Somewhere on a painter’s site basking in the summer sun of 1993 sit two men, not just work mates, best mates! In a time before social media when we liked to talk rather than tweet, men like Ray and Leon all over the UK find themselves discussing everything and yet never really saying anything. In the days of Shell Suits and Gameboys, of Brit Pop and Hyper-colour T-shirts, the early 90’s seemed a simpler time. But when work is not enough Ray and Leon find themselves at life’s crossroads. Unable to open up and reach out to one another, the two working class men find it hard to really say what they need to. Pushed together by coincidence, held together by necessity, stuck together by circumstance.

TRUE COLOURS is a hilarious one act play from writer Paul Stevens that is both funny and true to life. Beyond the work ‘bants’, jokes and jibes there are two human hearts that seek something more, yet like us all are far to scared to jump. Ray and Leon must find a way in their working week to say what they mean, to be honest with themselves and each other and for once, show their TRUE COLOURS.

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.

Like a spell: a good spell.” Lyn Gardner
