An actor-musician follow up to Shakespeare's popular comedy, A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Fourteen years have passed since the fateful night Thisbe’s parents, Helena and Demetrius, were lost in the woods. The only thing they remember is waking up completely in love with one another. But as their love becomes obsession, where does this leave their neglected and confused daughter, Thisbe? Cue the prankster Puck and his fairy flunkeys who love nothing more than to meddle with the mortal world. With the promise of solving all of her problems, they lure Thisbe into the woods where it isn’t long before she finds herself embroiled in their roguery. Intoxicated with magic and adventure, has Thisbe gone too far this time? Can she stop her family falling apart? BSL interpreted and with an original score.
When Disney-loving Aminah meets blood-soaked Kayla in after-school detention, neither expects to bring a whole community to its knees. Borderland is a provocative, urgent look at modern-day segregation: a story of race, class, sexuality and power guaranteed to challenge liberal and traditional values alike. Starring local actress Chloe McLaughlin.
Imagine being a colourless tiger with no stripes? A border separates the East and the West. Twenty years have passed and people are tested to see where their real loyalties lie. A relevant story of culture, prejudice and how one event can change the lives of many. Will the tiger ever find it's colour?
