  • Old Times by Harold Pinter

    30 May to 31 May 2015

    Kate, Anna and Deeley are three people approaching middle age, whose lives have declined in excitement and adventure. They drink, smoke and reminisce about the old times they spent together. But beneath the surface of their taut, witty conversation lurks suggestions of darkness, until the present is overwhelmed with imitations of some frightening past. ‘Old Times’ explores how memories differ from truth and the all-encompassing nature of sexual rivalry.

  • Bottleneck by Luke Barnes

    6 Jun to 7 Jun 2015

    Liverpool, 1989. Greg is thirteen and has just started school and for some reason keeps being put in detention. Greg swears it was Tom’s fault, but he doesn’t want to upset Tom’s Dad because he’s big, he’s blue and that’s bad enough. Liverpool FC are everything to him. Greg dreams of playing for the reds, to go out onto Anfield and score one with Barnesy at the Kop end. But Greg has a story to tell you. Stories of the city he loves, the friends he’s going to have for life, the girls that keep picking on him and trip to Sheffield Wednesday that will live with him forever.

  • Rhinoceros by Eugène Ionesco

    10 Jun to 13 Jun 2015

    Written by one of the founding fathers of the ‘the Theatre of the Absurd’, ‘Rhinoceros’ follows Berenger, a disenfranchised and disillusioned anti-hero, as he refuses to change whilst the rest of the characters turn into rhinoceroses. A dark, dystopian, satirical phase, ‘Rhinoceros’ is fundamentally a play about conformity and the cult of opinion. However, the play touches on many ideas, such as the meaningless of language, the ridiculousness of everyday convention and alienation. This chilling representation of humanity attacks the arrogance of our everyday moral convictions.
