PLAYS

Statuary
Statuary is a contemporary retelling of the highly-romanticized Pygmalion myth from the perspective of his statue-turned-wife, Galatea. Combining passages from Ovid’s Metamorphoses and contemporary dialogue, this two-person play explores the issues of consent control and agency in abusive relationships.
Content warning: domestic violence, sexual assault.

Evermore, Edgar
A heartbeat. A raven. A thunderstorm.
Between worlds of memory and madness, Evermore, Edgar is a puppetry piece which tells the story of poet Edgar Allan Poe, haunted by the perverse tales of his own creations.

Garbage Paris
Garbage Paris exemplifies just how hard it is to have conversations in contemporary society. Exploring the intricacies of misogyny, queer culture and power dynamics, we want to know what makes you uncomfortable.

The Web We Have
Upon piles and piles of moving boxes, Alice and Jamie find themselves uncovering more than just the stuff they packed away. The Web We Weave tells the story of what it’s like to care for people with a mental illness.

The Killing of a Sacred Duck
The Killing of A Sacred Duck is an exploration of what it’s like to be a young woman growing up in a world in which sex is so often tied to violence. It is an exploration of the grey zones of our sexual experiences, and an inquiry into the sacredness of a child’s body.
In this interactive production the audience will make choices for Delilah along the way.
Will she “Quack like a duck? or “Hide beneath her ruffled feathers?”
