The Ministry Of Fear (2010)

by Graham Greene

When Arthur Rowe bumbles into a garden fête during the Blitz he’s haunted by his past and innocent of his future. But from the moment he enters Mrs Bellairs’ fortune-teller’s tent he trips into a hell of corruption and betrayal where he’s way, way out of his depth.

With a powerful whiff of Hitchcock and echoes of film noir classic The Third Man, The Ministry of Fear is both taut espionage thriller and unnerving portrait of a mind in free fall. Renowned for creating exciting and imaginative work, Theatre Alibi brings its unique style to Graham Greene’s surreal masterpiece.

A co-production with Exeter Northcott & Oxford Playhouse.

Table Mates

A new play by Daniel Jamieson

Three cooks, three very different lives. Each course tells a story.

Six O’clock comes and three weary workers return to their cosy abode. With the barest of hellos, they take off their coats and put on their chefs whites. They are Starter, Main and Pudding and each night, without fail, they cook each other a delicious meal. Starter makes starter, Main makes main and Pudding makes pudding.

They soon set to work in the kitchen, dancing round each other like Morecambe and Wise making breakfast. Starter fashions an exquisite nibble of microscopic, but mouthwatering delight. Main conjures a dish that carries her heart home on a whiff of basil and lime. Pudding steams a duff the size of a football, so no-one need fear going hungry. Three cooks, three very different lives. Each course tells a story.

Theatre Alibi combine vivid storytelling, live music and a good old boogie to bring this funny and creative household to life.
