SynopsisYou are invited to a lecture. You know that the subject is probably important and it would be useful to hear what the speaker has to say but you can't keep your eyes open. You will fall asleep and you will dream. But you won't be alone in your dream; everyone else will be there with you. And you will have a chaperone who knows the landscape and will attend to you. So nothing can go wrong...unless...no...just close your eyes. Fiction is a performance using binaural sound and absolute darkness. It is an anxious journey through the sprawling architecture of our dreams and an excercise in empathy. Or is it an opportunity to have a 60 minute nap

SynopsisTells the story of boxer Jay Jackson, the first African-American Heavyweight Champion of the World. It is loosely based on the real-life story of Jack Johnson, whose story is one of great talent and triumph, but also racism and injustice. Despite Johnson being one of the greatest fighters who had ever lived, one newspaper wrote at the time of his first title fight: 'If the black man wins, thousands and thousands of his ignorant brothers will misinterpret his victory as justifying claims to much more than mere physical equality with their white neighbors.'

She has brains, beauty and a successful career as a jewellery designer for the leading lights of New York. She also has a penchant for attractive young men. One night at a society gala, she meets Billy, a handsome waiter, and brings him back to her loft apartment. There’s more to Billy than meets the eye, however, and Camille summons her security guard Ted to get him out. But suddenly, she finds herself held hostage by a man who seems frighteningly familiar with the past she has struggled to forget. Over the course of one explosive night, Camille must use all her wits and cunning to save her life – and to prevent the dark secrets of her past from destroying everything.

Synopsis'Weak-willed and easily led,' Mrs. Shufflewick was a red-nosed, drunken old cockney who liked nothing better than to prop up the Cock and Comfort with a large G&T. And end up starkers on top of a 29 bus. Tottering through the theatres, clubs, radios, televisions and graveyards of 60’s and 70’s Britain. Gay icon, comic’s comic, housewife’s favourite, music hall great and one of radio and TV’s most original and brilliant creations, Mrs. Shufflewick presents an intimate sketch of creator Rex Jameson’s gin-soaked back-stage life and his struggles with his past—abandoned by his mother—as well as his present—engaged in a series of abusive relationships to young working-class thugs—all interspersed with the 'uproariously funny' stand-up acts.

SynopsisIn a world where political divides gape open, and personal wounds are wider still, loyalty means everything. The question becomes: how far are you willing to go? It's 1973 and in the gloom of a Belfast safe house, tied to a chair, sits a hooded man. His captors, ‘Redhand” Ennis and ‘Halftank’ McGee, nervously await the interrogator’s arrival by seeking distraction in tea and bickering. Nearby, a dog lies dead by the side of the road and it’s all Halftank's fault. What follows will not only test their loyalty to breaking point, but also bring their very humanity into question.

SynopsisIn a dank and dingy street in 19th Century Paris, a young woman sits placidly behind the counter of her aunt's textile shop, her face is poised and unmoving, silhouetted in the yellow light of the shop window. Trapped in a loveless marriage to her childish and sickly cousin Camille, Therese's life in the shop is monotonous and dull. One evening the door bell clangs harshly and Camille enters with his colleague and old friend Laurent: a man the likes of whom Therese has never seen before. Slowly enveloped by an all-consuming, burning passion, Therese and Laurent begin an illustrious affair. But unsatisfied with the hurried, feverish visits to Therese's bedroom, the lovers are compelled to pursue a life where they are truly one another's. Harnessing Zola's fascination with the animalistic passions driving human behaviour, this adaptation by Sarah Chapleo examines a turbulent and passionate love affair. Seeing it's realisation in one desperate, catastrophic act which will haunt the lovers forever.
