In a small town in Yorkshire, a beautiful widow is being wooed by two suitors. Fresh from the City and with endless money to dispose of, the older one showers her with gifts - which the younger (handsome, impecunious, an inveterate gambler) wants to put to better use. A love triangle, then; a tale of rivalry and avarice. But money's a slippery commodity and all is not quite as it seems. Throw in a bailiff, a drunkard, a vamp, a second-hand clothes dealer and two upwardly mobile servants, and the complications multiply. Adapted from Alain-Rene Lesage's savage eighteenth-century comedy Turcaret, Blake Morrison's For Love or Money is a story of monstrous wealth and whopping lies.
Cheeky Guide author David Bramwell undertakes an epic journey encountering occultists, freakshows, clairvoyants and a former model of Salvador Dali in a quest to uncover the mystery of a singular heriloom: his great aunt’s moustache! Set in Brighton in the early Nineties, this is a mischievous and award-winning performance that mixes bawdy humour, pathos, lecture-style slide-shows and theatre to tell a unique and fantastical tale. Nominee for the Latest Awards 2008 ‘Star of Brighton Festival’
In the 'Badlands' of Uttar Pradesh, violence and oppression against women are commonplace, but one woman has raised an army to say "no more".

He has just been awarded the prestigious Master Builder award, his beautiful wife still loves him, his beautiful secretary still flirts with him and Prince Charles is coming to open his new building tomorrow. Then a knock at the door propels Solness' past into everyone's future. The only way is down.
1974. The UK faces economic crisis and a hung parliament. In a culture hostile to cooperation, it's a period when votes are won or lost by one, when there are fist fights in the bars and when sick MPs are carried through the lobby to register their vote. Let those on the continent cooperate and hug and kiss each other on the ruddy cheek. Here in Britain, one party governs and we get things done. It's a time when a staggering number of politicians die, and the building creaks under idiosyncrasies and arcane traditions. A minority government? No one with any sense or gumption gives you more than a matter of weeks. You're gonna fall, and fast, and hard. So start finding things to land on. Now. Set in the engine rooms of Westminster, James Graham's This House strips politics down to the practical realities of those behind the scenes: the whips who roll up their sleeves and on occasion bend the rules to shepherd and coerce a diverse chorus of MPs within the Mother of all Parliaments.
The National Theatre and Chichester Festival Theatre production.
Oskar Matzerath, the son of a permissive bourgeois couple is born with a fully developed intellect. Outraged by the passivity of the German people regarding the unstoppable growth of Nazism, the decadence of his family, and the world around him, he decides he will take a stand against the adult world by refusing to grow up. On his third birthday, when given a tin drum he was promised at his birth, he decides to remain three years old for the next 18 years, using his drum as his means of protest.
We Are Bronte is a piece of comic visual theatre inspired by the real and imaginary worlds of Yorkshire's literary siblings, presented in Publick Transport's irreverent style. Physical theatre collides with clowning and improvisation as two performers deconstruct not only gothic themes of love, madness, repression and revenge, but also themselves. Part play, part enquiry into the act of putting on a play, this promises to be no ordinary Bronte adaptation.
We Are Bront? was developed in association with Bristol Ferment (Bristol Old Vic's artists development programme), and is supported by Arts Council England. Additional support was given by Tobacco Factory Theatres and The Bike Shed Theatre.
