SISATA presents Tess of the d’Urbervilles by Thomas Hardy – adapted and directed by Charmaine K Parkin: Tuesday 28th June to Saturday 2nd July.

Heckcelsior presents Hardcross written and directed by Dominika Visy: Tuesday 5th to Saturday 9th July. When Rodney Hardcross’ death is announced, his children reluctantly gather, however, before his testament can be revealed, Rodney has one final request that outrages everyone.
