Theatre for all ages

From hard-hitting drama, to classic family favourites and a nostalgic look back at one of the UK’s best loved comedy classics, there’s a theatrical treat for all tastes at The Mill this October.

Award-winning Box Tale Soup present their adaptation of best-selling author Henry James’ disturbing story, The Turn of The Screw.

A young governess arrives at an isolated country house to care for her new charges. Before long she begins to believe there are dark forces hidden in the depths of Bly House and battles to save the children from the mysterious figures who seek to corrupt them. This “beautifully crafted” (Fringe Guru) production features clever puppetry and a haunting original soundtrack that made it a sell-out success at the 2018 Edinburgh Festival Fringe.

“A visual spectacle… meticulously choreographed… absolutely not to be missed” Young Perspective.

Turn of the Screw will be at The Mill on Thursday 17th October at 7:30pm, with tickets priced at just £16 (£13 members).

For younger audiences (3+), Lyngo theatre present Jack & The Beanstalk, hot on the heels of having recently been crowned ‘Best Family Show’ at the International Youth Arts Festival 2019.

Starring Patrick Lynch (CBeebies), expect lots of surprises and beautiful storytelling in this classic fairy-tale about the boy Jack, who sells his cow for 5 magic beans. There are enormous shoes, tiny houses, showers of silver and gold, and a big leafy explosion!

Jack and the Beanstalk will be at The Mill on Tuesday 29th October at 11am. Tickets are priced at £10
(£35 family of 4).

Do You Think That’s Wise is an affectionate tribute to one of Britain’s best loved comedy stars, John Le Mesurier. Julian Dutton (BBC1’s The Big Impression) stars as the man behind the wry smile and urbane repartee that charmed millions and turned John Le Mesurier into a household name as Sergeant Wilson in Dad’s Army.

“You would think that John Le Mesurier was actually stood before you. An amazing biographical tale” British Comedy Guide.

Packed with glorious reminisces and stories from the Golden Age of classic British comedy, this is a joyful and moving celebration of one of the most popular comic actors of our era.

Do You Think That’s Wise will be at The Mill on Friday 25th October at 7:30pm and tickets are £16 (£14 members).

Of course, there is so much more on offer too, with the usual full programme of music, comedy, films and more ensuring something for everyone. For more information and online booking visit:
