A young woman moves back in with her parents after leaving home at 18.
Surrounded by toys, pictures and memories of her childhood, she finds safety and warmth hiding away in the bed she grew up in.
You’re invited under the duvet to experience this funny, optimistic journey as she finds her way in the world by remembering the past.
Can she find the courage to leave her cocoon?
Written By Leah Brine
One Woman. One Question. A million answers.
Hello I’m Leah! Join me, on my exploration into the minds of the people around me and the answers I received when I asked one simple question.
‘You have one wish, what do you wish for?’
An immersive piece that will make you think.

Why confront your future when you can grab a few friends and go camping in the woods?
A small group of friends will find that putting life on hold isn’t as easy as it seems on TV. Sat around the flickering flames of the campfire we meet amongst others, a hopeless romantic, a broken athlete, a possible hereditary disease and a guy that just wants to play music. Join them on this “journey to self-awareness” camping story that doesn’t involve a murder.
Written by Matthew Emeny
Two lawyers, argue the fate of a man over gin and cream cheese sandwiches. A brother and sister lose their most valuable possession. A young girl chained to the wall of a damp basement, finally feels daylight on her skin.
Discover flickering nightclubs and monsters that hide under your bed. Four actors present this brand new devised, multi-rolling and heart pounding performance, exposing the hidden horrors that surround us.
In its early stages of production we invite you to join the ensemble and help shape this brand-new piece of theatre.
Seeing What Sticks

Seeing What Sticks is a comedy sketch show featuring three funny guys, just seeing
what ideas stick…
Armed with only our wit and good looks – well, at least our wit – we hereby cordially
invite you to join us in one of our favourite pastimes; laughing at ourselves. We’ve
poured what may be the entirety of our comedic talents into a series of sketches and
monologues. Come along and laugh with, or even at, us; as long as you’re laughing
we go home happy.
