Elf is based on the beloved 2003 New Line Cinema film and tells the charming and funny tale of Buddy who is mistakenly raised as an eld in the North Pole after crawling into Santa’s sack as a child. After realising that he doesn’t fit in with all the other elves, Santa finally tells him the truth and Buddy heads to New York to find his birth father. After causing some mayhem in Manhattan, falling in love and discovering the gift of family, Buddy helps New York remember the true meaning of Christmas.

The Enfield Haunting (Opens 30th November)
Based on the true story and first-hand accounts of one of the ghost hunters, The Enfield Haunting tells the story of an ordinary working-class family from a north London council estate that became the center of one of the most famous poltergeist events in the world.
The Hodgson family had no idea what a poltergeist was until the summer of 1977 when furniture and toys started moving of their own accord in their family home. The play follows the events of one night in the spring of 1978 when the ghostly events reached a climax.
The horror play is set to star comedy icon Catherine Tate (Dr Who/ The Catherine Tate Show) as Peggy Hodgson, a single mother trying to protect her three children from the disturbing happenings. It will also star David Threlfall (Shameless) as Maurice Gross, the paranormal investigator involved with the case.
This will be the world premiere of this major new play written by Paul Unwin (Co-creator of the world’s longest running medical drama Casualty) and is sure to send shivers down the spines of audiences’ night after night.
