  • The best of times, the worst of times

    It was the best of times, it was the worst of times….

    Charles Dickens’ classic tale of revolution, redemption, and sacrifice is brought to life in this emotional and exciting retelling which combines the most memorable lines from the novel with fast paced and enjoyable stagecraft.

    Presented by the University of York Drama Society, it weaves the stories of English lawyer Sydney Carton and disguised French aristocrat Charles Darnay, both in love with the delightful Lucie Manette, who find themselves increasingly swept up in the French Revolution, led by the inexorable Monsieur and Madame Defarge.

  • Oddsocks Productions presents The Adventures of Pinocchio!

    Firm-favourites, Oddsocks Productions, return to York with The Adventures of Pinocchio!

    A wonderfully adventurous story with heart-warming lessons to learn along the way as our hand-made boy, Pinocchio, journeys through the world discovering just what it takes to be a real human. From villains and vagabonds to fairies and giant fish, Pinocchio meets adversity and adventure with equal measure and a jolly good dose of humour.

    Will Pinocchio listen to the talking cricket? Will his father regret having created him? Will the whale swallow them whole? Find out when Oddsocks breathe fresh air into this magical tale.

    The Oddsocks troupe tell a lively tale with imagination, music and skill and the story provides ample opportunity for their trademark style of madcap humour to have the audience rolling in the aisles and really getting involved.
