‘I put heavy things on my audiences. I love it.’ Neil LaBute, February 2011. And that’s probably why we love Neil LaBute. He was one of the writers who was on our mind when we formed the company in 2006. We would sit outside the Marble City Tea Rooms (and then the Coffee Club when […]

The curtain comes down tonight on Can’t Pay? Won’t Pay! The hard thing about local theatre is that you pour your heart and soul into the production and must come to a close after five nights. Sure enough, we’d be delighted to go on another week or more, or take the production on the road, […]

Tools For Theatre Companies: A Forum

We’re approaching three years together as a theatre company. Three years of meetings, chats, planning, finance, funding, arguments, resolving arguments, advertising, pimping (of shows, not cast members), tea drinking, writing, scripting, lighting, directing… We’re often asked how we do it.
