'She just needs to understand that it's not her fault, that she's not to blame, that she's not a slut.' Three women and two men swim in shame. Everyone's exposed. Everyone wants revenge.

Veteran salesman Willy Loman is used to spending his life 'riding on a smile and a shoeshine', but recently things haven't been so good. He seems to have lost his golden touch; his grown-up sons, Biff and Happy, no longer idolise him as they used to and he is haunted by missed opportunities and a trouble past. His wife Linda is struggling to aid her increasingly disturbed husband, as she tries to hold the family together and keep Willy from descending further into desperation. But as the truth of Willy and his sons' imperfect past begins to unravel, Willy starts to lose faith in the two things he believes in: his family, and, in Miller's words, his need 'to leave a thumbprint somewhere on the world'. Death of a Salesman burst upon the international scene in 1949 and won the Drama Critics' Circle Award, the Tony Award and the Pulitzer Prize, becoming a benchmark for modern theatre.

A new play about depression and the lengths we will go to for those we love. The show involves members of the audience, making each performance unique.
Welcome to the world of war veteran Zach. As the last man standing, he has retreated into a tiny dugout under a barrage of hostile fire. His enemies are cunning, using every trick in the book to mess with his mind. Even the landscape is weird: audibly, chemically and, most of all, physically... it is a cardboard box, in Zach's kitchen, in Port Talbot. His wife whispers, kindly, that it's safe to come out. But is it a trap? For if the real enemy is Zach then who will win if he loses?

So begins the tragedy of King Lear, whose dignity, sanity and finally life are torn from him by a self-seeking younger generation, ambitious for his power.

Their perilous road trip leads them to a ragtag travelling circus where they meet Il Matto the tightrope walker who rekindles Gelsomina's spirit with a new found confidence.

Part true story, part absurd performance lecture, this takes the audience on a journey through philosophy, religion and astrophysics. Heesom plays an unremittingly logical bespectacled academic who explains how we can have life after death without a god, teaches the correct grip for hugs, and confronts the limits of logic in the face of disaster. Beneath the comedy, which is as black as it comes, lies a deeply personal story of love and loss.
In 1985, a fissure formed at England's centre and split the north from the south. A giant tear through the landscape, a real gap, descending into an abyss of bottomless depth. And in the north, cut off, things began to stir. Beneath the moors and the rivers, in the valleys and by the sea. It begins with a phone call and some shocking news. A young man, seeking vengeance for the wrongs of the past, begins a quest that will lead him on an extraordinary, surreal journey from the lights of the City back to where it all began: the dark and bloody heart of the North. There monsters lurk and a reckoning waits. It's a tale of dancing alone in clubs at 3am, the bad things that happen to us, and the stories we make up in response. A dark contemporary myth about England, featuring highly physical storytelling and animation by the former director of New Diorama Asscoiate Company Rhum & Clay (64 Squares, A Strange Wild Song, Shutterland).
Othello, a Moor, falls in love with Desdemona but is broken by jealousy falsely encouraged. Shakespeare's most human play sets delicacy and power, trust and jealousy, love and hate, good and evil in stark and tragic opposition. Powerless in the face of their own self destructive instincts, the characters are caught on a downward spiral towards inevitable tragedy.
Based on the best selling novel and the hit 1959 movie starring Alec Guinness. Graham Greene's satirical masterpiece is about the ridiculousness of cold war paranoia and sees antihero Wormold - in need of some money (his daughter has reached that 'expensive age'!) - attempt to lie his way through his new job as Agent 59200, MI6's man in Havana. With only his experience as a vacuum-cleaner salesman to rely on, he files bogus reports, apparently randomly dreaming up military installations based on vacuum-cleaner designs, only to discover that his stories start to prove alarmingly close to the truth...
Emma was having the time of her life. Now she's in rehab. Her first step is to admit that she has a problem. But the problem isn't with Emma, it's with everything else. She needs to tell the truth. But she's smart enough to know that there's no such thing. When intoxication feels like the only way to survive the modern world, how can she ever sober up?

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.
