There's a shadow coming, across the sea. Long and terrifying. The vultures are circling, the wolves are howling...how can we weather this storm? The global economy is a mess. The crash has landed, the tide's swept out, and it's taken our hope with it. There's less in our pockets and more to be spent. The rich have got richer, the middle's squeezed tight, and the poor are being dragged ever downwards. With the true value of money and the human cost of greed firmly in their sights, Proto-type Theater tell the story of how a nation raised their voices in protest and railed against the currents. Using original text, performance, film, music and animation, THE AUDIT is about finding strength, overcoming a world designed to keep us docile, and how collective power can move a mountain - even if only a little.
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.
An experiment to separate virtue from wickedness in his own nature results in the respectable Doctor Jekyll releasing the demon within; a malevolent force which will eventually possess him body and soul... Robert Louis Stevenson's classic story has enthralled and fascinated the world for more than a hundred years - perhaps because a Mr. Hyde lurks deep within us all, watching and waiting.
A thrilling adaptation of Robert Louis Stevenson's dark psychological fantasy, The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll And Mr Hyde immerses you in the myth and mystery of 19th century London's fog-bound streets where love, betrayal and murder lurk at every chilling twist and turn. Gripping, stylish and thought-provoking, this is unmissable theatre. Go on. Treat your dark side!
