Boring, vanilla, Horlick's swiller William Shight's most interesting trait has always been his snigger inducing name. Up until now that is! Since landing his dream job at one of the country's top advertising agencies, things have taken a nipple twisting turn for the shocking. Christina Black, the company director, has taken a shine to our William and attempts to seduce him with an indecent proposal. Clearly overwhelmed by the attention and having no friends or family to turn to, poor William decides the only thing he can do is seek the advice of the only two men in his life he can trust, the hilariously argumentative Gabriel and Gideon...his sex conscience. Willy tries in vain to resist but in the end relents and signs a 69 page contract, the one Chrisitna intends to use to make a man out of him! The 20 pages of 'don't' and 49 pages of 'do' whatever the hell I want - will lead William on a hilariously painful journey of a lifetime. Guided by his argumentative conscience., can he salvage his integrity and ability to sit down without grimacing? Or will he be completely corrupted by the seductive power of Christina and the sixty nine?? Only William's 'true self' can decide the outcome!
For ages 16+
The Red Chair is a surreal ballad populated with larger than life characters, told in rich and saucy Scots dialect which draws the audience into the extraordinary world of a troubled family (with a dram of whisky to help along the way). A contemporary take on folk and fairytale storytelling traditions, The Red Chair tells the story of a father who eats and eats until he turns into the chair he is sitting upon, the wife doomed to cook his meals and their 'infeasible' daughter. By turns haunting and humorous, The Red Chair takes audiences on a journey through a landscape of twisted reason, extreme compulsion and eye watering complacency, where domestic drudgery happens on an operatic scale and a father's dereliction of duty reaches epic proportions.
Produced in association with Fuel. Running time: 1hr 55mins including interval. Suitable for ages 15+

Or What You Will. Shakespeare comedy of mistaken identity, practical jokes and unrequited love. Rescued from a shipwreck the twins Viola and Sebastian arrive independently in Illyria, both thinking the other is drowned. Viola disguises herself as a boy and finds employment with the Duke who is in love with Olivia. Malvolio is the subject of a cruel joke played on him by Sir Toby Belch (yellow stockings cross-gartered) leading him to believe that Olivia loves him. But Olivia has fallen in love with the disguised Viola, while she is in love with the Duke (following it so far?!).
Running time: 90mins. Age recommendation 12+
