by Alan Ayckbourn
6th - 15th October 2022

A unique play, Ayckbourn's only farce, quite unlike the rest of his work and deliberately modelled on the inter-war Aldwych farces by Ben Travers, who wrote classics such as Thark and Rookery Nook, but, this being Ayckbourn, Taking Steps is like is like no other six-character, three-storey, haunted-house comedy you have ever seen!

Tickets available here.

Tickets available here.


8th - 10th AND 15th - 17th December 2022
by Michelle Magorian & David Wood

Set during the dangerous build up to the Second World War, Goodnight Mister Tom follows young William Beech, who is evacuated to the idyllic English countryside and forges a remarkable and heartwarming friendship with the elderly recluse Tom Oakley. All is perfect until William is suddenly summoned by his mother back to London.

Goodnight Mister Tom is a world-wide literary favourite that continues to inspire audiences and bring generations together.

    About Us

    Medway Little Theatre is situated in historic Rochester, at the heart of the Medway Authority in North Kent. It was converted from a disused warehouse into a 100 (now 96) seat theatre in 1958. In 1995 we acquired the freehold to our premises with the aid of a generous grant from the old Rochester City Council. We are now in our 62nd season, a fully-equipped public theatre, with well over 400 productions behind us.

    There is always a welcoming atmosphere in our friendly auditorium with its integral bar. Anyone interested in joining the company in any capacity is invited to come along to meet us at our social nights, every Tuesday from 8pm onwards, except during productions.

    We have two active Youth Sections:

  • The Children's Workshop (ages 7-12) which meets on Saturdays from 2pm - 4pm
  • The Youth Company (ages 12-18) which meets on Saturdays from 10.30am -12.30pm
  • We organise a one-act play festival annually for visiting youth and adult groups throughout North Kent and beyond, as well as making regular contributions to the life of the Medway Towns through outreach activities and participation in Medway's Arts and Dickens Festivals.

    Over the years, we have successfully presented the complete range of theatre, from Sophocles to The Graduate, as a scroll through our list of productions since 1959 will show and we continue to use our small stage in ambitious and innovative ways.
