The Conscious Showcase

The Conscious Showcase

To be conscious of our surroundings, ourselves and our community. A time where we enable debate in today’s society, aiming to showcase thought-provoking pieces.


‘Conscious’ - a term that can be open to interpretation, but we aim to point it in the direction of politics, race, identity, social class and self-awareness. To be conscious of our surroundings, ourselves and our community. This showcase will feel relaxed, not as cosmetic but where you as the audience can sit and think about the monologues and their messages. Eight performers bringing forth the light to important issues and how as societies members can change, gain or detach from these perceptions. Come watch on the 22nd of May where you can really listen and engage into important modern day theatre.

Cat on a Hot Tin Roof

Cat on a Hot Tin Roof

Tennessee Williams’ masterpiece, dealing with sexual repression, addiction, and the lies we tell each other and ourselves, is given new life in this unflinching and powerful production.


The scorching sun beats down on a family as they celebrate their patriarch's birthday. All of them are telling lies, especially alcoholic Brick and his desperate wife Maggie. Their emotionally fraught relationship is plagued by secrets and grudges, only exacerbated by the constant family politics. As the lies spiral out of control, and tensions both familial and sexual build, which version of the truth will prevail?

A Midsummer Night’s Dream

A Midsummer Night’s Dream

Britten's opera is inspired by Shakespeare's classic comedy, set in motion by the falling-out of the fairy-king Oberon and their queen, Tytania.


A farce of mistaken identities, befuddled partners, and startling transformations ensues.

Britten's flair for enchanting orchestration and melodic innovation will fascinate and draw you in, from the slipping string chords of the magical wood to the comical pageantry of the rustics' well-intentioned play.

Leaves on the Line

Leaves on the Line

If life is about the journey and not the destination, then the passengers on the 15:00 train from London King’s Cross to Edinburgh Waverley don’t know which way to go.


A new original musical, written and composed by Constance Froment, Evie Press and Imogen Usherwood, previews in Durham ahead of our Edinburgh Fringe run!


Everyone has somewhere to be: a weary office worker, a struggling actor, a teenager who won’t tell anyone where he’s going or why. As the train moves north, a cast of colourful characters open up and discover that they have more in common than they might think. With unexpected delays, irritating announcements and embarrassing moments, this new musical is about the extraordinary lives of ordinary people.

These Bloody Chambers

These Bloody Chambers

Something is coming. Something terrible. Three girls in the woods. Three Stories. This is a tale of unimaginable horrors, of everyday terrors. But who are the monsters? Where is the darkness? How can we find the light? Only one thing is certain No one is coming to save you.


Three girls in the woods. One boy, tied up. Helpless. Roles are reversed. The line between victim and violators are blurred. Over the course of the night the girls tell their tale, based upon Angela Carter’ stories The Erl-King and Wolf Alice in ‘The Bloody Chambers’. The real horror is the failed system, making it all too easy to slip through the cracks, will the characters ultimately find revenge? Will they sink to violence and degradation? Can you really fight fire with fire? Is female solidarity strong enough to keep them afloat in this dangerous storm? No one is coming to save them.

The Lightning Thief

The Lightning Thief

The Greek gods are real, and they're ruining Percy Jackson's life.


After Percy discovers he's the demigod son of Poseidon, he and his friends embark on an epic journey to find Zeus' missing lightning bolt and prevent a war among the gods. To succeed on his quest, Percy will have to do more than catch the real thief, sing songs and prove his innocence. He must solve the riddle of the Oracle, which warns him of betrayal by a friend; fight the monsters on his trail, from Medusa to the Minotaur; and come to terms with the father who abandoned him. Adapted from the best-selling book by Rick Riordan and featuring a thrilling original rock score, this musical is an action-packed mythical adventure that will rock your world - and the underworld.
