Written between 1599 and 1601. The play, set in Denmark, recounts how Prince Hamlet exacts revenge on his uncle Claudius, who has murdered Hamlet's father, the King, and then taken the throne and married Gertrude, Hamlet's mother. The play vividly charts the course of real and feigned madness - from overwhelming grief to seething rage - and explores themes of treachery, revenge, incest, and moral corruption.
Jack was at times a miner, a father, a brawler, sometime poet, conman, lover, thug and comedian. In fact Happy Jack is probably a character we all recognize. The central character of John Godber's play is a typically Yorkshire mixture of tenderness, truculence, humour, pride and pig-ignorance. Happy Jack chronicles the lives of Godber's grandparents. All the incidents in the play are based on fact, but Godber could not separate these stories from his own life as they were being continually retold in his own household. He calls them the myths of his childhood.
Based on the charred remains of a true story. The 5th Marquis of Anglesey was one of the wealthiest men who ever lived. He burned brightly, briefly and transvestitely at the end of the 19th Century, blowing his family's colossal fortune on diamond frocks, lilac-dyed poodles, putting on amazing plays to which nobody came, touring Germany performing the inexplicable "Famous Electric Butterfly Dance", and generally desperately trying to make himself a legend. After he died at 29, his family, in vengeance, burned every proof they could find that he existed, and carried on as though he never was. How to Win Against History is a hilarious, ripped-up musical about expectations, manliness, disappointment and being totally fabulous: Hedwig and the Angry Inch meets Noises Off in a ballgown. A frothy, glossy costume drama about the stories we tell to convince ourselves it's all going well, and the moments we realise it's not.
Three generations of Dublin women. One extraordinary year. A journey of courage, comedy and romance in the award-winning hit of the 2009 Edinburgh Fringe Festival. Happy-go-lucky Amber, fresh out of school, is high on life, double sambucas and boyfriend Paul. That is until the 'indigestion' starts. Her mother Lorraine attacks a customer at work and now she's seeing a 'head doctor'. She's told to do one nice thing for herself each week. Time to sign up for salsa classes. Nanny Kay, meanwhile, is finding life on the wrong side of sixty frustrating. Ailing husband Gem doesn't like the neighbours coming in to 'mind' him, and she's missing more than just his conversation. And if all that wasn't bad enough, Little Gem makes his presence felt and life is never the same again.
With war raging all around her, Mother Courage sells food and clothing to soldiers, switching allegiance when it suits her and striving to keep her business and children alive at all costs. Bloody battlefields are her marketplace, her wagon, her stall. Her remarkable and brutal story is told through humour and song; her story is one of choices and remains a powerful reminder of human resilience and loss in times of war. An epic masterpiece of one woman's survival.
Wilde's Faustian novel of decaying paintings and endless youth. Dorian Gray is a young man of extraordinary charm and beauty.

In a fusion of anarchic theatre and dance, a flamenco dancer, a guitarist and a stripper reclaim the forgotten history of events leading to the Spanish Civil War. With the rise in opposition between anti-austerity and far-right movements all over Europe and the UK, Republica is a timely examination of the last time a government dared to take power from the super-rich to distribute it equally amongst its people.
