Barred is a play that shows the true complexities of life Inside. Performed from an actual prison cell, written by a man who has been to jail himself, this could possibly be the most authentic prison drama ever. Two men, locked up, battling for survival. Danny, believing that art and education can not only affect change, but that it can also help rebuild the shattered relationship with his daughter Holly, pitted against Ali, a staunch believer in doing things the hard way. Head to head in a 12 by 8.

Jay (Celine Abrahams) loves Alex. Alex (Eleonora Fusco) loves Jay. Jay wants a baby, Alex not so much. Andrea (Mari-Ange Ramirez), Jay’s best friend, finds the idea ridiculous too, especially since silences have been the main form of communication, lately. Longlisted by the BBC Writersroom, Jay is a lively comedy about pregnancy, relationships and Prozac Dreams.To find out more, follow the conversation @Prozacdream (Facebook) and on




David Narayan: The Psychic Project

25th & 26th Oct 9.30pm £10/8


A mind-reading show based on the true story of the Cold War’s psychic spies.


In 1972, the Cold War took an unusual turn. The CIA learnt that Russia was investing in mind-control research and achieving some remarkable results.


Not wanting to be left behind, US scientists began a secret project to train civilians as psychic spies: stealing secrets, manipulating memories and finding out if thoughts can kill.


Drawing on 100,000 pages of declassified documents, David Narayan attempts the CIA’s experiments, seeing if a modern audience can use the same techniques.


A show that’s as disturbing as it is astonishing.
