After a year making a documentary and volunteering on the front-line of the European refugee crisis, critically acclaimed fringe theatre company Craft Theatre returns to London this summer with Sam Shepard’s The God of Hell, the first piece in a 12 month season of four shows.

The setting is a Wisconsin dairy farm, where the heifer-breeding Frank and Emma live in rustic isolation. But their peace has been shattered by Graig Haynes, a radioactive refugee from a plutonium-producing establishment. While he hides in the basement, a supposed salesman of patriotic baubles named Welch turns up in hot pursuit. What follows is a process of intimidation in which Welch not only gets his man, but terrorises the innocent mid-Westerners.

Director Rocky Rodriguez, Jr. says: “Shepard says the piece is “a take-off on Republican fascism”. It is eerie, it is satire, and it is goofy at times. It premiered in 2005, in response to the human rights abuses/justified experimentation revealed from declassified 'plutonium files' in which the US government injected/fed/and induced plutonium on unsuspecting citizens including the disabled, the pregnant, and the testicles of convicts, all for the creation of  fancy nuclear developments. The piece was viewed as a touch too far-fetched, but people didn't really know about these experiments at the time. With the rise of fake news, profit-seeking immigration detention centres, ICE, the far right in the USA/Europe and Trump-ism, climate denialism, undeclared war, prioritising the corporation over the citizen, society is heading towards the same place that they used to justify the plutonium experiments. All of a sudden Shepard’s satire demands real reflection.” Craft Theatre actors have previous experience including the RSC, ENO, Royal Court, and many major motion pictures.

Craft Theatre are producing a full season of 4 shows over the next 12 months across multiple London fringe venues, including The God of Hell.

Other pieces will include: The Nazi Comparison - devised with excerpts from Hanns Johst’s Schlageter (one of the few “Nazi” plays) juxtaposed with contemporary political rhetoric; and His Name Was Samir Nasrallah - devised from the story of Rachel Corrie, and Craft Theatre’s first-hand experience on the front line of the European Refugee Crisis.

A modern day insom-com that focuses on sleep deprivation, existential angst, alternative realities... and sheep.

''London's a fragile flower, she needs darkness to make her grow, not sunlight. When night falls, she blooms. All kinds of sh*t goes down on her watch"

It’s been twenty-one nights since Dexy last slept. It could be down to his choice of pillow. Duck Down. It could be down the heating in his flat. Nonexistent. Or it could be the fact his girlfriend’s missing, the police are scouring the streets and Dexy’s past is catching up with him. 

Ensconced in his third floor flat, over the course of an evening Dexy attempts to cast his mind back and fit the relevant pieces together, but as the blare of the sirens gets louder and night turns to morning the lines between dreams and reality and rational thinking and insanity become ever more blurred.

As if this wasn’t enough, Dexy is visited by three very different people during the night.

Ciaran Lonsdale stars as Dexy (World Mad, Soho Theatre; Glamour Girl, Maltings Arts Theatre; The Santa Suicides Web Series), with James Groom as Leo (Simon Stephen's Christmas, White Bear Theatre; Robert Dudley Earl in the Channel 5 drama Elizabeth), Niamh Watson as Margot (Amber in Dreamless Sleep, Arts Theatre; Still I See My Baby, Sky or the Bird) and Bruce Kitchener as Vic (Frank in Snapshot, Hope Theatre; Four Thieves Vinegar, Baron's Court Theatre). 

Over the past ten years David Cantor has written for television and the stage and worked on a variety of shows including three of the BBC’s most successful sitcoms, My Family, Two Pints Of Lager & A Packet Of Crisps, and The Green Green Grass. David also wrote the dark comedy Noddyland, which was entered into Channel 4’s Comedy Blap season last year and has contributed to sketch shows including BBC’s That Mitchell & Webb Look, children’s programmes such as CITV’s My Phone Genie and CBBC’s Fit while supplying material for the anarchic game show Shooting Stars. Away from television, David has previously written two stage plays. Stopping Distance had a full cast read through at the Old Vic and is currently in development at The Park Theatre, while I Play For Me was performed at the White Bear in Kennington in 2015.

Written by Morgan Lloyd Malcom, The Wasp is an electric thriller asking how far beyond the playground we carry our childhood experiences and what lengths we are willing to go to overcome them.

Why do hurt people hurt people? Can we transcend and forgive others for the misguided wrongs done to us in childhood?

Heather and Carla haven't seen each other since school. Their lives have taken very different paths - Carla lives a hand-to-mouth existence, while Heather has a high flying career, a husband and a beautiful home. And yet, here they are in a cafe having tea and making awkward conversation. That is, until Heather presents Carla with an unexpected proposition.

Playwright Morgan Lloyd Malcolm’s play Belongings was produced at the Hampstead Theatre and Trafalgar Studios in 2011 to critical acclaim and was shortlisted for The Charles Wintour Most Promising Playwright Award and the Whatsonstage.com Best New Play Award.

Lisa Gorgin, seen most recently in White Gold (BBC), was Wendy-Jo in the original West End cast of Footloose (Novello Theatre and Playhouse Theatre). Selina Giles has performed with Robert Downey Jr (Restoration), Sam Rockwell (Piccadilly Jim), Jean Claude Van Damme and Stephen Rea (Until Death), and Natalie Portman and John Hurt (V for Vendetta).

Director Anna Simpson trained at the Bristol Old Vic Theatre School. UK directing credits include: Dorian Gray (Pleasance Theatre, and Edinburgh Festival Fringe), The Government Inspector (Pleasance, London and Edinburgh Fringe Festival); Close to You (Southwark Playhouse, London; Royal Irish Academy of Music; Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2013); and Disco Pigs (Tristan Bates, London; the Brewery Theatre, Bristol).

Designer Mike Leopold has been nominated  for Off West End Awards twice for Best Set Design - once for Proof at the Tabard Theatre, and again for Chummy at The White Bear Theatre. Other Theatre credits include: Thoroughly Modern Millie (Adelphi Theatre, showtime challenge); Hamlet (Bussey Building); and Montagu (Tabard Theatre).

PRESS RELEASE

The London Devised Theatre Intensive is a new two-week workshop for theatre makers to share and expand their practice of devising theatre. With masterclasses from guest artists including Bryony Kimmings, Kristine Landon-Smith (L'Ecole Philippe Gaulier; Tamasha Theatre), Tom Mansfield (Upstart Theatre), Nir Paldi (Theatre Ad Infinitum), and Lee Simpson (artistic director of Improbable), peer-to-peer practice exchange sessions, and creating performance, the Intensive aims to inspire theatre makers, raise the profile of devised theatre, and foster international connections.

The Intensive is created by Amy Clare Tasker Performance Lab (artistic director Amy Clare Tasker, executive director Susie Italiano), in partnership with Blue Panther Productions (executive producer Laura Lundy). With a diverse and cross-platform background, the creators want to use their experience of similar events in the US to bring the excitement, energy and enthusiasm of a 2 week intensive course in devising theatre to London.

They welcome applications from theatre makers in any discipline: directors, writers, performers, choreographers, composers, and designers. Each attending theatre maker will have the opportunity to share their favourite devising techniques, and add new ones to their creative toolbox. Over the course of two weeks, small groups will devise short pieces to be shared in an informal setting at the end of the programme. 

The London Devised Theatre Intensive will run using Open Space Technology. A radical alternative to the traditional theatre model, Open Space creates an anti-hierarchical environment for rapid generation of ideas and shared ownership of the work. Amy Clare Tasker Performance Lab uses Open Space as a practical way to match their method to their values: equality, inclusivity, presence, surprise, and possibility.

The Intensive has only 18 places available and discount offers available to promote accessibility.

Some girls would do anything to be on stage. This is Boys Club: a gender-bending satire on inequality by Two Tongue Theatre, coming to Jackson’s Lane as part of their Postcards Festival 2017.

Two unemployed actresses have no choice but to pass for men in order to get work. Together, they host the male cabaret ‘Boys Club’ and deliver a testosterone-fuelled routine of dances and macho jokes... until an accident forces them to rethink their options. Awaken your inner activist in this gender-bending satire from Two Tongue Theatre.

Two Tongue Theatre is London-based duo, Sharlit Deyzac and Leonor Lemee. Moved by a joyful attraction for what is strange, dark, funny and disturbing, their theatre playfully explores the female experience and combines intense physical performances, multiple languages and audience interaction. Boys Club is Two Tongue’s 3rd show, devised by the company, under the direction of dark clown master Peta Lily.

In November 2015, the ‘Sony Leaks’ revealed how top Hollywood actresses were getting paid less than their male counter-parts. This sparked Sharlit and Leonor’s desire to make a fun feminist piece drawing from their experiences as women in the entertainment industry.

Boys Club started its life as a 30min piece titled Twisted and Tongue Tied, which was performed throughout 2016 in the UK and France. In its full length version, Boys Club premiered at Voila! Europe Theatre Festival in November 2016 and has been touring London since. It has been programmed at Theatre Utopia, The Etcetera Theatre, Hackney Showroom and the King’s Head Theatre.

After running a successful scratch night and 24 hour play event, new collaborative theatre company emberfly theatre now come to Theatre N16 with their first full-length production, Heroines. This new devised piece sees six of Shakespeare’s women plucked from their individual plays, placed with us in the here and now in the 21st Century.

Instead of Lady Macbeth, you get Emma: Still a powerhouse, still ambitious but a bit less murderous. What about Ophelia? Would she be the same? Maybe not… Effie, inspired by both Ophelia and Hamlet, still struggles with her mental health, but wouldn’t any actor with 20 jobs? Who is Juliet without Romeo? Chilling with her best mate Ros, pre-drinking and essay writing. When “shrew” Kate isn’t causing drama, she resides on her yoga mat… to eat Nutella. When it all goes tits up, Delia the Defuser is always at hand. You know, they always say it’s the quiet ones? No wonder Shakespeare didn’t put this feisty lot in the same play!

emberfly theatre is a new collaborative theatre company of emerging artists. They seek to create work that has a focus on being positive and proactive whilst keeping the female story at the forefront. As a company with a focus on supporting emerging artists, they constantly try to provide support and platforms for emerging artists to develop skills, industry contacts and their creativity in a professional environment. Their first production, Heroines, employs six female actors and gives them the chance to be a part of the creativity from the early stages through a collaborative process.

Co-founders Joanne Sealey and Hannah Abbott met at East 15 Acting School where they trained together as actors and have wanted to create work together ever since. As actors starting out in the industry, Hannah and Joanne have both worked on several small tours and various theatre jobs. Hannah is also a founder of Fabletop Theatre established from an East 15 team who have performed their production The Girl and the Box at White Bear Theatre, it was later commissioned by Blue Elephant and then went on to Camden Fringe. Joanne is also founder of New Match Collective which performed their debut production of new script Swipe at Hen and Chicken’s as part of Camden Fringe.

Thanks for the inspiration Shakespeare, we'll take it from here.

PRESS RELEASE

BUY TICKETS HERE

Featuring live video feedback and sound sculpture, Monkhead Theatre presents a non-traditional adaptation of Nikolai Gogol’s 19th century masterpiece. Be prepared to explore the world beyond the stage, as we set our characters loose on 21st century London…

Dead Souls is Gogol’s unfinished epic satire of Russian society, the hilarious story of Pavel Chichikov’s twisted quest to acquire as many dead serfs as he can. Dead Souls is a darkly comic novel about the power of the Capitalist system to turn human beings into numbers and the ways in which cynical individuals exploit this, eroding their own humanity in the process. One hundred years on from the revolution, the big and scary question of Russian literature - In what kind of society do we want to live? - has never been more relevant to a Western audience.

Monkhead is a minority ethnic and female-led theatre company specialising in experimental adaptations of classic literature. Chloë Myerson is a working television writer represented by The Agency, and Nico Pimparé is a working actor and director, and a member of the Young Vic Directors Programme and of the National Youth Theatre. Together they formed Monkhead Theatre in 2017, inspired by a mutual love both of the well-structured narratives and ambitious social arcs of classic literature and the wild rock & roll playfulness of experimental multimedia theatre. Monkhead adopts a holistic and ensemble-based approach to theatre-making, where the entire creative team build a world together from the collective imagination. The work in the rehearsal room is based around Lecoq, Bogart and Grotowski principles - including video, physical theatre and sound sculpture.

Dead Souls stars Toby Osmond (Thomas Cromwell in Henry VIII and His Six Wives, Channel 5), Joshua Jacob (Jeremy in Switch, Tricycle Theatre) and Jules Armana (nominated for Best Actor in the Hof Independent Fim Festival for his performance in Meier, Müller, Schmidt, Förderpreis Neues Deutsches Kino).

After their last show at Theatre N16, January’s Brains, Thick & Thin Theatre return to Theatre N16 with their signature brand of funny, fast paced comedy tinged with irony; taking everyday settings and injecting them with a generous helping of the absurd. This time, they present a new play about democracy, power and… vampires.

In a not too dissimilar world to our own, where clunky metaphors are realised, Whitehall has been infiltrated by clans of bloodsucking creatures vying for control of the masses. After a by-election is triggered in the West Country constituency of Milford, vampires Frank Maynard and Jonathan Laurence emerge as the two front-runners for the seat. While fresh-faced Frank is groomed for governance by his short-fused campaign manager Julian Webster and ex-flame Susan Baker, Jonathan relies on his own Machiavellian methods of power brokering to assure victory at any cost, helped by his trusty if sarcastic aide Joanna Foster. With intrepid reporter Fiona Ripinsky hot on their trails and the campaign causing unexpectedly non-vampiric problems, the two candidates will soon realise that politics can be one bloody affair…

Suckers is a raucous comedy that pokes fun at the political landscape with its tongue firmly in its cheek. Thick & Thin Theatre are a young company based in London, founded in 2016 by Cameron Szerdy, Tom Spencer & Jack Dent.

Theatre N16 is a trailblazing London fringe venue, focused on producing and programming top quality new writing and selected existing works. Theatre N16 is proud of their commitment to the welfare and development of creatives, operating under an Equity Fringe Agreement. This promoting and nurturing of talent means that Theatre N16 is a bastion for development within the context of a society in which the arts are increasingly struggling to stay afloat.

New play The Passion of the Playboy Riots is based on the published writings of W. B. Yeats and Lady Gregory, who founded the Irish Literary Theatre, and Patrick Pearse, a charismatic but troubled schoolteacher and the first of the leaders of the Easter Rising to face the firing squad. It tells the true story of the role played by theatre in the origins of the IRA. 

Can art be propaganda? Can propaganda be art?

The Passion of the Playboy Riots is set backstage during performances of ground-breaking Irish plays: Cathleen ni Hoolihan in 1902, The Playboy of the Western World in 1907 and The Plough and the Stars in 1926. Yeats and Lady Gregory want to raise the profile and status of Irish culture in support of the campaign for Home Rule, and to support the best new Irish writers. They are shocked when Pearse and others accuse them of being unpatriotic and insufficiently Irish.

As we strive to predict the effects of Brexit on the Northern Ireland Peace Process, the Scottish independence movement, and on the rise of popular nationalism across Europe, the lessons of the Irish experience a century ago could hardly be more relevant.

Northern-Irish Catholic-raised actor Justin McKenna is delighted to be playing Patrick Pearse, seen by many as the embodiment of the 1916 Easter Rising. "You don't need to be an expert in Irish history to follow the story. It’s about three real people and their relationships, hopes and ambitions. The historical detail is in the background and, like all Irish history, it’s fascinating and sometimes surprising.”

Writer Neil Weatherall previously worked for a major defence contractor as their liaison with the Prime Minister's Office, the Cabinet Office, Home Office, Foreign Office and related agencies. In 2010 he served with the RAF Regiment in an intelligence role in Kandahar, Afghanistan. This is his second play.

Recipient of the PEN U.S.A. Award in Drama, Lonely Planet originally premiered in Northlight Theatre, Illinois in 1993. Considered his most widely performed work, this production marks its UK premiere from award-winning playwright Steven Dietz, recently placed eighth on the list of the Top Ten Most Produced Playwrights in America, equal to Edward Albee and Tennessee Williams. 

It’s the 1980’s in an unknown American city. There is no internet and mobile phones are a rarity, sharing information and knowledge is near impossible. It’s dark, and communication is hard. A poster appears at a local store, it’s a photo of a person’s torso with lesions all over. It’s an unknown condition that spreads quickly. 

Lonely Planet is a heartfelt, funny and ultimately moving play that focuses on the friendship between Jody, a cautious and thoughtful man who insulates himself in the map store he owns; and Carl, a frequent visitor to the store with an unusually vivid imagination and multiple, ever-changing occupations. Carl notices Jody has been isolating himself from the world and starts bringing chairs into his shop to convince him to confront the fears which prevent him from leaving his store. The play shows an individual’s struggle to come to terms with illness, their own mortality and the stigma associated with AIDS.

Director Ian Brown was artistic director and chief executive of the West Yorkshire Playhouse and was previously artistic director of the TAG Theatre Company in Glasgow and the Traverse Theatre in Edinburgh.

Steven Dietz's 30 plus plays and adaptations have been seen at over 100 regional theatres in the United States, as well as Off-Broadway. International productions have been seen in over 20 countries and his work has been translated into 10 languages. Dietz is a two-time winner of the Kennedy Center Fund for New American Plays Award for Fiction and Still Life with Iris, as well as a two-time finalist for the Steinberg New Play Award for Last of the Boys and Becky's New Car. He received the PEN USA West Award in Drama for Lonely Planet and the 2007 Edgar Award© for Drama for Sherlock Holmes: The Final Adventure.

Heart to Heart Theatre present an exciting theatrical experiment: a “choose your own story” exploration of the developing boundaries between humans and artificial intelligence which lets you decide - could the will of a robot ever override the will of a man?

Meet Adam and April: a regular twenty something couple who enjoy socialising, going to the gym and bingeing on Netflix. Adam doesn’t always do his share of the dishes, and April sings country songs that annoy Adam in the shower. They're not perfect, but they were blissfully generic until April's body started shutting down. They have gone from building dreams of a future to arguing about how long April should live hopelessly before meeting her maker - a corporation who bring their story to your attention.
Now, as April's demise hangs heavy in the air between them, you are invited to explore with them what it was that made them so perfectly average; and given a powerful vote to decide whether she should be allowed to die before Adam is ready to say goodbye.

AI Love You is an interactive show by Heart to Heart Theatre which discusses the relationship between humans and artificial intelligence. Casting the audience as an ‘Ethical Steering Committee’ for a corporation who are striving ahead in the AI field, they decide the fate of the characters, and make heart-breaking decisions about their lives that linger long after the lights have gone up.

PRESS RELEASE

Exchange Theatre returns to the Drayton Arms Theatre with Misanthrope, by Moliere, as part of their yearly Bastille Festival – a celebration of French theatre, performed in English and French. 

In a time of ‘alternative facts’ and ‘fake news’, Misanthrope finds unanticipated echoes in the world today. Alceste, the most loyal man in the world, lacks only one virtue: indulgence for other’s behaviours. His search for genuineness against hypocrisy, special interests and treachery calls for a new London production in 2017. With his unique touch, Off West End Best Director nominee David Furlong returns to direct, fresh from his stint at the Royal Opera House. 

David Furlong says: “After last year’s recognition from our peers, the press and the audience, and following the conversation we started in a post-Brexit UK, it seems that we have found our place as ‘outsiders’. Ten years after our first steps into translations of rare French-speaking plays, we are so proud to produce bold double productions in two languages and hold an annual festival for migrants and multi-lingual theatre makers. And it’s only logical that we will carry on exploring our unique language of diversity and the variety of processes that make ours as a company. We’re thrilled to follow last year’s success with another passionate effort at making theatre for our time.”

Exchange Theatre is an international company established in 2006 in London in order to translate and produce unknown or rare French-speaking plays in English. Led by David Furlong and Fanny Dulin, the company translates plays from major French playwrights for the first time in London and off Broadway) before being resident at the French Institute from 2010 to 2012.

“Arms pinned down at each corner of this crux – a handmaid crucified by the hands of lust.”

New young writer/director AJ presents his first play, AISHA, which through rhythmic verse, heavily influenced by contemporary spoken word, discusses the practice and repercussions of child marriage; a practice still perpetrated in the UK, with the Home Office estimating that between 5,000 and 8,000 young people a year are at risk.

AISHA is about an underage girl forced by her parents to marry a 51-year-old man at the age of 14. Aisha is sold in exchange for an expensive dowry, a dowry that Aisha’s parents use to better themselves and abandon their daughter: an act justified by cultural and religious traditions. The man that Aisha is forced to marry and live with is sadistic and abusive. She is forbidden to leave the house; communicate with the outside world; shower or bathe herself on a regular basis; and is denied every human right. Aisha is bound to domestic duty and forced to submit to any sexual act her husband wishes to bestow upon her. How will she continue to cope?   

The cast includes Alexander Lincoln (MMBF 'Rising Star' 2016), Olivia Valler-Feltham (Mountview), Ayo Oyelakin (Actors Temple and Anthony Meindl’s Actor Workshop) and Sabrina Richmond (New York Film Academy, New York), and the theatrical debut of second-year University student Laura Adebisi, who plays the now 17-year-old titular role.

25-year-old writer, director and producer AJ, was raised in South East London, Woolwich. He says: “I strive to create unconventional and thought-provoking work that audience members can deeply engage with. Theatre should be and can be used as a medium to transform society. Aisha is a clear representation of this; I chose to artistically portray the grave effect child marriage can have on a child, in hope that the conveying of this will bring to light a social-ill that is somehow dangerously overlooked.”

Production company AILIA is creating a new theatre for radical, free-spirited artists; and the open-minded spectator. A large percentage of the box office sales from AISHA will be donated to certain forced marriage, child marriage, and child sexual exploitation charitable organisations.

After a critically acclaimed sell-out run at the Finborough Theatre, Phil Willmott’s new production of Arthur Miller’s Incident at Vichy transfers to the King’s Head Theatre. In this forgotten masterpiece about Jewish registration in Nazi-occupied France, Miller’s play seems closer than ever to today’s world of “Extreme Vetting” and religious persecution.

Director Phil Willmott says: “Demand to see this production took us all by surprise. With the show selling out after previews and even returned tickets snapped up within hours, I'm absolutely delighted that we're to embark on a second run at the King’s Head and that many more people will experience this powerful and poignant drama. With the rise of the far right in Europe, no one can afford to ignore the sometimes uncomfortable truths about compliance and complicity laid bare by Miller's depiction of ten disparate and terrified prisoners, pulled off the streets and awaiting racial profiling.”

King’s Head artistic director Adam Spreadbury-Maher says: “We’re so thrilled to have Phil Willmott back at the King’s Head Theatre, and the smash success of Incident at Vichy is proof-positive of the power of pub theatre. It’s a pleasure to be able to give a wider audience a chance to experience Miller’s painfully relevant play.”

In the detention room of a Vichy police station in 1942, eight men have been picked up for questioning but none are told why they are held, or when they can leave. At first, their hopeful guess is that only their identity papers will be checked – but as each man is removed for interrogation, some are set free, some are never seen again, and the stakes rise for those who remain… A haunting examination of the cold, bureaucratic efficiency of evil – and the shared humanity that might overcome it.

The cloakroom attendant of a national museum invites the audience in a journey to the secrets of her profession, which is no other than the study of human nature. By opening the gates of the sacred temple which is the museum, artefacts come to life and visitors take mythical dimensions. Condemned lovers, an unfortunate queen and a young painter help the cloakroom attendant in her pursuit of happiness in a world filled with the beauty of art and the ugliness of war.

Poetry can be found in the humblest of things, and even more in these which people scorn.

The cloakroom attendant is a witty and poetic one-woman show, written and performed by Dimitra Barla. The world of the woman behind the cloakroom counter is a mixture of reality, imagination and aspirations. The plot is three-folded comprising of stories from the attendant’s daily routine in the cloakroom, fictional stories inspired by artefacts and insights into visitors to the museum. The play will have its debut performance on June 2nd and 3rd in London at the Canal Café Theatre.

Dimitra Barla trained at East 15 Acting School in London and Embros Drama School in Athens. She has directed and performed the shows SOLO (Vault festival 2014 and Eleusis festival 2013), Medusa the lady in the mirror (Athens January 2012 and Acreide, 2011) and Tales of female madness (Athens May 2012). All plays received four star reviews. Dimitra holds lead parts in the UK feature film I love London and the awarded Greek film The cypress deep down. She is also currently developing the short film The velveteen rabbit- A tale of love and addiction.

The 49 is a poignant, moving new play by Gary Thomas which takes place before the Orlando Gay Nightclub massacre in June 2016 up to the night when 49 people were murdered by a single gunman. The play explores sexuality, identity, and what it is to be safe in a modern world.

Where's your safe place? Where's the place that makes you be you? Somewhere to dance. To lose yourself. To not care. Every place should be that. But for some of us, that's not the case.

The 49 is directed by Theatre N16 deputy artistic director Courtney Larkin, and produced by executive director Jamie Eastlake. The cast includes Aaron Douglas (Inventive Sabotage Theatre Company), Harold Addo (Treasure Island, Iris Theatre) and Yasmine Holness-Dove (The Apprentice and The Young Apprentice), with sound design by Jethro Cooke (Karagula, How to Survive A Post-Truth Apocalypse) and lighting design by Theatre N16 technical manager Tom Burgess.

Inspired by the death of her own mother - TV comedy director Liddy Oldroyd (Drop the Dead Donkey, Gimme Gimme Gimme) - comedienne Amy Gwilliam brings Mummy back to London. To the cabaret, where she belongs.

Fourteen years ago, during break, Elizabeth lost her mother. She was sixteen. Two days later, she started her period. Ouch. Today, a celebrated Egyptologist, Professor Niccoll is Guest of Honour at her old school Alumni event. She has decided to use the platform to promote her new book: MUMMY or the Art of Saying Goodbye. She knows everything about death. She thinks. But confronted by the ghosts of her past, memories stir and a Mummy returns. The time has come to unwind.

Amy is a freelance theatre maker and teacher, and co-founder of Spain-based Teatro Entre Escombros (“sublime, ridiculous”), for which she continues to work as an Associate Artist. She trained at the École Philippe Gaulier (2008-10). Current work includes MUMMY, as solo performer/deviser and DE MONSTER as dramaturg/director for Rei Sem Roupa in Portugal. Recent work includes Jean Genet’s THE MAIDS (France, Candad, UK); Jean Cocteau’s THE HUMAN VOICE (Spain/France) and 31.

Pure Fluke Theatre bring their new production Blocked to the Brighton Fringe 2017 – a searing dissection of the dangerous functions of humour in a new play about the silence society imposes on the infertile and how one woman, despite achieving fame and success, cannot bear to not bear a child. 

We meet a comedienne at the top her game. Her audacious routine challenges women’s bovine desire to have children – she advocates abortion, because of overpopulation. She is exposed as an unreliable narrator as she unwittingly reveals she has been trying for years and admits to the traumas of failed IVF treatment and the hurtful flippancy of the fertile world, and her tight comic act descends into a squirm-inducing meltdown, yet retains the high octane comedy till the bitter end. Dropped by her agent/husband for her furious tirade, she ends up playing at low rent dives – but realises nobody is listening. 
In the event of tragic life events like cancer or death, there is a grieving period and the loss is acknowledged publicly, allowing the griever to move on. Infertility is a constant rollercoaster of hope and disappointment over many years, causing severe anguish for those who spend all their time and money on treatment, which doesn’t work for the majority. The silently infertile rarely receive adequate support or help, making it difficult to function in a society which reveres children and marks social occasions with family celebrations. 

Robert Winston, the inventor of IVF (and former oncologist) regrets how unregulated the fertility industry is today and says ‘infertility is worse than cancer’. He has said he has found it difficult to get interviews, as ‘no newspaper wants to publish this’.

Pure Fluke Theatre create daring, comic roles for women over age 35. Previous work includes In a Better Place (Brighton Fringe 2015), a sold-out, promenade, site-specific show at The Hotel Pelirocco; and How To Make Money From Art (Camden Fringe 2015).

Following highly acclaimed, sell-out performances in Dublin, New York, Sydney and Edinburgh, 5 Guys Chillin’ returns to London for a limited three week season. Woven together using the real words of real guys found on Grindr, 5 Guys Chillin’ is a state-of-the-nation play addressing one of the most important public health crises of the twenty-first century, frankly discussing chemsex in taut, intimate and unflinching verbatim drama.

5 Guys Chillin’ is addressing this urgent crisis, and has thus been performed all over the world to great acclaim. Writer/director Peter Darney says: “I hope this play shows some of the good times, some of the bad times, and encourages you think about what is right for you. It’s your choice, no one else’s. But let’s all talk, look out for each other, and make our decisions with free will, from an informed place.”

With more and more gay men falling into addiction, and more incidents of chemsex-related crime, discussing this issue has never been more urgent – and it isn’t going away. David Stuart of 56 Dean Street, a health clinic in Soho, still sees approximately 3000+ drug cases per month, and that number is not decreasing. He says “Gay communities around the world are in the throes of a profound cultural shift; some of this is manifesting as poor sexual wellbeing, and chemsex. We need kind hearts and cool heads to address it and I believe theatre, at its very best, can help us to do this. I’m so pleased that Peter Darney has had the courage and compassion to address these issues through the prism of true stories; this is verbatim theatre. This is community.”

Discover the “real” Egypt in Egyptian Extravaganza, a comical and thought-provoking immersive cabaret-inspired theatre performance, where roaming characters invite you to explore the impact the discovery of King Tutankhamun’s tomb had on everything from fashion and film to music and dance in the West. Come to a night of new old fashioned intrigue and entertainment, as you are or dressed up to the nines in your best Egyptian finery, but do hold onto your jewellery - you never know what might lurk in the shadows…

What happens when you disturb the tomb of a notorious pharaoh? The world goes totally Tut mad! Travel back in time to 1920s Egypt, where King Tut engages archaeologists in a battle of wit and witticisms over what is the 'real' Egypt. In this immersive cabaret-esque show, the audience are invited to participate in a comical argument set between King Tut and the archaeologists who discovered his tomb while they encounter and explore real accounts (and not so real) from 1920s-50s Egypt.

Egyptian Extravaganza explores the concepts of cultural appropriation and its supposed antithesis – authenticity. The show is designed to use iconic imagery and specific histories to create a narrative that explores these famous characters, whilst also challenging how the West portrays and romanticises Egypt – looking at “Tut-mania” from the perspective of authentic Egyptian culture and the appropriated inspiration it gave to everything from Hollywood films to fashion for multiple decades.

Producer Soha Khan worked in Saudi Arabia with the King Abuldaziz Centre for World Culture, where she programmed performances and produced art projects. She worked as a production assistant with the National Youth Theatre of Great Britain on the Commonwealth Games, and is working with Les Enfants Terribles, Seabright Productions and Complicite. She is also Associate Producer for The Quentin Dentin Show, coming to the Tristan Bates Theatre. Director Rosalind Othen trained at Rose Bruford College and her credits include NEWtopia with No Brand Collective and Reluctant Authority at Brink Festival 2016. Designer Katie Melton is currently pursuing her MFA at the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama. In addition to design, she also directs and performs.

Four of the most notorious women in Greek mythology – Phaedra, Helen, Medea, and Clytemnestra – have been removed from the blood-stained pages of their tragedies and brought together for the first time. They fight for their salvation in a detention-esque purgatory, cutting to the core of gender politics, asking what it means to be a mother, a sister, a wife, a woman.

Black Sheep Productions was formed in 2016 and is run by a “girl gang of creatives” who met on the MA course at ArtsEd in 2014 under Aileen Gonsalves, who is now an associate director at the RSC. They formed a company with the purpose of producing important, thrilling and bold stories through theatre and film, and work mainly with new writing. Full Circle was written by Madelaine Cunningham, who is also playing Clytemnestra.

The Angus Mackay Foundation is proud to present the revival of Care by Roy Mitchell (co-creator of New Tricks), originally presented at the Royal Court Upstairs, which has been revived with an ethnically diverse cast.  

A house in Birmingham has the constant glow of the TV, anthems of the 1970’s youth and a smell that lingers no matter how much the rooms are cleaned. Cheryl is anxious for the love which her illiterate, football watching, beer gurgling Terry is unable to give. Both manage to ignore the haunting cries coming from the cupboard whilst throwing in leftover food. The flat is feeling more enclosed than ever, but all they have hidden in the cupboard seems to finding itself into every corner of the house. Cheryl and Terry are willing to do anything to make the crying stop. 

Roy Mitchell was a member of the National and Birmingham Youth Theatres, and trained as an actor at Manchester Polytechnic School of Theatre. In 1982 he co-wrote a Musical for Granada, Visiting Day, with Kevin Malpass, which was the official ITV entry for the 1983 Prix Futura in Berlin. His first stage play, Care, was produced at the Royal Court Upstairs, also in 1983, directed by Antonia Bird. In 2002 he co-created the TV series New Tricks, which ran on BBC1 every year until 2015, as well as in over 30 countries around the world. Roy is currently working on a US TV series set in Maine for Fox TV and a stage play about the German expressionist painter Emil Nolde. 

The Angus Mackay Foundation for performing arts is administered by Kevin Malpass. Angus had many appearances in hit TV dramas and films such as Only Fools and Horses, Dr Who, One Foot In The Grave, and The Sweeney. While the TV and film roles where many (and in some cases, legendary), Angus was a champion for the theatre and his passion was the stage. During his 50-year career, he brought a piquant precision to everything from Stoppard to Shaw. His co-actors included such greats as Albert Finney, Vivien Leigh and Simon Callow.

Fresh from the 2017 VAULT Festival, where it picked up an Origins Award for Outstanding New Work, Living a Little by Finlay Bain now transfers to the Kings Head Theatre under the producers Riot House Theatre and the creators of the award winning Trainspotting Live, In Your Face Theatre. This absurd comedy drama, filled with booze and obscenities, garnered exceptional reviews and standing ovations across both VAULT and Edinburgh Fringe Festivals.

With not a zombie in sight, we are taken into a sanctuary of normality while the outside world rots. The play questions what it is to be alive; to be human, and what you would do if you thought today was your last. In a secure and stockpiled flat, complete with a TV, a sound system, video games, and enough alcohol to host a Scottish wedding, we meet best mates Rob, an ill-mannered, politically incorrect Scottish lad, and Paul, the gayest straight man ever. The arrival of battle hardened Penelope is the catalyst of the piece as she challenges their way of life whilst seeking the relative comfort and safety she needs, after living out in the wild of a zombie apocalypse.

Finlay Bain says: "I’m delighted with the response that Living a Little has received. It’s extremely rewarding to hear the laughs and gasps, and to see our work appreciated each night.” Jordan Murphy, director, says: “Finlay has written a captivating script filled with wit, colourful characters and powerful meaning. Living a Little pushes the boundaries of friendship and love throughout its hilarious and touching dialogue, which creates an energetic storyline that really gives the audience something to sink their teeth into.”

Following a fantastic run at the Tristan Bates Theatre, our favourite plus-size heroine returns in a reworked GODDESS for the Brighton Fringe Festival in May 2017. She will then transfer to Manchester’s fab spangly new arts venue, 53two.

Holiday Snow is a goddess. A middle aged, plus sized goddess with a right gob on her. With her mystical Maltese statue side-kick only she can communicate with, she does the round of daytime TV as the 'expert' in finding your inner deity. But the media spotlight is eons away from her grimy reality, and with a journalist pressing for answers the truth must be faced. Wendy Albiston is heartbreaking in Serena Haywood's funny, filthy one woman paean to the everyday goddess, the woman we hope we are and the woman we are destined to become. Goddess is achingly human. 

A story of middle-aged sexual power and potency, this is an irreverent, sometime foul-mouthed romp through what it means to be a woman on the wrong side of contemporary female ‘ideals’. And with a goddess statue ever present, we begin to see a fuller picture of what this might represent - from sexual awakening and love, to home and motherhood, to struggle, heartache, endurance.

Tangerine Theatre Company is the writer–director–actor trio, Serena Haywood, Jessica Radcliffe and Wendy Albiston. They first worked together on Mitzy’s Titsies for a fundraising cabaret night for Coppafeel, the breast-cancer awareness charity.

Get your butterfly clips, Union Jack print and body glitter ready – 2 Become 1 is an unrelenting party, a self-contained night out with the girls packed with charm, hilarity and good old-fashioned girl power. Following a sell-out run at two successive Edinburgh Fringe Festivals and a run at the King’s Head in 2016, this year the girls are bringing the party back to London, even bigger and even better, with new songs, new scenes and even more comedy to get under the skin of how we all respond to the perils, pitfalls and that mysterious force that fuels attraction and desire…

It’s the late ‘90s – Titanic, Brad and Jen, Mr Big, Bridget Jones and Things Can Only Get Better have captured every young woman’s heart, but Jess has just been dumped by her perfect man. Bored of her moping and weeping into her Haagen-Dazs, Jess’s friends take her out on A Big Night Out with a twist – speed dating. What better way to unbreak her heart than to meet a man a minute? With an infectious soundtrack of female pop icons of the ‘90s, and a dance routine or two along the way, crack open your Bacardi Breezers and don your best platform trainers to follow Jess, Amanda, Molly and Charlie on a wild night of meeting Mr Wrongs and Mr Rights in this comedy pop-musical.

Inspired by the music they grew up on and the group dynamics of their favourite girl bands, Natasha Granger and Kerrie Thomason invite you to join them from pre-drinks to speed-dates to the takeaway and taxi in this sparkling bubble of 90s nostalgia. With songs from The Spice Girls, All Saints, B*Witched, Cher, Shania Twain, Britney and Christina – and accompanying dance routines, of course – 2 Become 1 not only gets you on your feet and remembering those classic moves… but also exploring the impact of the sexual revolution of girl power and how the way men and women date now has evolved from it.

Kerrie Thomason says: “We really want to poke fun at the perceived glamour and shallowness of ‘90s pop culture, but in a very affectionate way – it was a time when strong bonds between female friends were actively celebrated and this is our tribute to that.”

The King's Head Theatre is London's first and foremost pub theatre and is led by Artistic Director, Adam Spreadbury-Maher. New writing, revivals, musicals, opera, cabaret and queer work sit side by side in an unashamedly eclectic programme of work. Thanks to an in-house agreement with Equity, we're leading the way when it comes to ethical employment on the fringe whilst our resident trainee director's scheme continues to provide comprehensive, vocational training to the rising stars of tomorrow. With high profile co-productions, national touring and transfers to and from the biggest arts festivals in the world, we're certainly not slowing down!

After creating a splash on the Edinburgh and Brighton Fringes, including winning the FringeGuru Editor’s Choice Award and being nominated for ‘Most Groundbreaking Act’ by Latest 7 Magazine, ONEOHONE returns to London with a mix of old and new scenarios. 

In 101, a small audience is directly involved in an interactive performance grounded in the fundamental values of traditional and classical storytelling. Guided by the cast using a mixture of suggestion technique, physical theatre and improvisation, every audience member is personally involved in the performance. 

There are 5 separate performances: KNOW ME (...at my worst to know me at my best.  The others have two faces / I place myself in your hands / Peel away my skin); FIND ME (...under the moon; chase me laughing through the trees. Keep true, love); SAVE ME (…from the dark; innocence crumbles. You are my teacher); TRUST ME (...and only me; you face betrayal.  Mark me, and stay close); BIND ME (...so we’ll never break apart; don’t break the circle. I’ll never let you go).

ONEOHONE Theatre Company is a performing arts group founded in 2009 to develop new, accessible and democratic approaches to theatre. We’ve performed our critically-acclaimed signature piece, 101, throughout the UK, in Croatia as part of the NU:Write Festival, and in the USA, where we were visiting artists at Northwestern University, Chicago. We have also performed immersive adaptations of several classic texts, including ‘Dracula’, ‘Woyzeck’ and Jane Austen’s ‘Emma’. Now in our sixth year, we’re devising new shows and looking for new performance opportunities.

The heistess is back in town. One week, three jobs; she's good, but can she pull it off? Sublime is a provocative new play by Sarah Thomas, directed by Ben SantaMaria.

After a two year estrangement Sophie bursts back into her brother’s life, claiming to need his help in a series of thefts to cover a debt she owes in her new home in Corsica.  Upset at her absence and seeming to have settled down with his girlfriend Clara, Sam is unable to say no to a last bash at an old, exciting life. As they don their costumes and practice their old grifting routines, old emotions quickly resurface and collide, forcing them to question the new lives they have built for each other. Can Sophie lure Sam away from domestic coupledom to rekindle their old crime partnership and save her skin?

The original music is a blend of musical theatre, soulful ballads and catchy rhythms, accompanied by piano.

She's jived in Japan, indulged in Italy, feasted in France… and suddenly woken up to find she's now a woman of a certain age. When you have to sit down to put your tights on, it's obviously time to take stock.  So what's the next move, Sarah? “Gay Paree” has been magnifique, but maybe it's time for a change? In this funny and moving account of her globetrotting life so far, Sarah Tullamore is packing her bags, waving Au Revoir and singing brand new songs all about it. Clear away the clutter…

London-Paris-Roam! premiered at La Comédie Nation Theatre, Paris in November 2015. In 2016, after cabaret excerpts at The Toulouse Lautrec Brasserie and The Bedroom Bar in London, Sarah performed a full version at The Rosemary Branch Theatre, London and the renowned Jermyn Street Theatre in London’s West End. The show then ran at the Paris Fringe Festival in May to critical and public acclaim, continuing to the Edinburgh Fringe where it ran for all of August with theSpaceUK, garnering four-star reviews in the process. The show will embark on an international tour in the spring of 2017 which will take it to France, South Africa and England.

London-Paris-Roam! is supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England.

From the pen of Peter Hamilton (Basildon, Bridlington and Playground) comes new play The Poetry of Exile, opening at the White Bear Theatre in March/April 2017. In this new elegiac drama, Chinese transcendental poetry collides with questions of fertility, practicality and wine in Hamilton’s trademark absurdist writing style.

Rob is thirty years old. His wife Lynn wants children, her sister Josie is pursuing her dream of becoming in a vintner in the south of France, and her husband Greg just wants Rob to focus on being a driving instructor – but all Rob wants to do is write poetry. When student Mary-Jane introduces him to the Chinese transcendental poetry of the Tang era, Rob embarks on a journey of self-discovery as his family members slowly unwind their own.

Hamilton is once again joined by director Ken McClymont, former artistic director of the Old Red Lion, who has directed, amongst Hamilton’s previous plays, 45 professional productions all over London, including Sherlock Holmes and The Invisible Thing (Tabard Theatre, 2016) and Bottalack O’Clock (Old Red Lion, 2016).

Peter Hamilton is the Leeds-born writer known for Basildon (White Bear Theatre, 2009) and Bridlington (Rosemary Branch Theatre, 2015). Hamilton’s writing spans decades and has previously explored similar themes of disillusion and mental illness in Switchboard (1997) and The Reappearance of Christ in the East End (2005). Previous credits also include Playground (2015), Skara Brae (2007) and Danelaw (2005).

Philip Ridley’s magnificent, award-winning Dark Vanilla Jungle heads to Theatre N16 in March 2017, produced by Brighton Fringe Award nominated Second Sons. In this dark, 21st century fairytale, a lone actress tells the audience her story.

Andrea keeps getting asked if she’s ashamed. Ashamed of what she did to the soldier. Of what she did to the baby. But Andrea’s not ashamed at all. And she wants to tell you why… A beautiful, breath-taking drama about a young girl’s quest for the perfect family & home revealing a biting commentary on abuses of power in a patriarchal society.

Actress Emily Thornton hails from Bradford, but moved down south to train at Italia Conti, and was recently a finalist of Monologue Slam UK. Her theatre credits include Ruth in Sex with a Stranger at The Pleasance Theatre and The Sanctuary at The Bread and Roses Theatre.

Samson Hawkins is a theatre maker from Northamptonshire who trained as an actor at both East 15 & Italia Conti. After graduating, he formed Second Sons Theatre Company to make “theatre for people who don’t like theatre.” Second Son’s first production, Swan Bake - the story of a drug-addicted ballerina - premiered at Sutton Theatres and was transferred to The Otherplace as part of the Brighton Fringe, where it was nominated for a Brighton Fringe Award for Excellence. 

Samson directed Stephan Golaszewski’s Sex with a Stranger at the Pleasance Theatre in 2017. His other writing work includes Olympic Fencing, which was shortlisted for Soho Theatres Young Writer Award, and Death is Wasted on The Old, which was produced for The Scribble Festival. He is a member of Soho Writers Lab and The Royal Court Writers Group.

PRESS RELEASE

The Fall is a breathtaking one hour visual spectacle which blends theatre with original animations, live music and projection to unfold a story about one man’s struggle with depression and his unusual path to hope. This play is a new adaptation by EmpathEyes, inspired by Tarsem Singh’s 2006 film, also entitled The Fall.  

After a failed suicide attempt, a bedridden man tricks a young girl in the hospital to bring him painkillers with the intention of overdosing. He manipulates her attention by telling vibrant stories about the journeys of 5 heroes (represented by ever-changing animation on a screen behind him). As the young girl becomes attached to these characters, the man finds himself inspired by her goodwill and innocence. Yet he finds his cynicism and dejectedness seeping into his storytelling – the fate of the heroes kept hostage by his increasingly despondent mind-set.

Alongside the show there will be an exhibition on ‘Depression and Hope’ which follows the emotional journey of the play, starting with the beginnings of a mental illness, the experience when in the depths of psychosis and the emergence of hope.

EmpathEyes are a performing arts company that thrives on making work that is raw, honest and has at its core the desire to collaborate with others and fundamentally challenge ourselves and audiences. Their projects stem from the desire to expose and explore the deep crevices of inequality and injustice. They have been drawn to epic stories like One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, The Goat, 1984 and Kafka’s The Trial and have brought these to life on stage by adding their own touch of original live music, animation, and film to the mix. They are deeply inspired by art that makes us question and not sit idle and they beckon their audiences to do the same.

PRESS RELEASE

Scram Collective presents their debut production which asks what an ordinary person would do if given the power to do anything – could they lead a normal life or would they simply be overwhelmed by their abilities? Whimsy is a surreal piece that combines quick dialogue with intense physicality to explore themes of corruption, domestic abuse and generational complacency.

"Sick of your life? I'll give you a life!" Aoife can do anything she wants. She doesn’t clock in for work, or pay for her meals, and instead the world simply does what she asks of it. With infinite power and infinite potential, an innocent person standing in Aoife’s way doesn’t stand a chance.

Scram Collective aim to create new work based on human experience as well as reinventing old favourites with a touch of the surreal, keeping them dark, comic and a little bit unusual. Company co-founder and writer of Whimsy Alex Newport says: “Scram Collective was formed with an attitude of ‘doing it ourselves’ rather than waiting for the phone to ring. While this presents a massive challenge, it also gives a wonderful sense of creative freedom, and we’re so pleased that we can create work for ourselves and other emerging artists. Writing Whimsy has been a terrific experience, mainly due to having such a positive and hard-working team. A team who will be brutally honest on whether a scene works or not, helping to create a piece that is personal, but well-rounded.”

Theatre N16 is a trailblazing theatre company, dedicated to creating a creative hub where new and existing works can be explored and pushed into new realms. Theatre N16 is proud of their commitment to the welfare of creatives, operating under an Equity Fringe Agreement. This promoting and nurturing of talent means that Theatre N16 is a bastion for development within the context of a society in which the arts are increasingly struggling to stay afloat.

Uplifting and thought-provoking, it’s a look at how to become the person you want to be, why you behave the way you do and finding human connection. Sometimes in life you just need a little push in the right direction… sometimes that push can take you to another dimension you couldn’t imagine in your wildest dreams. 

“I’m scared I’m going to blink and I’ll wake up when I’m 60 and die not having done anything. I don’t want to regret anything.” Vines is a magical piece of solo storytelling which takes you on the journey of a young girls self-discovery and finding of her place in the world.

Writer/performer Alex Critolph trained at LAMDA and has worked on BBC’s Doctors, at The Waterloo East Theatre and with SONY. She started writing and producing her own work whilst at The BRIT School under Metal Mouth Productions, with productions including Sinisterrr at The Hen & Chickens and Cockpit Theatre and WASHED for The Brighton Fringe Festival.

The Pensive Federation are proud to present the 6th Significant Other Festival, this year at the Vaults under Waterloo Station, giving them their biggest stage ever. For the sixth time, they will present 10 new 10 minute plays, including a new musical, created in just 10 days.

The Significant Other Festival is an attempt to explore relationships and our connections with the people around us in more detail, and to really celebrate modern relationships. We start with the theme of the significant other: colloquially used as a gender-blind term for a person's partner in an intimate relationship without disclosing or presuming anything about marital status, relationship status, or sexual orientation. We ask 10 writers to create a 10 minute play in 5 days with this theme in mind. We then hand the scripts over to a director and a company of 3 actors and give them 5 days to stage it. Every year we now add a further theme and stimulus, previous themes have included, genre, undercover (which gave us 10 different bed covers) and object of affection. This year our added theme is conditions.

The Pensive Federation are a small theatre company who have a shared aspiration in theatre which reflects people like you, situations you may have faced and reflective of the ordinary world around you. They strive to create accessible work that examines the hopes, fears and dreams that live in all of us; the need for a connection with those around us, the instinct to love and the desire to be loved, to be seen in the world and acknowledged for the person you are and not the labels you wear. 

The Federation are now in their 5th anniversary year of bringing their special brand of collectively devised and created theatre to London – including the Collective Project, the Significant Other Festival and their new Rewritten project, which asks writers to develop new work from an original 5 page script.
