2 Jun, 2015 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm
About the shows:
A black comedy about the forced showdown between a Premier League soccer star’s wife and his mistress. Set in the lavish surroundings of the soccer star’s mansion, while he is away, his wife takes the opportunity to invite a guest over for a drink and a little chat – his mistress. Armed with intimate photos of the mistress and a threat to leak the story to the papers W.A.G. is ready to fight for her marriage to the death.
Over the Top:
Set in a trench somewhere in France, in 1918. It is near the end of the First World War. Jack is an Irishman in the British army who is disillusioned with the reasons why this war is being fought; and is any war worth fighting?
Voices in the Rubble:
A wild, fast moving, absurdist comedy following a couple who have been abandoned by traditional values, and find themselves set adrift in a world obsessed with progress (a society evolving to the point of unravelling). It moves, repeats and develops until finally some narrative tries to bring the piece to a close…
