SynopsisA new musical adaptation. 1860s Paris. In a small dusty haberdasher’s shop near the Seine in the dank, narrow Passage du Pont Neuf, the young and beautiful Therese Raquin is trapped into a loveless marriage to her sickly cousin, Camille. While her husband is out all day working, Therese spends her days confined behind the counter of a small shop and - every Thursday evening - watching her domineering aunt, Madame Raquin, play dominoes with an eclectic group of ne'er-do-wells. Until the Thursday evening that her husband Camille brings an old friend to the party – the alluring Laurent – and she embarks on an illicit affair that leads Therese to abandon all her inhibitions and loyalties as their brutal and overwhelming passion overturns both their lives and has results that nobody could have foreseen...

Other InfoOriginal Music composed by Demetri Kastelanides
'Stylised and expressionistic in both performance and design this production has a multi-rolling ensemble cast of seven using heightened movement and physicality, choreographed chorus sequences and detailed mime. Fusing the physical with Shakespeare’s own text, original music, and a simple design with a striking colour palette of black, white, and sudden shots of red, Blue Crate visually draw out and vividly explore Romeo and Juliet’s themes of conflict, opposites and paradox.'

Synopsis1833. Rural Ireland. The British Army arrives to translate Gaelic place names into the King’s English. Farm girl Máire finds herself torn between the affections of the local school teacher and the love of a British soldier, between her native tongue and a new language, between the comfort of the world she knows and the excitement of foreign possibilities. The resulting clash of cultures strikes at the heart of the community as they struggle to interpret a new language, and each other. What gets lost in translation?

SynopsisAbout the corrupt nature of many acquisitions and mergers, involving international businesses in most countries but particularly in Asia, takes the audience through the murky negotiations for the acquisition of an Indian textile factory. Aggressive executives from London deal with the shady underworld - but also honourable characters, both British and Indian, who demonstrate principled corporate responsibility to workers and the local community. An evolving relationship between two of the directors brings an element of love and compassion into the tense and very dangerous developments in the factory and the city of Mumbai as the deal progresses.

SynopsisA modern update of the classic Dumas novel The Black Tulip about the importance of good breeding. After years abroad, Dr Audrey Braddock thinks she’s finally found a home for herself and her special maize plants. Lincolnshire’s South Holland University may not be top-class, but at least it gives her a place to work. That is, if she can resist the incessant nagging of her 17th century Dutch ancestor, who insists that she complete his failed attempt to breed the perfect black tulip. And if she can outmaneuver Dr Adrian Vanderpol, a younger rival whose petunia experiments aren’t necessarily what they seem. And if she can figure out why her wayward daughter Perci pays so much attention to Adrian’s research. But can you really engineer a weapon of mass destruction from a tulip?

SynopsisBased around the timeless folk tales of The Arabian Nights, the enduring Islamic tales are collected and brought to life for a modern young audience by Shahrazad, a young girl torn between her home in Syria and her new life in the UK. Using everyday objects, the bookish Shaharazad fashions saucepans into crowns, old pipes into enchanted telescopes and a mop into a magic carpet to transport us into an imagined and fantastical world of kings viziers and jinns.

SynopsisJohn and Del are just two regular teenagers who dream of nothing more than girls and football. Under the watchful eye of their local soccer team coach Father O’Donnell, they both show enough promise to pursue careers as professional footballers. But as political tensions begin to engulf their community, they have more than the fortunes of their team to worry about. Set against the backdrop of the political troubles in Northern Ireland in the early 1970’s, The Beautiful Game is the story of an ordinary group of teenagers in an extraordinary situation.

SynopsisIt is 1975. Britain is fighting a secret desert war. A soldier returns traumatised by his experiences. His wife and daughter struggle to come to terms with his despair. As an escape his little girl remembers how he used to be, the perfect Dad, big and strong, hilarious and wild. It is very much about her, about growing up and seeing the world in all its complexity. World War 1 started a century ago and ShellShock is one of the world-wide events which will commemorate those shattering hostilities. The story of the musical was inspired by a conversation between the writer, Tim Thomas and his grandmother when he was just a small boy. Like all of her generation she endured that terrible time and he was transfixed by the tale of hope that she told.

SynopsisA magic show featuring puppetry and live Gypsy music, telling the story of Father Nandru ad his catastrophic vision of his village's demise. Five hundred years ago, founding fathers built a log church in a small village deep in the heart of Transylvania, where today the villagers still worship. Despite the priest's fondness for tuica (a local plum brandy) and a tendency to side with the Tsigani in local disputes, life remains pretty much unchanged. But when Eveline, the lop-faced daughter of a leading family, elopes with Vadim, the crippled son of the Roma dancing clan, Father Nandru has twenty four hours to pull the situation back from the brink. At the last moment, mysterious wolves emerge from the forest with surprising advice. The same evening, however, Father Nandru has a catastrophic vision of the village's demise and he sinks into despair. Now the little community must put aside their differences once and for all and pull together if anything is to survive into the future.
