GUTTED by Sharon Byrne

GUTTED a black comedy explores the lives of three strong women who work in a fish factory in 1980's Dublin. Told through comic monologue, raw powerful language and dance, the women give us a snapshot of the characters and challenges in their lives at the time. In light of Ireland's recent referendum on abortion, these issues remain as relevant today as they did over 30 years ago.

"An exhilarating experience and a wonderful life affirming play". Mark Everitt, 'former' Director The Marlowe Theatre, Canterbury

TheatreShack StageWorks Youth presents:

Punk Rock

Edgy and acute, Punk Rock is a slow-building story of violence at school, told with compelling depth and tension. The play introduces us to seven high-achieving teenagers at a fee-paying grammar school. They are holed up in the Upper School library, tucked away from supervision, revising — or not, as the case may be — for their mock A-Levels. It is a recognisable stew of rivalries, desires and confusions. As exam pressure builds, anxiety flares up into aggression, revealing a raw undercurrent of panic and hostility.

Box Office: https://www.buytickets.at/vbn/280968

Ticket Price: £10 (concessions)

Pump House Theatre Company presents:

ENDGAME

After an unexplained apocalyptic event the once powerful and important (so he believes) Hamm is left blind and wheelchair bound, looked after by his servant Clov who both adores and hates him. They share their small refuge with Nagg and  Nell, Hamm's elderly and (literally) legless parents who reside in bins. These desperate characters live out the last days of mankind unwilling to give up but with no real reason to keep going.
