BRITISH by John Whyte

One man fleeing from a country torn apart by war, one man living in a world surrounded by change and one man angry at the reality he won't face. Dominating the headlines of 2016 is the topic of immigration, should Britain feel compelled to help the crisis or can it turn a blind eye? This  play shows three different sides of the immigration debate; the refugee, the working class man, and a member of high society. The play highlights the realities that aren’t covered enough in the daily news cycle and asks the question; what is it to be British?

JOY DIVISION - The Nazi Sex Slave story

Warning: Contains text of a sensitive nature.

 In the 70s and early 80s, the well-known Manchester band, Joy Division, took their name from events had nothing to do with joy. The name comes from forced labour camps in Nazi Germany. In these camps, thousands of young women, Polish Catholic mostly were used as sex slaves for German officers before they went to fight on the Russian front. They were also used by German guards in a odd logic that by providing a pretty women, it would stop the male camp gaurds having any sexual urges towards the male Jewish and homosexual inmates. Many of these girls shared the same hatred of the Jews as the Nazi's, as they saw them as just having to wait on tables or just clean, not knowing what was really happening in other camps.

These young girls, known as ‘Feld Hure’ (Field Whores), underwent daily ‘enjoyment duty’ where three bad reports were met with brutal levels of punishment. The question is, in such dire circumstances, do humans take solace in the companionship of others suffering the same fate? Or does an individual’s supposed submission give them greater dominance and a longer shelf life? We then see the same girls in a brothel today

Être et avoir

Charting the events within a small single-class village school over the course of one academic year, Etre et Avoir takes a warm and serene look at primary education in the French heartlands. A dozen youngsters, aged 4-10, are brought together in a rural classroom and taught every subject by a single teacher. A master of quiet authority, he patiently navigates the children towards adolescence, cooling down their arguments and listening to their problems with extraordinary dedication. Soon, however, he will have to say goodbye to those older students, who are now ready to go onto the state school in the local town.

CLUB CLASS - The Hit Aviation Comedy

This hit comedy has toured over 180 UK theatres in the last 12 years and returns after its last sell out production here.   Written by a former airline pilot and 'Jongluers' headline comic, we see a cast of five dress as cabin crew yet playing everyone from pilots to passengers, baggage handlers to bits of the Airbus A320 on this comedy flight from hell (Luton to The Algarve).  Set to the music of STEPS or THIN LIZZY depending on what crew is roistered to work that flight.

Contains adult humour and a uber realistic flight simulation scene based on a real training exercise the writer failed (btw he has crashed 3 times in real life, once nearly killing a member of the Royal family at RAF NORTHHOLT.  To balance the play there is also a very unrealistic sex scene in the loos at 35000ft bit.

Feel free to come dressed as cabin crew, passengers or pilots.

Voted as one of the best new plays in 2005 by a national newspaper

Performed  and staged following the rules Brecht style for theatre purist /  highly camp and silly comedy for the rest of us.

THE GOOD PERSON OF SZECHWAN

by Bertolt Brecht    (translated and adapted by Larissa Turkina)

Written during the Second World War, The Good Person of Szechwan exudes Brecht’s forthright and unhinged style of theatre. The play follows the young prostitute, Shen Teh, on her mission to remain good according to the rules set forth by the gods. But the good citizens of Szechwan take advantage of Shen Teh’s goodness, and to defend her livelihood, Shen Teh must assume the cold and unwavering male alter ego, Shui Ta.
