HT Rep is back for 2020

In September 2018 the new HT Rep sold 3,555 tickets across the 3 shows, and 20% of the audience came to see all three shows.

Fast forward to August 2019, and the second HT Rep opened for a second season with Godber comedy ‘On The Piste’, followed by ‘Deathtrap’ and ‘The 39 Steps’.

Across the 2019 rep season we were delighted to see audience growth of almost 20% and this time over a third of the audience came to see all three of the HT Rep shows.

We are back for the third year of HT Rep in 2020, and I’m delighted to be able to confirm the three shows are follows:

Men of the World

Preparing for a mystery trip to Scarborough Stick, Larry and Frank, a trio of northern coach drivers, take a trip down memory lane. Hop aboard Men of the World, a John Godber classic bursting with compassion, nostalgia and humour.

Abigail’s Party

Fancy joining us for a few drinks at Beverley and Lawrence’s house?

They’ve invited the new neighbours round, and divorced Sue from down the street is coming along while her teenage daughter Abigail has a bit of a birthday party at home. Bev is ready to dance the night away, and Lawrence is ready to drink it away.

Abigail’s Party is a funny and nostalgic look back at the trials, tribulations and aspirations of married life in the seventies. Written by BAFTA Award Winner Mike Leigh in collaboration with the original cast, Abigail’s Party was a roaring sensation when it first aired on the BBC in 1977.  


It’s London in 1880. Bella Manningham is well off with a nice home and servants - yet she’s lonely. She lives far from her family with her husband, Jack, who is stern and overbearing.  Strange things keep happening, too. Things keep going missing and then turning up again, and Bella thinks she’s hearing noises. Or is she? Before long she feels she may be losing her mind.

Gaslight is a psychological thriller so well known, it gave rise to the term ‘gaslighting’ used today in British law.

You can book all shows now and early bird ticket offers are available.
