Afraid of stigma and rejection, he’s stopped going out, he’s let himself fall out of contact with his family and God only knows when he last had sex. But that’s enough of that. His self-confidence may be at an all-time low but it’s finally time he grabbed life by the balls and started properly living it again. After all, how hard can it be...?

SynopsisFragile as magnolias and as tough as steel, six women share laughter through tears, strength through adversity and tolerance through friendship…..whilst changing hairstyles, swapping recipes and dealing with heartache. Set in a Louisiana beauty salon in the 1980s, this inspiring play shows that extraordinary experiences exist within ordinary lives, and takes us on a rollercoaster ride through day-to-day conversations, emotions and the circle of life. Beautician Truvy’s regulars include the town stalwart M'Lynn and her fragile daughter Shelby, new-in-town shy girl Annelle, curmudgeonly Ouiser and former first lady Clairee. They are thrown together in pursuit of looking their best, and they form supportive friendships and strong bonds that will see them through births, deaths and marriages. When severely tested, the women show their steel-like strength, supporting each other as the darkest hours descend.

SynopsisIn the moment it takes for Daisy Schults to go missing, five lives are irreparably changed. Robert is a young police detective, and his enthusiasm for the case is keener than that of his cynical colleague Gary. Marie Louise, who glimpsed Daisy after she had been separated from her mother, begins a strange friendship with a woman who knows Gary from the cafe where she works. Anne Schults’ life has stopped: she wants to know when ‘missing’ becomes ‘presumed dead’.

SynopsisIt's the future! King Jeffrey, compassion-vacuum and ruler of a evil galactic empire known as 'the Syndicate', commands the universe with an iron fist of idiocy and self-obsession. For years the Syndicate have hunted Tyler and Gary, two petty criminals turned freedom fighters. Having discovered their fortune and rallied an army to their cause, they embark on an audacious mission to capture the Syndicate throne and end Jeffrey’s reign of terror and incompetence. They succeed, but... what are they supposed to do now?
Will Tyler and Gary put their differences aside to make the universe a better place, or will their egos make things infinitely, impossibly worse? Just who are the good guys anyway? Power corrupts, and there is only room on the throne for one...

SynopsisFollows recently paroled convict Percy Talbott, who is looking for somewhere to start over, and rural Gilead, Wisconsin, seems just the place. She takes a job at the Spitfire Grill, a crumbling diner where the townsfolk congregate and gossip, run by a feisty widow named Hannah. Hannah has been trying to sell the diner to escape from the painful memories it holds, but the property has been on the market for a decade with no takers. Soon, Percy hatches a plan to hold a raffle for ownership of the Spitfire Grill—for one hundred dollars and an essay about why they might want the Grill, anyone can enter the contest. As the seasons change and rumours about her past build, the contest entries begin to roll in, and Percy starts to realize that she's not the only person in Gilead with a history.

SynopsisIt’s autumn 1919 and the Conway family has it all. The war is over and the children look set for a bright future. In the first act we see the Conways enjoying a happy family party for daughter Kay’s 21st birthday, complete with their usual round of charades, all dreaming of prosperity, fame and fulfilled ideals. But, in a twist of time and with a glimpse of the Conways on Kay's birthday 19 years later, we witness their disillusionment. They seem torn apart by conflict and resentments and we see that the future is far from the one they imagined as the fate of each sibling is revealed.

SynopsisThe story of Rock Star Conrad Birdie who is the biggest artist to top the charts. Women love him, men want to be him and teenage girls around the country scream with glee at the mere mention of his name. But when the United States Army drafts Birdie, manager Albert Peterson sees his meal ticket preparing to fly the coop, much to the delight of longtime love Rose Alvarez, who can’t wait for Albert to ditch the music business and become an English teacher. Desperate for a publicity stunt big enough to help them survive Birdie’s departure, Albert and Rose hatch a plan: send Conrad to small-town America to plant his goodbye kiss on one lucky fan for the entire world to see.
Their selection of super fan Kim Macafee sends the wholesome enclave of Sweet Apple, Ohio into chaos. Kim’s boyfriend Hugo can’t take the humiliation of his girlfriends televised lip-lock. Rose can’t take another minute of Albert’s distracted ways. And Sweet Apple can’t take its teens riotous rebellion, inspired by the arrival of bad boy Birdie. Will Sweet Apple ever be the same?
