Jezebel

Playing dates Wed 27 Sept-Sun 1 Oct 2017 at 7.45 pm

Jezebel is a clever comedy about the dumb consequences of hot sex meeting cold statistics. A light-hearted lesson in what not to do when your sex life needs saving.

Alan and Robin are a dynamic couple looking to spice up their sex life.   Could a threesome the answer to their problems? Unfortunately they choose Jezebel as the third corner of their triangle who, in spite of her name, is about the most unlikely candidate for such an adventure. The consequences for all three of them are as unexpected as they are hilarious.

Great Britain

Playing dates Thurs 12-Sat 21 October 2017 at 7:45pm

Audition date Sunday 14th May 2017 at 2pm

This is a fast and furious play; an anarchic satire about the Press, the Police and the Political establishment inspired by the ‘phone hacking’ trial of 2014.  The cosily corrupt connections between the press, police and politics are the key targets providing a loud, rambunctious, foul-mouthed entertainment, packed with lurid characters and vulgar jokes. Very strong language throughout, scenes of a sexual nature – not for the faint hearted!!

And so, she begins to manipulate the fates of those around her to devastating effect. This closely woven piece blisters in its intensity, as Hedda – bent on self-destruction – tears down those around her.
