My team had a wonderful time with you last year and we were so very grateful for the support from the local community which is at the heart of repertory theatre. We have a great lineup of plays for you this year with one of the greatest thrillers ever written, a brilliant comedy from Britain’s most prolific playwright and a wonderful stage adaptation of a classic novel. We look forward to seeing you soon for another summer of theatre!” Paul Taylor-Mills

Paul is considered to be one of the most exciting young directors and producers in England today. He is the Artistic Director of Andrew Lloyd’s Webber’s new London theatre, The Other Palace.
