Christopher

by Sam Morris

A man at work, a child at heart.

 

Christopher is stuck in an endless loop of suppressing his past by damaging his future in this breathtaking one-man physical theatre show.

 

It's not until he looks within that he realises the answer has been there all along - to become the very thing he lost.

This is it. The meeting. It’s happening. Probably the most significant meeting of our lives. So far. Yeah, that’s what I meant: so far. It’s this Friday. And we need to plan. We need to plan it to a TEE so it doesn’t fucking blow up in our faces.

Ayo and Varun are two friends navigating one of the UK’s oldest institutions. For three years they’ve struggled for acceptance and love. They love it, so why can’t it love them back?

The Butterflies of Life is a David and Goliath story about taking a stand, God, and redressing old wounds.

Pauline

by Sophie Bentinck

Pleasance image - Claudia Graham.png

Ever read your grandmother’s suicide note? Sophie has.

Pauline is a funny heart-warming journey of personal-discovery about the grandmother Sophie never knew. Sophie introduces us to her mum, via frank recorded interviews and her grandmother, Pauline through extracts from Pauline's diaries. Pauline is a rare, intimate and salacious glimpse into this family of 3 women spanning 100 years.

PataFlaFla

by RUNT Theatre

It’s 2012 and Janey is taking refuge from David Guetta in the local grunge scene. A mystery unravels when a new girl sits behind the drum kit and Janey returns home with a pair of sticks that change her rhythm forever.

PataFlaFla is a one-woman drum show spectacular exploring loss, friendship and sexuality through music and spoken word. The rushes and drags of teenage life get mixed up with the underground music scene in this queer female answer to Whiplash.

PataFlaFla hands over the drumsticks to the womxn. Hit it.
