Dameon Garnett
 
At seventeen years old, Scott is facing a future that is as uncertain as his past. The death of his adopted mother throws his life into chaos, and now he finds himself having to fit in with a new middle-class family, and the birth-mother he never knew. Class differences soon reach fever pitch, and guilt has the winning hand. Whoever thought change would be this difficult, and what is Scott hiding under the bed?

1984

George Orwell (adapted by Matthew Dunster)
 
Winston Smith rewrites history for the Ministry of Truth, but when he's handed a note that says simply 'I love you' by a woman he hardly knows, he decides to risk everything in a search for the real truth. In a world where cheap entertainment keeps the proles ignorant but content, where a war without end is always fought and the government is always watching, can Winston possibly hold onto what he feels inside? Or will he renounce everything, accept the Party's reality and learn to love Big Brother? 

This is a sensual and sinister adaptation of George Orwell's classic.

2401 Objects

Analogue Performance Company
 

In 2009 Patient H.M.’s brain is dissected live on the internet to a global audience of 400,000 people, cut into carefully preserved slices: manuscripts of tissue like the pages of a book.

In 1953 Henry Molaison emerges from experimental brain surgery without any recollection of the last two years of his life or the ability to form new memories.

In 1935 nine-year old Henry is knocked over by a bike, leaving him unconscious for five minutes. Following Analogue's critically acclaimed Mile End and Beachy Head and inspired by the world’s most important neuroscientific case-study, 2401 Objects tells the remarkable story of a man who could no longer remember, but who has proven impossible to forget.

A GAMBLER'S GUIDE TO DYING

Gary McNair
 

What are the odds of living an extraordinary life?

This is the story of one boy’s granddad who won a fortune betting on the 1966 World Cup and, when diagnosed with cancer, gambled it all on living to see the year 2000. An intergenerational tale of what we live for and what we leave behind.

'Gary McNair’s monologue A Gambler’s Guide to Dying  is a tribute to his grandfather that blends a nostalgic warmth and a few good chuckles with some smart stuff about the nature of storytelling...a beautiful and entertaining tribute.'  Time Out

A Mad World My Masters

Thomas Middleton (ed. Phil Porter and Sean Foley)
 
London, Soho ... 1956. Where glamour rubs up against filth, and likes it, where the posh mix with musicians, whores and racketeers; where 'virginity is no city trade', and where a dashingly impecunious bachelor in need of quick cash and a good time has to live on his wits.

Tuning conman to fool his rich uncle, he variously becomes a Lord, a high-class call girl and - God forbid - a poor actor. But a beautiful Soho tart is also on the scam: a whore to some, a religious instructor to others, and a debutante in need of an eligible bachelor to yet more ...

A Marvellous Year for Plums

Hugh Whitemore
 

Britain in 1956: the Suez Crisis.

Prime Minister Anthony Eden, described by a colleague as ‘half mad baronet and half beautiful woman’, is faced with the terrible possibility of leading his country into war. His health is collapsing. His friends, colleagues and opponents, among them Hugh Gaitskell and Ian Fleming and his wife Ann, are facing crises of their own, crises of conscience and crises of the heart. Hugh Whitemore’s new play is a true epic: a suspenseful thriller, an achingly romantic love story and a fascinating examination of a flashpoint in our history which still resonates today. What is the cost of an ‘illegal’ war?

Review
'A clever mix of high politics, private deception and a sprinkling of household names from Ian Fleming to John Prescott. A mixture too of humour and pathos and the feeling of sympathy with the characters at the same time as wanting to castigate them for having ‘made their own beds’.  The Public Reviews

A Pacifist's Guide to the War on Cancer

Brian Lobel/Bryony Kimmings/Tom Parkinson
 

Bryony Kimmings wants to talk about cancer but she's not getting very far. Instead, she keeps hearing about battles, survivors, fun runs and new leases of life. What's everyone so scared of?

In this all-singing, all-dancing celebration of ordinary life and death, single mum Emma confronts the highs and lows of life with a cancer diagnosis; that of her son and of the real people she encounters in the daily hospital grind.

The Pacifist’s Guide to the War on Cancer is a funny and moving show about newfound friendships, pain and death, mundane treatment cycles, hairlessness and scars...

Kimmings is famous for her unique takes on taboo topics—from her sexual health ( Sex Idiot), to her boyfriend’s depression ( Fake It ’Til You Make It), to her search for positive role mo dels for her teenage niece ( Credible Likeable Superstar Role Model).

A Soldier in Every Son: The Rise of the Aztecs

Luis Mario Moncada (translated by Gary Owen)
 

Late 14th century in the Valley of Mexico and a small, unknown tribe called the Aztecs propel themselves from nomadic mercenaries to rulers of a great empire. Passion, power and intrigue play out in this epic political thriller which charts the history of an ancient civilisation.

Spanning a century and based on true events chronicled in the Aztec codices, A Soldier In Every Son – The Rise of the Aztecs is closely inspired by Shakespeare's history plays.

Adler & Gibb

Tim Crouch
 
' You’d like that, would you, your most private, pinkest, tenderest – small bird, small bird, small fragile – stolen from you, slammed down onto the slab, the block, poked at and paraded.’

The children swing their legs on the chairs. The student delivers the presentation. The older woman stands with the gun. The young couple arrives at the house. The house is returning to nature. A movie is being made. The truth is being plundered. But the house is still lived in and the spirit to resist is strong.

Janet Adler and Margaret Gibb were conceptual artists working in New York at the end of the last century. They were described by art critic Dave Hickey as the ‘ most ferociously uncompromising voice of their generation’. With Adler’s death in 2004, however, the compromise began.

Adler & Gibb tells the story of a raid – on a house, a life, a reality and a legacy. The play takes Tim Crouch’s fascination with form and marries it to a thrilling story of misappropriation.

Rodney Ackland
 

Hampstead, 1936. In a shabby basement flat, aspiring playwright Clive Monkhams dreams of a West End hit and winning Francie’s heart.

With opening night approaching and finances fast running out, everything rides on the success of the play and, for Clive, the future looks all too glittering…
