A new musical by Dougal Irvine
Inspired by The Beggar’s Opera by John Gay

for London’s Newest Off West End Musical
“A crack ensemble… Dangerously funny.”
Baz Bamigboye, Daily Mail
___London 2012. The world is watching. Can the city deliver the greatest Olympics ever? Pulling the strings is media mogul, broadcaster and puppet master, Jeremiah Peachum. Together with his star of the show, Lockitt, the Mayor of London, they are perfectly placed to capitalise on Team GB’s gold and drive their political agenda across the finish line.

Enter satirical street busker Macheath and his gang of dissenters ‘The Ninety Nine Percenters’. They’re the talk of the town – out to take the fat cats down – and it’s working! But this time Mac may have bitten off more than he can chew… Fresh from the pen of one of the hottest writers emerging in UK theatre, Dougal Irvine.

Expect a reckless abandon of political correctness and some top class tunes to redefine a golden age.
Cast includes: David Burt, Natasha Cottriall, Ishmael Gander, Simon Kane, George Maguire, John McCrea, Maimuna Memon, Giovanna Ryan and Lauren Samuels.

The Quiet House

By Gareth Farr

“It’s passing on your thoughts, your personality, a part of yourself, your DNA. If we don’t do that, what are we? We’re just dust”.

Jess and Dylan are in love. They want a family. That’s all they have ever wanted.

This ordinary couple find themselves on an extraordinary journey when they enter the world of IVF. Forced to fight for the family they so desperately want, they put their faith in science and their relationship through the ultimate test.

A funny, moving and unswervingly honest love story, don’t miss the first London outing for this brilliant and bold award winning writer. Gareth Farr’s blistering new play follows his Bruntwood Prize-winning debut, Britannia Waves the Rules. The Quiet House is directed by Birmingham REP’s Associate Director Tessa Walker.

‘This is a play about anyone who has focused so fiercely on the notion of hope and clung to it so tightly that it either breaks or it hardens and becomes a tangible thing’
Writer Gareth Farr

In association with The London Women’s Clinic.

Supported by a Wellcome Trust People Award, the Arts Council England and the London Women’s Clinic.

Alongside the production is a special event Fertility Fest. For more information go tofertilityfest.com

ABSOLUTION/BILL CLINTON HERCULES – DOUBLE BILL

ABSOLUTION

written & performed by Owen O’Neill

Directed by Guy Masterson ( with original direction by Rachel O’Riordan)

Donegal. Present Day. Catholic priests are disappearing. One man knows why and he wants to confess. His confession is brutal. It is bloody. It is frank. He tells us it is not murder. It’s retribution. It’s absolution.  A five-star, sell-out hit at the 2008 Edinburgh Festival.

“Meticulous. Muscular. Captivating. Rich. Thrilling. Compelling… Nothing could rival what I’d just seen. Nothing did.”
The Spectator, Edinburgh 2008

BILL CLINTON HERCULES

by Rachel Mariner

Performed by Bob Paisley
Directed by Guy Masterson

With the world ravaged by war, drowning refugees, mass migration, jobless, homeless, hopeless, with inequality and injustice at its worst for a century, the 42nd President wants to cut loose, shoot from the hip, and waken the world in his own fantasy TED talk.   His epic life has led to this moment… but will he be silenced by his spouse’s political ambitions? Will he be a foot-solider for Hillary or will the comeback kid come back?

“Smart, funny, moving, exceptionally current, it is fantastically written with a most Bill-thentic performance from Bob Paisley!”
Broadway Baby, Edinburgh 2014
