CTW announce their next season

So here it is, CTW's new “bums-on-seats” season 2014-2015. A whiff of weekly rep, perhaps, with farce and Christie in the mix, but a varied season, including sure-fire favourites at the Old Court like Stags and Hens, Terry Pratchett and Blackadder.
It all kicks off in September with Irish playwright Connor McPherson's 2009 reworking of the Daphne Du Maurier novella The Birds, best known of course in its Hitchcock incarnation.
And I'm pleased to see in amongst the crowd-pleasers one of the most innovative shows to come out of the National Theatre in recent years, Mike Bartlett's Earthquakes in London, and to end the season, Midsummer, a “play with songs” by David Greig & Gordon McIntyre, which had a successful run on the London Fringe - part love story, part Edinburgh guide, part drama and part philosophical treatise about today's middle-class, thirty-somethings ...
