Monologues, Storytelling and the Science of Generosity


We’re delighted to announce the return of Voices Off, One Voice and introduce our very first Christmas Storytelling event.

One Voice is a series of monologues, funded by the TS Eliot Estate, celebrating the rawest of theatre forms – a single voice on a stage without scenery or costume, and with nothing to rely on but words.

On Fri 12 Jan One Voice returns with specially commissioned one-off performances.

The Hardest Rain written and performed by Zawe Ashton, directed by Jo McInnes

Renewed by Deirdre Kinahan with Julie Walters

Have You Ever Engaged In Genocide? By Tamsin Oglesby

John Speed by Chris Terrio

Voices Off is a series of talks, conversations, debates and workshops which explore the themes raised by the productions on the main stage.

The Science of Generosity on Thu 14 Dec explores how giving may really be good for us – many argue that altruism has a positive effect on our well-being, and evolutionary benefits.

And for our younger audiences, we’re delighted to have a morning of Christmas Storytelling for ages 5+, with authors and performers including Michael Rosen (and, if we ask him, he might tell us about that ‘Chocolate Cake’!!!) reading their own work and their festive favourites on Sat 16 Dec. And we’re inviting little ones (and not so little ones) to send in their thoughts and pictures inspired by the stories on the day to share as part the countdown to our 200th birthday. Simply get in touch on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram or email

Priority booking is now open. Tickets will go on general sale on Monday 27 November at 12pm.
