LYSISTRATA

Written by

El Waddingham

COMEDY

LYSISTRATA, adapted by El Waddingham from Aristophanes’ ancient comedy follows a group of ferocious women as they take a stand against war by refusing to have sex with their husbands (and take over the city’s financial and political epicentre, but that’s far less scandalous) Throw in an all-female/queer cast and crew, language pulled straight from the original text and the comments section of a Twitter argument and a hardy dose of female rage-and you’ve got an emblematic theatrePUNK co. show. Taking a deep stab at questions of activism, womanhood, and queerness, LYSISTRATA is a dagger-edged, glittered new take on an iconic story of women doing what we do best: fight.

MEN DON’T CRY

Written by

George Nyamuzinga & Tafadzwa Muzondo

DRAMA

Society has always downplayed female paedophilia for a very long time. But this is a severe issue. Boys are raped and abused every day, and it goes unreported; hence the number of women sexually abusing children is much higher than conviction rates. Reasons for low conviction rates are cited as male victims particularly feel reluctant to come forward because they fear that their experience will not be viewed as sexual abuse. They feel pressure to view their sexual encounters with women as a badge of honour. Men Don’t Cry is a one-man stage theatre play that explores this issue from an African point of view. This dramatic comedy piece fused with ancient African music is moving, touching, and entertaining at the same time while giving social insight on many African issues affecting African men living in the diaspora.

Igor Ejmont

SPACE: THE FLAT FRONTIER

Written by

Ophelia Novak

COMEDY/SATIRE

MA 15+ Strong themes and language. Exploring themes of groupthink, anti-intellectualism, and right-wing groups in a satirical atmosphere, SPACE is a reality TV show set in orbit. After his rush to the edge of the Earth’s atmosphere, basquillionaire Pritchard Danson begins searching for a cast for his newest idea- SPACE: The Flat Frontier. In this format, he challenges Flat Earth Society members Karen, Rick James, and Leah to the limits of their beliefs. This political comedy work looks at the dangers of conspiracy theorists, groupthink, religious influence and pokes a lot of jokes on the way at Egad Dusk. Based on Charlie and Chocolate Factory and Space Odyssey.

THEATRE OF THE MOUTH

Written by

Calum Johnston

COMEDY

The show starts in ten minutes, now you just need to sit back and wait a bit. Waiting for ten minutes? That’s an awfully long wait. What will we do in the meantime?
Theatre of the mouth is a one-man clowning piece suitable for all ages about the noble act of waiting A very less profound and more silly Waiting for Godot filled with laughter, whimsy, and a whole lot of waiting around.
