Next week: Manpower

Silent battles of power drive a politically complex commentary on Britain’s working men over the last 40 years, as a British man and an Eastern European woman share the stage. Sound-tracked on vinyl by the tunes of those years, it’s theatre for the hard-working modern Britain. Wed 26 – Thu 27 Sep.

Coming soon: Scotties

A powerful new play celebrating the music and languages of Scotland and Ireland, written by Muireann Kelly and Frances Poet. Thu 27 – Sat 29 Sep.

Coming soon: Arctic Oil
