THE ALIENS
by Annie Baker, directed by Peter Gill. KJ and Jasper are professional dropouts and best friends. They spend their days outside the back of a small coffee shop in Vermont , talking music and Bukowski. 17 year old Evan is just getting ready for life, eking out his Summer working at the café. KJ and Jasper draw him into their world of magic mushrooms, philosophical musings and great-bands-that never-were.

MY ROMANTIC HISTORY
By D C Jackson, directed by Lyndsey Turner. The Bush Theatre and Sheffield Theatres in association with Birmingham Repertory Theatre. Office romances are tricky. One moment you’re colleagues, then a quick grope after Friday night drinks and suddenly you’re in a relationship. When Tom and Amy get together after an office social, they find themselves living in each other’s pockets. But it’s not their lack of chemistry the problem: it’s that neither of them can quite get over their childhood sweethearts.

THE KNOWLEDGE
by John Donnelly, directed by Charlotte Gwinner. Examines what happens when a young teacher goes off the rails in a failing school.

LITTLE PLATOONS
by Steve Waters, directed by Nathan Curry. A group of West London parents are driven by desperation to take the new government up on their offer and start their own ‘free school'. They want to create an education that their children will enjoy rather than endure. But as they find their lives given over to a disturbing version of the Big Society, their fervour turns to panic.

MOMENT
By Deirdre Kinahan, directed by David Horan. A Tall Tales Theatre Company and Solstice Arts Centre production in association with the Bush Theatre. On a seemingly ordinary evening an Irish family sit down to tea. The difference tonight is that Nial is home, back from prison having committed a dark crime many years earlier with some news to share and a conscience to clear.

Looking for the best seats...
