Yerma

by Federico Garcia Lorca

Lorca tells the story of Yerma whose preoccupation with motherhood leads her to do the unthinkable. The play is a spectacular exploration of the pressure to bear children in conservative Spain during the 1900's, and the isolation and jealousy many women faced as a result of their inability to conceive.

Doctor! Doctor!!

An Ambulance. A Medical Team. A Farcical Epic – Mid Epidemic. The satirical slapstick medical roadshow – part DIY surgery demonstration gone wrong, part old time travelling medicine show. A farcical love triangle in a clapped out ambulance in the middle of an epidemic. This accidental emergency medical team is the front line of the NHS, forming SOS Squad – in an effort to stop the spread of the infection they are calling The Malady. Symptoms are many and varied. You are probably contaminated. Do not be alarmed. Possibly the last Doctor, Nurse and
Paramedic left standing desperately trying to treat the waiting room full of audience before it’s too late. SOS Squad are here to help.

Hat & Feather Forever

Playgroup's Greatest Hits

Convened last Fringe to fill a date that had fallen apart, this turned into one of the hits of trhe festival, at least for the generation who started The Playgroup back in the latter days of The Hat & Feather, bringing us the likes of Zen Hussies, ShakShak, Hanover St., Hodmadoddery, Brian Mad, and a hundred mysterious visitors we would never see again. Which of those luminaries will make it tonight is as unpredictable as it ever was, but you can be sure something unprecedented will happen.
Dedicated to Johnny Rench and Phil 'just wanna be like Jimi Hendrix'. More info and booking...
