INFERNO - 22

Abandon all hope, on entry here. Immerse yourself in the terrifying world of Dante’s classic poem, brought screaming into the modern day. In this multi-sensory experience, featuring physical theatre and film set to a thudding score, descend into the circles of hell and despair at what lies in wait. Will you lose yourself to Lust? Be consumed by Gluttony? Or unleash your inner Rage? THIS is hell on Earth.

THE PILLOW MAN

Witness characters being plunged into unprecedented situations. Explore how the past guides present decisions. Question morality to decide what is right and wrong. A self-proclaimed author writes stories about child torture and murder, but when reality starts to imitate art, the writer finds himself in a difficult situation. Are these stories coincidences, or is something more sinister afoot? With off the rails detectives and a narcissistic writer, can this mystery be solved? Will these victims receive justice?

UNDERNEATH THE WALLPAPER

1950s suburbia is not all as it seems. When faced with an unexpected piece of news, obedient housewife Mary must decide how to react. Whichever path she chooses, she somehow must break free from the pressures of the misogyny that has kept her in line... until now. Watch as we push the boundaries of gender role reversal in this thrilling, psychological stage performance.
