Summer season imminent

No sooner have we brought lights down on the Spring Season (massive congratulations to our productions’ cast and crew for their amazing 3 shows), it’s time to kick off our Summer Season, launching on Monday!

No rest, more theatre to create! Join us Monday 15th April at the Hoop & Grapes pub and meet the rest of our merry band, hear from directors and generally have a merry old time.

Carried Away

Want to dip your toe in a nice manageable acting project this Spring?

We’re looking for actors to be in our Full Stack new writing showcase which this year it’s title and theme is: Carried Away.

After over a hundred submissions our team of directors are whittling it down to around fifteen 4-6 minute plays.

By auditioning for Carried Away you get the opportunity to potentially play very different characters, giving yourself an acting challenge and to display your versatility.

It’s also a great way to meet new people or catch up with KDC friends, as our showcase rehearsals are always very sociable and with a large number of people involved, there’s always someone up for a drink!

To find out more about how we audition and what the scripts might be, com along on Monday 15th April, 7pm at the Hoop and Grapes, Farringdon Road.

Maybe Radio

19-23 March. Directed by Anna Markland

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.

Hand to God

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.

Hush Now

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!
