But He’s English

By Daisy Watford | Directed by Sarah Twomey

One community clumsy in grief, quick to jump on to the bandwagon and even quicker to stereotype.

Karishma: Shazia Nicholls | Camille: Lekhani Chirwa | Dan / John: Luke Gray | Janet: Amy Fleming

Producer: Alex Yaghma


Spear Carriers

By Andrew Thompson | Directed by Eleanor Clare Taylor

A play about acting, actors, boredom and sexual consent. Two actors sit backstage during a long production run and try to solve their careers, their love lives and themselves. It’s about what you do when you have nothing but time on your hands.

Two: Ross Virgo | Three: John Etherington

Producer: Samantha Schofield


Orange Juice

By Charles Lewis Meyrick | Directed by Neil Clarke

Jerry will not give his mother, Blanche, any orange juice. This makes Blanche unhappy. Another young man, Marty, tries to marry Blanche. This makes Jerry unhappy. But Marty is doublecrossing everyone. This makes everyone unhappy.
