Some Recent Productions
Friday 11 May - Saturday 19 May
1984 by George Orwell
In George Orwell's 1984, people live under ignorant oppression in Oceania, a place where the Party scrutinizes human actions with ever-watchful eye of Big Brother. Defying a ban on individuality, Winston Smith dares to express his thoughts in a diary and pursue a relationship with the mysterious Julia. These criminal deeds bring Winston to the attention of the opposition and O’Brien, who then must reform the nonconformist. 1984 has never been more relevant and is compelling as it is terrifying, introducing the watchwords for life without freedom: BIG BROTHER IS WATCHING YOU.
An Amateur Production by arrangement with Knight Hall Agency Ltd

Elephant's Graveyard by George Brant
(a rehearsed reading)
There was a town. There was a circus. There was a railroad. There was an elephant. And there was a man with red hair. In 1916, a tiny town in Tennessee will experience the greatest show on Earth. A sight never before seen by any man and it’s going to put them on the map, forever. Combining historical fact and legend, this poignant and revealing play sheds a harsh spotlight on mankind’s lust for spectacle, violence and revenge.
