1984 by George Orwell


Book tickets now

In George Orwell's 1984, people live under ignorant oppression in Oceania, a place where the Party scrutinizes human actions with ever-watchful eye of Big Brother. Defying a ban on individuality, Winston Smith dares to express his thoughts in a diary and pursue a relationship with the mysterious Julia. These criminal deeds bring Winston to the attention of the opposition and O’Brien, who then must reform the nonconformist.  1984  has never been more relevant and is compelling as it is terrifying, introducing the watchwords for life without freedom: BIG BROTHER IS WATCHING YOU.


Advisory note: This production contains smoking, strobe lighting and a smoke machine

Elephant's Graveyard by George Brant


 (a rehearsed reading)

Book tickets now

There was a town. There was a circus. There was a railroad. There was an elephant. And there was a man with red hair. In 1916, a tiny town in Tennessee will experience the greatest show on Earth. A sight never before seen by any man and it’s going to put them on the map, forever. Combining historical fact and legend, this poignant and revealing play sheds a harsh spotlight on mankind’s lust for spectacle, violence and revenge.

Jumpy by April de Angelis


 Book tickets now

 

A frank and very funny family drama, which questions parental anxieties and life after 50.
Hilary, just turning 50, once protested at Greenham Common and sees herself as a feminist. Now her protests tend to focus on persuading her teenage daughter to go out fully clothed. Married to Mark for far too long – they rub along in a comfortable but sterile relationship. Their daughter, Tilly, is going through the typical teenage tantrums of many girls of her age, but when Hilary and Mark discover that she has started sleeping with her boyfriend they have to decide if they want to be liberal or bring in some discipline.

Jumpy premiered at the Royal Court in October 2011 to rave reviews.
