Once again it’s time to get your pens out (well, laptops I suppose) and get creative for our summer show “Carried Away”. We’re looking for very short scripts to produce for a week performance in July, so if you’ve always wanted to get into writing, or want a new challenge, this is for you!
Big thanks to everyone who auditioned! We are very happy to announce our casts for this season, congratulations to all of these humans:

Moscow’s number hit music station is launching their annual phone-in charity fundraiser … or at least they would be, if their biggest rivals hadn’t already stolen their theme. Join the DJs and station management as they try to save the day whilst dealing with endangered animals, suspicious pies, the Russian navy, office romance and of course – the best musical acts. After all, this is – Maybe Radio.

26-30 March. Directed by Duncan Moore
All hell breaks loose in a small Texan town in this blood-dark comedy. Recently widowed Margery runs a Christian Puppet Ministry at the local church. Soon Jason, her son, discovers that his puppet’s gone rogue and has taken on a shocking personality all of its own. This lightning-paced comedy tackles the big themes of death, grief, depression, guilt and religious hypocrisy, with a little help from one foul-mouthed puppet.
2-6 April. Directed by Danielle Florence & Carl Fletcher
Hush Now is a semi-devised piece utilising physical theatre and puppetry to tell the story of a family fractured by grief. The play centres around a teenager haunted by his own guilt. He navigates the world in a new way since his father was taken from him, but as the pain he feels festers and grows, so does the monster that begins to torment him…
Auditions 14, 15, 16 January!
