Alchemical Wedding, The

Synopsis:
The alchemical Wedding centres on the obsession man has with the most precious of all precious metals - Gold - and its potential transformation from base metals. The most legendary of these experiments is that of the sixteenth century magus John Dee and his assistant and medium Edward Kelly - an experience which plunged them and their wives into a dark voyage and obsession that has haunted occultists and poets ever since.

Cards

Synopsis:
Often hilarious, with moments of pathos, Cards brings to life the vulgar, bouncy, leering characters of traditional seaside postcards painted by artist Donald McGill. The models for these cards - Big Fat Mam and Wiry Old Dad - reminisce nostalgically of the days of honest, innocent vulgarity. Vera and Charlie, their daughter and son-in-law, have followed in Mam and Dad's footsteps but Charlie is determined to be part of the new "sophisticated" fashion which demands syndicated strips and nudity. Hurt, angry and appalled by a changing postcard trade, Mam and Dad find themselves dumped on the inevitable scrap-heap.

Empty Bed Blues

Synopsis:
Stephen Lowe returns to local "hero"- DH Lawrence - for a moving and passionate study of the pains of love, of living, and of dying. In 1929, DH Lawrence and his wife visited two wealthy young Americans, hoping they might finance an edition of Lady Chatterley's Lover. The quartet proves to be a potent, unpredictable combination.Penniless and desperate to find a publisher for his "Lady Chatterley", Lawrence and Frieda turn to a legendary couple of the American "lost generation", the drug fuelled poet and publisher Harry Crosby and his beautiful sculptress wife, Caresse. Their passionate experiment in the total excess of living collides with the Lawrence's more painful relationship revealing a major clash of culture, of class and of sexual desire. Empty Bed Blues is a tragic-comic stage poem on life, death, and, above else, the nature of love and betrayal. It is based on the diaries of all four of the characters.

Glamour

Synopsis:
Glamour is based on the true story of a young filmmaker confronted with gangland's most notorious duo. Set in the swinging '60s, the play looks at the heyday of the Moulin Rouge - not the Paris nightclub but a picture palace in Nottingham. The story examines how a character called Jimmy Potter embarks on his own Blue Movie which is shot on an old, wind-up camera. Frank and Connie, owners of the Moulin Rouge cinema, arrange a screening. But their shady, gangland past attracts two infamous guests. Glamour is based on fact: Stephen Lowe really did direct his own Blue Movie and the screening at the Moulin Rouge was attended by some notable hoodlums.

Glasshouses

Synopsis:
The adjective that best describes Glasshouses is Lawrentian. Two working-class families, resident in Nottingham in 1963, embody two of the dominant themes in Lawrence's work. In the Cooper family, young Jim looks on in frustrated resentment while his adored mother sacrifices herself to a man intellectually and morally beneath her. In the ashton family, pitiless Elsie has totally emasculated her husband, Frank - Like Lawrence, Lowe comes Up with extraordinary moments of pathos and poetry.

It's Not Personal

Synopsis:
The piece was written and performed within a day at the Nottingham Playhouse prior the evening performance of Brecht's Mother Courage. The aim was to "lock away" the writer to discover a piece from surfing that days newspapers that signified "courage". I came across a tiny paragraph in a south asia English newspaper. There was to be a planned peaceful march in Myanmar in support of Hung San Sun Kiya, the democratically elected leader of what was then named Burma, who had been under house arrest since the military take-over. The article simply stated that leading members of her organisation were being "questioned".

Old Big 'Ead In The Spirit Of The Man

Synopsis:
His style was legendary. The last great working- class hero, Cloughie was the man in the green jumper who threw out the rule-book and inspired the men of the Forest to their greatest victories. Even after a transfer to the Other Side it's impossible to keep a good manager down. But in the afterlife of Brian, there's a very different sort of team lost in the Forest - and leading a band of theatre-makers to glory is a whole new ball-game. a love of the spotlight, an ego the size of a stadium: perhaps Old Big 'Ead always belonged on the stage. Now Nottingham's finest - and Derby's too - proves he's not just the greatest manager England never had, but the greatest stand-up comic as well. Celebrate the courage and the conviction, the tears and the triumphs - the spirit of the man.

Sea Change

Synopsis:
The most beautiful thing about Seachange (first seen at Riverside Studios in 1984) is its use of language Lowe's lyricism washed over me like a warm wave. It is set, appropriately, at sea, and was inspired both by the memory of Mr Lowe's grandfather, who drowned on a Red Cross ship in the First World War, and by the more recent war in the Falklands. - Tribune

Spirit Of Man, The

Synopsis:
The Spirit of the Man is a hilarious speculative fantasy that follows Cloughie beyond the Final Whistle and into extra time. Not one to take death lying down, Old Big 'Ead jumps at the chance of returning to this earthly realm to dispense his own special brand of inspiration. But there's one thing he hasn't bargained on: it's not a football manager who's in need of assistance, it's a writer-director called Jimmy, whose personal and professional life is falling apart at the seams. Undaunted, Brian soon has him creating a new epic about his own role model, Robin Hood - and when the cast arrive with all manner of problems and suggestions of their own, he has plenty of team-building advice to dispense. Cloughie's idea of a good playwright might be Ernie Wise, but as far as he's concerned, the right way is My Way. No matter that Jimmy, with a phantom football manager popping up at his elbow every two minutes, thinks he's losing his marbles. But this is a play of two halves and even Brian has a thing or two to learn before the final curtain.
