Ten years after the end of their affair in New York, two lovers meet in a hotel room far from their homes.

Lost Monsters
by Laurence Wilson

April 21-25, 2019

Director: Siobhán Campbell

The world would be a better place if we were all bees. An isolated house in a forgotten valley has only the litter and noise from the surrounding motorway above as company. A flash of lightning and a freak car crash leave three runaways stranded and seeking refuge.

Love and Information
by Caryl Churchill

May 5-9, 2020

Director: Dave Hollander

Someone sneezes. Someone can’t get a signal. Someone won’t answer the door. Someone put an elephant on the stairs. Someone’s not ready to talk. Someone hates irrational numbers. Someone told the police. 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.

Iron
by Rona Munro

May 19-23, 2020

Director: John Irvine

Plagued by haunting voices and a paranoid fear of conspiracy, Franz Woyzeck is a man trying to make sense of things and failing.

But his distrust and anger spirals until, in an attempt to make the real and imagined voices stop for good, he takes a knife ...

Director: Barry Hooper

On a summer’s day in 1900, during a trip to a volcanic beauty spot, three schoolgirls and their teacher inexplicably vanish. A century later 5 girls try to solve the mystery, but euphoria and terror reverberate as the potential for history to repeat itself becomes nightmarishly real.

1 Act Double Bill:

June 30 - July 4, 2020

Spoonface Steinberg
by Lee Hall

Director: Panit Chantranuluck

Spoonface is contemplating the big questions life throws at her: what is the meaning of life? What is the meaning of death? And does nothing even exist? Spoonface is 7 years old. Spoonface is autistic. And Spoonface's world is funny, moving and completely exhilarating.

The Bald Prima Donna
by Eugene Ionesco

Director: Anna Rubincam

It's an evening like any other in the rather bland middle-class household of Mr & Mrs Smith, that is until a slew of unusual guests descend upon them wreaking havoc in their wake in this hilariously maniacal assault on the banality of English suburbia.

Jeffrey Bernard is Unwell
by Keith Waterhouse

July 14 - 18, 2020

Director: Charlotte Benstead

Jeffrey Bernard, legendarily hard-drinking '80s hack has been accidentally locked in a West End boozer and passes the evening regaling the audience with a series of increasingly rambling real-life anecdotes about illicit cat races, his tumultuous love life, and his struggles with alcoholism. Moving, poignant and very funny.
