SynopsisThree x 25 minute one-man shows by Craig Cosbie:

Swimming Pools: The Care and Attention of Swimming Pools is from a short story by well-known novelist William Boyd. A Beverly Hills swimming pool maintenance man's anal over-protection of his own pool provokes his girlfriend to terrible revenge.

Psychos: The Tell-Tale Heart by the 19th century high priest of horror, Edgar Allen Poe. A servant murders his master, but the still-beating heart grasses him up; the tick-tock of the rational versus the imagination’s uncontrollable passions. The Tell-Tale Heart is widely considered a classic of the Gothic fiction genre and is one of Poe's most famous short stories.

Spouses: a translation by Ranjit Bolt of Juvenal’s sixth satire. Satire VI is the most famous of the sixteen satires by the Roman author Juvenal. Satire VI is not merely a diatribe against women, but an all-out invective against marriage… marriage with a health warning.

Synopsis1789. Six years after the end of the American Revolution. Across the channel, the French Revolution has only just begun. In Britain, an anxious government is suppressing any kind of dissident activity. Angry mobs roam the streets in support of church and state. Recently returned from America where his writing has helped forge the new Republic, Thomas Paine is running through these streets, pursued by government agents: branded as one of the most dangerous men in Europe. When all seems lost, he remembers that a fellow dissident, the poet William Blake, lives in a cottage nearby and en route to seek sanctuary in his garden encounters both William and his wife, Catherine, sitting naked up a tree reading from Paradise Lost...

Squandering it on lavish parties and the company of society’s elite, who does Timon have to turn to when the money and the champagne stop flowing? A tale of greed and creditors gone bad – Timon of Athens resonates with a world flooded with newspaper headlines and stories about credit, false expenses claims and the constant lending and borrowing of cold, hard cash.

Using a mixture of live performance, spoken word, shadow puppetry and object manipulation Joni and Dana attempt to recount the story of their 'sort of' holiday, whilst exploring the themes of memory, family and war. With the centenary of World War One this year, and the 70th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz in 2015, the production is responsive and timely to these significant historical events.

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.

SynopsisIn the scorching heat of summer, the streets of Verona simmer with tension. Two rival families are fighting an undeclared war. With emotions running high, Verona is a powder keg of barely suppressed violence. And when love strikes the houses of Montague and Capulet, it sparks a chain of events that will blow the city apart.

SynopsisHenry IV has seized control of the English crown from Richard II, however he is struggling to maintain control of his power. Enemies are gathering both abroad and much closer to home. The Percy family, once loyal supporters who helped Henry with the hostile takeover of the crown, become bitter enemies. The young Harry Percy, a favourite commander of the King’s and a man the King prefers over his own son, decides to take action against the ruler. The King’s own son, Prince Harry, is a public embarrassment who spends his time womanising and drinking in taverns with the likes of the notorious rogue, Falstaff. As the crisis grows and war looms the King faces the ultimate leadership challenge. Effective crisis management is called for, but is Henry a capable-enough leader?

SynopsisCynthia's university life is a nightmare. She hates her peers, her campus and she's beginning to hate herself. Her only 'friend' is Nicole - a scatterbrained party girl, desperate for popularity. In an effort to move up the social ladder, they join the only student society that appeals - the Speculative Analysis Society (Spec Anal for short) - a group on a quest to prove the existence of the paranormal. As it turns out, it's not a group at all; just a bloke called Dave in a bow-tie, a lone ghost enthusiast who believes that the isolated rural campus of Trent Park University is haunted by the spirits of witches that were burned at the stake on the grounds of the campus. Despite Cynthia's cynicism, the trio venture out into the seemingly endless fields at night. A harmless bit of fun? Or a night of terror they must fight to survive? Behold, The Probleming.

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.
