The Crucible

Thursday, 10 June, 2010

A dark cold night and the flames of the fire burn hot, the mood is one of mischief as Abigail leads the others in a merry dance. The rumours begin and the hysteria grows until the spurned lover points the finger in the wrong direction. Based on the Salem witch trials of 1692, The Crucible is a classic play that tells the fate of those ensnared in the persecution that leads to a tragic end.

We Fade to Black

Tuesday, 09 June, 2009

The clock is ticking. A 24:7 world can be a shock to the system. The blameless, shameless, nameless system that chews you up and spits you out. From the cradle to the grave seemingly inconsequential actions make up the chapters of a lifetime. This tongue in cheek, rough and tumble physical theatre piece is brash, bold, bolshy and brazen. The race is on, can the body clock be beaten and the games completed?

Pullman Car Hiawatha

Monday, 08 June, 2009

Thornton Wilder’s play is an exposure of American life, searching for the place of man within the vast terror and beauty of an ever-accelerating world. Set in a Pullman Railroad Car travelling from New York to Chicago, Wilder uses the incubator of a train car to explore the pulses of life as they collide physically, metaphysically and cosmically.
