GLITCH 7:30 pm
by Aaron Challoner
When social media watches what you do, would you admit your faults?
As a normal teenage lad, he uses social media a lot... Maybe, too much? As he continues to like, comment, subscribe or react to anything on every platform, little does he know that someone watches his media movements from afar, or possibly closer than expected. Maybe he was staring him right in the face all along... One glitch and you could miss it! #Glitch

A DAUGHTER'S PERSPECTIVE 7:40 pm
by George Beresford
What happens after Nora exits A Doll’s House? George Beresford’s after play explores the effects of a mother leaving the family home and growing up in a Dad’s House.
The heavy sound of a door being slammed resounds through theatrical history and where Ibsen ends on an exit Beresford begins. As the aftershocks of Nora’s departure from the family home, her children and husband ripple across the decades we see the impact of her decision on the life of her daughter Emmy. Starring George Beresford as Nora and Torvald’s daughter Emmy, this production charts Emmy’s journey from childhood to adulthood, through the 1970s and 80s, as she embraces the future while the past holds her back. As Emmy searches for her own identity and freedom she comes to know the truths of the father who raised her and the mother she lost. #afteradollshouse

SFW 8:00 pm
by Richard Delroy
Sam's made his choice, but after a freak accident sends him back in time, will he chose to change it?
Sam has made a decision that could change his life forever, but after a car accident, he wakes up in his bedroom nine months earlier. Is it a dream? How did he get here? And how does he get out? Trapped alone in his room, a series of self-tape video dairies are the only way to guide him through this uneasy reality... Or so he believes. A response to NSWF, a play by Lucy Kirkwood, SFW looks at the gap in Sam's timeline in a coming-of-age story that explores themes of love, redemption, and reflection. #CHOOSETOCHANGE
