Welcome to 16th Ave Theatre


THE PINK HAMMER: 14 June – 1 July

Written by Michele Amas. Directed by Geraldine Broderick.

Four women answer a flyer for a ladies-only woodwork class. They turn up expecting empowerment and sisterhood from the advertised tutor, Maggie Taylor, but when they arrive, Maggie’s gone AWOL. Maggie’s husband, Woody, doesn’t want a bunch of crazy women playing with his tools, but he doesn’t have a choice.

THE LADYKILLERS: 30 August – 16 September

Written by Graham Linehan. Directed by Wayne Gould.

Sweet old Mrs. Wilberforce has new tenants, but they’re not the musicians they claim to be… they could even be train robbers. If Mrs. W should stumble into their secret, her life could be in danger. Alec Guinness and Peter Sellers delivered the danger in this classic 1950s comedy.

SEASON’S GREETINGS: 22 November – 9 December

Written by Alan Ayckbourn. Directed by Julie Lankshear.

It is a black, though often farcical, comedy about 4 days in the life of a dysfunctional family. Starting on Christmas Eve and set in an average suburban house.
