It's the 1940s, wartime London. We meet Lysistrata as she gathers women around her from all walks of life, they have one aim; Peace. How will they achieve this? The women plan to force the men to sign a Peace Treaty by refusing to have sex with them until they do! That's by no means to say they won't make things as hard as possible to ensure they succeed; they will be teasing, they will be tempting but most importantly they will be working together to end the war. Their biggest opponent will be the Mayor of London and his four rather hopeless policemen (who have a secret penchant for Barbershop!); they are intent on ruining her plan. With the help of Beatrice, the leader of the chorus of London women, they will fight against the chorus of London men led by Bertie - a man who doesn't quite seem to be playing with the full deck... We will discover how it takes just one person to bring everyone together and make a difference, and we will see how much fun they can have doing so along the way! All will be bare in love and war.

How far would you go in the name of obsession? The Lindbergh Kidnapping... The O.J. Simpson Case... The Great Train Robbery... so many crimes have been labelled the crime of the 20th Century. Not one however engaged the world as much as the case of Leopold and Loeb - self- confessed ‘Thrill Killers’. Stephen Dolginoff’s multi-award winning musical Thrill Me - The Leopold & Loeb Story - examines the relationship between Nathan Leopold and Richard Loeb - both wealthy, normal and intelligent Chicago students, about to commence training to become lawyers. The show begins at Leopold’s 1958 parole board hearing. Through a series of flashbacks we are taken on a journey of two young men, one who believed he was above the law, obsessed and fuelled by the philosophy of Nietzsche to the point he believed he was a ‘Superman’ beyond good and evil. The other - a loner - became a willing accomplice, empowering Loeb in his misdemeanours. His reward - Richard’s time, attention and conditional love! Together, they both believed they had perpetrated the perfect crime, or was one more certain than the other?
