Wyndhams Theatre
22 February

Up Oldham way,
the last hangman of all
hangs up his hat.

He knows the score,
he'll keep his council, but
if you push

he'll talk. He'll hold the floor.
Pull up a chair, he'll say,
let's have a pint,

and more. He knows this game
of noose around the neck,
and how quickly we move

rage to regret.

Hangmen runs at the Wyndhams Theatre until 5 March

Nell Gwynn

4 February
Apollo Theatre

She knows her price 
all right, this girl 
plucked from the pit,
this bit of a girl, this chit
who treads the boards
as though it were her right;
one day a whore, the next
a queen whose heart 
and tongue and wit will set 
the King alight. 

Nell Gwynn, a Shakespeare's Globe production,
runs at the Apollo Theatre until 30 April

Hardboiled: The Fall of Sam Shadow

New Diorama Theatre

16 February

In the darkness

there are accidents:

blood spilled, hearts broken.

You need a thick skin

and a sharp eye

just to see through the smoke.

Hardboiled is a co-production between Rhum and Clay, The Watermill Theatre and Beth Flintoff.
Hardboiled runs at the New Diorama Theatre until 27 February
