A good old British farce. In Afghanistan. Hilarious and controversial. The politicians and celebrities of the State of Glitterland collude to keep their people in a sedated stupor. The ruthless political advisor, Nemo, uses his starlet sister to manipulate those in power in a dangerous game of deception. As his enemies threaten to expose him, Nemo will stop at nothing in his quest for control.

Welcome to Hoke's Bluff. The sun always shines, the grass is always watered and green, the roads are wide and the cars seat three in the front. It never rains and all the kids have straight teeth. Their parents are firm but loving, and when they get things wrong they admit it, and say they're sorry. Yep, Hoke's Bluff is pretty ordinary. Could be anywhere, really. Just another town. With a whistful yearning for a world that never really existed, Hoke's Bluff uses high school storylines, inspiring locker room speeches and sentimentality to tell an underdog story that's been told a million times before, shifting and re-arranging the trite conventions and narratives of American teen movies to talk about what it means to be a winner on the inside.
Running time: 80mins. Ages 12+ (swearing, sexual references and mild nudity)
"This is my world, I am the king, I make the rules and everyone else can go to hell. This is off-shore." Islands is an illuminating, absurd and powerful new show about tax havens, little empires, enormous greed and the few who have it all. Hilarious and unnerving, this ink black comedy with music plunges you into a monstrous, secretive world where it really seems that no-one has to pay.... for anything. Head off-shore and frolic with those who have it all worked out, as they feed their addiction to wealth, power and material stuff. Oxfam estimate that there is $18.5 trillion siphoned out of the world economy into tax havens by wealthy individuals alone. Christian Aid has calculated that 1,000 children die every day as a result of tax evasion. This is not just a political or social challenge; this is a matter of human rights.
Four actors are performing a Christmas panto. For the audience it's a fun, yuletide treat - for the actors on stage, it's a matter of life and death! We soon discover that the cast are all embroiled in a plot to kill each other. A prop gun is swapped for the real thing and a poisoned apple is on the menu. Who's bean-stalking who? Will the Giant come out on top? Or will it be curtains for Daisy the cow? The cry of "He's behind you!" has never sounded so chilling!
The Pearl tells the story of Kino, a Mexican pearl diver whose life is transformed when he finds a pearl as 'perfect as the moon'. Kino believes that the pearl will make his dreams reality, he will marry Juana in the church and their son Coyotito will be educated. Obsessed by this dream, Kino is blind to the greed and fear the pearl arouses in his neighbours, and ultimately himself. Soon the dream of wealth and riches turns to dust when the pearl attracts only enemies, misfortune and grief.
