Five Children and It
at Bath’s Egg Theatre
on Sunday 8th January, 3pm
Five Children and It makes a welcome return to Bath’s Egg Theatre appearing from Friday 9th December to Sunday 15th January, based on the children’s classic novel by E. Nesbit. Family audiences can look forward to this exhilarating production, back in Bath by popular demand and presented by award-winning theatre makers Bucket Club.
Sent away to live in the countryside with their reclusive Uncle, five children discover a secret that’s been hidden away for centuries: a magical, mischievous and extremely grumpy Sand Fairy from the dawn of time called ‘It’, with the power to grant spectacular wishes. There’s just one catch. As the children set off on a series of fantastic adventures, they soon learn that wishes can get you into a whole heap of trouble. Perhaps a wish granted isn’t always the dream come true you might expect!
The stage production of Five Children and It is written by Marietta Kirkbride and directed by Nel Crouch. Featuring original songs and music written by David Ridley, this show is recommended for everyone aged 6 years and over.

at Bath Theatre Royal
on Monday 16th January at 7.30pm
Alan Ayckbourn’s uproariously funny classic, Relatively Speaking appears at the Theatre Royal Bath from Thursday 12th to Saturday 21st January starring Liza Goddard, Steven Pacey, Antony Eden and Olivia Le Andersen, directed by Robin Herford, at the start of a new UK tour.
Greg only met Ginny a month ago but he has already made up his mind that she’s the girl for him. When she tells him that she’s going to visit her parents, he decides this is the moment to ask her father for his daughter’s hand. Discovering a scribbled address, he follows her to Buckinghamshire where he finds Philip and Sheila enjoying a peaceful Sunday morning breakfast in the garden. The only thing is - they’re not Ginny’s parents!
Beautifully crafted and charmingly English, this hilarious comedy of misunderstandings was Alan Ayckbourn’s first West End hit, turning him into a household name. When Relatively Speaking opened at the Duke of York’s Theatre in 1967, the critics hailed the arrival of a great new comic talent, with Noël Coward praising the young writer on creating “a beautifully constructed and very funny comedy”.
One of the UK’s favourite actresses, Liza Goddard stars as Sheila. Liza’s extensive range of Ayckbourn credits include Life of Riley, Communicating Doors and Season’s Greetings, and her many TV credits include Doctor Who and Bergerac. Starring as Philip, Steven Pacey’s forty year career has spanned stage and screen ranging from Blake’s 7 to The Phantom of the Opera. Antony Eden, who plays Greg, has recently been seen in the West End in Harry Potter and the Cursed Child and The Woman in Black. Olivia Le Andersen, who plays Ginny, has appeared in the films Johnny English Strikes Again and The King of Thieves, and performed at London’s Arts Theatre, Bridge Theatre and Jermyn Street Theatre.
To book tickets for Relatively Speaking call the Theatre Royal Bath Box Office on 01225 448844 or visit www.theatreroyal.org.uk
