Paige, hostess extraordinaire, is celebrating the publication of her husband’s best seller. The arrival of Mike, marooned in the foggy lane after crashing his van, provides an unexpected addition to the evening’s entertainment. A silent waiter, sourced from an obscure website, completes the picture. Primordial soup is first on the menu. –
Let the dinner from hell begin.
A wonderful satirical chiller, with blood on the carpet before bedtime.
“I'm really excited to put 20 years of being a professional rock n roll songwriter into spoken word and live performance. From the first Wildhearts album to the award winning 555%.
It's not a pretty story, but there is plenty of drama and it has a happy

If you saw Girls Night you won't want to miss this
Superbly directed by Susie Bundy, here is another Louise Roche's witty and touching story of a singing trio's friendship tested to the limit by lies, ambition and, of course, men!
Spanning 10 years, you will follow the highs and lows in the relationship of “The Diamonds” - Sadie, Lois and Serena. Their differing personalities, hang-ups and dreams are convincingly and entertainingly portrayed, and women of all ages will find something to relate to.
Men, too, gain a great insight into what women really talk to each other about and why female camaraderie is so important.
As the story unfolds through a well-thought-out mix of conversation, monologues and songs, you will come to understand and indeed empathise with the reasons why Lois was so self-absorbed and status-driven, why Sadie uses her sharp tongue and wit to mask a hard and tragic past, and why good-natured Serena found herself caught in the middle.
How they chose to deal with the resulting, inevitable breakdown in relations is delivered through a hilarious script that will have you laughing and crying with them.
Girl Band is a really great night out with well-executed string of songs such as ‘Man, I feel like a Woman’ ‘Beautiful’ ‘Think’ plus many more.
Book early to save disappointment!

Singer/songwriter Chris began his recording career in 1992 with the critically acclaimed album ‘Only Human’ and achieved Record Of The Week on Radio 2 with his song ‘We Were Children’. He has released four albums of original songs and legendary DJ ‘Whispering’ Bob Harris referred to him as one of his favourite artists of the year.
In 2010 Chris began touring with his solo show ‘The Music of John Denver’ celebrating the life and work of the legendary singer/songwriter in his own unique way. He has recorded several radio specials for the BBC and toured extensively in the North of England for the last three years. Chris was honoured to be asked to perform in Aspen, Colorado in October 2012 for the annual celebrations of John Denver's life and work.
He performed with Steve Weisberg, John Denver's lead guitar player on all his platinum albums during the 70's. Chris and Steve performed several concerts together, their final performance in Aspen being an unforgetable show at Windstar - Denver's eco awareness centre in the heart of the rocky mountains. John Denver's longtime friend Peter Plantec said after Chris and Steve's concert at Aspen Community Church, 'I wasn't watching John tonight but all of the magic was there.'

A Play by Peter Delaunay
Directed by Derekk Ross
Music by Martin Bills
Adapted from the novella Crooked Pathways by Charlie Newlands
A modern ghost story woven around the myths surrounding the Bucket of Blood public house in Hayle: a spooky comedy that includes a new sea shanty, composed especially for the play (along with a fully integrated musical score throughout) and sung by the Hayle male voice choir. You can watch the promotional video, please see above.
In a ghost story with a twist, Escape Theatre delve into a dark world in which existence and non-existence rub along uncomfortably together in an eerie but comic tale of odd Cornish goings-on. The play is a contemporary take on Cornish 'ghost story' mythology. It's about the dark side, and the outsider experience.
Tickets £10.00 / £8 concessions
A profesional pantomime in the run up to Christmas has become a regular in the Lane Theatre Diary.
Featuring an excellent cast of professional actors, Beauty and the Beast has all the elements you would expect from a Fame Factory Spotlight production. Written by Scott Clarkson an established writer of successful pantomimes and award winning children's shows, Beauty and the Beast delivers everything you would want from a pantomime.
In our version of Beauty and the Beast, you will experience comedy in bucket loads delivered by our larger than life Dame Muck-it-Up who is ably assisted by the dim witted and playful comedy character Raggins.
Following closely to the original story – the Evil Witch casts a dastardly spell on the handsome Prince, turning him into a Beast. Tricking the beautiful Belladonna, the Evil Witch forces her to be imprisoned within the home of the Beast. Living with someone so ugly, Belladonna slowly begins to see the man behind the mask and see the Prince for who he really is. Only true love can save the Prince and free our heroine before the petals on the encased rose fall.
With bags of comedy mishaps, gags, dances and songs this really is a fantastic fun show for all of the family offering something for both boys and girls along the way. A great fast paced hilarious pantomime kids and adults will love.
Beauty and the Beast is a spectacular and magical pantomime
with added Fame Factory Spotlight sparkle which promises comedy, fun,
craziness, moments of tenderness and romantic heart stopping moments too.
Not to mention lots of topical references and audience participation with
songs we all know and love.
Families of all ages won't be able to help but sing along and laugh out loud.
A regular feature on the Lane theatre calendar now, set yourself up for the Christmas festivities.
