She Arrives 30th May 7:30
'She Arrives' is part of a series of projects by Penny Drops Collective that critically confronts the problems of twenty-first century late capitalist life for millennials.

I Know You Of Old 5th June 7:30
Hero is dead.
The funeral only hours away, those strange circumstances of her sudden expiration hang in the air - are the rumours about Hero to be trusted? The beacon-like coffin attracts three lonely souls: fiancé Claudio, wracked with grief and guilt; cousin Beatrice, acid-tongued, hungry for satisfaction; notorious playboy Benedick, burning for the game, smart-phone clasped close. Desperate to atone and do one last thing for Hero, Claudio focusses on his fellow ghouls - he will bring this prickly pair together.
Using only Shakespeare's original text, David Fairs re-orchestrates Much Ado About Nothing into this new, alternative dark comedy - a juicy, messy, intimate farce, presented by Golem Theatre. Benedick and Beatrice are legendary, their intense battles of wit hilarious and sparkling - but slice deeper: is there something rotten at the heart of the Merry War…?
Obsession 10th-13th June 7:30 +(2:30 on 10th)
I have O.C.D. I have O.C.D. have O.C.D. I have O.C.D. I have O.C.D. I have O. O.C.D. I have O.C.D.
The Millennials, a generation known for its privilege and ‘obsessive’ use of technology, are learning about the drawbacks of being constantly out of control. We can monitor privacy settings, but only so far as Facebook or Instagram will allow. We can delete social media, but then risk social obscurity. We can edit a photo, but then berate ourselves for succumbing to the pressures of unattainable beauty. We cannot be in control of one thing without losing control of another. If you then suffer from O.C.D., a condition fuelled by a need to be in control of almost everything in your immediate surroundings- you're going to struggle.Obsessionexamines the mental skirmishing between a need for absolute perfection and the recognition of impossible standards. The text rips through political correctness and enhances our understanding of how O.C.D. can mutate a fragile bond between two people.
Let's Get lost 22nd-24th, 29th-31st July 7:30
In a quiet seaside town, newcomer Alfie finds the mysterious Wez asleep on what turns out to be her older brother's grave. An unlikely friendship between the two propels them towards a series of events that will change their lives forever.
Inspired by JM Barrie's Peter Pan, resident company Exploding Whale Theatre present 'Let's Get Lost;' a modern tale of the rejection of adult life come too soon, and a retreat into the safety of childhood.
“It's just not fun here anymore, and what's the point if it's not fun.”
This is a special event presented by Katzpace's resident company and will take place in the main bier hall of Katzenjammers.
