Gawain

New Year's Day 2050, Compound Camelot. There's not much to look forward to in a post-apocalyptic wasteland, so when the Green Knight crashes the party with a game of Russian Roulette, Gawain's only too eager to go. There's just one twist – the winner has to take a shot from the loser in exactly one year's time. It suddenly sounds less stupid when the Green Knight gets back up and wipes the blood from his face.

Losters

Set on a London estate, The Losters Play deals with the fallout of a group of youth's being mailed a corpse. What follows involves Polish drug dealers, embalming with anti-freeze and Kesha.

Figaro

<< Le Mariage de Figaro >> was performed in 1784 for the first time. The play was censored for many years, and this already hints at its revolutionary and insolent dimension. This sequel of sorts to "The Barber of Sevilla" mainly revolves around this question: will Figaro and Suzanne manage to get married and circumvent the Count’s lustful « droit du seigneur »? It is a witty, enjoyable and vibrant play: plots intertwine, characters drop their masks, and the feudal order of…

Prep

It’s quite a lot of work to cater for a wedding. Especially when it’s three friends in a kitchen and they’re eating more of the food than they’re sending out. Mostly kitchen-bound and wound up, Marcie, Eva and Rose chortle their way through a wedding of people who they don’t know and couldn’t really care less about. The bride looks like a standing lamp, but Eva’s brought a bag of bourbons with her so the day’s going to be fine.…

"Heads, heads, heads." Have you ever wondered if you're not, in fact, the leading role in your own life but, actually, a walk-on part in someone else's tragedy? It's been a while since Rosencrantz and Guildenstern last saw Hamlet, their old friends from university, and things in Denmark have gotten a little rotten since then. These two minor characters, who watch from the wings as Shakespeare's play unfolds, are thrown centre-stage to make sense of it all in Tom Stoppard's…
