Description

The Body of an American (2M)

Two actors embody more than thirty roles in an exhilarating new form of documentary theatre, against a backdrop of some of the world’s most iconic images of war.

The House in Hydesville (5F/2M)

At once an exploration of familial abuse and the need for spiritual transcendence, a compelling “true ghost story”.

The Cherry Sisters Revisited (5F/1M)

The five Cherry sisters’ love of the vaudeville carries them to the bright lights of Broadway. A provocative comedy with music.

The Voyage of the Carcass (1F/2M)

Trapped in the ice at the North Pole, only three members of the doomed Carcass crew survive.

The Dear Boy (1F/3M)

James Flanagan is not a kind teacher. Is he a good teacher? He likes to think so. An intimate and stirring character study of a man forced to face his past, his present, and the life he may still yet live.

'A feisty docu-drama about Paul Watson...a fascinating mix of troubled and troubling biography and autobiography...holds you in a steely grip' Time Out

'An engrossingly subjective docu-drama which feels psychologically acute and politically important...a really superb piece of theatre.' Stage
