THIS IS THE LAST TIME YOU’RE COOKING THAT, SO HELP ME GOD
Written and Directed by Adrijan Levis.
A quick peek into the lives of two men who are crazy in love– or maybe just crazy. THIS IS THE LAST TIME YOU’RE COOKING THAT, SO HELP ME GOD offers an insight into the goings on of those of us who are young, broke and perhaps a bit too emotional for their own good.
Sunday 20 & 27 March, 7pm
Written and Directed by Liam Borbas.
Just like a worn-out recording of a favourite song, Rupert and Liz’s marriage is experiencing a few bumps and crackles. Although the two have fallen into the same old dull routine, might this be the intervention they needed? Set during a time when dancercise ruled, smoking indoors was standard, and piña coladas flowed; Escape is an original dramedy that manages to toe the line between offbeat and on.
Sunday 27 March & 3 April, 7pm
CIVILITY (and Other Conventionalist Falsehoods)
Written and Directed by Alex Comstock.
Aldous Pennyworth Senior expects the utmost class and politeness from his family. They are not savages, they are first-world citizens, and therefore are to be the textbook example of civilised human beings. But when Aldous’s work dictates that he brings home an unexpected guest, each member of the family must decide what ideals they are truly loyal to. Who are their gods and masters?
Sunday 3 April, 7pm
A NOT SO DARK AND STORMY NIGHT
By EJ McFall. Directed by Poppy Lindsell.
Agatha Grimes and Martha Christie are spending a weekend in a remote cabin in the woods without distractions in order to finish off their respective crime/mystery novels. However, before they even begin to write, there is a loud knock at the door. Little do they know, this won’t be their last interruption of the night. This ridiculous melodrama plays with the classic “campfire story” cliche, keeping the audience guessing at every twist and turn. So much for a peaceful writing retreat.
Sunday 8 May, 7pm
