SHOWS

REALITY

Written by Stuart Slade
Directed by Grace Gummer
In collaboration with the Royal Court Theatre
Somewhere in a basement, seven reality TV stars are preparing to be voted off by the public. Or to die. It’s one of the two.
A play about the stories we tell ourselves to stay sane, the nature of hope, and the ties that bind us to others. Literally.


SPILT

Written by Charley Miles
Directed by Rania Jumaily
In collaboration with the Royal Court Theatre
Everyone is telling Maria that this should be the happiest time of her life, but she’s got a problem.  It’s not that’s she’s pregnant; it’s that her washing machine keeps exploding and causing massive ruptures in time, space and her physical reality.  SPILT is a surreal play about choices, relationships and what might happen if you could split yourself in three.


BUDDY

Written by Katherine Chandler
Directed by David Mercatali
In collaboration with Sherman Theatre
One ordinary night changes A’s life forever. One extraordinary decision sends her friends lives into chaos. One beloved Dog is at the heart of it all. Buddy.


ALBATROSS

Written by Isley Lynn
Directed by Anna Himali Howard
In collaboration with Paines Plough
 
Tattoos are forever. Almost. And at Noodle Soup Tattoo there are strict rules: No names unless they're dead. Nothing on the face. Nothing you might get sued for later.
 
When Jodie, a rough sleeper, asks for a free tattoo from apprentice Kit, her request is well within the guidelines. But Kit is still unsure, because they know only too well that getting inked isn't the only decision that stays with you for the rest of your life.
 
Albatross is a small but sweeping story about the past refusing to stay in the past.


Word of Mouth Performance

Sat 7 April 6pm
Another performance of one of the shows chosen by public demand.
