Nine men gather in a New York apartment for a birthday celebration. Harold, a self-avowed 'pock-marked, Jew fairy', receives a surprise gift: a beautiful male hustler, and party host Michael gets an unwanted surprise of his own in the shape of a figure from his past. As the booze is drunk and the dope smoked, the mood swings from hilarity to heart-break.
A butterfly flaps its wings in Leeds and... 'How could I have known that was going to happen? How could I have stopped it? Just stayed in my room all day, sat still? We can't ever know. We can't rehearse life' - A girl stands in a train station. - An argument. A slap. - Unimaginable consequences.
Butterfly is the latest original and thought-provoking production by our very own, very talented youth theatre: The Carriageworks Young Theatre Makers.
Christopher, fifteen years old, stands beside Mrs Shears' dead dog. It has been speared with a garden fork, it is seven minutes after midnight and Christopher is under suspicion. He records each fact in the book he is writing to solve the mystery of who murdered Wellington. I made a decision. I did this by thinking of all the things I could do and deciding whether they were the right decision or not. He has an extraordinary brain, exceptional at maths while ill-equipped to interpret everyday life. He has never ventured alone beyond the end of his road, he detests being touched and he distrusts strangers. But his detective work, forbidden by his father, takes him on a frightening journey that upturns his world. My name is Christopher John Francis Boone. I know all the countries of the world and the capital cities. And every prime number up to 7507.
Three couples, who married in the same chapel and on the same day, are blissfully celebrating their Silver Wedding Anniversary when a series of revelations and events turn the men folk into jibbering wrecks. They get more than they bargained for when the worms turn! A young Chapel organist, a nosy meddlesome servant, a mad vicar, a reporter, a drunken photographer and a mysterious woman turn what should have been an idyllic day into an hilarious comedy of misunderstandings and mayhem.
Fog and creepily haunted houses, supernatural happenings, sea mists and dark stormy nights, lonely funerals and creaking attic doors, all combine in this gripping adaptation of Susan Hill's tense and thrilling story to create a play that taps our primal fears. A grieving lawyer believes a curse has been cast over him and his family by the spectre of the woman in black. In an attempt to exorcise the spirit he engages a sceptical young actor to help him tell his story. His plan begins innocently enough, but as the border between reality and fantasy blur, the horror starts and the flesh begins to creep..
