'Nuclear Families'

You’d better come and dine tonight – I’m on a diet, so there’s only spinach.

Family Album
The Featherways family have gathered to mourn their father. But the siblings are not on their best behaviour. A social comedy wickedly poking fun at Victorian sentiment.

Hands Across the Sea 
Naval officer Peter Gilpin and his wife ‘Piggie’ are the most eccentric party hosts in London. A glittering comedy reminiscent of Hay Fever

The Astonished Heart
A brilliant psychiatrist, Christian appears to have the perfect life. Then he meets Leonora…A drama of secrecy and betrayal. 

Three of the nine short plays which make up Coward's Tonight At 8.30, which is presented as a repertory programme comprising three shows. Check the theatre's site for specific dates and times.

“The thrilling cast of nine juggle 73 roles among them... Acute chemistry and razor-sharp comedic timing.”

Cindy Marcolina (Broadway World)

“[Family Album and Hands across the Sea] show Coward at his best... The Astonished Heart: laboured drama of metropolitan adultery”

Michael Arditti (Express)

“Some of the best one-sided phone conversations on any stage ever, and Ricketts as the most intimidatingly smug of parlourmaids.”

Libby Purves (TheatreCat, Times)

“A charismatic ensemble buzz with energy.”

Rosemary Waugh (The Stage)

“Littler has pulled off an extraordinary feat at the tiny Jermyn.”

Paul Taylor (The Independent)

“Performed by a dizzyingly multi-tasking ensemble on a diminutive stage.”

Sam Marlowe (The Times, The Stage, Time Out, Arts Desk)
