Give Us a Kiss and Show Us Your Knickers - M1,F2

Glamorgan - M2,F2

One of the eccentric Pendragon plays, this darkly poetic drama tells of Jane Lamb's heritage of passion and madness through three generations. Owen Pendragon, the angry last Lord of Pendragon Castle, who has already buried three young wives, arouses first the pity and then the love of a beautiful servant girl. She dies giving birth to Mary, his child. Mary is mad and she burns the castle with Owen in it before fleeing to American with her schoolmaster, Zachary Lamb. The ghosts of Mary's parents haunt her; the madness returns and, in a series of breathtaking lurches through time and space, the play moves to a horrifying conclusion. The story is told as an intricately interwoven and highly theatrical nightmare that pulls you into a passionate, sardonic and darkly beautiful world

Major Weir - M1,F1

This supernatural play takes place in a famous haunted house: the former home of Major Weir and his demented sister who were executed in Scotland in 1670 for devil worship. Here the Major must relive his story each night while his mad sister spins at her wheel and plays with her doll. This play will cast a spell on all who see it

Horrified and fascinated, he is drawn into her grim world as they struggle for understanding in the midst of a nightmare landscape

Squirrels - F1

In this demented monologue a young woman gives birth to hundreds of squirrels. She relates the difficulties of trying to name and keep track of them, the traumatic effect they have on her cat, and her mixed feelings about their sudden departure for the woods. Wildly funny, this play about the mystery of creation is unlike anything you have ever seen
