|New Writing|

Thrown

by Jodi Gray

As the memories of former patients collide violently with her own, a child psychologist attempts to record what she’s spent her whole life trying to forget.

But as Time loosens it’s grip, and her recording equipment begins to argue back, we hear the inner workings of a mind on the brink of collapse.

With a microphone shaped like the human head and an audience with wireless headphones on, vivid soundscapes and whispered memories wash over the audience as they try to puzzle together the missing pieces of an almost forgotten life.

Echoes

by Neil Smith

An isolated cottage, deep in the English countryside.

 

John makes a surprise visit to his ex-partner Helene, whom he abandoned nine years ago. In his dreams, a young girl has been calling him Daddy, begging him to come and save her... 

 

On arrival, John finds out that Helene is no longer the timid girl she was, and as a storm rages outside, a nine-year-old girl looks on. 

PREVIOUS PRODUCTIONS

 EDFRINGE REVIEW 

"This hypnotic and intimate experience of storytelling was truly compelling and I left wanting to hear more"

 THE SCOTSMAN 

"Thoughtful, at times unsettling, and extremely distinctive piece of sci-fi theatre... a piece that creates a refreshing space for late-night contemplation and stillness"

BRIGHTON AND HOVE NEWS 

"Spellbinding"

 FRINGE GURU 

"I felt tears pricking my eyes...This play composts you. You’ll crumble but be better for it."

A darkly comic story of an elderly couple with a past that refuses to stay buried...

George and Jude seem like your typical elderly couple, gardening and bickering through their winter years. But as they nervously wait for their daughter and granddaughter to arrive, they’re forced to confront the violence and tragedy of their youth.

Reunion is a bittersweet exploration into the power of memory, the lies that bind, and how far we’ll go to justify our past.

Reunion

by Neil Smith

1905. Moscow. Three sisters return to the capital to find it is no longer the peaceful city of their childhoods. 

2011. London. Three siters try to stay afloat in a city on the brink of tearing itself apart. 

Situated around the events leading up to the St. Petersburg massacre and the London riots, After Three Sisters is an intimate and anarchic look into what makes a city and a family turn on itself. 

 FRINGE GURU

"Echoes will definitely stay with you… but when you find yourself on your own on a dark night, you might wish that it didn’t."

After Three Sisters

by Neil Smith. Inspired by Chekhov

Creditors

by Neil Smith. After Strindberg

 LONDON PUB THEATRES 

"This is a strong, challenging play with outstanding performances, funny, tender but with a dark political commentary at its heart."

 A YOUNGER THEATRE

"An extremely interesting take on the coping mechanisms that we acquire in order to handle the harsh reality that all of us will age, and many of us will forget"

An empty hotel in the heart of a conflicted city. People are rioting,  banks are burning, and Adolph's mind is playing tricks on him.

As he anxiously waits for his wife to return, he finds safe haven in the company of Gustav, the only other guest. 

But his new friend may prove even more dangerous than the demons in his own mind.
