SynopsisTells the story of a father who eats and eats until he turns into the chair he is sitting upon, the wife doomed to cook his meals and their 'inveesible' daughter. The Red Chair takes audiences on a journey through a landscape of twisted reason, extreme compulsion and eye watering complacency, where domestic drudgery happens on an operatic scale and a father’s dereliction of duty reaches epic proportions.

For the small community of Hope Falls, the discovery threatens to shake its moral core and the residents turn to the town veterinarian, Dr. Parker, in the hope that he will know what to do with the strange creature. Taken under the wing of Dr Parker’s wife, the boy is taught in the ways of the world and adjusts to life in this seemingly normal American family. However, ‘normal’ is merely the cycle on Mrs Parker’s washing machine. Secrets, lies and a mysterious case of dead cows leave our Bat Boy at the mercy of his God-fearing community and the shocking truth that reveals the hidden beast in all of us.

SynopsisBurton vividly presents the life of the great Welsh actor in his own words from humble beginnings to Hollywood mega-stardom. Beautiful women (not least Liz Taylor), alcohol, wealth, stage and screen are the threads woven into this sad, happy, exuberant one-man show. Drink was the only real anodyne to his deteriorating health and mental state, his doomed tempestuous relationship with Taylor and his constant guilt over the abandonment of his family.

SynopsisIn Duffy’s magical world, every evening, as children are curling up ready for their bedtime stories, Jub sets off across the forest with a sack full of happy endings. She climbs to the top of the tallest Oak tree, and disperses these in order to bring comforting resolutions and sweet dreams to all that listen... But what would happen if these happy endings were stolen? - imagine the tears at bedtime and the nightmares which follow... It's up to Jub to create her own ending and restore convention to the world of fairy tales in this lyrical story about the power of storytelling.

SynopsisThe year 2050. The political landscape of Europe is rewritten; in Britain, a brutal civil war has destroyed both the royal family and democracy. At last, order has settled and the United Republic is ruled by a Supreme President. Titus, ascending to this role after the death of his father, is now invested with immense power - but he is also just a young man, desperately in love. Berenice, a foreign queen staying in his palace and the object of his passion, equally adores him. But in this world, any relationship with royalty is political suicide. Trapped between the two lovers is Antiochus, best friend and ally to both - and also secretly in love with the queen. In this society, rife with gossip and poised on a knife-edge between structure and turbulence, the new Supreme's actions come under absolute scrutiny which spares nothing. And as political tensions rise, Titus is forced to choose between his love and his country?

But Head of Factual and self-proclaimed 'rebel' Toby demands something 'watchable', so Chloe’s idealistic film becomes a sensationalist look at 'Molotov cocktail throwing anarchists'. But none are prepared for what they uncover about the police, protest and government surveillance. The unexpectedly explosive material forces each to make a stark choice between their consciences and careers in this dark expose of a media industry terrified of dissent.

SynopsisIn November 1963, sinister elements of the U.S. Government assassinated President Kennedy in broad daylight in Dallas. The men who accomplished this brazen hit never relinquished the power they gained from it. Here for the first time - in We, MacBeth - these men explain their motives and aspirations and defend their values against a Rooseveltian Ami du Peuple, who resists their corporate power and pleads for the dignity and responsibility of the Common Man. The stakes could not be higher for the ordinary American citizen, who over the course of fifty years is transformed against his will - under the pressure of coercion, blandishment and manipulation - into a robotic and blinkered patriot.

SynopsisThe main character of this play is Archbishop Makarios who became the first President of the Republic of Cyprus and soon was a target of US- CIA on the allegation that he was pro-Soviet. Therefore they nicknamed him Red Monk or Castro of Mediterranean. Since there is no at present an International Criminal Court of Justice to bring the predators under the rule of law, an imaginary trial is set at Theatro Technis to advocate for the need of such a court as no one, whether individual or state, who has committed a crime against humanity, should be 'untouchable' as is the case of Turkey and its patrons, US, Britain and NATO. Justice has no time limit.

SynopsisA week before Christmas in an East-End pub, hard-bitten landlord Michael Macraw awaits the arrival of his customers. In comes Billy-Lee Russell, who has just found out who his father was and that his mother has started smoking cannabis to 'ease her arthritis'. Also drinking is Giuseppe Rossi, an elderly barber who has taken pride in charging the same price for the past five years and bemoans the emergence of 'hair-care centres' and 'hair surgeons'. They are joined by a series of mysterious punters who perform magic tricks and search for Pekinese dogs. Last of all comes Charlie Anderson: ex-classical-musician-turned-postman who seeks to unearth the regulars deepest secrets with a series of jokes, anecdotes and searing interrogations which disturb what little security they posses. As the evening progresses and the drink flows, it emerges that one of them has a secret he dare not share ...

Witness the tale of what really happens below stairs in an affectionate yet hilarious take on the Holmes legend, using music hall routines, tatty magicians, cod ventriloquists, lady boxers and perhaps even a death defying finale worthy of Moriarty himself! Mulled wine and Christmas trees come as standard.
