Winnie's no ordinary nun. A swearing, smoking, Guinness fan, who loves a sing-song with Stephen. She lives life to the fullest. But she's got a secret. Stephen's lost his job - and lost his way. Finding solace in music, he knows he must start again... but how? Ballsy and outspoken, teenager Kayleigh is in charge of her life. No one tells her what to do. However, a mind-blowing discovery leads her to Winnie and Stephen and together they start a journey that will transform their lives forever. Surprising and poignant, Folk is a hilarious and not-so-holy story of hope, coming together and finding your feet when your world is turned upside down.
A room in the late 1940s and four cold men drawn to a telepathic girl who walks with a dangerous Romeo. Juggling realism, surrealism and even pantomime, Nowhere Near London explores the earliest days of the South Oxhey council estate, the last days of the German-Jewish writer Walter Benjamin, and everyday that has ever been lived in Eden. Nowhere Near London is adapted from John Schad's novel The Late Walter Benjamin (Bloomsbury)..

Holed up at The Cricketers' Arms, the permanently ravenous Francis spots the chance of an extra meal ticket and takes a second job with one Stanley Stubbers, who is hiding from the police and waiting to be re-united with Rachel. To prevent discovery, Francis must keep his two guvnors apart. Simple.
October 1914, Ypres, Belgium. The British forces, bolstered by huge numbers of volunteer soldiers from across the Empire have suffered huge casualties in one of the first bloody battles of The Great War. As a sole survivor on the battlefield holds off the advancing enemy troops, a group of South Asian and British soldiers seek refuge in an abandoned barn. Over the course of a single night, this group of men must confront their fears and find a way to come together if they are to survive. Wipers is inspired by the real life story of Khudadad Khan, the first South Asian soldier to be awarded a Victoria Cross for his extraordinary bravery at the First Battle of Ypres - a site that went on to be known as Wipers by the soldiers who fought there.
This explosive new play by acclaimed playwright Ishy Din and directed by Suba Das, honours the contribution of the million South Asian soldiers who fought alongside their British brothers during the First World War.
