The Watch

written by Will Langley
directed by Amelia O'Loughlin

'The Watch' is a symbol of the beginning of the end. You are going to see the beginning of a full-length play. Set in one room in a council flat on an estate in West London, 'The Watch' is a post-Brexit, post-Trump apocalyptic, not-so-far-stretched imagining of the future. The play tells the story of a group of people stuck in a very bad situation.
Having broken the law in several ways, and started a riot on rival estate, Queensmead; how will the Wyndham crew cope with the pressure? Will they stay true to The Watch?

The Empty Space

written by Alexandria Turner
directed by Joshua Jewkes

Is it worth it worth it? Being an actor? The gruelling audition process. The hours of unpaid work. The emotional strain. The inconsistency of work. The pretending. How do we really feel when we enter The Empty Space?

Shark

written by Kieron Tufft
directed by Alexandria Anfield

Shark examines trauma and fears within the confines of love. Spanning several years the play invites you to examine how the characters change with the tide of the modern world, and the people they become while trying to make their love work.

These Four Walls

written by Amelia O'Loughlin
directed by Samuel Dunstan

These Four Walls is a timely and provocative tale of a young woman, Jess, living on the streets of London.
