Fat Rascal Theatre in association with The Drayton Arms presents

BUZZ: A New Musical

The Drayton Arms Theatre, 153 Old Brompton Road, London SW5 0LJ

BUZZ is a hilarious, brutally honest musical story of a singleton’s quest to fall back in love with herself. Join us as we finally uncover the untold struggle for women’s independence throughout the ages. Bridget Jones meets the Book of Mormon.

BUZZ is a feminist production proudly celebrating women’s independence. This is not your average musical. With a cast of 9 recently graduated actor musicians, Fat Rascal transports the audience from the cave women of the Stone Age to Victorian London’s Hysteria Pandemic, from Cleopatra’s Egypt to the Land Girls of World War II. BUZZ is a fun approach to feminism, a comedy with a message aiming to liberate young women and open conversations about taboo subjects.

Fat Rascal Theatre is a fresh new company from this year’s East 15 Acting School graduates. They are bold, cheeky and brash, using music and comedy to educate and empower. After a sell-out Edinburgh Festival run, Robyn Grant (Book and Lyrics) and James Ringer-Beck (Music) are thrilled to be bringing Buzz to this wonderful theatre in South Kensington for an all inclusive three week run. Winning The Drayton Arms’ Eddies has given them the chance to develop the show further with Taylor Danson and Freya Espie (Directors) and Matthew Ives and Allie Munro (Choreographers), and a cast which includes Taylor Danson and Adam Napier (Peter Pan, Regents Park Open Air Theatre). It has given them an opportunity so desired by all young theatre companies: to create brave new work in a financially safe and supportive space.

Suitable for ages 16+ (contains strong language, partial nudity and scenes of a sexual nature)

At secret locations in South London

Teatro Vivo, in association with the Albany, present:


The Residents

A site-specific ghost story staged in homes across South London
directed by Sophie Austin


As the dark winter nights draw in, Teatro Vivo is inviting audiences to their most intimate show yet: a house viewing with a difference.

After staging Shakespeare in Sainsbury’s supermarkets, Mother Courage in an old weapons factory and The Odyssey on the streets of Deptford, where they performed everywhere from tattoo parlours to pubs, the acclaimed company who have a reputation for staging “theatre where you least expect it” will be inhabiting a different secret south London home each week.


In The Residents the audience, of up to 30 people a time, will become house hunters.  They will be told their appointment time and the nearest train station, but will not be given the exact location until the day of the show.


After meeting estate agent, Amelia Spoke, they will enter the property and hear previous inhabitant’s stories, discovering how disturbing echoes of a places past can be felt in the present.


From a murderess who disposes of her husband, to the bizarre tale of a man who woke up one morning transformed into a beetle, and a carer who is badly in need of care herself, the audience will experience the perturbing tales of those who have resided there before.


Each location will incorporate echoes of its history through the voices and sounds of the real-life neighbours.


With the help of an immersive soundscape, a tapestry of stories will emerge allowing the bricks and mortar currently standing on the space to tell their story.


Inspired by the latest discoveries in gravitational wave technology, that open up the possibilities of multiple universes, new ways at looking at time and how the past and future collide together, The Residents will encourage the audience to consider who came before and what they may leave after they have gone.


Monday to Friday at 7.30pm

Gary's Warehouse, The Bottle Shop, 128 Druid Street, Bermondsey, London SE1 2HH


After a sell-out run last year, The Night Before Christmas is coming back to Bermondsey!

An (anti)Christmas Night Out With a Difference! Following an extremely successful run last year, Different Breed Theatre are bringing back their production of Anthony Neilson’s dark Christmas comedy, The Night Before Christmas, for a longer run and with some new developments.

Presented once again in Gary's Warehouse in Bermondsey and watch an elf (well...he says he's an elf) will once again have to talk his way out of a hostage situation.

The cast of West End actors includes Timothy O’Hara straight from 11 months as Christopher Wren in The Mousetrap; Michelle Luther who was nominated for Best Actress in the Off West End Awards for her recent performance in Dreamplay at The Vaults; Chris Harper who played Benedick in last year’s Globe production of Much Ado about Nothing; and Glenn Hanning who performed in Edward Bond’s Dea at the Secombe Centre this summer.

Last year Melanie Hill (Cathy Matthews from Coronation Street) said of the show, “It was so fecking good it laddered my Christmas stockings...!”

Our (slightly pervy) Santa will be in his Grotty Hole giving out some fairly questionable gifts to those brave enough to sit on his knee! There will be rude Christmas cards on sale. On the Saturday nights there will be stand-up comedy after the play. There will be beer from local breweries and delicious alternative Jamaican Christmas food from Arawak Catering.

Fun for grownups* (15+) this is perfect for: Christmas Parties, Lonely Evenings for One, A Chilled Night Out, or even A Festive Tinder/Grindr Date Night with a Difference.

*some reasonably placed swearing and sexual language where necessary.

Cast/Creatives: Chris Harper – Simon; Timothy O’Hara – Gary; Michelle Luther – Cherry; Glenn Hanning – Elf.
Director: Sarah Henley

Chickenshed present the World Premiere of a brand new musical:

Adventure to Oz
by Lou Stein

This Christmas we will be presenting a world premiere of a fantastical new musical, based on the much-loved and wonderful Oz stories of L. Frank Baum - Adventure to Oz! The show will be a mammoth undertaking and a true theatrical spectacle, created by our new Artistic Director, Lou Stein – and we absolutely cannot wait to share it with audiences!

In this dazzling production, we will encounter familiar characters such as Dorothy, the Scarecrow and the Tin Man, and we will be introduced to new loveable and memorable characters such as the incredible Patchwork Girl and Ojo the Unlucky Munchkin. We will travel along the famous Yellow Brick Road with a brave band of friends on a quest to release Ojo’s Uncle from an enchantment that has turned him to stone.

Our huge and diverse cast continually wows and entrances audiences and includes hundreds of children, young people and adults all working together to create a theatrical extravaganza.

The production will brilliantly demonstrate our continued desire to reflect and include our entire community.

This will be a show of incredible scale – if you’ve seen a Chickenshed Christmas show before, expect to be even more dazzled and amazed. And if you’ve never seen a Chickenshed Christmas show, then what are you waiting for? Follow the Yellow Brick Road to Chickenshed for an unforgettable theatrical experience this Christmas!

Good’s Way, King’s Cross, London, N1C 4UR

This Olivier and Tony Award-winning Broadway musical continues to play in London following a critically acclaimed sell-out UK premiere at Southwark Playhouse in 2014.



Initially booked for a limited 4 week run, 3 Olivier Award-winning Broadway musical In The Heights has extended its run at King’s Cross Theatre for a fourth time, until its final performance on Sunday 8th January 2017.

In The Heights is an uplifting and exhilarating journey into Washington Heights, one of Manhattan's most vibrant communities – a place where the coffee is light and sweet, the windows are always open and the breeze carries the rhythm of three generations of music. It’s a community on the brink of change, full of hopes, dreams and pressures, where the biggest struggle can be deciding which traditions to take with you, and which ones to leave behind. With a gripping story and unforgettable Latin and hip-hop infused score, In The Heights is a ground-breaking contemporary musical about what it takes to make a living, what it costs to have a dream, and what it means to be home.

King’s Cross Theatre is a brand new purpose built theatre at King’s Cross Station.

A late night bar is open to coincide with performances of In The Heights.
Opening an hour before every performance until late, with live music and DJs after certain performances.
