What makes us tick…

Being creative in as many ways as we can, that’s what.
We WRITE PLAYS, we PERFORM, we create COSTUMES and PROPS for HIRE.
We can also provide DRAMA COACHING, SOUND ENGINEERING and WEBSITE DESIGN with HOSTING.

Our websites include THE SCRIPT STORE (a handy place to source plays for schools and youth theatre – or for writers of plays to share/sell their work).
BUGSY HIRE is just that – costumes and splurge guns for the musical messiness that is Bugsy Malone.
OFFBEAT THEATRE is the site that has our costume hire details for everything that isn’t Bugsy – Alice in Wonderland, Steampunk costumes, James and the Giant Peach and other wonderful and strange creations. If we’re performing, we shout about it here.
OFFBEAT PLAYS is a showcase for the plays of Barbara Hockley and Rob Hockley – but all details are best viewed on the writers pages of the Script Store – visit for quirky off-the-wall plays by Barbara Hockley or hilarious one act plays by Rob Hockley.
