The Secret Garden


This stunning adaptation of Frances Hodgson Burnett's novel has been adapted for the stage by Dave Simpson.

Ken Ludwig’s The Game’s Afoot is a Sherlock Holmes-style comedy thriller. A good old traditional ‘whodunnit’ with a generous dose of hilarity. It was also the winner of the 2012 Edgar Award for Best Play from the Mystery Writers of America.
