My Mother Said I Never Should

My Mother Said I Never Should

A poignant tale of growing up, growing old and growing (or not) wise. Following the stories of grandmothers, mothers and daughters, we see how it takes generations to learn about the true value of real feeling.


Using a kaleidoscopic time structure, Keatley’s play is a heart wrenching, bittersweet story about love, jealousy, and the price of freedom. Spanning over a period of over eighty years, the play examines the lives of four generations of women from one family. Set in Manchester, Oldham and London, the story explores how Doris, Margaret, Jackie and Roise must make difficult choices as they confront the most significant moments of their lives, all set against the backdrop of the chaotic and ever-changing twentieth century.

Itchy and Scratchy

Itchy and Scratchy

Scratch night showcasing some of Durham's best new student writing, with a mix of short plays and comedy sketches


Buttered Toast is back with not one, but TWO scratch nights in a single evening! That's right, two for the price of one. The first half of the evening will feature a handful of monologues and one-act dramas, written by some of Durham's best up and coming writing talent, fully rehearsed and performed by a troupe of actors. Afterwards, these actors will perform a series of comedy sketches, script-in-hand, as a fun way to round off the evening. Come along for a fun night of experimentation – maybe you’ll get a glimpse of the next Fleabag!

Foundations

Foundations

Are we becoming machines? Are machines becoming too much like us? Or is there another possibility? Foundations is a play about technology, perspective, and love, involving physical theatre and puppetry.


"A factory above. A factory below. And between them, the unused foundations of a whole neighbourhood, rotting in the ground like concrete graves.


Meet MJ, an ordinary warehouse worker from the world above. Now meet Pins, an ordinary worker from the factory below, except that she’s a robot, and has never known what we think of as human.


They’re about to meet, and set a spark that could unravel worlds. If you listen closely, you might be able to start hearing the pounding from under the floor. And if you listen closer, you might notice that it begins to sound a lot like your heartbeat."
