Bang Bang Bang

Bang Bang Bang
a seasoned humanitarian worker and her idealistic young colleague get ready for a trip to the Democratic Republic of Congo. For Mathilde it's an induction into a life less ordinary. For Sadhbh it's back to madness and chaos away from her lover and London  exactly as she likes it. But while Mathilde lets off steam with a photographer and a spliff, Sadhbh has her own encounter: tea with a smart, brutal young warlord she's investigating. Or is it the other way round? Playwright StElla Feehily brings her trademark wit and emotional insight to this revealing new play that goes behind the public face of charities, journalists and NGOs.

Dreams Of Violence

Dreams Of Violence
Mum, I had a dream last night where I threw you down the stairs. It's not right.' For Hildy, political activism comes easier that dealing with the disorder of her family life: Her druggie son; her philandering husband; her father, misbehaving in a hugely expensive retirement home. and then there's her mother - a charismatic 60s pop star, who clings to her former beauty (and a bottle of vodka), and who sets up camp in Hildy's spare room to belittle her from close range. By day, Hildy leads the City's cleaners in revolt against the bankers. But by night, she dreams unsettling acts of violence.

Love And A Bottle

Synopsis:
Wild Irish playwright George Roebuck arrives in London in 1698 with nothing in his pockets but his first play. His mission is to be the toast of Drury Lane, to seduce as many fine ladies as he can procure and then marry an heiress. But, unfortunately for him, he is pursued from Ireland by two young women who have other plans... Rehearsed reading. Stella Feehily's adaptation of George Farquhar's first play reveals many of the qualities that characterise his later work and captures the genius of the often-considered father of Irish drama. Developed with students at LAMDA this new version of Love and a Bottle will be fully producd by Out of Joint in 2016.

This May Hurt A Bit

This May Hurt A Bit
"It would be a great reform in politics if wisdom could be made to spread as easily and rapidly as folly". A month after stating we will stop the top-down reorganisation of the NHS that has got in the way of patient care , the government launched the biggest top-down reorganisation the service had seen in its 65-year history. With characteristic wit, tenderness, and dives into surrealism, Stella Feehily's new play explores one family's journey through the digestive system of the NHS, and asks: what is the prognosis for this much-loved institution?
