    My Fair Lady
    by Alan Jay Lerner & Frederick Lowe

    Director: Tom Sainsbury
    Musical Director: Richard Campbell

    Wednesday 13 Friday 22 December*, 7.30pm, main stage *(no performance on 18 December)
    Matinees: Saturday 16 & Sunday 17 December, 3pm

    Lerner and Loewe’s much-loved, multi award-winning musical brought to our Putney stage!

    A chance meeting between two noted British linguists, Professor Henry Higgins and Colonel Hugh Pickering, leads to a wager that will test Higgins' skills. After they hear a cockney flower girl in the street, Higgins makes a bet with Pickering that he can transform the girl, Eliza Doolittle into a refined lady that could convince anyone that she was a 'proper lady'. After some hesitation, Eliza agrees to become their test case, and as we see the relationships between the trio develop and grow, the question becomes 'who is really being transformed?'  Boasting a score including the classic songs I Could Have Danced All Night, Get Me to the Church on Time, Wouldn’t It Be Loverly, On the Street Where You Live, The Rain in Spain, and I’ve Grown Accustomed to Her Face.

    The Children
    by Lucy Kirkwood

    Directed by Carrie Cable

    Tuesday 20  Saturday 24 February 2024, 7.45pm, studio

    The setting is an old, isolated cottage near the sea. Hazel and Robin are eking out their lives as the world around them crumbles. Something has gone very wrong at the nearby nuclear power station and the local area has been devastated. There has been a radiation leak and electricity and water have been rationed. Then Rose, an old colleague arrives. They reminisce on their lives, love affairs, marriage, parenthood and ageing. 

    But all three were nuclear scientists who worked at the plant in their youth.

    The implications of the disaster and consequences for the land, the environment and the young scientists and others who work at the plant are becoming clear and the conversations take a different turn.


    The play premiered at The Royal Court Theatre in 2016 and has been performed in the USA, Canada and Australia. The Guardian placed the play third on its list of greatest theatrical works since 2000.

     ‘Kirkwood…has…written a genuinely disturbing play: one not simply about nuclear power but about the heavy price we may pay in the future for the profligacy of the present’. - The Guardian

    ‘…a richly suggestive and beautifully written piece of work…Kirkwood is the most rewarding dramatist of her generation.’ —The Independent

    ‘THE CHILDREN is tantalisingly hard to define: it is about aging and responsibility…It is very English, somewhat menacing, and often funny…What THE CHILDREN is not is a polemic about the oft-cited irresponsibility of baby boomers; instead it rather penetratingly asks what they owe younger generations, exactly. —Time Out.

    a LIFELIKE THEATRE production


    a new play by Ben Clare

    Tuesday 27 February - Saturday 2 March 2024 at 7.45pm

    Three sisters are reunited at Tumbledown, their childhood home, following the sudden death of their father, a famous children’s author.

As the wine is poured and the rain lashes down outside, the truth begins to be spilled in this dark, gripping family thriller. 

    Previous plays by Ben Clare have been seen at Rose Theatre Kingston, New Wimbledon Studio, and the Underbelly at the Edinburgh Fringe. He recently directed Sense and Sensibility and The Wolves at Putney Arts Theatre.


    Starring Emma Bugg, Olivia Jackson and Catherine Roche.

    by Mike Bartlett

    Directed by Stuart Watson

    Tuesday 19 - Saturday 23 March 2024, 7.45pm, main stage
    Matinee: Saturday 23 March, 3pm

    Moral and progressive young heroine Phoebe Virtue disguises herself as an IT consultant and journeys to London to rescue her brother Jack from the temptations of the depraved metropolis, where she suspects he is taking drugs and reading the Daily Telegraph.

    Meanwhile, vampy, scheming Lady Susan Climber attempts to ascend the ladder of influence and land a breakfast TV spot by getting cancelled for being outrageous on social media. Their fates collide in a night of mayhem, mistaken identities, and mind-blowing sex at the Netflix masked ball.

    Mike Bartlett’s post-pandemic love letter to the reopened theatres is a rollicking modern take on Restoration comedy that holds a satirical mirror up to the fads and fashions of our time, as well as a joyful celebration of London.

    Tickets available soon
