We live in a time where old orders are collapsing: from the post-colonial nation states of the Middle East, to the EU and the American election. Through it all, tech savvy and extremist groups rip through 20th century political certainties. Amidst this, a generation of young men find themselves burning with resentment; this crisis of masculinity leads them into an online world of fantasy, violence and reality. Manchester-based writer and theatre-maker Javaad Alipoor spent time in this digital realm, exploring the blurry and complex world of extremists, spies, journalists and fantasists. This bold one-man show weaves together their stories, inviting the audience into that web.
Through this lens in a show co-commissioned by HOME, Transform Festival, and Ovalhouse in London, Javaad explores the complexities of being a young male Muslim today.

As the war breaks out over the idyll of his former life, Stephen must lead his men through the carnage of the Battle of the Somme and through the sprawling tunnels that lie deep under ground. Faced with the unprecedented horror of the war Stephen clings to the memory of Isabelle as his world explodes around him.
A sparkling new comedy about the fundamental interconnectedness of all things, involving a mysterious murder, ghosts, pizza, aliens and an impossible sofa.

Don Carlos is passionately in love with Elizabeth, the French Princess to whom he was once betrothed. Carlos' tyrannical father, King Philip II of Spain, decides to marry Elizabeth himself. The young prince's hatred for his cold and distant parent knows no bounds. He enlists his oldest friend, Rodrigo, Marquis of Posa to act as go-between. But Posa decides to convert Carlos and Elizabeth's youthful passion into a full scale rebellion against King Philip's oppressive and bloody regime.
How do you take to the streets and protest if you're not ready to tell the world who you are? In a remote place, where nothing ever happens, a group of teenagers share a safe house. While their shared home welcomes difference, it can be tricky for self-appointed leader Birdie to keep the peace. Fast, witty, and emotional, Dungeness is about love; for our family, our friends and others in the face of all odds. If you're invisible, does your voice still count? What would you stand up and fight for? Will you be heard?
Love, commemoration and protest shine through in this extraordinary piece of new writing.

Someone got a message from the traffic light. Someone's never felt like this before. In this fast moving kaleidoscope more than a hundred characters try to make sense of what they know.

350 BC. Athens. The country is in political turmoil. Recent wars and alliances have left Athenians no options and ready to take the most extreme action. The most radical. A government of women.

A world where power imbalance is eradicated and with it, debt, greed, theft, and... also marriage, love and consent. Oh, and camping.
We can't help living in the future - booking flights for holidays, organizing birthday parties, writing applications, sending out invitations, producing T-shirts for tours. But all of this is merely supposition. When the time comes, these things may happen according to plan, or they may not. Life is entirely unpredictable. But what if we could rewrite history? What if we could imagine that things had turned out differently even if they had not? What if we could anticipate all roads to the future, so that we could be prepared for any possible scenario?
