           WHAT'S ON: NEW SEASON






5 - 9 December, 7.30pm

roken homes, broken lives, the cold blooded hunter thrives. A story of despair and vulnerability, where the truth stares coldly, desperately, but remains unrecognised. This is an indictment of a wayward society, where concern for the individual has been replaced by the collective clamour of greed; what can happen to the child when heads are turned from nurture. Surely this is not what being a civilised can possibly mean. Yet it wears all our footprints.



15 - 17 December, afternoons various times, Age 3 +

Fran is fed up with Christmas. If no one else cares that nothing is the same this year, then why should she? It’s going to take a lot more than fake snow and fake cheer to get her on board. But when an unexpected new friend arrives outside her window, it is up to Fran to get her cheer back, save the day and give everyone a chance for a happy holiday!

The Oppression Olympics by Will Dalrymple

18 - 22 December, 7pm

'A brilliant, tightly crafted piece of writing, full of belly-laughs but with an undercurrent that chills'. (Fringe Review 'Recommended Show')

Milo, Hayley and Alex go about their lives thinking they have it tough. Milo’s neighbour has died, Alex is gay and Hayley is raising a child on her own. What's worse is that no one cares. Then in walks Ruth, a woman who unquestionably has it worse, and they realise why no one cares. Unless your burden becomes your identity, you’re no one. The impact Ruth has on their lives is colossal, building inexorably towards a bitter confrontation over whose life is truly the worst.
