A comic operetta, following the fortunes of Frederic, a young pirate, as he comes to the end of his apprenticeship and falls in love, but is he really as free as he thinks?
It is assumed he will marry his ex-nursemaid, but he meets Mabel, who agrees to marry him so that he can enter polite society. When the Pirates force Mabel and her sisters into marrying them, they are saved by the trickery of their father. A mix-up with Frederic's birthday forces him to give up Mabel, to complete 63 years more service. A group of policemen ponder the difficulties of capturing the Pirates. Battle ensues, before a shock revelation leads to peace, happiness, and a wedding for good measure!

DUCT presents a night of classical theatre, with ‘The Lovers’, a dark adaptation of Shakespeare’s ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’, followed by a modern adaptation of ‘Everyman’, the Medieval morality play.
DUCT presents a double-bill of student-written adaptations of classical plays! ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’ is a magical romp through a forest. ‘The Lovers’ asks whether it is quite so comedic when the trappings of fairies and mechanicals fall away, leaving us with a broken man begging us for answers. We must face the fact that we can give him none. ‘Everyman’ both isolates us and brings us together as we follow one man's journey to the afterlife. Filled with more questions than answers, we confront our own mortality in Everyman's journey to discover what it is that makes us human.

An emotionally powerful and intimate musical about two New Yorkers in their twenties who fall in and out of love over the course of five years.
DULOG is proud to present our production of The Last Five Years, the internationally acclaimed musical by Jason Robert Brown. The story explores a five-year relationship between Jamie Wellerstein, a rising novelist, and Cathy Hiatt, a struggling actress. The show's unconventional structure consists of Cathy telling her story backwards, at the end of their marriage, while Jamie tells his story chronologically, when they first fall in love. There is therefore no mystery about what happened – the real question is about why.

A play of 400 letters, spanning three decades and tracking the complex and beautiful relationship of America's beloved poets, Elizabeth Bishop and Robert Lowell.
“Asking you is the ‘might have been’ for me, the one towering change, the other life that might have been had. But I am sure it is the will of the heavens that all is as it is.” Elizabeth Bishop and Robert Lowell were two of America’s most brilliant poets. Throughout their lifetime, they wrote over 400 letters to eachother, spanning decades, continents, political eras and tumultuous periods in their own lives. Their connection was messy and profound, platonic yet romantic: a love that resists easy definition. These are their words, compiled and compressed by award-winning playwright Sarah Ruhl.
