Islander, a devised unplugged musical for two actors, will tour Highlands and Islands this September.
First workshopped at Comar on the beautiful Isle of Mull in March 2017, we are thrilled to have received Creative Scotland funding to make the full show. The piece tells the story of an Islander girl meeting a Biglander boy in a time of conflict, and explores identity – personal, island, and national. Suitable for 7+. More details to follow!
This devised piece had its first work-in-progress showing at the Platform Theatre, Drama Centre, in 2015, originally produced by Sarah Weatherall. We are working with a brilliant team of people and in February went on a research trip to Mexico City.
Princess Charming is a family cabaret about gender stereotypes and identity. It was first developed at Mini VAULT Festival in February 2016 and we now have a fantastic producer, Jessica Cheetham of Spun Glass Theatre. The show had its first full run in September 2017 and our exciting news is that we have just received our Arts Council funding to go on a national tour this Autumn. Watch this space for dates.
These Trees are Made of Blood finished its revival run at the Arcola Theatre in July 2017. Reviews and production shots here. We are hoping to give it future life, following very positive reviews and audience feedback.
The 2017 cast was: Rob Castell, Ros Ford, Ellen O’Grady, Alex Luttley, Neil Kelso, Eilon Morris, Anne-Marie Piazza, Josh Sneesby, Charlotte Worthing
will make 30,000 people disappear before your very eyes.
These Trees are Made of Blood is a brand new piece of political theatre set in a timeless Buenos Aires cabaret club before, during and after Argentina’s Dirty War. Blending original live music and exciting cabaret acts, it tells the story of one mother’s search for her Disappeared daughter and promises to be an unique and memorable live experience.
So come on in. The club’s open all hours and history can always be rewritten after one too many.
