'Out of this world' questions for the cast of The Smeds and The Smoos!

Next week we welcome The Smeds and The Smoos, a stellar new adventure live on stage for the whole family to enjoy! Based on the book by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler, it promises music, laughs and puppetry. 

We asked members of the company some space themed questions before they arrive in Cambridge.

What is your favourite space joke?

Andrea Sadler (Grandmother Smoo): What do you call a spaceship with water dripping from it? A crying saucer.

Q and A with the cast of The Beekeeper of Aleppo

This week we welcome The Beekeeper of Aleppo, a compassionate and heartfelt new stage adaptation of Christy Lefteri's popular book of the same title.

The story follows Beekeeper Nuri and his wife Afra, as they navigate the emotional and challenging journey out of their worn-torn country to the UK in search for family and a safe space to call home.

We caught up with Joseph Long and Roxy Faridany to ask them a few questions about the show and what makes the story so poignant.

5 minutes with the cast of Abigail's Party

Written by Mike Leigh and first performed in 1977, Abigail's Party is still widely regarded as a national treasure and a must-see play. We are thrilled to welcome a brand-new production of this classic comedy next week from London Classic Theatre and before the cast arrived, we caught up with them to ask them a few questions about the show...

Before joining the production, had anyone seen the play before? If so, were you nervous about stepping into such iconic roles?
