Luis & the AliensU

Solitary 11-year-old Luis makes friends with three loveable aliens after they crash their UFO near his house. In return for Luis' help in finding the home-shopping channel stuff they came for, they save Luis from being sent to boarding school. A wild adventure follows where Luis and his friends from outer space try to reach the huge mother ship, to take the aliens home. And perhaps Luis should just leave with them to get away from all his problems here on Earth . . . The farcical slapstick and general sense of fun will work for younger kids.

Written and performed by Phoebe Waller-Bridge (Fleabag, Killing Eve) and directed by Vicky Jones, Fleabag is a rip-roaring look at some sort of woman living her sort of life. Fleabag may seem oversexed, emotionally unfiltered and self-obsessed, but that's just the tip of the iceberg. With family and friendships under strain and a guinea pig café struggling to keep afloat, Fleabag suddenly finds herself with nothing to lose. Playing to sold-out audiences in New York and London, don’t miss your chance to see this ‘legitimately hilarious show’ (New Yorker), broadcast live to a cinema near you.

‘The course of true love never did run smooth.’ A feuding fairy King and Queen of the forest cross paths with four runaway lovers and a troupe of actors trying to rehearse a play. As their dispute grows, the magical royal couple meddle with mortal lives leading to love triangles, mistaken identities and transformations… with hilarious, but dark consequences. Shakespeare’s most famous romantic comedy will be captured live from the Bridge Theatre in London.
