About the perfomances:

Blithe Spirit
As research for his next novel, Charles Condomine engages a medium, Madame Arcati, to conduct a séance, which inadvertently raises the ghost of his late wife, Elvira. For Charles’s current wife, Ruth, Elvira’s presence is no laughing matter, particularly since Elvira seems eager to reclaim her former husband – either in this world or the next. 

Fiddler on the Roof
This affectionately humorous portrait of life in a Jewish village in Tsarist Russia centres on Tevye, a milkman-philosopher who finds his values challenged by his daughters’ insistence on following their hearts rather than the dictates of tradition. Meanwhile, more sinister changes are on the horizon – ones that threaten the community’s very existence. 

Waiting for Godot
“What are we doing here, that is the question,” says Vladimir as he and Estragon await their rendezvous with the mysterious Godot. The question takes on a cosmic significance as the two hapless tramps struggle to make sense of their predicament, abandoned in a universe of comic absurdity shot through with moments of nameless terror.
