Miss Julie
By August Strindberg, in a new version by David Eldridge

A RAODS Production

The classic play exploring gender, sex and power

Midsummer’s Eve is Miss Julie’s time, a night filled with desire when rules are broken, class barriers are set aside and the young mistress of the manor can dance with whomever she pleases. She chooses Jean, her father’s valet, and for a few hours through the long twilight they play an increasingly dangerous game of ‘what if’?

Lilies On The Land
By The Lions Part

A RAODS Outdoor Production

In association with Romsey Festival (

Paying tribute to the fortitude of women on the home front.

A revealing, funny and wonderfully moving portrait of four women who sign up to join the Women’s Land Army during World War II. The play was devised and first performed by The Lions Part.

Based on one hundred and fifty letters and interviews with original Land Girls, along with songs from the period, Lilies on the Land charts the personal journeys of four women who join the Women's Land Army – determined to work endless backbreaking hours on farms across the country in a bid to do their best for the War Effort.

But how do these women, all hailing from different walks of life, torn from their families and bereft of all basic home comforts, deal with the hardships of farming life and the pressures of war? Maybe work clothes full of mice and toilet rolls falling from the sky are just what it takes for these girls to get through…


We are delighted to return to the beautiful gardens of Island House, Greatbridge, for our outdoor show this year.

The Pillowman
By Martin McDonagh

A RAODS Production

Telling stories can be very dangerous...

From the award winning writer/director of In Bruges, Seven Psycopaths and Hangmen comes arguably his greatest play.

A part-time writer is interrogated under extreme conditions in a police state because some of his stories match exactly the M.O. of recent child killings . What is the writer's connection to the murders, if any? Why has his brother also been brought in for questioning? What else is the writer hiding? What are his stories about? And what dark secret is he concealing?

This multi-layered  play, which challenges & shocks, also has a rich seam of black humour running through it. This is a unique theatrical experience, so don't miss it!

"Sometimes you're in a play and you feel it can only go one way, here it's like whiplash "
Billy Crudup on the Broadway production of Pillowman

The Wit and Songs of Noel Coward
By Peter Gill

Pianist and entertainer, Peter Gill presents a tribute to the wit and song-writing skill of that most English of Englishmen, Noel Coward, who said of himself I am an enormously talented man and there is no point  in denying  it. Born in 1899, Coward was an actor, writer, composer, director, producer, and in later life painter– and he excelled at them all. Peter will remind us of his dazzling wit and perform such gems as A Bar on The Piccola Marina, Don’t Let’s Be Beastly To The Germans, Mrs Worthington, There Are Bad Times Just Around The Corner and Mad Dogs & Englishmen.

'A splendid evening's entertainment’
The Noel Coward Society

'Just to say thanks for a great evening with Noel Coward yesterday.
The music and stories were both superbly done and everyone really
enjoyed themselves.'

Pop-Up Bowie
By Paul Antony

The award winning 'Pop Up Bowie'. A stunning tribute to David Bowie.

'Pop Up Bowie' performs the greatest hits of David Bowie, from every era of 'the guy's' career from the 70's through to the nineties and beyond. The front man, Paul Antony, a huge fan of Bowie, accurately portrays the charismatic performance of his hero.

Paul's vocal and visual likeness to David is remarkable. Pop-Up Bowie recently had the pleasure of performing an acoustic gig for Maggi Ronson, sister of the legendary 'Spider from Mars' and Bowie side man Mick Ronson.  

'Singing for Maggi Ronson was an amazing and emotional moment for me'' Paul said.

In the words of the David Bowie Official Fan Club, 'Amazing'
