SynopsisA contemporary gay Cinderella story. When the shy, eccentric and accident prone electrologist Christopher helps the elderly Mr Rosenberg recover from a fainting fit he’s not expecting to be sent off to meet his Prince Charming at a glamorous charity ball. And when the electrics short so he accidentally kills Rosenberg he certainly isn’t expecting to inherit his millions, nor to end up on reality TV facing the fury of his embittered and furious daughter, Lenore. But it’s the icing on the cake when the old man turns up to lend a hand in the guise of a very ghostly fairy Godfather.

SynopsisJulius Caesar follows the tale of a group of conspirators who devise a plan to remove Caesar from power. This new interpretation will retain the original text but place the story against a backdrop of modern day politics. Focusing on the themes of spin, betrayal, backstabbing and power – rarely has a 16th Century play been more relevant in modern society. Drawing inspiration from popular television shows such as House of Cards, Homeland and The Thick of It, the work will allow the audience to witness behind the scenes politics and draw strong parallels between today’s political situation and the story of Julius Caesar.

SynopsisSummer 1958 – an English country village - A magical mix of folk and morris, rock'n'roll and jive, enchantment and mayhem. Lord and Lady of the Manor, Theseus and Hippolyta, are celebrating with the local Village Am Dram Society, headed by one Mr Bottom, who are preparing their latest theatrical piece. Having had enough of cucumber sandwiches and tea dances, young sweethearts, Hermia and Lysander, steal away to the forest, closely pursued by their admirers, Helena and Demetrius. Their adventure is closely watched by the forest's mystical inhabitants; Oberon, Titania, and their band of fairies, who use their powers for good and ill, resulting in an enchanted night of magic, misconception, and mischief.

So by the end of the first act, poor Katie finds herself held hostage on her honeymoon with all three of her husbands – past and present!

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...

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.

The next morning, British playwright David Edgar sat down to his computer and began to write the first in what would eventually become 'The Eastern Europe Trilogy'. 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.
