SynopsisSecret teenage love in the heart of America’s Bible Belt. The derelict bus signposting the road to the church is the ideal secret rendezvous for teenagers Jordan and Ian as they explore their friendship and love. But when the gas station owner, who also happens to be Jordan’s divorced father, decides he’s had enough of giving it house room for free they suddenly find themselves caught up in a whirlwind of small-town politics, deep seated religious prejudice and family resentment. A clash between the large church and a tiny local business can only be explosive and lead to unexpected consequences for all.

It's the story of a dreamer, the idealistic George Bailey from a small American town, Bedford Falls, just after the Great Depression of the 1930s. Standing alone on a bridge on Christmas Eve, George has decided with all his dreams of escape and adventure quashed by his love of family and civic duty, that everyone would be better off without him... or would they? It falls to a guardian angel, Clarence, to try and save him, showing him what the world could have been like without him and how after all it has been a wonderful life...

Originally premiered at the National Theatre on the one-year anniversary of this remarkable event, The Shape of the Table looks inside the government of an unnamed Soviet satellite country as the thousands appeared, suddenly, on their streets and in their squares.

SynopsisWidely regarded as one of the best British plays to come out of the 1990s, Pentecost tells the story of Gabriela Pecs, a feisty and passionate art curator in a small, unnamed Eastern European country. Gabriela believes she has discovered something wonderful in an ancient, abandoned church near one of her country's borders. Realizing that a celebrated art historian from England is arriving in her country to give a talk, Gabriela, er, 'borrows' him from his hotel and takes him on a wild ride through her nation's roadway system that brings him face to face with what very well may be a work of art that will change the course of history.
