Meet Leah and Chris; raised on Harry Potter, New Labour and a belief that one day they would be as ‘special’ as their parents promised. But what happens when those dreams don’t become reality? All We Ever Wanted Was Everything is a three-act anthem set across three decades, from 1997’s Cool Britannia to 2007’s Broken Britain and 2017’s Brexit Britain. It’s about the world we inherited and the one we’re leaving behind. It’s a gig that tells a story of a million beating hearts and an asteroid with other plans.

As thousands have been tortured, jailed, maimed or killed by the Syrian regime, The Fear of Breathing is not only a new play based entirely on verbatim reports from inside Syria itself, but is also a hard-hitting evocation of a life or death fight for freedom, experienced from the inside. To uncover these personal stories from the uprising, award-winning journalists Paul Wood and Ruth Sherlock, together with theatre director Zoe Lafferty, travelled into Syria covertly, circumventing the ban on journalists and restrictions on movement for all non-Syrians. They spoke to protesters as well as citizens who love President Bashar al-Assad and are terrified of a future without him.Featuring verbatim scenes, interviews, stories and film footage, The Fear of Breathing is a powerful and profoundly disturbing portrait of a revolution struggling to survive.

‘If I died tomorrow, I would have died having done nothing. So I made a promise there and then that we would live tonight like it was our last’ He’s been let down, belittled and ignored but tonight none of that matters – it’s Friday and Joe is getting smashed. Kirsty has bought some vodka on the way home from school and is hastily shaving her legs with her friend’s dad’s razor. As bottles are drained and the sun sets the two hit the town, neither aware that soon their lives will irreconcilably collide. Chapel Street is the debut play from one of the UK’s most exciting new writers, Luke Barnes. Crackling with energy and dripping with humour it is an acerbic yet compassionate portrait of good times gone bad for a betrayed generation, which carries a pertinence in the wake of David Cameron addressing ‘Broken Britain’.

From a playwright rated by Alan Ayckbourn and Howard Barker to be the most exciting new voice in British theatre comes a shattering re-imagining of life as we live it now, set in the context of a bloody revolution. Witness to a brutal political assassination, we are introduced to a society fractured by a lack of belief in anything meaningful, in which everyone has something to protest against. This skewed world spins giddily between the surreal, the mundane and a ghastly graphic reality. Powerful poetic language, raw emotion, dark humour and big uncomfortable ideas build a fast moving story of ‘quite shattering impact’ (The Guardian). The Error of Their Ways received its world premiere at the HERE Center, NYC in August 2007.

The 56 ‘Nobody dies in football matches in fires. It doesn’t happen.’ At 3.40pm on 11th May 1985, a small fire broke out in the main stand at Valley Parade football ground during the last game of the season. Within four minutes, the wooden structure was ablaze. Adapted solely from over sixty real-life testimonies, this pertinent piece of documentary theatre pays homage to the supporters who lost their lives in one of the darkest days in British footballing history. The 56 examines the solidarity, strength and community in the face of overwhelming tragedy. E15 ‘We want social housing, not social cleansing.’br> Facing skyrocketing rent and forced relocation out of London, twenty-nine single mothers united to confront Newham Council’s gentrification of their hometown. From the streets of Newham to the Houses of Parliament, this bold piece of documentary theatre is adapted from the real-life testimonies of the most under-represented and prominent voices on the political spectrum – providing a truthful retelling of the Focus E15 Campaign, Britain’s housing crisis and how one group of women refused to be marginalized. This is the beginning of the end of the housing crisis.

‘The patients like to look at the paintings. It helps them to feel better about their illnesses.’ The grateful recipient of a heart transplant travels 4000 miles to thank the widow of the donor and to present her with a very special gift. But much more than a life has been lost. Written and performed in art galleries, ENGLAND tells a compelling story for our times - a disturbing tale of transactions and translations, of culture and commerce, of one thing being placed inside another without thought for the consequences. Presented by two guides, it is a tour to the end of the world. ENGLAND was first performed at the Fruitmarket Gallery, Edinburgh, in August 2007. 'Tim Crouch, Britain’s best mannered theatrical subversive, is at it again.ENGLAND cunningly lures the audience into examining the unspoken advantages of its position in the world and the way in which courtesy and cultural refinement can be a convenient cover for exploitation. This is a compact piece, but once again Crouch has shown that small-scale originality can provoke large-scale conversations.' LA Times

I’ve got a new law for you mate, it’s called survival of the fittest, it’s called fuck you we’re the Riot Club. In an oak-panelled room in Oxford, ten young bloods with cut-glass vowels and deep pockets are meeting, intent on restoring their right to rule. Members of an elite student dining society, the boys are bunkering down for a wild night of debauchery, decadence and bloody good wine. But this isn’t the last huzzah: they’re planning a takeover. Welcome to the Riot Club. Laura Wade's depiction of wealth and privilege is savagely funny - Time Out London Disgracefully entertaining... there is much fun to be had at the expense of these posh characters as they bicker, get wasted and lament the awfulness of the working classes. **** – The Telegraph Wade deftly skewers the sense of entitlement that swirls like a sickly perfume around a certain kind of upper-class thug. Her characters seem to have everything, yet whinge relentlessly... Posh combines twisted humour with ripe excess and a cruelly precise topicality. For many it will leave a bitter taste in the mouth. But, as the characters say with lip-smacking approval, it’s savage. **** –London Evening Standard Wade has grasped a fundamental truth about British life... Her chief target is not just privileged toffs but the cosy network that really runs Britain... But, while Wade's play reminds us that many of the upper-class continue to enjoy the sound of broken glass, its success lies in harpooning the way power operates through a succession of nods and winks in our supposedly open, egalitarian society. **** –The Guardian
