Inspired by the medieval mystery plays Sommer 14 - A Dance of Death is an epic telling from a German and European perspective of the world's descent into war. Employing the character of Death as a guide, the play uses the classic Danse Macabre structure of a series of vignettes to illuminate the people and the events that led up to the outbreak of the First World War.

SynopsisA period satire on the aftermath of the 1707 Acts of Union, the Scottish Enlightenment and the battle between the Scots and English tongues. Edinburgh in the mid 18th century. The eccentric Girzie Carmichael is consigned to an Edinburgh tenement after her country estate has been confiscated for the family's support of Bonnie Prince Charlie. As she fights to stop her estate being sold to a Londoner, she attempts to matchmake her feisty young niece, Kate, with humourless prig Charles Gilchrist whose English education has left him with a hilariously warped accent. Only one thing stands in the way of their union – Charles makes it a condition of their marriage that Kate agrees to learn 'proper English', but Kate flatly refuses to turn her back on her native Scots... As poets, politicians and soldiers alike attend elocution classes to learn English, the lovers’ dispute soon leads to utter chaos...

SynopsisAmong the Channel Islands, tucked away out of sight, lies the tiny island of Terhou, a treasure as yet undiscovered by the tourist trade. In this remote paradise, the happy population sings all day long, arising early to prepare for their annual Independence Day Celebration. They soon discover there is no young lady to be crowned May Queen in their Coronation Ceremony, as all the young women have played the part before. As luck would have it, along with the boat returning from the monthly trip to gather supplies arrives a beautiful stranger – Geraldine. Yet close behind follows the love-struck Jack Amersham and the mischievous Ivy Crush, the press reporter charged with shadowing her… Will the islanders find their May Queen, or will the peace of Terhou be disrupted forever?

SynopsisAn autobiographical one-woman show exploring what it takes to evolve past the veil. The glowing promise of modern London versus the glum realities of a conservative Pakistani Muslim home are punctuated by Bollywood dance moves and at least one blackout drinking incident. Embodying 21 different characters - a domineering father, soulful mum, saucy English friend and Islamic studies teachers whose interests range from slapping to pornography - Nadia illuminates her conflicted sense of identity while questioning repressive cultural norms.
