This Autumn we began research and development for a new show in collaboration with Leeds based singer/songwriter Rosie Doonan. Supported by Live Theatre and Theatre Royal Plymouth, we spent 3 weeks developing ideas and presenting our work in show-backs held in Live Theatre’s Studio Theatre and Theatre Royal’s Lab. Huge thanks goes out to the two venues for hosting us and of course to ACE for funding the project. We hope to have some dates on the calendar soon to develop the piece further in the new year.

IN A THOUSAND PIECES Tour
We are on tour throughout November-January with our acclaimed production ‘In a Thousand Pieces’ revived for a school’s tour. Visiting 30 schools and colleges across England, we welcome new cast member Shona Cowie (Mobile) who will be joining us as we say goodbye to the wonderful Catriona Giles. Not only will we be performing the show but we will be working with hundreds of students through creative devising theatre workshops to accompany the production. All dates for the tour are now filled, but we are already programming an Autumn 2018 tour to schools of ‘Thirsty’, so get in touch now if you would like to book!
