IF YOU ANSWERED MOSTLY A, THE SHOW FOR YOU IS...NO ONE
Strange things are happening in Wellstone; a haunted pub quiz, a hovering pizza, and flying girls going missing.
No One is a high-octane thriller about love, friendship and betrayal, inspired by the themes of H.G Wells’ The Invisible Man. With a live DJ and action-packed fight scenes, this slick modern story reflects the hectic, ultra-visible and technology-centric life we lead today.
IF YOU ANSWERED MOSTLY B, THE SHOW FOR YOU IS THE FABULOUS LIVE TO TELL: (A PROPOSAL FOR) THE MADONNA JUKEBOX MUSICAL
Brian has a dream: pitching himself to the Queen of Pop as the author of her glitzy new musical. But when the undetectable reality of HIV rises up, things change quicker than a Ray of Light.
LIVE TO TELL mashes up queer history and pop artifice into some highly personal Confessions on a Dancefloor. Sure, medicine can suppress a virus, but how do we keep on living? Just like a prayer, this show will take you there.
IF YOU ANSWERED MOSTLY C, THE SHOW FOR YOU IS THE MYSTICAL AND MAGICAL MERBOY
The fantasy world of fairy-tale meets the dramatic yearnings of 1960s girl band music and the intense depths of gay shame in Merboy, a poetic and queer retelling of The Little Mermaid.
Using verse, storytelling and lip-synching, Merboy tells the story of a sexual awakening of mixed heritage queer boy navigating school homophobia and the brutal complexities of gay scene.
AND FINALLY, IF YOU ANSWERED MOSTLY D, THE WOMAN WHO TURNED INTO A TREE IS FOR YOU
The Woman Who Turned into a Tree is a world premiere from writer Lisa Langseth (Love & Anarchy, Netflix) and director Emily Louizou. Fusing original music with live sound and movement, this new play inspired by the Daphne myth is a timely tale about isolation, identity and destructive obsession with the opinions of others.
