What's On

 

 

 

 

THE MOOR by Catherine Lucie

Tuesday 6 February - Saturday 3 March

 

 

Bronagh has lived right at the heart of the moor for as long as she can remember. But recently she has started having the same dream over and over again - with the voices and the whispering. Is it trying to tell her something?

 

When a boy vanishes, Bronagh has to tell someone what she suspects, entangling herself and her boyfriend in a murder investigation. But how can anyone find the truth when the ground keeps shifting?

 

The Moor is a tense psychological thriller, part domestic drama, part folk tale, that pits Bronagh against her own past and present, dragging her, her baby daughter and those closest to them into something deeper than the marsh on the moor.

 

 

 

SHANTER  by Masie Brooker

Directed by Joshua Elliott

Monday 12th - Saturday 24th March

 

LADS. LADS. LADS.

 

Have you ever taken banter too far? Berty, Amber, Hamish and Sam are childhood friends whose lives have taken different directions. They reunite for one big festival p**s-up when an unexpected guest arrives and burns a hole in their weekend plans.

 

Shanter is a dark comedy about the dangers of “Lad Banter” and how it can affect friend groups in a pressurized environment. This play will give you an insight into youth culture today and how vulnerable young people really are.

 

Top of The Hill Productions is an emerging company focusing on new and exciting work that tackles issues that are prevalent but rarely addressed in todays society.

 

 

PLASTIC by Kenneth Emson

Directed by Josh Roche

Tuesday 3rd - Saturday 21st April 2018

 

TODAY’S THE DAY

YES IT IS

REEBOK CLASSIC OF A DAY TODAY

YES.

IT.

IS.

 

Remember the moment you became an adult? Or did you miss it?

Kev used to have a girlfriend called Lisa, she wore a fitted blazer and reebok classics, lit up the school yard. Kev used to be the captain of the school football team. Scored the winner in the All-Essex schools cup final.

Ben used to get beaten up most days. He stole money from his mum’s purse to pay off ‘Wicksy’. Now he’s an accountant. But Ben always had Jack. His loyal, unbreakable mate Jack.

Adults are the kids that survive school right?

And what if some kids don’t?
