Best known for his inventive, witty and often macabre short stories satirising Edwardian society, Hector Hugh Munro - Saki - also wrote four largely forgotten plays, of which the only full-length example is The Watched Pot, a collaboration with his friend Charles Maude, which was only completed after Saki’s death in the trenches of the First World War (his last words are said to have been “Put that bloody cigarette out!”, just before a German sniper’s bullet found him).


The Watched Pot is a classic three-act comedy, set over the course of a weekend at an Edwardian country house, Briony Manor. Hortensia Bavvel, the mistress of Briony, rules over her domain with a rod of iron; however were her son, Trevor, to marry, he would take control of the estate - making many people’s lives much happier and less interfered-with. The focus that weekend, then, is to find Trevor a wife, but is there a suitable candidate among the house guests, and is Trevor even interested in matrimony? All and more will be revealed…

William Shakespeare

Directed by Lauren Davis & Phoebe Fung


Weds 26th - Sat 29th April

Rome must rise! 

In a near-future dystopian society where corporate interests hold political power above all, conspiracy runs rampant as those closest to Caesar plot against him. As factions rise and propaganda floods the streets, can Rome pull back from the brink of chaos or will all out war set in motion the end of order? 

Bath Drama's Julius Caesar tells the age-old Shakespearean saga of power struggles between elites at untold cost. Played in the original language with innovative modern staging, this production examines the cycles of political control and how good intentions can spiral into unforeseen consequences.
