Loyalty – Lady Montague and Lady Capulet

Coming Soon – Dates to be Announced

We are thrilled to partner with Gin Palace Productions for our new production: “Loyalty – Lady Montague and Lady Capulet”.

What happens after ‘Romeo and Juliet’? Lady Montague waits for Lady Capulet – a long standing family rivalry hides a long forgotten friendship. What happened to them? What have they become? And is there any way through this minefield of feelings, trying to remember who they are, versus what is expected of them as wives and mothers?

A play about loyalty: to family, to your children, your partner – and most of all to yourself: what you know and feel to be right. A poignant, sometimes funny, sometimes tragic look at the lives of two women who we know so little about.

Features the magnificent Sam Nixon and the wonderful Suse Crosby.

Press Pack available soon

Waiting for Curry

(L to R) Susanne Crosby, Matt Grief, Alex Louise, Alexander Bond

Four friends: two couples, and a lot of history.

The wine flows as they wait for their takeaway, they start catching up, as friends do – but there is something different about tonight.

Private thoughts start spilling over into polite conversation and suddenly they are sharing far more than they intended: longings, jealousies, and a secret past.

It’s an evening that changes them and their friendships forever.


Twilight Theatre premiered the acclaimed comedy drama Waiting for Curry  by award winning Brighton based playwright Susanne Crosby to Hove Grown Festival in 2017.

A new incarnation went on to receive huge popular and critical success in the Brighton Fringe Festival 2018 with sold out shows and two extra performances due to demand.

We were invited by the Kings Head Theatre in London to perform there in January 2019.

James Roy on Meridian FM’s review 5 stars Review 

Fringe Review classed it as “highly recommended” in both 2018 and 2017 and gave it brilliant reviews, for the writing, direction and all of the actors. Excerpts:

” There’s an added depth to this new version, and some very funny awkwardness. And a smash hit for several reasons.”

” …it’s a more complex play, even if indeed it hinges on rekindled attraction between Sue and Rob, and the reasons Rob honourably withdrew so many years back. For Sue he’s the one. For Rob, it’s not so certain. Matt Grief – the one survivor from the original cast – deftly layers a far more complex role than his initial gruff materialism lets on.

Crosby’s particular achievement lies in characterising four distinct individuals whose motivations – revealed in four monologues as the others freeze – show none of them shallow but awkward and less articulate when interacting. “

“There’s a social reckoning, a denouement, and a very unexpected plot point. It’s the kind of thing you’d expect from someone who knows what percentages can do. This version has a new emotional depth and residual wisdom with some fine lines – especially when Rob somehow blames Chris for his actions.

Grief’s baffled and compromised decency’s a thing that has you revolving the truth of it after you’ve left. Is he being truthful? Is he deluding himself in his protestations? We want to know. The cast’s uniformly convincing – Bond’s perfect subfusc, Crosby does hurt crossness and your heart goes out to Louise. But Grief’s layerings and self-contradictions as Rob perhaps carry the palm.

In its unassuming clarity it hooks universal feelings into a moment. It’s an excellent play and cast needing wider circulation; the audience again was packed. There’s a quietly sad magic to this low-key play; people recognize themselves in it. It speaks.”

Our Heroes

When the Kings Head Theatre invited us to perform “Waiting for Curry” at their prestigious venue we were over the moon. Of course we said yes. But the reality of taking it there dawned on us – that we needed extra help. We put together a Crowdfunder to help us get there and below are some of the heroes whose generosity made it possible to take it to London.

Heartfelt thanks to our supporters:

Paddy Cooper ~ Lesley Louise ~ Eleanor ~ Lianne Garcia ~ Emma Howarth

Helen Smith ~ Sam Anthony ~ Olover Watt ~ Rose Hall-Smith
