For four and a half years an English market town stands still as the bodies of three hundred and fifty-five dead military personnel are repatriated through the town. The average age is twenty-two. Imagine all that death and sadness travelling down your High Street. A middle aged man embarks on a journey to meet civilians, war veterans, bereaved parents and serving soldiers who have seen their friends die in front of them. They help him make sense of his life and bring about a reconciliation with his military childhood. Can they shed light on the purpose of these young deaths and this generation's war in the face of a British withdrawal from Afghanistan in 2014? Do We Do The Right Thing? is based upon verbatim and autobiographical material and intends to give a voice to the contemporary soldier as well as asking us to consider our own relationship to the military and acts of remembrance in time of war and peace.
Welcome to Winton, a darkly-tinged town where all is not as it seems. A quiet place where routine rules and the clock reigns. Here snow falls but its meaning is lost. Things slip away but no-one seems to notice... In the depths of this town with a tick, Edgar feels empty. He has forgotten how to live. He has forgotten what he has lost. But one day, when a forbidden door is tentatively pushed, a memory is stirred, and everything changes.
This Winter, come into the cosy basement of The Bike Shed Theatre and Join The Wardrobe Ensemble on a physical, musical, magical journey of discovery, empty photo frames and stolen memories. An epic adventure into the known but unknown, the familiar unfamiliar; The Land of Lost.
A comic drama about adolescent schoolboys. A group of bright, funny sixth-form boys in pursuit of sex, sport and a place at university. A maverick English teacher at odds with the young and shrewd supply teacher. A headmaster obsessed with results, and a history teacher who thinks he's a fool.
The swinging 60s and Reg and Henri are living the dream. Resident musicians in the smoky enclave of a Soho jazz club, they enjoy a glamour and verve that others envy. Life is a party but this party comes at a price... Gay men at a time when homosexuality is a criminal offence; interracial lovers in a racist society; jazz warriors in the time of the flop-haired Beatles: they are existing on the fringes of a society that shouts free love but can't always deliver. As brutality spills into their world and gangsterism seeps into the Club, Reg and Henri's old demons rise up...
