SPAIN 1936: When Fascism clutched at the throat of the Spanish people threatening a foul tyranny and the menace of war in Europe, Clem felt at once that his place was in freedom's rank and joined many other volunteers that formed the International Brigades.

He was a man of the people, and the same fight he used against money-sharks and corruption in his sport, he used to defend democracy against Franco's rising fascist army. In Spain Clem developed an unlikely friendship with literary critic, writer and poet Christopher Caudwell; but a common cause had brought them together and they died at their machine gun post covering their battalion's retreat at the Battle of Jarama in February 1937.

Shirley Valentine's world is a world of kitchens, cooking and faded dreams. At the age of 42, Shirley feels that her marriage and life are in a rut.

Fifty women will leave everything behind. They board a boat in North Africa and flee across the Mediterranean. They are escaping forced marriage in their homeland, hoping for protection and assistance, seeking asylum in Greece.
With local participation at its heart, The Suppliant Women revives the tradition of Ancient Greek theatre by recruiting performers from the local community to form a chorus who drive the narrative forward and create an extraordinary theatrical event. With choral odes composed by John Browne and accompanied on the aulos (the rarely heard original Greek double pipe), the local participants represent 50 young women who flee forced marriage in Egypt to seek asylum in Greece. This is a story about the plight of refugees, moral and human rights, civil war, democracy and ultimately the triumph of love - a tale that echoes down the ages to find striking and poignant resonance today.
The novel depicts the plight of the French peasantry demoralised by the French aristocracy in the years leading up to the revolution. Retaining the thrill and tension of the French Revolutionary setting but merging it with a modern, East London aesthetic, the production reimagines Dickens' dangerous and doomed antihero Sydney Carton as a member of the 27 Club (which includes Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Kurt Cobain and Amy Winehouse). The adaptation marries three of the finest artists in their own fields that England has ever known: Dickens the master story-teller, Rattigan the great playwright and Gielgud the mercurial actor. Gielgud intended to play both Sidney Carton and a number of other roles, and this production will realise that ambition - and show off the talents of an incredible team of performers - by having thirty characters played by just eight actors.

Set in the early 1960s, Edward Albee’s explosive play captures the mood of a society on the brink of massive change. Ferociously funny and emotionally raw, this is a compelling rollercoaster ride into the darkest depths of love and marriage. Fifty years after the original play was set, the emotive issues raised are as relevant now as they were then. The 1960s were classed as a sexual, political and musical revolution, when risks were taken and groundbreaking changes evolved. This new production will provide a sexy, sassy, and stirring look into the volatile world of relationships.
