HMS Pinafore (Gilbert & Sullivan)
Climb aboard HMS Pinafore! Josephine's to be engaged to the First Lord of the Admiralty. But she’s madly in love with Ralph, a humble sailor, much to the annoyance of her strict father Captain Corcoran. Can Ralph summon the courage to confess his feelings and elope with her? What will happen when dear little Buttercup reveals a secret that could change the lives of everyone on the ship? The Gilbert and Sullivan Society of St Andrews bring Gilbert’s wittiest writing and Sullivan’s most soaring melodies to life in this lively story of turbulent love on the ocean blue.

Thaw is a charming comedy-drama and the writing debut of experienced director Louis Catliff. Thaw follows Laura at two stages in her life. We see young Laura having to say goodbye to her childhood best friend Evelyn, and, in the present day, Laura in an old-folks home suffering with the early stages of dementia as her son Henry struggles to care for her. In a tale of friendship, music, nostalgia and prune sandwiches, Thaw explores the transitionary stages of life and offers both heartbreak and humour abounds.
