“Leaves Of Glass”
by Philip Ridley
Dir: Garry Thomas
On stage 14th to 16th and 20th to 23rd June
A sharp, complex play about two brothers and the grim hold that their memories have on them. Barry is an artist who works for his older brother Stephen; Stephen is a successful business man with a beautiful wife and house, but absolutely no interest in his wife’s pregnancy. A series of flashback monologues describe the brothers’ father and his suicide, and slowly uncover the depths of their grief and trauma. The characters of the play are haunted by the ghosts of lies that the family has told to keep going and by the pain they have not been able to bury.
NOTE: Contains adult themes and strong/mature language.

"Breath of Spring"
by Peter Coke
On stage 3rd – 6th and 10th – 13th October
Dame Beatrice houses a collection of middle-aged 'guests', plus Lily her maid. To repay Dame Beatrice for giving her a job despite her criminal past, Lily presents her with a mink stole stolen from the next flat. The Brigadier deploys his 'troops' to return the fur. The whole campaign is so invigorating that they decide to retain this excitement in their lives by pinching furs and giving the proceeds to charities.
