Open Mic

Written by Hattie Taylor
Performed by Matilda Dickinson

Lottie is a singer, stepping onto the stage to perform at her local Open Mic Night. Her audience watches helplessly as she is reduced to a shaking heap on the floor by a panic attack before she can even begin her performance. Unable to sing, she talks instead – about her anxiety, about the reasons behind it, and about how it feels to constantly be at war with your own brain.

There’s Nothing There

In collaboration with Black Dog Productions!
Written by Russell Eccleston
Directed by Matilda Dickinson

What is there to do when you’re stuck in a cabin in the middle of the woods? Read a book? Play some Scrabble? Hide from the monsters lurking outside in the dark?

When their holiday becomes a living nightmare, six friends find themselves fighting for their lives. With night closing in and paranoia tightening its grip, even familiar people begin to feel like strangers. When fear twists everything out of recognition, what do you believe? Who can you trust?

Finding Feathers

Finding Feathers is a new devised production currently under development. This playful, poetic and full-of-possibilities show follows the story of a father and his two sons following the death of their wife and mother. As the family set about re-evaluating their lives now that there is one less of them, grief manifests itself in unexpected shapes and sizes. As grief often is, it is uncontrollable, bewildering, and often inappropriate.

This tender, and at times brutal, piece of story-telling is a highly physical exploration of grief as a physical entity, and the emotional role it plays in the process of damaging, but also repairing relationships following the death of a loved one.
