Pomona by Alistair McDowell
Directed by Tom Cunningham
Ollie has come to Manchester to look for her missing twin sister. There, she finds out about the mysterious place Pomona – a seemingly abandoned space in the centre of the city. What dark secrets is Pomona hiding? This dark play blends elements of horror, sci-fi and tabletop RPGs into a brilliantly written story that explores the claustrophobia and extremes of modern city life.
Rules for Living by Sam Holcroft
Directed by Duncan Moore
It starts out simple and descends into madness…. Christmas wouldn’t be Christmas without sprouts, presents, a game or two and a good old family argument. And this is what you get in Sam Holcroft’s brilliantly funny comedy, Rules for Living.
Sibling rivalries, suppressed resentments, jealousy and secrets are just some of the things that must remain hidden as a family gets together for Christmas.
And also, our devised project:
Snatch & Merkin
Directed by Anna Markland & Dean Reilly
Funny. Futuristic. Feminist. Film Noir.
These are the building blocks that the cast & creatives will use to write a new piece via a playful process combining improvisation and devising techniques. We will focus on exploring the core themes of the work (technologically advanced sex toys, 21st century villains, GenZ feminism), and combining their elements into a dark comedy.
