These critically acclaimed productions star well know actors such as David Suchet, David Tennant and Catherine Tate.

Each production was captured live and filmed by Digital Theatre at theatres such as the Apollo and Wyndham's in London's West End.

Long Day's Journey Into Night won the Olivier award for best West End revival and will be shown February 10.

It stars David Suchet who played the famous Belgian detective Poirot and Laurie Metcalfe.

The Comedy of Errors, one of Shakespeare's early comedies, was devised specifically for families by the RSC showing March 11.

It is fast paced exploring mistaken identities and relations lost and found.

Much Ado About Nothing stars comic Catherine Tate playing the role of Beatrice.

Dr Who fans will recognise David Tennant playing Benedick and the production had an award winning and record-breaking West End run.

Beatrice and Benedick are adamant in their mutual dislike while Claudio and Hero are deep in love and the two stories take an unexpected course.

Tickets for all events are on sale from Alive Corn Exchange box office.
