Call of the Revolution

by Leonid Andreyev; adapted by Walter Wykes

Call of the Revolution

Directed by Anastasia Diatlova

Call of the Revolution is a look at a family who wake up to the unrest and turmoil of their country and how they come to terms with what is about to happen. It is a character study that shows people on the brink of great events – be they terrible or tremendous. Even after hundred years this play still rings true – what will you do, what will you feel when you hear them building barricades outside your window?

Cast:
Man – Justus Rothlaender
Woman – Erna Bodström

The Bench

The BenchWritten & directed by Beth Morton

Welcome to Dermot’s world. Quiet, content and happy, he basks in his custom made, hassle free life on his bench. What could possible trouble this tramp?

Enter the breezy, unrelenting Rosa to invade his space and outstay her welcome with her self confessed detective radar and compulsive talking. Turning Dermot’s peace and quiet into a distant memory she’s only too happy to point out the error of his ways, whether he wants to hear it or not. Oh, and then Dave turns up – the uniquely self styled, totally cool man about town.

It all sounds so simple……..but then again appearances can be deceiving.

Cast:

Dermot – Niko Lindell
Rosa – Haylie Lehtovaara
Dave – David Rogers

NOT the Vagina Monologues

It’s always the same story: the best roles are written for men. In fact, most roles seem to be written for men, especially the comedic ones. We’d had enough. So we decided to put on an all-women comedy show, in everything from writing to acting.

It’s by women, but not just for women. We hope everyone – male, female or other – will enjoy our collection of comic playlets and sketches. It’s okay, we promise not to go on and on about you-know-what.

Pieces include:
See No, Hear No, Speak No
The H-bomb
Have I Got History For You
Pen Argument
The Old and the Dutiful
The Suspect
Elk, Elk, Moose!
Single White Quotation
