It’s been a hell of a 12 months for Devious Theatre. This time last year we were prepping for 3 plays. We did 4. Then did a play within a play, that kinda makes five. Plus collectively our core bunch of awesome thespians dipped their toes in and out of the water with other companies […]

Amy Dunne plays Sue in A Gaggle Of Saints. Here she talks about the challenges of a duologue and her love of LaBute. I had always hoped Devious would to a Neil LaBute play. I read The Shape of Things about seven years ago and so began my love for this playwright. I made it […]
