, that is, in Neil Simon’s hilarious contemporary classic: the female version of The Odd Couple.

The Sum of Us

The Basin Theatre Group Inc.
23 Nov 2023 - 3 Dec 2023

Author: David Stevens

Director: Di Hoskins

Genre: Drama

Agent: Samuel French Inc. - A Concord Theatricals Company


A widowed father lives with his son and is very supportive of him finding Mr Right, while he in turn is quietly hoping for some female company of his own. The play looks at love in whatever form it takes and the importance of having love in a person’s life. We are drawn into the lives of the two main characters through side chats directly to the audience as we witness the jovial banter between father and son along with their internal monologues. Funny and charming, the play was written 30 years ago and, while some societal attitudes have evolved, there is still a ring of truth in many ways.
