Written & Directed by Jez Bond & Mark Cameron

An isolated manor, a storm brewing and a stranger at the door. The clichés flow as freely as the suspicious liquor in the library, but the real mystery is which celebrity will walk through the door! Production supported by Park Theatre’s Producers’ Circle.

THE TIME OF OUR LIES

30 Jul – 10 Aug

Written by Bianca Bagatourian

The Time Of Our Lies unfolds through the personal history of social activist Howard Zinn, including being a soldier who dropped bombs on Rouen, France in WWII. This fateful moment stayed with him and led to Zinn becoming a moral compass for the US.

The play features songs using Zinn’s words combined with first-person accounts from other soldiers. It’s a battle cry for democracy.

Beezer and O’Rourke live on the fringes of society in a dingy London flat, struggling to make ends meet. Despite living life at the bottom of the heap, the savage banter of their dysfunctional friendship keeps the pair afloat.

O’Hare’s first black comedy-drama in our 2019 season shines a light on complicity and the intriguing web of secrets and lies woven behind closed doors. Production supported by Park Theatre’s Producers’ Circle.

Acerbic humour from O’Hare coupled with the inimitable Miriam Margolyes make Sydney & The Old Girl a production not to be missed. Production supported byPark Theatre’s Producers’ Circle.

WARHEADS

15 Aug – 7 Sep

Written by Taz Skylar & RosBerkeley Simpson
With spoken word by Suli Breaks

Directed by Toby Clarke 

Upon return from his first tour of Afghanistan, 19 year old Miles isn’t quite himself. Noises don’t sound the same. People don’t look the same. Pizza doesn’t taste the same.

The harder he tries to act normal, the harder it gets to be normal. And all his loved ones’ attempts to help make things worse.

Warheads is a punchy urban drama based on a true story.

BLACK CHIFFON


18 Sep – 12 Oct

Written by Lesley Storm

Directed by Clive Brill

Mrs Alicia Christie maintains a beautiful home, with a clever husband and devoted children. This surely makes her an upstanding society woman…

What would you do to protect your family? Would you lie? Would you pretend to be a completely different person to the one everyone knows? Would you forsake all your beliefs? Would you go to jail?

One woman. One crime. One decision.

FAST

15 Oct – 9 Nov

Written by Kate Barton
Directed by Kate Valentine
Cast includes Caroline Lawrie

In a chilling parallel to our modern world of influencers peddling protein shakes and diet pills, Fast is the true story of ‘Dr’ Linda Hazzard who advocated a fasting cure that gripped the press and divided a nation.

Complex, beguiling and utterly driven, was Hazzard vilified as a woman in a man’s world or were there darker forces at play?

Written by Olivia Olsen

Directed by Robin Herford

Russia. 1940. Anna Akhmatova, the most celebrated poet of her generation, has lost her husband to the purges and her son to state prison where he awaits execution.

MARTHA, JOSIE AND THE CHINESE ELVIS

11 Dec – 4 Jan

Written by Charlotte Jones
Directed by Robert Wolstenholme

Josie’s tired. Tired of looking after daydreaming daughter Brenda. Tired of working as a dominatrix to make ends meet. Too tired to celebrate turning forty.

Hilarious and heartfelt, with a rocking Elvis soundtrack, Charlotte Jones’ quirky, kinky comedy celebrates life’s outsiders; sweet yet saucy, it’s the perfect ‘adults only’ alternative Christmas treat.
