Wed 23 May 2018, 8pm
New Year’s Eve. A house party like any other, in a suburb like any other. Two very different strangers meet, each looking for a new start and to shake off the disappointments of the past. But champagne, cheap lager and their chance encounter leads this unlikely couple to an unplanned pregnancy. Against all odds, can they make their newfound family a success? Winner of the Stewart Parker Award, this heartfelt, moving drama charts their journey of love, loss, and redemption.
based on HENRIK IBSEN'S classic tale
Wed 30 May 2018, 8pm
This artful adaptation focuses on the impossible idolisation of one 'perfect' woman, by a man who walks with weights around his ankles. Incorporating visually-stunning choreography and emotive, real-life verbatim interviews, our contemporary version will rocket Ibsen's famous tale into a hugely relevant re-telling for modern audiences.
