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'

"Heart warming, theatrical fun" (The Stage)
"a full, faithful rendition of the stories, played with wit and passion" (Leamington Courier)

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).

Show Times:
Saturday 25th August, 2pm & 7:30pm
Sunday 26th August 5pm

The Midnight Gang  
"A dream of a show, doing justice to the book" (Northumberland Gazette)

David Walliams' bestselling children's book 'The Midnight Gang' hits the outdoor stage in this fun-filled adaptation! The Heartbreak team is back to raise money for a new MRI scanner for the children's ward at the struggling Lord Funt Hospital, home to the villainous Matron and a scary-looking porter. Will the children ever have any fun? Watch as at the stroke of midnight chaos ensues and five children rebel by forming the Midnight Gang.

But just where do they go? When twelve-year-old Tom arrives at the hospital he is determined to find out. A heart warming and funny series of events are to follow in the Midnight Gang's quest for adventure. Follow Porter and the Midnight Gang into the basement of Lord Funt's and discover a world of friendship, excitement, and inspiration as they make their dreams come true.

Show Times:
Saturday 1st September, 2pm & 6:30pm
