All Over Lovely

All Over Lovely

Two women, ghosts from each other’s pasts, meet before a funeral. One of them maintains defiantly that lipstick and a Porsche is not a betrayal of feminism; the other’s anarchist principles have turned into an organic fruit and vegetable company who supply to Sainsbury’s. A biting dialogue about adolescent sexual awakening, politicised lesbianism and womanhood, 'All Over Lovely' slowly reveals that their childhood turns out to be darker than at first glance...

We'll Have Nun of It

We'll Have Nun of It

An original student written song cycle as part of HBT New Work. 1967 in the East end of London at St Lidwina's School for Girls. We follow four boarding students through their experiences, a look at life growing up in a Convent school. The production is based on real-life stories, encapsulating themes such as Irish immigration, loss, love and sexual awakening. A retrospective glance to a simpler time, four girls journey through adolescence, trying to answer questions that remain on their lips. From defiant teens rebelling against the system to those that are just trying to fit in, We’ll Have Nun of It looks to explore, through song, the highs and lows of their convent experience. A contemporary song cycle which celebrates important changes and tackles the darker side of Convent life; it infuses a melange of styles including electronic, choral and soul.

An original student adaptation of ‘The Yellow Wallpaper’. The show tells the story of a Victorian woman driven to madness by dehumanising and destructive psychological treatment. Her husband and the doctor have agreed she should be confined to her bed in an isolated mansion to overcome her ‘hysteria’ after the birth of her child. She craves intellectual stimulation, activity, and loving understanding. Instead she is ordered to her bedroom to rest and ‘pull herself together’. Here, slowly but surely, the tortuous pattern of the yellow wallpaper winds its way into the recesses of her mind.
