It's never too early to get your tickets. You can book easily at anytime using the link on either our own website, or on the Playhouse Theatre website, as well as through the Box Office during their usual opening hours.

The classic Ealing comedy re-imagined for the stage.

A gang of criminal misfits take refuge in the house of kindly Mrs Wilberforce whilst they plan their next big job.

Professor Marcus, the gang's mastermind, has concocted a devilish heist, which Mrs Wilberforce unwittingly becomes a part of. It's the perfect crime; after all who would suspect an innocent old lady of daylight robbery?

After Mrs Wilberforce becomes aware of their deception, it becomes clear that she is intent on going to the police and the gang realises there is only one way they can guarantee she stays silent…

But tying up this loose end soon threatens to unravel all of their best made plans!

Freshers Fayre

Wednesday 12th September, 11:00 - 16:00 at Park Campus
If you are attending the upcoming Gloucester & Cheltenham Freshers Fayre, ensure you pop by our stand to say hello.  We'll be telling the students all about the work we do and how they can get involved.

Heritage Open Day

Sunday 16th September, 12:00 - 16:00
Just few days after the Freshers Fayre, the Theatre will again be opening it's doors to the public for free guided tours. This is always a great opportunity for both the Theatre and the company to explain to the general public what we do, and of course to encourage participation. The Theatre is one of the most popular venues in the area taking part in this national event!
This year, your committee member Ben Lowater is managing our stand. If you can spare some time to help, we would really appreciate your help. Please get in touch with Ben Lowater.
