With family and friendships under strain and a guinea-pig café struggling to keep afloat, Fleabag suddenly finds herself with nothing to lose.

From The Royal Ballet’s classical origins in the works of Marius Petipa, to the home-grown choreographers who put British ballet on the world stage, this mixed programme highlights the versatility of the Company.

Choreography: Kenneth MacMillan (Concerto), Frederick Ahston (Enigma Variations), Rudolf Nureyev after Marius Petipa (Raymond Act III). Music: Dmitry Shostakovich (Concerto), Edward Elgar (Enigma Variations), Alexander Glazunov (Raymond Act III).

It’s a summer’s morning in 1988 and Tory politician Robin Hesketh has returned home to the idyllic Cotswold house he shares with his wife of 30 years, Diana. But all is not as blissful as it seems. Diana has a stinking hangover, a fox is destroying the garden, and secrets are being dug up all over the place.
