SynopsisExplores the theatrical potential of augmented reality, near field communication and geocaching (using GPS to locate hidden packages), creating an invisible war where technology is a weapon as audiences seek hidden doors, crack codes and hack enemy systems. Players conduct surveillance on other players as they embark on a race across London to uncover the truth behind the ambiguous Emergency Treasury Fund. This two-part performance transforms London as we know it, taking the form of expeditions on the city’s streets followed by a performance in the Hacker’s Lair. The audience’s actions in the first section decide the story of the second, and further interaction there decides the end. Firing up competition between players, this is a show about discovery and the excitement and advantage of knowing something that someone else doesn’t.

SynopsisThey stand with their noses pressed together in an empty room. They roll and tumble, they dance and collide, they shout and paint. If they don't decide now, life will decide for them. Dee doesn't want Bea to be with Him. Dee thinks Bea should leave Him, and be with her. She doesn't fancy her, she doesn't want them to have sex. But they should be together. Because their love is the most important. Bea's phone won't stop ringing. They're sorry. It probably won't happen again.

But the person who’s having the worst day of her life is small-time businesswoman Donna Saxon of Saxon Court Financial Recruitment-to-Recruitment Services. Someone has stolen Donna’s phone and blocked the office toilet; her business partner has got cancer; her gold-plated golf clubs haven’t arrived; and her useless staff seem blissfully unaware that the company is about to go under. In fact they’re more interested in starting the office party. One of them will have to be fired. To make matters worse, Occupy protesters have started gathering outside the office door. But as Donna starts swinging her axe inside, she discovers that she has more to fear from her mercenary brood of young employees than from anyone waiting on the street.

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.

When his brother Lee ‘the drifter’ and petty thief decides to stop by, he pitches his own idea for a movie and convinces the producer to ditch Austin’s love story for his own trashy Western tale. Now they must work together to secure the deal. But with mistrust and jealousy bubbling under the surface and the heat of a Californian night melting away their inhibitions, their own flaws threaten to get in the way.

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.

The story of the Spear of Shango is about a brave young woman who must use her strength and agility to save her father's kingdom. But there's a problem, the story doesn't quite fit with the governor's vision of a united country...
