Current Projects

ON HOLD: Insights from the in-between

We're delighted to announce our new project, ON HOLD: Insights from the in-between.

During these pretty un-stimulating weeks and months, hovering between two states, we must continue the search for inspiration in our lives.

While we wait for some normality to return, we'll be releasing a new monologue each week for the next four weeks. We've taken four never-before-seen pieces of writing, surrendered them to some up-and-coming, local actors, and told them to go at it! We'll be premiering each self-taped piece from this exciting collection here on our website and on our YouTube channel every Monday at 6pm so be sure to check back for more!

(If you enjoy On Hold, please consider leaving a donation. This will help cover costs incurred by the cancellation of the Edinburgh Fringe, and support our future work. We will be donating 25% of anything we receive to NHS Charities Together. Thank you!)

ON HOLD, Part I: Purgatory,Vol. 1

Watch the first part of the series here. Written by Hélèna Langfield and performed by Joe Kinch.

A Few Short Studies on Cannibalism

First performed in November 2019, A Few Short Studies on Cannibalism was to be performed at Edinburgh Festival Fringe in August 2020. This revised version of the show will hopefully return in 2021 and is available for touring - please contact us for more information.

Darwin: A Sh*t Musical

We've previewed this hilarious parody musical about the life of Charles Darwin before, showcasing its ingenious remakes of classic pop hits, but sadly we won't get to debut the full production at Edinburgh this August. Hopefully Darwin will return in all its glory in 2021!
