In 2014, Panti landed herself in a legal shitstorm, dubbed Pantigate. Her speech about homophobia went viral, was broadcast worldwide, remixed by Pet Shop Boys, caused a parliamentary meltdown and fed into Ireland's marriage equality referendum success. Hilarious and poignant, Panti traces her journey from small-town boy kicking against traditions to towering plastique woman in false lashes making history.

Chris the arrogant head of the drama society has directed the piece and cast himself as the dynamic Inspector. Desperate wannabe actress Sandra and the genuinely doting Max struggle opposite each other as the romantic interest while hapless Dennis still can't pronounce 'facade'. An hour of hilarious disaster ensues; actors get knocked out, the play gets stuck on a loop and the set falls down before the final denouement. The production ends with an uproarious, totally improvised Q&A session with the cast, where the audience can put their own questions to the unfortunate troupe.

Liz Aggiss has been in a dark room decoding a disorientating display of contradictions and interpretations on girls, ladies, women, mothers, pensioners and senior citizens. Unpicking mythologies, platitudes, refrains and old wives tales, this dark and ribald physical commentary considers cultural mores, forays and sexual taboos. SLAP AND TICKLE navigates Liz Aggiss and the audience into a feminist soup; with push and pull, punishment and reward, slap and tickle... all the way home.
SLAP AND TICKLE in three acts, is littered with aural and visual collage; from archive to cover versions, radio nostalgia to contemporary reference with a form that lurches relentlessly from spoken word to expressionism, music hall, costume change and prop manipulation.
Spooky Action at a Distance is about an anti-immigration protest in Dover last winter. It's about throwing a brick to make a point, how it feels to look at pictures of bad things on the internet, and how snotty your National Front bandanna gets when it's tied across your face in the cold.

White Sky is a play about loss, violence and looking for a world beyond a bypass.
In a bombed out building during the First World War in the French town of Ypres, two officers discover a printing press and create a newspaper for the troops. Far from being a sombre journal about life in the trenches they produced a resolutely cheerful, subversive and very funny newspaper designed to lift the spirits of the men on the frontline. Defying enemy bombardment, gas attacks and the disapproval of many of the top Brass, The Wipers Times rolled off the press for two years and was an extraordinary tribute to the resilience of the human spirit in the face of overwhelming adversity.
Fog and creepily haunted houses, supernatural happenings, sea mists and dark stormy nights, lonely funerals and creaking attic doors, all combine in this gripping adaptation of Susan Hill's tense and thrilling story to create a play that taps our primal fears. A grieving lawyer believes a curse has been cast over him and his family by the spectre of the woman in black. In an attempt to exorcise the spirit he engages a sceptical young actor to help him tell his story. His plan begins innocently enough, but as the border between reality and fantasy blur, the horror starts and the flesh begins to creep..
