SynopsisA sequel to The Browning Verison. Set in the post-war austerity years of late 1940s, The Browning Version is the story of a public school classics master, Andrew Crocker-Harris, who has been forced to resign his position after many years due to ill health. ‘The Crock’ (as he has been nick-named by his pupils) has not been a very successful or popular teacher. The main focus of his teaching - and his deep love - is Greek tragedy.

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.

SynopsisHoke’s Bluff navigates the curious territory in which our emotional responses to American dreams outweigh our rational understanding of what America (and the Western world) really stands for. With a nostalgic yearning for the simplicity of a world that never really existed, Hoke’s Bluff meets its audience on the bleachers and tells them an underdog story that’s been told a million times before. It reworks the hackneyed formulas of high school storylines and the cheap sentimentality of inspiring locker room speeches to find out what it means to be a winner (on the inside).

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.

SynopsisEveryone has heard of the Three Wise Men, but have you heard of Artaban, the fourth? One day Artaban, the wisest of them all, spots a beautiful new star in the sky. It’s the biggest and brightest star he has ever seen, and he knows it will lead him to something special. A special baby in fact, so special that everything (and that means everything) must be perfect. Join Artaban as he prepares for a momentous journey. But what should he wear? What gift should he bring? And where on earth will he find the right camel?
