By Sophocles
Translated by Robert Bagg
Directed by Alastair Clark
Conflict has infected Thebes. A civil war marred by foreign intervention has devastated the city. Kreon, brother-in-law of the infamous Oedipus, assumes power in order to resist anarchy and restore peace. He demands that the body of the traitor Polyneikes is to be left unburied. A single voice – resolute and female – says ‘no’.

By Franz Schubert
Adapted by Heather Fairbairn & Krystal Sweedman
Directed by Heather Fairbairn
Through fragmented memories and dreams, an ageing poet recounts the mistakes of his youth. As a young man, he abandons his fiancée to venture into the winter’s night, driven by the fear that she has been unfaithful. In his isolation, he is plagued by hallucinations of his beloved traversing the icy landscape in search of him.

By Falk Richter
Translated by David Tushingham
Directed by Jessica Arthur
Intimacy is dead. Rausch is an exploration of the intoxication of emotions and how modern society is out of touch. We are losing the meaning of words, the meaning of touch and the meaning of reality.


Little Bitch
By Katie Cawthorne, Laura Lethlean and Debra Thomas
Directed by Katie Cawthorne
A pack of teenagers inhabit a blunt and unsettling environment, where every move is analysed and compared to an expectation. One pack member is labelled and judged until they’re completely isolated. What does it mean if you’re a little bitch? What does it mean if you’re a dog? What does it mean if you’re a hoe, skank, mole, bush pig…girl? Can you choose not to be?

The Death of Abel
A film by David Burrowes
Directed by David Burrowes
Since the beginning of time man has killed man. On a night that’s been a long time coming, estranged brothers Cain and Abel meet to mourn the death of their father, share a glass of whiskey and settle a score that dates back an eternity.

Le Portrait de Dorian Gray
By Oscar Wilde
Adapted by Stephen Sewell
Directed by Zebastian Hunter
This adaptation of Dorian Gray picks up the story after the suicide of Sibyl Vane, whom Dorian callously casts aside when his infatuation with her evaporates. Abandoning himself to hedonism under the decadent philosophy that ‘Truth is beauty, and beauty truth’, his life becomes increasingly unhinged and corrupt.

Adapted by Samantha Young from Erisycthon and Mestra by Tom Wright
Directed by Samantha Young
‘The king, in sleep, in imagination, dreamt of feasts, closed his mouth on vacancy,
Exercised his gluttony on insubstantial food,
And fruitlessly ate the empty air.
All nourishment becomes a reason for nourishment
And always by eating, he creates an empty void.’
