ProducerQueen's Theatre, Hornchurch by special arrangement with Samuel French Ltd
SynopsisPaying homage to film and neo-noir with echoes of Sin City and Casablanca, Gunmetal Blues is a hard-boiled detective yarn disguised as a lounge act… or maybe it’s the other way around... The show comes live from the Red Eye Lounge, where piano Player Buddy Toupee leads us on a voyage of murder, mystery and music. In a world of smoke and mirrors, shadows and shattered dreams, Sam Galahad is on a desperate search for a missing blonde as he struggles to solve who killed the corrupt city tycoon Adrian Wasp. Was it Carol Indigo, the party girl with the big secret? Or Laura Vesper, the woman with a past? Perhaps it was the enigmatic bag lady called the Princess? Will Sam break the case before the crooked cops and the bad guys break him? Will he find the love he thought he’d lost?

SynopsisIn the year that the nation commemorates the 100th anniversary of the start of World War One, Bertolt Brecht’s play is brought vividly to life against a backdrop of cannons, in a promenade performance that draws on the Woolwich Arsenal’s history as part of Britain’s war machine, and highlights the human cost of surviving conflict. Audiences are invited to become war refugees, engaging with a cast of professional actors and a Community Chorus of 30 local people. They will go on a dramatic journey through the site, experiencing Woolwich’s own war history, and the historic Royal Arsenal Site itself through drama, poetry and song Mother Courage, a canteen woman, pulls her cart with her three children in the wake of an army, trading with the soldiers and attempting to make profit from the Thirty Years’ War. Her wheeling and dealing allows her family to thrive for a time, but she ultimately pays the price for her profiteering, leaving the audience to question who really gains.

ProducerRoyal Court Theatre and Lisa Dwan production in association with Cusack Projects Ltd.
SynopsisNot I is an intense monologue, set in a pitch-black space lit by a single beam of light. A disembodied female mouth floats eight feet above the stage and delivers a stream of consciousness, spoken, as Beckett directed, at the speed of thought.

Footfalls features the distant voice of ‘Mother’ and May who paces back and forth like a metronome, on a bare strip of floor.

Completing the performance is Rockaby, probably the most famous of Beckett's last works. It explores loneliness and features a prematurely old woman dressed in an evening gown, sitting on a wooden rocking chair that appears to rock of its own accord.

Armed with a box of bootleg cassettes and his obsession with all things West, this brown boy stumbles on his journey to become his true self: a white American. He’s already got a New Kids on the Block T-shirt – how hard can it be? From the raucous Gospel parlors of African-American Florida to the uptight racist salons of white New York City, Sevan learns that it takes more than an encyclopedic knowledge of The Little Mermaid to be part of their world. Drawn from the experience of his own harrowing reality, The Greene Card asks why it’s easier to survive warfare than to live as an immigrant.

Narrated and acted out as if a confession of his sins, it tells the story of a lacklustre middle-aged sacristan, Artie, whose recollections on one evening evoke a fleeting adulterous affair that lasts only a short while but leaves an impact for a lifetime.

SynopsisThe collection of songs interweaves the lives of two men and two women, and speak as much of such universal issues as love, loss, commitment, identity, ambition, growth, and connection, as the obsessions of youth. Each song stands as a story in itself: a son rages against his father, a woman lies next to a lover she doesn’t quite love, and all the characters find themselves in front of a computer on a Friday night, desperate not to be alone. Each character and each song is vivid, imaginative and utterly relatable as they explore the full, messy range of this fraught decade.

SynopsisFollowing 'We Macbeth' earlier this year where it exposed the CIA’s crimes during the last 50 years in US, George Eugeniou wrote a play about the role of this organisation in the Cyprus crisis. The title character of the 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 'Castro of Mediterranean'. Since at present there is no International Criminal Court of Justice, an imaginary trial is set at Theatro Technis. No one should be ‘untouchable’. Justice has no time limit.

SynopsisSHOOT, I DIDN'T MEAN THAT - With a ‘Sieg Heil’ here and a bang bang there, life is like a bunch of poppy fields. This dark comedy follows four women’s surreal downfall as they become intoxicated by the great wars. This isn’t just a game of battleships. Juliet waltzes into a difficult situation at Vienna’s famous flea market; two schoolgirls struggle not to giggle during Remembrance Day; an interpreter breaks her voice. Brits abroad, conflict tourism and a lot of disaster. A play about a shared fear for the future, inspired by Karl Kraus.

THE LAST DAYS OF MANKIND: THE LAST NIGHT - Karl Kraus’s epic response to the outbreak of WW1, its impact on the lives of the people, and the role of the media, is made up of over 200 scenes across five Acts, one for each year of the war, following fictional characters, archetypes and historical figures. While the main play was naturalistic, using material from newspapers and actual conversations, the epilogue takes on an expressionist, apocalyptic vision of a world destroyed by a war.

SynopsisJanuary 2010 - an earthquake in Haiti leaves a hundred thousand people dead and almost two million homeless. Meanwhile in a leafy north London suburb, six individuals sit down to avocado and prawns - 'so reassuringly 1970s' - followed by a monkfish stew. They admire their host's beautifully appointed kitchen, fret about their 'ambitious' mortgages, make holiday plans, compare mobile phone tariffs, connect with Facebook friends, and worry that they might after all just be ordinary - will history remember any of them, and if so, what for? A social event in which much is said but little communicated rapidly disintegrates as the wine flows and some hard truths are told. Muswell Hill is a blackly funny, touching and ultimately devastating play, exploring the disintegration of a relationship in a world in which the fragile veneer of comfort and contentment conceals realities too uncomfortable to face.
