Perhaps the best stage comedy ever written!
The plot is simple: Jack is trying to kill off his alter-ego, Ernest, in order to marry the woman he loves but getting rid of his invented self is harder than he realises.
The play is full of the best Wildean quips and one of the most memorable tiger mothers of all time - Lady Bracknell. In fact it’s just the perfect recipe for a great night at the theatre!
by W S Gilbert and Sir Arthur Sullivan

Get ready to be appalled at yourself for laughing out loud at the horrors revealed in this diabolically funny play.

A slick, violent black comedy set in the Soho clubland of the1950s, Mojo premiered at the Royal Court, London, on 14 July 1995. It was a sensational debut, billed as the first time since John Osborne's Look Back in Anger that a first play was premiered on the Royal Court's main stage – though in fact Butterworth had co-written several earlier plays and a short film, The Night of the Golden Brain (Carlton, 1994).
The play is set in Ezra's Atlantic Club in Soho during the summer of 1958. Silver Johnny, Ezra's seventeen-year-old rock 'n' roll protégé, is causing a sensation at the club. Two petty crooks, Sweets and Potts, high on amphetamines, introduce us to this criminal milieu. They are joined by two others, Skinny, and Baby, who is Ezra's son. Baby enjoys tormenting, even torturing, Skinny. While the youngsters mess about, a local gangster, Sam Ross, kills Ezra, and takes Silver Johnny. Terrified, the gang, now led by Mickey (Ezra's number two) barricade themselves in the club and prepare for an attack. Although he is Ezra's son and heir, Baby realises that Mickey is now in charge and suggests they run the club together, but Mickey rejects him. In the power struggle that ensues, Baby demonstrates that he's more than a match for Mickey – and nobody escapes unscathed.

These two short plays from Shepard's powerful collection Kick-Ass Plays for Women tell unforgettable stories about women finding ways to connect and support each other in unlikely or impossible circumstances.
In Commencing, a straight woman and a lesbian are bounced together on a blind date. It’s a fast-paced, funny play shot through with moments of quiet tragedy as they pick apart each other’s lives and loves in search of meaning.
Nine sees two women held prisoner, chained by the neck in a cellar, using words as challenges to help each other fight off despair and keep hope alive. Harrowing and sometimes brutal, it’s a triumph of the human spirit in the face of the most inhumane circumstances.
