Upcoming Productions

This play is performed by the One Year Course Company of 18 actors. The play is 2 short plays in two acts and explores the struggle of ordinary people to continue living their lives in the context of conflict and war.

Citizens is set at the dividing wall of an unspecified war-torn country where a series of unconnected exchanges between ordinary people transpire as they go about their day-to-day lives. A picture of life is revealed in the fragments of the interchanges between vulnerable people where the human spirit is carefully probed and laid bare.

Soldiers is set in an air force hangar in any first world country, where family members gather to receive the bodies of their sons, brothers, husbands and friends lost in a conflict that they may not have supported.

This play is performed by Third Year graduates and is set at Comic-Con London 2022. Five factions of fantasy fiction descend on their favourite annual event. Whether it’s in memory of a loved one, wanting to make the experience as perfect as possible or to meet the keynote speaker, Scarlett Johansson, they are all there for a different reason. But as the day goes on, the cracks in their masks start to form as their underlying human lives catch up with their superhero personas. Until eventually they fall victim to the day’s darkest secrets as their lives unravel in comic-book chaos! 

This one act play with songs pays homage to comic book pop culture and digs deep into the human condition by asking the question, why do we feel the need to wear a mask?
