BREAD AND ROSES THEATRE
The Bread & Roses Theatre presents
by debbie tucker green - directed by Tessa Hart
25th April to 13th May
Listening through their thin walls, Amelia and Jason are drawn into the dark and compelling world of their mutual neighbour, Jo. Something very nasty is going on next door. Jason and Amelia know it, but do nothing.
Jason is increasingly addicted to eaves-dropping on Jo's abuse, meanwhile Amelia's frustration with Jo's predicament develops, as she tries to ignore the brutality on the other side of the wall.
Painting a harrowing image of domestic violence in an intimate, yet so distant environment, dirty butterfly confronts the audience with themes of voyeurism, power and guilt through lives that interlock but never connect.

A Curse of Saints
written & directed by Polis Loizou
30 May - 4 June
Cyprus, the late 19th century. A boy is found dead in an olive grove. As the villagers gossip about how he came to be there in the middle of the night, and what might really have killed him, a shepherd reveals his own suspicions. Since the arrival of the British, these blue-eyed 'saviours' come to colonise his motherland, he has been having visions of crooked saints, nightmares of the evil eye. As the omens escalate, along with sightings of an Anatolian gypsy’s ghost, the shepherd knows that death is nigh.

Stones Theatre Company presents
by Phillip Ridley - directed by Olivia Stone
14 - 17 June
The story follows a couple in their late twenties living on a council estate who are expecting a baby and one day receive a letter. It is from the government's Dream Home scheme and they are offered a brand new perfect home, no financial catch, it's theirs - but they must renovate it themselves. Miss Dee, the estate agent, appears offering the couple guidance but is everything as it seems? What is the catch? A darkly humourous play that asks the question: just how far you would go to get on the property ladder...?
In true Stones Theatre-style, we will create a dynamic, modern piece of theatre with relevant themes and bring it to as many audiences as possible.
Thursday 22nd to Saturday 24th June at 7pm & a Saturday matinée at 2.30pm
