The Single Lady

The Single Lady

A brand-new, student-written musical focusing on the infamous love triangle between Elizabeth I, her cousin Lettice Knollys and Robert Dudley.


As the daughter of Anne Boleyn, Elizabeth knows how much love can go wrong, but when she is seduced by courtier Dudley, History asks her one question: how far must a woman go to win at a man's game? Written by Will Geraint Drake and Lauren Brewer, 'The Single Lady' offers a glimpse into the sacrifice and personal cost to be a female leader in a man's world. Perhaps the “Virgin Queen” really isn’t all she seems in the history books...

Rosencrantz and Guildenstern

Rosencrantz and Guildenstern

Taking Hamlet from a worm’s eye view, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead is an absurdist, existential tragicomedy, that asks what happens when reality and illusion intermix, offering profound reflections on the inevitability of fate.


Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead tells the fabulously inventive tale of Hamlet from the worm’s eye view of the bewildered Rosencrantz and Guildenstern. This Shakespearean Laurel and Hardy take over the lead roles but do so in a world where reality and illusion intermix mercilessly. As Rosencrantz and Guildenstern attempt to figure out their purpose, their role, and their meaning onstage, Hamlet’s journey continues in the wings, offering a unique angle on acting itself as our two heroes remain bound to their inevitable fates and unable to participate in conflict unfurling off-stage, leading to a tragically unavoidable end.

Lady Windermere's Fan

Lady Windermere's Fan

One of Oscar Wilde’s most witty and uncompromisingly satirical comedies, examining the gender politics within marriage and society and the ambiguous idea of sexual morality among the upper classes


Foot of the Hill Theatre Company is back with another thrilling Oscar Wilde play: Lady Windermere’s Fan. The play is a brilliant drawing-room comedy, relating the enjoyably unlikely story of a wife who suspects her husband of having an affair, only for the ‘other woman’ to be unmasked as her own mother. In combination with its diamond-sharp one-liners and quality entertainment value, the play is a subtle social satire, pointing out the hypocrisy of Victorian attitudes to women and sex. With a brilliant creative vision working with this socially-provocative comedy, Lady Windermere's Fan is not to be missed.

The Crucible

The Crucible

Based on the Salem Witch Trails of 1692–93, the play functions as an allegory for McCarthyism in 50s America and explores themes of corruption, hysteria and justice.


This exciting drama about the Puritan purge of witchcraft in old Salem is both a gripping historical play and a timely parable of our contemporary society. The story focuses upon a young farmer and his wife, and a young servant-girl who maliciously causes the farmer's wife to be arrested for witchcraft. The farmer brings the girl to court to admit the lie—and it is here that the monstrous course of bigotry and deceit is terrifyingly depicted. The farmer, instead of saving his wife, finds himself also accused of witchcraft and ultimately condemned with a host of others.
