Don't miss our next production - a superb play by the Oscar winning screenwriter, Anthony Minghella ... staged in the theatre named after him, at QUAY ARTS, NEWPORT for two performances only: April 12 and 26.


'Whale Music' is a funny, thoughtful, and moving portrayal of the lives of a group of women. Caroline comes back to the Isle of Wight to have a baby, and is soon surrounded by her friends. But times have changed. How will they react to her, and each other?

The play was Oscar-winning screenwriter Anthony Minghella's first stage success and we are delighted to bring it back to the stage in his beloved Isle of Wight, and to add our own touches, including original music and images created by Island video artist, short film and music maker, Paul Windridge.  Find out more about Paul and his work here

Remember - there are only two performances, April 12 and 26, so call the Quay Arts booking line now on 01983 822490.

Here comes Summer!

Audiences at Shanklin Theatre loved our production of 39 Steps, based on the Hitchcock film of the same name, in August last year.

A few examples of the feedback we received:  'Better than the London West End' .... 'Absolutely brilliant' .... 'Enjoyed it tremendously' ... 'Highest quality production'

And the good news is ... we're back again this Summer! This time with a furiously fast and funny farce. Look out!
