One Year Itch

“I don’t mind if I don’t have sex for an entire year – as long as I get the promotion

Tania has her heart set on her dream job but has she unwittingly placed a curse on her dating life?

Our heroine, ably assisted by her bestie Jayne, comes face to face with the trials and tribulations of lesbian courtship. Emotional unavailability, overfamiliar mothers and blatant catfishing abound in this not-so-romantic comedy.

Can she realise her ambition to become organiser of the hottest ticket in town? Will she be doomed to remain everyone’s favourite singleton? And, honestly, was it really all about the Moroccan room?

Award winning actor Anca Vaida leads an all-female and non-binary cast in this brand new LGBTQI+ play from Awkward Branch Productions. One Year Itch runs from 9th-13th January at Barons Court Theatre at 19:30.

You Stupid Darkness!

You Stupid Darkness!

In a cramped, crumbling office, four volunteers spend a few hours every Tuesday night on the phone telling strangers that everything is going to be okay.

As the outside world disintegrates, they teeter on the edge of their own personal catastrophes. Their hopes and fears become entangled as they try, desperately, to connect with the callers and with each other.

Sam Steiner’s You Stupid Darkness! is an urgent play about the struggle for optimism and community amid the chaos of a world falling apart. It was first seen at Theatre Royal Plymouth in February 2019, in a co-production between Paines Plough and Theatre Royal Plymouth.

Crookback – Shakespeare’s Richard III rebooted

This February Midland Players, are back on stage with the premiere of a newly published play which reimagines one of Shakespeare’s most well-known works.
Writing to please his patron, Elizabeth I, and relying on sources which supported the Tudor portrayal of Richard III as a usurper of the throne of England and mass murdering tyrant, Shakespeare crafted one of the most monstrous villains of literature – a physically deformed fiend that came to supplant the Richard of history! How different might that play be if Shakespeare wrote it today, with access to all the historical information now available, and at no risk of losing his head? That is the question which Crookback – Shakespeare’s ‘Richard III’ Rebooted seeks to answer.
With updated language, and the long boring bits removed (!), ‘Crookback’ is Shakespeare for people who think they don’t like Shakespeare, and even though this version of ‘Richard III’ may be missing a hunchback, audiences can expect duplicitous rogues plotting to seize the throne, doomed romance, rolling heads, and dark comedy!
This great show runs from Weds. 15th to Sat. 18th Feb. at Sheffield University Drama Studio, Shearwood Road, S10 2TD,
Doors 7pm, curtain up at 7.30 pm.
