Smoke Weed, Eat Pussy Everyday

‘Be the girl on tinder every girl wants to go to raves with’

They say this city never sleeps. Some people don’t have anywhere to sleep. For some people drugs are the home they go back to. Is partying always a fun vibe… Or is it just somewhere to belong?

This work in progress is a semi-autobiographical, spoken word theatre piece by Chloё Florence which explores sexuality, drugs, homelessness and rave culture.

Poet, playwright and performer - Chloё’s work is routed in truth and spoken word. As an ‘Artivist’ - she aims to give a voice to the voiceless in society / on stage.

Member of Shutdown Collective, Poetry Collective at the Roundhouse, Longlisted for the Outspoken Poetry Prize and Vault Festival New Writers Award Winner.

Him Indoors

An absurd comedy horror set in a ridiculous town full of oddbodds: A journalist gets a tipoff on a story he just has to follow, and into an unknown town he goes to meet a strange lady in a house on a hill…

Douberful are a company formed by Sonja Doubleday who have made short films with various members. The current brand new production Him Indoors consists of three performers, Sonja Doubleday, Nina Attesh and Tiberious Chris who have come together to make this play.

George

George is a piece about the dehumanising effects of ambition within cities. It follows an everyman character on his way to his meeting with "J"; an absent but ever present figure of authority and enlightenment. George meets several people along the way, but in a world where everyone is out for themselves, who is there left to trust?

CTNGCY Theatre is a physical theatre company. It is unique in the sense that its roots in traditional theatre allow the company to choreograph contemporary dance to deliver a strong narrative.

A Truefitt Collective presents... LOVE & SPAGHETTI, their newest work exploring the complexity, vulnerability and simplicity of human relationships.

Human interpersonal relationships are vital for our survival, so why are we so s*** at getting them right? Two women perform their experiences as they fall apart and come together. This is the beautiful and terrifying thing about relationships; we must be willing to completely reveal layers of ourselves to reach an authentic, tangible connection with another soul.

An evening of LOVE & SPAGHETTI also features two new performance works: Too Close to the Bone (Elisha Hamilton) and Sorry Flowers Die (Jay Yule & Tommy Cattin).

Too Close to the Bone (Elisha Hamilton)

The audience find themselves amongst a particular unnerving world as both you and I expose parts of our lustful or lust-less lives.

Sorry Flowers Die (Jay Yule & Tommy Cattin)

A shift between unknown and privacy is also a journey between absurdity and tenderness, a strange cohabitation that still reveals an inability to communicate as human beings.
