The Life I Lead sees Miles Jupp, one of Britain’s leading stand-up comedians and revered actors (Mock the Week,The News Quiz, Rev, The Durrells), bring David Tomlinson’s remarkable story to life.

Best remembered for playing Mr Banks in Disney's classic film Mary Poppins, David Tomlinson was renowned for playing the classic English gent: forthright, proper, and a loveable fool. His meeting with Walt Disney came to encapsulate his incredible life full of adventure and heartbreak.

The man who portrayed one of cinema’s most famous patriarchs was designed by his relationship with his own father - a remote eccentric, who was hiding an extraordinary tragicomic secret.

A richly comic and moving tale of fathers and sons across the generations, The Life I Lead fills in the blanks behind a very well-known face.

    Tue 26 Feb - Fri 1 Mar

    I want to return to my home.  A British Northern Coastal town. Three young men are coming home from war. Their stories, set at different times over the last 100 years, are beautifully interwoven in this compelling new play by Anna Jordan. Directed by Neil Bettles (Associate Director of Frantic Assembly) and featuring Frantic’s celebrated physicality, The Unreturning explores the profou...

  • There has never been a better time to be an American comedian in the UK. Rich Hall’s precision dismantling of the tenuous relationship between two countries is as freewheeling and deadly accurate as ever. There’s stand-up, improvised ballads, and a hilarious, foot-stomping good time to be had by all. Even if you don’t own a hoe.

  • Chariots of Fire

    Tue 12 - Sat 16 Mar

    1924. The Paris Olympic Games. A devout Scottish Christian runs for the glory of God. The son of a Jewish immigrant runs to overcome prejudice. Two young track athletes who live for the beautiful purity of running and who prevail in the face of overwhelming odds. Based on the extraordinary true story of Eric Liddell and Harold Abrahams, Chariots of Fire is a timeless tale of hope, honou...
