Welcome to HLT’s 2019 subscription series.
Our 65th anniversary year has a line-up that I’m sure will not disappoint. First up, to mark the passing of legendary playwright Neil Simon, is his 1976 comedy California Suite. This is followed by an Irish comedy set in a haunted house, The Spirit of Annie Ross. Then there’s a quirky, heartwarming drama based on an award-winning Dutch children’s story, The Book of Everything. Following that is Alan Ayckbourn’s black comedy Neighbourhood Watch. Then in November there’s a festive period comedy involving a Sherlock Holmes actor and his friends who have to solve a crime on their own doorstep, The Game's Afoot, or Holmes for the Holidays.
HLT started offering subscriptions nearly 30 years ago, and we’re delighted and humbled to say that some audience members have been subscribers ever since. The HLT Studio kicked off in 2014 as way to enhance our mainstream offering, and in 2019 there will be two Studio productions and a playreading. What a choice: seven local productions: five mainstream and two fringe plus a playreading.
Our subscription rates not only offer exceptional savings but also allow preferential booking dates. The subscription rate for the five main shows represents a 20% saving.
Thank you for your patronage, because without you there would be no theatre. We look forward to welcoming you at HLT for our 65th anniversary year in 2019.
