The Author
Settle back into your seat. Relax as the story unfolds. For you. With you. Of you. A story of hope,violence and exploitation. You’re here…. Joint winner of the 2010 John Whiting Award, and winner of a Total Theatre award for innovation The Author has shocked and amazed audiences the world over since it was first performed in 2009. From protest walkouts to 5star reviews, The Author is controversial, but unforgettable.

The grateful recipient of a heart transplant travels 4000 miles to thank the widow of the donor and to present her with a very special gift. But much more than a life has been lost. England tells a compelling story for our times - a disturbing tale of transactions and translations, of culture and commerce, of one thing being placed inside another without thought for the consequences.

An Oak Tree
A man loses his daughter to a car. Nothing now is what it is. It's like he's in a play - but he doesn't know the words or the moves. The man who was driving the car is a stage hypnotist. Since the accident he's lost the power of suggestion. For the first time since the accident, these two men meet. They meet when the Father volunteers for the Hypnotist's act. And, this time, he really doesn’t know the words or the moves... Winner of a Village Voice Obie for its autumn 2006 Off-Broadway run.

My Arm
At the age of ten, for want of anything more meaningful to do, I put my arm above my head and kept it there. Now thirty years on, I'm so full of meaning it's killing me. My Arm attempts to provoke questions about the qualitative distinctions between viewing theatre and viewing visual art.
