At a London mainline rail terminus an elaborate trap is deployed in an attempt to capture a dangerous and elusive terrorist, codenamed Cerastes. Major Quentin Sexton and his hand-picked SSDO (Strategic Simulated Distractional Operations) Unit are poised, ready to pounce. To assist them, civilian witness Barry Hawkins and Ez Swain, his ?minder', are on hand to confirm final identification. What can possibly go wrong? For the luckless Major quite a lot really, when his key witness turns out to be a garrulous, suspiciously unreliable traffic warden and the minder, a troubled young female soldier with severe attitude problems. On top of which, is Quentin's so-called elite unit really all it's cracked up to be?
When Malcolm and Kate threw a house-warming they had no idea how hot it would get. But then with four couples, three bedrooms, two ex-lovers and one set of parents-in-law (not to mention self assembly furniture and pilchards on toast) it was never going to go that smoothly. First performed June 1975.
The repressed desire of beautiful Louisa, trapped in a loveless marriage to Bounderby, a powerful mill-owner, is awakened by the handsome seducer James Harthouse. Thomas Gradgrind, her father, is forced to see love and imagination triumph over hid blind faith in "facts, facts, facts!".
Imagine a world where imagination is forbidden. Coketown is such a place. Thomas Gradgrind will not permit fanciful thoughts in his school or his home. But what effect will this policy have on his own children, Tom and Louisa? How can he protect them from corrupting influences - especially when the circus comes to town? Dark satanic mills, interrupted by the colour and vibrancy of Sleary's Circus, set the stage for a sweeping tale of supressed love, seduction and social mores, peopled with the sharply observed exaggerated characters that Dickens is celebrated for. Conrad Nelson directs Deborah McAndrew's witty adaptation of Charles Dickens' great Northern novel to bring you a joyful juggling and tumbling through this touching and often hilarious tale of repression and longing.
Jane Austen sits writing, her quill scurrying across the vellum. She is dreaming up Darcy, a proud, lip curling, handsome creation in very tight pants. But then a door squeaks, a visitor approaches and Jane hastily hides her work. Now left to his own devices, Darcy embroiders his own storyline whilst his creator embroiders her doilies. When Jane returns she finds the plot has moved on and Darcy is dancing to a rather different tune.
LipService explore the world of women writers, scribbling in secret or under pseudonyms, squeezing in their writing amongst the hustle and bustle of taking tea, choosing chintz and the odd attack of the vapours

Testosterone is the true story of Kit Redstone's first entrance into a male gym changing room at the age of 33. What first appears as a routine ritual of four men changing after a workout transforms into an epic coming of age quest for masculine identity in an environment that affords little space to hide. As well as a compelling, fast-paced, often funny story, Testosterone provides a rare, truthful and theatrically ambitious insight into what it means to be a "man" from someone who has inherited the identity, rather than been born with it.
The piece will bring together two distinctive devising and performing styles, fusing Kit Redstone's direct address delivery style with Rhum and Clay's ability to put characters' complex inner workings on the stage with the innovative use of movement and visuals.
