THE SEAGULL
by Anton Chekhov , translated by Christopher Hampton . Directed by Ian Rickson , designed by Hildegard Bechtler . Starring Mackenzie Crook, Katherine Parkinson, Kristin Scott Thomas . Now I understand, Kostya, I've understood, that with our work doesn't matter whether its acting or writing what's essential is not fame or success, none of the things I used to dream about: it's the ability to endure. THE SEAGULL captures the struggle for new forms, the frustrations and fulfilments of putting words on a page.

93.2 FM
by Levi David Addai. Directed by Dawn Walton . Coach and Bossman are a dynamic duo tearing up the airwaves at Borough FM. Together they have become radio heroes, but someones getting above their station, putting Borough FM in the shade. Theres a storm brewing and the live phone-ins might not be able to provide all the answers. United they may stand but divided... 93.2FM is a sharp comedy about friendship, depicting the age-old dilemma of underground versus mainstream and how to remain loyal to your roots while following your dreams. Its about achieving your goals and what may, or may not be compromised along the way.

CATCH
by by April de Angelis, Stella Feehily, Tanika Gupta, Chloe Moss and Laura Wade. Directed by Polly Teale . Its like they want to tap into your soul watch your every move, monitor who you are, file a report on you and sell you off. There is a company that knows who you are. They trace every detail of your lifestyle, habits and spending. They know your darkest fears and secret hopes. They can change you. Claire has created a new identity for herself and promises to do the same for others in crisis. She alone has unrestricted access to the company records. In Britain up to 300 million pounds per year is spent on the surveillance industry. With the national ID card on its way and endless ways of tracking people, how can we maintain our individuality and protect our privacy?
