Lerner and Loewe’s My Fair Lady

May 4 – December 22

This timeless classic has been dazzling audiences since its debut on Broadway in 1956. Based on the play Pygmalion by Bernard Shaw, it’s the story of Eliza Doolittle, a cockney flower girl caught in the middle of a bet between Henry Higgins, a professor of phonetics and Colonel Pickering, a fellow linguist. With unforgettable songs such as “On the Street Where You Live,” “I Could Have Danced All Night” and “Wouldn’t It Be Loverly?” My Fair Lady is one of the most beloved musicals of all time – and now it’s returning to The Shaw!


Sherlock Holmes and the Mystery of the Human Heart

July 24 – October 13

Sherlock Holmes has never met a villain so clever, so compelling and so lethal. Has Holmes finally met his match? Find out in this new play by Reginald Candy, which delves deeper into the lives of the legendary detective, his trusted confidant Watson and Mrs Hudson, the landlady of 221B Baker Street. It’s the third in our series, and it’s filled with enough twists and turns to leave even Sir Arthur Conan Doyle guessing what happens next. The game is afoot!


One Man, Two Guvnors

June 6 – October 13


What do you do when you’re employed by a murderous gangster and a wealthy snob? You do everything in your power to make sure they never meet! This modern take on Carlo Goldoni’s Commedia dell’arte classic, The Servant of Two Masters, has it all: romantic romps, criminal capers and some of the funniest dialogue this side of Brighton. It’s a sure-fire crowd-pleaser that will not only keep you on the edge of your seat but will pull you right out of it!


At the Royal George Theatre: The Secret Garden

May 31 – October 13

Mary Lennox is a selfish, spoiled ten-year-old whose life takes a turn for the worse after she is left orphaned in India. Forced to move in with her reclusive uncle in Yorkshire, she is lonely and miserable—until she discovers a secret garden that’s been locked away for years. As she tends to the dormant roses and overgrown vines, she soon finds that the flowers aren’t the only things that are beginning to bloom. Adapted from Frances Hodgson Burnett’s beloved children’s novel, this enchanting story explores the theme of finding your true nature where you least expect it.



Agatha Christie’s Witness for the Prosecution

April 6 – October 13

When a wealthy, older woman is found brutally murdered, there is only one suspect: her handsome, charming, and much-younger lover. Sure, he has a motive, but did he actually do it? Due to a strict, no-spoilers policy, we can’t answer that question. Here’s what we can say: the play is full of clever twists, witty dialogue and rising tension. If you’re a fan of riveting courtroom dramas, don’t miss this shocker.
