If Helen ever had a mojo, she’s certainly lost it now. When Dennis turns up, all charm and champagne, it looks as though she may have found her rescuer. But there’s always a catch, isn’t there?

At once a bizarre rom-com and a celebration of the power of theatre, Groundswell’s compelling new production marks a return to the Alma after their critical success at last year’s Edinburgh Fringe.

Praise for Groundswell’s previous production, Three For Two:
“a gorgeous piece of theatre” – Liverpool Sound and Vision **** and a half stars

“a real gem of pure theatre and beautiful acting” – Broadway Baby *****

“engaging, enticing, meticulously observed” – Remote Goat *****

 The first convict ship arrives in Botany Bay, 1788, crammed with England’s outcasts. Colony discipline in the vast and alien land is brutal.

To alleviate some of the stresses of the camp the ambitious Second Lieutenant Ralph Clark proposes putting on a play. As the mostly illiterate cast rehearses, and a sense of common purpose begins to take hold, the young officer’s own transformation is as marked and poignant as that of his prisoners.

Timberlake Wertenbaker’s modern classic, ‘Our Country’s Good’ celebrates the how the redemptive power of art helped to build a civilised society in this play based on true events.

Once upon a time, way back in the days of old, on the edge of a forest there was life - magical creatures, astonishing beings and blossoming nature.

The fairy stories of the Grimm Brothers have endured as the most timeless tales of all.  This year, the Knight's Players are proud to present a few stories from this extraordinary collection. 

From beloved characters, such as Little Red Riding Hood and the twins, Hansel and Gretel, to sinister spirits; from goodwill strangers, to evil step-parent; from the lightest of melodies to the darkest of spells; from humble beginnings to fantastical ends - these are our stories for us to tell.

The Knight's Players is a youth theatre based in Clifton for children aged 6 - 14.  Established in 2007 by educator Ben Knight, the ensemble provides a wonderful opportunity for pupils to learn about, and engage in, the performing arts.
