- Three Weeks

What does it mean to have the right to speak, if you can somehow be prevented from using it?

This question is at the heart of ‘Speak No Evil’: a quietly provocative, deeply engaging production that explores the ways in which people are censored in what they say – and what they believe.

Told from the viewpoint of a young girl from Belarus, Europe’s last dictatorship, this three-person performance fuses spoken word with arresting elements of physical theatre to examine various degrees of oppression of speech: from the extreme of dictatorship, to attitudes towards women and even well-intentioned parental control.

Simply staged, beautifully written and outstandingly delivered, this is a captivating, original piece of theatre that ought to be heard.

From England

In the wake of Margaret Thatcher's death, Jim Cartwright's play Two continues to challenge its audiences, presenting the lives of the marginalised working-class characters from a northern pub in the 1980s.

With a cast of just two, this is a play that explores the unfulfilled dreams of the pub's 14 regulars under the Thatcher government.

Through these colourful characters we are brought on a journey through the highs and lows of northern 1980s life on an unstable, dramatic trajectory that leaves audiences in both tears and giggles.
