Hours later, Turkish Armed Forces drop bombs on the group. 34 civilians are killed. The Roboski massacre is one of the most controversial episodes in the 'war on terror'. Piecing together the fragments of the tragedy, Shrapnel: 34 Fragments of a Massacre, dares to ask what a massacre is made of.

SynopsisDrawn from real life stories of courage and conscience from ordinary people, Stand examines what makes people elect to take a stand for what they believe in. Six actors portray six real life activists – or at least, six people who have chosen to act. The ideas to which they are devoted could hardly be bigger or more important. They’re ideas about how we make for ourselves a better, more sustainable future; how we live more equitably alongside those with whom we share our planet; how we protect from harm the places that tell us who we are; how we build our families and communities and raise our kids to have an instinct for bravery and kindness. And, most importantly perhaps, how we keep moving forward in the face of greed and corruption, and our own doubt and fear.

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.'

SynopsisExperience close-up magic like never before in a show featuring the finest sleight of hand and indulge in the style and opulance of the Victorian masters of magic. At the turn of the 1900's London was full of magicians like the Great Harry Houdini, and the upper classes enjoyed dazzling sleight of hand in the comfort of their own homes. Witness the strange and the bizarre as objects disappear and the spirits write messages from 'the other side'. This will be a night to remember - an evening with a difference ...

SynopsisIn the play the less notable English consular official Carr, who is likewise a real person and was similarly in Zürich, recalls his perceptions and his experiences with these influential figures. As Carr reminisces, his memories are couched in a Zurich production of Oscar Wilde's play The Importance of Being Earnest, in which Carr once played the role of Algernon. Carr's memories become prone to distraction, and instead of predictable historical biography these characters are interpreted through the maze of his mind.
