    Helen McCrory (Medea and The Last of the Haussmans at the National Theatre, Penny Dreadful, Peaky Blinders) returns to the National Theatre in Terence Rattigan's devastating masterpiece, playing one of the greatest female roles in contemporary drama. Tom Burke (War and Peace, The Musketeers) also features in Carrie Cracknell's critically acclaimed new production.

    A flat in Ladbroke Grove, West London. 1952.

    When Hester Collyer is found by her neighbours in the aftermath of a failed suicide attempt, the story of her tempestuous affair with a former RAF pilot and the breakdown of her marriage to a High Court judge begins to emerge.

    With it comes a portrait of need, loneliness and long-repressed passion. Behind the fragile veneer of post-war civility burns a brutal sense of loss and longing.

  • Stamp Your Feet! The Musical

    2 Sep 2016 - 3 Sep 2016
    The Corn Exchange - Stamford

    Stamp Your Feet! The Musical is written by Chris Mahony (Grantham) and Paul Fairey (Stamford) and made its debut at the Guidhall Arts Centre, Grantham in 2015. It received some wonderful feedback and the writers have decided to bring it to the Stamford Corn Exchange Theatre in 2016.

    The story centres around a small Yorkshire mining community in the early 1970s and the political disputes of the time. A key figure who is instrumental in backing strike action is Harold Harley whose son is trying to find fortune with his up and coming glam rock band. Will their opportunity to impress a top London agent with their new sound be ruined by the threat of a powercut? There are loads of original foot-tapping songs and this musical comedy is a great night out for the whole family.

    A cast from Grantham and Stamford will tread the boards at The Stamford Corn Exchange Theatre 2nd and 3rd September 2016.  

    Tickets cost £10 and are available from the box office. Call 01780 766455
