OUR 2023 SEASON PREVIEW
July 'The Flick'
September 'Accidental Death of an Anarchist'
Directed by Rory-Miller-Frost & Louie Collins
Hilarious and touching. In a run-down movie theatre in central Massachusetts, three underpaid employees mop the floors and attend to one of the last 35mm film projectors in the state.
Their tiny battles & not-so-tiny heartbreaks play out in the empty aisles, becoming more gripping than the lacklustre, second-run movies on screen. With keen insight and a finely-tuned comic eye, The Flick is an hilarious and heart-rending cry for authenticity in a fast-changing world.

ACCIDENTAL DEATH OF AN ANARCHIST
Directed by Lesley Reed
Written to show up and send up institutional corruption after a true event, Dario Fo’s 1970 farce Accidental Death of an Anarchist remains relevant, allowing us to laugh in the face of high level cover ups.
The play begins with a sly yet charming ‘maniac’ being interrogated at Milan police headquarters. By impersonating a range of characters including a judge, he outwits bumbling police and begins to expose the truth behind a recent ‘accidental’ death in custody of a political activist. 'Outrageously funny’-Limelight Magazine
Director Lesley Reed enhances the absurdity and buffoonery with female actors as male police in this hilarious English-language adaptation.
