Dead Good by Vamos Theatre
From:30-06-2022
To:30-06-2022

Bob and Bernard don’t have that much in common. But after a chance meeting at their weekly hospice group, they realise they share one ambition – to do some serious living before they die. So, with a bottle of Bollinger and the keys to Bernard’s Bentley in hand, they hit the road, and take on one final, deathdefying adventure. Originally commissioned by London International Mime Festival, Dead Good is a funny and poignant theatre show celebrating friendship – and the importance of living every precious day to the full. Bubbling with humour and awash with pathos, this beautifully crafted production is performed entirely without words.

Comedy Club 4 Kids
From:17-07-2022
To:17-07-2022
+ More Info +

Just like a normal comedy club but kids are allowed in!
Since 2005, the Comedy Club 4 Kids has been getting the best stand-ups, sketch acts and cabaret stars from the international circuit to do their thing for an audience of children (aged 6+) and their families… but without the rude bits!

Over a decade later, the company has expanded from one London residency to being countrywide, running shows and workshops all over the UK from Peebles to Portsmouth, even producing a book on how to write and perform stand-up, and hosting their own Radio Nonsense podcast to bring the sillies to families all over the world.

The show is family friendly, but not patronising. In fact, it's just like a normal comedy club, but it's on in the day, kids are allowed in, and so there's a higher than usual chance of the entire audience claiming to be called Bob.

Age Recommendation 6+
Running Time 60 Mins

AN INTERVENTION
From:22-07-2022
To:13-08-2022
+ More Info +

They’ve always been best friends. Well, friends anyway. Do grown-ups really have best friends? Then one goes on the anti-war protest, and one doesn’t. One feels let down, one feels justified. One feels abandoned, one feels attacked. One gets spectacularly drunk, one tries to change their life.
From Mike Bartlett, the writer of King Charles III, Scandaltown, The 47th, and the smash-hit TV drama Doctor Foster, An Intervention is about what happens when you don’t see eye to eye with the people you love the most. It’s about needing one another, and failing one another. It’s about being honest and being outrageous. It might just be what we all need right now.

TREASURE ISLAND

To:04-09-2022
+ More Info +

Orphaned teenager Jim Hawkins, left in the careless care of Aunt Agnes, is serving ale in the Admiral Benbow when the infamous pirate Billy Bones crashes into the bar and changes his life forever.

Greenwich Theatre is one of London’s most beloved Off-West End theatres, holding a programme of drama, music, theatre, family shows, and pantomime all year round.

The theatre has a national reputation of encouraging the work of young and exciting theatre companies, consistently providing a debut stage for new writing that often transfers around the country, returns to the West End, and then makes it way across the world.

Although the Greenwich Theatre has its groundings in supporting emerging talent, the site on which the current building stands is rich with a history that reaches back many years before the opening of the present-day venue in 1969. At the beginning of the 19th century, the theatre was associated with Richardson’s travelling theatre - a fairground theatre which presented twenty-five minute shows in several genres. The shows became so popular that some records account for over 10,000 people attending the event. The show was eventually closed due to the enormous amount of attendees, who exhibited drunkenness and caused public nuisance. However, the theatre continued to celebrate its heritage, with Eleanor Bufton reciting a poem including lines concerning Richardson’s show on her first night as the manager of the Greenwich Theatre.

In recent times, the theatre is at the forefront of developing the UK’s family theatre scene, and celebrates the genre by producing the annual Greenwich Children’s Theatre Festival, and presenting one of the country’s most acclaimed traditional pantomimes. It also developed a partnership with Sell a Door Theatre Company who presented a re-run of The Who’s popular musical, Tommy, which was performed at the venue in 2015, in its first performance in over 20 years.
