The Real Inspector Hound

directed by Mark Wilson


Two theatre critics attend a performance of an Agatha Christie type 'whodunnit?', little knowing that they will become key players in the lives of the drama they have gone to review.

This is the play where 'real life' ends up on stage and 'on stage' ends up in the audience. And, if that doesn't do anything for you, it's also one of the funniest plays ever written.



After Magritte

directed by Martin Nichols


Q: What's going on?
A: Well, it's 35 minutes of mayhem. It's absurd, surreal, hilarious, ingenious and very curious to boot. Imagine "Dad's Army Meets Derrida". "Steptoe and Schopenhauer".
