…has won Best Actor in a Foreign Feature for THE TRAP at the Fright Night Film Fest in Louisville, Kentucky – alongside 4 other acolades for the same movie!
 
ALPHA PAPA meets THE TEXAS CHAIN SAW MASSACRE in this high-octane comedy horror.
 
Two very different groups arrive at the same building on the same night. Both after the same loot, a hoard of ancient treasure buried deep within a vast, abandoned Victorian bathhouse. One is a group of professional cat burglars. Hardened, experienced, and on one last mission before retirement. The other … well, not so professional. A bunch of misfit, unemployed youngsters on a team building exercise.
 
But neither group’s ready for the horrors they encounter…

The Men from the Ministry are BACK!

Come back with us to the late sixties and see this way-ahead-of-its-time comedy programme, complete with the occasional cock-ups, the original warm-up and incredible sound-effects… nostalgic and very, very funny.

Men From The Ministry was a classic BBC radio comedy that was broadcast from 1962 to 1977, a total of fourteen series and 147 shows. It was often seen as the first Yes Minister; uproariously funny and often bitingly satirical.

Set in the fictitious ‘General Assistance Department’ the premise of bowler hatted twittery within the confines of the British Civil Service appealed to audiences all over the world.

This theatrical version stars SYDNEY STEVENSON and contains three extended versions of the radio scripts, written by two of the original writers.

Directed by Michael Kingsbury.

Performance dates:
3rd – 14th January 2017

Tuesday –Friday 7:30pm, Saturday 2:30pm, 7:30pm, Sunday 4pm

Tickets £15/£12 conc.

Shaista Aziz – Pause for Thought

Shaista Aziz has just finished recording her BBC Radio 2 Pause for Thoughts scripts.
The first broadcast goes out on Dec 30th.
She referenced Mahmoud Darwish, Audre Lorde aaaaand the mighty Wu Tang Clan, but obviously not in the same script, because that much awesomeness would’ve made the wireless combust. And that would be TERRIBLE for integration!

Eliza Power’s modern reworking of Tereus, Procne and Philomena from Ovid’s Metamorphoses returns to London for the first time since 2012, where it enjoyed sell-out runs at the Etcetera Theatre and Edinburgh and Sydney Fringe Festivals.
Directed by Milla Jackson, sex, lies and black comedy permeate Feathers, blending mythological symbolism and contemporary dialogue to create a dark tale of two sisters bound together by a past neither can escape.
When Marisa and Dan welcome Marisa’s estranged sister Edie into their home, to help care for their toddler son, their marriage is put to the test. Their marriage, already marred by interference from Marisa’s meddling best friend and the hint of infidelity, begins to splinter as Marisa’s sister’s
behavior becomes more and more erratic.
As birds die and fall out of the sky, Edie, struggling to settle into the fractured household finds solace in her new lover Nathan. But as Dan’s undeniable attraction to Edie develops, a dark history between the two sisters begins to emerge…
★★★★★ Refreshingly honest, emotive and at times mysterious Camden Gazette
★★★★★ Sharp, slick and shocking drama… incredibly funny and moving Broadway Baby
★★★★ Utterly convincing and wholly owned Three Weeks
