Scribble is a gem of a musical comedy about a group of downtown boo-hoo boys surviving on double shots of human spirit. In ‘Scribble’ people who are down but not out – broke, lonely, ugly, fat, crippled and shy – keep their hopes alive through a suggestion box at the bar at Basil’s Ballroom. Here they jot down their dreams – anything from a free beer or a new TV to a new life. There’s a bar stool permanently reserved for the special guest they know will one day arrive to hand out a few miracles.

The National Theatre brings another Greek tragedy to the stage at the Abbey, following the acclaimed production of ‘Medea’ starring Fiona Shaw. Euripides’ ‘Iphigenia at Aulis’ is a powerful examination of nationalism and the price of war, told through the eyes of one family and their eldest daughter, Iphigenia. This contemporary production will be directed by Katie Mitchell, whose work includes ‘The Phoenician Women’ for the Royal Shakespeare Company and the critically acclaimed production of ‘The Oresteia’ at the Royal National Theatre in London.
