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

SynopsisBased on the Hollywood film, performed as a live radio play in front of a studio audience: It's A Wonderful Life, by Tony Palermo, is a loving tribute to the golden era of radio but also beautifully captures the eternal comedy of Frank Capra's iconic Hollywood feature film. 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...

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.'

With gifts under the tree, candle-lit carols over homemade mulled wine and of course, what completes every household at this time of year: terror, intrigue and hedonistic decadence. The Alchemic Order present a new adaptation of Oscar Wilde's classic gothic fable and invite you to join the inner circle of Wilde's most infamous characters. The piece takes place in Mr. Gray's private townhouse, decked in glorious Christmas Victoriana in The Royal Borough of Greenwich.

SynopsisSam is a homeless girl who begs by and obsessively reads the letters by a roadside memorial. Andy’s the grieving father who’s desperate to move her. Jamie’s a posh kid who thinks he can help. And Julia. She’s a copper whose instincts tell her that there’s more to this than meets the eye. This is a play about how we live and grieve. About the hold the dead have over the living. Most of all it’s about the story that connects these characters to the girl who lives on the streets of an otherwise anaesthetised London.

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.

Thrusting the turbulent, glamorous and passionate world of football under the dramatic microscope, Hot Topic Productions examines the impact that this global story had on the ordinary people who are integral to the identity of a world-wide brand. From a lifelong groundsman to a contracted streaker, the people who are the heart and soul of Man Utd give a unique insight into how they dealt with a changing of the guard 26 years in the making. Because whatever your opinion of Mr Moyes, what is indisputable is that The Chosen One quickly became The Wrong One.

A time when those that are closest to you are forced to decide whether they are with you or against you and everything that you have worked for is lost... Laws are black and white, but our decisions and choices in life are not. When we live in a world where you are guilty until proven innocent, it is important to be aware of the area that remains grey. Behind every headline there is a human, in The Thin Line, there is George. Accused of the unspeakable, will his life ever be the same again?

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.

SynopsisAn awkwardly funny story of Etta and her family. She suffers from the early stages of Alzheimer’s, yet as her condition worsens, it is her family who descend into absurdity. Literally. The play is a hyper-realistic representation of a Sunday afternoon to which you are invited. This piece is based on interviews and stories from Alzheimer's sufferers and their families.

SynopsisHoled up in their grimy Gateshead flat, Robbie and Carl are trapped in a dingy world of petty criminality and the eerie presence of their dead mother. But since Robbie was accidentally involved in a heroic act he has secretly yearned for change - and a rare date with young mum Gemma could be his big chance. Just as long as his overbearing brother, his junkie neighbour and his murky past don’t engulf them both. He wants to be good. Really he does. But it's a bloody struggle.
