Heartbreak Productions theatre can be summarised in a few words ' fun, inventive and interactive. They have been a touring company for over 25 years with the number of shows created and adapted extending to over 50.

In recent years, Heartbreak has been touring an outdoor season of shows each summer throughout the UK including a family show, a classic with a twist and an adaptation of Shakespeare.

Heartbreak Productions focus on the uniqueness of theatre and particularly the ever-changing relationship between the audience and the actor, which means their audience is encouraged to get involved and not just sit back and let the actors do all the work! They want their work to be the best, collaborating with actors, designers, composers and crew to create a special and exciting experience for their audiences.

Heartbreak's adaptations are based on the 'play within a play' approach. Using this mechanism allows them the freedom to put their own twist on popular texts, providing more opportunities for character development and audience participation. They hope you'll see the play from a new perspective'

Heartbreak wants you to join them at Elsie's Garden Party in aid of The British Red Cross!
The Great War may be over, but the Red Cross needs your support more than ever. Come along and relax in the charming gardens, meet our heroes, and be entertained by the debut performance of Much Ado About Nothing. For Hero and Claudio it's love at first sight, while Benedick and Beatrice carry on a charade of witty insults that hides their true feelings. Hearts will be won and lost and won again as war makes way for masked balls, gossip, deception, and true love.
Join Heartbreak Productions for this playful outdoor adaptation of one of Shakespeare's most popular comedies, Much Ado About Nothing. Garden chairs are limited so please bring along something suitable to sit on, a waterproof garment should the weather turn bad, and a picnic (we are still on rations after all!).

Attention passengers! We are sorry to announce that all services out of Giggleswick Station are delayed!

Gather around Bobbie, Peter and Phyllis on platform one as they pass the time by sharing the classic tale of The Railway Children. Living by the railway line, the children spend quite a bit of time watching the trains and making some unexpected friendships. There is the old gentleman who regularly takes the 9.15 train and helps them solve the mystery of what happened to their father, and the Russian immigrant who teaches them that compassion and understanding cross all boundaries.

All aboard! Full steam ahead! Find your travel companions and take your seats (bring your seats actually, and a picnic) for Heartbreak Productions' outdoor adaptation of The Railway Children, a classic children's tale by Edith Nesbit.

Hoorah! Heartbreak Productions is pleased to announce that the Prince Regent is coming to visit. You are hereby required to attend an etiquette lesson hosted by The Association of Higher Etiquette and Manners (A.H.E.M.), who will educate you in the politesse of high society.

Join Heartbreak, the Bennet sisters, and a host of charming young bachelors (yes, Mr Darcy will be there. No really, yes, that Mr Darcy) for an evening of comedy, romance, and more than one come-uppance, as we learn how to behave, ahem, properly.

Champagne and cucumber sandwiches are permitted at this outdoor adaptation of Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice, but do ensure you know how to properly use a napkin, remember to chew with your mouths closed, and please try not to fall in love with Mr Darcy, as we believe he is very soon to be engaged. (You may also want to bring a blanket or chair to sit on and an umbrella, should the weather look inclement).

Drum roll please' Heartbreak invites you to join us in fundraising for an MRI scanner for use at The Lord Funt Hospital.

Tom and his friends will be there, too, but you might know them best as The Midnight Gang. When everyone else is sweetly sleeping, they gather in the middle of the night in the name of magic, mischief, and memory making. Join Heartbreak and the gang on this crucial mission to overcome our greatest fears and uncover the magic ingredient to a fantastic friendship.

Bring your chairs, blankets, picnics, (perhaps a brolly) and be prepared to be daring at this outdoor adaptation of David Walliams' bestseller. Who knows where the night may lead?
