THREADS

writer: DAVID LANE / director: PAMELA SCHERMANN

11 - 29 Apr 2017

 

It’s been 5 years. Vic’s moved on. Charlie’s a medical mystery. And nothing’s making sense. Held together by their past, torn apart by their present and unsure if there even is a future.

David Lane’s thrilling two-hander explores love, loss and what happens when life goes on, but you can’t.

What would you do if you came across an AIDS orphan in Papua New Guinea? Someone else’s problem? And where is Papua New Guinea anyway?

 

Simon – young, gay, Australian – is an aid worker ready to save the world, from a distance. When he comes across an orphaned baby girl, his world changes. Her mother has just died in childbirth and he may be the baby’s only chance to survive.

 

 

 

BRIMSTONE AND TREACLE by Dennis Potter

2 - 20 May 2017

Award winning director: MATTHEW PARKER

 

“All I want is the England I used to know. The England I remember.

 

I simply want the world to stop just where it is – and go back a bit. ”

 

 

Intense and macabre, prophetic and darkly funny, Dennis Potter’s infamous play Brimstone and Treacle exposes the horror lurking in Middle England minds. Behind floral curtains, Mr and Mrs Bates care for their daughter, left injured and insensible following a car crash. A young visitor with a silver tongue crashes into their lives, but is he their saviour, a thief or the Devil himself?

 

 

 

Snapshot

James is a photographer; he’s very good but makes zero money. His partner, Daniel, is a banker; he’s also very good and makes a lot of money. Frank is retired; he likes James’ work and wants to give him money, only it’s not for his work… What’s the difference between what you’re worth to someone and what you’re worth? What is the true cost of living in the twenty-first century?

 

Snapshot is a challenging and incisive examination of sexuality, fidelity, and our screwed up relationships in this modern world.

Using only Shakespeare’s original text, David Fairs re-orchestrates Much Ado About Nothing into a new, parallel dark comedy: I Know You Of Old.

“I fell in love once. With the wrong woman”

 

This is a love story. A love story set in three different times and three different bedrooms…

 

TORN APART (DISSOLUTION) puts women centre stage and deals with issues such as feminism, immigration, male repression, fate, homosexuality, but above all it explores the most painful aspects of human conditioning.
