Her life is turned upside down by the arrival of Professor Marcus and his four friends, who between them make up the most unlikely group of criminals. Planning the heist of a security van, they decide to use Mrs Wilberforce as cover and involve her unwittingly in the plot. Things do not go well and the Professor’s plan starts to unravel in spectacular and hilarious fashion.

Everyone creates their own coping strategies or rules for living. But what happens when an extended family gathers in the kitchen for a traditional Christmas and they each follow those rules, rigidly? As long-held mechanisms for survival are laid bare, even Mum, who's been preparing this lunch since last January, becomes embroiled. Long-held rivalries and resentments will out. Accusations fly, relationships deconstruct, the rules take over.
The lives of Guy Burgess with Andrew Lownie Guy Burgess is the most important, complex and interesting of The Cambridge Spies - immortalised in plays such as Alan Bennett's 'An Englishman Abroad' and Julian Mitchell's 'Another Country' - yet there has never been a proper biography of him - until now. In Stalin's Englishman, Andrew Lownie presents a completely new picture of Guy Burgess. Drawing on thirty years of research in archives around the world (including recently released files on Burgess from the National Archives), close connections with the Intelligence Community in Britain and the US, hitherto secret files and interviews with over a hundred people who knew Burgess, most of whom have never spoken before.
So, a while ago one of my best friends, Tom, died of heart cancer. His last wish was to be given a Viking Burial and now I want to tell that story. It's the first thing I've done on my own so it's pretty lo-fi but has some good funny bits in between the death stuff. And it's definitely all true. Definitely.

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.
