No Idea

Synopsis:
This is a picture of Rachael and Lisa. If they were in a show, what kind of show it would be? Who would you choose to play the main character? Who would you choose to be the funny one? Armed with a tape recorder, Rachael and Lisa went on to the streets and asked people what they thought their show should be about. What they heard and recorded was funny, heartfelt, sometimes staggering but always very very revealing about what we can (and can't) imagine when we look at someone.

Devised by Lisa Hammond, Rachael Spence And Lee Simpson

Spirit

Synopsis:
Three performers play three brothers who break bread together and wait for their story to begin. The performers wait too. And when did a story not happen to three brothers? Spirit takes you to a Improbable world of ugly improvisation, headless puppets, fractured storytelling and visual imagery to find out what happens to three brothers, who are in a simple story that gets complicated when things don't turn out the way they should. If drama is conflict, is conflict still drama when the performers don't agree? That is really don't agree.

Notes:
Created by Julian Crouch, Phelim McDermott, Lee Simpson, Guy Dartnell And Arlene Audergon

theatre Of Blood

Synopsis:
Seven self-regarding critics assemble at a disused theatre in response to a mysterious invitation. Too late they discover its gruesome purpose as Edward Lionheart, an actor frenzied by a lifetime of sneering reviews, hacks his revengeful way through the bloody works of Shakespeare, assisted by a gang of murderous tramps. the laws of theatre supersede the laws of physics in this macabre exhibition of putty noses, Kensington gore and some very large acting indeed.

Notes:
written by Lee Simpson And Phelim McDermott. Based on the film by Stanley Mann And John Knott And the screenplay by Anthony Greville-Bell
