Part of the Conspiracy Season
The play takes place in the fictional northern town of Grimley. Rumour and gossip are fierce, as its residents are facing the possibility of pit closure. Not only are they confronting the prospect of unemployment, but also the added crisis of their beloved Collier Brass Band, as old as the mine itself, being in danger of totally dissolving. Band members struggle on with their weekly rehearsals, despite the worry, and endeavor to reach their ultimate goal of the National Brass Band Championships.

In the spring of 1893 Jonathan Harker, a young English solicitor, visits Castle Dracula in Transylvania for what he believes to be a routine deal with the nobleman Count Dracula. Harker soon realises that he is not a visitor at all, instead a prisoner to the deadly Dracula, who sets off to find Mina, Harker’s fiancée, and her sister Lucy. The more Harker investigates his confinement, the more he fears his deadly captor. Can someone stop Dracula before he unleashes his supernatural powers on his first victim? In this tragic tale of power and redemptive love, the lines between the sane and the insane become dangerously vague.
The fabulous, if short lived, TV series on stage.
Iphigenia, daughter of Agamemnon, is sacrificed to the goddess Artemis, to persuade her to grant the Greek ships a favouring wind on their way to conquer Troy. Agamemnon has become an ambitious politician, wavering in his motives, and a moral, if not a physical coward. Menelaus is also doubtful character. Achilles, to be sure, has something of a hero about him, but it is heroism of a very human youth, not of an adult Homeric warrior. As to Iphigenia, her character has been transformed from an unwilling victim into a true saint. She does not appear in Homer but tradition depict Iphigenia as a gagged, unwilling victim, appealing with her eyes, even at the moment of her death, for pity. In this play, she gives her life (much as Joan of Arc did) in accordance with what she regards as the 'divine will' and the needs of her country.
In the 70s and early 80s, the well-known Manchester band, Joy Division, took their name from events had nothing to do with joy. The name comes from forced labour camps in Nazi Germany. In these camps, thousands of young women were used as sex slaves for German officers before they went to fight on the Russian front. These young girls, known as 'Feld Hure' (Field Whores), underwent daily 'enjoyment duty' where three bad reports were met with brutal levels of punishment. The question is, in such dire circumstances, do humans take solace in the companionship of others suffering the same fate? Or does an individual's supposed submission give them greater dominance and a longer shelf life? Warning: Contains Femal Nudity

A month later the troupe hits Goole, and tempers are fraying, hearts are breaking and the riotous fun on-stage is paralleled only by volcanic excitements off-stage.

In 1984 the miners were defeated, their families were torn apart and the media circus went home. John Godber's epic new play traces what happened to miner Harry and his wife Dot in the thirty years after the strike. Suddenly they were thrown together, with new battles to fight, and new jobs to hold down; from window cleaning in Wakefield to running a boarding house in Bridlington; but life would never be the same again! Fuelled with eye watering honesty and true Yorkshire grit, this is an hilarious account of those whose jobs had been taken, and communities destroyed, and how they fought back after being shafted! The Pits may have gone, but the shifts are still seismic!
