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.
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…
KDC’s summer show is the return of last summer’s new writing success, What Keeps Me Awake, with the same format and a new theme.
Until the end of March 2018, writers from across the globe are submitting short plays written for KDC. Writers have only two words to guide them, the title: Future Imperfect. Last year over 130 plays were submitted. From these, 5 directors chose the best 12.
Rehearsals will be mainly but not exclusively on Monday and Wednesday evenings, and Sunday afternoons. Rehearsal venues are in central London, often at the Hoop and Grapes pub (80 Farringdon St, EC4A 4BL) and Theatre Delicatessen (2 Finsbury Avenue, EC2M 2PA).
