  • Lust, Liquor, Burn

    4 May to 5 May 2015

    1970’s LA, a bombardment of lights, mystic rhythms transporting you into a world of indulgence, drugs, sex and outrage. Everything about it oozes with style. You want to hate it but it seduces you. Four characters, all entwined in a whodunit scenario. Equally glorious and despicable, who is the most likely culprit? Delve your way through the chaos and accusations, as it becomes increasingly apparent that behind the spectacle and glamour lie dangerous and damaged existences.

  • Women of Troy by Euripides trans. by Don Taylor

    6 May to 9 May 2015

    The Trojan War is over. All its men are dead, all its women's fate lie in the hands of their conquerors. In a prison, as the women await their fate, they struggle to keep alive their dignity, their humanity and their memories of a civilisation soon to be lost forever. Two thoughts keep them alive: to see their prince, Astyanax, survive to found a new Troy. And to see the punishment by death of the woman they blame for all their suffering, Helen.

  • Yours and Mine by Miriam Dyberg

    11 May to 12 May 2015

    Peter gave up his dream to marry Karen, but when he meets Anna his existence is shattered. Unable to trust his wife or his sanity, Peter purposefully colludes with the realities of those around him to break down the lies and the woman who consumed the last ten years of his life. 'Yours and Mine' challenges gender roles in relationships and our typically static ideas about who's right and wrong when a relationship disintegrates.

  • 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.
