A WORLD PREMIERE 

How far would you go to protect your family?

George and Margaret have three children and will do anything to protect them. After war breaks out and threatens their safety, they decide to hide in their bunker, wait for it to end and attempt to carry on with their lives. The days and months pass, the children grow and they seem to remain safe and secure.

As questions begin to arise, cracks start to form that threaten to break this family apart forever. Yet where do they have to go? And who can they turn to except each other? This claustrophobic and intimate new play from Abrahan Arsis, explores the irrational measures we can be driven to, to keep those we care about alive.

This is the second new play from Tangled Thread Theatre Ltd. who previously brought one-woman show Close To You to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and the Southwark Playhouse.  Supporting new talent, they are part of the Professionally Made Professionally Paid Equity programme.

Box Office opens at 7.00pm. The performance lasts approximately 1 hour without Interval. No re-admittance once the performance has commenced.

LATECOMERS MAY NOT BE ADMITTED. PLEASE ARRIVE IN GOOD TIME FOR THE START TIME OF 7.45PM.

Elise and Sirenna have written a play! They have nabbed a great space! They have secured financial backing! They have written a marketing blurb!

They are still not taken seriously.

A play about two women writing a play about two women writing a play about two women writing a play.

call me fury

17 Sept - 5 Oct

“The fire of fear is the only flame that burns bright.”

CALL ME FURY is about The Salem Witch Trials. Sort of. A feral scream of rage, this play is a commentary about sexual politics and feminism today – set to live folk music.
